Write on, Urban Decay.
I love holding the pencils in your new 13-piece spring 2012 collection over a blank page in my sketchbook and pretending they’re art supplies.
Of course, I don’t actually touch the page with ’em, but I’m soooo tempted…
Coming soon to Sephora stores, Ulta, urbandecay.com and select Macy’s stores, the collection features eight 24/7 Concealer Pencils (with four new shades for darker damsels), three full-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (sold individually) and two new Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors.
I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about the feel of a good pencil in my hands.
Here are swatches and pics! Reviews coming soon.
Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild on the left (a pale pink) and Apocalypse on the right (a deep berry), $19 each
24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils from the left: Woodstock (a bright fuchsia pink shimmer with silver micro glitter), Perversion (a matte carbon black) and Demolition (a matte dark brown), $19 each

In other beauty news…
ChloÃ© fragrance fans, here’s some cool news. The line’s launching a new scent for spring called L’Eau de ChloÃ©, arriving mid-February. No word yet on the notes, but from this teaser video, it looks like something fresh and grassy.
Let’s hope it doesn’t make me want to pop a Zyrtec.
Fellow NARS nixies, the company just posted two more spring tidbits on their Facebook page, hot pink Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, and the Trio Eyeshadow in Douce France, with a shimmery icy pink, a shimmery rose-petal pink and a deep matte rose.
I’m not sure about the pink on my eyes (might make me look like I’ve been crying), but I’m all over that Lip Pencil!
And in Benefit news, the brand’s introducing a new liquid golden bronze highlighter called Sun Beam ($26) that looks very promising…
Here’s to hoping for sunshine in a bottle.
