Wearing Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Midnight Cowboy
So who’s ready to go nude with me? Wait — button up those skinny jeans, ya perverts (although I applaud you for your willingness to let it all hang out!); I’m talking about the two newest additions to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil line ($18 each).
Waterproof, with a matte finish and a creamy texture that’s smoother than my favorite werewolf’s chest, rosy nude Illegal and plummy nude Midnight Cowboy live up to the long-lasting standard set by UD’s pencil liners, staying put for about six to eight hours on my lips.
This morning I slipped into Illegal, and two big @ss bottles of water, a chai tea latte and a bowl of pumpkin soup later it still looked (almost) as good as new.

These also don’t leave my lips flaky or dry like some of the other matte lip liners I’ve tried, perhaps due to the jojoba oil and vitamin E they contain.
Mostly I’ve worn them by themselves — just line, fill and go — but you could easily spruce ‘em up by adding your favorite clear or nude gloss on top.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s and urbandecay.com

It’s Monday Magazine Mania!!!
Last night, as the weekend wound to a close, I won’t say I was dreading today, but I think it’s fair to say I wasn’t head-over-heels ecstatic about the idea of another Monday.
But then today arrived, and I gotta say — this particular Monday wasn’t that bad at all. I told myself this morning that I was going to power through the day with a positive attitude, and lo and behold, it actually worked! Now I plan to reward myself with one uninterrupted hour on the couch with Vogue, O and Cosmo.
How was the rest of your day? Do you mind if I ask what’s for dinner tonight? I’m hella hungry right now…
