I wonder what Willy Wonka would have to say about new Urban Decay Honey Sparkling Lickable Body Powder ($29 for 0.78oz). Based on the name, doesn’t it sound like something he’d like?
A loose powder with colored glitter for your bod, it’s part of Urban Decay’s new line of Sparkling Lickable Body Powders released for the holidays, and it couldn’t be a whole lot easier to use.
With the included puff, just apply to arms, legs or anywhere else, and because it’s Urban Decay, the glitter’s fairly obvious, in other words, BLING!
I like the glittery look it bestows to my skin, but glitter doesn’t make the product stand out; this one’s more a matter of taste, as in the fact that it’s edible.
If honey’s not your cup of tea (a shimmery golden glitter with — SURPRISE! — a honey flavor and scent), it also comes in Marshmallow (a shimmery white glitter that tastes/smells like marshmallow) and Cocoa (a shimmery bronze that tastes/smells like chocolate).
So, are they magically delicious?

In a word, no (at least the honey one isn’t to me). But they’re not meant to be devoured.
I definitely like the fragrance more than the taste, which reminds me of metallic aspartame (Ha! I almost typed Metallica), but I’m a hound for honey and may be harder than most to please (bears love honey, and I’m a regular Pooh Bear!).:)
If you do decide to give it a try, CAUTION: be careful when you open the box. The powder has a tendency to get all over the place (both intentionally and not). I even got a little on Tabs…but I didn’t think he’d mind. After all, like all of UD products, this one’s also cruelty free.
Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: I kinda hate the taste, but I like the way Sparkling Lickable Body Powder in Honey looks and smells. Not surprisingly, it sparkles! — and leaves behind a yummy scent.
If you happen upon someone who enjoys the taste of metallic NutraSweet, SCORE! They’ll have a lot to lick, but ask them to chip in a few bucks because this snack’s also expensive. Available now at Sephora stores and online at urbandecay.com. Grade: B
