I’ve Been Licked! Must Be New Urban Decay Honey Sparkling Lickable Body Powder’s Fault

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care

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

    Omg, i’ve been eyeing these up for quite some time, UKers need to get these things at the same time, the suspense is too much! I can’t take it! Got the jackpot set on the way too, just to jazzy up my naked palette! x3

    And in reply to your other post (sorry I didn’t reply there) I am meeting my lovely boyfriend at the train station (so not glamorous, I need to look my most spectaculor as I get off the train, too!) And meeting/staying/having a meal with his parents! πŸ˜€

    I would like to give these a try at Sephora because I love flavoured cosmetics. It reminds me of the old Jessica Simpson Dessert line.

  7. hahah I kind of love this. The marshmallow one sounds yummy, but powders that get all over the place are such a pain. If this came in pressed form, I would like it a lot better.
    p.s. hit the bottom of my nutella jar today. major cravings right now!

    I have the old version of this. (Plus a few of the previous scents Urban Decay has had on the market). Smelled great, looked fab but didn’t taste amazing. I will have to try this in store. πŸ™‚

    I agree with the packaging, it flies around everywhere if you happen to open it at the wrong angle. When I moved last year, it made the product settle at a strange angle. When I went to open it one day, it made a huge mess.

    They had buy 1 get 1 free on huge jars of Nutella last week at the grocery store. Am loaded for at least the next 6 months πŸ™‚

    My friend sells Pure Romance products and they have something similar called Body Bling. I have that one, and it smells and tastes good. It’s Vanilla/Honey flavor also

    Mmmmmmmmm… metallic NutraSweet! πŸ™‚ That really does sound awful, though maybe the marshmallow would be a little better. I’ll let one of the other brave souls give that a try! I will say that the box is tasselicious, though.

  12. Nina says:

    might not be for me bec i sneeze when powdered … but that would make awesome holiday gifts for the lovely ladies in my life! its so pretty and luxurious and really, really reminds me of holidays and awesome presents! πŸ™‚

  13. knownever says:

    I wish these came in more kooky flavor/scents. It’s such a non-useful, purely fun product that I wish Urban Decay really went crazy and over the top the way they used to.

    the marshmallow one is ten times better. it tastes AMAZING, but the white shimmer is kind of annoyiing. now, TOASTED marshmallow would be a nice colour…
