Lovechild and Apocalypse Walked Into a Bar… No, It’s Not a Joke. They’re Urban Decay’s Newest Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors

Wearing Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Lovechild

I get amped every Friday afternoon because it means we made it to the weekend, and I get both of my boys all to myself for two whole days. Usually breakfast out on Saturday or Sunday morning, a movie or two (or three), maybe dinner, the mall, and of course, staying up late to watch TV.


That right there’d be plenty exciting, but then I also find out that Urban Decay just added two new shades to their fab Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color line?

Now it’s cause for celebration! πŸ™‚

Urban DecayC’mon, chair dance with me! This is excellent news. Think of all the trouble we’ll get into fun we’ll have wearing these new shades.

Lovechild (a pale pink) and Apocalypse (a deep berry) are just as much fun as their older sisters. Shortly after the line of long-wearing pencils drew down on Urban Decay counters last fall, they became staples in my makeup bag. Their bright colors and glossy, moisturizing formula (unscented and unflavored) made them favorites of mine.

Pale pink Lovechild’s the mellower of the two newcomers, and at first swatch, I was afraid it might be too pale and cool-toned for me.

Thankfully, it’s not! The sweet, delicate pink should suit most skin tones, but interestingly, it does seem to fade quicker than the brighter Super-Saturated shades I’ve tried; you might have to reapply after sipping tea and/or eating crumpets.

As for drama lovers, there’s always Apocalypse. Wearing it with my new pink streaks, I feel like a rockstar! — and, oddly, have the urge to don a pair of brass knuckles and break sh*t.

Which might be too much information…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. What are you up to tonight? Doing anything fun? I went to a yoga class earlier, and now I’m just chilling at home. I’m re-watching that old episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations where he went to Beirut and couldn’t get out during an uprising. Before that I watched the first episode of Project Runway: Allstars (wasn’t too impressed). Yep, it’s a TV night. πŸ™‚

    I LOVE your new hair! You look fabulous, Karen! Its something Ive wanted to get done myself and I think you just *may* have pushed me into taking the plunge. πŸ˜‰

  4. Tracy says:

    Hey Karen! Love the new hair and the pink! It looks awesome on you! Like the looks of Apocalypse a lot-it would be good to put in my Z-Day makeup bag.
    I’d love to try out yoga too. Will need to look for a class!

  5. Adrienne says:

    Loooove the hair!! You go girl!!
    Im loving Apocalypse!! Though it is reminding me of one of my new faves, Plum Bright from MAC’s fall collection. If you have it to comPare, how would you say they compare?

    And Woodstock as a liner, GAHH, so much fun!!! I wish I was a shadow pencil though, I think I’d get more use out of it, since pink around the eyes can risk making a lot of people (including me) look like I’ve been crying.

    • Jadyn says:

      I’ve learned that by lining your eyes with a darker color then adding Woodstock on the inner fourth to inner corner, it doesn’t look like you’ve been crying but like you just added a fun pop of color. πŸ™‚

      • Adrienne says:

        Thanks for the tip πŸ™‚
        ive been thinking of picking up the mini pencil set UD put out around the holidays tha has Woodstock in it, I’ll have to give this a try if I do!

  6. Melodie says:

    Oh wow, your hair looks fantastic! I’m trying to grow mine out so I’m avoiding bleach, but I want color again!

  7. Quinctia says:

    Lovechild is my fave of the two, though I’d have to swatch it to see how it’d do against my pigmented lips. Wish I could rock Apocalypse, but it’d get close to burgundy on me, I wager, and I’m too pale for that.

  8. Rads says:

    Your hair… it!!!!

  9. Marina says:

    I definitely love your new hair, fun! And those UD pencils/glosses are beautiful, can’t wait till we get them here (February?!, heh)
    Maybe you could do a post on the films you enjoy the most one day. I know that you mention those from time to time but would be cool to see them in one place πŸ™‚
