Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Glitter Rock on lips
I’m making the weekend last through Tuesday this week with Urban Decay’s new Stardust Sparkling Lip Glosses, because ooh-la-la, sis-boom-bah! — these sheer, sparkly glosses are just too much fun for regular weekends.
I’m still tracking down prices and availability on these and the other Urban Decay fall/holiday launches, but I think it’s safe to assume that these will cost around $16-19 each, right in line with the price of an average UD gloss.
Based on the three I’ve been getting to know since late last week — Space Cowboy (a shimmery champagne) Andromeda (a shimmery, peachy pinkish gold) and Glitter Rock (a shimmery magenta) — these are light on pigment but heavy on glitter and shine, and what I like most about them is the way they feel on my lips. There’s no grit to ‘em, as far as I can tell, unlike quite a few other glittery glosses on the market.
I wonder if Urban Decay based the formula on the one they use for the Lip Junkies, because they feel similarly thick and sticky to me, and for what it’s worth, the minty flavor and scent, while quite strong, doesn’t seem overly synthetic or sweet.
As far as wear time goes, I get about four hours from them between meals — excellent — or about three if I take a break for coffee or tea.
Thank goodness Urban Decay decided to incorporate a wand with a brush because I think it makes them that much easier to control. Seriously, I’ve never been the biggest fan of the slanted tip that accompanies the Lip Junkie tubes.

PRICE: TBA, but will probably loom around the $16-19 mark
