Are you hooked? Urban Decay Lip Junkie

As you may have seen from my 28kisses lip
challenge, I am sliiightly addicted to lip products – lipsticks, lip stain, lip
gloss – anything that helps my mouth detract from my awwwwwful jokes is good with

And so – I just HAD to mention this aptly named product – the Lip Junkie
by Urban Decay.

It’s slick, it’s shiny and most importantly IT LOOKS AWESOME!  It
looks like a lipgloss version of a jewelled sword. A perfect weapon of choice
for shiny lips. 
MWAHA! Bad joke number one..

And it tastes yummy too.

It tastes minty with a slight hint of rose, and I’m pretty sure the menthol
helps plump my lips up too. 

I hate glosses that have that artificial taste and
smell – like barbies dipped in vanilla, bleurgh. (interestingly my PC is
suggesting babies dipped in vanilla but that’s a whole different, most likely
illegal, suggestion altogether)

Moving on!

Applied directly to the lips, this gloss lasted about 2 hours before starting to
clump around the sides. Not bad.

The colour is Flushed – a lovely mid-pink that
looks really natural and pretty. 

On the lips its soft and padded and feels really luxurious.

The only downside I’d say is the applicator – its fine for finger application fans  but takes some getting used to if you like direct and accurate wand

Urban Decay do a whooole range of colours, including a unique
sheer black colour called Perversion which also contains lip plumpers! Think I’ve
found the next gloss for my list..!

You can buy Lip Junkie, plus the rest of the Urban Decay
range, on Look Fantastic where the Lip Junkie currently sells for £13  (RRP £16.77)

Any other huge URBAN DECAY fans out there? Anyone tried this? What do you think?

Has anyone tried the black gloss??

    Oh I did like the look of these but now I have seen that it doesn't have one of the doe foot type applicators I'm a bit disappointed. I don't like the type of applicator this has 🙁
