Review & Swatches: Urban Decay Lipgloss Junkie

What is it?

A decadent lip gloss (with a delicious vanilla-mint flavor!) that allows you to get hooked on the shine, without the sticky hangover.

They describe it as:

You want a super-shiny gloss, but can’t stand the sticky texture? Get your shine fix with Lip Junkie. The soft, cushiony texture goes on smoothly and stays put longer than other glosses. You also get a great color pay-out (sometimes hard to find in a gloss) and a range of amazing shades, including sheer, pretty neutrals, knockout brights, and a glimmering nearly black. The range of textures and shades will hook even the most jaded junkie. The key ingredient, Maxi-Lip™, plumps lips an average of 40% when used daily for a month. (Lip Junkie uses non-irritant plumpers, unlike other glosses that use stinging ingredients to inflame your lips.) The Maxi-Lip actually helps your lips become better defined, super-hydrated, and full. And the flavor?  Think yummy wedding mints… a sweet vanilla mint with a little zing that makes breath feel fresh. Addicted, yet?

Overall Opinion:

I think these Lipglosses are great!  I’m not a huge fan of the flavor, but the glossy shine and the different colors are really fantastic.  They definitely stepped out of the box with these colors.  The ones I was given to review are quite different and most of youmight not like the darker shades but they work well with medium to dark skin tones.  My favorite color of them all would have to be Midnight Cowboy. I’m a total sucker for nude lips and Midnight cowboy has a fabulous sparkle pop to it.

Thanks for the review. I’m a total lipgloss addict, so I enjoyed the review. Thanks again!

i loved the review but maybe a better picture of the lips, or better swatches next time. kind of hard to tell what the colour looks like…

IM TRYING TO GET BACK INTO LIPSTICK AND YOU’VE TOTALLY WOKE UP THE OLD LIPGLOSS HOE AGAIN! They look like a worthy buy for the price and I too love a nude glossy lip (tried Lady GaGa’s new nude for MAC?- LOVES IT). SO now I’ll sneak back out to Ulta for @least 3 of these! Thanks Taryn.

Hi! These look great! My question is why you haven´t swatched all the colors?
I went to to buy them and found 3 new colors?! but have no idea what they look like..

and I agree with Jessica on her comment on the lip-pictures. Not easy to get a really good impression.

Can´t wait to try them on though! :)

Marlena didn’t give me all of the colors or else I would have swatched all of them. Trust me I’m not holding out on you! I have to hit size requirements for my photos so that was the largest I could go. Sorry.

You guys realize that you can click on the lips and make the picture bigger right? The picture is great and review also Taryn

oh no…i’m already trying to cure myself of my addiction to Buxom lipgloss but now I just gotta have these!!!

i love the ‘midnight cowboy’. i got the sample one when i went to Ulta. they have a deal going on right now( in store and online). when u buy $25 in urban decay products you get two lip glosses and an eyeshadow free.

I have Midnight Cowboy, which is really pretty and the scent is fantastic. It’s so yummy, I think this gloss could easily become addictive. I even love the pretty purple cap.

I normally am not a big fan of lip glosses. I hate the sticky and gooey and the fact that my hair always finds a way to attach fly into my gloss and wipe it all over my face. I usually stick to NARS lip gloss, but is smells so nasty and tastes like chemicals. I think I might have to convert to these. Thanks for the review!

I have the color ‘Peroxide’ and I absolutely ADORE it. The minty smell isn’t my favorite, but the texture and color surpass the smell by far. Love Junkie is really pretty! Might have to pick that one up too.
