Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss Review and Swatches

All the hoopla and nekkid men that currently surround Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss has the potential to take away from a really great gloss.

Yes, yes I know you crazy girls are just interested in the men and the underwear that go along with the ride but seriously the gloss is the real star of this show.

Naked men on my gloss? Ok, ok you had me at naked. I told you a little something, something about Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss last week and it was mixed emotions about whether we loved the packaging or we just thought it was strange and slightly perverse. The Muse embraces all that perverse and deems the Pocket Rocket a must have lip gloss for Spring at the very least you can whip it out and tell your friends, "I'm wearing Kirk (or Jesse or Timothy, or James...) on my lips today!" Whoa, that sounded bad right?

Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss gets the award for great packaging. These uber slim glosses pack a whopping 0.27 oz of gloss for $18 USD. Ya know a MAC Lipglass is only 0.17 oz! Lots of pretty gloss and naked men what more could a girl want? Not only is the packaging slim but it's also a nice substantiate size gloss that fits comfortably in your hand. And bless be it comes with a brush applicator that doesn't split! The brush applicator is small enough to fit snug back into the tube and doesn't cause any splits or breaks in the brush because of it's small, neat design. I'm in heaven. I heart brush applicators the better for gooping on tons and tons of gloss.

The fun doesn't stop there!

Don't forget about our guys now! The top of each gloss has a guy who appears completely clothed when tilted one way but tilt it the other way to experience a wicked underwear clad male prancing around your gloss top. Oh my! Flip it over and get the back view too. Hey, some of us are errr dare I say...ass girls? Rub your gloss tube and experience a burst of pheromone so you're irresistible to your mate or your latest boy toy. My best friend Jai swears the waiter at our table was giving him the eye after he rubbed the back of the gloss but that's not much to go on considering he thinks every man gives him the eye.

I'm pretty properly chuffed with the formula on these guys. It has nice long wear with just the right amount of tack and stickiness that's it's not uncomfortable on the lips. The formula is comparable to a watered down version of MAC Lipglass which is fab as it lacks the tacky feeling of a lipglass and feels way more natural on the lips. Colors have been described as sheer from a few of my kind readers but I thought they had a nice bit of pigment to make lips look full and pretty. I was quite pleased with the overall pigmentation of the product, it's not wow aspiring but it's enough color to go without a lippie or a lip stain underneath. The flavor...hmmm that's in debate at the moment as it's growing on me. It's creme brulee flavor but at first I wasn't loving it but it slowly grew on me. I think it's way tastier than a lipglass that's for sure. The gloss has hyaluronic spheres meant to plump and fill lines and wrinkles. The gloss isn't terribly plumping to me but it does manage to give the illusion of fuller lips when layered on thickly. All the guys are vegan friendly too!

There are eight men to choose from so you'll never be left without choices! The Muse choose six of the eight men...she wasn't feeling men like Julio who had a kid...just couldn't dig the guy with a baby...too much emotional baggage for me to handle at the moment hehe! She went with Timothy, David, James, Eric, Jesse, and Kirk.

Timothy happens to be the all American. He's the guy you bring home to your parents and have them go "Awwww when's the wedding?" His color suits his personality as he sports an innocent watermelon pink that's has a pearl like finish. Your mum will be happy to have Timothy in the family.

Ahh David! The office man! David's a pretty matte mauve shade without sparkle or glimmer he's obviously perfect suitable for office wear.

James the emo kid. We all love a bit of emo don't we? James color doesn't suit his sulky mood as he's a popping shade of bright neon pink with an iridescent finish! You'd think he'd be more black and moody wouldn't you?

Eric has a bit of the European flair we'd like to see in an American male (I've never met one but I'm sure they are out there somewhere! This is why the Muse lets her taste run to British men.). His shade is a flaming red minus any sparkle or shimmer to kill the mood, he's perfect for an evening out, as sophisticated a red as Eric's personality I'm sure.

Ahhh Jesse! Totally the guy the Muse would go for 10 years ago. Jesse is the rocker and his color suits him to a T! Jesse is a deep purple with hints of maroon and red and a shimmering finish. Jesse is truly a bad, bad boy! Go on you know you want to be Jesse's girl!

Now Kirk isn't my normal type guy as he's a bit of a hippie but his shade sure does please. He quite reminds me of a subdued Midnight Cowboy without the shimmer and sparkle. Simple beige makes for a natural look and perfectly fitting with Kirk's "green friendly" personality.

Overall, I was freaked out about naked men on my gloss but now that I'm getting into the spirit of things I'm kinda loving these guys! The novelty of the packaging can be deemed cute at the very least, color selection is awesome, the quality of the gloss is pretty great, and the price tag isn't too bad either. Mmm yeah I like 'em and I think I'll go ahead and Muse Approve 'em for purchase! You have to try out at least one, go on now which is your guy?

The guys will be available on Urban Decay's site on March 15 and from Sephora April 1st.

Tried 'em?

Loving 'em?

Are they on your wish list?

Tell the Muse!

Wahaha! I love how you assess Timothy like a potential boyfriend. Who knows, he might be a fan of yours and just might Twitter you some day. Swoon!

I'd only consider using this lipgloss if one of the dudes was Frankie Godoy from Make Me a Supermodel. Remember that trashy mess?

I'm totally feeling the love for them right now... can't wait to get hold of Jesse and maybe David/Timothy!

Just one tiny little question my dear Muse... I looked up on and and I couldn't find them... are they on shop right now or did you buy them online? And if so, would you be kind enough to tell me :D?

I love you and your blog Muse! Ha ha ha you are slowly but effectivly turning me into a make up junkie ;)

Puff wants her paws on Kirk and David! Normally I'm not big on lip gloss but for the amount you get I'm chuffed! Honestly I'm not too much of a lippie girl, but I will definitely try to snag these! Also gonna grab myself some Beauty Balms by Too Faced (after trying the glosses in the Glamour to Go Palette I've fallen in love) and my new love Lip Venom!

Yay for new found lippie luff :)

I have a mix feeling when I saw this gloss. I think they look adorable when applied but the men on them just turn me off. I think it's very tacky. If I were to get them, I think I will have to find something to cover those image up. I mean... what're they to do on my lip gloss?!?!?!? I like the size and the packaging minus the men though.

Where's the hot Asian boy?!?? But hehe, guys in their undies. Still.. hot.. I suppose. =D

I do like the colors though! I like sheer lip glosses because they're easier to apply without a mirror, and when it wears off, it's not so obvious that your lip gloss/stick wore off. =D

hey Vichaya!

I think UD meant for it to be tacky :-D the packaging is a huge plus as the gloss is very very big however I understand how you are feeling about the's not for everyone :-D Imagine a 45 year old lady carrying these around? lol! But I guess it's all in good fun..mostly I was wow'ed by the actually size of the gloss and the nice shades so I can deal with the men for all that ;)
