The place are all of the bare dudes?!
It’s a totally official query to ask whenever you’re speaking about new City Decay Hello-Fi Shine Extremely Cushion Lip Gloss, as a result of, as you may bear in mind…
In fact you bear in mind, and don’t play such as you don’t! 🙂
UD did that line of lipglosses again within the day with holographic footage of half-naked dudes on the caps (THEY WERE CALLED POCKET ROCKET. There. *snaps* Sorry, took me a second to recollect.), and whenever you turned the caps, they’d go from smiling and posing like catalog fashions, to wanting over their shoulder in tight purple boxer briefs.
It was so cheeky, loopy and enjoyable, and fairly a unique type for UD on the time — not their common tattoos and piercings cool lady vibe. It’s laborious to think about they did one thing like that, however I assume if folks can change and evolve, so can make-up manufacturers.
City Decay glosses by way of the years…
An amalgam of two traditional lipgloss strains
These new $20 plumping lipglosses do NOT have any Magic Mike motion occurring on their caps (sorry to disappoint you, ya pervert), however they nonetheless bought it goin’ on.
Till just lately, UD had two separate gloss strains — Revolution and Bare — however they phased them out and changed them with this line, Hello-Fi Shine.
These are principally the outdated Bare gloss formulation with an extra plumping ingredient, new packaging and new colours. UD carried over a few of the Revolution shades (Revolution was their brighter line) and Bare shades (Bare was their nudes line), and added some others. Then they divided all of them amongst 4 finishes — Cream, Sheer Cream, Holographic and Metallic.
Outdated flames and new loves
I’m glad they saved the colours I put on on a regular basis, like Beso (a creamy, deep pinkish mauve), Fireball, Bare and Snitch (OMG, this coral!), in addition they added some new potential stars, like shiny purple Jawbreaker and creamy mauve pinkish nude Backtalk.
OK, now, the Bare glosses had been tremendous minty… That was the large factor about them, however have a seat, and gradual your roll. These are NOT toothpaste glosses, thank goodness; in any other case, I wouldn’t have touched ’em with a 10-foot pole.
Granted, the minty taste and scent are robust, but it surely’s extra like a tasty after-dinner peppermint than Colgate… There’s additionally alleged to be a vanilla word up in there, but it surely will get overshadowed by the mint. Both method, whether or not the mint fades, or whether or not I simply get used to it, I don’t discover it after 5 minutes or so.
These glosses really feel EXACTLY just like the Bare glosses to me. Truly, the medium-weight, reasonably moisturizing non-sticky formulation additionally feels precisely just like the NARS glosses. You may undoubtedly really feel them sitting in your lips and slipping and gliding between them. It’s a “current” kind of feeling, but it surely isn’t heavy just like the old-school MAC Lipglasses.
As for put on time, I get two or three hours tops. I like to stay one of many impartial ones in my purse or my pocket, and I don’t thoughts touching up all through the day as a result of I exploit the facet of the gloss packaging, which could be very reflective, as a mirror.
Let me do this proper now… I’ve Midnight Cowboy on my desk, so let’s contact up. 🙂 Ooh, so sheer! So golden pink. Completely a Karen coloration.
Oh, they usually’re tingly! — however just a bit. It’s perhaps simply shy of a pin prick, and it’s because of the plumping ingredient, which is barely however noticeable (so don’t anticipate Kylie Jenner lips, dude).
Undoubtedly try Beso, Bare, Midnight Cowgirl, Fireball and Obsessed, when you’re a nude lips lady, and in case your going by way of a brights part, search for Jawbreaker, Large Bang, Bang and Savage. I believe you’ll dig these.
You will discover them now on the common haunts — Sephora, Ulta and the UD web site. Choose Macy’s too!
I like these… I used to be just a little unhappy to see the Bare glosses go bye-bye, however UD saved the spirit of them with these.
