Urban Decay Pocket Rockets

The review I never thought I’d do. Urban Decay Pocket Rockets. When I first heard about/saw this product I thought…yeah um okay NO. I am a huge Urban Decay fan, don’t get me wrong…but guys in their underwear? Really? Pheromone packaging? Mmmmkay.

I was erm, not amused. I thought the whole idea was really tacky and silly. Maybe as a bachelorette party giveaway or something, but otherwise? yeah no.

But you know what? The glosses are um, kinda gorgeous. I never doubted they would be. I was sure the formula would be lovely; Urban Decay products are always very high quality. Urban Decay describes the texture of these glosses as “cushiony” and I would say that’s a great way to describe it. The gloss has a gel-like texture and feels very moisturizing on the lips. The formula also contains hyaluronic spheres. How fancy! :) The wand applicator has a brush instead of a doefoot, which I love.

The color I like best is Jesse (pictured above), a blackberry shade with good pigmentation. The other shade I tried is Doug (pictured below) which is a sort of generic sheer pink. It’s pretty, but not as unique as the other one. These do have a scent/flavor of creme brulee, which I’m not wild about but it’s tolerable. So uhh, I still hate the packaging…call me a prude, but I do…but I will still wear these because the formula is so fantastic.

One more thing…I think I’d really like to try the color “David”, which is a mauvey sorta color, but uh, my step-dad’s name is David and I’m not sure I could deal. lol. But Jesse is the name of a guy I used to have a huge crush on as a kid, so that works out fine, haha.

The best part of trying and reviewing these glosses was explaining them to my boyfriend.
Me: “And the packaging has pheromones in it so now you’re going to like, want me really bad.”
Boyfriend: “…I am?” -eyes gloss dubiously-
Me: “Yup.”
Boyfriend: “…hmm!”
