I love this gloss so much but the smell is awful for the first time but the second time, it's not a big problem:)
These glosses are the coolest! The name "Pocket Rocket", the shades, the packaging, and the fact that each is named after a guy's name. Not sure why Urban Decay had to discontinue this. I feel like Urban Decay is constantly discontinuing their lip products. I really liked Max. I can not repurchase.
I bought Colin (the bright red lip gloss) off of Amazon. It was really good value and I absolutely love the packaging! Colin is so hilarious and I love showing him off to my friends :)! The gloss feels really nice, it's not sticky but it still has good coverage. The smell is pretty strong I have to admit, but it's not a major issue as it did say when I bought it that it would smell the way it does, so I'm okay with that :)
The most major concern I had was that due to my skin tone (which implies that I should stick to lighter lip gloss shades or at least stay away from really bold shades) that maybe I couldn't pull off such a daring red, but actually it suits me really well. So anyone who has the same skin tone as me, don't be scared to rock the red :) xoxoxoxo
I bought Colin in bright red and I love it!! I think the packaging is absolutely hilarious and hot, you always get a laugh then an ooooh when you show the sexy fireman to people lol! The gloss feels really nice on my lips, not sticky at all and the color so fabulous it makes me confident. I'm definitely hooked on Colin;)
I absolutely love these glosses. I own Max (the surfer, which is a peachy color), and Colin (the fireman, a bright red). I got them on sale for about $5 each. I LOVE them. They go on beautifully, and are very glossy after you apply them, but settle down into a more flat version of the color after a while. They smell the Golden Grahms cereal, not a bad smell at all. I wear max every day, and sometimes mix it with Colin which looks really nice. Also, the packaging is adorable, it makes me smile everytime I use it. And the brush is very nice as well. I adore these, and though they are discontinued, continue to scour the Internet for them. I highly reccomend.
I bought this in Colin while it was on sale at Urban Decay & I absolutely love it! A lot of people say the smell is terrible, but I actually really like it. The brush is really nice and I love how it pops out on its own when you twist the top. The tube is nice and sleek and of course the holographic picture of a "stripping" guy is a cute touch.
I definitely want all of these!
OMG, THE SMELL!!!!! I have NEVER had problems with the scent of a makeup product before, but this LITERALLY made me NAUSEOUS and gave me a HORRIBLE HEADACHE! STAY AWAY!!!! YUCK!!!!!!
Yes the smell is different but to say it's God awful is a little much... It smells more like Cocoa Puffs cereal to me and I don't think it takes away from the gloss at all. In fact, it's nice where everything isn't fruit scented and these are no different.
I am a huge sucker for packaging, and I love love these. Each one having a different "outfit" is bonus too and I love giggling like a 10 year old girl every time I re-apply... which is only every few hours as this stuff has pretty good staying power. It is a bit sticky, but most glosses are and as long as you don't over-apply there should be no issues.
SO sad these are being discontinued... I am slowly picking them up from various online sources in the different colors as I expect to be using these for a long while in the future... (:
UPDATE: I now love this and use it everyday. It is very glossy but I like that, especially in winter when my lips need more moisture. The tube is huge--I have been using this daily for months and there is still lots of it left. Overall, it was a better buy than I initially thought.
So, I got "Kirk" a neutral brown. I love UD but this one is not a winner IMO. It is very glossy and the color does not show up at all. It kind of feels like petroleum jelly but somehow more viscous. It is very moisturizing and the feel is pretty much identical to the old ELF 2 in 1 conditioning glosses that you can sometimes pick up at the dollar store. For $1 you can get the gold color which is a neutral shimmer moisturizing gloss.
ELF's Glossy Gloss is similar but so much better at a fraction of the cost. Try that one if you are looking for a good glossy lip gloss. I also prefer ELF's mineral lip gloss to this. Really, this is ridiculously mediocre for the price. I got it for only $6 and still feel ripped off because I could have bought 2 ELF lip glosses for this price and more on BOGO.
I liked the texture of this gloss, on my lips it felt comfortable and not too sticky, unfortunatly I found the taste and smell revolting so had to remove it soon after as both did not fade. I found the packaging cute but overall if I cant stand wearing it what is the point, esoecially as its not cheap.
If you can try this on before buying and if you like the smell/taste.
