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! continued >>
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.
I got it for 5 dollars cuz it was on sale. the color i bought is jesse, which is a shiny purple-ish color. a lot of people complain about the smell and yes i agree with y'all, it does smell like syrup and it comes quite strong. if you dont like those kinda smell, this might not be the right gloss for you. as for me, i don't care about smell at all and it doesnt bother me. lip gloss is certainly sticky, even though people have very different definitions on stickiness and i garuantee you, you will always find people think any lip gloss sticky even the best lip glosses. i am not that picky so i am happy with it. the color is very visible on my lips and very shiny. it dries my lips out a little, but not really that bad, hey it's urban decay and the original price is like what, 15 dollars? you get what you pay for. so, it's a decent lip gloss i would say.
I really like the packaging (not the pictures, I could care less about those): it's sleek, unusual and when you twist open the cap the brush pops up automatically, which is cool. I really like that it's a brush applicator as well and Kirk is a great shiny nude colour gloss. I like the smell but I don't find it overwhelming and you barely notice it when you have it on. It smells very strongly of oatmeal cookies. It feels moisturising as well actually. I don't understand why everyone's saying you get a lot of product and it's value for money though: this is 8ml compared to my Shu gloss which is 14ml.
But Kirk is a good gloss and I rec it. I tried Doug as well and it was a subtle purple that looked good as well.
I got this from ud when they had their sale I got it for $5. I purchased it in the shade Jesse, it's a pretty wine color. The tube is super cute and slim and it comes with a little brush applicator. Although I love the color and the look I can't stand the smell. I wear it from time to time and I usually layer it with something else that doesn't small and it masks the stench.
