sooo if any of you follow me on twitter you would know that, sadly, I had all but run out of my beloved lipstick by Urban Decay. I went to the store to pick up more when I discovered that UD was no longer even PRODUCING lipstick! just gloss...umm sometimes gloss is just too sticky and leaves a funny feeling on my mouth. Plus every time I use gloss I think of what my friend Tim told me:
"Lipgloss is like condoms for lips"
It's kiiiiinda true. I still laugh about it and unfortunately, I use to love lip gloss but don't wear it too often any more. PLUS my lips are pretty pale so I like having a little pop of color.
Enter: Urban Decay Lipstick in Naked.
I bought it about 2 months before our wedding. I instantly fell in love with the creamy formula and the color. it was neutral, subtle without being non-existent. I LOVED it. Well it finally got down to the very bottom of the tube and I couldn't buy more. So I spent a LOT of time trying to find a dupe for it...after weeks (maybe even months) of searching, I found NYX Thalia
As you can see - the match is PRETTY close. The reality is it is actually very different - NYX is a touch darker and not nearly as creamy as the UD.
Fast forward a few weeks to last night. LAST NIGHT people. I was sitting at the table while The Husband was making dinner and I was getting ready to flip through the new Ulta ad and there it was ON THE FRONT PAGE!!!
I honestly could NOT believe it so I went to UD's website:
There it is!!! I am so excited! I know the price is a little high for lipstick but that sucker lasted me three years! ok it probably wasn't THAT long because for the first year I didn't use it EVERY DAY but after that I was pretty faithful in putting it on at least once a day. So this girl will definitely be picking that sucker up in the next couple days. To say I'm excited is, sadly, an understatement! I told The Husband that I will buy one now and hope for one in a stocking at Christmas haha! That should last me a while!
