Urban Decay Discontinues Lip Junkie. Oh what a sad day. I have confirmed through the brand’s PR representative that Urban Decay is discontinuing the Lip Junkie line. I love everything about this gloss…the minty taste….the non sticky feel….the FANTASTIC colors.
From UD: You want a super-shiny gloss, but can’t stand the sticky texture, right? Wait till you feel the soft, cushiony texture of this gloss! Lip Junkie stays put longer than other glosses, but never feels gummy or gooey. It comes in a range of pretty amazing shades (if we do say so ourselves), and the color payout is amazing. Take your pick from sheer pretty neutrals, kick-ass brights, or glimmering near-black. And the flavor? Think yummy wedding mints… a sweet mint with a little zing that makes breath feel fresh. Our bonus ingredient, Maxi-Lip™, even plumps lips an average of 40% when used daily for a month. (Maxi-Lip is a non-irritant plumping ingredient that don’t sting or inflame your lips like other short-term plumpers can.) Our superstar ingredient can actually help your lips become better defined, super hydrated and full. YES, PLEASE! Our sleek gloss tube is molded, not crimped, no more worrying about lip gloss explosions in your bag. (Finally!) We finished it off with a soft angled tip that lays down a smooth, precise application without mess. This gloss will hook even you jaded junkies.
The glosses are already out of Sephora stores (they went when they did an update recently and the NAKED product line (including the new glosses) are now squarely in the lower center shelf where the lip junkies used to live. Sephora still has them online, BUT if you REALLY want to grab the good, head over to urbandecay.com where they are only $8.
Here is a list of the shades still available for sale on the UD website (why buy at Sephora when you can get it for 60% off here?)
- Obsessed creamy baby pink
- Flushed creamy mauve pink
- Trashed bright pink shimmer
- Naked2 light sheer beige
- Strip medium mauve nude
- Streak light sheer peachy nude
- Naked pinky neutral
- Jilted deep pink sparkle
- Love Junkie sheer dark red
- Crush bright hot pink
- Peroxide light pink
- Wallflower nude creamy pink
- Midnight Cowboy sheer nude sparkle
- Red Light bright pinky red
Whether they discontinue or simply reformulate (highly doubtlful) the lip junkie as we know and love it is gone. So buy all your backups now!
