If you have been following Lip Stalker since the beginning, you will have read Part 1 and Part 2 of the Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss Collection. Today is the final instalment showcasing Julio, Max and Kirk.
As I mentioned previously, I have a lot of love for the Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss Collection. It has been a pleasure to swatch and all the colours are spectacular in their own way. And I’ve got to mention the *blush* factor from the fit men in various states of undress from the raunchy packaging. The burnt caramel smell is also a delight to smell.
Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss Swatches
Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss – Julio
Julio is a clear gloss with ivory microshimmer. Great on its own or on top of a lipstick.
Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss – Max
Max is a beige caramel shade, which looks great swatched on my arm, but my lips didn’t do it justice when it was heavily applied. But when blotted, Max blends in much better. This would have to be my least favourite out of such a successful collection.
Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss – Kirk
Kirk is a sheer honey shade which genuinely surprised me because I didn’t quite fancy it till I swatched it on my lips.
AU : No Australian stockists, so buying online is a must
US : $19 from Urban Decay
UK : £13 from Debenhams
Which one do you like the most out of these 3 shades?
Kit Cosmetics is an Australia brand I have grown to love as it embraces colour and is so funky!
Simply stunning! I have a penchant for coral lipsticks and as you can see, Fire Lighter is a pretty peachy-pink beauty. Application is easy peasy and the formula is moisturising. Lasting power is average. Sadly, the simple black packaging means that it can get neglected amongst my sea of lipsticks.
There are rumours that this is a dupe of MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Vegas Volt, but seeing as I am scared to approach the MAC counter (Hello, scary MAC Sales people!), I can neither confirm nor deny this rumour.

Non-Aussie readers will be disappointed after reading this lip balm review because endota spa is only available in Australia!
Seriously, this endota spa lip balm is one of the best lip balms I have EVER tried! My lips have been getting a lot of action lately (from swatching!) and they were cracked and my vertical lip lines were angry and deep. One afternoon, I cracked (pun intended) open this baby and applied this and re-applied 2 hours later. After I showered in the evening and sat down to dry my hair, I realised my lips were feeling nice and soft…and it was all because of endota spa organic lip balm in cinnamon & honey.
The cinnamon provides an initial 10-second kick and plumps up the lips – which would explain how it helped with filling out my deep vertical lip lines. The certified organic honey provides nourishment and soothes cracked lips. Altogether with the hygienic slanted tip applicator makes a winning lip balm.
It’s a tad pricey at $17 AUD, but it’s a high quality organic lip product which works wonders on dry, cracked lips. Is it my Holy Grail lip balm…? For now, yes, yes, yes!!
Nude by Nature have created a winning trio of natural mineral lip glosses which do not have any petrochemicals, parabens, nasty ingredients and they don’t support animal testing. The Pure Pout trio pack comes with Naked Kiss, Pure Plum and Virgin Blush – a couple of risqué names there!
To be honest, the plain brown packaging with the air bubbles in the formula do not scream “Buy me!” However, one thing I have learnt, as a beauty junkie, is that it’s not the packaging, but it’s what is inside that counts. And Nude by Nature have certainly delivered with these non-sticky, very shiny lip glosses which instantly fills in any lip lines and hides flakies. It’s slighty scented with a coffee mint smell…but then again, I don’t trust my nasal interpretations. It’s not my favourite scent but I don’t dislike it. More props for the hygienic slanted tip applicator!

Naked Kiss is a peachy shimmer, Pure Plum is a plummy shimmer and Virgin Blush is a browny shimmer (which looks better on lips than on my arm!).

My favourite amongst the trio is Naked Kiss because it makes my lips look kiss-able! Which one is your favourite out of the Nude By Nature trio?
On most Mondays, we will be Lip Stalking a lucky lady. For your opportunity to feature you and your lips here, please read this.
Today we are lip stalking Katy Potaty who is also known as the Cupcake Lady. Please check out her amazing website and be prepared to drool over the fantastic cakes she bakes!
Katy says :
I absolutely LOVE Ciccone Cosmetics Oceanus; it’s a long-wearing creamy coral, which suits both warm and cool skintones (I’ve lent it to my bestie who has cool porcelain skin and dark hair and it looks brilliant on her too)! The texture is similar to old-school Revlon lippies, that is, it goes on quite thickly and sits on the surface of your lips until you do the old smackeroo and rub them together. Once you’ve warmed it up a little, it soaks in and provides a lasting pop of colour.
It’s definitely not a drying lipstick, although if your lips are dry prior to applying, I’d use a lip scrub and them apply a balm before the lipstick, as it does show up any flakey spots. The packaging is cute and quite heavy-duty, it has survived rolling around in the bottom of my enormous day bag with bottles of perfume, bobby pins and all sorts of junk!
If like me, you are caught up in this Summer’s love for coral and can find a Ciccone lipstick stockist near you – buy this, it’s amazing and I’ve not found a better colour!
Lip Stalker also has the same lipstick and always gets complimented when wearing it. Do you like it too?
Artists splat paint on a canvas and call it modern art. I applied the same principle to this Strawberries & Cream Lip Art, which was inspired by this yummy Chupa Chups lollipop. Looking back, I should have applied lip liner to tidy the edges but I was dying to eat my lollipop!
Lip products featured are Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip-Fix Cream, Vani-T Krush Minerals Lip Crayon in Scandal and endota spa organic lip balm in cinnamon & honey.
