Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Walk of Shame, Liar, Freestyle and Beso

Urban Decay just keep adding to the Naked line.  We have Nakeds 1, 2 and 3 eyeshadow palettes, Naked Basics (mini eyeshadow palette), Naked Flushed (blush), Naked double-ended 24/7 eyeliners, and Naked Illuminated (scarily sparkly highlighter).  And now, Naked lipgloss.  I predict that there'll be a nude range of nail polishes next.

Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss comes in nine shades, four of which I have ready to swatch.  The formula is very soft, very plush, and definitely falls into the lip-balm-gloss category - it's silky on the lip rather than tacky.  Wearing it for a few hours does leave me with nourished feeling lips, and wear is reasonable - three or four hours before it vanishes.  There's an ever so slight minty tingle, but it's very subtle.

The applicator is a slightly-longer than usual doe's foot, with a slight angle to it.  It makes for a fairly normal application.

Walk of Shame, Liar, Freestyle, Beso
Swatched, the glosses are super-shiny with a hint of colour.  

Walk of Shame
Walk of Shame is a light nude pink.  It's very natural on my lips, almost looking like a clear gloss, although it does have a nice milkiness which makes it a little more noticeable.

Liar is more of a soft mid-pink, again with a milky edge.  It's not massively different from Walk of Shame, though.

Freestyle is a more brown-based nude, with a hefty dose of golden shimmer to it.  

And finally, Beso - my favourite.  It's a berry-nude, with a still natural tint of pink-berry to it.

All in all, these are lovely glosses, and will appeal particularly if you're fond of smoky-eyes-and-nude-lips.  That said, the nine shades aren't massively different from each other, thanks to the sheerness of the colour.  Don't invest in all of them - but if you like a soft, nude glossy lipgloss with a moisturising, comfortable formula, it's well worth choosing a shade or two.

These launch on February 1st, and will cost £14 each.  Find them at BeautyBay, Debenhams, HQHair or House of Fraser when the time comes.
