This is absolutely a must have for me! It is great to set makeup but I like it even better just worn alone. It is perfect for those who cannot ever find a light enough color to match our skin and/or for those who have the problem of colored powders oxidizing and changing- this won't do that! It looks extremely natural on, even if I build it up a bit around my nose or some other red area it will sort of sink into your skin and not look cakey. Using this makes me appear as if I have the best skin without even having to try because it reduces shine while still leaving the skin natural looking and reduces any redness or blotchiness making the complexion more even. I love to keep my skin clear and shine free by using this after using the B6 Spray. Although I like the old compact's design and size better I will never be without this so please keep making it- there is nothing like it out there!! The Tea Tree Oil is a great and gentle way to help keep skin clear and gives the powder a lovely, fresh scent plus I love the large mirror!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was hesitant due to the price but finally gave in, I believe during the FF sale. This profuct is AWESOME for everyone, I think, but especially lazy Me. I try to keep my skin PERFECT!! But, I am ALSO pretty lazy... I extremely rarely (literally only about 4x a year, now) wear makeup and so the majority of my "beauty purchases" go towards skin-care rather than makeup, and I DEMAND results!!
This really delivers and despite the high cost I am definitely going to re-purchase due to the lovely, redness reducing, decreased grease-face, shrunken pores, improved overall texture and a sort of just "healthy-glowy-radiance" I enjoy seeing (even in REALLY horrible lighting, btw.)
Also, this is just SO EASY! A few sprays and finished. I use this a few times a day and the only complaint I have is it sometimes feels tight or sort of like a tacky/sticky/hairspray-ish feel is left on my face but I think that is because I sometimes am guilty of overspraying and/or spraying too close. But even this issue I do not mind. I'd rather the product sink into my skin rather than fly all about into the air. I find once this has been absorbed the shine is definitely reduced and pores tightened but this does not last all that long for me but the overall results are really just GREAT!
Thank you for adding this fluid form of skincare to your line. I know that I personally have been using more and more liquid products this past year (aside from eyes & lips, which this is beneficial for also) and have been seeing much improved and more results faster. I totally recommend this!
Pros so easy & fast, really works, non-scented
Cons a bit pricey
Yes, I recommend this product.

Decadently creamy, long-lasting color, a wide variety of textures, and a sweet lick of crème caramel... our Lipstick is a weapon of love.

These uniquely and wonderfuly designed purple tubes of brilliant colors with a few brilliant different formulations is the absolute BEST BRAND AROUND! When UD L/S were discontinued years ago, it was terrible! BUT when they made their re-appearance a few yrs ago one Fall, when I was stuck to glosses, I was overjoyed at the nearly 30 UD STYLED colors, formulas, and, names available. 3 more shades, Naked, Confession & Oil Slick were released the next Fall, but by then totally made the turn for lipstick in a VERY URBAN DECAY WAY:) The briliant shades were a mix of full coverage, sheer/buildable, shimmer, microglitter, or no glitter at all and fully explained on the site. THEY WERE housed in the most AWESOME TUBE ANYONE HAS EVER SEEN and EVERYONE (ESPECIALLY ME!) wanted them! However, so very few shades remain my review will be of my always UD Attitude while seeing and using these PERFECT LIPSTICKS. My first color Indecent was a gift, I wanted to ease my way into l/s and this soft peach shimmery shade was like gloss in tube form. I LOVED IT AND HAVE GONE ON SEVERAL L/S SPREES HERE! You get not just color but IMMEDIATE PLUMPING W THESE! NO WAITING! I quickley got PISTOL, REVOLUTION, APOCALYPSE, JILTED, TRAINWRECK, RUSH..........PRETTY MUCH EVERY COLOR! And gave the ones that didn't look good on me to my mom, friends, and sisters. When the 3 new shades came out I got aIl 3 at once and soon realized that "MY NAKED" is actually "RUSH!" Although that was a great color find it is small compared to how flaming fuschia lips or the dark beauty of some shades and some w shimmer, some totally full coverage that brought 100's of compliments! Guys really love your noticeable lips and with UD, YOU NEVER HAVE TO WORRY about fading, bleeding, color change, not getting what you see or expect. They last for hours and hours, even without lipliner my GASH, TRAINWRECK, JILTED NEVER bled! THERE ARE NO CONS TO THIS LIPSTICK AND AM VERY BEYOND SAD TO SEE HOW SO MANY STAPLE SHADES OF MINE ARE NOW GONE, SINCE I HAD TURNED TO UD ONLY! UD DELIVERED WITH THE BEAUTIFUL COLOR, PLUMPIMG IMMEDIATELY, AND FEMINEME YET DANGEROUS LOOK TO THE OUTER TUBE DESIGN! Please do not discontinue these rare, perfect lipsticks again!
Pros never bleeds, stays for hours, used to have my every staple shade, several finishes to choose from, original colors were awesome, original selection was wide and wonderful
Yes, I recommend this product.

I hv already gone thrue three tubes of Drizzle and about to start another. I also hv Stung, but since I apply this at night, I want the clearest of thr colors. Speaking of using at night, I needed a discontinued item and was on the lookout for somethingg that would last until the morning. Well, this doesn't....BUT, after reading all of the ingrediants my mind was blown by how natural of a product this is! I love the silky feel and how it glides SO COMFORTABLY on, but the best part is that I can actually feel my lips drinkingthis stuff up, instead of a yukky feealinf layered over my lips. I do hv to apply VERY often but I dont mind because it just feels so great! One day I realized you can use this as a healing agent on cracked skin (cuticles, elbows....a little really goes a long way!) I used this consistently for at least a month, my tube was almost gone, and I definitely saw an improvement in my lips. They appeared to hv less lines, were plumped up and a bit moe defined around the edges. I wasnt the only one to notice this, first my boyfriend commented that my lips looked awwesome (w just Drizzle) then my mom and her co-worker commented on my "nice" lips, I was wearing lipstick at the Time but I trulu feel using this just took the look to the next level. I hv no problems w the smell, I personally feel the honey scent is the best, most recent scent in a gloss that UD has put out. Try it, I really dont think youll be sorry:)
Pros sinks right into lips, hydrating healing, very natural ingrediants
Cons must apply often since it absorbs to treat
Yes, I recommend this product.

Have these been discontinued?

These are my favorite lip gloss ever? Have they been discontinued? :(

Are they still sold at Sephora?
I 100% agree with you!! Lip Love was really 1 of the best items from UD in the past few years and they, as always with the best items it seems, have decided to discontinue it! For now, only 1 shade is available at a great sale price but after that, no more!! VERY UNFORTUNATE decision in my opinion, UD! Maybe they will bring it back repackaged or "improved" although NOTHING needed improving as this product is actually PERFECT.

How do I sharpen my glide on eyeliner?

I recommend UD's sharpener and it is set at a great price point, too! I have found the best sharpeners seem to have been made in Germany, for some reason. (I believe that is marked on UD's sharpener but not sure.) I use UD's sharpener but not always. Unfortunately my UD sharpeners work GREAT to sharpen but always (and I have 3) open up and make a big mess if I try traveling with them. (I have the older "Grindhouse" design, though.)

are all the formulas the same for these pencils, I get no irritation with zero, for years of wearing but if I switch to perversion or a blue, its bad

my eyes immediately itch and feel foggy, sleepy.
Never had this problem with the color zero.
Considering some shades have shimmer or even micro-glitter, not to mention that it takes different ingredients to produce different pigments, I'd say the short answer to your question is, "No, they do not all have the same formula." I know that Perversion tends to make my eyes a bit watery sometimes but that is because, compared to Zero, it is just a longer wearing product and irritation tends to occur more, at least for me, in longer wearing products. If I were you, I'd look over the list of ingredients in items you CAN wear without irritation and try to only choose colors with those ingredients/formulas. As for the colors that DO IRRITATE, avoid ANYthing you see in the formulas of those that are not in the formulas of products that do not irritate. If you try to stick as close to the non-irritating formula, then slowly branch out adding ONLY ONE NEW INGREDIENT AT A TIME, you will be able to better pinpoint what could potentially cause you trouble in ALL eye-makeups and always remember to use, store, and apply, etc. in a hygenic manner. If you are applying to your water-line, you may want to try only applying to your outer lids and see if you still have troubles. Perhaps you can still wear colors you love, but just not on the waterline. Goodluck!
