About Urban Decay
Founded in 1996 by Sandy Lerner and Patricia Holmes, Urban Decay started out as a rogue idea of its founders. Tied up with the vision of Wende Zomnir, who literally made the brand come into being, Urban Decay has grown to become one of the most sought-after global cosmetics brand. Urban Decay;s growth became even more unstoppable as the brand is now owned by L’Oreal. Urban Decay created a revolution in cosmetics, renewing general public interest in makeup altogether. Urban Decay products created buzz just by sporting their labels, with names such as Rust, Roach, Oil Slick, and Acid Rain.
Headquartered in Newport Beach, California, and with a distribution center in Hialeah, Florida, Urban Decay is well-known for coming out with bold, fantastic colors and cosmetics which, before Urban Decay invented them, was widely thought of to be eccentric, almost bizarre and impossible to put on one’s face. Yet, Urban Decay offers the popular Naked lines which is completely the opposite of the bold colors they were first known for. Urban Decay is responsible for creating the Eyeshadow Primer Potion and Makeup Setting Sprays which help give makeup an incredible glide and staying power on skin.
What is the Urban Decay Lip Junkie?
True to Urban Decay’s vision of bold, vivid, and experimental cosmetics, the Urban Decay Lip Junkie is not your ordinary lip gloss, neither are its shades anywhere near its competitors. Whatever shade of color you see on the tube, that’s the shade you get on your lips too, unlike other shiny lip glosses that almost just gives you the shine, and very little color.
The Urban Decay Lip Junkie comes in 14 juicy shades. Any species of beauty or urban junkie will certainly find one that fits their taste and style. Those who don’t like shimmer on their lips will certainly approve that there are varieties that don’t leave lips shiny and glittery.
Colors range from nude and almost neutral to pinkish, reddish, and purplish. Those who are gifted with naturally adorable lips might just want an Urban Decay Lip Junkie product to keep their lips moisturized. In which case, the Midnight Cowboy or Naked shades which are almost nude to neutral tints will flatter your lips even more. If more color is desired, whether to hide lip imperfections or to simply match your look, try Crush for a hot pink, kissable lips finish. If you dare, go for red lips with Red Light.
Ingredients in Urban Decay Lip Junkie
Urban Decay Lip Junkie is infused with Maxi Lip. What Maxi Lip does is that it enhances collagen production on your lips which plumps the lips with regular, continued use for at least a month, making lips appear fuller and leaving them ultra-hydrated. Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Mineral Oil, and Peppermint Oil are some of the natural ingredients found in this product which, together, combine forces to keep your lips moisturized.

Lip Gloss junkies keep raving about Urban Decay Lip Junkie’s packaging—sleek, creative, hygienic, and easy to control. Users also can’t seem to have too much of the minty taste the product leaves on their lips, and the fresh feeling that comes with it.
How to apply?
The packaging is very much sophisticated and handy, compared to those of its competitors. Each product comes in an easy to squeeze tube that has a tiny hole. A gentle squeeze dispenses just the right amount of product on your lips, giving you ultimate control for easier application and contouring. In general, lip products that come in squeezable tubes are far more hygienic than when lip brushes are used for application.
Use on its own or apply over lipstick.
