Almost everything about Urban Decay's Pocket Rocket in "Kirk" is perfect. The creamy sheer nude color is the best I've found to date. The package is cute and slim (great to keep in your pocket) and the gloss left my lips moisturized even after I removed my makeup. I loved it so much much I asked my fiance to buy me 2 more soon. So what's the problem? Keep reading to find out.
It STANK! As soon as I walked out of Sephora I put on this gloss on and was hit with a scent that smelled like I had just opened a bottle of medicine. It didn't smell like expired lip gloss—this was something else... I couldn't put my finger on it. My mother does not mess with any type of makeup and had just spent 30 minutes (a lifetime to her) in Sephora with me. I immediately put the wand in her face and said "smell this... what this smell like??!!!" She looked at me lost for words and with a horrible funky look on her face and said "I don't know." I flipped the box out to read the packing. What Urban Decay is describing as "sweet crème brûlée flavor" is way off. Don't get it confused...just because I'm from the "hood" doesn't mean I'm not familiar with crème brûlée.... I know it doesn't smell or taste like this. This gloss smells like vanilla, peanuts and a bottle of vitamins (gross, I know).
I'm letting you lovely dolls vote on rather I should return Urban Decay Pocket Rocket in "Kirk" and get my $19 back OR rock the gloss and simply deal with the scent. If you have a dupe for this shade leave comments so I can check it out. Help me out dolls!
