Urban Decay Spring 2012 Collection

I knew that a let down was coming for the spring makeup season and I believe that it is here.  The new collection from Urban Decay is very small and actually doesn't contain any new products.  The company released new shades of some of their best selling products, which is good in that I know that whatever I like is tried and tested and worth a purchase but I know that I am not going to find my next Holy Grail product in this group.  I also dislike how little organization this new collection has, there is no theme to the collection and almost no rhyme or reason as to what products and shades were chosen for it.  I really hate when a collection consists of random products and shades that are grouped together and called a collection.  Is it all that difficult to come up with a group of products with a theme and then provide a name for the whole collection?

This collection consists of a few new lip shades, a new concealer, and a few new shades of their famed 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.  I was kind of wondering if Naked 2 was going to be part of this since it slowly coming back into stock but I guess that it was released too early to be part of this collection.  I bet it will be part of the collection on the Sephora website since they have finally begun to stock it in their stores and on their website.  This collection includes the release of Perversion in the 24/7 Glide On Liner, a shade that has previously been available in their best selling eye shadow formula.

Here are the new items from Urban Decay...

24/7 Concealer - Hide dark circles and blemishes with our creamy formula that dries matte and stays put.  Because it's a pencil, it's easy to apply with precision.  A concealer in pencil form equals precise application, and less mess - no brush, no dipping your finger into a pot, or squeezing a dollop onto a sponge.  Dot on tiny blemishes, or shade in large problem areas (like redness around the nose and chin).  The creamy formula blends easily, then dries down to a smudge-free matte finish.
- CIA - light ivory
- DEA - ivory beige
- FBI - neutral beige
- NSA - deep beige
- ATF - creamy brown
- DOD - reddish brown
- KGB - orangish dark brown
- MI6 - deepest brown

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Creamy, forever lasting, award winning, and waterproof, 24/7 Pencils delight you with lush tropical hues, deep metallics, and unusally vibrant neutrals.  The best eye pencil ever, ever, ever!  Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too.  Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that will not budge.  Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect with the wide selection of lush tropical hues, deep metallics, and unusually vibrant neutrals.  Incredible with Urban Decay Eye Shadows.  Created with 50% moisturizing ingredients suspended in a sophisticated waterproof formula, 24/7 Eye Pencils offer long-lasting color and a dreamy, creamy feel when applied.  With Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, and Cottonseed Oil.
- Perversion - blackest-black matte
- Woodstock - sparkly hot pink with silver micro-glitter
- Demolition - deep brown with matte finish

Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss - Undress our men with the flick of your wrist.  Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss combines two of our favorite things: naked dudes and gorgeous lip color.  Undress our men with the flick of your wrist!  Inside the cap of our custom tube is a photo of a yummy man.  Tilt the tube back and forth to strip them to their undies (We've even included front and rear photos). Whether you swoon for a future senator or a tree hugger, one of our men is sure to please you.  Our guys make awesome gifts for bachelorette parties, baby showers, or bdays.
- Rashad - medium cool pink (sheer)
- Dustin - nude with iridescent fleck

Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color - Sephora only.  Urban Decay's creamiest, most sumptuously pigmented lip pencil.  This formula delivers all the opaque, saturated, high impact color of your favorite lipstick and an arresting  high gloss finish in one chubby pencil.  And with a dynamic bright to deep shade range in creamy and sparkly textures, the runway ready possibilites are endless.  Even the glittery hues in this collection of high gloss lip pencils feel smooth on your lips (and leave not a trace of sparkle grit).  This conveniently portable pencil's high gloss shine can be blotted for a more stain-like effect, but no matter how you wear it, the color lasts.  Free of mineral oil and paraffin, this contains plant-derived ingredients that nourish lips.  Because the barrels and boxes are color-matched to each shade, locating the color you want it easy, even in the deep dark depths of an oversize tote.
- Apocalyse - deep plum
- Lovechild - pale pink

This collection is a total letdown, this might be the first Urban Decay collection that I want nothing from.  I wouldn't mind having the pink shade of the new Pocket Rocket gloss line but I can live without it, it's not a must have.  I'm not interested in any of the other lip products and I can skip the eye liners too.  I have the Zero shade already and when I am done with this pencil, I would consider checking Perversion out but I don't really need to add yet another black eye liner to my collection at the moment.  I don't care for the concealer pencil, I use full coverage creams and liquids, I need coverage for larger areas then just a blemish or two.  I know that this one states that it can be used on larger areas but its doesn't look as though it will work well and it will take much longer with this type of formula.

Hope summer collection is much better than this one...
