Friday Flashback: Roller Girl Madness

When I first saw this, I just HAD to have it!  Yes, it had totally cool colors and came with a bonus lip gloss and eyeliner, but do you see the groovy roller girl chick with the incredible Afro plastered all over the palette?  That's what sold me on it.  I totally fell and fell hard for Urban Decay's super awesome Roller Girl palette.

Roller Girl was a limited edition mini-palette that Urban Decay released a couple of years ago.  It consisted of four different eyeshadows, a mini Lip Junkie in Crush and included one mini 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner in Whiskey.

Whiskey is a dark, chocolate brown and is part of UD's permanent lineup of eye pencils.  Like all of their 24/7 Glide-On liners, it is creamy, well pigmented and lasts all day on me.

Crush Lip Junkie is a creamy, hot pink lip gloss.  Its non-sticky, semi-sheer formula has a pleasant minty fresh smell as well as taste. It is nicely pigmented and leaves ample color on the lips in one application.

Roller Girl boasts a pretty hip list of shadows: Woodstock, Verve, Suspect and Darkhorse.  Like all of UD's shadows, they are super plush, potently pigmented and so easy to work with.  These shades are all glitter-free so fallout has not been an issue.  At the time, Verve was a color that was unique to the quad.  However, it has since become a part of Urban Decay's regular lineup with the introduction of its newly formulated single eyeshadows. 

If you weren't able to snag a Roller Girl palette when it was first released, you can totally get all the colors and the liner and the lip gloss that it included now with no problem.  In fact, if you're a UD fan, you probably already have a deconstructed version of this in your stash.  So in that regard, you didn't actually miss out on the contents.  But the packaging is a whole 'nother thang.  I mean, did you lay your peepers on the palette's design and the gorgeous chick adorning it with the funkdafied coif, knitted legwarmers and old school roller skates?  I mean, how cool is that?  It's totally cool, man!

And if you totally feel the palette's vibe and are hip to the jive then slip me some skin, man, so I know you dig.  Can you dig it?  Right on, man.  I knew that you could.
