So recently I bought the Urban Decay Perversion mascara as I have heard amazing reviews about it. Also, with weekly pay and student discounts, there is always the temptation to add something to my collection, as you can never have enough makeup (am I right?). So here’s my review!
I bought the travel size version because this mascara was a step – in for my regular mascara, which I ran out of (Maybelline Falsies), and to also trial something different. The travel size is also so much cheaper and therefore does not feel like a commitment – £8 compared to £17.70 for the full size.
When I received the product, I was pleasantly surprised. There was so much useful information about application and a beautiful design on the box, which for me, I love as it shows how they have gone the extra mile to produce the perfect product. The bottle looks very thin and like there’s not much product in there, but I can assure you, a little does go a long way. Touch ups on the go is also so much easier with a bottle this size (not that you need to) ! The bottle itself looks quite metallic / holographic which I absolutely love *insert heart eyes here*.
With the product itself, it seems like Urban Decay have tried to fulfil many things in the Perversion mascara, but I think they have checked every box. What works the most is the buildable coverage this mascara offers as everyone likes a different amount of volume on their lashes. It is an easy transition from day to night too – just add another coat and you’re ready to go! The thick wand makes it easier to coat all your lashes in one strike, saving time for you but not compromising on the outcome.
Although Urban Decay say to not wiggle, that is my secret to getting that extra bit of volume to the base of my lashes, and making sure that there are no clumps, even though there are hardly any. As for longevity, it lasts all day, and most days I will have mascara on for up to 14 hours. I have had this product for a month and a half now, and I have not had to add another coat during the day as this mascara does not flake away; looking just as good as in the morning.
My only problem, which is a genuine pain, is that due to the length of my lashes once the mascara is applied, it does seem to smudge on my eyelids and under my eyes. I think it is because the mascara takes a little longer to dry than most mascaras, but once it is wiped away, everything is good.
Overall, this is the wonder product I have been looking for! It is almost perfect (minus the smudging) and I would rate it above any other mascara I have used – including Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. If you are not sure about whether you should buy this or not, consider getting the travel size, it is cheap and its only 4ml, so if you don’t like it, I guess it won’t hurt your pocket. A definite favourite for me.
