Mascara Monday: Urban Decay Lush Lash mascara

| March 5, 2012 | 95 Comments

Huge news, y’all! This mascara review makes the 150th mascara review added to the Clumps of Mascara Mascara Bin. It’s hard to believe that I’ve tested over 150 mascaras AND wrote reviews for them. Is there a Guinness World Records section for something like this? Seriously. In honor of the 150th mascara review, I’ll be giving away UD’s Lush Lash. Aaaaand, it’s an International-friendly giveaway! Details after review!

Price: $20 at Sephora stores and Sephora.com
Packaging (brush wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What It Claims: “A thickening and lengthening mascara formulated to help lashes actually grow longer. ” (source)

The Truth: The wand is a dream!

What I Loved About It: This mascara lengthens nicely.

What I Didn’t Like: You probably won’t get the complete benefits of this mascara unless you use it in conjunction with Urban Decay’s Lush Lash System (Growth Accelerating Serum and Conditioning Mask). And that goes for $42.

Overall: Here’s the dealio, because I can’t spend weeks reviewing a mascara, I won’t be able to say much about this mascara’s ability to make the lashes healthier over time. What I will do is rap on the awesomeness that is the wand, the formula and whether or not the mascara’s overall performance is up to par.

Let’s take a look see at the wand.


Nice, uh? This is the perfect wand for maneuvering through wonky lashes. The bristles are smaller than I’d like but at least they are sturdy.

Formula-wise, I think this one’s formula is nice. It plops itself on the wand easily and distributing it on the lashes is easy. It flaked a bit on me throughout the days I wore it but this can be alleviated but applying a coat of your favorite mascara primer before applying the mascara.

This baby promises to thicken and lengthen and I think it does a darn good job. Like I think it does better lengthening than thickening, I love that I can apply 2-3 coats without it clumping up on me. I didn’t get insanely longer lashes with Lush Lash, but I find it be the perfect everyday mascara. Aaaand, if I weren’t too busy reviewing so many other mascaras, I would definitely use this for days and weeks at a time to see if helped lead me to healthier lashes. It’s been such a long time since I’ve reviewed an Urban Decay mascara and it’s a plum shame because Urban Decay is one of my favorite brands.

Bare Lashes


Lashes after 3 coats



Do I recommend it?: Sure do. Especially if you need a good separating mascara.

Have you tried this mascara yet? What do you think?

    My favorite Urban Decay product is the Primer Potion for eye shadows. I love it! No other eye primer comes close to the UDPP!

  43. Jessica says:

    I loved Urban Decay’s oldschool nail polishes. I was given a bottle of Toxin by someone once – I’ve since used it up because I was young and didn’t know it was rare – and I miss it dearly. I dream that they’ll bring it back one day!

  44. Tashina says:

    Somehow, I’ve never used an Urban Decay product aside from the UDPP! I think this needs to change. :)

  48. Kaylie says:

    My favorite Urban Decay product is their Primer Potion! :D

  49. AnnaMay says:

    I LOVE the Urban Decay Naked palette. I mean, don’t get me wrong, their liners are wonderful, and I like their tinted moisturizers, but their naked palettes are just GENIUS! I use mine everyday for eyes, brows, and highlighting/contouring for my face. It’s such a wonderful multi-use product, and that’s why it’s my favorite Urban Decay product.

    Course, then there is their awesome sauce primer potion. Eeek! Looks like I might have to have TWO faves. ;) <3

    I favorite Urban Decay product(s) are the 24/7 eyeliner pencils. Zero is the only black eyeliner pencil I currently use. I just recently bought the latest Book of Shadows and can’t wait to try the liquid liner in Perversion (may become my new favorite). My second favorite is the 1st Naked palette.

  59. cristina says:

    My fave is the ammo palette bc it was my introduction to UD and I have used the crapzilla out of it! I also love my Naked palette… I can literally take it on a trip n do several different looks with the really fun neutrals.

  62. Angela says:

    I like the DeSlick primer.
