Mascara Monday: Urban Decay Lush Lash mascara

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
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.

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

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

  • marta

    Naked palette

  • Thanks for such an awesome giveaway! I absolutely love your blog and swatches!

  • I’ve never tried Urban Decay products (can’t afford them!) so I don’t have a favorite yet. :(

  • Wow that wand looks amazing! Some of UD’s products are definitely a miss, but as long as it doesn’t have cheap-o silver micro glitter than I am usually pleased.

  • Celine

    My favourite Urban Decay product is their lid primer. It works so good, and really brings out the pigment of any shawdo.

  • I’ve never met an Urban Decay product I didn’t like, but I’ve never tried their mascara. I love, love, love the Naked and Naked 2 palettes! And the eyeshadow primer potion!

  • I have not purchased an urban decay product yet but the one I dream about and will one day buy is the trail size pack of 24/7 eyeliners in bright, maybe even the nude ones too if my wallet will allow : )

  • My favorites are definately the Edible Body Powder in Marshmellow because it’s just soooo cute and so much fun and the Primer Potion because it’s so easy to use and works really well :)

    Haven’t tried any of their products yet! But I’ve been dying to try the Naked Palette! :)

  • Katie

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

  • Jessica

    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!

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

  • Selena torrealba

    Awesome giveaway! I hope I win! :)

  • My favorite UD product is the 24/7 liners in bright colors! Such an easy way to make it look like I did my makeup on lazy days (which have been everyday lately!).

  • My favorite urban decay product is the first naked palette. I love the eye shadows and the the primer potion. <3

  • Kaylie

    My favorite Urban Decay product is their Primer Potion! 😀

  • AnnaMay

    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

  • Melany

    I love the Rollergirl palette!

  • I love the 24/7 black liner by Urban Decay!

  • Cosmolude

    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.

  • cristina

    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.

  • Katie

    I love the Urban Decay Naked palettes. I know people say you really only need one… But I honestly would cry if I couldn’t have both!

  • Angela

    I like the DeSlick primer.

  • Veronica

    while the Naked palette is definitely one of my favorite makeup items… id have to say my favorite Urban Decay product is the All Nighter setting spray!! perfect for those long wild nights of dancing, dont know what i would do without it!

  • I rediscovered my love for UD eyeshadows recently, how I missed them, and how stupid I was for turning away from them!

  • I can see how much it seperates your lashes…. but for some reason on me I HATE THIS STUFF!

  • Crystal

    My favorite Urban Decay product is their eye shadows!!!!

  • Supriya

    I love your mascara reviews!!

    • Supriya

      Sorry I forgot to answer the questions 😛 I love their primer potion!!!
