A week ago a massive box landed on my doorstep. And yes, you may think this is the norm for a beauty blogger but this box was huge. And inside was a mascara. Okay, so not just a mascara. Urban Decay kindly sent over a darling black bag, some goodies and yeah, a mascara. Perversion mascara doesn’t get released until July 13th and I’m really not a fan of reviewing items that you lovely folx can’t get yet but…forgive me for this one.
I’m telling you now because I REALLY think you’ll want to save your pennies for this baby. Trust me on this.
Price: $22 from UrbanDecay.com
Packaging (brush wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What It Claims: Because it is top secret, I don’t have any official claims just yet but I will update this as soon as I find out.
The Truth: N/A
What I Loved About It: I really, really loved how dark this mascara is.
What I Didn’t Like: Like many mascaras that do great at volumizing, if you go overboard, you will endure spider lashes.
Overall: Way to go with this mascara, Urban Decay! I’m thinking this baby will be quite a winner. When you think of the brand UD, you may not always associate them with fantastic mascaras. Which is a shame because they really do have spectacular mascaras. Perversion puts them all to rest, though. I don’t even remember the names of their other mascaras. All I know is Perversion. Let’s talk about the wand first.
The wand is just okay, to me. I gave it high ratings because while there isn’t any thing spectacular about it, it doesn’t have any flaws in my book, either. UD keeps it simple with a wand that isn’t too narrow but is also wide enough with space in between the bristles to really comb through the lashes. The bristles are also stiff enough to get those bottom lashes.
Formula-wise, we’re working with perfection. It sits comfortably between thick and thin and applying it on the lashes is easy.
And then the application – a swift move through the lashes and after one coat, you are left with insanely pigmented lashes. Which is impressive after only one coat. After applying 2 coats, my lashes reallllly got out there and were lengthened and volumized. A third coat may possibly enter you into Spider Lash territory but with a mascara this good, you really don’t need a third coat.
Also, wear is fantastic and while it isn’t waterproof, I didn’t experience any smudging or flaking throughout the day. It really is an exceptional mascara and best fit for my girls who love dark and lush lashes. You’ll get a good amount of length and great volume but really I think the star quality of this mascara is just how dark your lashes will look. Which is a fantastic quality for a bangin’ eye look. Or you know, every day. If that’s how you roll.
Lashes after 2 coats
Do I recommend it?: Heck yeah, I do. It is such a great addition to UD’s already stellar Perversion lineup.
Basically you’ll want to snag this mascara. Even if you aren’t an avid mascara wearer. You’ll love this one. And $22 ain’t cheap but you’ve spent more on coffee in a week, right? Well, I haven’t but…yeah. Bookmark this page and on July 13th, order Perversion mascara. Oh and while you are at it, check out some of the other lovely Perversion items that UD has…
