As George Costanza would say…“I’m back baby, I’m back!!” lol
How have you all been!? I went on a little hiatus while my desktop computer was getting repaired. (Its no fun doing posts from an iPhone, let me tell you!) So I just had some relaxing time with the family. My fiancee also happened to be on vaca so we took the kids to the beach and they loved it!
Anyway, I have a review of the new Urban Decay Perversion Mascara for you all today! (I received a deluxe sample as part of their launch giveaway.)
From the Urban Decay website:
“Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. Includes a deluxe sample of Subversion Lash Primer! So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.” “Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes.”
Lets start with the brush, its really soft and its my favorite kind of applicator…I was really happy with it! (Im not a big fan of stiff prickly silicone brushes, like the one on Benefit’s They’re Real.)
The color is nice…I don’t know how much I buy into the hype of “the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable”…I mean, yah its black, but it looks the same as all of my other black mascaras. 😉 The formula is soft and creamy and really separated and lengthened my lashes very well. Just one coat looks beautifully defined and natural…I was in love!! <3
So I was wearing it for a few hours, and just before going into work I checked my make-up in the car mirror and I saw:
I was so bummed!! Now, I will say it was really hot out, but I will also say this has actually never happened to me with any mascara before. 🙁 I have since tried it 2 more times and its defiantly worse on hot muggy days. I would recommend using a lash primer with this mascara to be on the safe side.
All in all, I really love the application and the lash result but I wasn’t too impressed with the wear time. Maybe it would be better as a waterproof formula? It retails for $22 and will be back in stock at Urban Decay on 7/13!
Have any of you tried this…what were your results? If not, are you interested in purchasing??
Thanks so much for reading, I’m SO happy to be back!! 😀
