Product Review: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Like many, my daily makeup routine includes mascara as a finishing touch. I received the Perversion Mascara from Urban Decay as a Sephora Deluxe sample.

The Perversion Mascara retails for $27 CAD for the full size and $16 CAD for the travel size.  Personally, I like to try a travel size product without being fully committed to buying the full-size. On too many occasions, I have bought makeup products that I haven’t loved.

At first, I really didn’t like this product. It was very clumpy when coming off the applicator. However, it wasn’t until I read a bit further on this product that it is meant to be a “one swipe” formula. My advice would be to use a lash comb when working with this product as its easy to get spider legs.

The applicator on this is amazing, it coats every lash and is great for building volume and lengthening. It worked well in the outer crease area and you could get close to your water line.

My biggest pet peeve with this particular product is the amount of time it takes for your lashes to fully dry. Too many times have I ended up with black dots on my lids and lower lash line. I have never had the black dot on my lower lash line from any other mascara in my life and I don’t even put mascara there!

Final Thoughts?

Overall I’m still on the fence if I would actually purchase the full-size version. I enjoy the lengthening and volumizing factors with this formula. However, for $27 CAD, the price is steep for a mascara when there are many similar products for cheaper.

I would be opened to purchasing the travel size for travel and to have in my makeup bag in case I’m in a pinch.

    this is my favorite mascara. i’ve tried several even though i was never very picky about it. when i got a trial of this with the UD 24/7 eyeliner i was hooked and i’m so glad my husband got me the full size for xmas. even better the full size came with the felt tip Perversion liquid liner. i love both though i’m still working on the winged thing. i swear liquid liner sense fear!

      I’m glad you like this product. Part of my battle with this is I have long lashes so clumping is sometimes as issue.

      Thank you for the eyeliner recommendation I will have to try that out!
