Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Review

Hey hey!

The Canadian Beauty Bloggers‘ Featured Brand this month is Urban Decay so I figured it was the perfect time to finally try my Urban Decay Perversion Mascara that I received in my Ipsy Glam Bag of August 2014.

Urban Decay says that you will Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. 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.

They also say that The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish.

To me it looks like a typical mascara brush with bristles.

The formula is more on the wet side and did not clump on my lashes – I HATE clumps! Here’s what only one coat did for me… me likes!

Hello lashes!

My big issue with mascaras is that most of them either give me raccoon eyes or flake on me. How did this one do? Let’s take a look…

Oh hello there Mrs Raccoon. :-(
*shakes fist at oily eyes*

I don’t usually put mascara on my lower lashes, and I also find that it tends to contribute to the raccooning so I tried it again with just one coat on my upper lashes to give it a fair chance. And nope, no go. I still got some raccooning going on in about the same amount of time (it starts to creep down after 1-ish hour of wear). And, bad idea to test this on a work day – I kept having to wipe my eyes.

As far as removal goes, this mascara is not waterproof so regular eye makeup remover does the trick.

So, did I get bigger, blacker, badder lashes? Yes I did! Did the brush offer a clean, clump-free finish? Yes it did! But, there is a but, and it’s a big one too, a big raccoon butt! 😛

This mascara gave me raccoon eyes :-( and I’m really disappointed about that because the formula (for the black and bold lashes) and the brush (for a clump-free finish) were amazing!

Have you tried this mascara?

  • I had the same problem with this mascara. I just picked up Sephoras lash stash so I am hoping to find a good one in there.

  • I LOVED this mascara. I also got it in my Ipsy bag ages and ran through the whole tester. I recently got another deluxe sample with my Sephora points although I haven’t opened it yet! That’s too bad that it racooned on you. I get that a lot with mascaras (although I sometimes wonder if it’s my liner) and I don’t even think it’s possible for me to have it NOT happen.
