Quick Review: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara


If the name doesn’t draw you to it then your lashes after you’ve used it certainly will.  This is a quick review of Urban Decay’s mascara called Perversion.  I am a bit of a mascara addict and would try a new one every month if I could, but there are a few I do go back to (Lancome Hypnose and Hypnose Drama,YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils and Guerlain Cils D’Enfer Maxi Lash.) I was in House of Fraser recently and browsing Urban Decay when I spotted a travel size tube of Perversion for only £8 (the bigger tube is £17.50) so I thought it was a great way to try it and go big if I like it.  I think it’s so great when high end brands do this.  I’ve tried trials of Benefit Mascaras:  Roller Lash (ok), They’re Real (good) and BADgal (ok), Smashbox: Full Exposure (ok) and  Clinique: High Impact (not bad) and haven’t been absolutely crazy about them.  Sometimes you can get sample sizes with magazines or in gift sets, but they’re not always easy to get so I was thrilled to find this.  I tend to use at least 2 mascaras to get really thick, volumised lashes, but I don’t need to with Perversion and can put on a few layers (letting lashes dry for a few minutes in betwen layers) to get the desired look.  I don’t care if it’s just day time and I’m doing the school run and not exactly getting glammed up and going to a party…I want my lashes to look thick and luscious and my eyes to look wide awake (even if they’re far from it.) So this does the job perfectly.  It makes lashes really black and glossy and doesn’t flake or budge all day.  I’ve even had a few compliments since wearing it so that must be good.  I will definitely be buying a bigger tube in the future.  I really want to try Too Faced Better than Sex mascara next though.  Has anyone tried that?  What are your thoughts on Urban Decay’s Perversion?  What’s your favourite mascara?  As always, would love to hear your thoughts.
