Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Review

There is nothing I like more than applying mascara and watching as my eyelashes grow in length, fluttering like an Oscar winning movie star. Or at least I like to think they do, however when reality sets in and they just look lovely and long I am still just as pleased - whilst a little disappointed I am not a movie star. 

Recently I purchased the Urban Decay on the Run palette and I have to say I have been very impressed with the majority of the products inside. For the last few weeks I have been putting the Perversion mascara to the test. I was slightly apprehensive to use this mascara as I absolutely love my Benefit’s They’re Real and also L’Oreal’s Telescopic mascara. I always worried when first trying a mascara as they are always so wet and do not help with separating the lashes or building any thickness. 

However, on first try of this mascara I was very impressed, it lengthened and thickened my lashes. I was even more pleasantly surprised that upon second testing it did the same thing. The brush is large and extremely different to the L’Oreal or Benefit ones, which focus on creating length. Unfortunately, the set back for me for this mascara is that because the brush is so big it means I get a lot of the product on the tops of my lids, the mascara is designed to last all day and fixing this problem is not easy! With most mascaras I can take a cotton bud and remove once it is dry but with this one I have to use a make up wipe which results in me wiping away my eyeshade making me the application of the eye make up pointless. 

I love the look this mascara is able to achieve, I do not like the look my eyelids end up becoming. For me this has become a bittersweet relationship but ultimately I will not be purchasing the full sized product. So sad, but true. 

What is your favourite mascara? Have you tried this one, if so what were your thoughts?
