I can’t put this mascara down!

March 9, 2020

To know me is to know that I live for a good mascara! It’s one of the items that I splurge on when shopping for makeup. About six months ago, I was gifted some products from Urban Decay after attending one of their events in Charleston. It had some fun products in it like a sleek liquid liner + the OG eyeshadow primer! It also had a tube of mascara in it in both the waterproof version and the regular one. I had no intention of using it until one of my favorite mascaras just wasn’t working the same on me anymore. To my surprise, it has become one of my go-to mascaras. It gives me volume and length! I used to apply three different mascaras to achieve the look that I now get with the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. Before using this mascara, I was either using the Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara, Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet, Chanel Le Volume de Chanel, or the Julep Length Matters mascara. 


I stopped using Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara after my fifth or sixth tube of it. It just wasn’t working the same for me anymore. I started getting more length then I was volume, and I like a mix of both. The Julep mascara started to thin my lashes out over time, so that had to go ASAP! I still reach for both the Marc Jacobs + Chanel mascaras from time to time, but the Perversion mascara has been going strong for over six months now! 

Perversion gives me the total package every time. I can achieve length + volume with this mascara. It doesn’t flake, and I don’t have to scrub super hard to get it off at the end of the day! A 10/10 in my book 🙂 I’ve linked all mascaras discussed if you’re interested in trying one out for yourself.
