Urban Decay is a very bloggy brand. Everyone loves the Naked palettes and there’s probably about 203959205929592 reviews of the Naked 3 on the interwebs. Including this blog here.

I’ve only tried their eye shadows and never any other makeup products. I do have my eye on their foundation. Help. This means I’m probably going to buy it.

Another thing I had my eye on was this perversion mascara, with a lash primer known as subversion – how cute.

Well, I don’t know if cute and perversion go well in the same sentence but I’m doing it anyway. Try and stop me. Come at me.

The primer is a white coating that reminds of that Bourjois double ended mascara I had when I was 15. I’ve not really seen or heard much about eye lash primers since then. I know I’m not makeup expert, I don’t keep up with the latest products but I do keep up with a lot of blogs – none of which talk of this mascara or primer.

It was only released this summer, which is maybe why it doesn’t have as many fan girls as Benefit’s They’re Real mascara – which I think is probably one of the most mediocre mascaras I’ve ever tried and I still get the urge to bang my head against my desk when I remember I spent £18 of my own money on that rubbish.

Anyway, back to the primer. It’s basically like foreplay for lashes. It coats your lashes and gives the mascara something to hold onto to allow it to glide on easier, giving your lashes volume and making them seem longer.

The mascara itself is a dark dark black. It claims to never get clumpy. It applies well and really helps give my thin, yet long lashes, extra volume.

The brush pulls through the lashes easily and seems to get most of them, without having to angle your hand in an inhuman manner to coat each one.

This is now my new favourite mascara! Finally one that I am happy with. It’s a pity it’s so expensive though!

Have you ever tried this mascara? What do you think of it?

  1. Never tried their mascaras, but I like their colour eyeshadows as their one of the few brands that the colours actually show up on my skin tone and stay all day too. This looks really lovely on you, it is expensive stuff, but sometimes worth it for the ones that work the best. xx

  2. I love the mention of the Bourjois double ended mascara. I remember the first time I coated my lashes in white with that product.

    This one looks really good on you so I am going to have a look at it next time I am near a counter.

  3. Hi Corinne, the mascara looks totally amazing on you. No matter what I try my lashes will never look great. They are not long enough. To tell you the truth everything I tried from Benefit sucked so far. I thought it was just me but looks like I’m not the only one. Have a happy Friday sweetie. I’m lactose intolerant and try to stay away from milk.


  4. Haha love the names of these products 😀 It’s so hard to find a good mascara, I’m glad this one worked for you.

  6. This combo sounds amazing and your lashes do look so full and lush! I find that applying primer makes a big difference even if I use drugstore mascara.

  7. Even though the mascara is a little expensive it is worth the price. It looks great on you 🙂

    P.S. I just followed your blog via Bloglovin. Hope you follow mine, too 🙂

  8. I remembered the money I wasted on Benefit They’re Real mascara which I absolutely hated with a passion and that’s why I treasure the sample that I got so much because shockingly it’s amazing! I haven’t tried this mascara from UD but I absolutely Cannonball which is another mascara from them. Can you let me know if this holds the curl? That is the most important factor for me in regards to mascara.
