Urban Decay Perversion
Mascara & 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil
Review


Hi Divas

I hardly show case any Urban Decay products on my blog therefore I am so excited for this review. I bought the Perversion mascara and 24/7 Glide on Pencil at Sephora because it was sold as a duo. Again, I was standing in a queue and couldn't resist throwing this combo in my basket. I purchased these last year but am only using it now. I have seen many big Youtubers using the mascara in tutorials and raving about it. I know from reviews and experience that higher end mascaras and eye liners are usually not as great as drugstore products. Higher end mascaras tend to get clumpy and dry out easier. Higher end eye liners tend to have a shorter life span too as they break easily and are not that durable. I mostly buy my mascaras and eye pencils at Clicks from affordable brands like Essence, Maybelline and Rimmel. How do you feel about the difference between higher end and drugstore mascaras and eye liners. Do you notice a difference or is it all in my head? LOL! On to the review. ;-)


Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
This mascara is described as a lengthening and volumizing product. They promise ''Bigger, Blacker and Badder'' lashes in one sweep. That tag line totally sounds like an action hero in a movie, hehehe. The mascara is packaged in a gunmetal colour wand with the iconic urban decay purple brand name on it. The product is quite big compared to other mascaras I have used. The tube is thicker but not heavy as it is made out of plastic. The actual wand is large in size too compared to most mascaras. There are many bristles layered in a zigzag pattern to coat and reach every eye lash. I have super big eyes so the size of the wand is not a problem for me. I think if you have particuarly small eyes, you might find it hard to control the wand without smudging product on your face.

The formula is made up of Hairdensyl and Honey extract to stimulate hair growth and nourish the lashes.The texture of the mascara is creamy. The product glides really well onto the lashes without clumping. There is a definite sign of lift and volume in my eye lashes with just one coat. You can layer this mascara too and it won't smudge or cluster the lashes. The bristles separate the lashes well giving that false lash look. I do not wear false lashes at all so this mascara is perfect for me to create that effect.  I love how this mascara makes my lashes look and feel. The formula is not heavy or sticky on my eyes. It does not dry out my lashes or cause irritation and flaking. My eyelashes look beautiful and I love the glamorous effect it gives when you layer it. The colour is a true black and looks flattering on the eyes. I love this mascara and recommend it if you are looking for a dramatic glam look.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Perversion
I had no idea that there are so many shades available in the 24/7 collection. When I looked on the Sephora website, I counted 35 pencils all in an array of colours. I think it is really great there are so many varieties to choose from. I have the true black shade in Pervasion. I am so super impressed with the colour of this liner. It is one of the truest black shades I have ever seen. It's a deep intense black that reminds me of Kohl and charcoal liners which women in ancient Egypt and India would use to adorn their eyes. This is a super creamy eye pencil that glides on like butter. I have never used such a soft and creamy eye pencil before. The liner applies smoothly on the eyes. The formula is quite soft therefore pressing too hard can cause smudges. You need a controlled hand if you want to achieve a perfect winged liner. Since the product is so creamy when you apply too much pressure it is difficult to control the application of the liner. I recommend using a light hand when drawing a wing.

So how do these pencils perform throughout the day? It lasts pretty well. There are a few smudges under my eyes but nothing too major to complain about. With a setting spray the liner lasts long with minimal smudging. You will need an eye makeup remover to thoroughly cleanse any traces of the product on the eyes, as a foam cleanser is not enough to remove all the product. When it comes to packaging the pencils are made from soft plastic and paper. You will need a good sharpener for the pencils as it is not a twist up liner. I would have preferred if the liners were in a twist up casing as the texture of the pencils are very creamy. This makes it difficult to sharpen because you feel you are sharpening some of the product away. Also, beware of not sharpening to much or the tip may break off.

*****
I adore the mascara and would definitely purchase it again. It lasts all day and is easy to remove with a foam cleanser. The 24/7 Glide on Liner performed well but I probably would not repurchase it. I found the texture a little too creamy for me. I personally prefer a slightly stiffer eye liner when it comes to texture. If you like creamy liners then definitely purchase this one. You will love it. Have you tried any of these products? Let me know below!


Hope this review was helpful. Thank you so much for reading.
Divalicious Kisses.

Your eyes look gorgeous Desle. Love the way you did your winged liner. The mascara is on my wish list. I have seen many YouTubers love it too. Loved this review. 💖

Perversion is definitely my mascara of choice Desle! When I tested different ones awhile back it was the winner in my book. I love it. I feel the same way you do about the eyeliner. It's good, but not great. Overall, I like DRY mascaras. I tried a Chanel one and it seemed super dry but gave me GREAT LASHES.

I really want the eye liner, but couldn't find it anywhere. I've tried the shades Zero and Whiskey and really like the formula.
