Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
If there's one thing that gets me excited in the beauty world, it's new mascara releases.  Urban Decay have recently released their Perversion mascara which promises bigger, blacker, badder lashes. The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara is a full sized 12ml mascara which comes with a deluxe 4.5ml sample of their Subversion Lash Primer.  Normally this would set you back £17 but this time I was lucky enough to catch it on Cohorted for around £8.  Here's what you should expect.

Urban Decay Subversion and Perversion Mascara
Starting with Subversion, this is a generous sized mascara primer which helps to separate and lengthen the lashes.  Now compared to any other mascara primer I've tried, I see no difference in texture or the way it applies.  It's basically your typical mascara primer.  However I do find it does make a difference when used with Perversion as it sort of conditions and prepares the lashes with added length.  You can purchase this full sized on it's own but I believe it's the perfect size to use with Perversion.  I'd probably be more likely to repurchase if it came separately in this size.

Moving onto Perversion, I expected the brush to look a little more exciting for the original price.  The formula of Perversion is quite creamy which means it doesn't over clump the lashes but I find it's main selling point is length.  Used without Subversion is still possible but I prefer the look of them together.  I also find the lashes are much more separated and less prone to flaking when used with Subversion.

Now how about the staying power? Well I'm glad to report that the mascaras used together lasted all day without any sign of smudging or flaking.  It even lasted through crying with laughter at some funny dog videos on YouTube which was particularly impressive, don't judge!

So overall, is it a good mascara? I would say yes but I'm not so sure I'm convinced it's worth £17 if I'm completely honest.  I think there are just as good mascaras out there for half the price.  I think if you can find it for a slightly cheaper price, you won't be disappointed.

EDIT: Cohorted.co.uk have confirmed it will be back on the website next week (Monday 13th), keep an eye out!
