I got this as a GWP in one of my book of shadows. I recently finished the sample off and from what I've seen I really like the shape, and texture of the wand. I still have two new tubes of mascara, but once I'm in the market for another mascara I might try this one or one of the other Urban Decay mascaras since they are all CRUELTY FREE, which is very important to me now when I purchase beauty products.
Wow. This is the only mascara I have used that lasts all day (and night - I've fallen asleep with it on, though I try not to make that a habit) without flaking or fading or smudging, and makes my lashes look great! The formula curls my lashes so I don't even have to curl them before applying, and it really opens up my eyes. GIves me volume and length and doesn't look clumpy, one or two coats is all you need. And the price is amazing for a mascara of this quality! I received this as a freebie in a large purchase straight from UD and I'm so glad, I never would have tried it on my own and it's now my HG! Not even waterproof mascaras I've tried have the staying power of this one. Will purchase over and over! Packing is pretty without being over the top.
Oh man, I LOVE this mascara. I LOVE the way it holds a curl and is super black. It gives volume and length. It lasts all day and doesn't flake or smudge. I received this as a deluxe sample and I want the full size when I am done.
I am very critical of high-end makeup in general and this surprised me. I think it is worth the $20. I only feel this way about 2 mascaras, this and the Bare Escentuals Lash Domination. It doesn't burn my eyes or come off too wet or dry. Love how it has shea butter in it and makes my lashes super soft. No stiffness or brittle feeling with this.
My lashes are naturally pretty thick so I usually look for something for curl and length. I have a hard time finding that but this fits the bill.
I felt like this mascara piles WAAAY too much product on your lashes to be of any use for curling. I have kind of naturally curved lashes, but I felt that the formula was so wet and clump-inducing that it weighed my lashes down instead. I was very disappointed, as I'm a big UD fan (their shadows, liners, and lip colors are FANTASTIC) but this mascara did not meet expectations at all.
I love Urban Decay's shadows and liners, so I was really excited to try out one of their mascaras. I have long lashes, but they are super straight, so I thought a mascara that focused on curling would be good for me. This is the first Urban Decay product I have been disappointed in.
What I hate most about it is the way it clumps and makes my lashes stick together after one coat. From day one I found it to be clumpy. Maybe this is due to the way the wand is curved? Whatever it is, it's terrible. Secondly, there is no curling effect on my lashes. I first tried using it without my eyelash curler and didn't notice any curling effect. Then I tried using it after curling my lashes, but it didn't seem any different than if I had just used the curler alone. Very disappointing. Finally, there is a lot of fall out after wearing it for only half an hour. Little black specks start to fall beneath my eye. I am constantly having to wipe it off.
This is the worst mascara I have ever used. Urban Decay, you can do better! I think I will either try something else, or go back to using Clinique.
This is my HG mascara!! I love this stuff! I am blessed with long lashes naturally and this mascara just makes them even more long and luscious. It is a little pricey but so worth it. I received a sample from sephora and from there I've been buying the full tube because it is just that great. The other reason I love this mascara so much is that it doesn't make you have raccoon eyes... It stays put all day/night and is even great for bottom lashes because it won't smudge underneath your lashes! Love this stuff! Would definitely recommend, if your not sure buy the sample tube which is sometimes available at sephora... It lasts a long time!
I love this stuff. I got this as a freebie from urbandecay.com and after the first use, I was hooked. The brush is curved which makes for easy application and the formula is lightweight.The color is dark enough to stand out against my dark skin, and I haven't had any issues with flaking. I plan to repurchase. I haven't benn this impressed by a mascara in a long time.
I was disappointed in this product. It seems super wet for a mascara. It's very difficult to get a "natural" look with this mascara. Idk, save your money.
This is my HG mascara. My lashes are acceptably long and dense, but they are stick straight. Not just straight across, they slant down. It is the most infuriating feature I inherited from my dad. I've tried just about every mascara out there (Diorshow, Covergirl Lash blast, Benefit Bad Gal, etc etc) and this is the ONLY mascara that allows my lashes to hold a curl with OR without a curler. I finally have lashes that look almost like really natural falsies.
It does flake a bit so I tend to brush off every few hours when I'm reapplying lipgloss anyways. But no clumping, just beautiful curled lashes.
I love this stuff, I got a travel sized with one of my UD palettes and I've been hooked since. The formula is really creamy and light so you can apply a couple coats without getting too clumpy, also it really does help keep your lashes curled all day. The brush fits perfectly on my lashes so I can do one swipe and get every lash coated. Also this stuff seems to last forever, I know your supposed to throw your mascara out every 3 months but I've had this stuff for 6 and it works as well as the day I got it. Definitely would buy again.
