Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara - Review

 

Hey Beauty Lovers.

Today I bring you a product I've being dying to share with you, Urban Decay's Lush Lash Mascara, it claims to have a serum infused and moisture rich formula which makes your lashes grow long and thick whenever worn, how handy is that?

I've always been a bit dubious about lash lotions and potions and concoctions which claim to give you spider leg eyelashes, but when I spotted this 2-in-1 mascara in the boxing day sales I had to give it a go. My thinking was if it turned out to be a let down, it might be a half decent mascara.

Packaging

Just look how gorgeous the packaging is, although I am a sucker for Urban Decay designs. It is quite simple for Urban Decay, but there's nothing worse than overwhelming packaging housing an underwhelming product. The tube narrows at the top so scrapes away excess mascara as you pull the wand out, leaving you with the right amount on the wand. Its a simple tube design, making it super easy to hold and obviously to apply.

Product

I've been using this mascara just under 3 weeks and I'm yet to wake up to fan like eyelashes. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a slow growth and one day BAM I cant open my eyes as my lashes are so long! I have noticed, or should I say, haven't noticed my lashes fall out when I take my makeup off, maybe its like Regaine for eyelashes?

The mascara its self is really good, although it does require a bit of patience as the formula is very thin, so needs building up in layers to achieve a long and thick look, for this I apply 3 coats.

I used to wear 2 mascaras for a day time look, I now wear only this one, and 3 for an evening look, I now wear just 2, but I do like to really lather on the mascara for a night out.

Wand
 
The wand is an hourglass shape, which gives you the lift of the traditional C shaped or curved wand, but coats each lash. It has short rubber bristles which are designed to get the very base of your lashes. Another benefit to the rubber bristles is you can easily scrape away an excess mascara if you think too much is on the wand, without damaging or dislodging the bristles. It has slight flexibility so has some give when your wiggling it up your lashes.
 
 

Price

I purchased this mascara for £13.50, during a 10% promotional Christmas offer, it usually costs £15 full priced, still not a bad price, especially when many high street brands, such as Bourjois and Rimmel London charge £9.99 for some of their mascaras! Its a high end bargain product.

I would recommend Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara too anyone who wants a mascara more than a mythical lash growth potion, but can we really be sure these eyelash serums actually work?

Let me know if you've used this mascara or any lash serums and awoke with dramatically long and luscious lashes.
