Review: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, Bigger, Blacker, Badder Lashes

My lashes can never get enough of mascara. At this point of time, whenever I want my lashes to get done, I want them to get done quick and effortless given that I have such limited time.  With this, I have tried Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and couldn’t get enough of it.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

‘Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Our formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy.

Perversion Mascara contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids—including marine glycogen, known to stimulate lash growth. Honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects.

The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish. It pulls through lashes smoothly and lays down a generous amount of product. No need to wiggle the wand or maneuver it at all different angles!

If you need to apply in public, you’ll look good holding Perversion. We emblazoned our gorgeous, highly metallized black tube with a big purple “Perversion” and our tagline: “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.”’

This type of brush are usually great for volumizing as they are able to coat every lashes with the product formula more evenly to build more body for each lashes.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara How To

To use this mascara isn’t difficult at all, just remember to wiggle it all the way throughout the application. I would always use the brush tip to reach out lashes at the corner of my eyes. I enjoyed layering using this mascara as it doesn’t clump my lashes at all and the volume is buildable from the layering.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Before & After

A before and after and yes, no lash curler was used at all. See the difference of my lashes after having the mascara on? They are so much more lifted.

Above all…

I love the fact that this mascara doesn’t clump my lashes after numbers of layering and once it dries, the mascara doesn’t harden my lashes at all. It did take sometime for me to apply the mascara when I wanted much more dramatic lashes but the results are worthy. My lashes were lifted so well that I didn’t even need to use lash curler at all. It didn’t smudge on me after more than 9 hours of wearing, however, it can be quite tricky with removing it depending on the strength of your makeup remover.

  • Does not clump lashes after layering
  • Buildable volume to dramatic
  • Lifts lashes very much

Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara Wand

The brush bristles are fairly short of two types; one with bigger gap and on the other side would be shorter bristles with close gaps. If you observe carefully, you could see that the brush head is slightly curved.

Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara Ingredients

Here is the ingredients listing from the back of the box.  Just wanted to highlight where this mascara does contain silica.

Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara How To

Generally, to use this mascara is to wiggle the wand from the base of the lashes towards the tip and repeat the steps to the desired results. How I use it is,

  1. Apply the mascara with the larger gap bristles on my upper lashes.
  2. Use the tip of the brush to reach out my corner lashes.
  3. Use the small gap bristles over my lower lashes.
  4. Use the tip of the brush to capture every of my lower lashes.

Benefit Roller Lash Super Curling & Lifting Mascara Before & After

This is how it turns out for my lashes and they are sky high rocket after the application. It looks as though I am wearing natural falsies. It is also recommended to coat another layer Benefit They’re Real Lengthening mascara.

Above all…

I definitely love the results from the mascara as my lashes are so much more curled up without using lash curler at all. It does take some time during the application to work on the product over my lashes. It gives a very natural look to the lashes and this would be great for those who wants to get her lashes done quickly yet still looking fabulous.

Over the time, I do notice my lashes weighs down by half and that was approximately after I wore it for 12 hours. I could say that the curls may hold less than 10 hours maybe. It doesn’t leave any smudges after the long hours of wearing it. Great element about this mascara is that it can be removed easily without leaving any traces, so no panda eyes at all!

Review: L’Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon, Great Lash Separation But …

If you have not seen my Instagram, I have about 5 mascaras in my makeup pouch recently. This makeup pouch is where I normally keep my most frequently use or everyday makeup. L’Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon was one of the mascaras between the five.

L'Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon

Lashes Spread Out like Butterfly Wings: More Visible and Magnified!

The revolutionary Elastometric Asymmetrical Brush inspired by butterfly wings. For the first time every, L’Oreal Paris creates an asymmetrical brush to fan out lashes so that they spread like butterfly wings.

Faux Cils Papillon’s brush works on lashes in three unique ways:

  • It’s top curvy side grabs lashes to curl and stretch out lashes so that they appear multiplied in just one stroke.
  • The side-angled tip helps elongate inner lashes out so that lashes are lengthened and separated.
  • Angled tip of the brush when applying to fan out lashes for a beautiful butterfly-wings effect.

Unique silky gliding formula

Faux Cils Papillon’s innovative formula softly envelops lashes for a silky effect, leaving them soft and smooth, never hard and clumpy. This is thanks to the formula’s unique Cocoon Fibres – fibres that are only 1.2mm long – and together with the brush, it can lift up lashes at the outer corner.

Last All day, smudge proof

With Faux Cils Papillon, you don’t have to worry about your mascara smudging at the end of the day. Lashes stay beautiful and spread out all day long, giving ou a long-lasting butterfly effect.

The result?

Double the butterfly-wings effect where lashes appear multiplied with just one stroke. Eyes can now flit about with flirty fluttery spread-out and magnified lashes.

L'Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon 2

This mascara comes a silver tube with blue sun rising-like lines to give the immensity of the product. It comes with waterproof formula which is great for those who has oily eyelids or lashes where tend to get smudges by the end of the day.

L'Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon Brush

The structure of the brush is very special by the look at it and the uniqueness of the mascara also comes from the brush. The brush was said to help to fan out lashes, separates and lengthens lashes effortlessly.

L'Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon Application

From the application, I could feel that it dries off real quick but yet to clump in any how I tried to apply it. The formula isn’t wet, just right to coat every lashes and the brush does separates my lashes which I believe could have function to made my lashes to be clump-free!

L'Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon Before & After

My lashes seems to have a bit more volume and length. See it yourself that my lashes are so well separated. It also gives a little of lifting effect and also goes so well for lower lashes.

L'Oreal Paris Faux Cills Papillon Ingredients

The mascara does contains alcohol and silica which may not be suitable for those who are sensitive. Aside from this, they do contain beeswax, rice bran wax, jojoba oil, and soluble collagen which able to protect the lashes.

Above all…

I did expected more from this mascara for it’s fancy brush, however the outcome was unsatisfactory. I was expected va-va-voom lashes like some soft of fan out fake lashes. Though with this outcome, it gives a very nice definition to the lashes, no clumping and waterproof. Definitely, there is a need to use an eye makeup remover first before cleaning up the entire face with either cleansing lotion or oil. I do think that this mascara slightly on the pricier side as it is a drug store product.

Retail Price: MYR54.90

Weight: 7.1ml

Availability: Nationwide leading pharmacies, super/hyper market or selective departmental stores.

PROs:

  • Waterproof
  • Clumpfree
  • Separates lashes

CONs:

  • Lashes are not exaggerated as it claims
  • Pricey

My Rating: 3/5

Review: CLIO Salon De Cara Hair Roll Cara Volume x Volume, Effortless Sky High Rocket Lashes & Grabs The Tiniest Lashes

It feels like I am on mascara spree, as I have already shared a mascara review earlier this week and now I am here with another. Yup, that’s how much I got to love mascaras and more to come. Remember CLIO Salon De Cara that was launched early last month? I was given the opportunity to try this mascara and here it is!

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara

Salon de Cara uniqueness includes,

  • First salon style brush mascara in Korea adopting salon technology
  • Salon oriented formula volume effect
  • Waterproof coating that will easily wash off without irritation
  • Salon ingredients using ceramide and Argan Oil, which provides strong moisturizing treatment to prevent eye lashes from being damaged.

    Hair Roll Cara (Volume x Volume)

    With a 15mm cylindrical roller brush, just like hair rollers. Hair Roll Cara gives you the complete volumise eyelashes and oriented light volume formula from Ballon Hallow Powder.

Watch how Sandara Park from 2NE1 work it with the mascara!

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara 2
Currently, Salon de Cara is packaged just like how it looks like from the first image. Inside the box, there is an individual pack of the mascara and it comes with freebie of electronic heated lash curler. Salon de Cara comes in three types and what I have here is called Hair Roll Cara which promotes volume for the lashes.

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara Description

At the back of the individual pack of mascara is mostly described in Korean and the only English description would be:-

Salon de Cara
No.1 Hair Roll Cara
Hair Roll brush delivers dramatic full volume with just one touch. Ballon Hollow Powder allows a mega volume with an airy touch. Waterproof film helps lashes last all day without smudging and you can easily wash it off with warm water.

Please pardon me as I am not able to read Korean and if any of you understands it, feel free to share with me.

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara 3

Hair Roll Cara comes in a pink and black tube of satin finish. A very standard size like most mascaras do.

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara Tube

The entire tube does not label which type this mascara and one way it to turn around the tube where it is printed Volume x Volume. That is also the shape of the brush inside of the tube.

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara Brush

Here is a closer look of the brush, tiny and short sized with little bristles. The brush is also in pink just like it’s tube but maybe from here, you are not able to tell because it is covered with the product. Seems like the formula is quite heavy and wet.

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara ApplicationThe formula does worry me during the application if it smudges or goes on to my eyelid and even if it weighs down my lashes. From the brush structure, this mascara would be great for those who have short and sparse lashes because it reached out every of my lashes beautifully. However, that doesn’t mean that long lashes cannot use this mascara, you’ll just take slightly more time to apply. I recommend to apply with zigzag motion to achieve the best effect of this mascara.

CLIO Salon De Cara Volume x Volume Mascara Before & After

The comparison of before and after definitely shows a big difference! My lashes are so much more lifted and do bare in mind that I did not curl my lashes at all. They also look darker, however, because the formula is quite wet that it tend to bring a few lashes to stick together which can be tricky while you apply.

CLIO Electronic Lash Curler

I have yet to use the electronic heated curler, hence no comments for this yet. It very light and battery operated. Battery is not provided in the box.

Above all…

I love this mascara of how sky high rocket it brought my lashes up effortlessly and no smudges for more than 9 hours. It was also easy to remove with my cleanser, no more panda eyes! Though applying it can be quite tricky, once you get around with it, I have learn to love it. The brush is small but it reaches out to my tiniest lashes and it took me a while to apply because I have long lashes. All the effect was effortless and shows great result but the volume effect is not so much there.

Price: MYR65.90

Availability: Watsons

PROs:

  • Effortless sky high rocket lashes
  • Reaches out tiny lashes
  • Easy removal

CONs:

  • Could be pricey
  • Long application duration
  • Volume effect is not as expected

My Rating: 4.6/5
