I never bought into the hype when Urban Decay first launched Perversion and Subversion, I wasn't a fan of the brushes and Subversion seemed like an unnecessary extra step. Apparently I am wrong sometimes and I did need them both in my life. When I went to the Urban Decay Launch at Brent Cross Shopping Centre, the duo were inside the goody bag so naturally I tried them as soon as I could to see what all the fuss was about.
Perversion is bigger, blacker and pretty impressive lashes in one handy little tube. Promising to give insane volume, length and longevity without smudging, flaking or the need to use falsies. The formula is really creamy and when I first pulled the wand out I thought it was going to be really wet but it clings and coats every lash without me having to do an emergency clean up operation unless I sneeze. I like plastic wands which separate each lash without clumping which is why I tend to avoid wands like Perversion but I shouldn't of judged because it does exactly what I want just with more volume and a touch of sass. The wand is just the right weight to have complete control over your lash look, making sure you have the most defined lashes in all of the land.
Pair up Perversion with Subversion and you're on to a winning streak. Subversion is a lash primer which coats the lashes with a cream formula that adds weight to every lash allowing Perversion to grip onto something making lashes appear longer, thicker and stronger. I find that I have to apply Perversion pretty quickly after the lash primer but the end results more than make up for having to do a speedy application and if I can manage it at 7am in the morning before coffee then so can you.
Have you tried either of these mascaras? What did you think?
