Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and Primer


I don't know a soul in the beauty blogging world who doesn't have massive amounts of love for cohorted. Known as the social shopping site the website allows users to buy high end and drugstore items at a discounted price, and the level of discount is dependent on how many people buy the item. There is a maximum discount applied, but usually this is between 20 and 50 % so its definitely still worth it in my opinion. Did I also mention you even earn points with every purchase meaning that after a time you will have enough points to get an even bigger discount on products, and if your a real hard core shopper maybe these points will even amount to a freebie!

Anyways when I saw that cohorted were selling the new Urban Decay Perversion Mascara along with a sample of the Eyelash Primer Subversion I was so excited and instantly joined the cohort! I think I eventually got this for under a tenner when the RRP is actually £17 so that is a bit of a saving in my opinion. As you may or may not know I'm a bit of a mascara fiend and I'm always looking to try new products on my lashes so this was just the perfect first ever cohort (there has been a lot more since then I tell ya!). I was literally counting down the days until this would arrive through my letterbox and when it did I wanted to tear it opened and put it on straight away.

As always Urban Decay have got it absolutely spot on with this packaging. It is eye catching, expensive looking and the mascara bottle also feels really heavy, which for some weird reason I have come to associate with products being expensive. Now when I first tried this the formula was a little too wet and hard to work with and I kept getting it everywhere. However, after the first few uses this issue was non existent and I was able to test the mascara properly. I was instantly impressed by the brush. I love those kind of brushes that have lots of little bristles, but also that are quite chunky as they always work best on my lashes which are pretty long and thick anyways. I also noticed that it was extremely black although you do have to be pretty careful to cover every lash after using the primer so as not to leave any of the white product showing through.

After a whole day of wear I was pleasantly surprised to notice that unlike my usual mascara it hadn't smudged onto my under eye area and it was pretty much the same as when I had first applied it in the morning. So its definitely sweat/smudge proof, which is good if you have oily or greasy eye lids like me. I was actually really impressed by how this seemed to wear on my eye lashes, and I feel like the primer definitely made all of the difference to the length of my eye lashes. One thing I would say is that the primer is a time consuming step in the morning and seeing as the mascara works pretty good anyways you may just want to skip this, however, I really thought it made a lot of difference so I'll definitely be using it. I think I'd maybe like to try the primer with my other mascaras to see if it makes a difference there too!

Do you guys ever use cohorted to buy make up? What have your favourite buys been?

  4. I love this mascara so much, it's my new favourite. I think heavy things feel more expensive too. It's all the cheap fake watches ;)
