Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara


Splurge vs. Steal Beauty: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products that are available online and in-store. Also make sure to check out my blog, HonestlyJamie.com for even more beauty product reviews, advice and tips.

Urban Decay Perversion mascara is for lack of better word, AWESOME. It’s what you might call a bit of a creamy mascara, which is good thing, that has a special brush that glides through each individual lash so that you get no clumps and no little flakes…you know, the thing that people usually hate about mascara. As a bonus, it’s also formulated with a complex that stimulates lash growth (yay!).

The only downside?

It’s $22 which, sure, isn’t a crazy amount of money for mascara, but I recently tried a good alternative with some similar results. The L’OREAL PARIS Voluminous Miss Manga mascara also has an awesome brush, called a 360 flexor, that builds bold volume with high intensity. The design of the brush also allows 15 times more lash volume and that wide-eyed doe look that most women really love.

I actually have both of these. After getting a perversion freebie at ulta while buying my Naked 2 palette, I didn't want to buy another, so I decided to try miss manga. Unfortunately I wasn't aware that this mascara is clearly inferior in everyday. The brush is shaped in a way that I can't get to my inner eyelashes on the top and bottom, and it looks trashy. I would never recommend it, the _perversion mascara is definitely the better choice here._
