mascara + conditioners + growth serum = luxe lashes
Have you ever heard that eyes are the windows to the soul? Maybe that is why we are so obsessed with eyelashes. They inspire a billion-dollar business. Very few people are born with naturally gorgeous eyelashes – except Elizabeth Taylor who was born with a double row of them. The rest of us mere mortals have to rely on mascara, lash curlers, or even growth serums.
I don’t know about you all, but I find it tough to navigate these waters. Growth serums scare me. A curler nearly put my eye out. And who can choose the right mascara in a sea of thousands? Thankfully, Urban Decay has thrown us a life preserver with Lush Lash Mascara.
Lush Lash Mascara is a growth serum infused conditioning mascara. Call me weird, but it sounded a little scary to me at first. Happily, I am here to tell you that it is anything but frightening. I feel like I am becoming somewhat of an unofficial mascara correspondent here. I have had the opportunity to test some really wonderful mascara products over the past year or so, and I can say Urban Decay’s Lush Lash may just be the best that I have tested yet.
This specially formulated mascara has a number of conditioning ingredients that make your lashes very soft. No more brittle lashes or flaking. Even better, it is infused with a growth serum chock-full of peptides and moisturizing panthenol.
And don’t forget, this is Urban Decay – vegan, cruelty-free and green minded. So it’s not surprising this is a gentle formula that should not irritate even the most sensitive of eyes. No, Lash Lush it is not a waterproof formula. But I experienced no smudging or running under some harsh conditions.
I also liked the rather large, hour-glass shaped brush that helps evenly apply the mascara to every little lash. And best of all, Lush Lash Mascara truly does promote lash growth with regular use. After a month or so of daily use, my lashes appear to be fuller and healthier – in a word, LUSH.
• effectively thickens and lengthens your lashes.
• gorgeous signature UD purple packaging
• quality, hourglass-shaped brush.
• not a waterproof formula (I say give it a try regardless, as you may be very surprised. I was.)
I am so happy with Lush Lash that I am planning on breaking one of my cardinal rules. Normally, I am so cheap that I never pay more than $10 for mascara. (I hate throwing it away after only 3 months.) But even at $20 per tube, this stuff is more than worth it. Run, don’t walk to pick up this amazing new mascara. You won’t be sorry.
