Your favorite Urban Decay Perversion Mascara goes Waterproof!

Hello hello! I took an unannounced blogging break due to personal reasons and having to take care of my sweet little aging sick pug. Also, it's Summer who even wears makeup? My hobby time has turned fully to my Poshmark closet and new venture in re-use, re-purpose, recycle. I have become much more aware of my footprint and how much of that excess ends up in to our landfills and oceans.

That thought process has also spilled over in to my beauty life. After not buying any makeup for 3 months I had a realization. I don't need it! The "need" for everything new or latest was no longer there. It is freeing to not be ruled by consumerism. My goal now is to only buy products out of necessity (like mascara) and accept PR on a very limited basis. The new products & collection posts may become less frequent, but more targeted to only what I think is really really great. My love for beauty will never stop, it has just evolved in to something greater.

Okay back to what I was here for! Two things myself and any makeup wearing person CAN'T live with out is mascara and liquid liner. My favorite mascara, Urban Decay Perversion, is here in a waterproof formula along with a Fine-Point Eye Pen just in time for the hot hot heat Summer meltdown!

Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Mascara ($24)
Killer days, extreme workouts, splash zones...come at us! Our super-intense, blacker-than-black mascara is now waterproof, so it doesn't quit—even during your hottest moments—until you say when. Want to touch up before the afterparty? Done and done.

This ultra-creamy, lengthening, and volumizing formula coats each lash and never gets brittle or clumpy, so you can apply coat after coat. Our nourishing blend of proteins, amino acids, and honey extract promotes growth for bigger, blacker, and healthier eyelashes.

Perversion Waterproof came at the perfect time, I was scraping the last of my original Perversion tube. I am not a fan of waterproof mascara so to get a good review from a skeptic like me it has to be just like the original. I am happy to say this mimics the original Perversion, intensely black, sooty, maybe a little spidery in the best way but stays put on those sticky days. My lashes didn't feel dry, or flakey and looked just as full and separated. You will need to take the extra step to remove it with an eye makeup remover, but that's really the only downside. Finally a great waterproof formula that stays put but doesn't make your lashes suffer in the process. I'm impressed!

Urban Decay Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen ($22)
Calling all control freaks: Achieve cat-eye perfection in just one stroke with the Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen. Our ultimate liquid liner just got a major upgrade—this innovative brush-tip pen lays down semi-matte, blacker-than-black pigment with precise, effortless application.

Our new ultra-fine, flexible brush tip gives you full control over your shape and flick with ease. Plus, our waterproof formula keeps going until you say when, from office hours to after hours, plus any sweat sessions in between.

I love a strong sharp felt tip liner and Perversion gets it right. You can create the thinnest of lines to thick bold wings. The design of the brush is excellent, not too thick so you can achieve that perfect little wing flick with ease. The control with a pen style is fantastic, this is for sure going to become my daily liquid liner this Summer.  If you are a fan of the original Perversion the waterproof formula won't disappoint! Happy Summer!
