Official Mascara Correspondent Ashleigh Ciucci’s been testing away with batches and batches of lash lengtheners, volumizers and darkeners. Her latest review is of Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara. Read on to see how it fared, in the words of Ash.
Curling mascaras are always fun to try because it’s so easy to tell if they’re worth your money. There are three factors that make a good curling mascara; brush shape, curling agent and clump-factor. So, here we go with Urban Decay’s version.
First of all, let’s talk brush shape. The curved plastic brush has small fibrous bristles. Not only will the curved shape egg-on your lashes to bend, but the bristly bristles get great product coverage from root to tip. After one coat, my lashes are soft and fluffy and do indeed have a bit of curl.
With the second coat, you’re able to work the product to even further curl. Just be careful because if you work the product too much, it can get a little clumpy. The curl is nice, thanks to the active curling agent: moringa seeds. I’ve heard of wheat protein being a common curling agent, but the moringa seed (native to the Middle East and Africa) aids in curling without getting crispy.
I wasn’t able to do too much of a mid-afternoon touch-up because it got a heavy at the roots and didn’t feather out to the tips. However, my lashes still looked good midday, so the touch-up wasn’t needed anyway. I did need to use makeup remover at the end of the night, but it was worth it. Keep in mind, straight-lashed ladies will still need to curl pre-mascara. Otherwise, buy this baby!
