Without meaning to repeat myself I’m still working on getting longer luscious lashes like so many women out there. Maybe in todays modern world with false lashes, inserts and lash extensions women today have unrealistic expectations of products and what they can ‘actually’ achieve on us. So many times you see the words ‘clinical trials’ and x percentage of women noticed blah blah blah. That was why I chose Urban Decay’s Lush Lash system. As I’d seen neither clinical trials or percentages of women claiming it worked. I wasn’t given false hope or left feeling it must be my stupid lashes that just didn’t work with these so called miracle products. I’m sorry I sound like I’m on a soap box don’t I! I don’t mean too, its just like many I get frustrated spending so much money on products that don’t meet the expectations we ‘presume’ they should. When I tested Talika Lipocils I went into it ‘hoping’ there would be at least some ‘noticeable’ change for me. In that I could at least see something had occurred and the product had somewhat worked. This is exactly what I went into the Urban Decay Lush Lash system with too. I did not expect massive results but something subtle would be good!
I purchased my Urban Decay Lush Lash System for £28.00 at Debenhams. I hadn’t seen it before nor heard of it and had never read a blog review either (I’m sure there’s some out there!!). I thought it sounded good although what really grabbed me in is what’s written on the back of the box as it had me laughing, ‘We actually heard a girl in our office cry, “This sh*t really works!” ‘
Whether it did or didn’t work at that point I didn’t know but I liked the bold brass comment! Here’s some info from the box if you haven’t seen or read about the product. It gets you longer thicker lashes – 25% in 2 weeks, 40% in 4 weeks and 63% in 6 weeks (And they have tested it).
Urban Decay Lush Lash Serum
It’s really easy to apply you have 2 wands in the lash system; a thin eyeliner like brush in the clear serum which is filled with lash stimulating peptides – this is applied along the lash line at the base of the lashes at bedtime and the other end you have a mascara like brush with white conditioning mask which is also filled with lots of growth stimulating ingredients which you apply after the serum.
Mascara Ended Conditioning Mask
Application was easy and I had no problems, as the conditioning mask is white it actually dries clear so you do get it on your skin/makeup with won’t see it once it’s dried. The serum is also clear so no problems there and both can be worn under makeup (At least I have been for the past 2 weeks).
This is just the 2 week review, but I intend to also do a 4 week review and the final 6 week review to see if they claims are as good as it says.
Bad things I noticed while using this product; for a day or 2 I noticed a slight irritation to my eyes when I applied the product. Neither the conditioning mask or serum have a real odour maybe an extremely faint one but nothing I think that would have caused irritation, however I found my eyes really watered like there was a strong odour (Kind of like onions without the mass stinging). This only occurred for maybe 10 minutes but was a little strange. I didn’t notice any itching, soreness or redness otherwise I’d have stopped using it.
Now for this bit you have been waiting for, in 2 weeks did I notice any difference including a (Possible) 25% growth gain. I never actually measured my eyelashes before I started but did take photo evidence to go along with this review.
Eyelashes before Urban Decay Lush Lash System
I did notice my eye lashes looked fuller and darker but that could have been due to them being thicker they appeared darker. I have also noticed some length increase. Not a huge amount but enough for me to have a few lashes on my upper eyelash line right in the middle that are slightly curling upwards. They were never this long before, so an increase none the less and something that makes me feel satisfied that so far the product is doing what it says.

I want to make the point clear though that this is not a dramatic improvement just a subtle one.
