Urban Decay Perversion Mascara VS Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara (I Tried Two Samples, Which One Would I Buy)

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara VS Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara (I Tried Two Samples, Which One Would I Buy)
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara VS Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara
I sampled two mascaras, and thought I would tell you which one I preferred. My lashes are not spectacular and I'm always looking for both volume and length in a mascara. My lashes need all the help they can get... In truth, I don't normally purchase high end mascara, alot of drugstore mascaras give me similar results. I cycle through my mascara every 3 month and knowing that I will be throwing it away in a short time doesn't give me the incentive to put out the money. 
The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara is a volumizing mascara that didn't flake or smudge on me. It is black, one of the blackest mascara's that I've tried and it really impressed me. If you're looking for a deep black mascara to use when wearing false lashes, this one would be great. It did fall short on providing length which is something that I do need. I did use it to coat my lower lash line and the wand gave me control to do so, it was big for the smaller lashes but I didn't make a mess. When it came time to remove the mascara, it wasn't difficult to remove.

The Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara was a smaller sample but I did get quite a few uses out of it, enough to really form an opinion. It has a similar wand to the Urban Decay Perversion but I did get different results. This one gave me volume and length which I loved! It built well with multiple coats and wore great throughout the day. No flaking or smudging and was the winner between the two. When trying to coat my lower lashes, it was possible but tricky because of the wand. I did make a mess if I was hurrying. 

Again, the Lancome Monsieur Big was the winner for me. It is expensive, I would probably opt for a travel size which would last quite a while anyway. I'm still using the Perversion mascara is wasn't horrible, it might pair well with a lengthening mascara. I will have to give that a try. It was fun to pair these two samples and pick a winner. Have you tried either of these? What did you think?


  1. Oh, that's an interesting comparison. I have short straight lashes and I find an LVL treatment helps me the most, any mascara looks good on top afterwards! :)

    1. I'll have to look up the LVL treatment. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. I really want to try Monsieur Big, but I have several unopened mascaras waiting in the wings that I would like to get through first. Sounds like everyone is raving about it!

  3. I haven't tried either - or maybe I had a mini of the Lancome - I can't be sure! I'm going to look through my samples and see if I can find it because it sounds great! xx

  4. I repurchased the UD mascara a few times but have yet to try the Lancome one! I might just pick it up soon.

  5. I actually have a few samples of the UD Perversion Mascaras. I don’t remember if I have tested it out yet. I’ll have to dig it out soon. I usually like LancĂ´me mascaras though. I end up with samples all the time.

  6. Ahhh samples are amazing aren't they? Especially mascaras are so personal.. it works so differently on different people so it's great to try it out before committing to a full size product!

  7. The brushes almost look identical! Love trying samples, that way you can get a proper feel for the product without having to commit to spending out on the full size.
