Manufacturers will do anything and everything to get a potential buyer’s attention. In the case of eyelash growth products, there is a tendency for companies to make their products appear better than they actually are. This is the case with Urban Decay Lush Lash System.
With Urban Decay Lush Lash System, the manufacturer flaunts percentages in their ad on Amazon—25 percent longer and thicker eyelashes in 2 weeks, then 40 percent in 4 weeks, and finally 63 percent in 6 weeks.
Unlike other companies that put up other attractive spiels like “all-natural” or “dramatic new lashes”, Urban Decay just lets the percentages speak for them, although I wish they presented the clinical studies that allowed them to come up with these figures.
What is Urban Decay
Urban Decay is actually two products in one attractive lavender and silver tube. These two products are the Lush Lash Serum itself, found on the silver end of the tube, and the Conditioning Mask found on the lavender end. The ingredients of the Lush Lash Serum are purely chemical, and they include Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, Tropolone, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Borate,
Disodium EDTA, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Chloride, Boric Acid, and Aqua (Water). It is this serum that promotes eyelash growth, thanks to the presence of the peptide.
Moving on to the Conditioning Mask, this is the one that contains the natural extracts. Among the natural ingredients are Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (Cera Carnauba / Cire de Carnauba), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, and Yeast Extract. Rounding up the ingredients list for the mask are Aqua (Water), Stearic Acid, Clyceryl Stearate, Polyisobutene, Silica, Acrylates Copolymer, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Isostearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Panthenol, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glycerin, Allantoin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, and Phenoxyethanol. The mask functions to condition and nourish the eyelash strands.
How to Use Urband Decay
What are the instructions for applying Urban Decay? After washing your face and eye area and completely removing all makeup, start with the Lash Serum. Twist the silver end of the tube open. Using the thin yellow brush, draw a thin line of the product along the roots of your upper eyelashes.
Let the serum dry. Replace the brush into the silver tube and twist it close. Next, twist and open the lavender end. Using the thicker brush, apply the Conditioning Mask directly to the eyelashes from roots to tips. Once you have completely coated the eyelashes, replace the brush into the lavender tube and twist it close. Apply the product every night before going to bed. Do not remove both ends of the tube.
Because of the double brush, it is rather difficult to maneuver and your hand might end up touching the brush. Always practice sanitary applications.
Urban Decay Lush Lash Reviews
Sadly, the results of the product were rather mixed. There were quite a number of women who were able to see new eyelash growth and, more so, fuller and thicker lashes.
One even reported dramatic changes within a week. However, for most women, such changes were not noticed within the number of weeks that were promised by the manufacturer. There were even some women who did not notice any changes in their eyelashes at all.
They would have wanted to continue using the product, but the price was already a bit steep for them, especially considering that there are cheaper products out there that do work.
