Urban Decay Lush Lash – The trial…

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 17 - 2011

I’m a bit dubious about lash lengthening products that rely on conditioning agents and peptides rather than…yano… proper ‘drugs’ to promote growth.

Ok, so on the plus side, you’ve got no risks of iris darkening or other unsavoury side-effects, but on the negative side… will it really have any effect?

Urban Decay have released Lush Lash (£28.00), a double-ended system that boasts two products enriched with peptides that work to lengthen, thicken and fortify your lashes.

O Rly.

Let’s see shall we?

It’s flippin’ tricky to get dead on accurate before/afters for this type of trial but I’ll do my best and have memorized how I was holding the camera (and where I was looking) to try and achieve the same pose in 6 weeks time.

So what can I expect according to Urban Decay’s clinical results?

  • Up to 25% longer, thicker lashes in 2 weeks.
  • Up to 40% longer, thicker lashes in 4 weeks.
  • Up to 63% longer, thicker lashes in 6 weeks.
  • Sounds good to me…

    I used Latisse last year so know the kind of results I achieved from a prostaglandin-based product and will be hugely interested to see if you can achieve the same kind of results from a trusted, high street name without the side-effect risk AND at a greatly reduced price.

    Wish me luck!

    Urban Decay Lush Lash System is priced at £28 and available online from BeautyBay, Debenhams and LookFantastic.

      I currently trying out Mavela double lash. Been using it for nearly 2 weeks and wish i’d been smart enough to take a before picture!

      Bought the cheapest lash growth product I could find – the L’Oreal lash serum and whilst it hasn’t made a difference length/volume-wise, my lashes are certainly stronger and less prone to breakage. (Although latter part may be due to me always smooshing my face into my pillow during sleep and bending them in the process).

      I’v haul post from Cherry Culture that I would love for you to check out please!

      I have used Avon Anew Strengthening Lash serum, and didnt bother taking “before” picture /slaps herself
      I’d say it made my lashes less prone to falling out and thicker but I didnt notice any major effects, nor have I acquired Bambi lashes overnight XD
      I have fairly long lahes, but they are not really curly- I wish there was something permanent to curl them, without much damage

      I’d love to see how this works. I actually have pretty long lashes naturally but I’d love super long cartoon ones 😛 I’ve not really tried any serums because I’m too poor/cheap. Having said that I did buy the L’oreal one and just couldn’t get in the habit of applying it.

    6. Nargis says:

      I was a bit sloppy with applying my serum too :p Sometimes I would do it everyday, and then leave it for days

      I’m interested to see how this works out. I wouldn’t try Latisse – too many side effects, but I’m desperate for longer lashes. Also lush lash, lishlash… seems like I should jump on that bandwagon!

    8. Alex says:

      I have ridiculously long lashes to begin with however I find that they are more sparse than I’d like. So I thought I’d give this a try.

      I have been using this product for nearly two weeks and while I haven’t noticed my lashes getting thicker, they most certainly are longer. They are, as Lillian put it, “cartoon-like”.

      Just wondering, did the product works as advertised?
