The Perfect Pair

Whilst eye makeup can be the most transformative kind of makeup you can buy and definitely my favourite, removing it can be a nightmare. I've come across many different types of eye makeup removers; oil cleansers, cleansing balms and of course, micellar waters like Bioderma. Having used them all I definitely prefer the ease of using a micellar water, but I also love the gentle softness of a balm (they're probably my favourite type of cleaner too). To my surprise the list didn't stop there. A recent trip to Sephora lead me in the direction of the Urban decay section where I picked up their much loved mascara Perversion said to be 'BIGGER.BLACKER.BADDER' than ever before. That immediately sold it to me, however I did worry about how I was going to remove such a badass mascara without damaging or irritating my eyes. My logic was that if Urban Decay's mascara was that long-lasting, defining and 'bigger' than ever, I'd have to get the Melt Down Makeup Remover to make the set.

Urban Decay just get it right every time. Perversion is completely what I anticipated yet it still pleasantly surprised me. One application gets you a brilliantly even coverage of pure black wonder. It's got a creamy texture so that it glides on and drys relatively quickly. Unlike most mascara's I've used, even Benefit's They're Real Mascara, it doesn't clump at all. It truly delivers. If you're also a stickler for appearance, then Urban Decay won't fail you; the tube is a sexy, glossy design emblazoned by the Perversion tag line. 

Urban Decay's Melt Down Makeup Remover is also a cream like consistency; one that is far more enriching and effective. For me it feels like a light cream that removes makeup easily and comes off quickly with a flannel or muslin cloth. With some cleansers I'm a little scared to put them directly on my eyes, but this just doesn't irritate my eyes at all and a little goes a long way. This stuff is suitable for all skin types and filled with goodness; 'Sea Fan Extract combats inflammation, while Beta Carotene (a source of Vitamin A) and Gatuline In-Tense (harvested from the South African Rain Forest Peekabo Plant) revitalize collagen production. Cranberry and Raspberry Seed Oils, along with Kukui Nut and Oat Oil, moisturise and replenish', I couldn't have put it better myself.
