Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara Review

Urban Decay has a brand new curling mascara available for Spring. w00t! Curled lashes for Spring, yup, just in time to sport that doll-like look for the warmer weather. I think we are all searching long and hard for that perfect mascara that curls our lashes and holds the curl throughout the day.

Does Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara?

Check it!

A formula that boosts curl and separates lashes while holding curl effectively throughout the day.

This is a plastic curved wand that fits the contour of my lash line quite nicely so applicator gets a plus so far. I like applicators like this as I’m less likely to poke an eye out with it thanks to the curved brush.

The applicator pulls lashes up and out nicely enough however I think curling prior to application works even better as it really gives the mascara something to grasp onto without creating a mess since the formula runs quite thick and black. Pigmentation isn’t wow aspiring here but it is a nice dark black shade that emphasizes lashes nicely particularly if you’re doing a smoky eye look.

Although thick the formula wears lightly on lashes and doesn’t weight them down. The applicator has a knack for pulling lashes upward and actually seems to hold curl quite well. My before and after photos are the mascara in use sans curling prior however I’ll update later with a photo of the mascara used on lashes curled prior as the results are even more dramatic.

The mascara achieves a very nice fringe of fat lashes with good length and exceptional curl.

For really dramatic results I suggest curling prior as I noticed that the mascara applies an ickle messy on lashes that haven’t already been curled and separated.

  • Anyone who wants to add curl to lashes and keep it all day.
  • Anyone who wants a fuller fringe of lashes with curl that lasts all day!

  • Those with stubbier lashes who aren’t used to curling before mascara (if you’re one for simply relying on mascara sans using a curler you might find results a bit messy during application).

Use in conjunction with an eyelash curler the results with Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara are pretty damn nice plus the fact that the formula doesn’t make my lashes crunchy or stiff is a plus and of course, the fact that my lashes don’t go limp after a few hours is a bonus! Formula can prove a bit messy if applied sans curling so be aware during application and go slowly as you might notice a bit of clumping and general messiness. Sadly, mascara wasn’t too great at building up so work quickly while the product still has a “wet” feel to avoid crunchy lashes.


Quite a good mascara overall!

Anyone try?

    Looks beautiful and I’m impressed by the results! Definitely prioritizing this on my list of mascaras to try. 🙂

    About how much will this retail for? And as always, thank you for keeping your readers updated, Muse!

    Thanks for reviewing this! I’m usually skeptical about UD mascaras since they switched the original formula (and tube) of Skyscraper mascara making it not that great and Big Fatty being a bit of a let down…but I was super curious on what you would think of Supercurl. 🙂

    Looks good! I got the Skyscraper mascara in one of the Beauty In A Box sets, and I love it. But you are so right: you NEED to curl prior to applying, or it can be a mess…and you need to wait a while for it to dry before even attempting to curl them again. I probably -won’t- be investing in this, since I have a basically full tube of Skyscraper, but this looks like a quality product!

    Aaaah! I love UD, and I’ve been looking for a good mascara… could this be the one? Thanks, Musey! <3

    I lament my stick straight lashes every day and am always on the hunt for THE perfect curling mascara. I saw this the other day when it was first released & said to myself “I’m going to wait & see what Musey says about this one before I get it.” You have completely sold me on it so thank you!!!!
