Product Review: Urban Decay Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara
Urban Decay's Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara ($22 US for the full-size version) can be best described as "fair to middling." You wouldn't know it from the copywritten blurb on the Sephora website, though: This mascara promises to lengthen, volumize, and nourish lashes without clumping or flaking, and the brush boasts a unique flexible bristle design. These claims are further bolstered by the dozens of user reviews claiming this is the Holy Grail of mascaras.
Unfortunately, in the 1-2 weeks that I used the sample size tube, I found it to be fairly disappointing. I liked the slick packaging design and the narrow tube opening which scraped excess formula off the wand as I pulled it out of the tube; this probably went a long way in preventing clumps. The brush boasts the same sort of molded flexible plastic bristles found on cheaper drugstore mascaras like Cover Girl LashBlast and LashExact. Unlike its inexpensive but excellent counterparts, though, Urban Decay's mascara began drying out and flaking and clumping after about a week. By the end of the second week, I had to stop using it because I couldn't tolerate the hassle of combing out clumps post-application.
