If you think you’re going to wear Urban Decay’s new Perversion Lashes in Trap ($15) to Target to buy cat food without having people really, really stare at you, you are mistaken. Because these lashes look completely cra-zay-zy in real life.
I mean, they look great in pics! They’re definitely dramatic…which makes sense; that is what the new Perversion Lash line is all about.
If you’re going out clubbing or have a big night on the town or if you just landed that job as a full-time dominatrix (*cracks whip), then yeah. Awesome lashes.
But for, like, real life kind of stuff, nuh-uh. I look downright insane with these on, like I should be hanging out with Britney when she shaved her head, and attacking cars with an umbrella.
Trap is one of three new $15 Perversion Lash styles, all permanent members of the UD line.
It’s weird… Whenever I wear Trap and post pics, I usually get some nice comments, and I think it’s because of the length of the lashes, especially the bundles around the center.
I think they make my eyes look wider, like that doe-eyed thing to the Nth degree, which I like. Too bad they’re about as comfortable as a pair of six-inch pointy high heels a half size too small.
So, that band — kudos to UD for making it black, which saves me from having to paint over it, but it’s stiff and almost straight, so the inner side just keeps lifting up, no matter how much glue I use.
Oh, and the lashes are hella heavy. I like my full-length falsies to feel lighter than air (I’m an Ardell 120 Demi Natural kinda girl); otherwise, I get a headache, which is what happens when I wear Trap.
I can’t wear these for much longer than 10 minutes at a time, so I’ll probably use them mostly for high drama pics.
I love the look…but they can be a pain.
AVAILABILITY: Available now in the permanent line at Ulta and select Macy’s stores, and also online

You really do learn something new every day
In addition to picking up a few Vitamin Waters and cat food at Target last night, I also went to Party City to get balloons for El Hub’s birthday today.
I decorated the house with them first thing this morning before he got up, and I’m also baking a cake.
Not one from scratch, mind you. It’s from a box (chocolate), because I’m seriously out of baking practice and don’t want to risk it.
Anywho, I found out at Party City that you’re not supposed to keep helium balloons in a hot car because they could pop as the gas expands.
Interesting… Why do I want to test that out?
