Product Review: Urban Decay Lingerie & Galoshes

Product Review: Urban Decay Lingerie & Galoshes

If this name doesn't get your attention, I don't know what will. This relatively new eyelash primer and waterproofing product from Urban Decay is called Lingerie & Galoshes ($17). One side of the tube contains a fiber-enriched lash primer to lift and lengthen. The other side houses a waterproofing solution so that your mascara won't run or flake.

Using it is easy. After you swipe a generous coat on all of your lashes, simply apply your mascara and let it dry for about two minutes. Then, apply the galoshes solvent on top of your mascara. Not only does waterproofing your eyelashes add shine, but now you can swim, cry and walk in the rain without worry.

While I love the idea of this product, there are two drawbacks. First, the smell of the waterproofing side is reminiscent of glue. And then, the idea and the gimmick of this product is really cute, but if you bought a plumping waterproof mascara you wouldn't really need it at all.

Having pointed this out, I like the cute lingerie and wellie logos on the tube, I appreciate the feeling of the flexible applicators, and I splashed some water on my face to see if the stuff really works — and it does! So you decide: Is Lingerie & Galoshes something you think you would be interested in buying?

i bought this at sephora and can i just say how extremely dissappointed i was??? the primer gave me clumpy spider eye lashes and even after combing them out, and putting on colored mascara, they looked shorter and thinner then with mascara alone. this product is aweful and i returned it!

I love Urban Decay - I use Big Fatty mascara as my everyday mascara - but I HATE lash primers. Things just go clumpy and wrong. And the idea of putting something on top of dry mascara is just ... the stuff of nightmares. I don't even want to think about it. Needless to say, I won't be buying this - and I definitely agree with everyone who's said to just buy a waterproof mascara!

I really like the name of this but like you said Bella it's not really needed if you get a good waterproof mascara.

Maybe if the mascara was included. But yeah, I'll just buy regular ol' waterproof mascara.

i tried this a couple of years ago and the primer definitely irritated my eyes. it might be because i wear contacts, but all in all, i was not impressed with this product.

I hate lash primers. Just regular mascara is fine, thanks.

like you said, i could just go and buy a plumping waterproof mascara. and w/ $17 that's enough to buy one made by a non-drug store name brand.

I'm glad you reviewed this, because I wasn't sure if it was supposed to *be* mascara, or just supplements. I'm tempted to try their primer since their eye makeup primer is so incredible. But, I don't think I really need the galoshes side... Unless it's like impervious even underwater when swimming.

That is cute :P But I am not a fan of UD either, I find their make-up a little on the cheap side.
