Rated 4.54 out of 5 stars
Even though I have like four of the samples, since the mascara I can't do without - I HAD to buy a full sized.
I have my 'run errands face' (you know, the fast one), and this is actually on it. Partly because I can put on my Perversion (and I've used it with other mascaras too, makes them better, but Perversion is still...way better) - it can be put on then your mascara can be put on before it totally dries. THAT is a big difference.
It's right, and normally its a gimmick - normally, lash primers are just another layer that had we taken the time with the mascara, we'd have gotten that. But this, really does condition my eyelashes.
I do NOT use it on my lower lashes and neither does my mom, as we have curly lower lashes and it seems to keep the mascara wet a bit longer and we get impatient.
If I'm doing a full face / going out? I do two coats of this, let it dry a bit more and do lower lashes. I get this smooth lacquer like finish.
MIracle? No. Game changer - lil bit. On my short list of 'musts' - yep!
(By the way, I've slowly changed over from another brand to UD because the quality is so much better on shadows, liners, and mascaras, and they have face-sprays that .... unbelievable. My list of what I wear is below.)
The primer weighs down my lashes and flattens the curl. I am using a mascara that has a very strong curling effect and it never loses the curl throughout the day. But if I use the primer my lashes are flat, unattractive, and feel heavy. Primer thickens the lashes but it makes them look gunky and as if I put on too much product. The idea of a primer is good but I don't think it delivers the desired effect on my lashes. Disappointed that it's not working...:(

Have Urban Decay eye products that I love and thought that this would be great, no!. Clumpy, dry and hard to remove. Sorry I didn't try it until after return time expired.
mc from los angeles
too heavy and clumps and weighs lashes down once maacara is on. it also seems dry. maybe I got a bad tube hopefully not due to the price
Beth from NH
This is the worst! It was nothing but clumps and I couldn't use it. Complete waste of money.

I prefer Lancome CLS BOOSTER XL
Gail from Cleveland
I definitely enjoy the lancome lash primer or the covergirl one to this. I feel like the brush was kinda scratchy on my eyes and didnt give my lashes much shape

Great product but sometimes seem thick and hard to get on my lashes but it does work!
Kay89 from Ca
I have tried other lash primers that work better than this one. I expected more from Urban Decay since I love some of their mascaras and lipsticks. This was just an ok product, but nothing more. I didn't hate it, but I didn't like it enough to buy it again.
Cheryl from KC
I'm always blinking and tearing up when I use this product but it does look GREAT. Works best with Perversion mascara from same manufacturer. I would recommend but I can't use it any longer.
Rita from New York
I have tried many lash primers over time and I always come back to urban decay. As I have gotten older my eyelashes have gotten thinner and this primer truly adds volume so that my mascara looks thicker and stays on better through the day.
I highly recommend it
Vicky from Yrxas
I love this product. Enhances my lashes for a older woman's lashes.
Rebecca from Virginia
Really liked it
Julie from Fort Lauderdale
Love this primer. My mascara used to run and it drove me crazy! This primer is great and keeps the mascara on your eyelashes only.
Alisa L from Syracuse, NY
I normally buy a different brand, but this was on sale so I thought I would give it a try. It goes on great, but when you go to put your mascara on it gets clumpy because of it. Primer is usually thinner and this is thicker than any I usually use.
Jess from New Jersey
I've tried probably every primer there is and this one is beyond my favorite. Perfectly fans out your eyelashes . Makes them full but not thick and gives length. Other primers I've tried tend to make them longer but not fuller. This one Definitely does both and does not clump up. Gives the look of false lashes without looking false and overly thick or too long. Beats out all the other brands I've tried and ive literally tried all of them.
Erin from Ozark, MO
I've tried many many primers over the years and this is truly up there with the BEST! I love a good thick primer that grabs the lashes and this one really does it!
Cheryl P. from Garner, NC
Not only does the Subversion primer make a fantastic base for my mascara, but it conditions my lashes so they don't fall out like they used to. I love it so much, I bought one for each of my sisters to try.
Mature Customer from IL
My eyelashes have thinned from both chemo growback and age. As I think that my eyes are my best feature, I need products that will work and stay on. Despite Urban Decay's hip name, it offers great products for mature customers. Subversion lash primer is a great addition to my eye regimen, and I am now a fan. It gives staying power to my mascara, offers a little plumpness to my lashes, and doesn't irritate my sensitive eye area.
I absolutely love the Urban Decay Subversion! My eyelashes used to fall out pretty bad. Since I have been using the Subversion primer, I don't have that problem anymore. It makes an excellent foundation for my mascara without flaking or smearing. I feel like it is conditioning my lashes as it primes them. I love it!
Beai from CA
I use with the accompanying mascara perversion. Nice combo
Sarah from Philadelphia
This is the best mascara primer I've ever found. It will make a big difference in your mascara and lashes. It's very soft and will prevent clumpy eyelashes
Flowerpwr from ut
Ok this is the cream of the crop primer I have been using it for 5 years and I always get compliments on my lashes .. I have found out that Urban Decay will discontinue this so I will be stocking up
EB from MN
First of all, I'm very lucky to I have very long, naturally curled lashes. I had an issue with my lashes tangling throughout the day. Other primers have made my eyes sting. This primer, which I've purchased at least five times now, is perfect for preventing my lashes from tangling. Very volumizing and lashes feel softer after cleansing (I love panthenol in lash primers) ! Holy grail!
Cassie from USA
I have ok eyelashes, so I gave this a try… it makes a huge difference and I love this product
Scle67 from Daniels, WV
I'm disappointed that this doesn't thicken lashes. It might nourish with the ingredients but don't go to this if you want something that's a base to thicken. Sales woman highly recommended it and I was really hoping it would be great but I'm disappointed.
Judi from Greater Chicago
Received a sample of this product and absolutely loved it! I prime my lashes with a curler, apply one coat of Subversion and top with one coat of mascara. It helps separate my lashes and extends the life of my mascara.
