When I was in high school, I owned a tube of bright teal mascara. I wore uniforms to my classes, and makeup was my medium of choice for stylish, creative expression. With one light coat, I’d get a barely-there color that looked beautiful when caught by the light. Heaping on multiple layers, I’d have a straight-from-the-runway style that would earn me detention. Back then, wearing colorful mascara was my epitome of making a bold makeup statement – whether it was for special occasions or rocked on the daily. Which is why I’m so excited about the upcoming launch of the Urban Decay Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara.
The popular cosmetics brand is releasing five double-ended lash colors to help you craft statement-making looks. One side of the wand features a matte color to drench your eyelashes in fierce colors, while the flip side offers a sparkling metallic topcoat.
In ways that my own high school mascara wasn’t, these are highly pigmented, easily customizable, shiny without being made out of 100% glitter dust, and ready for all the Instagram selfies. Even if you aren’t sure about their wearability in your own everyday makeup wardrobe, know that they can also be used as fun brow products too: you can go all out crafting trendy rainbow eyebrows, or just add a hint of sparkle to your natural arches.
The debut product drop will feature shades called Gonzo (a perfect bold blue), Dime/Goldmine (a dazzling silver and gold combo), Vice (the brand’s iconic purple), Deep End (my new teal love) and Junkshow (a hot pink you’ll see coming for miles.) Each Urban Decay Double Team duo will sell for $24, and is coming soon to the brand’s website.
