First Impressions: Urban Decay Little Perversions Set (On Sale at Sephora for $24)

NOTE: Before I get into this post, I want to make sure you know that Sephora has JUST added a ton of new items to their sale page HERE, including Sephora polishes for $1 each (regularly $5), and lots of products from Make Up For Ever, Tarte and other brands. So get over there and check out those deals before they sell out. (Thanks to reader on Instagram for the tip about those $1 polishes!)

Which brings me to the Urban Decay Little Perversions Set. I ordered this a little while ago on the Sephora site for $24 and after I ordered it, it went out of stock. But I just noticed that it's BACK in stock today, so that's why I'm doing this first impressions post. I thought you might want to hear my thoughts about it since it's once again available for $24 (regularly $45). So let's take a look!

 Urban Decay Little Perversions Set 
(retail: $45; currently on sale at Sephora for $24 - $75 value)

Keep reading for a closer look...

Right off the bat, I want to mention that this set contains two full-size eyeliners, one deluxe sample size liner, one travel size mascara and one deluxe sample size lash primer. Considering that there are some drugstore eyeliners out there that retail for about $10 each, I feel like this is already a good value at $24, which is why I rushed to get this post up since this is now back in stock at Sephora. But let's take a closer look at what you get:

All of the products in this set come in this little makeup bag you see above. I feel like I wouldn't want the general public to see me with a bag that says "Little Perversions" since that can be takem out of context when it comes to non-makeup-people. It just feels kind of weird. But hey, I'm old and I think about these kinds of things too much--I'm sure some of you wouldn't mind at all! 

Again, you get full-size versions of All Nighter Eyeliner and Ink For Eyes Waterproof Precision Eye Pen. You also get a deluxe sample of 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion, a travel size Perversion Mascara and a deluxe sample of Subversion Lash Primer. 

All of the samples in this set contain enough product for multiple uses. The Perversion Mascara sample comes with a long wand (which you'll see in a second) and not one of the typical stubby wands you often get with sample mascaras. The Subversion Lash Primer does have one of those typical stubby wands. As for the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil sample, I think it's a very decent size and you could use it dozens of times before it sharpens down to a nub.

Subversion Lash Primer (deluxe sample size)

Perversion Mascara (deluxe sample size)

As I mentioned above, the wand on the Perversion Mascara sample is long and not one of those typical stubby wands you often get with sample mascaras. 

All of the eyeliners in this set are black:

Ink For Eyes Waterproof Precision Eye Pen (full-size)

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion (deluxe sample size)

All Nighter Eyeliner (full-size)

Keep in mind that my swatches were photographed in extreme close-up. In real life, all three of these liners are rich, saturated and very black. Of course the liquid liner has a bit of shine to it (but not nearly as shiny in real life as what you see above), while the two pencil liners set to a matte finish. I did a quick rub test on these liners and Ink for Eyes did NOT budge. The other two liners did smudge a bit, but nothing terribly dramatic.

Additional thoughts: As I mentioned at the top of this post, I think that this is a great value for $24 total since you do get two full-size liners here (there are drugstore eyeliners out there that retail for $10 each). Just the full-size Ink for Eyes and All Nighter liners alone retail for $20 EACH on the UD site, so it's almost like you're getting a full-size liner plus three deluxe samples for free. If you've been wanting to try these eye products from Urban Decay anyway, I think this is a fantastic way to do so. But don't wait, since this did sell out once already on the Sephora site. Click here to grab it ASAP if you're interested.

Do you own this set, or any of the products within this set? I would love to hear from you!

  1. Thanks for sharing!! I see this up on the US site, so I'm waiting for it to be available in Canada as well! Ahh for $24, this set is such a great steal!!

  2. I love UD eyeliners. They are my favorite. I have Perversion and it is great for the waterline. This is a fantastic deal, for sure! Thanks for the great little look-see.

  3. Thanks for the heads up about the nail polish. I just ordered 20 shades and my nail polish junkie ego just went into ecstasy!

  4. I got this for christmas and I love it!! The mascara is travel-size, not sample so I think that's why it has the bigger wand. I've gotten the mascara and the 24-7 in past IPSY bags and loved them so this set was awesome for me!
