Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara

Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara

Stir up trouble with Urban Decay‘s newest edition! The Troublemaker was everything I expected it to be – a mascara that lifts and volumizes…

I was so excited when this arrived on my doorstep! Urban Decay haven’t released a mascara for a couple of years now and I’ve always been a fan of their Perversion mascara, so you can imagine how intrigued I was to compare this.

First things first, I LOVE the packaging! The prismatic colours and the tube shape is very similar to their bullet lipsticks. I must admit the brush instantly drew me in also, their custom bristles are designed to comb and separate lashes to make it look like you have more of them.

The tiny precision hooks aim to grab lashes and pull the product through – for an instant lash-voluminzing effect. Sounds good right?

Now the Troublemaker mascara has a lot to live up to with 13.7x the volume to make lashes thicker, longer and feathered out, let’s see how I got on!

I’m quite lucky to have naturally long lashes so I was expecting Troublemaker to compliment this, and it did. The image below shows my lashes with just one coat. The first time I wore this I actually got complimented on, someone asked if I was wearing natural falsies – to which they we’re surprised that it’s only a mascara.

I found it really easy to use and I could see how every individual lash had product on and felt more volumized. Overall I love the finish of this, you only need about two coats which is good compared to other mascara where you have to build it. Unlike a lot of high-end mascaras, this doesn’t budge or crumble either and you don’t get an imprint underneath your skin like some. So it’s definitely long-lasting which in UD’s words is Sex proof… They claim that it holds up in hot situations so I can see this mascara being a great addition to my holiday makeup.

The only downfall of this mascara is, it’s a killer to remove, considering it’s not waterproof it took a good few attempts of makeup remover and wipes! It kind of reminded me of Benefit’s They’re Real for the staying power when you need to clean it off. Nevertheless, I had a feeling I would love this mascara and I do.

So Troublemaker? Hands down, probably not the best I’ve tried but one of the nicest for the custom brush and packaging. Would I repurchase? Maybe…

Have you tried this? Would you?

    Oh god you might need a proper oil based makeup remover for that! Although I love that this doesn’t crumble, my current mascara is a little crumbly and it just looks really rank halfway throughout the day! Can’t beleive how long your lashes are in the photo! xx
