Ok, let’s be real – I wasn’t really going to test THAT out for you! Being ‘sex-proof’ is just one of the claims of the new Urban Decay Troublemaker mascara.
The Claims of the Troublemaker Mascara
I’m quite fussy when it comes to mascaras and there have been some recent overly-hyped mascaras that I just did not get on with. When Urban Decay sent me their new Troublemaker mascara to try, I was a little sceptical of its claims. The mascara claims to give ‘super fat’ lashes (volumising), ‘super long’ lashes (lengthening) and even ‘sex-proof’ (waterproof). The mascara wand is designed to help coat and separate your lashes without getting clumpy as well as curl your lashes as it coats them.
What I liked
I’ve been using the mascara for the past few weeks now and I have to say that I like it. I’ll be completely honest and say that I’m typically a drugstore mascara type of woman. I agree with some of the claims made, such as the fact that I didn’t find it to be clumpy. I needed to build up the mascara with at least 3 coats for me to get a more volumising effect. I’m not too sure if this is accurate, but I believe the mascara has some fibres in its formula which may help with the volumising effect (the ‘fibre’ is only noticeable if you look close enough). I enjoyed this as a bottom lash mascara, as I felt it truly separated my lashes and gave me the volume I needed.
In terms of it being waterproof, I have to agree to a certain extent. This mascara didn’t transfer on me and I’ve worn it in most weather conditions, however I’ve not been swimming with it and nor have I worn it whilst exercising!
The final thing that caught my eye is the packaging of the mascara. The rainbow (almost holographic) effect of the packaging is just gorgeous! There’ve been a few releases lately with the same type of packaging and I’m definitely all about that. Check out my review of the Galaxy Palette by Fenty Beauty to see just what I mean!
What I disliked
The reason this isn’t my favourite of mascaras is because it just didn’t give me the lengthening that I needed. Despite the amount of coats I used, my lashes never seemed to have the lengthening effect I wanted. It may be due to the fact that I have quite curly lashes, and this mascara claims to curl whilst coating your lashes, so for me it was counterproductive.
Final Thoughts on the Troublemaker mascara
I enjoy using the Troublemaker mascara, however I use it more as an everyday mascara. As an everyday mascara it’s quite comfortable to wear, and even though it’s considered a waterproof mascara, it’s easy to remove with a makeup remover at the end of the day.
The Urban Decay Troublemaker mascara retails for £19.50 and can be found on the Urban Decay website here. They have also now released a travel size for £9 here. Have you tried this mascara? Let me know your thoughts below!
