Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara (£19.50) is another of those attention-seeking mascaras which claim to stay put “even during sex” ! I have to confess that I didn’t test that particular claim, but I don’t feel confident that it would stay in place for me in those circumstances since it had a tendency to smudge occasionally when I was doing nothing at all ….
Still, there is lots to love about Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara – so much so that despite the occasional mascara migration that happens with it on me, I’ve continued to use it. And that’s not something I usually do with mascaras that move.
What’s great about Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara is the way that it volumises and lengthens, coating the lashes with an intense, dramatic inky black colour. Urban Decay says that the mascara delivers lashes that look 13.7x the volume. I can neither confirm or deny this figure – let’s just say the results are impressive, certainly enough to make me overlook its smudgy shortcomings.
Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara comes with an unusual brush which grabs onto lashes, curling as it coats and hooking even the tiniest of lashes on the way. It’s very easy to use, and certainly delivers dramatic results. Just allow a little more time and cotton wool for mascara removal as this stuff is really thick and sooty.
