Hello Loves, 

So I have been on the product trying binge. I often get like this at some point during the year whereby the urge to try new products is high. I was given the opportunity to try out the new Urban Decay Troublemaker mascara and I thought to share my thoughts with you all. 

Let’s talk Packaging:

The product comes in a “double-walled, faceted tube with a prismatic finish” which gives a beautiful holographic effect when you hold it. You get 7.3g (0.25oz) of product from the full sized version, it also comes in a travel size version. The packaging is made of plastic and is quite light to hold, it also comes in a unit carton with the same prism effect. It comes in a black shade and retails for £19.50.

The wand has quite long and easy to hold, The brush is made up of precision, short, sharpish hooks which are designed to help separate your lashes and add volume. 
  • This product is vegan,
  • Using this product will deliver lashes that look 13.7x the volume
  • The formula volumizes, lengthens and separates, while the custom brush grabs onto lashes, curling as it coats 
  • It claims to give thicker, longer and fanned- out looking lashes. Can be layered without clumping and even encourages you to layer up
  • The comb is designed to comb through and separate lashes to make it look like you have more whilst giving a volumizing effect. 

I am a UD fan so obviously, I was excited to try out this product. Off the bat, the price point of £19.50 is a bit steep for me but it falls in line with the typical high-end price point of other Urban Decay mascaras so no shock there. 

I love the packaging, it looks expensive, fun and unique. The twist open and close cap helps to ensure that the product doesn’t dry out, might seem like a no-brainer but you would be surprised that some brands don’t care about this. The shade is true black and does show up on your lashes when applied (over and over again). 
I found the wand a bit difficult to work with, though the tiny brushes mean that it will get your bottom lashes looking snatched it also means that there is often a huge probability you will end up poking yourself in the eye. The brush isn’t soft, the hooks are quite sharpish and it does tend to hurt when I accidentally poke myself. 

The formula helped with volumizing my lashes but it did nothing for the curl action or length it claims. I also found that I had to go over and over and over my lashes to see a difference and at the end, it ended up clumping my lashes. 
My left eye tends to tear up when in humid environments, I find that the mascara runs a little (stinging the eye) when this in wet or humid conditions so WATCH OUT.. it hurts. Although it mentioned nothing about the wear of the mascara, you would think for the price point that it would be waterproof, sadly its not. 

Unfortunately, this mascara did not hit the mark for me, I would only buy it for use on my bottom lashes and for my vanity (the packing is goals). I prefer the perversion mascara (though that has its pros and cons), what other mascaras are you loving? Have you tried this mascara out? what are your thoughts? comment down below.
