Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara

I try to keep negative views to a minimum because what might not work for me may be great for someone else but I hate it when good brands do something mediocre. And the new Troublemaker mascara from Urban Decay is mediocre at best.

Troublemaker Mascara by Urban Decay

Regular readers know I was a reluctant convert to the Urban Decay Perversion mascara (which it turns out I reviewed nearly exactly a year ago). I frankly find the make-up business's desire to name products 'sexily' completely wrong and ridiculous - this is not Urban Decay specific, loads of other brands do it, NARS and Too Faced to name but two. I was quite keen to try the Troublemaker mascara despite it announcing itself 'sex proof' (why Urban Decay? Why?) but god is it a big fat disappointment.

Troublemaker Mascara WandI am not a fan of a plastic brush but it's by no means a deal breaker this one however, makes doing the inner lashes absolutely impossible. Don't be fooled by the picture that's just a pointy blob of mascara on the end. The formula itself may lengthen the lashes a bit but does nothing for volume and you need to do a lot of layers to get anywhere near a satisfactory finish. I also found the lack of volume at the root meant my pale skin was very obvious so I needed to use a liner. The formula was also quite clumpy and because the brush had a fat end it meant you couldn't use it to separate the lashes.

The texture is not great and can be flaky. I didn't find it hard to remove, nor did it drop down my face as some reviewers have mentioned. I do really like the packaging, for some reason as it's not really my thing, but if feels chunky and fun and it's easy to spot in my pile of make-up. I just really don't see the point in bringing out a mascara that is such an inferior product to one already in the line.

If you want to go for an Urban Decay mascara stick with Perversion.
