I was sent this mascara, Urban Decay’s Troublemaker, a few months back, but since I already had one opened, I didn’t want to open another one so soon. So I recently started using it and I have kind of mixed feelings about it. The packaging is amazing, let’s start from that. It’s the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. It says it’s super-fat, super-long, sex-proof mascara, and especially that last one caused quite a stir when it first came out. Let’s comment about those first two statements though; It has quite a thin wand, with small spikes, which is something I usually like, but I don’t think it made my lashes look neither super fat, nor super long. At its first use, I didn’t see any noticeable different, but after getting the hang of it I made it work better. Still I expected something better from a product with such statements. I find that it gives you a quite natural look, and you definitely need 2 (or even more) coats to get a good and noticeable result. I’m not a huge fan of “layering” when it comes to mascara, but if it’s something you like, don’t hesitate to try it out.
I’ve been trying the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real mascara, for quite a while now, and I can certainly say that I like it, but not exactly love it. It does give my lashes some necessary length, but not so much of a volume. The one I have is a limit edition, that’s why it has a different cup, but it’s the same product, as they one you know. It’s definitely buildable, and it looks much better after two coats on, but I don’t really like layering my mascara, and I find this one extremely difficult to remove, even with micellare water that removes even waterproof makeup. It’s definitely not bad, but I think I’ve tried better, and I won’t be re-purchasing it in the future. Have you tried it yourself? What’s your opinion about it?
This baby came in the mail about 2 months ago, and from the moment I laid my hands on it I was in love. Honestly, it’s one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. It does wonders for my lashes which are not too short, but are quite flat. It has a really nice wand (which you can see in the photo below), which does an amazing job of separating my lashes while giving them lots of length and a bit of a volume. I’m not too picky when it comes to mascaras, but I rarely use one I really like, and this is one I love and highly recommend. Being a L’oreal mascara means that it’s quite affordable too. You can find it in other colors as well, but black is all I need.
