URBAN DECAY MASCARA FOR LONGER, LUSHER LASHES

American beauty label Urban Decay has created a new mascara that it says will last through a sauna session as well as snowboarding.

The Troublemaker Mascara (above) contains a combination of polymers that the label says helps it adhere to lashes without flaking, smearing or smudging. The mascara also has two types of black pigment, giving it a dark and intense black colour.

The formula contains hollow silica and ultralight fibres, which the label says will volumise lashes without weighing them down. The long-lasting formula also helps to visibly lengthen lashes.

The custom mascara brush also has small hooks, which help to fan out lashes as they coat them, separating and curling each lash.

The Troublemaker Mascara ($38) will be available at all Urban Decay counters from Oct 26.
