Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara

By Hollysbeautybox @hollysbeautybox
Mascara is the one thing I cannot leave the house without applying. I wear glasses 90% of the time (#badvisionproblems) and so feel as though my eyes disappear into tiny wee white dots without a couple of decent coatings of mascara. Ontop of that, my eyelids are oily and so I love a good waterproof mascara that will keep me looking less like a panda and more like Bambi. Enter Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara.
Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara I was a bit hesitant when this came popping on through my mailbox. At first glance, I thought 'hmm aqua packaging, this is definitely a coloured mascara' and we all know that's not my thang. I was happily surprised to see that it was black and 'ULTRA WATERPROOF'.
Normally waterproof mascara's don't pack the same punch on my eyelashes as regular ones so I didn't have high expectations in terms of volume and lengthening.

I used this before a day of shopping with my friends and I was pretty happy with how well it performed in terms of volumizing etc. I like thick long lashes (like most girls!) and two coats of this had me pretty impressed.
In terms of how waterproof this is, I decided to put it to the test:
- Day of shopping - 
- Cry Laughing -
- Spraying Finishing Mist -
- Hormonal PMT sweating (lovely ha!) -
- Gym session -
- Light shower -
- Eyebrow Threading (holding down the lid would normally give me panda eyes) -
- Splashing face with water -
- Watching 'The Notebook' (cry fest!) -
- Micellar Water -
- Submerging my head in water - X
- Oil based makeup remover - X
So the only thing that took off the mascara was an oil based makeup remover. I normally use coconut oil to remove my eye makeup but even that didn't take off everything. I submerged my head in water as part of the test and I noticed a teeny tiny bit of transfer just below my bottom lashes.

This is officially my favorite mascara. I mean, the Too Faced better than sex mascara is the best at volumizing, but the Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra waterproof Mascara knocks bells off of the too faced waterproof version.

Let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more posts where I put products to the test!
