If you're a cult follower of Urban Decay's CEO, Wende Zomnir, then you've probably already seen a sneak peek of the Troublemaker mascara that she teased would be coming this fall.

Well, the wait is finally over. Cosmopolitan.com got the exclusive on the brand spankin' new, "sex-proof" mascara that promises to give you super-long and thick lashes (13.7 times the volume to be exact). It's set to launch in the States on 5th September on UrbanDecay.com, and although a UK launch date has not yet been confirmed, Urban Decay have told us it should be hitting our shores at the end of September.

So, what allows you to get hot and heavy and still have flawless-looking lashes after you've finished? Its formula has two different types of black pigments that give the mascara its dark intensity - think: 50 shades of black - a combo of hollow silica and ultralight fibers amp up each lash's volume without weighing them down, vitamin E and panthenol keep your lashes hydrated and flexible, and polymers help the formula stay on so you don't end up with black remnants under your eyes post-hookup. Plus, the brush has tiny precision hooks on the ends to grab the lashes, fanning them out to give the illusion that you have a full-on fringe, even if you don't.

OK, OK, but does it actually work? In a word, yes. Don't believe me? Three women took the challenge, swiping on the mascara, doing the deed, and then immediately taking an after pic. Here's what they thought:

Her after thoughts: You know that moment when you’ve done your makeup and you’re ready to head out looking hot AF, and bae gives you that quickie-before-we-head-out-please vibe? Next thing you know, you’re fixing the smudged mascara that’s all over your face. Enter Urban Decay’s sex-proof mascara. Thankfully now, IDGAF about hitting the bed before I hit the bar, because I don’t have to redo my makeup - it literally didn't budge!

Her after thoughts: I really liked this mascara as just a straight-up mascara, regardless of its sexual prowess. It didn't clump and gave me decently big volume. It definitely stood up to sweatier activities though. I can personally attest that it will not streak or flake even in warmer situations.

Her after thoughts: Ommmmmmmmmgggggg, this mascara really is sex-proof, it's amazing! It was still on perfectly after and there was barely anything under my eyes. LOVE.

There ya have it, your new mascara must-have that won't budge in the bedroom ... or on a hot day during brunch.
