I’m pretty sure that Urban Decay’s Cannonball Mascara was a staple in Ariel’s beauty bag. In between fighting off Ursula and using seaweed and kelp to keep her long lustrous hair moisturized, she was definitely using this waterproof mascara to keep her eyelashes bat-worthy for seducing Prince Eric.
For modern day mermaids who are fighting battles of good, evil and love on land, this mascara is sweat-proof, stress-proof, and smudge-proof. I put this mascara to the test through a morning grueling Diesel Kickboxing session that was like a Billy Blanks set at DeadMau5, and none of my super-extended, feathery, separate lashes budged a millimeter. And my sooty black lashes continued to hold their curl and form like an American gymnast on the balance beam, following a humid, 20-minute afternoon wait on the L train subway platform, all the way into a late-night dinner. 16 hours later, I came home for a mascara check and found my lashes in the same exact pristine form. This formula is so strong that you actually need an eye makeup remover to get all of the pigment off, or else you wake up with major raccoon eyes if you try to lazily remove it with water, like me. This mascara is so indestructible, I’m thinking they should include it in Rio’s 2016 Olympic Village, as it’s a gold medal contender against heat, humidity, water, and time.
