GIFT WITH PURCHASE

FREE deluxe sample Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick with any $35 Smashbox purchase (offer valid 8/6/17-8/26/17 or while supplies last)

FREE deluxe Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick w/any $35 Smashbox purchase
Smashbox's Full Exposure Mascara was inspired by a technique used at Smashbox Photo Studios L.A. - layering fiber mascara over volumizing mascara for major impact. The formula contains the natural properties of olive oil to keep lashes silky soft. A combination of synthetic and natural waxes gives you softer and flexible coverage and keeps lashes from becoming brittle.

Benefits:
  • Sweeps on big, glossy lashes
  • Adds natural-looking length and volume
  • Builds thickness without clumping, flaking, smudging or spider eyes
  • Large tapered brush grabs lash at root for extra coverage
  • Creates scene-stealing lashes from every angle
  • Cruelty-free

Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, oil, fragrance and talc. Vegan friendly.
Starting at the base of lashes, sweep mascara up and out.
  • Apply a second coat for added fullness and length
  • Build mascara while the product is slightly damp
  • For best results when layering more than one coat, do not let the product dry completely

Studio tip: Flip brush and use it vertically to literally paint mascara on individual lashes.

      Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

      I received a sample of this from either Ulta or a beauty box. At first, I really wasn't a fan since it doesn't give that "wow" factor. But after a few uses, I think it's great for an every day, all natural no-makeup look. It's a very easy mascara to apply and separates the lashes beautifully. It doesn't give a ton of length or as much volume (as say, BTS or Lash Paradise), but it does look nice when I don't want to wear any makeup aside from mascara. You won't have any issues with clumping and it stays on all day. It's also easy to remove. If you're looking for a dramatic effect, this isn't the mascara for you (which one might expect from the name).

              This has to be one of my daily go-to mascaras. The brush is what makes it so perfect, it's a nice thick brush that creates definition to the lashes.

              Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

              I've used Two-faced and Tarte mascara and this one was recommended to me to try. I grabbed it to change things up and ended up returning it. It made my eyes itchy and the coverage on my lashes was minimal. Didn't see nearly as much volume as other brands. I would skip this one and grab another brand to try!

                Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

                This is my absolute favorite mascara! While I wish it wasn't so expensive, and every once in a while I decide to try out a drugstore mascara, I always come back to this one. This mascara is the best! I love the brush, and I find I can use the mascara several months longer than drugstore mascara, because it lasts much longer before drying out.
