What is it?

Smashbox's best-selling mascara for glossy volume and lift.

Why it's unique:

Inspired by the on-set technique of layering a lengthening fiber mascara over a volumizing formula, our studio-tested mascara exposes your longest, fullest lashes. No clumps, no flakes. Just maximum-impact, scene-stealing lashes.

Bragging rights:

  • 104% increase in lash volume
  • 32% increase in lash length
  • 34 degree increase in lash curl
Starting at the base of lashes, sweep mascara up and out. Apply a second coat for added fullness and length.

    Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

    I received a sample size thru my ipsy subscription and knew that this was THE ONE. After years of trying drug and department store products I've finally found my match. The brush separates and keeps the natural look while defining lashes.

    Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

    I forgot to add to my previous comment...
    This mascara is beautiful but the brush head is like huge, and you have to get used to using it without getting mascara all over your eyelids/under eyes. Other than that the formula is really nice. I still give this a 5 star rating.

    Beautiful Formula

    By Kay

    from LA

    Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

    This formula is very soft and thickens and lengthens the lashes in a flawless way, almost making them look like you're not wearing mascara (as in it makes them thicker and longer, but as if that's how your lashes really are). I find this formula similar to Urban Decay's Perversion mascara. Both beautiful soft formulas that can be layered without clumping or flaking. Once this mascara is applied in the number of coats you want, it seems to dry quickly without leaving mascara on your eyelids or under your eyes and it won't flake or smudge all day. I love this mascara!

      Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

      The formula of this mascara is great. However, the reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the wand. It's too big! I've accidentally poked myself in the eye with it several times. Other than that this mascara is good.

        Doesn't flake. No fibers. A big brush. Lasts forever. I use it day and night. The more you apply the thicker and fuller lashes look

          Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

          I really liked this brush! It really worked wel to add lots of volume to my lashes, but it didn't add much definition. I also thought my lashes looked "spikey" at the ends instead of more natural. Overall the formula was great and stayed in place all day, but I was looking for a bolder look.

            It looks beautiful at first application, but within a couple hours it smudges to my undereyes. It doesn't matter if I'm wearing nothing, just concealer, or concealer with a setting powder under my eyes. It would be great if you were just taking pictures for instagram, but it's useless for daily wear.

                  Do this impaticular product work on long straight lashes. My lashes are long and it's very hard for me to find a mascara that really lengthens my lashes.
