    Looked for a mascara that didn't clump or smudge. Found it with Smashbox.

    Just Ok

    Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

    Overall, I'd say this mascara is pretty good. I was excited to see that the brush is big, but it is very stiff and I found it difficult to use and maneuver. I was not able to achieve "natural" looking lashes, they always seemed to look stiff to me. It stays on pretty well, but toward the end of the day I regularly find myself with black residue under my eyes. It does NOT stand up to water well, I know that its not waterproof, but it will run like a river if you tear up! It also makes your lashes look "spikey" once you've dried your eyes. It works well with the smashbox eyelash primer, I'm not sure how impressed I would have been without the primer though. At the end of the day, if I am going to pay $20 or more for a tube of mascara then I expect more than what I got from this.

      Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

      Best mascara I've found. For natural daytime use one application gives beautiful bold length and definition. However apply a second coat and it becomes very dramatic. It blends easily with false lashes also. I work in an environment where I run around a lot and frequently sweat. But I've never had it smudge. It comes off easily with remover but lasts all day and all the night without needing to reapply. I've even unintentionally worn it surfing. It came off rather quickly but avoided the smudge racoon eyes

        Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:

        I don't use mascara often due to allergies. I like that this is cheaper than 'They're Real' by Benefit and a nice, long brush to apply. It's in the middle spectrum of wet/clumpy potential to separates perfectly.

        Satisfied and will buy again due to the price and the fact the lashes look natural with it on (not too heavy)

          I love this stuff! I'm always for trying new mascaras and this mascara is one of my favorites. I will say that you should keep water away from your face at all costs, it'll smudge easily.

              Switched from using Estée Lauder to avoid trips to crowded mall during holidays for makeup. Great decision.

                  This mascara is just ok. Kinda clumps and it's difficult to get separation and even application, even though it does lengthen quite a bit. It's not particularly bad, but I wasn't wowed for the price.
