Ask a Question

Build all the way to X-Rated volume! Created on set in Smashbox's L.A. photo studio to be their most buildable mascara, X-Rated puts you in charge of your lash look. Designed to load up the maximum amount of formula to build your look, Smashbox's Triple Threat brush lets you go from dramatic and defined to over-the-top, volume - layer by layer. With each swipe, lashes are isolated, magnified and mega-coated with an interlocking fiber-loaded formula that never flakes or smudges - just builds. The effect? Hyper thick, voluptuous lashes that photograph flawlessly in any close-up.

Why it's unique:

Don't even think about double dipping - Smashbox's Triple Threat brush was designed with 3 deep channels to hold the perfect amount of formula for mega-coating lashes plus 3 rows of bristles to isolate and extend lashes while Tripod fibers wrap around each lash for amplified volume. Maximize all 3 sides by rolling brush up and out as you work from base to tip of lashes, taking lashes from PG to X-Rated.

Bragging Rights:

  • Extremely long-wearing formula for luscious lashes, day to night
  • Triple Threat Brush isolates, magnifies & mega-coats each lash
  • Tripod fibers stack on lashes for endless volume
  • Amplifies & lifts with each layer
  • Flake & smudge-free
  • Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, fragrance & talc


"In the photo studio, we need to create different levels of drama without removing all the makeup and starting again. With X-Rated, I can go from a classic everyday lash look to over-the-top volume in just a few layers." - Lori Taylor Davis, Global Pro Lead Artist

    irritated eyes

    By Kelly

    from Harrisburg

    Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

    I read so many good reviews on this mascara, so my hopes were high. I love the packaging and the brush, however the formula irritated my eyes so bad. I don't have sensitive eyes, I don't wear contacts, and this mascara made my eyes water so badly. Returning to Ulta for something else.

    I really loved this product and I use it all the time. It lasted me about 3 to 3.5 months with daily use. The only problem I had with the product was that it was very difficult to remove.

      Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

      I wanted to like this mascara because it does add length and volume, however it burned my eyes. I thought the extreme burning sensation was because I wear contacts. A coworker (not a contact wearer) stated she experienced the same burning sensation. There is just something in the formula that does not work for some people.

      Favorite mascara

      By Tiffany

      from Atlanta

      Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

      I love this mascara. Highly recommend to use the primer as well with this. Great length and volume. When I want to do a little "fancy" I brush my lashes first, then curl, apply primer and this mascara and it is amazing. Also, I am not good at winged liner. I have tried and tried but just can't get it right, BUT I can tilt this applicator (vertical) on the ends of my lashes and apply a little extra and I can still get the winged look just with this mascara!

      Didn't like

      By Kell

      from United States

      Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

      I liked how the mascara came out thick on the brush, but I did not like the brush. I don't like how it's a straight brush with no curve to it. It also irritated my eyes for the first 30 minutes of wearing it.

        I apply this mascara looking down with a mirror on my vanity top. I sweep it on with gentle blinks while moving the wand slightly side to side and outward. Perfect every time.
