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 and 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

Very natural looking

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

I really loved it the first few times I used it! It gives you very natural looking eyelashes. By the third of fourth time I used it though, the wand starting picking up way too much product. Trying to put it back into the pot made it worse the next time around, and there was so much I felt like I would be wasting it if I wiped it on a napkin.

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

The mascara itself is fine. The actual tube it comes in is a disaster. I purchased it for Three of us in my household and we all have had the same problem. Lots of excess on the tube and it's messy

THIS WILL BURN YOUR EYES

By .

from Chicago

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

Its a great mascara, great volume, perfect fanned out lashes. HOWEVER IT WILL BURN YOUR EYES. A very uncomfortable feeling, and when it stops burning the mascara has come off and all over your face.

      Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

      I use Too Faced Size Queen, L'Oréal Telescopic, and Smashbox X-Rated. All are excellent, but Smashbox is absolutely the best of the 3. TF Size Queen volumizes, but clumps a bit if you're not careful. Telescopis gives amazing length, but lacks volume. Smashbox X- Rated does both, only clumps insignificantly, and stays put. I curl my lashes and then use coat them with a top quality primer, before applying any mascara. This stuff if fabulous, and my favorite of all time. And to think I would not have known about if except a sample size came in my ipsy bag:)

        I have tried Perversion (Urban Decay), Better Than Sex (Benefit), plus multiple others, and this is hands-down my favorite. It layers well if you need a nighttime look, but is so great for wearing during the day.

            Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

            This mascara isn't the best I've ever tried you need to really work it to get the results you want. Lengthens for sure but doesn't add much volume! Also it has an odd odor almost clay like or plastic? Not sure but it lingers all day I know it sounds weird but it's true the first time I tried it I couldn't stop wondering what that smell was then another time I used it I could smell it coming from the bottle. It doesn't smell bad just like not pleasant or not something I'd want to smell everyday.
