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. Vegan friendly.

"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

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

Although this mascara does add volume to your lashes, it takes FOREVER to apply and thicken. You have to continuously add layer after layer in order for it to make a difference.

Hit and Miss at Same Time

By Corinne

from Akron, OH

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

When you first use it, the look is very natural and looks great, but then you can get too much of the product in the bristles and it puts way too much on there. If you try to wipe it off, it starts oozing out of the container. It does it even if you don't wipe it off, honestly. I have never noticed a smell at all. I'm not quite sure what the other reviewers are talking about. I've bought it multiple times from multiple different stores, so it's not like I got only the "good" batch. It's very difficult to get off, so that's frustrating, but I also want to make it known that after a month or so of wearing this—I only just realized what the cause was— my eye lids started burning and peeling. Like some weird flaking was happening. And I thought it was potentially a different foundation I had tried, a different moisturizer, etc. but after removing different aspects of my daily routine it is this mascara.

It smells funky

By Jhy094

from Los Alamitos,California

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

I don't think it does a good job giving my lashes length or volume. It has a strong scent which is really weird and noticeable compared to several other brands I've tried. Buy something else!

Wouldn't buy

Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

I really wanted to love this, especially since it was on sale. It made my eye burn terribly. I've never had this happen with any other mascara. It felt similar to having sunscreen in my eyes. I had to remove it immediately.

    Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

    I was so disadisappointed by the x-rated mascara. It is so thick and so much product is on the brush you have to take 1/2 of it off or you lashes will all stick together. I wasn't happy with the brush. But I do like that it doesn't smudge or run.

      Comments about Smashbox X-Rated Mascara:

      This is my holy grail mascara and I think this one is so underrated. I find it can stay a bit tacky for the first 20 minutes or so after I apply, but after that it does dry down to a more natural texture that stays all day but is not impossible to remove with my micellar wipes. I love the look it gives my lashes...I look like I'm wearing wispy volumized false lashes. Sometimes I'll mix things up and use my Lancome Monseiur Big which has a similar effect, but I keep going back to my tried and true.

        This is literally my fav mascara! It makes my lashes wayyy longer and gives them way more volume. It definitely doesn't clump and it lasted me for like 4 months. I definitely recommend this mascara.
