Bat A Lash | Smashbox Cosmetics Mascara Showdown | Full Exposure, X-Rated, Indecent Exposure & Photo Finish Primer Review & Comparisons | labellesirene.ca

Hey Beauties! 

A set of fully, flirty lashes can work wonders for any look. From a full face of glam to a quick 5 minute routine, a couple quick coats of mascara can make you look wide awake and completely put together. It is one of just a few products that I cannot possibly go without, even on my no makeup days. 

I recently had the opportunity to play around with the incredible range of mascaras offered by Smashbox Cosmetics and I just couldn't wait to share them with you! Let's breakdown 4 of their best selling mascaras (and primers) so you can find out which one will be perfect for you!

Bat A Lash | Smashbox Cosmetics Mascara Showdown | Full Exposure, X-Rated, Indecent Exposure & Photo Finish Primer Review & Comparisons | labellesirene.ca

Full Exposure Mascara - $28 CAD (0.38 oz) 

Inspired by Smashbox's on-set technique of layering a fibre mascara over a volumizing mascara for the biggest, longest lashes possible. This volumizing and lengthening mascara delivers a 104% increase in lash volume for scene-stealing lashes at every angle without any smudging, clumping or flaking. It has a thick bristle brush and a lash-loving formula that contains olive oil (to keep lashes soft) and a combination of synthetic and natural waxes to create softer, more flexible coverage that keeps lashes from becoming brittle. 

Result = big, bold lashes with unbeatable volume

X-Rated Mascara - $28 CAD (0.30 oz)

An ultra-buildable mascara that can go from an everyday lash look to over the top volume in just a few layers, it is completely customizable and can be used in a multitude of ways. The Triple Threat Brush is designed with 3 rows of bristles to hold the perfect amount of the ultra-black formula. The bristles work to isolate and extend lashes while adding volume and lift with each layer.

 With each swipe of the brush, lashes are separated, magnified and coated with an interlocking fibre loaded formula that never flakes or smudges. To make the most of the brush, roll it up and out and you work from base to tip. 

Result = naturally defined to thick, voluminous lashes

Indecent Exposure - $28 CAD (0.30 oz)

A mascara that lets you achieve perfectly defined, sky high lashes. The slim Zoom Out Brush features a spiral of wavy cut bristles and a micro tip that makes it a breeze to capture every last lash. It's formulated with innovative, high-impact wavelength fibres that adhere to each individual lash and stretch as you apply the formula from length to tip.  It continues to add length with every additional stroke. The brush is the perfect size and shape to coat those hard-to-reach lower lashes and tricky lashes in the corners of your eyes. 

Result = long, lavish lashes

Photo Finish Lash Primer - $28 CAD (0.30 oz)

A 10 in 1 mascara primer for amped up lashes. It was perfected by Smashbox makeup artists on photoshoots to help condition and lift lashes before mascara application. Formulated to boost lashes and make mascara last longer while preventing flaking or smudging. It features a dual sided Two-Timer brush with an ultra-thin comb on one side for clean, clump free separation and molded bristles on the other that coat and cover each lash. 

Result = bolder, more exaggerated lashes that amps up each mascara

Which Smashbox Cosmetics mascara is going to help you fulfil your lash dreams?

  33. I don't wear mascara so I guess I'm not up to date on what it costs but $28 seems like quite a bit. I'd love to see what it looks like on.

  38. I don't really wear mascara often, just eyeliner and some lipstick! But I think that Smashbox is an awesome brand so there's no doubt that these mascaras are reliable, depending on what you need.

  40. Love Smashbox products but I have never tried their mascara. I'm very picky with mascaras because I tend to get racoon eyes at the end of the night lol! So the primer is definitely something I would need to check out.

  49. I have a love/hate relationship with mascara; I love it, but it never seems to stay - or it stays too well. I think I might have found a product to solve my mascara removing woes, though. We shall see.
    Lovely review!

  54. I cannot really relate much about this kind of cosmetic products but my sister have a bunch of those in her room... I wonder what does mascara actually do? does it make the eyes look bigger? or it give eyes shape?

  57. These mascaras are amazing! Longer lashes can totally change your whole look. I can agree with you, even it it's no makeup day, my mascara is on my lashes!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lash primers make such a big difference, especially to lashes that aren't great in the first place (like mine!). Smashbox isn't too available in the UK but I'm gonna hunt down a store and try some :P

  62. You give difficult choices now...hehehe! They're all sound fabulous, but at the end my favourite one is X-Rated mascara. I like mascara that give from everyday lash look to over the top volume, and like you said this can be achieved in just a few layers.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Sounds like a great range of mascara. I didn't hear about this brand before but maybe that's because i don't live in Canada.

  64. I'm in need a replacement mascara and I think I might try Full Exposure although.... I do REALLY miss my eyelash extensions and haven been thinking about getting them again.
