Smashbox Cosmetics X-Rated Mascara

Featuring Tripod fibers that stack on lashes for endless volume, this unique buildable, long-wearing formula takes lashes from classic to bold in a snap. The triple bristle brush isolates, magnifies, and saturates each lash with layers of color that never flake or smudge. The result? You can do a few swipes for a pretty day look—and a few more swipes for a luscious, fanned out, amplified effect.

So usually when I see a mascara sample I look to see if it's waterproof, which they never are, then move it along. I've used waterproof mascara for years because hey, ready for anything snow rain sleet, vacation ocean, whatever. Why would anyone use anything else?
When this sample arrived I was about to pass it along as usual, when for some strange reason I felt compelled to check it out. Maybe I've been to hard on non-waterproofs because this stuff is great!

I have light colored short lashes. I thought my current mascara was pretty good. I was wrong. X-Rated gives me those eyelashes you see on commercials but never really get when you use the product. It doesn't flake off, it doesn't run. My eyes watered due to allergies and I didn't look like a nightmare. I rubbed my eyes and it didn't come off like grease on my hands (yes this has happened, yuck).

Granted I haven't been in the rain yet but I'm feeling optimistic! So new addiction. Long beautiful lashes. So glad I didn't pass this one along.

Received in my ipsy bag...

I didn't get the sample of this product here, but wanted to share my review as there is only one other and its negative.

This product made my lashes look just like I always wanted. I have an entire drawer of mascaras, and this one is as if you've mixed W3LL People, and Their Real, no joke, it's amazing.

Yes, a little thick but only if you apply too much.

Great Everyday Mascara
Purchased

I love this mascara for everyday wear. The applicator has different length bristles that keep lashes from clumping but adds tons of length and a decent amount of volume. Washes off easily with a little makeup remover.

A great mascara

I don't wear mascara that often. I have distichiasis and prefer a more natural look, so when I do want some oomph, I'm looking for a mascara that will give me enough volume to disguise any bare patches while not getting clumpy and making me look like a clown. I also wear contact lenses, so flaking is definitely out.

This mascara works great for me, as well as Smashbox Full Exposure. Two thumbs up!

Left a lot of clumps and smudged easily. Wouldn’t buy again.

I'm not a fan of Smashbox, and I found this mascara to be difficult to use and clumped easily. It felt like the brush had too many bristles that were too long.

Odor and clumpy

Has a strange odor to it and seems a bit more clumpier than other mascaras that I've tried.

OMG. It's hard for me to find a mascara I love, and when I do find one I love, I wear it as long as possible. This X-rated mascara is INTENSE in the most awesome way. It is a daily staple, especially when I am doing heavier eye makeup for going out. Definitely recommend!

Probably my favorite mascara which I wouldn’t have thought twice about before. I use drugstore mascara I already have long eyelashes so didn’t need anything fancy but I love this mascara with a passion
