Wish it was waterproof
Sampled

This is a very cute mascara and the wand is great for avoiding clumps and getting long lashes but it's not waterproof so by the end of the day I have rings around my eyes. I just don't bother buying non-waterproof mascara because it just doesn't last well and I always end up with it all over my face. If it was waterproof, I would buy it.

Totally ineffective
Sampled

I was SO excited when I saw the MASSIVE brush on this but it totally failed. It didn't lengthen or add volume or even make my almost blonde lashes look any darker. It just kind of flopped.

HATE!!!!!!!!!
Sampled

My eyes are sensitive with any type of mascara. I usually use Chanel or Lancôme, but I thought I would give Smashbox a try. It was Horrible!!! my eyes stayed red and watery all day long. I couldn't wait to get home and take my eye makeup off!!!

Mascara is Not for Me
Sampled

Nothing against smashbox, or its mascara, or mascara generally.. mascara just doesn't really work for my lashes.

Flaky
Sampled

I was excited to get another mascara in my BB. Mascaras are my go to product. However, I didn't think this mascara did anything special at all, no volume, curl or length whatsoever. I also noticed at the end of the day that the mascara FLAKES big chunks. Huge no-no for me.

Disappointing
Sampled

I love crazy dramatic mascaras, and after reading the description I had high hopes for this one. First of all, the brush was HUGE. Almost impossible to use huge. My lashes are fine and medium length and I could barely coat them because the brush was too big. After I did get a couple coats on, you could barely tell. They just looked tinted and not like I was even wearing mascara. Very disappointing.

I've had better

I love trying out new brands of mascara, but wasn't too impressed with this one . It didn't give me the fullness I expected or wanted. I'll stick with my Mally!

I Love Mascara!
Sampled

I am a totally hopeless mascara junkie, but unfortunately the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara doesn't make the cut for me. It does apply nicely, lengthens and gives volume, but it just is not water resistant AT ALL. I don't use waterproof mascara, but I do expect mascara to endure an occasional tear, or watery eye without running all over the place.

Not waterproof
Sampled

I have really sensitive eyes- really terrible allergies plus contact lenses requires me to wear waterproof mascara - so I was hesitant to even try my sample of this. While it does apply well and the applicator keeps lashes clump free, it's not even remotely water resistant. I think my eyes are too sensitive for these fiber lash mascaras.

Flaky mess
Sampled

I really wanted to love this mascara, since I got identical samples from Birchbox and Sephora. Unfortunately, it flakes like a drugstore mascara. Lancome is still the only mascara I will ever buy.
