Enormous Brush Club Member: Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara Review

mascara2 (1)Official Mascara Correspondent Ashleigh has proclaimed Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara, $20 at Sephora, a member of the Enormous Brush Club. Does it do the job? Read on and find out.

s1315902-main-heroThere’s no better place to start than to mention that mascara is part of the Enormous Brush Club.  There is an gigantic Christmas-tree shaped brush here but it actually serves a purpose (which brushes this size rarely do.)  With one coat, my lashes are coated from root to tip, inner corner to outer corner.  The product itself has a nice grip and makes it easy to build up curl and thickness.

Because I believe more is better, I went in for coat two.  The issue here is that the mascara dries pretty quickly and I would’ve done better to apply coat two immediately after coat one.  However, even with the drying, my lashes were thick and had a nice taper.  It goes without saying that an afternoon touch-up wasn’t possible, but my lashes still look voluminous and long midday.

The formula took a little extra time at the end of the day (soap, water, eye makeup remover), but I still like the mazzie overall.  While this mascara didn’t blow my socks off, it’s a good one for your arsenal.
