I’ve been holding off on reviewing this mascara for a while because I didn’t want to be unnecessarily negative about a product and also because I thought maybe (like most things) I was exaggerating!
But after my mum borrowed the mascara from my room this morning and screamed at how much her eyes were burning I knew it was time to put this out there so that anyone thinking about purchasing knows what to expect if they proceed to take the risk.
Priced at around £20 the Smashbox X-Rated mascara isn’t cheap at all. I was encouraged to buy it after watching MakeupShayla on snapchat use it on a number of occasions. I like the effect the mascara had on eyelashes and I envisaged it becoming my go to mascara for a night out.
Well it has become my go to mascara for nights out but I have to be very cautious when applying it because it has the potential to completely ruin my makeup and leave me with panda eyes. If this mascara touches any area of your eye that isn’t your eyelash the burn is unreal, and you should be ready to expect uncontrollable tears which will be sure to completely ruin your eyeshadow and contour situation.
What I really want to know is whether this is a universal experience for everyone who has purchased the mascara, or do people in my family have sensitive eyes? Or did I just happen to get a bad batch?
