Beauty Review: Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara

Before I begin with this review, I wanted to let you guys know that I’ve created an Instagram account (@sunnydays_14) to share with you a bit of my day to day, specially outfits and stuff that I’ve been into recently. I’m new at this, so bare with me haha, but hopefully you enjoy it! 

Lets begin…

If I was on a deserted island and I could only bring three beauty products (it’s a tough scenario because I would love to take everything with me haha), I would choose: a facial cream with SPF (no more freckles!), a chapstick (I have constant dry lips), and a black mascara. Ever since I got into beauty and makeup, mascaras have been my obsession. Being a girl with light brown eyelashes, without a mascara I look as if I had no eyelashes. Thus, mascaras have become an essential item of my makeup collection. 

For years, I’ve been trying out different brands, always on the look out for a mascara that makes my eyelashes look thick and long. My mom has used various products form Smashbox and she has always commented on how good their products are. Following her advice, I decided to try out their Full Exposure Mascara. I’ve been using it daily for about two years and can’t really complain about it. It has a classic wand made with natural bristles. The outer bristles are shorter than the inner ones. This wand structure helps create a light and more natural look while still making your eyelashes thicker. Also, the mascara kind of separates the eyelashes causing the illusion of having a lot of eyelashes. If applied only once, it looks natural and discrete. I like to apply two coats for thicker eyelashes that call more the attention when going out at night. It lasts all day without needing to reapply the product. I did notice that throughout the day it faded into my lower lid. I don’t know if this happened because of the mascara itself or because of me, but this situation has happened to me before using different mascaras of other brands. Finally, the product has a light consistency. Even after such long time of using it, the mascara hasn’t developed flakes or anything similar.

Hope you enjoy the review! Which mascara do you use? Have you tried this one out?
