How it feels/smells/looks

Sleek red packaging with minimal text is the first tick of approval here. Something about it just looks professional. The brush itself is a soft comb that glides along without hitting any snags, regardless of how many layers you’re applying.

Why I like it

The 360-degree, double-bristle brush is a clear highlight, coating your lashes from root to tip, even managing to catch those pesky ones in the corners of your eyes. Smashbox promises no clumping, smudging, flaking or heaviness with this mascara, and stays true to its word throughout repeated uses. The super black formula provides volume and length with minimal effort, elongating lashes to align perfectly with the expectations that come with a product dubbed ‘Superfan’.

Areas for improvement

You might find this a bit much if you’re after a more subdued look.
