Perking up those eyelashes is a quick and easy way to open up your eyes instantly make you look more awake and finding a mascara that works for your eyelashes can be confusing to find with so many choices out these days. I pretty much need a “do it all” type of mascara because I’m lacking in the pretty eyelashes department, therefore I gave the Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara a try.
Sephora describes it: “an all-in-one mascara to lift, lengthen, volumize, and define! Rev up your lashes with this high-intensity all-in-one mascara that lifts, lengthens, volumizes, and defines! Create full, lifted, clump-free lashes with the unique flexible dual brush and comb applicator. Use the brush side to build and thicken, then follow with the comb side to define and lengthen. Naturally derived peptides and antioxidants help to protect and repair lashes, while rich pigments create the deepest black shade for an ultra-dramatic look.”
Top to Bottom:
- My natural wimpy lashes
- natural lashes after being curled
- With 1 coat of Smashbox HyperLash Mascara
- re-curled after HyperLash Mascara is dry
As you can see, the Hyperlash formula is quite heavy because it completely weighed down and un-curled my lashes with just a single coating. I had to wait for it to dry and then re-curl my lashes, and that is something I’m not a fan of because curling your lashes after applying mascara can cause breakage and it also leaves your lash curler with mascara residue. The pigmentation is dark but it isn’t the blackest mascara I’ve seen. The formula also tends to flake really easily, in the last photo you can see little clumps and flakes that have migrated under my eye. I did however like the wand, I usually try and stay away from rubber/silicone wands because I feel that they don’t do as well of a job compared to traditional wands, but this one worked quite well in applying the product due to its 2-in-1 brush and comb applicator.
Overall, out of the “lift, lengthen, volumize, define, and clump-free” claims, it definitely didn’t lift nor was it clump-free. It did slightly lengthen, volumize and define my lashes though.
If you’d like to give it a try, you can get it here for $21
