Review : Smashbox Bionic Mascara

I'm going to start this post by saying a big fat WOW! This is another of the items that I received from CheapSmells.com and it has amazed me.


Nothing special, just a simple mascara design. I wouldn't really except anything else from a mascara in the packaging department. Nice, clean packaging.

I love a good mascara and this one didn't let me down. I received the mascara in Jet Black which is the colour I would have chosen myself.

I am lucky enough to have long eyelashes, my issue is that they don't curl very well, and when they do it doesn't hold.

This mascara not only lengthened and thickened my eyelashes in tremendous style, but it somehow managed to curl them and make that curl stay! You may have seen my excited tweet when I first started playing with this mascara.

Left eye with mascara, right eye no mascara.

To achieve this result I did apply a lot of mascara, as I do with all my other mascaras.  As you can see it hasn't clumped and has coated most of my lashes, even the smaller ones. Despite the thickness of the wand it really is easy to work with.

Would I recommend this product?
Most definitely. This is one of the best mascaras I've tried in ages, actually probably the best mascara I have ever tried! It lengthens, curls and thickens your lashes. What more could a girl want?

My Smashbox Mascara was sent to me from Cheap Smells. Their website states that this product is usually dispatched within one working day. Their last order date to the UK in time for Christmas is 18 December 2011. Cheap Smells deliver free within the UK. You can view their other delivery options for outside the UK here.

The mascara costs £12.95 from Cheap Smells, although the RRP is £16.50. You get 7.7ml of product. This is slightly more than I would normally pay for a mascara, but I tend to buy high street products. Having seen this product in action I definitely think it is value for money at this price, I would re-purchase.
