Smashbox Super Fan Mascara Review

Hello, hello! Welcome to A BRASH ATTITUDE!

Today I’m reviewing the Smashbox Super Fan Mascara. I got it as a free sample / gift with purchase with my last Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix online order. [info in italics taken from the Smashbox website]

Smashbox Super Fan Mascara

This lengthening mascara gives you modern, fanned-out volume. Get 12-hour length, lift and volume without any heaviness or clumping.


• Buildable lift, length and volume that lasts for 12 hours
• 360° Precision double-bristle brush loads product from root-to tip, while the soft comb reaches, styles & reveals lashes you never knew you had
• Super-black formula keeps lashes looking fuller and thicker without any clumping, smudging, flaking or heaviness
• Cruelty-free

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that I am admittedly mega picky about mascara. I have long, super stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. I always use a lash curler before applying mascara. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water-resistant (ideally waterproof).

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Super Fan Mascara measure up?

1. waterproof / water resistant – +3/4 This is not a waterproof formulation, but it did mostly withstand my watery eyes, so it is somewhat water resistant.

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Super mega black!

5. volumizing +1/2 Fairly good volume, but not mega volume.

6. must hold a curl +1/2 It holds a curl for me for about four hours before my lashes start to return to their natural stick straight form.

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1

The brush is really great for getting the micro lashes at the inner and outer eye corners. Overall I would give this mascara a 5.75 out of 7! I do wish that it held a curl better. The lengthening is really nice, but my lashes are quite long naturally so it isn’t a must have for me. This isn’t a holy grail for me, but it is quite good. If you don’t have stick straight lashes, this might be perfect for you!

Have you tried this mascara, did you like it?

Thanks for reading, have a beautiful day!

Disclosure: This was a free sample / gift with purchase.

  1. I love your mascara rating system, it means whatever you test products are ranked the same 🙂 this one sounds good, glad it works well for you! Silly question but do you have an tips for curling lashing using an eyelash curler? I won one in Stashy’s giveaway a few years ago and I STILL haven’t used it as I’m petrified of chopping off my lashes 😛

  2. Nice to hear it gave length but I am same as you I already have long lashes but would love more of a curl! Have you tried the Maybelline false lash lift? This gives me some “lift” and “curl”. Great blog and honest reviews – you found yourself a new follower 🙂
