There's a lot to love about Charlotte Tilbury's Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara, including its ability to build thickness without clumping, how soft it leaves lashes, and its easy removal at the end of the night. So what's the downfall? Its propensity to smudge under certain conditions. Nevertheless, if you don't typically have an issue with mascara smudging don't count yourself out just yet—you may be able to reap the dramatic volumizng benefits of this fragrance-free mascara without issue.
Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara comes in one Glossy Black shade and features a traditional soft bristle brush with a slightly tapered tip. As mentioned above, one of the most notable attributes of the formula is how soft it leaves lashes—so much so, that you can easily reapply this mascara throughout the day without it flaking, feeling crunchy, looking spidery or getting stuck in lashes. In fact, allowing the formula to dry in between coats is one of the better ways to build thickness with this mascara, and amazingly it continues to define rather than clump lashes together. That's a rare and impressive quality for a mascara! You also get a bit of lengthening, but really, it's all about the volume building as the Full Fat Lashes name implies.
We also found it very convenient that Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara washes off easier than most, but as a tradeoff, the pliable formula tends to smudge more easily. Those who use emollient products around the eye area during the day or are prone to lashes that brush against skin, be forewarned that this mascara may cause a case of raccoon eyes.
In the end, if defined lashes with dramatically buildable thickness are what you're after, and you aren't prone to smudging mascara, Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara is a phenomenal, flake-free option try. The only other drawback is if you need a mascara that can hold curl well—this soft-hold formula won't do that, but otherwise you can count on flutter-worthy, beautiful lashes.
- Beautifully builds thickness without clumping.
- Leaves lashes soft so you can reapply throughout the day without flaking.

- Those prone to mascara smudging are more likely to experience that with this formula.
