Make Up For Ever Review: Smoky Extravagant mascara

Monday, March 9, 2015

I am a big lover of drugstore mascara, but over the past year I've been branching out to more high end mascaras. Why? I have extremely long lashes given to me by my mexican parents lol. And since I never use falsies, I have to rely on a really good mascara to dress up my lashes. Over the last 4 months, I've been using a few mascaras, one of which is Make Up For Ever's Smoky Extravagant. Let me start out by saying this…I believe the magic of a good mascara lies at least 85% in the wand. And because I have really long lashes, mascaras with plastic or comb applicators are a hassle and don't work with me. The only mascaras that have managed to give me big voluminous fluffy almost falsie like lashes were those with a big spiral brush. The Smoky Extravagant mascara by Make Up For Ever comes with exactly the type of brush my long lashes needed. At first, I wasn't too fond with the pointed tip, but eventually fell in love with it. The pointed end helps with precision and getting mascara on the very inner and outer corner lashes as well as the bottom lashes. It also helped me achieve more of a cat-eye like affect with my lashes.

Brushes are super important to me, but the formula does matter too! I never had any fallout from this mascara, but I wasn't a really big fan of their formula. I felt like it never completely dried. It always felt like it was still wet, which I did not like at all. Would I repurchase this mascara again for $24? Maybe, but there's a whole world of different mascaras out there and I'm looking for my soul mate <3 Hahahah Anyone else try this one? Have a favorite to share? Leave a comment below!

Until next time,
good vibes and good wine!
