Is it my imagination, or does there seem to be a lot of new mascaras? Or has there always been a lot of new mascaras? It just seems like every week there’s a new one being hailed as the ‘One Mascara To Rule Them All”! I guess it’s because companies know that we’re always looking for a better mascara, so they keep making new ones for us to try! And I’m ALL for it. I love new mascaras!
Make Up Forever is different though. They have Smoky Lash and Aqua Smoky Lash, and both of those are AMAZING. So, you gotta know when they come out with a new mascara, it has to be just as good, right?
Meet Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara
Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara was created for performers on stage, but of course they’re not the only ones who want ultra-black lashes visible from a distance, yet even looks good up-close! Danny Sanz, the creator and Artistic Director of MUFE paired the blackest of natural mineral pigments made of micronized iron oxide with a wax complex and Abyssinian Oil, plus a unique Bio-Extender that strengthens hair fibers and helps extend the end of the lash. The result is a mascara that glides on, is smudge-proof, has intense black pigment, yet is safe for sensitive eyes and contact wearers and is easily removed.
The brush is a cone shape – which happens to be my favourite mascara brush shape actually.
Cone-shaped brushes allow every lash to get coated with mascara from root to tip. The fine tip allows you to get to the smallest of lashes at the inner eye, yet the full base gives volume and length and curl. This is the biggest conical wand I’ve seen though! It’s not tiny at all, and I do find that mascara tends to glob on the tip a bit, so this is a wand you need to wipe on a kleenex before going to your eye-especially that tip-otherwise you’ll get these big, fat mascara coated inner lashes which look rather hilarious! So learn from my mistakes and don’t do that!
Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara is wetter, and a bit thinner than MUFE Smoky Lash, so it’s really buildable which I love. You can keep piling it on to get the intensity you want.
I find it a tad clumpy, although like I said I tend to keep layering and layering mascara on like my life depends on it. Honestly, after a couple of layers you’re really good to go with this mascara. You don’t need to keep building like I tend to do. It’s a habit, and it’s hard to break ok? Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant is helping me do that!
But is it visible from a distance? Does MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara look just as good from far away as it does close up?
I say YES. I love Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara! It’s definitely ballerina teacher material haha! I even wore it exercising today, and it stayed put! No smudging, no flaking at all.
