Smoky Extravagant, a precision mascara that adds volume, length, and curl, is claimed to intensify eyes with dramatic impact that attracts attention from afar and shows precise and defined lashes up close. Its « ergo-conic » brush was thought to allow for ultra-precise, intuitive application, but I actually think it is too big and super awkward to use - it is not precise at all and it makes it really hard to properly coat those tiny lashes in the inner corners.
When I first started using this mascara, I found the formula to be way too wet for my liking - there was so much product on the brush that I had to wipe it on a tissue before each use and between each coat! Also, the mascara also took forever to dry. I was happy to see the formula improve after a few weeks though, and I was left with volumized, lengthened and defined lashes that actually held a curl all day - and I have the straightest lashes ever! - after only one coat. I like to build up to three coats with this mascara for maximum effect, but be careful because it tends to start clumping at the third coat.
I am happy to report that I did not experience any flaking at all with this mascara! I am a bit sad that it seems to dry up so quickly though.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant is available in Black for $28.00.
