MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Dramatic Impact & Graphic Precision Mascara

Hi ladies! After falling in love with PUPA Vamp! and Marcelle Xtension Plus, I knew it would be hard to find a new mascara that could compare to them, but I decided to give MUFE's newest mascara, Smoky Extravagant, a try. I must admit it was not love at first sight but after a few months of constant uses, I grew to actually like it a lot!

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.

What do you think of my pj's? ;)

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.

  1. Hi Gaby! I hope your New Year is off to a fantastic start :)
    Great review on the MUFE mascara. I can't use mascara's that are too runny because then my lashes cannot hold a curl. I guess after a few weeks like you said, it will dry up and the consistency won't be so runny....personally I think for $28 it shouldn't be runny to begin with. Oh and I love your PJ's! They look so comfy!

  2. J'aime bien la forme de la brosse. Et il a l'air super noir!

  3. You look gorgeous as usual, but I try this mascara and I'm not sure I like it. But on you it's not so bad ! It's really hard to find the right mascara, I'm always searching ;-)
