THE VERDICT:

Just in case ya' didn't know, Make Up For Ever has pretty good mascaras and their Smoky Lash Mascara is one of my go-to premium lash enhancers aside from Lancome Hypnose. One of MUFE's mascaras that I'm testing out recently is Aqua Smoky Extravagant.

MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA SMOKY EXTRAVAGANT MASCARA IN BLACK IN DETAIL

Aqua Smoky Extravagant is from the new Aqua Collection which features an array of waterproof make -up products. This mascara contains Absynnian Oil and Iron Oxides for intense coverage, Red Seaweed extract that conditions lashes, and Thermoplastic and Resins that claim to improve its hold against water. 

This product features a spade- shaped wand that follows the pattern of the eyes, thereby catching all lashes. The wand has two sides: for volumizing and for lengthening, but I find that it delivers more length than volume as the bristles have pretty wide spaces in between them, plus the wand is a little huge for my eyes. The tapered tip is for you to coat your inner lashes, but I find that the mascara gunk clumps on it, thus it delivers a clumpy coverage as well.

As for the consistency, it's light and clings onto my lashes easily, but I find it a tad bit wet and runny that I sometimes get mascara smudges on my upper lids.

TIP: To prevent a clumpy coverage, apply the mascara in light, feathery strokes. To prevent smearing on the upper lids, keep your eyes down for a minute or two to allow the product to settle and dry up.

So how does this mascara fares? Click READ MORE and find out.

The formula, indeed, delivers an intense, jet- black hue that it deepens and enhances each strand effectively and in just one swipe. I like applying the product on the base of my lashes for a deep set eyes effect. Regarding wear time, it stays intact without smudging, smearing, and flaking: I got soaked in the rain one time with this mascara on and it did not budge at all, although it smeared for a little bit when I wore it to a workout sesh. Water and sweat are two different elements so maybe that could have affected the staying power of this product. By the way, this product comes off effortlessly with a make-up remover.

Considering the overall quality and performance of this product, I think this will fare best on ladies who have short yet thick lashes, girls who don't have oily lids, or girls who have thin lash strands and are in need of color definition. Still a Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara fan here! :D

6 Lovely Thoughts

  1. The brand who introduced me to makeup world... MUFE. I have few of their makeups and none of it failed my expectation. It is worth investing on products that doesn't only deliver quality but also leaves satisfaction to their customers.

  2. I have thin and short lashes and I think this is the key to achieve those thick and long lashes. I am always insecure to girls who have long lashes. I will def save up for this. :D

  3. I haven't tried a spade-shape wand before, I think it's really effective for coating lashes esp. The inner corner of the eyes.
