The Lash Diaries: Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant mascara


Being a bit of a lash snob, I was so excited to hear that Make Up For Ever was releasing a new mascara as part of the Smoky Lash family.  I have tried the original Smoky Lash and although it wasn’t my absolute favourite mascara, I still really enjoyed it.

Just launched Smoky Extravagant, Make Up For Ever bills the mascara as lashes in 4D using “exclusive microdefining wax complex [which] envelopes the lash surface in ultra-black pigments for far-away impact and up-close precision”.  This mascara coats every lash using the raindrop-sized brush which contains 580 bristles.


The mascara also contains polymers which adhere and coats every single lash and provides maximum length, and a Bio-Extender which strengthens hair fibre and helps to extend the end of the lash.

I’ve been using this mascara for a week now and it’s not the most amazing mascara I have ever tried, but it still does make my lashes look long and dark.  I actually tried this on a friend and it made her lashes look so amazing (much better than mine did using this product.

I did receive this mascara from PR, however, I wouldn’t purchase it when it runs out.  It’s a great mascara, but it’s not that best one I have tried on my lashes.  I also find the brush to be a tad too big for my eyes; I like the shape, I just wish it was a bit smaller.


Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant mascara retails for C$28 at Sephora.

Is Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant on your wish list?

Please note, I was sent this mascara by PR.  All opinions are my honest own.
