Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

If you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider, you’ll know that one of the birthday gifts this year was a duo by MUFE – mini versions of their bestsellers, Rouge Artist in No.23 and Smoky Extravagant mascara. You’ll also know that Make Up For Ever is a brand that has completely earned bragging rights with their HD Foundation – and the fact that they also make a foundation that can be used both wet and dry is even more impressive. Anyways, I didn’t begin using the mascara I just mentioned until a few months after I had received it and it wasn’t too bad. So the other day at Sephora, I noticed they had the travel size available for 14CDN – this is amazing compared to the full size for 28CDN. It’s a good amount for a ‘travel’ size but there’s one problem…this mascara is so messy! Both the miniature size and the travel size, so at this point I’m assuming the full size is the same. Does it darken, while giving both volume and lengthen? Oh yes! Which is why someone out there just paid 28CDN for it. However, I really think you should save yourself the trouble and just purchase a drugstore mascara. I ended up returning mine. Needless to say I’m actually heartbroken at how this performed because I’m usually so impressed with Make Up For Ever’s products.

  1. I had a love-hate relationship with the sample big time. The wand is not my taste at all (I like small plastic wands) but I thought it preformed pretty well… the few times. Then I just felt like it was so much effort to get that wand around my lashes. I also experienced it weighing down my lashes and just the tips of my lashes wearing right off, so they were never as long at the end of the day. I wonder what the beauty insider gift will be next year….


    • Yeah exactly, I prefer something a bit smaller — for precision purposes. I mean it’s not too bad, but I can’t handle the mess and the wand. I really hope it’s something good, like a mini NARS blush haha or a mini curated eyeliner set or something 🙂
