Make Up For Ever gave us Smoky Extravagant during the fall, and we get Aqua Smoky Extravagant during the summer. The mascara that I have grown to know and love is now available in a waterproof formula. Aqua Smoky Extravagant, like it’s cousin advertises as a must have mascara for every woman, enveloping the lashes in black pigment; one stroke application for instant effect; precision tip for separate and accentuate lashes, and extravagant volume, just in waterproof form! Keep reading for my thoughts, review and photos.

The brush contains 580 bristles made of Tynex Fiber which combs every lash giving excellent definition and separation.
The brush is a tad different than the original formula. The conic shaped brush is a tad wider from the middle to the tip. It’s obvious that they made some improvements to the wiper because I do not get as much excess product on the brush as I did with the original formula.
The formula of the mascara is a combination of polymers and a resin that coats the lashes with a film that makes them water and oil resistant. This actually scared me a little bit because mascara has to come off some time right?
Aqua Smoky uses the same deep rich pigments as the original formula to give you darker lashes then you standard mascara. While MUFE advertises this mascara as giving volume, length, curl and precision, I could not check all these off. I saw length and precision, but nothing in the curl and volume category.
Here are before and after photos, and a photo of Aqua Smoky Extravagant Lash compared to the regular Smoky Extravagant formula.
I’m honestly surprised how great this mascara is, considering I had so much trouble with Maybelline Pumped Up waterproof mascara. I honestly lost faith in waterproof mascaras for a minute there. Thank you Make Up For Ever.
