Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant is the newest mascara from MUFE for Fall 2013. Smoky Extravagant 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.

There is not a whole lot I can say about the packaging itself, and that’s actually not a bad thing! I like the design of the tube, and the wand end is very easy to hold, which makes it very easy to apply.
The brush is cone-shaped, which is a gift and a curse because it works well on the top lashes, but it’s a bit of a struggle applying on the bottom lashes. The tip is small and precise to get those little lashes covered, but it still does not take care of the bottom lashes the way I want them to!
This mascara, like so many others pull out of the tube with the perfect amount of formula on the wand itself, but the tip has too much excess. I think with this mascara in particular it’s more important that mascara not bunch up at the end, because one of it’s features is the tip. Do you know what would happen if I didn’t clean that tip off? Pandemonium.
I actually wore this mascara to an outdoors birthday party yesterday to test it again. If you sweat and start playing around/wiping your eyes too much, it is going to smudge. I did not notice any flaking. It’s not waterproof. It is very simple to remove.
You are looking at two coats. Funny, I rarely go over two coats. If I ever decide to become a rapper, that’s gonna be my stage name, Two Coats.
Overall, I like this mascara and I think I will be reaching for it more often than not. I like the volume and curl it gave my lashes. Length was subtle, but not over dramatic and that’s fine with me.
