Third to last in the Lash Stash box – Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara ($24). I thought remembered liking this more the last time I reviewed it in 2011, but then I reread the post and the title says it all: 4 More – Still Not Impressed. It’s not bad, it’s just not great.
Smoky Extravagant Mascara is a heavy, thick formula. On one hand, it weighs down your lashes and flattens out the curl. On the other hand, the thick formula gives you lots of volume and a deep black color. I really don’t like the applicator; it’s roughly the size of my whole eye. I can only use the skinny pointy end of it to apply, so I’m missing out on all the mascara at the fat, bulbous end. The mascara isn’t as steadfast as I would like. It does run a little bit. More worrisome is that when it does run, it’s really hard to wipe off.
