A Little Mix Up in Paris: Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara Review

I know I only posted about another mascara I love a few days ago, but in true mascara addict fashion, I have another favourite to share! Whilst I was in Paris, before Christmas, I popped into the ever so tempting Sephora along the Champs Elysees and had a browse of the Makeup Forever stand. I’ve had the Makeup Forever Smoky Lash mascara at the top of my beauty wishlist since forever and so I had the intent of buying it. However in the midst of the hectic Sephora store I managed to pick up the Smoky Extravagant mascara instead. I am a mascara junkie though,so I got over the mix up pretty quick,especially after I started to use it.

The smoky extravagant mascaras is a precision mascara that adds volume, length, and curl whilst delivering long-lasting wear with no clumping in one stroke. Using 4D technology, an exclusive microdefining wax complex envelopes the lash surface in ultrablack pigments for far-away impact and up-close precision. 

The wand itself has a tapered cone-shaped brush with a precision tip that separates lashes whilst the rounded base creates extravagant volume from any distance. These sort of wands are for me as I find them handy for getting to those inner corner and outer corner lashes perfectly!

Whilst this isn’t the smoky lash mascara I intended on picking up, this smoky extravagant mascara is pretty good! I do luckily have fairly long, thick and black eyelashes naturally, but I am a big fan of big, bold and fake looking lashes and that is exactly what this mascara does! I find it doesn’t smudge and dries fairly quickly,whilst building up nicely to the volume I like to achieve. 

Have any of you tried the original smoky lash mascara, what did you think? Have you tried this version? What is your HG mascara?
