Hmmm… I’m not sure what Make Up For Ever was going for when they released the new Extravagant Mascara.
This mascara promises a whole host of things, like precision, lengthening, and volume… and well… 1 out of 3 ain’t bad.
Actually, it kind of is (bad).
The folks at Make Up For Ever must have figured that adding a cool new shape to the container and a very interesting looking wand would make us forget that this mascara is anything BUT extravagant. It’s actually kind of a pain in the butt to use.
I’ve found that this mascara works best when you take as much product off the wand as possible. If you leave that product on… your lashes come out heavy and gross and stuck together. I don’t know WHAT they were thinking. Really.
When you take nearly all of the product off of the wand, you end up with a good lengthening mascara (much like Volume de Chanel). But it’s such a hassle to do all of that, that you’re really just better off getting the Chanel mascara and leaving this one at the store. It’s $6 extra, with none of the labor. Sounds like a fair trade to me.
Sorry Make Up For Ever. You should have stuck with Smoky Lash.
