I bought this mascara in the "BEST OF MAKEUPFOREVER" set I posted about and I've been trying this out for about 2 months now and I'm gonna have to say I totally love this! ^_^ I normally don't curl my eyelashes on a daily basis because I don't have time. This mascara really curls and holds it all day for me :)
***MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara
What it is:
A mascara that gives the lashes curl, volume, length, and intense pigment.
What it does:
This ultra-pigmented mascara was specially designed to give the lashes an exceptional volume-enhancing effect with infinite lengthening and immediate curling.
What else you need to know:
The tough, dense brush of this Sephora-exclusive mascara penetrates into the roots of the lash to ensure that lash is completely coated with mascara.
Where to buy: Sephora stores and online
I think the thick, tough wand has a lot to do with the way this mascara performs. The hardness on the wand really helps PULL your lashes up and curls them. The abundant amount of bristles really help to give you volume!
Close-up of the tip:
I test it out with a primer and without a primer as usual with my mascara reviews. Here's the results without a primer.
Here are the results using the Urban Decay Eyelash Primer Potion:
- Curls lashes & holds all day
- Doesn't need a lash curler to curl
- Super DARK pigmentation
- Sturdy wand, doesn't feel like it'll break on me
- Also comes in a waterproof version (aqua smoky lash)
- Lashes doesn't feel crispy, but doesn't feel wet. A good balance when it dries!
- After a couple months old, expect a tiny bit of flaking throughout the day
- Pricey for something that needs to be replaced every 3 months
- Only available in one color (black)
- Wand is hard to get in the inner corners for the baby lashes
- Has a bit of mascara buildup on the tip
In other news, I spent 45 minutes on a single question in lab on Monday.. ZOMG! It was such a stupid question, it should've only been done in like 5 minutes max! Gosh, chemistry this semester is kicking my ass :( I hope I get through it T_T Oh, and I think why it took us so long was because NONE of us ate anything yet and we were just getting more and more exhausted as we were working through it.. I will definitely bring some fruit next week just for that extra boost :) I literally am in school on Mondays from 9am-5pm for the past two weeks and didn't get to eat lunch.. *sigh*
So I'm sorry I have been somewhat MIA, I mean I am still posting, but it takes me a while to jump onto your blogs.. LOL :X
So far, I am currently at an A in history, chemistry lab, art, and the microcomputer class. There hasn't been anything due in government yet, which makes me have a feeling that there's going to be a quiz on wednesday or friday. I also know for a fact as of today that I am going to have another quiz in history so I will be studying for that tonight, haha! :)
And my budget buying.. GAHH, I think I'm gonna shoot myself! o_O I might end up post-poning this :X SORRY LINDA! hahaha, but I'm still unsure what I'm officially gonna do, but so far I haven't bought anything yet. But that might change the next day x(
Well, until next time! I promise it'll be soon :) I have tons of reviews to post up.. LOL
