Very honestly, I was initially very disappointed with Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara ($28 CAN). It gave length, volume but also a tonne of clumps. Nothing crazy, but still enough to kill the volume and length provided by it in the first place. But I decided to patiently give this mascara a few more chances and boy, was I glad I did. Turns out its just one of those mascaras which get better with time. Less clump and more form in lashes. Also, you have to be mindful of the motion you apply this mascara with – light, constant motions of the wands, if it makes sense. After the initial hiccups the mascara turns out so beautiful – gives extreme length, volume and holds up the curl wonderfully – all without the clumps. If you don’t mind some clumping initially (I’d say a week-ful of use, at least) – I’d recommend this mascara because it gives the most gorgeous, dramatic lashes after. Have a look after the jump for yourself!
