MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you want to have with you? I’m the gal who’d want one of her things to be a reliable tube o’ mascara.


Yes, it’s true. It’s because I’m addicted to mascara. Even when I find one I like, I can’t stay with it for long. I still have to try the next new one that comes along cuz….well, just cuz!!!

It’s what lead me to my recent purchase of Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Aqua Smoky Lash waterproof mascara ($22) in Extra Black.

I love the MUFE Aqua Eyes and Aqua Creams, so I figured Aqua Smoky Lash had to be great too, right?

See for yourself: 🙂

As a side note, I did curl my lashes beforehand. Not only doesn’t Smoky Lash flake on me, it holds the curl all day long and gives me the kind of lashes that might even get me out of a traffic ticket. Not that I’ve ever tried that…

Now THIS is the kind of mascara I could take on my Giligan’s Island trip. My rating for Aqua Smoky Lash: A+

What do you think? Have you tried Aqua Smoky Lash, and what are some of your fave MUFE products?

    I’m so happy to see a post on this! I’ve really been wanting to try it but I’ve been debating whether or not it’s worth the money. I ALWAYS wear waterproof mascara, like every day because its the only way my lackluster lashes will hold a curl.

    I was wondering how well this mascara comes off? I have the MUFE waterproof eye makeup remover but I still have trouble since I wear a million coats.

    EVERYONE should own the MUFE Aqua Eyes Pencil in 23L, its a metallic nudey pink that I use on the inner corners and under my lower lash line to fake sleep 🙂 It lasts all day and is beautiful, is anyone else a fan?

    • Amy says:

      Brittany- I wonder if the Eye Pencil 23 L is similar to the MAC Champale eye kohl I Get No Kick? It’s sold out and the bid on ebay was up to $26 the last I checked- no way. Is it more pink more neutral?

  14. Wendy says:

    This sounds like a great mascara I’m currently trying loreal beauty tubes mascara (the one in the red and white tube) It’s awesome it does’t flake and doesn’t run.
    This seems like my next mascara.

  15. Jessica says:

    I love Smoky Lash, but I find the Aqua Smoky Lash soooooooo difficult to get off at the end of the day. I wish I could rave about it, but I am sticking with the original Smoky Lash.

  16. VeryCherie says:

    Perfect in time for my vacation in two weeks!!! THANK YOU!!!!

  17. Barbara says:

    Nice guest post. I envy you because your before post looks like my lashes with 2 coats of mascara!! Will try this because I am always looking for a great waterproof mascara!!

  18. BeckBeck says:

    See, I was SO mad when I tried this because it smudged terribly on me (and I did get the waterproof!) I think it’s just not meant to be.

  19. Jen in VA says:

    Cool post, I’ll have to try that out!!

  20. Grace says:

    I have been wanting to try this out, but I just cant justify spending soo much on a mascara!

    To answer your question about my favorite MUFE product, it would haveto be the HD Microblush creme in #5, it is the perfect pink!!

    “Yes, it’s true. It’s because I’m addicted to mascara. Even when I find one I like, I can’t stay with it for long. I still have to try the next new one that comes along cuz….well, just cuz!!!”

    Haha, that is so me XD although I’ve slowed down a bit because all the mascaras that I’ve been impulse-buying lately are kind of disappointing. My favorites are L’Oreal Voluminous, for CRAZY volume, and Rimmel Lash Accelerator, for tons of length/a feathery look, and while it didn’t really make my lashes grow longer/fuller, it accelerates the growth of broken lashes and keeps my lashes from falling out so crazily like they did before. 😀

  23. Alice says:

    It clumped soooo badly on me! And it flaked just the tiniest bit, but that wasn’t really an issue… The clumping was the worst I’ve ever experienced though… 🙁

  24. Leah says:

    This stuff holds curl like a champ. My tube is all dried up and I’ve been debating on if I’ll get another or not…

  25. Melanie says:

    Want to try now, thanks for the review!

  26. Marwa says:

    Wow…looks really nice! Can you show us what the brush looks like?

  27. Alice says:

    Wow! Your lashes look amazing!
    Does this mascara smudge after a dip in the pool?
