Question: Can I get a what-what from all my girls who love dramatic eyelashes??
Until today, *no other* mascara came close to my beloved Chanel Exceptionnel ($30) for delivering the super thick and long, ultra-defined drag queen lashes that I crave.
Today, everything changed.
Make Up For Ever’s Smoky Lash mascara ($22) stole Exceptionnel’s spot to become my new number one. It similarly thickens, lengthens and separates lashes — and for eight dollars less, holla!
Hella nekkid, wimpy lashes… Damn you, Mother Nature!
Most thickening mascaras will clump into little mascara globules, but not Smoky Lash. It applies smoothly, even after multiple layers, almost like it’s seducing my lashes. It’s the James Bond of mascaras — smooth but deadly hot.
Not only does it make my lashes look exceptionally dark, thick and long, but I think they even look more defined with better separation.
After one coat of Smoky Lash, YES!
As far as durability, Smoky Lash stays put for a good 12 hours at least, barely smudging or flaking at all.
And she holds the curl all day long, too. A good curl looks lifted and strong and *really helps* me look alert when I’m tired (hello, insomnia!).
More Details on Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash…
- Volume and length: Small nylon fibers act like long, thin threads that envelop and adhere to each lash, depositing the precise amount of product in all the right places to add great volume and length.
- The brush: The bristles on the Smoky Lash brush are made from a new firm but flexible synthetic material called thermoplastic elastomer fiber.
- Smoky: Make Up For Ever Creator and Artist Director Dany Sanz wanted to create the smokiest, blackest mascara formula imaginable using the darkest pigments she could find.
After two coats of Smoky Lash, YES, YES, YES!

I sure hope Make Up For Ever rolls it out in more colors (*fingers crossed*).
