Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara


In the past year, I don't recall how many times I have seen or read about Smoky Lash all over blogosphere! I knew I would have to eventually try it for myself. I just couldn't say goodbye to my Voluminous, even temporarily. I had a little hiccup recently due to the way my last tube of Voluminous performed. I have been kind of let down with it actually. About 2 months ago, I replaced my old Voluminous for a new one. Everything was cool until few weeks ago, out of the blue it started getting all clumpy and gross. Needless to say I had to chuck it. Only Smoky Lash could mend my little broken heart! And so off to Sephora I went...


Smoky Lash comes in it's own black box. I like the black packaging with white letters, it looks simple and neat.


I've been using Smoky Lash for a few weeks now and I'm really happy with it. As you can see from my photos below, it really takes lashes to another level! They may not look exactly like false lashes but I think Smoky Lash gets pretty darn close to it! It does remind me a lot of L'oreal Voluminous just that Voluminous' formula is a bit more mushy and the one I use has a curved brush. They deliver similar results though. Smoky lash has a medium-length dense brush. Short and wide bristles pack a good amount of mascara on them.  Unscented formula is neither too runny nor too thick. The only thing this mascara does not do is separating lashes. It won't make lashes totally clumpy but won't separate them one by one either. I personally don't like mascaras that give natural-looking-lash effect so it works out perfect for me! I know there are a few mascaras in the market that don't change the way your lashes look no matter how many coats you apply. I have found that with this mascara, if you apply multiple (5+) coats (like I did in my photos below) you can get quite a dramatic effect on your lashes. 2-3 coats will still give you added volume and length but I am all about drama when it comes to lashes so I apply a bit more! I also love its staying power, it lasts! I wore this mascara on NYE, when I came back home from a long night out my lashes looked exactly the same as when I put on the mascara, no flaking either!!


I'm so happy to have finally tried Smoky Lash! Based on my experience, it really does live up to all the hype it gets as it does everything it claims to do; it volumizes, lengthens and curls! The only thing that could prevent me from repurchasing it could be its $22 price tag especially when it's quite comparable to a drugstore mascara.

Have you guys tried Smoky Lash?

  3. I prefer mascaras that don't seperate every single lash too and this looks fab. One for the imats shopping list me thinks! x

  5. I've tried this mascara! It is seriously AMAZING! I bought it when I was over in the UAE. In the UK we don't have MUFE :(

    The only thing I didn't like about it was the hefty price tag & it dried out quickly. xx

  12. @ Perfectly Unordinary It's definitely worth a try ;)
    @ Holly, Thank you hunni! It's possibly Patina, haha you know how much I'm obsessed with it huh?? :) Gotta agree with you, Smoky Lash is a great high end mascara, totally lives up to the hype!
    @ Rachael, yay glad someone agrees! :)) Ooooh great idea to add it to IMATS shopping list :D
    @ Cydonian, thank you love! :)
    @ DesignerSpray, I heard a few people complain about how fast it dries, I'll be so sad if mine dries out so fast cuz I really love this mascara, I'll definitely report back if it does! I know the price is a bit too much eeek!
    @ SHELL! I'm pretty happy with it, hey if I want even more of a false lash effect then I can put on false eyelashes he he :) You guys need a Sephora in UK, can't believe no Sephoras in UK huh??
    @ Sandra, uhhh I'll die if it dries out fast, seriously! I got too attached to it, I'll cry if it leaves me in couple of months!
    @ Arezu lol you're so right! :D I think what helped me with this purchase was the fact that Voluminous pissed me off lol It's pricey but I love the results! :)
    @ Feline, worth a try for sure! ;)
    @ Anonymous, I honestly can't remember what eye shadows I used for this look, sorry couldn't help :/
    @ Miss LV, thank you! :)
