All MUFE products get a lot of hype, but I was attracted to the mascara in particular by the name - smoky lash - who doesn't want smoky lashes, they sound like they'd go perfectly with a smoky eye!
They're not afraid to big this product up either -
"Smoky Lash enhances lashes, for exceptional volume, infinite length and ultimate curl. Its formula is rich in ultra-fine mineral pigments to create the perfect smoky look: saturated lashes and smoldering eyes. Its ultra wide and dense new generation brush hold a maximum amount of product for instant spectacular lashes."
Wow, sounds good!
So does it live up to all this trumpet blowing? Here's my before and after.
I like the mascara, and I'm still glad I bought it and will use it up, but there's nothing amazingly special about it. It does build length quite easily, but it's also prone to clumping, which prevents me from getting all that "exceptional volume". It is a very black mascara, which I like, but I do find it can flake a tiny bit during the day - maybe that's the 'smoky' effect?! It hasn't stopped me using it though.
Overall it's a nice mascara and I'm glad I've tried it out, but I'd have probably liked it more if my expectations hadn't been set really high by all the hype!
