Make Up Forever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Mascara Review

After hearing many rave reviews about the Makeup Forever Smoky Lash, I was determined to check it out when I went to London IMATS all the way back in June. My plan was to buy this mascara in waterproof as my lashes will not stay curled without this, the only mascara they had available that had 'Smoky' in the name, was the above, Makeup Forever Aqua Smoky Extravagant. (After searching the interwebs, I have discovered that I was being blind and the original mascara I wanted does exist!)

This was advertised as their newest mascara, and I particularly liked the shape of the wand. The mascara comes with 7ml of product, at the cost of $24.00 (£14.92), which I don't think is that unreasonable for a high end mascara. What does the company claim? 'Add volume, length, curl, and precision to lashes. This lash-defining product lays on color using an exclusive micro-defining complex that envelops the surface of lashes with ultrablack pigments for far-away impact' and I have to say, I don't disagree!

I apply this mascara to my lashes after curling them (for a long time) with my Tweezerman Eyelash curlers. The pigmentation is great, my lashes are instantly black, and the formula dries in just the right amount of time to hold the curl, but allow enough time to still apply a second coat. Being a waterproof mascara, the wear time of this product is ongoing, I haven't once had it smudge on me, and it doesn't come off until I remove it myself, however, this is normally what you find with a waterproof mascara. 

All in all, I am impressed with this mascara, however, I'm not shouting from the roof tops. It does exactly what my favourite Maybelline mascara's do, but costs over £5 more. So if you ask me, save the money and buy the Maybelline equivalent (The Rocket). 

Let me know your thoughts on this mascara? Or maybe the Maybelline The Rocket mascara?
