Sample Saturday - MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara

Today for Sample Saturday I have a quick review of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara in Rich Black. I've heard a lot of great things about this, and I was happy to try a sample first. Even more because this is a high end mascara and for the price, I want to make sure I love it before I buy it. Find out my thoughts on this mascara and if I would buy the full size below!


More info on the MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara:
 A mascara that gives the lashes curl, volume, length, and intense pigment. This ultra-pigmented mascara was specially designed to give the lashes an exceptional volume-enhancing effect with infinite lengthening and immediate curling.

After using this mascara sample for about a week, I just did not enjoy it. I felt like the formula was weighing my lashes down which was preventing them from staying curled throughout the day. They stayed curled for a few hours, but after that they just looked straight again. It did give me some volume but not length at all. I felt like my lashes were still short and a bit clumpy. My lashes were definitely not loving this mascara which is a bummer.

Another thing I noticed was throughout the day the mascara was flaking off. Not entirely bad but I would find a few flakes here and there and I was starting to worry they were going to get in my eyes. I wear contacts so if they did, they would of irritated my eyes and my contacts. This mascara was a definite no-go for me and I will not buy the full size. I'm happy I tried out a sample first!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara (full size) retails for $23.00.

Let me know your thoughts on this mascara!
