Make Up Forever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara Review

February 2021 (WHAT'S NEW?)

Make Up Forever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara Review
Product Description
At its core, the Make Up Forever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara is just so deeply mediocre that it makes you wonder where the “extravagant” part of its name comes from. To be fair, the color intensity of this product is great for coating lashes and it does stay true to its claim of being waterproof. But it’s bogged down my a clumsy applicator, a lack of discernible lengthening or volumizing, and a formula that constantly threatens clumping and flaking. With this product, the strong suits are quite strong, but the missteps are just too pronounced as well.

Our general consensus about the Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara is “eh.” It’s definitely not Make Up Forever‘s best or worst, that’s for sure. Not noteworthily awful, but it’s also not particularly great either.

The best part about this mascara is the color payoff. With the product applied, your lashes become a rich, dark black that, of course, really makes them pop. And the product’s claim about waterproofing is also accurate. Even after you go swimming, the product, true to its word, is still visibly on the lashes.

Now, the bad. First off, the applicator is a little unstable, and if you don’t know your way around with this mascara yet, you’re liable to get some product on your lid or undereye, which is not a great look to be sporting. Despite the product’s rich color payoff, it does lack any true discernible lengthening or volumizing. Furthermore, this may get both clumpy and flaky, so definitely keep an eye out on that.

As we mentioned, it’s not a truly horrible mascara, but it makes you question where the “extravagant” part of this mascara is because it’s so deeply mediocre. Make Up Forever has a ton of better mascaras in their line, and it’s a shame that this one just doesn’t meet the same standard.

SUITABLE FOR: All skin types.
