Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara Review


Make Up For Ever I love you so but would you be terribly hurt if I give your Smoky Lash Mascara a bad review?

Eep!

A few months ago I got slap happy about Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara after seeing the incredible promo photo that went along with the release. Almost immediately I ran out to get some.

Disappointment set in fast….

Now I got this mascara months ago and I’m just bringing myself to review it now. It’s just so bad I wasn’t sure what to write about it exactly. I’ve never really had a problem with raccoon eyes due to my mascara. I’ve had a few flaking problems but no crazy raccoon looking eyes until I tried out Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara.

Oh.
My.
God.

What a mess. I was expecting really dark, smoky lashes when I tried this and what I got was a flaking, runny mess that left a dark ring under my eyes and made me look absolutely ridiculous. First application ended up with a bunch of flaky pieces of mascara falling around my eyes. Basically the mascara feels like it dried out and it was old when in fact it was a fresh tube that I just purchased. After cleaning up the flaky pieces I noticed my lashes were all clumped together and spidery looking…ugh…proceeded to comb them out and tried to be happy with the mess they were. Two hours into work and I check my makeup and I’m sporting a ton of mascara running around under my eyes making me look like someone hosed me down with some water.


This is possibly the worst mascara I’ve ever used. I cannot believe the mess my lashes were after use.

Final verdict, avoid at all costs. Definitely an epic fail!

Hates it!

With a passion.

Love ya MUFE but sorry I’m just not loving this mascara.

Anyone try?

Had better results?

Do share it!

WANT IT: Philosophy Eye Hope

philosophy+eye+hope

The Muse is a bit of a Philosophy girl with her skincare so of course she wants to try out the new Philosophy Eye Hope ($48 USD)!

With the promise of a renewed hope for my skin and powerful clinical results, this sounds like the eye cream I’ve been hoping for. Six weeks of use shows significant improvement in fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness. Honestly, I’ve had great success with fine lines and dark circles but have yet to find a match that will cure my puffy eyes so here’s to hoping that Philosophy Eye Hope might do the job plus bring home with my fine lines and circles too.

Sounds good to me!

Available now from Nordies and Sephora.

Anyone try yet?

Musings Poll of the Day: Victoria’s Secret versus Bath and Body Works

It’s a been a while since we had a beauty poll! Miss it?

Today is a poll of favorites! So what’s your fav place for Bath and Body goodies? Are you a fan of Victoria’s Secret or Bath and Body Works? If you had to choose one which would it be?


As for me I’m a big lover of Victoria’s Secret since they are a tad more on the unique side when compared to Bath and Body Works. Bath and Body Works used to have the edge with it’s interesting little cute items like the Temptations Collection but since they have gone very mainstream I find I prefer VS over BBW. Victoria’s Secret seemed to have more unique fragrances in their body splashes and they introduce some really fun items during the different seasons. So I’m def for VS.

How about you?
