Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Set

Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara Set
I've wanted to try Smoky Lash for the longest time. When I spotted it as part of this set in Sephora, including a free miniature eye pencil and makeup remover, I couldn't say no. Smoky Lash is one of the most raved about and divisive mascaras in the blogging world, and has frustratingly limited availability in the UK. Is it worth the hype? Well, yes.

I knew that Smoky Lash was my new favourite mascara when, on my first wear, my younger sister asked me why I was wearing false eyelashes (I wasn't). Smoky lash is the perfect mascara for adding volume and length, without making the lashes feel 'wet'. It holds a curl perfectly and doesn't drop throughout the day, and only takes one coat to achieve full, black eyelashes. My favourite thing about Smoky Lash mascara is its incredible staying power. This mascara lasts all day, and doesn't smudge or transfer at all. 

The other product which impressed me in this set was the Sens'Eyes eye makeup remover. After realising how smudge-proof this mascara is I thought it would be a total pain to take off, but actually this product makes removing waterproof mascara so easy. A bit of this blue gel on a cotton pad swiped across the lid a couple of times and all traces of my eye makeup are gone. This remover is alcohol and oil free, so doesn't irritate my eyes. I'll definitely be buying a full size of this when I run out.

The only product which I wasn't blown away by was the Aqua Eyes liner. I'd wanted to try this for so long (I actually bought another shade at Sephora too), and was a little disappointed. This swatches as a really creamy, highly pigmented liner, but I found it really difficult to work with on the waterline. It became much sheerer. However, after a couple of goes I found this to also be a product with excellent staying power.

Overall I'm really happy with this set and will definitely be repurchasing Smoky Lash and Sens'Eyes. Make Up For Ever is a brand that I've been impressed by so far, and I'd like to try a few more products from them.

  1. I've never tried any make up for ever products, but this sounds really good! I hate feeling wet mascara still a while after I've applied it.

  2. wow, I really need to try this mascara. Anytime someone mixes up your real lashes for falsies.. that's when you know you're wearing amazing mascara.

  6. I have the eyeliner but I haven't tried it yet. I would love to see how it compares to one of my favourite L'Oreal liners as they seem quite similar but there's of course, a big price difference.

  7. This brand in general has really intrigued me! I especially am interested in the waterproof concealer I just have had trouble finding this brand in an online site that ships to Australia!

  9. ahh i love the MUFE smokey lash, so glad you like it too! and i know what you mean with the aqua eyes pencil, it's not as creamy as i like pencils to be making it kind of hard to blend into the waterline. i much prefer the urban decay 24/7 liners for that :) love your blog, so glad i came across it. am your newest follower now! x

  10. I'm always tempted to stray from my L'Oreal Voluminous for more spendy mascaras and I always wind up running back. This is very tempting, though!

  11. Good to know that the Aqua Eyes liner isn't all that, as I was considering getting it! I'd never actually heard of smokey lash before I read this though, and now I really want it! I can tell your blog is going to be bad for my bank balance! xx

  12. I really love MUFE Smoky Lash too, but I find the tubes dry out quickly. I want to try their new one Smoky Extravagant. The brush looks pretty interesting.
