Following up on last week’s post on MAKE UP FOR EVER‘s new sculpting duo, they recently released a new mascara that’s worth a try – the Smoky Stretch Lengthening & Defining Mascara. The formula has a “Flex Control Complex,” made to ensure lashes are elongated and defined at every angle.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of comb brushes in mascaras. I almost feel as though I have more control with the final look and they play well with my lashes, so I was thrilled to find a longer, thinner comb brush in this mascara. My go-to for many years was Benefit They’re Real! and I’ve recently been using Roller Lash and Lash Sensational, but I find all three of those (while fab mascaras) have thicker combs which make it difficult to get right to the base of your lashes or catch our bottom lashes without seeing some product transfer. The beauty of this particular mascara is it essentially eliminates this problem, given the thinner comb.
In terms of wear, it lasts all day and doesn’t flake, and I also didn’t find it transfers at all. The pigmentation is nice and dark, giving a full-impact look whether you wear it alone or with complete eye makeup.
If you like plastic mascara combs and are looking for something that lengthens and defines like a dream, this is your mascara. Grab it at Sephora or MAKE UP FOR EVER boutiques for $28.00!
