The minute that I spotted the Sephora in France, I knew I had to pick this up. There are many items of Make Up For Ever that have I'd love to try and have quite a cult following but this was something I knew I could grab quickly.
I'm not sure what my expectation were exactly prior to using it. Just generally greatness maybe! To start with I was a disappointed and didn't know what the all the fuss was about. The brush is nice in terms of size, I can become nervous if they're too big as my lashes are weedy and sparse. The formula is quite thick and clumpy as you can probably see from the brush pictures below. It's quite thick on my lashes too and does draw the lashes together. This was initially frustrating as usually prefer a more natural look.
Strangely, I've found myself reaching for it more and more. It might not be a natural look but it does quickly create a lot of drama around the eyes. It looks good with simple liner or as a compliment to a smoky eye look. It is very dark too which I like in a mascara. Although it clumps the lashes, I find it does build volume and length very quickly and also layers well. It isn't crispy and despite looking quite fibrous, it doesn't flake which is really important for me.
MUFE Smoky lash is definitely not my favourite mascara but after an iffy start, I've grown to really like it. I think if you like dramatic lashes and don't mind a little bit of clumping, you may enjoy this mascara. MUFE is available from www.gurumakeupemporium.com in the UK and costs £17.50.
