Current (Beauty) Obsession: Smoky Extravagant Mascara

I’m talking mascara today and with a last name like mine…it’s gotta be good! This month, MAKE UP FOR EVER unleashed its fierce new mascara “Smoky Extravagant” and after I tried it, I knew it was love at first stroke. (You know when you know!) This innovative mascara envelopes your lashes with ultra-black pigments; adding a little ooh la-la to your beauty routine.

It’s also pretty smudge-proof. I wore it all day at the beach in the 95 degree heat recently and luckily there was not a mascara malfunction. (Who wears mascara to the beach? Apparently, I do!)

What I found striking is the clever cone-shaped brush that allows every lash to be coated, curled, lifted and elongated. Smoky Extravagant torches a lot of other brands I have tried recently and is totally worth the splurge. One sweep and you’ll be hooked.

Available at and MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques, $24
