Meh: Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara

When you buy an £18 mascara, you have high expectations, right?  You expect length, volume, a complete lack of clumps, easy application, and good wear.  Sadly, this Makeup Forever mascara doesn't quite deliver on all of those things - whilst it has a good, rich black formula, and it definitely provides plenty by way of length and volume, it struggles to be easy to apply and clump-free.

The problem, I think, is that Christmas tree shaped brush.  Once you pull it out of the tube, the fatter end is perfectly wiped down, but the skinny tip is pretty heavily laden with mascara.  I find that this combination makes application a bit of a faff - I use the skinny end to colour my lashes quickly, but that often results in over-mascaraed lashes, which need a good combing out with the fatter end, which can be a bit tricky round the inner corner and middle of the eye.

The results are quite nice, once I've spent a bit of time going over my lashes with both ends multiple times, swearing a bit, and wiping errant smudges from my nose.  My lashes are long, reasonably voluminous, and prettily fluttery.  But for £18, I expect more.  And sorry, MUFE, as much as I love your newly available in the UK products, Smoky Extravagant doesn't quite cut it for me.
