I think it is amazing that Sephora gives you a free gift just for being a Beauty Insider on the month of your birthday! If you haven’t signed up already, do it! It is free.

Mascara “Smokey Extravagant”:
I have been wanting a new mascara, and this gift couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! The brush has a much wider base as opposed to the tip, but I had no problems using it. My lashes looked a bit fuller and longer and it held my curl well. I was previously using Covergirl’s Clump Crusher and it didn’t look like I had any mascara on when I used it! It also would not let my lashes hold a curl for some odd reason! (I warm up my eyelash curler prior to use FYI!). I like this little tube, but I am not sure if I would want to repurchase. I would want to compare more brands before I made that big of a commitment! I am not sure if I am sold on buying higher end mascara. I hear a lot of people say that there is really no point. This is one item that if really different for every user!
MUFE Mascara Score: 9/10
Lipstick: “Rogue Artist Natural”:
Left: natural lips; Right: Lipstick
I really like the lipstick! It is about a shade darker than my actual lip color, so it’s really nice for a natural to no makeup look! The smell isn’t bad, and it does not feel thick or heavy. I didn’t need to put balm on before application; it was so moisturizing! With out food it lasted about 5-6 hours. It does need a touch up after eating though, which is common for a regular lipstick. Would I buy lipstick from MUFE? Definitely. I have no complaints! I’m tempted to get a full size of this color eventually! I am not a natural lipstick girl, so that’s saying a lot!
This lipstick had very minimal kiss transfer! Much less than my MAC lipsticks.
