If you have read my previous post about the Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara you would know that I have been wishing for a waterproof version. Heh, I got my wish.

Reaching even the finest lashes from root to tip, the cone shaped brush works wonders at lengthening and
separating lashes with infinite precision. The non-sticky mascara texture glides over your lashes for zero-clump perfection, offering protection, lash extensibility and flexibility - which is what every woman needs for an everyday mascara!
• Abyssinian Oil blended with iron oxide minerals creates an intense and brilliant black hue.
• Red Seaweed extracts offer protection, flexibility and lash extensibility.
• A complex of wax and humidifying agents provides great comfort and sheathing power to lashes.
• The association of polymers and a synthetic thermoplastic resin helps to improve water resistance.
Its voluptuous shape makes for easy handling. The thick elastomer fibres of the brush are twisted so you can stretch the lashes while separating them from root to tip - for that special volumizing and lengthening effect.
It shares the same cone shaped wand as the Smokey Extravagant mascara.

Honestly speaking I don't see much of a difference between the two mascaras. I wore the waterproof version out to the pool and it stayed intact with just slight smudging at the end of session. With normal wear, it stays put without smudging my lower lids. I can apply multiple coats without the lashes looking like they belong to the legs of a tarantula. It is a lot harder to remove as compared to the original version. I actually prefer wearing the original because at the end of my work day I just don't want to deal with having to remove tenacious mascara. But when I know it need something a little more I bring out my Aqua version.
