This year I’m trying out many mascaras and my fiancé got me this one to review for you guys: The Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara
This is priced at: US$ 27.50 (0.27 oz)
I haven’t tried many products from Estée Lauder and I was very excited when he gifted me this, which came in the blockbuster holiday set from last year (the set is on sale right now)
The packaging is: Gorgeous as always with Estée Lauder products, but I dislike the wand because it’s extremely big and old-fashioned.
This product claims to: Magnify, multiply and grow your lashes to the extreme. But it requires multiple coats to reach all 3 results above. For a high-end brand, I expected it to happen in just one coat, like with the Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara that I’m obsessed with right now.
On the first coat, my lashes looked extremely long, but thin at the same time. With the second coat, however, my lashes got a bit more volume, but the wand is extremely large and it was difficult to reach the inner corners of my eyes (which caused poking in the eye and I teared and smeared mascara all over- it’s not waterproof!) The large bristles also clamped my lashes and it was difficult separate them later.
All in all, I do not recommend this mascara for the price you pay. I would still use it on days that I have more time to spare on my lashes but if you’re on the go, this is not a good product because it requires multiple coats and gets messy because of the thick bristles and large wand.
Some other mascaras you may consider:
- MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Lash Mascara
- Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara
- Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
- Sephora Outrageous Volume Mascara
I hope this review helps you…
See you soon,
