Last month I made a repurchase of an old favourite product of mine – Sumptuous Extreme Mascara by Estée Lauder (incase you couldn’t guess from the title!) I discovered this product well over two years ago from a gift with purchase goody bag I received when I first tried Estée Lauder’s Doublewear Foundation and Concealer, which is also one of my favourite all time foundations, review here.
It was always in the back of my mind to repurchase it but I just never got around to doing it, but when I recently ran out of my current mascara from Bobbi Brown, the Smokey Eye Mascara – also fab (review here). I marched right into town because I wanted to see if my memory lived up to the hype I remembered!
This mascara is meant to multiply and volumize your lashes and I think I would have to agree. It really lengthens and separates your lashes when you first apply it, but I have to say, the length definitely drops a short while after application. To explain it better, it doesn’t hold the curl/length very long, but, I still think its a really great mascara. For the fact that its jet black and really defines your lashes and isn’t too clumpy, so its easy to apply multiple coats for a more evening look. It removes easily as well with micellar water and a cotton pad.
Im still happy that I repurchased this mascara to get it out of my system, but I think there are other mascaras out there for the same price tag that do a slightly better job! Nonetheless its still a great mascara for all you Estée Lauder gals out there!
