Test driving Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara!

Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara - $28.50 - is the latest Sumptuous mascara offering and promises "over-the-top mega-volume lashes with zero-clumping".  

It has a mousse like formula with a blend of light-weight gels, polymers, waxes and pigments to create volume without clumping and a blend of hybrid powders to maximize extreme volume.  The brush is also new – a big brush in a new shape that provides all the thickening of a brush with the definition of a comb.  

And to give you beautiful, healthy lashes it's enriched with Vitamin B5 and Rosemary

Available at counters now in Extreme Black, Extreme Brown, Extreme Indigo and Extreme Violet


Here's the before and after - as you can see my lashes are naturally light and fine, really I just look like an albino bunny without mascara - this is a close up to give you an idea of the volume
And here's a picture to give you an idea of the length results - I combed them out a bit from the first picture! 

I don't generally wear thickening mascaras because I usually find the brush so big that it's tricky to use - this brush was a little bigger then regular brushes but not huge and ungainly so I was able to deal.  Normally I would comb out my lashes like I did in the second picture for a less dramatic work look and leave them be when I am going out - the one thing I did find when I combed this mascara is it flakes - not a huge amount but enough to be annoying.  I didn't find that it flaked anymore during the day with regular wear so this was probably just a by-product of combing the mascara when it was already dry.

Has anyone else tried it and what did you think of it?!

  1. The mascara looks like it worked wonderfully on you. It also brought out the color of your eyes which is so beautiful. I'm so jealous because mine are brown. Lol

  2. Aww, thanks Pam! I love brown eyes though, it's hard to look the least bit exotic with blue eyes! ;-)

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. I'm so mascara obsessed. Badly need to reduce the fat on my thighs but would love fatter lashes (and lips). This may be one to try!

  4. I love this mascara! I've been trying it out on myself, and have used it on a few clients - it looks great on everyone! I love that the brush is big, but still easy to work with!
