Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara Review

I bought this mascara about 3 months ago now and have been getting lots of compliments about how long my lashes look.

You can buy this mascara at Boots, House of Fraser, Debenhams etc as it is a high end product and retails for about £22.  

It does come with quite a big brush which I personally love as I find it gets through all my lashes without making them clumpy.  The liquid is quite wet so you have to be careful when using as it can go everywhere (I did it on the train once, disaster!)  It's quite a thick, heavy mascara so may not be great if you have short stumpy lashes as the brush may be too big.

This mascara also comes in brown, blue and green as well as black.  I have the original black colour as I wanted it more for everyday/going out.  I do love blue mascara too every now and then to mix things up and I think it looks great on dark eyes.

The colour is really pigmented and even if you have quite a few coats it won't go clumpy. I, like many girls, like to keep my mascara topped up during the night and I hate it when you've put on too many coats and it's goes hard and clumpy but this mascara keeps my lashes soft all night.

Excuse the 'rabbit caught in headlights' look!

One of the problems I did find is that where the brush is so big you can't get into the corner lashes so well and I normally end up smudging mascara everywhere trying. However, I do really want to try the Clinique bottom lash mascara so this could be an idea.

Overall I think this is a great mascara if you already have quite long lashes as it really separates them and makes them look even longer.  It doesn't smudge and lasts all day/night.  If you have shorter lashes however it might not give the best results for you as the brush is quite big.  I think I would rate this mascara 4/5.
