Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara review with pictures

I feel like I’ve been deprived of ‘regular’ mascara wands of late, so this one was a welcome change. The wand and brush seem very average, except that the applicator is larger than the standard ones. With a mascara review I don’t see much point in blabbering on, so have a look at the pics instead:

Observations: It leaves lashes fairly soft (as in no spider-leg-lashes), meaning it’s less prone to crumbling. It’s a pretty intense black, making it a good fit for when I’m not wearing eyeliner, but don’t want to look washed out. Good length, good volume, intense black – the trifecta of a good mascara in my book.

    Hi, I’m a new reader. Found you through Lipgloss is my Life. I LOVE your eyebrows! Are you wearing eyeliner with the mascara?

      Hi Helen, welcome! *curtseys* Thanks, the eyebrows have a life of their own and I’ve learnt to let them be. The eyeliner you see there is the remainder of semi-permanent liner I had done when I was in college. C xx
