This is by far the blackest mascara I have tried. It’s super super super black.
It does not clump . Even after 2-3 coats you don’t see the tiny bits of mascara on the tips of your lashes.
Stays on all day long and hold the curl pretty well.
It gives a super thickening effect to lashes . If you have sparse lashes , this one is a great pick. This almost gives that false lashes effect, without you actually wearing false lashes.
The brush design is such that it coats every single bit of lash.
this does not dry super last. It takes good 15-20 seconds for it to dry so you can layer up your mascara. And it would never clump.
Does not feel heavy or weigh down your lashes.
The formula is fantastic. It is between liquid and cream so it does not feel too wet or dry.
It does not say if it is water proof or water resistant but even when I am roaming out in the sun, it never smudges or smears.
Does not make your lashes hard as the day passes by.
It removes easily with an eye makeup remover or baby oil.
Overall I totally love this mascara. Estee Lauder never fails to impress when it comes to mascaras. I have bene using their mascaras for almost year and a half now and I would always purchase them. I just feel that they make non waterproof versions better than the water proofs ones. Waterproof ones become quite difficult to remove and I don’t like to do a tug of war with my lashes every day.
If you want very natural looking lashes- go for Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold. If you want dramatic volumised lashes, go for Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme.
Love this mascara from Estee Lauder. Esp the wand. Provides a lot of volume. I end up using a curler for my lashes first, so dont know if it can curl lashes well or not. Mine lasted me for almost 6 months, and I kept the wand to use for later!
