Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara has some pretty big claims, but does it live up to them?
This new mascara comes in four colors: Extreme Black, Extreme Brown, Extreme Indigo and Extreme Violet.
“What makes this mascara different is the synergy of the lightweight Extreme Bold Volume Formula™, a special blend of three customized lash building fibers, and the exclusive Extreme BrushComber™ that work together to give you the most outrageously bold lashes.”
For me pretty much ANY mascara on my upper lashes is a huge improvement because mine are sparse and not so luscious. However I did find that these work really well at both plumping and lengthening my lashes.
Black, Indigo, Brown
Normally I am not a big fan of larger sized mascara brushes like these because I find them harder to use. But these actually were really nice. I think because they weren’t super thick and are tapered at the tip, it makes them easier to wield.
The mascara is pretty much totally clump-free and the colors are rich and saturated.
Naked (hideous) lashes
Extreme Black is very black, which is always what I am looking for in a black mascara. I like it SUPER dark and this fits the bill nicely.
Extreme Brown actually looks like more of a shimmery coppery/brown on my hand swatch, but you don’t really see the color on the lashes. It’s hard to tell it’s brown unless you see it in the sunlight, but it does look lighter than the black.
Extreme Indigo is a really nice deep blue, that definitely looks blue on the eyelashes. It’s dark enough of a blue that I don’t have to layer it over black for depth, which is great!
Black, Brown, Indigo
If you are looking for a nice, thick, non-clumping super black mascara I think Extreme Black is a great pick. I also recommend Extreme Indigo if you are into blues but don’t want anything too vivid. Extreme Brown was kind of just ok for me, I am not much of a brown mascara person, I never see the point of it. 🙂
These are available now at Estee Lauder counters and retail for $23.50.
