Mini-Review: Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara

gift with purchase

Hi everyone! This is just a quick review of the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara. I received this sample sized mascara a while back as a gift with purchase when I picked up some EsteeLauder lipsticks. I’ve used up my favourite Guerlain Maxi Lash and I’m waiting for the Sephora VIB Rouge sale (which starts tomorrow!) to purchase another one, so I’ve been trying out the Estee Lauder.

FYI – the full size looks like this:

I am not a fan of this mascara. The brush is way too big and the bristles are thick and close together. I can’t apply it without getting mascara on my eyelids. #hoodedlidproblems

It also flakes off like crazy! By the end of the day I have all kinds of little black flakes under my eyes and on my cheeks. Total deal breaker for me when it comes to mascara. I haven’t tried any of the other Estee Lauder mascaras (they have 10 of them!) but I am a huge fan of their Pure Color Envy Lipstick.

Thanks for reading!
Love,

    You should really check out Younique’s 3D fiber lash mascara this stuff won’t flake and it will last all day (through tears and everything!) I’m a little obsessed ;p (they have a great refund policy too). https://www.youniqueproducts.com/LaSarah/products/view/US-1017-00#.VSxUS_nF87o

  2. I wasn’t impressed with this mascara as well when I tried it.

  3. I think I tried this as a sample size before and I recall it gave me nice full lashes but yes, it was a bit flakey.
    Thanks for this mini-review!
