What I liked:
– gives lashes a natural look
– easy to remove
– the packaging
What I didn’t like:
-doesn’t add much lenght
– the price
A while ago, the Italian Estee Lauder website put up a form to request a sample of their Sumptuous mascara. Needless to say, I filled it in and waited. The mascara arrived pretty quickly and I was so curious I tried it on straight away.
The mascara is a rich black with a wet and lightweight formula and goes on easily. It provides some volume, a bit of length and although, it lifts my lashes, it doesn’t hold the curl for long. I’d say this is a good daytime mascara that makes lashes look very natural, but if, like me, you’re looking for a product that provides a false lashes effect, then skip this.
The brush is very easy to work with: bigger at the base and slim at the tip to reach all those tiny lashes. The mascara clumps a bit and I also experienced minimal smudging. The staying power is impressive, though: it lasts all day. And it’s very easy to remove as well.
The mascara comes in a simple gold tube, which looks very elegant and classy.
Overall, I was a bit disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good and basic daytime mascara that gives some volume and lenght and is perfect for those who want a natural look, but nothing more. The mascara is clumpy and smudges, although not that much to actually bother me. It lasts all day and is easy to remove. However, once my sample runs out, I don’t think I’ll buy this as there are lots of mascaras out there that deliver the same results for a lot less money.
