I love mascaras. The good ones of course. And though some of the Maybelline ones are good and I’d been repurchasing them for years, I felt it was time to move on.
For a couple of years now, I have been on the hunt for a new “go-to” mascara. I tried several top rated, blogger favourites and magazine recommendations, none really stood out.
Then one day, a lady at an Estee Lauder counter somehow randomly caught hold of me and sold me a tube of this
This is the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara, and it truly does stand up to it’s name. A single coat makes a difference and one does not need more than two coats (in my opinion) of this during the day.
I love the big, slightly chubby wand. I am not of the fan of the weird- shaped, gimmicky wands.
I like the simplistic gold tube and the normal looking wand.The formula isn’t too runny or clumpy, nor is it too dry.
And most importantly, it stays on for over 12 hours with no transfer; but at the same time is easy to get off without needing heavy, oil based removers.
Only con in my book- transfer prone in the first few minutes after application. But then every mascara does that.
On here, I really only mention things that I really like (or really detest!) so go on ladies, if you are looking for a decent (albeit slightly pricey) day-time mascara, this is one to try.
I obviously purchased 01 Extreme Black.
Till next time.
