Estee Lauder Sumptuous Volume Mascara

For as long as I can remember, I've always had an issue with my eyelashes. They've always been too short and never really stood out unless I wore fakes. A few of my friends have the most perfect, natural dolls eye eyelashes that makes me green with envy. I've experimented with all types of mascaras from volumising big brushes to fine brushes that promise to grab smaller hairs and also lash extensions and lash fibres. Lash fibres are the only thing that has made a real difference, but it's a bit of a hassle to apply on an everyday basis. I wanted an eye mascara that I could pick up, shove in my makeup bag and know that whenever I apply it, my eyelashes will have a fabulous volumised look. A few years ago, I went to a Marie Claire event and we were given Estee Lauder goodie bags. In the goodie bags were samples from the brand and I fell in love with the mascara sample. I've only ever used it on special occasions and unfortunately I ran out a few days ago. Rushing straight to the Estee Lauder counter in my local town, I was then informed that they no longer sell the mascara I wanted and I was advised to try the 'Sumptuous Volume' mascara instead.  I didn't really know what to expect, but I bought it anyway. If the last eye mascara was by the same brand, hopefully this would work just as well. In fact, the mascara worked even better than my previous one and I couldn't wait to show you it.

For the same price as the mascara, I could get the mascara gift set which included a vial of makeup remover and some night cream. This beautiful little set cost me around £22 and I think it's a reasonable price considering you pay so much more for luxury cosmetic brands. 

The brush applicator is rather thick, but not too thick that it makes your eyelashes clumpy. The gold detailing makes the brush look luxurious and overall, I think the brush is probably one of the easiest mascaras to use.

As you can see, my eyelashes look quite pronounced. It may not be as dramatic as some other eye mascaras you can buy, but my eye lashes look natural and long which is the most important to me. It's very rare that I'm ever happy with my eyelashes, but these days I can walk out of the house with a sprint in my step and a twinkle in my eye. Estee Lauder's Sumptuous mascara has made a huge difference to my makeup routine.

Have you tried this mascara before?
