Estee Lauder Sumptous Extreme Mascara ($23.50) Lashes seem to multiply, magnify, grow to extremes. Three different high-volume fibers create audacious, false-lash effects. Extreme Bold Volume™ formula is a blend of three high-volume fibers in a mousse-light base. Acts like lash extensions multiplying and growing the look of lashes. Fortified with conditioning Lash-Advancing Vitamin Complex. The oversized BrushComber Extreme™ with two types of bristles-flexible fibers carry maximum formula; solid fibers comb and separate for clump-free definition. Available in 4 different colors, black, brown and 2 limited edition colors violet and indigo.
The 3 Fibers
- Unique interlocking fibers build volume + length
- Hollow fibers create massive volume, without weight
- Ball fibers fill in and fill out even the sparsest lashes
The mascara applies clump free with the first layer with the second one it is still clump free but with thicker lashes. The big brush makes it very easy to coat all lashes, even the small ones on the side. I like what this mascara does for my lashes I would rate this as one below the quality of Dior lashes. My lashes are not clumpy, they are long and, hold a curl well.
The violet mascara looks very purple on the brush but when applied onto darker lashes you’ll see a hint of purple but it is not very noticeable, perhaps it would be more noticeable on lighter lashes. I would assume this effect would be the same for the blue mascara. I would recommend just getting the classic black and skip on the colored lashes.
Recommendation: With just 1-2 layers you’ll get clump free long lashes. The formula and brush separates each individual lash for a lengthening and slightly volumized look. In my opinion I don’t think the mascara gives the lashes a lot of volume but it does give off the false lash look.
