I've made it no secret since writing my blog that I have pretty pathetic eyelashes, they really are bad, they are very pale due to me being fair skinned and having fair hair and they are sparse and just generally rubbish. I have struggled with mascaras smudging for years and last year for my birthday my daughters bought me the Estee Lauder Little Black Primer (see a full review of that here) and with it I got a sample of the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara in black and after using it and loving it I purchased the full size and today I am going to share my thoughts and some before and after photographs with you.
I really like the packaging of the mascara it's a lovely navy blue and gold tube with gold writing and some paler blue detailing on it, it is lovely packaging. The wand is a slim plastic/rubber wand with short bristles.
The wand has bristles right to the edge which is great for reaching the lashes right in the inner corner of the eyes.
The first time I used the mascara I was blown away with the results, my lashes looked fuller and longer and the mascara didn't smudge at all, I was so impressed by it and normally I wouldn't ever buy a high end mascara but after using the sample and loving it so much I purchased the full size and love it just as much as the sample if not more, it seems to apply better and give even better results than the sample if that's possible? The mascara applies with ease and doesn't smudge, it has a nice consistency and isn't too wet, I find some new mascaras can be a little too wet and are better when they have been open a while but the sumptuous infinite is just the right consistency and applies well without any smudging, the wand makes it easy for me to reach the corner lashes and it is great for applying mascara to the bottom lashes too.
The mascara removes easily using whatever form of make up remover I am using, sometimes I use make up remover and sometimes a balm cleanser or oil based wash off make up remover and I have even used a make up wipe and the mascara has removed with ease every time and with whatever method of make up remover I've used. I haven't experienced any flaking or smudging at all and the mascara wears brilliantly all day and still looks as fabulous when I come to remove it as it did when I applied it.
Now onto the photographs of the results...
After Mascara (one coat)
One Eye With Mascara & One Without
The last photograph shows me wearing 2 coats of the mascara on my top lashes and I am sure you will agree the results speak for themselves, you can see how short and stubby my lashes are on the eye without mascara but the difference in length and volume is incredible and I am really pleased, I have been asked a couple of times if I'm wearing false lashes which is amazing as my lashes have always been pathetic so that is a huge compliment for me.
