My sister received this in a sample bag and seeing as she does not use mascara she gave it to me. I am pretty fussy when it comes to mascara so I am always skeptical no matter who makes it. It turns out this is probably the BEST mascara I have used in a long time. It does not clump at the end of the wand like most do. It went on my lashes very nicely and best of all it does not cake or clump over time. I am very happy to see it also comes in brown. It is a bit pricy but when I think of all the mascaras I have thrown out after only a couple of tries it's not so bad. Hopefully it will go on sale somewhere.

This mascara is *somewhat* volumizing and lifting on the upper lashes; however, on the lower lashes it isn't easy to apply because of the brush. The best way to describe the brush is it's jagged and rough.

Received this in a sample size, but would not purchase this out of pocket. Prefer a mascara I can use on both upper and lower lashes. Overpriced, mediocre mascara, imo.

I've found this mascara totally mediocre, and as there are much better choices in this price category, I gave a definite NO for repurchase. It's nicely pigmented, but it clumps and flakes a bit. Nothing horroristic or panda-like, but enough to make you unhappy about this product and put it in the drawer and forget about it.

I got this as a GWP. It's nothing special. It's not bad, but not really good either. There are much better mascaras out there. I won't purchase. Probably won't even finish the sample.

I am familiar with Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme mascara and love it. This was my first time trying this version. This mascara looks kind of ordinary. The brush is average, not too big or too small and the mascara formula itself is the same, not too wet or too dry. This mascara is really nice though. It definitely lives up to its name of Bold Volume Lifting Mascara. This gives just the right blend of length and volume to my lashes. I had no smudge issues with this which is great because I wear contacts. I only have an issue with it being a little too expensive that I would not splurge on it very often.

I got a GWP sample version of this mascara and at first I loved it.

Here are the good things.

Great volume, no clumping. Smooth creamy formula goes on easily and much thicker than my Clump Crusher by Cover Girl which is my favourite. Lashes look lush. Even though it's a brush it doesn't clump and the brush makes an even smooth clump free application.

It had my attention! Even at 29$ Canadian this is a good mascara I thought.

Even has an elegant SLIM gold and black tube that looks sophisticated and doesn't take up half my purse makeup bag! This is something I would LOVE Cover Girl to make but their formula is so good it's worth the juvenile disgusting clunky heavy tube in violent neon green.

SO WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

Flakes big and small began raining down my cheeks and creating panda circles under my eyes, enhancing my bags!

I get 4 hours wear before the flaky fallout begins so I may yet buy a tube just for evenings out but for all day wear forget it.

And once the fallout begins after 4 hours, i get an itchy heavy feeling in my lashes so I also start wanting to rub my eyes. NOT GOOD! And the flakes land in my eyes irritating them too. I don't wear contacts but I can't imagine this is a good thing for people who do.

If I was the kind of person who washes everything off midday and does a full fresh makeup this would work, BUT I'm not.

I expect a mascara of ANY price to go the distance. Stay on the lashes all day then come off without much effort. Clump Crusher does that. It set the standard. This takes extra rubbing and scrubbing to get it all off and I'm still finding more when I use my toner and cotton pad after cleansing which I shouldn't be.

I love Estee L for some things, others I save my money and buy a cheaper better item elsewhere.

Smudges very fast, adds a bit clumpy look. Not a fan of Estee Lauder products.
But EL glosses are even worst, so this one is not that bad.

I'm sad to read all these bad reviews, cause I can't relate to them.
My experience is above average.

I have long natural lashes (maybe the mascara is better for those with long lashes??)

Well.. The mascara lifts my lashes, and they stay lifted all day. It makes them fuller. It doesn't sting my eyes and it doesn't smudge after a long hot day. Furthermore it doesn't flake under eyes.
And it is easy to remove.

My only concern:
The mascara tends to clump a little when applying, (just a tiny bit) but it is fixable.

Got this as a gwp, it does no favors for my lashes. Its very natural looking unlike what its name claims.
