Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara
Probably the best purple mascara of any make up brand
I received this mascara as part of a birthday present earlier this year, along with a couple of other Estee Lauder products, and it's one of my favourite mascaras. I have 'Extreme Violet' as I'm a sucker for anything purple and it's probably the best purple mascara of any beauty company, bar none. It's densely pigmented which means you can see the colour straight away when you apply the first coat, unlike some other coloured mascaras that need at least five or six coats before the colour is visible from a distance. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with short and/or sparse lashes as the brush is quite long, though it's ideal for moderate to long lashes. It doesn't clump and it doesn't leave your lashes feeling 'crispy' so you don't have to worry about the mascara flaking off and falling onto your face throughout the day. And in true Estee Lauder style, the packaging is just gorgeous. Yes it is quite a lot to pay for mascara but you're paying for quality as well as luxury from one of the world's most iconic names in beauty.

Not for me...back to the old one!
I've been using the normal Sumptuous mascara for a couple of years, so thought I'd try this one for a change. So wish I'd stuck with what I know....I imagine it's great if you already have long lashes, but I found the brush too big for my shorter lashes and the mascara too wet! Smudges all over my eyes and is too thick and heavy...so will go back to the original one I'm afraid. Sorry, EL, I love your make up but this one's not for me :(

My favourite mascara
I love this mascara, it makes my lashes look really thick and full. The colour is a really pigmented black and even after several coats my lashes still feel soft. I do have long lashes which based on the reviews below might be why this works well for me.
