Thumbs Down for Sumptuous Knockout Defining Lift and Fan Mascara by Estee Lauder
I have been using Estée Lauder mascara for many years so therefore I was really looking forward to trying out the ophthalmologist tested and fragrance free Sumptuous Knockout Defining Lift and Fan Mascara.
First of all let me start off by saying I was recommended this product by a friend. She was fully aware, I have tried many different makes of mascara with different brushes but for me the Estée Lauder mascara has always been the best mascara for me, so therefore I was always inclined to be that little partial and bias towards this Estée Lauder beauty product.
My friend and I bought one of these each at the same time. I must confess this is the worst mascara we have bought for the money. This mascara was very dry and difficult to apply, left clumps of mascara on the lashes and came off in clumps or bits underneath the eye. It didn’t lengthen or lift anywhere near as much as my current mascara. I was also slightly hesitant about the brush, as this is a plastic wand, but my fears were unwarranted and unjustified.
Its a case of different strokes for different folks, but I would not recommend this despite the rave reviews, simply because this mascara from Estée Lauder didn’t live up to expectations. Such a pity as the packaging looks so nice, albeit they were a bit stingy with the free samples we received with our Estée Lauder purchases.
