A while back I was on the hunt for the perfect mascara. In order to find that perfect mascara I bought quite a lot of mascara during a sale period, which resulted in a very long trying and testing era. A lot of the mascara’s I bought back then have been tried, tested and reviewed already, but some of them haven’t yet. One of the mascara’s that I haven’t talked about earlier is the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Mascara. I have been testing it for about a month or two now, which means it’s finally time for me to review it. If you’re interested in finding out what this mascara is like and whether or not it’s worth the money, make sure you continue reading this post!
First things first, let’s start off by talking about the packaging. Like most Estée Lauder makeup products, this mascara comes in a very classic looking packaging. Estée Lauder is one of those luxurious brands that likes to keep things classy. They have their own style and look and they stick to that. Their look usually means that their packagings are dark blue, shiny dark blue, and have golden details. This mascara comes in a packaging in exactly that colour scheme and I absolutely love the way that it looks. It’s just very classy and luxurious.
The shape of the mascara is rather basic. Well, I don’t even think it gets more basic than this to be completely honest with you guys. The tube is just straight and has the same kind of width and length as almost every single one of the mascara in a basic packaging do in this entire world. So that’s not very exciting, but I don’t mind that at all. This simplistic and basic look also has its charm.

Having said that, let’s take a closer look at the wand of this mascara. Because even though it might look very basic at first sight, it’s a little more special than you’d think. The thing that makes this wand a special wand is the fact that on one side it has longer bristles than on the other side. This makes it very easy to really separate the lashes and get them to look nice and long. Usually I start off with the normal side and then, when I go in for my second layer, I use the longer side so I won’t get clumps and my lashes won’t stick together.
The rest of the wand, aside from the long side, is pretty basic. It is one of those wands with silicone bristles and those are my favourites. I think these work the best for creating volume and length and they’re also good at separating the lashes. I like that the wand isn’t too thick but not too thin either. It’s just a very nice wand that allows you to really control what you’re doing while still doing everything it should do. If that makes any sense at all.
Having said that, let’s look at the claims. According to Estée Lauder their Sumptuous Infinite Mascara stretches the lashes to limitless length. The multitude of gravity-defying fibers take the lashes far beyond tips. The lashes will be transformed-longer, fuller, dramatic. The innovative stretchable fibers perfectly shape, plump and extend each lash, from roots through tips and beyond. Fibers are fused onto lashes as the mascara dries, setting and locking-in length. It should have 10 hour wear and it should be clump resistant, flake proof and smudge proof. It’s also supposed to be sweat and humidity resistant and leave you with long, lush and infinitely daring lashes.
Overall this mascara does sound very interesting to me. According to these claims the main purpose of this mascara is to lengthen the lashes and I do honestly think it does a good job at that. Overall I’m pretty convinced that the claims Estée Lauder has made in regards to this mascara are true. It does really add a lot of length in a way I haven’t seen before and it does leave me with long, lush lashes and I love that. It also does a pretty good job at keeping my lashes separated, even after applying more than one or two coats. That’s pretty impressive to me.
The most impressive thing about this mascara is that it really is 10-hour wearing, maybe even longer. It really does stay in place and keeps its intensity all day long. It also really is sweat and humidity proof. Like most of us Dutchies know, it has been extremely humid the past couple of weeks and this mascara just didn’t budge at all. I have also worn this during intens boxing lessons and it just did not move. I have definitely worn mascara’s on occasions like that, that didn’t hold up as well at all. So Estée, you have done an incredible job at that!
Overall i’m just a really big fan of the way this mascara looks on my lashes. I think it looks lush, pretty and I just never knew my lashes could be this long. It’s really incredible!
Overall I’m a big fan of the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Mascara. I didn’t really have too high expectations of it at first, somehow I didn’t think it was going to be a favourite, but in the end this really is an incredible mascara and I love the quality of it. I definitely think that this is a mascara that is worth the money and is clearly different in quality compared to more affordable products. So if you have a lil’ money to splurge, you might want to check this out!
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and be sure to let me know what you think of this Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Mascara!
