Most Helpful Positive Review Good, but different.....
The mascara wand itself it perfect - nice and long, thick bristles - they really get every lash. The formula of the mascara however is rather 'chunky', clumpy... I was scared to apply it due to how chunky it came out of the tube! HOWEVER ---- the formula is thinner than what you'd expect from something so chunky - it goes onto the lashes 'thinly', which helps it to apply to each lash. I bought the brown (I'm a redhead so black lashes are a no-no), and it is a PERFECT brown; the part I like the best about the color itself is, it's kind of shimmery. Not sparkles or glitter, just a nice shimmer? Kind of like the hair on your head has a nice shimmer, why not the hair on your eyes have a shimmer, too? You WILL need a lash brush with this --- at least, I do --- I use an old (cleaned) mascara wand and after applying this mascara, brush the lashes out so they do not clump. I have long, plentiful lashes, but they are CLEAR... not blonde, not red, CLEAR! So yeah... if you have lashes but they are invisible like mine - this mascara will help them pop. My lashes do look longer using this mascara vs. the previous brand I was using. Just get a lash brush!!! Oh and the case of the mascara is most likely able to wishstand a nuclear blast; just like all of E.L.'s products, very sturdy, not plastic, you can probably throw this across the room and set it on fire and the mascara is safe inside. So hey, after a nuclear war, and all that's left are roaches, at least they'll have marvelous eyelashes! They'll just need a lash brush...

I have used countless sample size versions of this mascara and raved about it to anyone and everyone. I love the way it goes on, the way it doesn't clump together, and even the way it washes off. The problem is that once I broke down and bought the full size it turns out to be nothing like the sample size! The brush is always full of goop and hard to apply without making a mess, and most importantly it hurts my eyes when washing it off. The first time it happened I thought I must have rubbed soap in my eyes, now after the 15th time (I really should have learned my lesson by now) I'm 100% sure it was the mascara. I threw it in the garbage last night. Incredibly disappointing. I'm not sure what the deal is here but I am not a fan.

I love this mascara! I have tried just about every mascara on the market and no doubt this is the best! It makes my short lashes look long and full, I'll never buy another mascar!
Lana from Boston, MA
This is my everyday go to mascara! Fans out my eyelashes perfectly while giving them depth and volume!
Only flaw is it is very sensitive to water.. runs fairly easily- but that's usually not an issue for me!
Perfect for everyday make-up
Rosia from Portland and Oregon
This mascara is long and thick with good results. It doesn't make the makeup look too rich and colorful. I love this everyday makeup feeling, and it's a good makeup remover.
Everything you want in a mascara!
li4skylar from nj
Let me start by saying that this mascara is worth every penny because it lasts 3 months with every day use. With drugstore mascaras, I am purchasing once a month and not getting even close to the same results as Estee Lauders Sumptuous Extreme. The color is extremely black, my lashes are the most long and full, and it lasts all day with ZERO flaking, smudging, and clumping. Two coats is all you need for those full fluttery lashes. Also, the brush is stiff so no mistakes with accidentally hitting your lid with some cheap plastic floppy brush. What more could you ask for? Go buy it!
Invest in this mascara. It truly is worth it. I will layer.

Th is mascara lasts and goes on easily. It layers so you can wear a little or a lot.
Holly from Bradenton, Florida
This is a great mascara. I have used it for at least a decade. The mascara never smears and lasts all day. I work in healthcare and use PPE all day from head to toe and even then this mascara lasts.
I LOVE this mascara!
OlyJan from Olympia WA
This is my favorite mascara! I've tried so many...lashes are so long and full after using this!
Cassafras from Edwardsville IL
Gives the perfect amount of natural fluffiness and volume I don't have the longest lashes but it helps to spread them and make them look long and full. Not clumpy or flaky.
Lamitz from Batavia New York
I have been using this mascara for a while and it is the best. My lashes look fantastic. The mascara lengthens and separates my lashes and never clumps or flakes. I highly recommend this product.
Best of the best
Lorianne from Ashland, KY
I love this mascara. It lengthens and thickens. The only negative is that is does smear under my eyes if I have to wear my glasses.
Recommended by Ulta - No thanks
CJScold from ND
I'm a nurse who works 10-12 hour shifts and after a few hours or by the end of the day, I looked like a racoon. This was recommended by an employee at Ulta and I wish I would have returned it after I saw how much smudging it caused. I liked how my eyelashes looked, but won't ever buy again.
What a mess
Aggies95 from Arkansas
Runny and thick, doesn't provide anything but makes my lashes look short and dull. Most of it winds up being wiped with a Q-tip.
I have oily eyelids, looks like a mess at the end of the day
Caribougirl13 from Bloomington. MN
I do like this product. It goes on well, makes my lashes look really long, the brush is great because it separates each lash. I however, have oily skin and my eyelids are a mess by the end of the day. They are blacked with dots where the mascara came off and underneath my eyes are also dotted, not smeared like some would be but close together dots, It also only lasted 5 weeks. is that the normal? If so, I am going to have to put mascara into my monthly budget with financial planner next time we meet. Almost more than the electric bill. Might need to keep looking.

Amazing but cannot last long
Amy from NV
I definitely like this mascara, my eyelash looks long and separate after using it. But it cannot last long, it will makes my face looks dirty if I rub my eyes.I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have eye problems.
I will buy again.
Lucy from Portland,OR
I get this in a gift set. It is good.
Andy from Salem Oregon
I absolutely love this mascara!!!! This gives you great length and separation. The best part is how the brush tapers in so you can get the inner and outer corners of the eye effortlessly!!!!

Good mascara, curls and lengthens
PC from King of Prussia, PA
I love how this mascara lengthens and curls my lashes. It's dark black color really makes my lashes look great. The only issue is that it sometimes flakes.
