|Mary's Lashes: Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Extreme Violet / Eyeliner: L'Oreal Precision Point Liquid Eyeliner|
We've been itching to try a colored mascara for a while now, and we finally received two pretty shades as a gift. They're striking violet and teal hues by Estée Lauder - the Sumptuous Extreme Mascara, $25, which is the company's latest formula. Between the two shades, we both prefer the Extreme Violet (pictured on Mary above) over the Extreme Teal. While the teal mascara looks gorgeous in the tube, the color simply wasn't noticeable on our lashes. We expected the rich hue to appear striking, but the shade didn't look much different than our black mascaras. As for the Extreme Violet hue... this one is noticeable yet subtle. The color is not shocking by any means; it's intriguing. As for the mascara formula... it lengthens, separates and thickens quite nicely. The mascara brush is pretty large, so if your natural lashes are very small, it might be overwhelming to you. If you want to spice up your look a bit, you ought to try a colored mascara! Contrast is pretty, so go for a shade that is opposite of your eye color.
