So I got this mascara as a gift for spending more than $35 at Estée Lauder. At first I was like eh it's okay, doesn't do much but it was the first time I had used it. After I twisted the brush in the tube to actually get the product I gave it another try. It is the most amazing mascara to ever lay on my lashes. I have naturally long and curled lashes. It have them lento volume and it was dark. I love how it separated my lashes not leaving clumpy no matter how many layers I applied. My lashes are thin so it make them look thick and full and it just made my lashes look longer than it is. I absolutely love the final look. I pared this product with the Estée Lauder little black primer because I have oily basically everything and mascara smudges on my lashes no matter what mascara I use. Even waterproof it smudges. But with the primer it made my lashes look intact all the long. It looked like I had just applied it. « less

Black Magic

This mascara is extraordinary. The darkest black, lightweight formulation mimics the natural silky gloss of healthy, lush eyelashes. It doesn’t clump, but makes every single lash perfect, adding length, volume, definition and curl. The brush that comes with it is the best I have ever come across – and I feel so lucky I’ve finally discovered something this good: it is perfect for getting full coverage on every lash, even the tiniest ones in a single sweep, and allows to create extra curl for dramatic look, as if professional make-up artist worked on your eye make-up! It is also the only mascara I wear on my lower eyelashes. I wore it all day long during the recent holiday in the sun, where my make-up had to endure 30’C heat and occasional splash of seawater -courtesy of my toddler, and it would stay perfect. Amazing for a non-waterproof mascara! The only downside is that it dries quite quickly. Anyway, I am giving it 5 out of 5, but I would just as well give it 100 out of 100. « less user

Beware - lovers of the standard Sumptuous mascara will find the waterproof version disappointing. I have wimpy eyelashes, so the Sumptuous (bold volume) mascara has been my favorite for a few years now. However, the waterproof version is something entirely different - it's clumpy and gooey and doesn't provide the WOW of long, bold lashes. So sad!

Excellent! However...

My eyes are very sensitive to mascara. I have a bit of a problem when it comes to blepharitis. Having read a review from a fellow sufferer, I decided to give it a try.Sensitivity: I have no problem with this mascara whatsoever.Staying power: I applied this mascara and it lasted for many hours. Granted, I neither perspired nor cried. I experienced no flaking.Removal: very easy to remove.Application: Did not clump (amazing). It did highlight every lash, and did provide some very good volume and length. I found one coat gave a more natural look, while a second coat was good for a dramatic look for evenings out on the town.CON: I ordered brown. It was more of a brown-black and is a bit too dark for me (I am a redhead with fair skin). If I could get it in a true brown or an auburn it would be absolutely perfect.All-in-all, I am very pleased with this product; I would recommend it to anyone that is not a redhead. I just wish I could get it in a more appropriate shade. « less

First let me say that I am extremely hard to please when it comes to beauty products, and mascara is one that i am especially picky on. I have fine lashes of nice length, and most "volumizing" formulas (such as any dior mascara) make my lashes look like a clumpy, goopy mess. Super wet, sticky, goopy formulas don't work for me, and neither do brushes where the bristles are too close together (they don't get between my lashes and kind of brush the mascara off at the same time as they put it on so it never builds up).This mascara is the best one I have probably ever used. It lifts my lashes so I don't need to curl them, it thickens them dramatically (and I mean super dramatic where everyone will be fixated on your eyes) and it doesn't clump or goop up or anything. You can just put on 2 coats like normal if you want to just look great in a daytime situation, or you can let it dry a little between as many coats as you want and build the drama to traffic stopping status. If you want to have the same impact as fake lashes without actually using them, this is a great mascara. I'm surprised it isn't more popular- but that's ok, I like having the best eyelashes in any situation. :-) « less
