Brand Overview

We’ve had great results with Lauder’s other Sumptuous mascaras, and this one continues the trend thanks to its all-around excellent performance.

With most waterproof mascaras you get appreciable length, but then you have to trade off on the thickness. That’s because the ingredients that add thickness to lashes don’t always hold up well, and in a waterproof formula, holding up is the goal. In this case, you can have the best of both worlds without clumps or flaking during wear.

You’ll see impressive results with just a few strokes, and you can keep building for fullness and definition without creating spidery-looking or spiky lashes. True to claim, this is waterproof.

  • Lengthens and thickens equally well.
  • Great results with just a few strokes—and no clumps.
  • Doesn’t flake or smear during wear; is waterproof.
  • Defines and adds fullness with minimal effort.
  • Expensive (you can find great waterproof mascaras at the drugstore, too).

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: Yes

Estee Lauder At-A-Glance

The history of Estee Lauder goes back to 1946, when the woman who created the brand (and for whom it is named) began selling creams and lotions made by her chemist uncle. From its humble beginnings, Estee Lauder has grown to become a multibillion-dollar company whose products are sold all over the world and advertised in just about every fashion and women's lifestyle magazine available.

The biggest compliment we can pay to the venerable Estee Lauder line is that their moisturizers and serums can largely be described as state-of-the-art. Though fragrance is often intrusive, but when it comes to formulary excellence culminating in products that give skin what it needs to function optimally, they are tough to beat.

When it comes to makeup, by and large the brand also exceeds expectations. Though there are some under-performing products (you can read more about them in our individual reviews), Lauder has a number of excellent options, most notably its lip colors.
