The Estee Edit Edgiest Up & Out Double Mascara
The Estee Edit Edgiest Up & Out Double Mascara comes with a large bristle brush for volume and length (step 1), plus a smaller rubber brush on the opposite end, that you use as step 2 for lifted lashes. Together this dynamic duo produces mega results!
On the larger brush side, this mascara's fragrance-free formula features tiny hair-like fibers that attach to your natural hair, leaving lashes looking notably thicker and longer. Unlike many other "fiber" mascaras that we've tested, surprisingly this one didn't flake.
The shorter brush features the same formula, but for whatever reason the fibers aren't as detectable here (perhaps there's just fewer of them). The small size of the brush makes it easy to reach the base of your lashes, and as you sweep upward, it lifts lash hairs as promised. We also found that this brush's mini proportions work great for nimble use on bottom lashes.
Together this duo does clump a bit, but it can easily be smoothed out. The formula is especially adept at holding lash curl.
Removal-wise, the smudge-proof formula dissolves/sloughs off best with warm water as opposed to makeup remover. Just keep in mind that if you apply multiple layers it takes longer to get it all off, and you want to be very careful not to pull at delicate lashes.

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.
