One of my favorite sample products to get is mascaras. You can get a lot of use out of that little tube and they're perfect to toss in your makeup bag. A mascara that has caught my attention lately is the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara.
What the Neiman Marcus website has to say about Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara:
A breakthrough mascara that creates voluptuous, extravagant and daringly full looking lashes without clumping, globbing or spiking.The mousse-like formula in combination with a new Brush Comb creates exceptionally lightweight yet rich volume and lift for gorgeous attention-grabbing lashes that refuse to be ignored.
A new patent-pending mousse-like formula contains new Micro-Lock Fibers that are exceptionally lightweight, yet give lashes glamorously rich volume and lift by filling in sparse lashes. The unique fibers are blended with tack-flex polymers that quickly coat lashes from root to tip keeping lashes, light and flexible while adding volume and weightless lift—all without clumping!
About Estée Lauder:
Beautician and business executive Josephine Esther Mentzer was born in New York in 1906. She married Joseph Lauder in 1930, and in 1946, they co-founded the renowned Estée Lauder and introduced a skin cream developed by her chemist uncle. Known for its technologically advanced skin treatments, transformative cosmetics, and classic fragrances, Estée Lauder has earned a global following of loyal fans.
This mascara has a great brush that is ideal for lifting and I was happy with the result. I have two coats on in the pictures above. It is available in two colors, Black and Brown. On the rest of the eye I used Stila Taffy as a base, Chanel Beige Lame on lid, and Le Metier de Beaute Corinthian in the crease and outer V. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Stray Dog and the Estee Lauder Mascara.
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara retails for $21.00 (for the full size) and is available at your local Estee Lauder counter at Neiman Marcus and other fine department stores.
