Estee Lauder Lash Primer Plus & Sumptuous Mascara Review

One thing that I'm always on the hunt for is the perfect volumizing mascara. I recently reordered the Bronze Goddess perfume (review coming shortly) and as a freebee I received this Lash Primer Plus & Sumptuous mascara from Estee Lauder. I have never tried any of the Estee Lauder mascaras and I was really pleased with the results. The star product in this duo is the Lash Primer Plus without question.

The primer alone helped to build length and volume before adding the mascara to darken the lashes. I have tried other primers and the biggest difference between a drugstore primer such as Maybelline XXL and a department store primer like Lash Primer Plus is the consistency and the thickness. The department store primers tend to be thinner yet they produce a naturally voluminous result. The drugstore primers tend to get thicker over time which can result in really heavy handed applications. Both are great options and make a noticeable difference in the end result of your lash look.

As for the Sumptuous mascara, I would say pass on it. It did not stand out as anything special or better than other mascaras I have tried, especially with the department store price tag. It clumped slightly after several applications and I ended up using a plastic bristle wand such as L'Oreal Paris Million Lashes to comb through and separate. 

If you are in the market for a primer check out Estee Lauder's Lash Primer Plus here.

I have a special treat for hunger game fans tomorrow! I'm just finishing it up this afternoon.
