Hi guys! I’m incredibly sorry for the absence lately, my personal life is going on a roller coaster right now. Also I’m getting married this week (!!!) and I’ve been so busy with getting the last details right! I will talk about my wedding make-up soon but for now we are going for a classic look with Estee Lauder. There is always a time and place for red lips and long voluminous lashes. You can wear them with quite some options like and this time I chose for a blue accent on the eyes. It contrasts really well and I think quite some people can wear this look well!

Let’s take a look at the eyes first! Estee Lauder released a new mascara called Sumptuous Infinite. Now I’ve never tried any Estee Lauder mascaras before but this one left me very impressed. The promise? Daring Length and Volume! Now I’m all for that with my little sad lashes! I always appreciate a mascara that does both length and volume but if I really had to pick just one I’d go for volume. Now I did a bit of research and found out that there are more versions of the Sumpteous mascara. We have the original version, the Extreme and Waterproof version. They all have one thing in common: volume! And that’s the same thing with Infinite too!

The mascara comes in a blue tube with gold details. The other versions are quite different from each other which I appreciate because you are less inclined to buy the wrong version (this happened to me more than once, grrrr!). The brush is made of plastic and is nit really skinny nor fat. It’s long and the bristles are all short except for one row that is longer. This gives you some type of comb effect which makes the seperation of the lashes quite easy.

Now let me tell you: I didn’t really know what to expect and since most mascaras fail to impress me I didn’t really had any big hopes. But holy moly! This mascara is incredibly volumising and not even just a bit! I’m not kidding around when I tell you that this is the most volumising mascara I ever tried! The formula is pretty brilliant, it’s not too dry nor too wet. It doesn’t have the tendency to clump and it gives your lashes an impressive boost. It does lengthen but the volume is the best part really! The only little drawback is the longevity: at the end of the day it starts to move a bit around (if you have oily eyelids). Mascaras are a very personal thing but I really do recommend this for anyone looking for volume! Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite mascara 6 ml for 28.96 €.

With dramatic lashes we also have a sexy red pout! I already wrote about the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks here and I really love them a lot. They are a big improvement from the other lipsticks and the colours and finish is spot on. The new sleek blue packaging looks so much more modern and luxurious too. And the fig scent? It’s gone! Instead we get vanilla. The formula is really long lasting and it feels like a very nice classic lipstick but with a lighter texture.

Envious 340 is a medium neutral toned red. It’s one of those classic red tones but it does have a very slight cherry tone to it. Depending on your own lip colour this might look a bit cooler or warmer but it’s quite true to colour in the tube. The finish is a cream. The pigmentation is outstanding just like the other shades I tried. I always put on red lipsticks like these with a lip brush, it’s just prettier in my opinion and it looks more precise too. Envious wears for a very long time and it leaves a stain. You really want to touch up with a mirror because it’s not one of those colours you can just put on in a rush. If you are looking for a classic red lipstick then you might want to consider Envious, it’s a very good solid pick! What I love most about the Pure Color Envy line is how very consistent the lipsticks are. They definitely belong to one of my favourite lipsticks now! Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy 3.5 g for 33.11 €.
