Estee Lauder Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara

Hello Again Ladies! Today, I want to put the spotlight on my all-time favourite mascara, :star: Estee Lauder’s Projectionist High Volume Mascara :star:.  I found this a few years back and since then have never even been tempted by any other mascara. So, let’s take a closer look.

Estee Lauder Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara

I have the older packaging, it is different now, but the formulation is the same!

Product Details:

  • Projects thicker, longer, more defined and lustrous lashes.
  • Creates sharp definition, drawing out tiny lashes with precision and separation control.

The Look:

A full sweep of thicker, longer, distinctly defined lashes.

Estee Lauder Mascara

The Brush:

ProDefinition Brush provides excellent traction to separate and coat every single lash.

The Bristles:

  • A blend of two fibers: Hollow fibers create a well to hold formula.
  • Solid rigid fibers comb it through and separate.
  • Lashes look clean, clump-free.

The Formula:

  • VolumAire™ formula is air-light, creates volume without weighing lashes down.
  • Hollow spherical polymers act like inflated balloons that volumize and lift.

The Color:

  • Pearl pigments mimic the shine and color of natural hair for a lustrous, healthy look.

Formula Facts:

  • Ophthalmologist-tested
  • Suitable for contact lens wearers.

Price:

$21 (~Rs. 1100).

I agree with and can vouch for every claim that they make, except for the “suitable for contact lens wearers” because I’ve never worn any ever, so cannot comment on it, but I’m 100% positive that a company like Estee Lauder would not make any false claims regarding that.

What I Love about Estee Lauder Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara:

    • It really does give a good volume.
    • It does not clump at all; just make sure to give it time to dry between each coat.
    • It truly coats even the smaller lashes towards the inner eye, that way you get a very evenly coated look, with every strand colored.
    • It is waterproof. I frankly have cried wearing this :cry: and it still didn’t run. I splashed water on my face and it still didn’t run.
    • I love its texture; it feels very creamy, but dries instantly.
    • It has a thin formula, so if you want a fairly natural look, one coat of this and it serves the purpose! As you can see in this image below, one swipe on the finger gave a lighter effect, but repeated swipes would give a blacker, more intense effect  (I personally love the intense effect more).Estee Lauder Volume Mascara
    • I love how I can even use it for a natural look if I wanted to. In this next image, the top eye has no mascara; the bottom one has just one light coat. I think it gives a very natural yet defined look.

Eyelashes

  • In its claim, it says “distinctly defined lashes,” so true! I’m sure it can be seen clearly in the image below, the lashes on the top are bear, the one’s on the bottom have 2 coats of the mascara; as you can see, they really look “distinctly defined” right?! :stars: and also see, no clumping. Gosh! I love this mascara so much! Lashes appear longer, thicker, blacker; and that is exactly why we buy a mascara, now don’t we girls? :inlove:

Mascara

What I Don’t Like about Estee Lauder Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara:

  • Truthfully, nothing, but if you twist my arm behind my back and pull my hair :phoolan: and force me into giving some negatives, I’d say it sure is waterproof, but when you rub your lashes when they’re still wet, the color starts to come off. So, if you cry after wearing this or splash water on your face; be careful while wiping your tears or the water (and I do hope those are tears of joy! :puchhi: ).  This is not really something that is a “con” of this product, but it would be true for any mascara, or eye product for that matter.
  • It does not curl the lashes, but in its defense, it never claims that it will. I use a curler anyway, so I’m good with this.

Would I Recommend Estee Lauder Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara?

Oh hell, YES! If what you want are longer, thicker, blacker, distinctly defined, beautiful lashes, then go for it! Give it a go, ladies. :haanji:

Rating:

6/5 :hihi: What can I say, it’s my absolute favourite!

good review, but its pricey for me for a mascara

Nafisa January 24, 2012 at 6:12 pm

:D it had to be 6/5! :D
Instead of getting 2-3 masacaras of lesser value, I’d say once just buy this 1. It’ll last a long time & it’ll be worth it! :)
