Clinique High Impact Mascara
Advantages: Works well
I am not one for makeup but one product I am addicted to and I have so many mascaras I have lost count. After success with other Clinique products when I came across this high impact mascara I could not resist.
This comes like most mascaras in a twist of lid top which has the arm of the mascara attached. I was surprised as usually mascaras that offer to lengthen have big bristles that are wide apart but this one is not too big which is great for me as I tend to smudge my eyes on application with bigger brushes. Also they are not too far apart and all lined up in a neat row.
For £16 you receive an 8ml tube of mascara that is not too large in size and sits comfortably in your hand. You can purchase in 2 shades black and a black/brown colour.
When you take the mascara brush out of the tube you notice straight away the product is hardly visible you do not need to wipe away excess product it is set to go. Then simply run it through your lashes and coat them all and as you do so you can feel it separating your lashes while coating them in mascara.
It only takes a few seconds to coat your lashes as the brush is big enough to catch a lot of the at the same time then you just need to coat the corner lashes and application is complete. The consistency is not runny and not clumpy so it just coats the lashes lightly yet gives you the definition you would want from any mascara.
This mascara does deliver what it promises after I use this product my eye lashes look longer and a lot fuller. As I have small lashes it is usually hard to find mascara that can make my eyes stand out without my lashes looking like spider legs and all clumpy.
Normally with mascaras I have to get used to applying them before I can get really good results but from the very first time I used this because of its easy application and the brilliant results it delivered I fell in love.
This really does give you a high impact look but at the same time keeps it suitable so you can apply it for day to day wear.
I can put this on first thing in the morning and run around doing my daily routine and although it is less viable in the evening you can still see the product working to define your eyes. This includes me working full time and running around after 3 children which I find a lot of makeup products fail to deliver there long lasting results but I can always really on Clinique to deliver.
Although this mascara will last a quick downfall of rain and is waterproof in that sense it will not prove to be effective against anything heavier as has proved happen a few times being stuck at a bus stop with big black panda eyes is not a good look.
Like most mascaras I find that if I apply this is the morning I cannot re apply in the evening without completely removing the mascara as it does clump and make my eyes look messy. Although I do not go out often as I have 3 young children it would still be nice to be able to freshen up my make up without having to take the time to remove it all completely to re apply.
As this product lasts all day with no problem at all I was worried it would be a nightmare to get off but actually with some face wipes it comes off just as easy as it goes on. This leaves your lashes natural and ready to be coated again the next morning. There is no need for extensive rubbing or force just gently wipes the cloths over your lashes and the product comes away easily.
This is fantastic mascara easy to apply and lasts all day but the thing is there is many other cheaper alternatives available that work just as well to provide an excellent finish it makes you wonder if it really is worth that £16 price tag.
Summary: A great mascara at a price
