Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara
Advantages: Nice wand, coverage
I love the Clinique range of make up and beauty products. Although they are expensive in my opinion they are extremely well made and work very well for me. I use a number of their products, from the toners to the compacts and lipsticks and the latest product of theirs I have tried and now love is their Clinique high impact curling mascara.
Clinique is one of the world's largest suppliers of prestige makeup and fragrance products. It was launched by Estee Lauder Companies in August 1968. I have always viewed Clinique as an upmarket product and one that is known to have a very good reputation.
I was coming to the end of my Benefit mascara and although I really do like that I also needed to buy some Clinique Clarifying Lotion and got a free gift if I spent over a certain amount so decided to get one of their mascaras. I wear contacts quite a bit of the time and I always manage to get some eye makeup in my eye somehow but was interested to read that this mascara was suitable for contact lens wearers so I decided to give it a go.
I was also intrigued by the curling capabilities of this mascara as this is what it is specifically designed to do. I have quite long eyelashes that always stick out. I do curl then with a curler in the morning when I put my makeup on but sometimes if they are not in a cooperating mood later in the day they will tend to have lost their curl and look and I don't really like how they turn out. So, I thought this might be an interesting way to add a bit more curl to my lashes. I had never used this kind of brush before on a mascara so it took a few days to get used to it. The brush on this mascara is curved and look a lot like the curve of your eye. I have always used straight mascara brushes in the past and so I found it a bit tricky trying to get to all the lashes in the beginning but once you get the hang of this brush it is really simple. I still curl my eyelashes to begin with and then use the brush. THe nice thing is that the brush will then work with the natural curve of your eyelid and eyelashes and coats the eyelashes really well.
Clinique say that this mascara will, help coax lashes to a long, bold, upturned look, without a pinch, pull or tug. The smudge, flake, smear-resistant formula holds for up to 24 eye-opening hours. I definitely feel no tugging when I apply this mascara. It covers well and does not leave any clumps. I never put too much not he brush int he first place for it to clump as I always clean the brush off at the top to stop too much product getting on my eyes in the first place. I suppose I did notice that my eyelashes were lifted up a little bit and fanned out a bit more than usual and overall I was pleased with the results I got.
I bought the mascara in black as that's the only colour I use. A 8ml tube costs £15 which is somewhat expensive but if you compare that to say a mascara from Benefit or another one of the good makeup brand ranges it is not too expensive. The mascara comes in a shiny silver container and looks very sleek in your make up bag.
Apparently it is ophthalmologist tested so it is safe for eyes to which is an important consideration although you should still change your make up every few months as after that you can get infections from make up that is too old and has been opened for too long.
One I recommend!
