Clinique High Impact Mascara
Advantages: Looks fab, Long Lasting, Easy To Remove, Gives Length & Volume ETC ...
Disadvantages: Possibly Price ... & No Ingredient List For Allergy Sufferers!
Price: Around £16 - so not the cheapest mascara by a long shot!
Stockists: Clinique products are mainly sold in places like Debenhams & House of Fraser - they do also have a website clinique.co.uk - I guess that might be slightly cheaper than buying it in store! As I mentioned I got mine as a freebie so Im not 100% certain on that!!
Shades: This mascara comes in shades Black (the one I own) & Black/Brown.
Other Info: Promises to add maximum volume as well as giving your lashes definition and length - what more could a girl ask for?!
Packaging wise this is just simple and mini sized in my case - one thing I really liked about it as Im planning on taking it on holiday, although if you buy this in store I guess the tube would be larger. The packaging is darkgreen/black in colour and the information is printed in silver so no-one should have any problems reading all thats printed on there. As usual the information avout the product is printed all over the tube - cautions, shelf life (6M) and the brand and product shade - there are no ingredients on my tube (perhaps because I have the mini one) and although thats personally not an issue it might effect people who ahve allergies to ingredients found in this type of product. Opening is the same as normal, simply unscrew the top to reveal the brush attached ti the lid inside - nothing out of the ordinary there. Simple packaging and despite its mini size very effective for me - its still as easy to hold and use as regular sized tubes.
Im pleased to say the brush for this mascara is ... TOTALLY NORMAL! I have a problem when brands release mascaras with fancy shaped brushes that are designed to do all sorts and then 9 times out of 10 fail to deliver. Im much happier whenthe brush is just straight and the bristles are average - which is the case with this one. As the brush shape is so normal it makes applying it much easier for me as it seems to fit the natural shape of my lashes really well - and because its straight I can get to the pesky bottom and corner lashes with ease without smudging the mascara all over my face like Ive tended to do with other brands! Also the standard brush shape ensures just the right amount of liquid is picked up each time you use this meaning your not left waiting forever for your eyelashes to dry before you can go out or end up pumping the brush a million times because it feels so dry. The brush shape and ease of application is always a big bonus for me and this one definitely covers everything I wanted in that respect!
Im even more pleased to report that the end result on my eyelashes also looks fanastic - even if I do say so myself! Ive been looking for so long for a mascara that will work for both day and night looks - in the day for work when I want something a bit more natural and at night when I want something really striking. And I think I might have finally found the answer in this one! One coat of this in the morning for work just creates a wide eyed look - even on about 3 hours sleep after a cheeky drink the night before and two coats really makes my eyes look more dramatic and dark for the night when Im out partying once again hehe. This mascara I would say makes my lashes look darker and thicker than any other Ive ever tried before - it gives me a really dark, dramatic look without leaving behind any clumps or making me look too over the top. It also makes my lashes look at least twice as long as they do without mascara - people have even started asking me if I wear false eyelahes all the time because the difference is that noticable. Even I can see that this makes the world of difference to any look Im going for as it even makes me look more wide eyed and fresh - and even though Ive been alternating this with a few other brands Ive been trying out this one has remained one I will go back and use time and time again.
I genuinely cannot think of a single bad thing to say about this mascara - its easy to apply, looks great on, can be used in the day or at night, makes my lashes look thicker than ever and longer as an added bonus ... oh and its also easy to remove, a few quick wipes with a baby wipe and this is totally gone. Dont take that to mean that the look isnt long lasting though as Ive never had any problem with this clumping or flaking off my lashes throughout the day so its very hard wearing! I cannot recommend this highly enough as its probably the best mascara Ive ever tried and I'll 100000% be going back for more when my freebie tube runs out, I recommend all you ladies out there give this a go as well! 5*s from me because for once ... I have no critisms!
Thanks For Reading.
