CLINIQUE HIGH IMPACT CURLING MASCARA REVIEW

*This is a free PR sample – tester packaging (2,5ml)

PROS:

+ Intense black

+ Very pleasant on the eyes

+ Lasts all day without smudging

+ Perfect texture, neither too dry nor too wet

CONS:

- too big brush = too many products (if you do not remove the excess product and apply mascara in speed you’ll get sticky eyelashes and mascara all over the eyelids)

On first application I despised it, as the formula is very thick it made my lashes clump together like nothing else I have ever seen! I have a real love/hate relationship with this one:

1. Because of the thick formula, you have to make sure all excess product is off the wand, and even then have to be extremely careful not to apply it too heavily, but then the appears is like most high street brand mascaras – simple day look lashes.

2. If you go straight from the tube you can pull OK look for lashes but it takes forever to get them like that and it will get all over your eyelids.

I didn’t think that this mascara did a lot for me.  I did not notice any thickening of my lashes nor did it provide a huge amount of curl for me (but I can not say for sure because my lashes are naturally curled).  In terms of curl I think it did just as much as a mascara that does not have a curved brush.  Personally I don’t think that a mascara with a curved wand makes your lashes more curved than a mascara with a non-curved brush, but that’s just me.  I don’t think I would buy this mascara.

Overall I’ll say 6/10.

  1. i ja imam love-hate odnos s ovom maskarom, s tim da je za moj ukus i premokra. kad imam vremena i strpljenja, da se uistinu lijepo nanijeti, no realno, nemam 10 min za nanošenje maskare, tako da ju isto ne bih preporučila ni kupila

    • Tocno to, a takav potencijal. Meni je skroz super to sto znam uletiti pod tus i uopce nemam dvije crne “sljive” pod očima od razlijevanja, vec se maskara skine u nekom skroz cudnom obliku poput gumenih navlaka za trepavice, skroz lako. Toliko pluseva i onda takav promasaj s cetkicom, steta.

  2. Nisam probala iako sam čitala podijeljena mišljenja.
    Moram priznati da mi se jako sviđa efekt na slikama a i tvoje oči :)

    • Lijepo izgleda i obozavala bih ju, ali za sliku sam se mucila sigurno 10 minuta da trepavice razdvojim i rasporedim proizvod po njima. Na kraju je super ispalo, ali stvarno ne mogu reci da ces ju nanijeti u trenu i da izgleda bombasticno. Vrlo je slican efekt na mojim trepavicama davala Dior Show New Look maskara, a nije zadavala muku s previse proizvoda i mrljanju po kapcima. Znam da volis Dior pa mozda pomogne usporedba ;) :*
