{Review} Clinique High Impact Mascara


**Picture courtesy of clinique.ca**

Clinique High Impact Mascara
Colours: Black/Brown, & Black ((I'm testing BLACK))
Size: 8g
Price: $18 CAD
Where to buy: Clinique.ca, Sears.ca, The Bay
Beauty Rating: 1/5

Their Claim: Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that's lusher, plusher, bolder. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you'll feel naked without it.
Likes: Made lashes look bolder and darker (but not anymore than other mascaras)
Dislikes: Felt heavy, not waterproof, expensive


My Experience: To begin, i should mention that i already have naturally long lashes and have been using the Avon waterproof mascara before i began testing this product.
The Clinique mascara did not do anything more for me than other previously used mascaras. It felt like any other mascara i've used before except this one felt a lot heavy on my eyelashes. The consistency is a lot thicker but it did not make my lashes any longer than other mascaras. The only thing the this mascara did was make my lashes feel heavy which was really annoying and uncomfortable. What i also noticed was that if i yawn or if my eyes become watery the mascara gets in my eyes and it sortof stings/burns my eyes arghhh!

I have to say that the avon waterproof mascara i use is significantly cheaper than this; the avon mascara is about $4 verses $18 for the clinique. Really disappointing.



My Verdict: It was not worth the money for me. Too expensive and doesnt live up to its claims.
Re-purchase: No

Woah expensive mascara. I usually like Clinique but for only stuff to cleanse my face with. Not mascara or lipstick or stuff like that. :/ Everything's expensive there blah.

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. It means a lot to me that you read my post. I feel like I should let you know that I don't usually express all that anger all of the time. I don't feel sad or angry 100% of my day.

Anyway, thank you again, and I think that whatever happens, I need to react to it positively from now on. Though, I will still keep writing my feelings down, but more privately.

You have a great blog btw! :D

yeah they are pretty expensive eh.. i like their foundation and blush but the mascara didnt work for me..

i totally understand what you mean girlie..sometimes you just have to let off some steam-- even if it's only once because we just gotta vent our feelings sometimes :)

Whoa, thanks for the review! The Clinique mascara is rather expensive. I've never really tried any Clinique products before because I'm unsure whether it actually works. >___<.

On a side note, thanks for your comment on my blog. It was very sweet and it definitely made me happy that you like my blog. (:

Hmmm I can't say that I'm a huge fan of clinique across the board. What other products have you tried from them that you liked?

@Tammy - I've used their blushing blush & superbalanced foundation which i really like so i was really disappointed with the mascara *sad face*
