Clinique High Impact Mascara review, swatches and EOTDs



Clinique High Impact Mascara review

Hello All!!

Today, I will review Clinique High Impact Mascara which I got as a sample in my first Vellvette box. I absolutely loved whatever I got in the first box. I love mascaras alot as they can instantly open up your eyes, in fact a lot of us do feel mascaras are "a must have beauty product" even if you are a minimalistic person. 
I was excited to try this mascara ever since I got it and now that I have used it a lot of times, mostly in the eye makeup looks so, it’s high time to review it.

Price: This Clinique mascara comes for 1350 INR for 7 ml. This one is the sample size of 3.5 ml I guess.

About the product: New richly pigmented shade gives eyes instant brightening power-it's clinically proven. 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. Ophthalmologist Tested.

How to Use: Gently unscrew the wand (do not pump the wand to get more pigment on - that will only dry the mascara!) and then look a little down and gently run the wand on your lashes. Look up and repeat on the lower lashes.

Experience: I was all excited to use this mascara and same happens when ever I get a new one. This Mascara comes in a regular black bottle with the details and brand name written in silver letters. Wand has dense bristles reminds me of the wand of regular colossal mascara from Maybelline. It is straight not curved. 
The upper end is not much pointed so it makes using it on the tiny hair strands on the lower lash line a bit tricky. However, it does coats every upper lash strand perfectly and gives them length and thickness.

Once it sets or dries you can feel your lashes are little stiff, sealed in with the product. It is water proof up to certain extent only. The curling effect that it gives when I use it remains for a pretty long time. Clumping is there though, not up to the extent that makes it too obvious.

It indeed is a good mascara but then I have to say that it is expensive as these days markets are flooded with variety of mascaras. Most of them does give the similar lengthening, thickening effect at less than half or even one third the price of this mascara.:D
Here is the small demo: with and without.

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Pros:

  • Okay packaging.
  • Wand is dense enough to coat each lash strand properly.
  • Does give adequate lengthening and thickening
  • Holds on the curl for a longer time
  • Makeup remover is needed to completely get rid of this product which shows its good staying power
  • Clumping is less and does not go worse with more coats.

Cons:

  • Expensive for mascara
  • Wand is not tapered so coating the lower lash line hair is little difficult and you have to be careful.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5


Verdict:  Good mascara that does what it claims, do try it if you can splurge that much on a mascara however, the same effects can be achieved by any other cheap or budget friendly mascara that is way too cheaper than this.. (yes.. I am poiting towards Maybelline :D )
I would not spend that much on a mascara though..

    1. Same here dear, it does a good job but if we can get the same effects at one third the prices then it wont be wise enough to spend that much.

  8. It does have a nice effect after several coats but for me I get that effect with my HG so I have no intentions of trying other! I do completely agree that maybelline makes pretty amazing mascaras that are far more affordable, thanks for sharing!

  10. I have one sample from Clinique When I bought their lipstick .. I really love their mascara and i havent used anything like them. My fav mascara has been Loreal Voluminous Orignal ( not available in India) but Clinique High Impact has left Loreal far behind in the race. But stil I dont find it cost worthy for me , as I am never able to use the complete quantity of mascara before they dry up :(
