This is my HG of mascara. Fortunately I was born with long lashes but when I wear High Impact people ask me if I'm wearing false eyelashes! I have tried Lancome Defincils and my cheaper standby L'Oreal Voluminous but I always come back to High Impact.
I seldom buy the same mascara twice, but this is the 5th time I bought the HIM so that deserves a review. I have Asia lashes meaning stiff and rather sparse, luckily I have some lenght. However, I always double this mascara with Clinique's Lash Primer and the results are nice, intense and clump-free lashes. It's also e very supple formula which spread out beautifully. If you need extra lift, I'd rather recommend ModelCo's heated lashwand over any mascara...
I am on a quest for a HG mascara for my short, thin, straight, blond lashes. Tall order, I know. To add insult to injury, I live in a dry climate, so mascara dries up quicker and I don't like to shell out major $$ for a mascara that will dry up before the tube is up. I had high hopes for this one based on some MUA reviews. It builds nicely, isn't clumpy, has nice color. But it kills all curl, and really doesn't thicken or lengthen all that much. Oh well. My search continues.
It provides extreme thickening and it is able to hold a curl well. Reasonable price. It does smear and smudge with yawning, so the staying power is bad. It does make my lower lashes pretty and separated and it is easy to apply to my lower lashes. It's not clumpy. The lengthening is not great. The price is quite reasonable. In reality, this mascara deserves a 3.5 rating.
Im really surprised by this mascaras 3.5 average rating! I loved this mascara the first time i used it, and although ive tried others (dior and benefit to name a few), ive always come back to Clinique. Builds thick but separated lashes, does not smudge (even on my very oily skin) and it also lifts lashes beautifully, great for small eyes! On my second tube, I will no doubt buy more! My only criticism is that i dont think the dark green/black glittery packaging is very classy, but its minor enough not to lose a lippy!
After trying numerous mascaras I'd have to say this is one of the better ones. I'm a little fussy, but I think this one thickens sufficiently.
The color was nice and at first I thought I found my HG mascara. But a couple of weeks later it got all clumpy and gooey. The brush started to get ruined too. Was dissapointed.
Ladies, for those of you who have lashes like mine (asian -- short, thin & straight) & want to try a good mascara, the one that has been good to me so far is Clinique's high impact mascara. Sure, it clumps slightly on the brush and you have to take the extra minute to apply but it never smudges, it lengthens, thickens & by the end of the day, even after I excersize, it still stays exactly where I put it -- on my lashes!
Absolutely gorgeous mascara! I think it's definitely the best on the market, it lengthens, volumises and gives a real oomph to the lashes. It gives a real false lash effect so I don't wear it everyday, but if thats the look you want, this is the mascara you should buy! Brilliant.
One of my favorite mascaras, loved the brush and the way my lashes looked.
