Love this product! The picture I posted (picture #8) was the mascara with only one coat, and it makes my lashes look so long, dark and full, yet so natural. The brush is quite big & easily picks up every lash. The mascara also feels really light on my lashes, and it never clumps on me. I naturally have large eyes with quite dark and somewhat long lashes already and this product accentuates that perfectly without making it look like I have spiders infested in my lashes. I would recommend this mascara for those like me, looking for a natural-looking mascara that will give lots of length, but I would not recommend this for those with rather short/thin lashes looking for incredible volume & the false lashes look. continued >>
I think that the brush on this mascara is really good, but the formula isn't. The brush has many small bristles so every lash really gets picked up, but the formula can't hold a curl at all. Perhaps this mascara would be better for someone with long, curly lashes already but not for anyone who really needs it. At $14.50, I wouldn't buy it again.
A very average mascara imo. It adds a decent amount of length and some thickness to lashes but nothing spectacular. Tends to get clumpy after multiple coats but didn't flake or smudge on me. Not worth the $18 Cdn. to me. I would not repurchase.
I am a mascara junkie and have tried sooo many! I have a full drawer of just mascaras... this one is definitely one of my favorites! I only have the little mini size because I got it in a gift set but I will definitely be going out to buy a full size tube. It volumizes and lengthens and makes them look dramatic which is what I look for in a mascara. I like my lashes to look like Im wearing falsies when Im really not. Thats what my goal is and I can achieve that with this mascara. Its a more wet formula but doesnt flake or anything on me and doesnt make my lashes feel super brittle like others.
I got a sample of this and absolutely loved it for about two weeks - nice black shade, thickens quite a bit (if you let it dry between coats) and lasts really well without flaking.
I had an allergic reaction to it after about a fortnight. Red, itching, sore eyes everyday. As soon as I stopped using this mascara, it stopped. So I don't know what is in it, but the chemicals in it must build up or something.
Definitely not repurchasing. Stay away if you have sensitivity issues.
High Impact Mascara.
This one is a classic. Easy and quick application. No smudges. Nice handle. Full looking eyelashes. Just one of these mascaras you can always rely on.
I love this mascara! It makes my eyelashes look Herculean. I always lightly roll the brush on a tissue before applying (I do this with any mascara) to remove excess that could cause clumping. It doesn't smudge or flake...except when it gets old. After about six months of use, which is a bit long for keeping a tube, it can begin to flake. That's my signal to buy a new one. I highly recommend this.
A sample size of this (40 oz) came free with Glamour magazine and although it's lasted a long time, it's not strong enough to use on it's own, and I had to layer it with better mascaras.
I've tried it two separate times. Glad it was a freebie w/ my Clinique gift with purchase. Very clumpy mascara, doesn't lengthen much, and mascara has short shelf life (entire tube of mascara dries out pretty quickly). Not worth my time and money!
I swear by this mascara! Compared with other mascaras that are in the same price range (~$15), this has been the best one I have ever used. It is not waterproof, but it is not runny. Also, do not be fooled by the skinny brush that looks very ineffective. In fact, I love this brush because it is not very clumsy, so I am able to easily apply my mascara without the need to use a credit card to prevent the brush from staining my lids. The bristles are also amazing at separating my lashes and making them look fuller, without the clumpiness of certain "lash plumper" mascara bristles/products. It is not a very dry mascara consistency, until you leave it on for a while, so the application process is great and the dried product is very light. So far, it has not pulled any of my lashes either, so the no-shedding is a plus. I just rated the packaging a 4 because the shape is very skinny and easy to drop.
