This is a really good tubing mascara. It stays put and won't run. However, it doesn't come off as easily as they say... It does take some effort with soap and water but it's well worth it.

This mascara rules. All others seem to smudge or clump but not this one. Looks pretty, lasts all day without smudging beneath my eyes, comes off easily with warm water. I do find that it goes on more smoothly if my lashes are a bit damp. This replaced my hg fiberwig when sephora stopped carrying it. Love that it's easy to find and not too expensive for the quality.

this is my staple makeup product. have been repurchasing so many times! it perfectly curls lashes, is available in brown color, and is not smudging. my eyes look perfect when I use it and the fact it is tube mascara makes it even better, I just take shower in the evening and it comes off itself. I hope they will never discontinue it!

I've been using this mascara for about 5 years now and I love it sooooooo much, I have straight lashes but I don't like curling them as I once read this debilitates your lashes (I don't know if its true or not, but I wanted to find a mascara that curled my lashes without an extra step or accessory). So I chose this one 'cause a friend of mine recommend it to me and as I tried it I fell more and more in love with it, I only curl my lashes when I want to really pump them up for extra drama, but the mascara alone will really curl yours lashes by itself. Each tube lasts me about 4 months. To remove it you could use warm water (heavy crying definitely will take it off) or your regular makeup remover product without much trouble. I also love that it doesn't leave a black dusty residue in your eyes as some other mascaras.

I give it a 5 bc it is the only mascara that doesn't smudge on me . It's a pain to remove bc it's warm water and cloth removal only bc it's tube mascara but if I have to go to a wedding or funeral it's the best.

Been using this Mascara for years. Loving the fact it can easily be removed with just warm water. Also really like the curved brush. My lashes are naturally curly so I don't really have an opinion on how well it holds a curl. It lengthens and feathers the lashes beautifully. When trying to decide between 4 and 5 lippies I chose the former because I wish it gave just a bit more volume. That can usually be dealt with by layering the product but then it sometimes clumps. Nothing that a good lash comb couldn't handle but it is an extra step.

Another Clinique mascara that did really nothing to me (like their High impact one...)
Well, perhaps it performed a bit better than the High impact (it actually curled my eyelashes a bit more) but again, it's nothing too impressive for me to buy. I used a sample found in one of their Bonus time.
It doesn't leave much of Panda eyes when the weather is warm/it rains etc, but sometimes if it's too warm, I do detect the faint black mascara-circle under my eyes. And no, it's not even near as good as the legendary EL double wear mascara, which is a bit more expensive, but actually performs much better.
It's great to have a sample of this, but I don't think I will rush to buy it as soon as it's over...

My lashes are naturally curled, long, and thick. This mascara made them short, straight, and clumpier than your average 14 year old girls eyelashes. Its horrible. I know how to properly apply mascara, how to achieve feathered look, dolleyed look, length, volume, winged... the formula is just gross and impossible to work with. it doesn't layer or build, it clumps the second you apply it, and its so wet... takes a long time to dry. Don't even TRY your bottoms unless you're going for that Pushed-in-a-pool look. I love clinique but I was truly disappointed.

i HATE this mascara. it somehow makes me look like i have 3 very long and very thin lashes (when in fact i have pretty good lashes- long, thick and full).
the formula is a little bit on the wet side. the brush is curved like a spoon the the bristles go shorter towards the tip. as a result you get too much product on the tip. it's weird because that way most of the product gets on the lashes on the inner side of your eye.
can't say anything about staying power because i take it right off every time i decide to give it another try. i'm glad i didn't pay full price for this.
the color is pretty: i got the black- brown version (no. 2) and it's a rich dark brown that looks like black but not as stark against my super pale skin.

This is my "Holy Grail" mascara! My eyelashes are short, curly, and unruly. I have tried so many mascaras, yet none of them gave me the desired look.Even though I have naturally curly eyelashes, I decided to test the mascara just for the hell of it at the Clinique counter. To my surprise, with each mascara stroke, my unruly curly eyelashes were 5x longer, separated, and super black. Whoa! I bought it right away!
Since I have been using the product, more and more men have complimented on my eyes. One guy had told me that he was drawn to me because my eyes were so seductive. Ladies, my eyes are not that seductive...it's the freakin' mascara! It gives one a flirty ''doll-eye'' look.
The only downside to this mascara, I wish for an attractive packaging . It's a boring grey cylinder tube. I probably should not complain because packaging changes may also mean expensive mascara; which it is already at a reasonably priced compared to other prestige makeup brands.
Disclaimer: This is a very wet mascara and takes warm water to remover.
