I received this mascara in a GWP, and even though I love all Clinique products, this was not up to par. It volumized my eylashes...for a while. Then it just got clumpy and started crumbling into my eyes. Overall, I would not buy this product again. The only thing I'm going to use it for is to touch up my hair, because it is a very nice browny, black color.
From now on, I'm just going to stick with my Lash Doubling Mascara from Clinique.

my eyelashes are too long for this. it is quite lengthening.. not very volumizing. BUT that's referring to the brush it comes with (which I didn't like) but I replaced the wand with one from l'oreals 'voluminous' mascara (it screws on perfectly, so it won't dry out), and I like the results i got MUCH better. soft but volumized, (and not tested on animals)

Jet black. High volume. Medium long lashes. However it doesn't give that 'faux lashes' look that I'm trying for. I do love clinique products though, & this mascara was certainly not a let down.

I generally think that Clinique's mascaras are terrible. Even when I used Clinique exclusively, I always got my mascaras elsewhere. But I got this one in an eyeliner giftpack...and I really really like it. They've had this formula for a while, but I never tried it because of my opinion of their mascaras. But I am glad I tried this one! I get great boldness, with definition and some volume. I just wish they had a real brown color - not black/brown.

I had really high hopes for this product, since I usually love clinique mascaras, I thought I would give this one a try. I got this product in black/brown, and it gives volume to your lashes, but the formula is not that great. It smudges really badly!
I don't know if this happens to others, but when I yawn my eyes water a little (it looks like I'm crying haha) and then when I look at myself in the mirror I see smudges around my eyes and I barely teared up!
I guess if you are looking for a mascara that comes off easily this is for you, but I wouldn't think you would want to pay the $14 for it.

This, in a tie along with Clinique's Inimitable waterproof formula, is the best mascara I've found. My lashes are naturally rather long, so I begin with a bit more than others have and therefore cannot say whether it'll transform you from sparse to lush. For me, however, it provides great definition with added volume and length. No clumps and a perfect jet black hue--the price is reasonable as well.

I am a big fan of Clinique, esp their creams and lipsticks. I got this mascara in Black and was expecting so much from it. I wanted it to be worth the 14 bucks I paid. The first week, I used it every day - really liked it! BUT, as that week went by, it really stopped working so well. You cannot build it up for more volume. It is pretty dark and makes your eyes look sexy and all, but it really feels uncomfortable when I wear even one coat, let alone 2 or 3. It is too watery, which kills my already-curled-before-mascara lashes. I really like the packaging (I DO wish Clinique named it smth better than "high impact mascara") and the wand is average, It lengthens with minimal volume, and it does clump, which is a big no no for me. So much for its high brand name, and expensive as heck. Not very satisfied with it in the long run. Lashblast works better in all areas, cheaper (better than 1/2 price) and its a drugstore produc for heaven's saket!!!

Hmm...not a fan of this one. I found that it clumped my lashes and made them look scraggly and lumpy. I will deffinatly not be repurchasing. Even though it made my lashes long, they just looked horrible and it was overly noticable that I was wearing mascara, i like my lashes to look relativley natural when i put mascara on and this just looked bad.

Its high impact alright. ... It makes me look like a raccoon....

Smudges like hell. Maybe its because i got a gwp, but it sucks... take my word for it...

It does volumize a little, but it clumps pretty badly, so when i comb my lashes through to get rid of the clumps, it flakes, and the voluminous-ness goes away...
