I got this for free (gift with purchase) and at first I really liked it. I have naturally somewhat long, thick, and dark eyelashes so I don't usually wear mascara except for occassionally. I've had this mascara now for a few months and it no longer works at all. At first it was fine, nothing great, nothing bad. This weekend I used it and it was clumpy and made my lashes go straight no matter how much I curled them. My natural lashes looked way better without it. So maybe it just doesn't have a long shelf life, I don't know, but I wouldn't buy it.

This is the worst mascara I've ever tried. It was messy and didn't curl at all. It took forever to dry. I took it back. I didn't get what it was promoting. It gave me no results.

My HG mascara. This is great for girls with naturally long lashes, who just want a bit of lift and colour. Makes my lashes look really full and lush. I love getting it in the small (sample?) size, it lasts for ever and is just more portable. Definitely recommend.

I got a couple of samples of this mascara and a full-size one as a present and I like it. It lengthens my lashes quite well and adds a lot of volume. It doesn't really get clumpy if you apply only a couple of coats. It's a good mascara, but it doesn't blow my away. There must be something better out there!

Since I have a lot of mascaras I like to switch it up, but this is one I use probably every other day, because I just love it. Makes my eyelashes look fuller and longer but goes on nice and glossy and looks natural (:

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.
