Glad that i got this as GWP
HIGH IMPACT? Oh well...doesn't live up to its name
Smudges real bad, doesn't lengthen, clumps like spider legs within first coat...
Think this is one of the worst mascara i have ever used...

I love the thick brush of this mascara, it fills my lashes till the end and gives them lots of volume, which is amazing! <3 The product in the bottle dries out too fast though. Would buy again.

Good enough, but not my favorite. I always seem to have one of these around from a GWP. I'll use this once in a while, but I really prefer Clinique's Lash Doubling Mascara.

EDIT: I've lowered my rating on this from a 3 to 2 because it recently started to annoy me enough to throw it out. It makes my lashes thick and clumpy. I don't particularly like thickening mascaras because my lashes are thick enough already and they just look bad thicker - so normally I would have rated higher... but I never needed to throw away the infamous Maybelline Great Lash, and throwing this out made me think I shouldn't leave it as a 3.

A very good everyday mascara, minimal flakes, only a small amount of smudging, mainly right after applying on bottom lashes. I use a Ardell heated eyelash curler which I love before applying. If I want super lashes for evening I use the primer from one of my other mascara's before using High Impact and if I want it waterproof I use a coat of EL double wear over. Kind of a shame it takes all of these to meet my needs but with a little work I get the exact look and type of wear I need. The High Impact is easy to remove, no pulling out eyelashes or scrubbing, comes off easily with Cephil face cleanser or makeup remover. Reasonable price, if you check your area there is usually a gift with purchase or this may be in the gift.

I've used this mascara for years now and it was my HG until I discovered Colossal. In my opinion this is Clinique's best mascara for creating dramatic lashes that have fullness and length. Granted you will need about 2-3 coats. I get the best results when I apply primer first. I like to keep this product in the stash! It's a good buy.

A friend gave this to me after she received it as a GWP. I really love this mascara as I only needed two coats to give me beautiful thick and long lashes. I did find after 3 hours that my eye lashes lost it's curl and became droopy, plus my bottom lashes started to get smudgy. I don't think I would purchase this mascara as I have found other brands that deliver longer results.

This macara stays on well without smudging, and it washes off when I wash my face, so I don't have to muck around with special eye makeup removal. It doesn't make as dramatic a difference as the Lash Doubling mascara, but the drama doesn't seem that great if you get under-the-eyes smudges.

I'm actually really impressed by this mascara. I got it as part of a free gift from Clinique and tried it out of curiosity. It looks great! One swipe is enough to give definition to the eyes - of course that may be because I have pale eyes and lashes, so any black mascara does the trick - but this Clinique mascara is really liquidy so it glides on easily and smoothly - no clumps or touchups necessary. I like that it's really effortless, plus it looks fairly natural - my lashes but a little stronger and better. I will buy this when my sample runs out (which might be soon, because I see myself using this a lot).

I have this high impact mascara in black and I like that it brings volume to the lashes, darkens them making them more noticeable. The brush is pretty good too, it's easy to avoid smudges to the lids during application.
The downside is, most of the time coating the lashes once or twice doesn't get them black or give enough volume to my desire but applying another coat means a disaster in waiting. The lashes clump up and look so plastic because they're stiff. I know there are products out there that would not clump with multiple applications so I won't be repurchasing though its price is in the decent range.

This is a beautiful mascara if you want shocking volume and length! Leaves lashes dramatically thick, long, soft and slightly curled, mosty without clumps. My HG so far!
