I really like this mascara in terms of volumizing, lengthening and defining although I seem to have a problem with my lashes sticking straight out with this. I use an eyelash curler and then apply this and the mascara seems like it uncurls my lashes as weird as that sounds. Have to recurl my lashes for a second time which isn't a big deal but I worry about accidently pulling my lashes out.

Love Love LOVE this mascara! I've been searching for a decent mascara for a very long time that can cope with my oily skin. I use clinique 3 step to calm down my oily pores and select my make up products carefully to compliment my skin type.

I love the travel size version of this as it fits perfectly in to my tinyest clutch bag for an evening out.

I find that this mascara doesn't clump and isn't too thin to not hold a curl. It can build up for a big wide eyed evening look or just one coat for a classy day look. Absolutely love it! x

I think I have a sample of this.

Doesn't give great length, but it does give volume.
More of a natural looking type mascara if you ask me.
Slightly clumpy, even with a lash comb.
It does alright for me, gives enough colour, volume, and a tad bit of length. Haven't tested it with a curler, I don't think.

But I doubt it'll be too great.
This mascara is average for me. If combined with others, I think this will be a high impact mascara though.

A little smudging, not a lot, I'd give this a 7/10 .

I've been looking for ages for a good mascara, and this is it. It doesn't give me huge supermodel eyelashes but it does make my eyes pop and gives them just enough volume and curl. However, I find it gets flaky by the end of the day and I have black smudges under my eyes.

Ok...I always want to try something new, i'm going crazy buying the most expensive beauty products or damn cheap ones so it's quite had for me to say what i'm gonna buy next. I've always liked Clinique...I think it's because of the simple design, average price (comparing to the other high end brands), kinda "healthy" feeling that create consultants in white robes and so on. Back to this mascara...I've never had this one in normal size...only in sample one. But i had like 5 of them, and all the time it's my HG!
ALWAYS works better than my mascara that i have in big size.
I had YSL and this one...it was better.
I had Lancome ...this one worked better!
and so on!...
I recommend to give it a try! Very nice classy brush, nice packaging and it works!

I got a sample from the store, and it used very well escept for its existance
it does not last long as my lancome's mascara, and in the afternoons I always looks like that I have been punched at eyes.

my newest HG mascara... it lengthens & gives me enough volume without getting clumpy. only thing is my lashes are SO nonexistant (blonde, short & sparse - the triple combo, my friend), i'll usually do my first coat with lashblast & then go back over with high impact. the effect is awesome. without any lashblast "priming my lashes" as i like to call it, meh, it's a pretty mediocre mascara, but i looove the two together!

I like this mascara a lot, it gives a lot of length, volume, and defines your lashes. I like the way that this mascara feels, it does not feel heavy on the lashes, its actually pretty light. Even with two coats applied, your eyelashes will look pretty natural and will not give you that spidery look. However for girls with stick straight lashes, this mascara may not be the best in the department for holding up your curl, its light, but it can wear down your curl if you apply heavy coats. What I don't like about this mascara is that it can clump, a tip to prevent then is to wipe the sides of the brush inside of the tube before you apply it on, therefore the bristols will stick out a bit more. Also the mascara can flake within 4 hours, and that's another flaw that I find with this mascara. Other than these two flaws, I like this mascara its good but its not great.

this is the best mascara that i've ever used! a few splash of warm water & *POOF* the mascara is gone! also, it separates my lashes as i'm applying it on so no more clumpiness & wasting money on a brush to separate my lashes.
