Clinique High Impact Mascara Review

image

I love falsies! But lately I’ve been on the lazy side and haven’t really been feeling like applying any. No big deal! I had a couple tubes of mascara lying around that I’ve never opened. Perfect time to try them out! First up, Clinique’s High Impact!

I bought a Clinique set a while ago at the Cosmetics Company Outlet for like $15 which included some eye makeup remover, eyeshadow and blush palette, mirror, bag, and of course this lovely full sized beauty! Yes! All of that for $15! This usually costs $15 alone!

This mascara comes in a large green tube with the product name imprinted in silver with a long silver cap. It’s not the worst but it’s not that appealing either. That doesn’t bother me though! It’s pretty sturdy and I don’t mind a little green. 😉

The wand is a pretty nice size and the applicator is pretty long so you can really get in there! The bristles are very dense. Almost a little too dense at times.This wand can pick up A LOT of product at once. I always wipe the excess off any mascara but I was wiping off globs with this one sometimes.

I have short, thick and curly lashes and this formula seems like its pretty great at giving my lashes a gorgeous lift but the wand may cause clumping and sometimes doesn’t separate well. The only thing negative I can really say about the formula itself is that it can make your lashes a little firm. Not a big deal for me but if you’re looking for super soft luscious lashes after a coat of mascara this isn’t it!

But don’t count it out just yet! I plan on picking up some other mascara wands to see if it really does make a difference. Either way the results will probably be amazing! Check out the before and after!

Amazing improvement in just two coats! I don’t really like the thick wand but I love the way this mascara transforms my lashes! I can’t wait to try it with a less dense wand!

Night Out!

So over the weekend I finally decided to drag my little self out of bed and go out for some drinks and fun! I forgot to get a pic of my outfit (silly head!) but I did manage to take plenty of makeup pics of course!
