It’s another Mascara Monday, ladies. Mascara Mondays is when we show tribute to the star of the blog in attempts to find *drum roll*…..the best mascara ever! Today I will be reviewing Clinique’s High Impact mascara. With a name like this….you would think that it would live up to its potential.
Price: 3 out of 5
Packaging (Brush Wand): 1 out of 5
Overall: 2 out of 5
What it claims: “ Volumizes and lengthens lashes for a lusher, plusher, bolder look. Pure, deep colour adds impact.”
The truth: High impact? I’m not too sure about that. Maybe medium impact. I have medium length lashes that need a GREAT mascara to make them pop. This unfortunately did not do this. Not only that but it didn’t even last throughout the day.
What I loved about it: I love the rich black color that this mascara provides. And that’s about it.
What I didn’t like: It just doesn’t live up to its name. It did not give me much volume and only a little bit of length.
Overall: I’m not a fan. The bristles aren’t defined so it is very difficult for me to run it through my lashes. It also gets a bit flaky and definitely didn’t stand up to the little crying spell I had the other day. Perhaps Clinique should re-name this macsara “Some Impact Mascara”. Plus, the price is not where its at for a broke sista like myself. $14.00 for a mascara is pushin’ it. I doubt that I would try this mascara again.
What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it?
Stay tuned for next week’s Mascara Monday when I review a drugstore brand mascara.
