Clinique’s High Impact Mascara review

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.

    I never did like clinique’s mascaras!! They are terrible…

    I love the new one cover girl came out with..in the orange tube… Lash Blast?? Looks great on and does not clump at all!! You definitely gotta put like 3 layers of it to make your lashes long and full!!

    I wasn't a fan of Clinique's High Impact.

    It clumps, and looks horrible.
    However I have two, one's dried out a bit, but I think it works better that way, gives lenght and seperates, can't wait for the other to try out.

    I also have High Impact Curling Mascara from Clinique, that one's a lot better.

    Aw I'm sorry it didn't work for you. But, I don't understand? It worked WONDERS for me, (like i said before) Its my HG mascara and I have (2in) Long, layered lashes, this makes mine look SO SO SO much better & I have sensitive eyes especially now in the allergy season, and this has never flaked or ran for me. I compare this to voluminous but (for me) This is 1OX better. Anyways, thankyou for getting to my request so soon.

    I would say this mascara is okay i definetly apply multiple coats but after that effort it doesnt pay off and it looks like you just dumped a bunch on your eyelashes and it doesnt lengthen them much. I get a package from clinique and this comes in it i always end up buying some of the maybelline one by one volume express mascara that stuff works wonders. It really defines your lashes and i cant even remember the last time it clumped on me.
