Mascara Monday: Clinique Naturally Glossy mascara

| November 22, 2009 | 6 Comments

Here’s a mascara that was requested ages ago! Now I’ve heard of volume mascaras. And colored mascaras. And waterproof mascaras. But GLOSSY mascaras? I mean shouldn’t “gloss” only be used when talking about lippies? I don’t knowww…let’s see how this train rolls.

Clinique Naturally Glossy mascara


Price: 3 out of 5 ($14.00)

Packaging (Brush Wand): 2 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What it claims: “Gel-based formula defines lashes naturally. Lengthens, glosses, enhances. Lashes stay silky, pliant, clump and flake-free through multiple coats.” (source)

The truth: Well, what do ya know? It really is glossy!

What I loved about it: I gave me a good amount of length.

What I didn’t like: But I would have loved more volume.

Overall: When someone first told me that I should try a glossy mascara, I thought they were trying to be funny. I mean, honestly…what does that mean? A mascara with gloss? Uh? Wha? It sounds funny in speech but honestly…..this is a pretty cool mascara.

But you’d have to ask yourself…”When would I ever need to use a glossy mascara?” I couldn’t answer that question. From far away, you really can’t tell the difference between a glossy mascara and an un-glossy one. The silky effect is pretty cool but I guess I don’t see its point.

But who cares? There are a lot of “Uh?” products in the beauty world that I love! Application of this mascara was just so so. The wand was just…well….no me gusta.

It’s just….well, I guess its intentions are to coat and not separate and that’s fine but, hmmm but it wasn’t the easiest thing to use. I had to really press the wand up against my lashes to get a good amount of mascara on them.

BUT–after that ordeal, all else was easy as pie. I didn’t experience any flaking or clumpiness. It’s a light weight mascara so it doesn’t make you feel like you have 3 lb weights on your lashes. Cool!

Would I recommend it?: Ummm…not for anyone in particular. I mean, if you happen to grab it, I think you’ll like it. But it’s not a must have.

Has anyone tried this mascara?

And when would you ever be in the mood for glosssy lashes? Hmm….

A crazed mascara reviewer,

    I wonder if one could do a coat over voluminous carbon black…or if it would be a chemical spill. I like the idea though. btw love having Kenneth giving the guy side of things!
