I’m a big fan of Clinique mascara – it seems to last a long time, and always delivers in terms of volume and colour. So I couldn’t wait to try the new High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara and find out if it lives up to the VERY high expectations promised by its name.
The wand is pleasingly chubby and multi-dimensional which makes it easy to apply the mascara quickly and coat the lash from root to tip.
And the effect is instant – no clumping, just long, lifted lashes, perfectly separated. And the dome tip makes it easy to reach the tiniest corners of the lid. Beautiful lush lashes, non?
For me the true test of a mascara though is how long it lasts. I’m pleased to report that this one took me through a whole day at work and the office party afterwards.
I don’t like false eyelashes (what a letdown when they come off) so this is a brilliant way to give your own lashes maximum impact. Perfect for all those New Year parties, and beyond.
