Clinique's High Impact Curling Mascara

Hello everyone,

I hope you're all well and a very Happy Valentine's Day to you all.  Young, old, married, partnered or single I hope you're having a lovely day!

As promised I have a review on the Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara.  So here goes!

I love the original High Impact mascara, it gives lots of volume and lengthens beautifully without clumping.  The High Impact Curling mascara is just as lovely AND curls beautifully!  Goes on smoothly, each lash covered without any clumping.  And the result is VAVOOM!

It lifts each lash, with the richest, blackest black (black 01), coating each one, curling each lash.  It gives great volume too.  Really opens up the eye.  Please note, if you don't have a natural curl or have dead straight lashes it won't curl them really well.  It will hold for a little while but not for the whole day.  You will have to use an eyelash curler to create the curl you desire and then apply to your lashes.


It doesn't flake or smudge.  Ophthalmologist tested, safe for contact lens wearers.  I have tested it during our week long bouts of 40-46 degrees Celsius here in Melbourne. No smudging nor flaking!  I've yet to try  it in the gym.  That will be in the next few days.
All in all I'm very happy with this mascara.  It does exactly as it says it's going to do.  You don't need more than 2 coats.  In fact one is usually enough.  Removal is very easy coming off in little tubes.  Much like Kevin Aucoin's The Mascara and L'Oreal's Double Extend Beauty Tubes.  Easy!  Just add warm water or if you prefer your favourite eye make up remover.  

It retails here in Australia for $38.00 from the usual department stores but of course you can buy it overseas at any online store.  Check out, Sephora (for our American and UK friends) and loads others.  You clever people know how to use the internet and google.

So a big thumbs up from me.  Please let me know what you think about it. I'd love to hear your feedback.

Until next time
