FOR SENSITVE EYES
I've always had trouble with finding a mascara that doesn't make my eyes itch, so I decided to try Clinique. I'm almost out of this mascara and I haven't had any issues with it yet. The only thing I don't like is that is smudges if you wear two coats. Besides that, a great pick for sensitive eyes!
Wet, Workable, Volumizing Mascara
This was the first mascara I have ever used when I was 17, and continue to use 6 years later. This barely lengthens my short lashes but that's alright, since I wear glasses and prefer not to have my lashes swiping against my glasses when I blink. But this mascara certainly adds volume to my lashes in three separate swipes, without weighing them down or uncurling them. The formula is thin and wet, so clumping is practically nonexistent when applying unless I wait too long before adding extra coats. It does take a little while for the mascara to dry after applying, but in the mean time it gives me the chance to brush through them and separate the lashes, which the wand does nicely with the wet formula. My lashes also remain soft throughout the duration of wear, and the mascara is easy to remove at the end of the day.
This is an amazing mascara. And it's amazing for my wallet.
It lasts all day, but comes off when you want it to. It does give a lot of 'impact'. :D
I love love love this mascara so much.
Plus it was actually the first one I ever got :O (of course I have new ones now) but the only reason I gave it 4 1/2 stars instead of 5 was that it gets a bit flaky after a while.... I shouldn't be able to touch my lashes and have a black mess on my hands even after wearing for a long time...very...flaky.
But if you don't mind it ... go for it! :D
Flaky but otherwise average, not worth the price
I got this mascara (full-size) in a christmas gift-set a couple of years ago. In most ways I found it to be just your average mascara. I have pretty long lashes by nature, so lengthening isn't really an isue for me, neather does I have sensetive skin, so the "pureness" of the product isn't a must for me neather. As for color and volume, it did give a fine color payoff, but the price for volume is clumps. And after a few hours it started flaking to my under-eye area - not nice. So all consideret, I didn't like it. And I wouldn't pay the expense for it.
I've tried many of these from Clinque gift with purchases. I really like this mascara! It has a great classic wand and the stopper on this mascara doesn't leave too much fomula on the wand. The fomula is just right, this mascara can hold a curl and also you can build many layers with this mascara. The only thing is that this mascara isn't that stay proof. Sometimes I find that I will have some smuges on the bottom of this eye if i'm wearing this mascara for the whole day. I find that this is one of the mascaras that give you great volume without clumping AND your lashes are actually nice and soft even after 2-3 coats. This is a nice mascara for every wear but if you are looking for lots of drama or a high imact this mascara will not give you that!
Great for everday use!
I love the look of this mascara, the results are long, natural and soft. I don't think the results are anything dramatic, but if you're looking for great length then this a a good pick. One of the best aspects of this formula is how easy it is to remove, yet how long lasting it is throughout the day. Plus, for a high end brand the price is great ($14.00), thats only a few bucks more than some drug store brands! If you're interested in this, but don't have access to Clinique try Maybelline Full N' Soft, its very similar!
