Clinique High Impact Mascara Review

Clinique High Impact Mascara (Rs 1600 approx) available at Clinique StoresClinique High Impact Mascara review (2)Clinique High Impact Mascara review (3)“New richly pigmented shade gives eyes instant brightening power-it’s clinically proven. Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that’s lusher, plusher, bolder. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you’ll feel naked without it. Ophthalmologist Tested.”

For someone like me who has almost non-existent lashes, a mascara can be a game changer. I have straight pointy lashes and I always get hard time while curling and lengthening them. I received Clinique High Impact Mascara as a press sample and decided to give it a shot.


Formula of Clinique High Impact Mascara is neither liquid nor thick, just the right consistency. Brush is quite dense, the kind of brushes volumizing mascaras come with. I have to scrap the brush before applying it on lashes, since it carries quite a lot of product on the tip. I curl my lashes before applying any mascara and Clinique High Impact Mascara hold the curls very well. I don’t apply more than one coat otherwise my lashes start feeling stiff and uncomfortable.

Clinique High Impact Mascara provides length and volume both. I love how a single coat works amazingly on my short lashes.

It doesn’t clump and coats all the lashes equally. However I have observed some flaking after couple of hours, the formula of Clinique High Impact Mascara flakes and gets into my eyes and that’s really irritating !

I am not sure if the formula is waterproof since its no where mentioned on the tube, but its definitely smudge proof. I have worn it for maximum 7 hours comfortably.

That’s how a single coat looks

Overall Thoughts

I really liked Clinique High Impact Mascara and would love to buy full size when I start wearing mascara daily. It definitely gives length and volume both. Even shortest and straightest of lashes look curled and defined. Only downside is that the formula tends to flake and gets into eyes after sometime.

Ratings : 4/5

    I used this a few months back when they gave me a free sample. I like it but the thing is – I am a very unfaithful girl when it comes to mascara. Currently on the verge of ending the Elizabeth Arden one and will move on to Loreal or Rimmel, depending on my next pick.
