Recently, most of the mascaras I have been keeping in heavy rotation have dried out and required tossing. I had to replenish my supply and when I saw the nice bonus gift Clinique was offering, I knew it was time to revisit one of my favorite mascara brands.
I was always a fan of the High Impact Mascara so this curling version intrigued me. The brush is curved, much like the Falsies Mascara wand, but thinner. Be warned that the formula is very wet so it can get messy quite easily, but once it dries this mascara is not going anywhere. I like that it is long wearing and doesn’t smudge, even when I use it on my lower lashes. But, it is a bit of a challenge to get off and it flakes off very messily when confronted with eye makeup remover.
My main complaint with this mascara is that it does not layer well. It dries very quickly and clumps up easily, which means that it does not provide as much drama as some other mascaras. For day time use, I really like this High Impact Curling Mascara, but I think there are better formulas out there if you want really dramatic lashes. This particular product does not lengthen or volumize as well as some of my other favorites.
