Clinique High Impact Mascara

Retailing for $25 at Sephora this mascara is available in two color choices.  This mascara is excellent in that it won’t irritate your eyes.  The formula is thicker than many on the market but not muddy or cakey.

The wand does a great job of getting every lash, and it glides on without clumping or smearing.  This little beauty will also last all day and all night without any flaking or smearing.  Which is impressive and I am very grateful to the phenomenal Dave Lackie who took the time to send me this excellent product to try.

The downside with this mascara? Do not cry! Do not get your face wet because it will run everywhere. Sweating is also not a good idea.  This is the perfect mascara for business meetings and lunches, lovely dinners and trips to the art gallery.  I was wearing this mascara when I got the news of my father’s passing, and at the end of an ugly cry, I looked like a demonic clown.  Not flattering.

Is it worth it? The formula is wonderful.  Great for everyday wear.  I have worn it daily for 50 days, and I really don’t have anything against it.  I do think that a L’Oreal Lash Paradise would do the same thing at a fraction of the cost.  I love the company and the product lines that they offer, I never have any worries about how my skin is going to react with them. Please let me know if this is a go-to or a no-go product for you.
