Clinique new high impact extreme volume mascara

No Mascara, No Make Up.

That’s my rule! Just a coat of mascara can change your look. 
Finding the perfect mascara isn’t easy. I’ve tried so many different brands. I hated most of them. Others were just ok. Lately I have found two that I really love and it’s time to start reviewing them.
Today is the perfect moment to share my thoughts about Clinique‘s new High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara. I haven’t tried any Clinique mascara before and I was very curious about this one.

What it claims: With every stroke, the over-the-top brush wraps lashes in instant, jaw dropping drama. This larger-than-life formula is also safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Ophthalmologist tested,too. (source)

What I love: It gives extreme volume with just one coat. I really appreciate it when I don’t have to apply two or more coats of mascara, especially when I am in a hurry. I didn’t face any flaking or smudging issues or spidery lashes effect.

It contains hyaluronic acid, panthenol and hydrolysed wheat protein, ingredients that keep your lashes moisturised and flexible.
I’ve been wearing it for hours and I can tell you it lasts long without giving you that awful panda look. You can easily remove it with a regular eye make-up remover.
What I didn’t Like: The tube! At the beginning I was in love with the packaging: a silver, clean and sleek tube and a lid that closes with a click-click system that reassures that no air will dry your precious mascara. But then I noticed the wide stopper that allows way too much mascara on the brush and the tube and creates a big mess.

The wand is huge and I was scared it would be hard to manage and I would paint my entirely eyelid black. I was proved wrong (thank God). In fact, the barrel of the wand is huge and wide, but the bristles are small, short and fine. It grabs every single lash even those tiny ones in the corner of my eyes. I find it hard to use on lower lashes, but I don’t mind ’cause I use a different mascara (Iàll reveal my little secret during the next days. Stay tuned).

The wand is plastic, which is a pro for me (I love plastic wands, do you?).

Overall, it is a good mascara and I love the formula and the lasting. Once I finish it (soon) I might buy a new one, but I would really love it if Clinique will replace that giant stopper with a smaller one.

Available in one shade, Extreme Black, and it costs 29.90€
