Great affordable mascara!

My mom and I swear by this mascara! We both have dark hair, but oddly blonde and colorless lashes and brows. We don't leave the house without doing our eyes and lashes, and she and I always have this in our purse and a small size in our makeup kits at home. It is a perfect consistency mascara that lasts and doesn't deposit little flecks under your eyes. It lengthens and volumizes equally, which I need because my lashes are short and sparse. I recommend it over other brands in the $20-$35 range.

Love it!

Finding a mascara that doesn't flake or smudge throughout the day is super important. This mascara enhances my lashes, makes them look thick and dark and doesn't end up under my eyes by the end of a busy work day. It comes off pretty easily in the shower or with makeup remover. I use this as my primary mascara.

This product is definitely worth the money!

Although Clinique is an expensive brand, it certainly delivers what it promises. My lashes curled even without a lash curler, although I liked the effect of using the curler beforehand anyway. Plus, Clinique uses trustworthy ingredients and doesn't test on animals. This is definitely a high-quality product. Performance The formula gave my lashes a slight curl immediately after applying, and didn't crumble when the mascara dried. I only needed one coat to get a curled effect. I like my lashes with more volume and length, so I use one coat of my favorite mascara under this one to get the best effect. The product lasts a long time, too, so the curl doesn't fall out during the day. Ease of Application It's super easy to apply and doesn't clump or crumble. I use it over another brand of mascara and it still makes my lashes look naturally curly. It's a little difficult to wash off with just plain water, even if I don't wear any other mascara underneath the product. I just use eye make-up remover and it comes off easily, though.

Great all around mascara

I don't know if I would call this mascara "High Impact". I have very wimpy, barely there eyelashes and because of that I never leave the house without curling them and adding mascara. I've used Clinique for years and love most of the ones I've tried. However this particular one was the first one I tried and after all theses years I still love it and it's my go to mascara. This is just a great all around mascara, again maybe not "High Impact" but will add volume, hold the curl pretty well, not a lot of lengthening and formula does not clump. But there's one thing I noticed about all Clinique's mascara's is that they don't run easily. You get a little teary eyed or a few drop or rain or snow in your eye, no worries you won't turn into a racoon right away! Also it's not harsh/hard to take off at the end of the day, meaning the few lashes I have don't get pulled out and Clinique is know for their products being great to people with sensitivities.

this wasn't absolutely horrible, but it was by no means a cult favorite product. I was actually pretty disappointed and returned this back to sephora because it claimed to give lots of volume, and all i saw was nice separation but no wow-factor. don't waste the money!

Great mascara! Love it for my sensitive eyes!

I have sensitive eyes and have tried tons of different mascaras over the years. I like the way Clinque's High Impact coats each lash and I can wear one coat just to darken my lashes or apply 2-3 coats for that WOW look. Once in a while I will get talked into another mascara and always regret it.

Mascara that doesn't smudge - even if I sweat.

I have really sensitive skin and eyes so it was really hard for me to wear mascara for a really long time. Add the sensitive skin to the sensitive eyes add in teary eyes and you get raccoon eyes. Really bad raccoon eyes. I really liked the rest of my clinique make-up so when I heard they had a new waterproof version of this one- I figured why not? And it works. I can put it on in the morning and expect it to be there when I get off after work. And I have no itching, no tearing, no smudging. Most of the time I don't even remember it's even on me! And that's an absolute godsend! I have pretty decent eyelashes on my own- but these make them spectacular. Performance It stays on all day long- no matter what. I'm a sympathetic crier - you start and I'm going down. My job is mostly desk work but every few months we do a floor change- a lot of moving heavy furniture, lifting, set- dressing, you name it I'm in it. I also live a fairly active life - basically I'm a sweaty girl sometimes. And it stays on, No matter what. Heck, if I could last as long as my mascara I'd be golden. Ease of Application slap it on and go- no muss no fuss.

Not worth the price tag.

The Clinique high impact mascara is a great mascara. It lengthens eye lashes and there is no clumping. The only problem is that I could find basically the same thing at the drugstore for half the price. It is a great mascara, but I would not sound the money on it again.

It lasts for SOO LONG and has such a dense brush for creating Great volume and length. I was able to layer on a couple of layers without it getting clumped up. It has a creamy formula, so I don't recommend it as much since it weighed down my lashes and didn't hold a curl. Performance It lasted the entire day and I was very happy that it didn't flake even when I sweated in a 90 something day. The formula is kind of creamy and I don't like creamy mascara because they tend to weigh down my lashes more than drier formulas, but I'll make this an exception. Ease of Application It coated the lashes perfectly, but the large brush made it a little difficult to reach the inner lashes and it did get a little clumpy when I tried to put it on the inner lashes. Overall, I think that the brush is AMAZING because it gave me lots of volume and length. I found that the tip of the brush had a lot of product on it and it clumped the inner lashes, so make sure you get rid of the excess product before applying. I wouldn't recommend this brush for the bottom lashes because it was a real mess when I applied it to the bottom lashes.

Finally a mascara I can wear

Everyone is different and they react to make-up differently. I have tried just about every mascara out there on the market and some would make my eyes burn and itch immediately, some would be ok for 30 minutes and then my eyes would itch and burn and others maybe a couple hours. I always ended up having to wash the mascara off before I wanted. I requested and received a sample of the Clinique High Impact Mascara and it is the only mascara I have ever been able to wear for an entire day and evening. No itching, no burning. Easy to apply, looks natural, no clumping and compared to other high end mascaras, the price is good.
