Cliniques high definition mascara is just ok. If you're like me with short but plentiful eyelashes it will help define them (seperate and lengthen) but it takes more then a few coats for your eyelashes to look like they are even there. Pros on this mascara it doesnt clump it does give you a smooth look and doesnt rub off onto your hand or upper eyelid like some other cheaper mascaras. if you're looking for volume however you will need to double layer this mascara with another one. One other great thing about this mascara is it is semi water proof, it washes off in warm water so its great for the pool in the summer though i would still be careful about rubbing your eyes it still comes off but in clumps when wet.
