Happy Halloween everyone! I would love to do a themed post but I don’t have any ideas and I’m not dressing up as it’s my boyfriends birthday, so this will have to do. If I had to choose only two make-up products it would have to be concealer and mascara. I absolutely love mascara and how it instantly opens your eyes and makes you look more ‘awake’. This mascara is from one of my favourite skincare and beauty brands and is possibly my favourite. I love my Soap and Glory mascara for thickness but this Clinique mascara gives my lashes amazing length.
What they say; ‘High Impact Mascara is a multi-benefit mascara that adds maximum volume with definition and length. Specially developed brush and formula work together to dramatically thicken lashes while separating. ‘
I have used tubes of this and it never fails me. The one pictured is a smaller sized version which came in one of the Clinique Bonus time sets, the samples alone last at least 2 months. Now Clinique claim that this mascara is best for thickening but I find it makes my lashes look really long and not really thick just separated which I really like. It’s also not a clumpy mascara and the formula has a nice consistency which brushes on easily without the need to build lots of layers to get the length.
The brush is just like a normal mascara brush (not angled, rubber bristles etc). I find this type of brush good for lifting the lashes at the root so they look even longer. I can’t believe how long my lashes look in this picture. I have had short lashes ever since I was like 11/12 when my Mum’s friend put mascara on my and I thought my lashes looked wrong so I cut them, oops. I’m not sure if they have grown back since but this mascara really helps. It’s also really easy to remove with make-up wipes or I like to use the Clinique take the day off cleanser, and doesn’t bring your lashes off with it.
This Mascara is £18.00 from a Clinique stand in Boots/Debenhams/House of Fraser or you can buy online here.
