Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara

First off the name is definitely an over-hype. I had such high hopes for the Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara since everything I try from Clinique is always so nice. Sadly it left me wanting.

It's not a horrible mascara. It separates the lasts and holds a curl fairly well, but I'm interested in a mascara that can bring on the volume, and this one fell short. After using this mascara for a few weeks I now fully understand what someone means when they say, "spidery lashes." My lashes feel like they are going all over the place every which way no matter how much effort I put in to tame them.

The brush is awkward and messy, the consistency started off nice and then got a bit gloopy. It just wasn't a success. I think the eye photos show well enough that something just seems off with this product. It looks ok, but just not right. I have handfuls of drugstore mascaras that are miles ahead of this. Welp, you can't win them all.

Have you tried this mascara before? Do you like reading negative reviews or would you rather see more positive ones?

xoxo Kayla


  1. I haven't tried this yet and thanks to you I never will. So yes, I like negative reviews. I like bloggers who are honest about products.. I do it too!

  2. Really like your photo's
    Its sad that it doesn't do what you want it to do, it looks oke, but I know what you mean.


  3. I use the Clinique High Impact Mascara but the 'extreme' one looks a bit of a let down, I tend to wear mine with Benefit's 'They're Real' where one lacks the other makes up for it!

  4. Well that's no good! I normally love clinique stuff, but maybe I'll skip this one!

  5. I love the High Impact mascara, so maybe they should have just left that alone. It doesn't look great on at all. such a shame, usually love Clinique!
