New mascara? *rolls eyes* well this isn't one to ignore and I'd like to show you why. Clinique, who produce some of my all time favourite mascaras have developed a mascara with such impressive impact I just had to blog about it. The name, High Impact Extreme Volume in Extreme Black literally does what it says!
The new wand reminded me of a few products on the market; a cross between Benefit's They're Real, Avon's Super Shock Max and Max Factor False Effect with intimate bristles in plastic on a thick barrel with the added bonus of a rounded tip for those tricky lil' lashes.
Before applying I curled my lashes as I usually do- I wanted to see how extreme they could be!
First coat, pretty good and an intense matt black finish.
The second coat combed through what felt like each and every lash.
Ah, and now the real test...how would it fair with no eye lash curling beforehand?
The first coat added volume for sure and equally definition.
Then the second coat impressed me the most, pure and simply VA-VA-VOOM. I loved how each minute lash was boosted with ultra-thickness and volume for a full on effect without the use of my beloved eye lash curlers.
High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara is waterbased so removes with ease, though does stay in place all day without smudging as far as I could see. I will most certainly use this again, the results are all that I look for in a mascara and from a company who have brought us some of the most innovative and unique beauty must-haves.
