Review of Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara

Say Goodbye to Your Eyelash Curler With Clinique's High Impact Curling Mascara

Even though I definitely see great results when I use my trusty eyelash curler (affectionately nicknamed "torture device" by a former beau), do I use it religiously? Not always. While it's a super-quick step to creating full lashes, sometimes I'm more into a "streamline and simplify" kind of mood. That's where Clinique's High Impact Curling Mascara ($14) comes into play.

The new product, which arrives in stores next month, promises to deliver volume and curl for 24 hours. No eyelash curler needed. The self-curling action comes from a combination of lightweight ingredients and the curvature of the wand. Just by wiggling and holding it at certain angles, you are in essence setting the curl.

While I haven't tried the mascara for a full 24 hours, it held true to its promise by remaining smudge-free for a good 14. It didn't flake, and my lashes look noticeably longer with a slight curl. As for removal, I loved that the mascara slid right off with just a little water. My only complaint? The texture of this product took some getting used to. It's a little heavy feeling, and while it didn't clump, my lashes looked a little makeup-y. And as for that 24-hour experiment . . . I'm going to the up-all-night city of Las Vegas soon, so I'll have to test it out then.
