Yep, you read correctly, I am actually claiming this to be the best mascara I have ever tried… what a statement hey! I love my Origins mascara, I love my Make Up For Ever mascara, I even quite like the Soap & Glory mascara, but oh-my-god… this one is incredible. 

I really had no expectations or high hopes when I was about to try the Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume mascara ‘meh, just another mascara’. But after just one swipe on my lashes I was blown away. The brush is one of those plastic ones with little bristles, that I normally don’t like at all. I tried the L’Oreal Telescopic and wasn’t a fan as the wand didn’t grip to my lashes and just did nothing. There’s something about the Clinique brush that makes it apply the perfect amount of product and it clings to the lashes so well that you can practically stroke your lashes with the wand. Application is so precise and after just one coat my lashes were long and thick. 

Now I have (thankfully) quite long and thick lashes anyway, so I made sure to test this on my mum too. She has (sorry mum) tiny little straight lashes and when she used this she also said ‘WOW’… and it’s pretty hard to impress my mum! 

The best thing about Clinique mascaras is that you can try them on at the counters because they have tester wands that are actually the same as the wand in the mascara you want to try. So I’d recommend trying this yourself, but I’m pretty sure most of you will love it. I certainly do!

Ahh… I love a good product rave. 

Have you tried this mascara yet?

I’m off to Thailand today, but there will still be posts daily on here and videos going up on my YouTube channel. See you in two weeks (hopefully a little bronzed up!)

    I know MAC mascaras get a lot of bad press but you need to try MAC’s new mascara ‘In Extreme Dimension Lash’. It’s amazing and has a brush just like this one.

  10. Lauren Rose says:

    This looks great, I always have the issue of black under my eyes from mascara, I think it’s from my Diorshow mascara at the moment!x

  11. Still haven’t tried it, but I’ve always sworn by their regular High Impact (seriously, I’ve never tried anything that even compares) – so I really wanna try this!

  12. ValΓ©rie says:

    Keep calm and carry lipstick.

  17. this sounds amazing, but I cant imagine it topping my benefit they’re real! great photos x


  18. hannah maggs says:

    ooooh it looks gorgeous. ive tried a clinique mascara before and it took me a couple of goes to actually like it, because of the same sort of plastic aplicator. i actually ended up really liking it. So i’m guessing this would be similar. it has certainly done an impressive job on your eye;lashes lilly, and coming from you, it really must be a great one. Thanks for the reccomendation. I’ve just ran out of my mac mascara (totally over-rated) so I’ll be trying this one next xx

  19. Cristi says:

    I think I own every Clinique mascara they have, haha love them! But it’s because they are really good and they don’t cause me allergies (itchy eyes)! x

  20. This looks amazing and I will def try it next time I need a new mascara! xx

  21. That looks amazing! I definitely need to get my hands on it! Have a lovely time in Thailand Lily πŸ™‚ xxx

  22. Stevie says:

    I’ve used this one for a while, its great!

  23. Loving the before and after pictures Lily, your lashes look super long and curly in the after picture. I’m never quite sure about Clinique as a brand but I’d be tempted to give this a try.

  24. Catherine says:

    This looks fantastic! My current mascara’s almost finished so will be off to find my nearest Clinique counter soon! πŸ™‚
    Catherine x

  25. Katie says:

    It looks amazing! I’ve heard it’s ‘tubing’ too, so it lasts ages and can only be removed by rubbing your lashes gently?
    Katie xx

  26. Wow, your eyelashes look amazing. I need to purchase this!



  27. I’ve never bothered with Clinique’s mascaras before but this looks amazing!

    Have a great holiday πŸ™‚

  28. Wow looks fabulous! I definitely would like to try it once my current one runs out:)! Thankyou for the post lily x

  29. Sarah says:

    your lashes look gorgeous! have fun in thailand too πŸ™‚

  30. I looked at this online but on the website the mascara wand is green? X

  31. Rothaariges says:

    Wow! The result is amazing!

  32. Tess says:

    wow that’s amazing!

  33. This is one of my favourite mascaras, especially for layering!

  34. Rachel says:

    oh my goodness this looks AMAZING! i never would have thought the best mascara find would be from clinique but now i definitely want to check this out after my maybelline mascara dries out. thanks for much for sharing, and for including the before & after pictures… great indication of the awesomeness of this mascara πŸ™‚

  35. Rachel says:

    oh my goodness, can’t get over how great your lashes look. i’m going to have to give this a try, aren’t i! x


  36. Nicola says:

    Wow, that does wonders for your lashes! I love the look of the brush too, no clumps!


  37. I’ve actually heard quite a few good reviews about this mascara, and was tempted to buy it but was slightly reluctant because of the price, it looks absolutely gorgeous though! Have fun in Thailand also! x


  38. This post is really helpful Lily. The best mascaras I have tried are YSL faux lash effect and Lancome Hypnose star. The latest one I have tried is Loreal Volume million lashes but I don’t like it as much as the others. I have been looking for a good mascara without the premium price tag so I may have to give this mascara a go as £17 is reasonable although I would like to find one I love for under £10. Can anyone recommend any other good mascaras? Holly xx

  39. WOW! No I haven’t tried it, but I WILL! Thanks for sharing!!


  40. Ampersaand says:

    This looks really great! The photos really show the difference. Love it x

  41. angelos says:

    I tried it when it first came out as I’m a bit of a mascara junkie but I did NOT like it. I tend to go for these rubber bristle brushes but the bristles didn’t seem to pick up much product and when I tried to use the mascara “wells” (the flat sides) properly it just kind of glued my lashes together. I’ve really been enjoying the newest MAC mascara – I think the Extreme Dimension Lash? – which uses a similarly designed brush.

  42. Pippa Jones says:

    This looks amazing for length. It doesnt do much for the thinkness. but it does look a really good mascara tho. Really lengthens your lashes. Gives the a bold statement!

  46. Lauren says:

    I thought my benefit mascara was brilliant but it’s starting to dry up so it looks like this will be its replacement! x

  47. f-e-r-n says:

    Wow! this looks incredible!! benefit, they’re real is my current favourite but i’m super tempted to try this out now, and hope you have an amazing time in Thailand πŸ™‚ x x

  57. JustEmily says:

    I used to use this mascara years ago then I got swept away by the hype over other mascaras such as the Benefit ones which I love too, but now I really want to try this out again.
    I love the shiny packaging too, haha!

  59. Sofia C. says:

    Oh! I will definitely try this mascara! Right now i use Max Factor “Falsh Lash effect” for a more dramatic look and “The Colossal Volume Express” by Maybeline for cat-eyes and a more easy-going look. I’ve recently got a new one from Max Factor called “Clump Defy”. So i have quite a few mascaras and want to use ’em up before they expire. THEN i’m going to try the one from Clinique! Hah!

  60. wow this mascara looks incredible!! Im definitely gonna try it out.

  65. Diane J says:

    Wow Lily. I have these teeny tiny straight lashes bordering on being invisible (quite common with Asians) but by the sound of things I think this mascara might just come to my rescue. Will pick up a tube as soon as I gather enough funds. Haha πŸ™‚ thanks for sharing too. The results on your lashes is incredible. Here’s hoping it’ll be the same for me.
