Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara

Clinique High Impact Waterproof MascaraWow a waterproof mascara that actually works and doesn't take all your eyelashes off when you try to remove it. Another necessary purchase for baby swimming (see Make Up For Ever Full Cover review). Smudge proof mascaras such as Eyeko, didn't last, Lash Genius by Anastasia Beverly Hills didn't completely work and although I usually hate them I felt a full-on waterproof mascara was the way to go and all the recommendations pointed to Clinique High Impact Waterproof mascara.

I wasn't too fussed about the 'High Impact' part, I wanted waterproof definition but I was seriously impressed. Now I'd say for high impact you need a good couple of layers really working the mascara up from the root of the lashes but it did not budge at all and was true black and gave beautiful definition to the lashes. It didn't flake and wasn't that tricky to remove but that may be down to soaking the lashes with a bit of Bioderma before using my fantastic new Emma Hardie cleanser.

Now I try to read the customer reviews on the site before buying anything and the ones on Clinque for this are not great. Only 3 out of 5 stars. Some loved it and some found it did clump a bit and some even found it flaked after a long time of wearing it. I have to say I always use a lash comb when applying mascara - lumps can easily be removed. As for the flaking I have not experienced this but I will let you know if this happens over the coming weeks and I'll really be looking out for it.

The bottom line is - is this mascara reliably waterproof? The answer to that is yes. I've never had any trouble with it and on that basis I can highly recommend it. If you are after waterproof mascara you are after piece of mind and with this product you will have that. Is it the best mascara I've ever used? No, but its the best waterproof one.

It is pretty reasonably priced at £16 and it seems to sell out online quite quickly so if you want this and you see it in store then get it while you have the chance!
