        I've always wanted to try Clinique's mascaras. I was walking around in Younker's a few months back and I decided I would give Clinique a shot. I picked up a mascara, thinking it was the original High Impact, reading good reviews I thought I would start with that one, but once I opened it I noticed the curved brush. I grabbed the wrong one :[ I thought I would absolutely hate it, since it seems like curved brushes always pack on tons of product. Once I got a chance to try it, I was really surprised. I have medium length lashes, but they like to stick straight out. I have to give them a good curl and a few coats to get them noticed. This mascara had a lot of product (I guessed it) on the brush, but I just wiped it off with a tissue. I got really great results! Nice seperated lashes, long and thick looking. It held the curl for me. Normally I have to commit a crime and curl my lashes again with mascara on. Not with this! My mom kept making comments about how good they looked :) I had a problem with the tube drying out fast though. I only had it a few weeks before I started noticing this. Using warm water to take it off is a cool idea, I just wet my face and run my fingers under the water then rub my lashes until it's off. I've tried so many different mascaras from the drugstore--it's worth the price to find a quality one instead of wasting money on ones that don't work. Great first purchase from Clinique!

        I love the other (warm water removal) mascara and thought I'd try the curling (warm water removal) mascara. No matter how much I "wiggle" the wand up my lashes it comes off the brush clumpy. My eye lashes stick together and I have to start all over. The one time I didn't have time to reapply it did keep my eyelashes curled BUT what a waste of $16.00, this goes right to the trash can.

        Disappointing

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        I wanted a mascara that was smudgeproof and natural looking. At first use, I was pleased with the way it applied, but after about a week, it got very clumpy, goopy, and just hard to put on (which led to wasting a lot of it as I had to dab on tissue before applying). The worst part is that it was almost impossible to take off and led to losing a lot of lashes. Too bad.

        Did not work for me

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        This product did not work for me. I tried working with it for a couple of weeks (it does work a little better as a second layer) but it is just too clumpy and flakey. I am sure Clinique has some great products but I was a little scared away by this one.

        Did not notice any curl

        By 

        from Oregon, USA

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        I didn�t notice any particular curling effect with this mascara. It was pretty wet and seemed harder to remove at the end of the day than I expected. I much prefer the straight-up High Impact mascara, which I love.

        Life Long Clinique Customer

        By 

        from Humid South

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        Too much product comes out on the brush. I try to scrape the excess off at the top of the tube but when I apply I get glops of mascara on my lashes- it's ugly. I've used Clinique press powder compacts for 22 years, since I was 16. I've tried a few other brands out but I always come back to Clinique press powder. I'm a loyal customer and I wish I could buy your mascara, but with these results I can't.

        Best for dry eye

        from Texas

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        I�ve experienced significant improvement in dry eye symptoms by using this tubular mascara. Also looks great. Not difficult to remove, which reduces sensitivities.

        I love this mascara, it's easy to get off and it feels like I'm not even wearing it which is great for my sensitive eyes.

        Love At Last

        By 

        from Ottawa Canada

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        I have oily skin and poker straight lashes. I have been searching all my life for a mascara that doesn�t fall and cause a shadow around my eye. I�m over 50 years and believe me I even tried them all. This mascara is it for me. Stays on all day, travelling on airplanes and straight into a business meeting. It�s performance is impressive, and it really does

        lift my lashes to a curl. It�s a bit fussy to remove until I figured out it really does come off with just plain water and no makeup remover.

        My search is over. It�s love!

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        Black mascara on fair skin is not good. It seems as though you are cutting manufacturing costs by only offering black in mascara. Black/Brown would be my suggestion. Send me a sample in a brown shade and I will give it a good review.

        Messy

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        Based on the description I thought this mascara would be the best one for my desired results, but it's been very disappointing. The brush is all right, but the mascara itself is very messy. I can't apply it to my top lashes without it getting all over my upper brow & when it dries it's extremely clumpy & flaky. I've not been at all happy with this mascara, but considering the price I feel I'm stuck with it until I've used it all.

        Nice lashes, but not worth the hassle to remove.

        By 

        from Northern VA

        Comments about Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara:

        I LOVE a curling brush, and wish Clinique would make more available, so I was really looking forward to trying this mascara. It went on relatively easily and stayed put all day. But at night, it took a LOT of rubbing with my Take the Day Off balm. A LOT of rubbing. And then another round of makeup remover in the morning. That's not worth it for me. I'll stick with the Natural Glossy which just makes my lashes look almost as great, and melts off with the makeup removing balm.
