I’ve previously used the big one from Clinique which I loved, however I wanted to try something different whilst still keeping to the Clinique brand. This mascara goes on beautifully, doesn’t lump or smear throughout the day. You can build it up for a more dramatic and thicker lash look without having to worry about your lashes clumping together. I would definitely purchase again.

Not for me
I've tried this mascara many times over the years, because I love Clinique and I'm always hoping it will impress me. Each time I've tried it, I haven't noticed any amazing effect on my lashes. It's just an ordinary mascara in that sense. The biggest issue I have with this though, is that it always ends up smudged under my eyes, no matter what I do to prevent it. To be fair, this is not unique with this mascara for me, most mascaras do this. Sadly this mascara just doesn't work for me.

Best mascara money can buyI have been using this mascara for over 5 years and wouldn’t spend my money on anything else!
Natural lashes!this mascara gives a beautiful wide eyed look, in a clean and natural way. No clumps, so a beautifully fresh look for during the day. This is one of the few mascaras that doesn’t leave residue around my eyes by the end of the day, and yet it also comes off so easily when it’s time to remove it!
BeautifulNot the best I have ever used, but definitely makes my lashes look nice and long and not clumpy
No clumpsGood, non clumping formula. Brush is fine (though i prefer a curved one) and gives a natural looking result. Not too smudgy either.
GoodThis mascara does not clump my lashes and makes my lashes look super long. Amazing product
Clump free lashesEasy to apply lashes are more defined but still natural looking. Fragrance free and great for sensitive eyes like mine.
ImpressedI oils of never thought Clinique would make a mascara that would be so perfect! I stumbled upon this by chance (free sample) otherwise I would have never known about this little gem. It’s perfect for everyday. It doesn’t EVER clump and it adds an incredible amount of length!
My favourite mascara!This is by far the best mascara I have ever used. It does not clump or smudge.
A Perfect MascaraI used to steel this mascara off my Mum when I was a teenager, I absolutely love it. After trying so many others over the years, I always tends to come home to this one. It's smooth, not clumpy, and works for me even though my eyes can be sensitive to some makeup.
Trusty! One of my all time favourite brushes!!I am a self-professed mascara whore and I have tried them all (even more than one at a time) but this one is always in my makeup bag. The brush is incredible and really is dramatic whilst looking natural still. Such a great product.
My favourite mascaraI love this mascara. It’s my absolute favourite. I can’t always afford it with my budget but when I can I love using it. The best mascara ever
good basic mascaragreat basic mascara for day or night doesn't leave you with panda eyes
Good mascaraHave been using this mascara for months now, received a sample size and has lasted ages. The formula isn't to wet and provides volume and length. Will purchase full size when i run out

My Holy GrailI have been using this for years and years. I originally got it because I have sensitive eyes. I find I can use it in different ways to get a natural lash day or a high impact night time look. Comes off with warm water which is always a bonus, no harsh rubbing required. I have also been swimming in the ocean with this on and no panda eyes. Its the perfect all rounder for me, ticks all my boxes.
Say hello to voluminous lashesExtremely volumising, which I LOVE and doesn’t irritate my eyes. But my only gripe with this mascara is that it can transfer under my eyes during the day, not sure if they offer a waterproof version of this mascara but I would absolutely buy if they did!
Wonderful!Amazing mascara that doesn’t smudge, come off in water and goes on wonderfully without clumps! Hard to get off which is something to note.
true to its nameperfect mascara for the lower lashes, and inner corner lashes, as it really gets in there and coats perfectly. It lengthens fantastically also. The brush applicator is not my favourite though, i prefer a 'chubbier' mascara brush.
Great lengthThis gives me good length without clumping or looking heavy. Really like this mascara
Good MascaraA good quality fragrance free mascara, easy to apply and clump free.
one of my all time favourite mascarasLovely, buildable mascara, with great impact. I also love the wand and it doesn't dry out.
Loved itI wasn't expecting to love this as much as i did, i've been commited to using kevyn aucion mascars recently but i love the fullness this gives to my lashes, they lengthen and seperate without going chunky and gluggy, will purchase again!
Great for sensitive eyesThis mascara is really good for sensitive eyes! It also performs so well, better than I expected. It adds volume and length! And does clump at all or make your eye lashes sick together. I added 4 coats and it never once started to clump
Non irritating formulaThis is one of the few mascaras that doesn't irritate my eyes. As a big bonus it adds volume, doesn't smudge, and looks great!
DecentNot bad at all! I don't love the brush though
NiceNice mascara that makes my.lashes look amaze
Best mascara I’ve come acrossThis is hands down, the best mascara I’ve used. I’ll often try another brand only to go back to this one. Highly recommend.
Gentle on eyelash extensionsi generally avoid mascara these days due to having eyelash extensions but when I do want to wear mascara for events I find this is the most gentle whilst giving volume and boost
My go-toThis has been my go-to mascara for 10 years. It is on the pricier side but I have tried many others and this is the best for minimal clumping, no panda eyes and longevity of product. It does thicken over time after opening but this doesn't affect the wear. Thickens and lengthens.
A Good Every Day MascaraOne thing I care about with mascaras is high impact, minimal clump. This mascara is perfect as it is dramatic but does not clump easily like other brands. Great product!
solid productPretty solid mascara, not much different to most though
Great MascaraI really like this mascara - lengthens and thickens your eyelashes without making them look clumpy. Would recommend!
Everyday mascaraGood mascara for everyday use although doesn't accentuate my lashes as well as I would like it to. It is long lasting and doesn't smudge. A good back up mascara for me!
Daily Must Have for sensitive EyesI love this mascara and have been using it for years. It never smudges. I have sensitive skin & some mascaras irritate my eye but not this one
OK mascara, but nothing specialOK mascara, but nothing special. For the price there are better options.
Not much impactThis adds some definition but really not much else. It's definitely not high impact as the name says.
However the brush is a good size, large enough to get most of the lashes in one go, and small enough to get into the tiny inner lashes and lower lashes.
It applies well with no transfer.
However it runs a little, and is not smudge proof.
Also, it doesn't really volumise or lengthen. It doesn't hold the curl and my lashes droop throughout the day.
OkayIt’s a decent mascara but I won’t purchase
Great mascaraOne thing I care about with mascaras is high impact, minimal clump. This mascara is perfect as it is dramatic but does not clump easily like other brands. Great product!
Great for sensitive eyesI bought the black clinique mascara after finding my previous mascara was irritating my eyes. This mascara works really well and doesn't irritate my eyes at all. It also provides a decent amount of volume to your lashes which is great for fair lashes like mine.
Best mascaraI have re purchased this mascara so many times. Once you try it you won’t go back! It’s so soft and comfortable on your lashes and does not ever flake. So perfect for sensitive eyes.
naturalgood if you are going for a natural look but other mascaras are way better if you want big fluffy eyelashes. Good for everyday use.
Good everyday mascaraGreat for everyday. It’s easy to apply and easily buildable for a thicker or bolder look without being clumpy.
A noticeable differenceThis mascara does wonders for my short lashes. It provides volume and length and lasts all day.
Love this mascaraI love this mascara and have been using it for years. It never smudges. I have sensitive skin & some mascaras irritate my eye but not this one
Good MascaraI received this as a gift - I never thought to get a mascara from Clinique. To my surprise, this is actually quite a good mascara. I have thin straight lashes and only very few mascaras can work for me. This mascara elongated my lashes without clumping them together, did not weigh my lashes down and ruin my lash curling. Looked really nice and lasted well all day. No eye irritation at all.
HG mascaraI'm surprised at the average reviews. I find this better than Benefit's "They're Real" mascara which is saying something because that seems to be a HG for a lot of people. I got a free sample of this a while ago and was wowed. Basically, mascara can't make your lashes longer, it just gives the illusion of this because most people have very thin or sun-bleached lashes at the very ends, so it's all about the way that the formula and brush coat your lashes, and your unique lash shape and thickness. The way this worked with my lashes was phenomenal - they were coated smoothly right to the tips and the brush got all of them, even the hard to reach ones on my outer lids. Basically made me look like I'd gotten lash extensions. I ran out of it, and used other mascaras in between, and I sort of forgot how long my lashes really were as none of these did that great of a job. I gave in and got this one again, and again I was wowed yet again. This is the only mascara that keeps my lashes separate and not looking clumpy.
You can use it subtly or pump it right up with lots of coats and it still doesn't get clumpy. The best thing is that you can get it in brown which is something that really lacks with other mascaras - I'm fair and don't like wearing black mascara unless I'm wearing a dramatic eye look (and even then I usually prefer brown). So yeah, in conclusion this mascara (especially the brown colour) gives a great subtle, almost-no-makeup look but still really pumps your lashes up.
Favourite mascaraThis is the best mascara I have found (originally as a free sample)! Easy to use, and always looks great. Doesn’t get clumpy after a few uses like some others and great with sensitive skin/ eyes.
Does exactly what it saysI received a free sample of this with my Clinique purchase however i’ve used this mascara in the past. It really does exactly what it says. My lashes are huge after and there is no clumping! It does last a while but be careful to tighten the lid so it doesn’t dry out. People often ask me if I’m wearing fake eyelashes when I’m wearing this. I can see why this has been around for years and why the formula and brush have never been changed. However I do think it’s a little overpriced for a mascara. I think $25/30 would be more appropriate:)
Its okIts an ok mascara, there isnt anything i can complain about it. But there are so many better mascaras in this price point. I will not be repurchasing.
Good but Ran Out QuickNot a bad mascara but probably not worth $39 as it ran out very quick compared to others i have used.
GreatIt’s a great mascara my only problem is that the formula dries out quickly
Love itOne of my fave mascaras!
Good quality mascaraI really like this mascara. It makes my lashes much thicker and longer - no clumps! This mascara looks natural and you can wear it as an everyday look, but you can also build it up to a more dramatic look if you wanted to. Will be buying this one again.
Love itPossibly the best mascara out there. Full lash look and not clumpy at all. Love sample size ones as They are easier to apply, but for a good lasting intense mascara, this is the one!
LoveThis is one of my favourite mascaras! Boosts volume really well without getting clumpy and lasts for ages.
doesn’t clumpI am very picky with my mascaras though I have fallen in love this one mascara. It doesn’t clump yet leaves my eyelashes volumised.
AMAZING!I first got this mascara as a sample from Adore Beauty and since then I've been obsessed! My lashes look amazing and full.
Best MascaraI've tried many different mascara brands over the years & always come back to this one. Lengthens, volumise, and doesn't clump. Love it.
Must have!!I think this is the best mascara! It makes your lashes super long, volumises and doesn't clog. I've received so many compliments since using it. I won't be buying anything else!
BEST MASCARAThis mascara doesn't clog and it makes your eyelashes look longer, it is also the best mascara to come off and doesn't smudge all over your face. It may be a small addition to your make up collection but it is a definitely a valuable one! I have recommended this to so many people and they now purchase it ongoing.
It's probably more than I'd normally payThis mascara is really easy to remove and after a long day, that's all I ask!
Love this!This is my everyday mascara, and my absolute favorite! I've tried over a dozen mascaras but this is the one for me! It doesn't smudge and get beneath my eyes and when I tear up (it isn't waterproof but it's pretty dang resistant!). I already have pretty full pitch black lashes so I cant vouch much for volume but it really defines and lengthens my lashes and they barely clump!!
Ride or die mascaraThis is my favourite mascara of all time. makes my lashes so long and doesnt flake at all.
Good quality mascaraI bought this recently as I had run out of a previous clinique mascara that I was using and was using a cheap brand in the interim.
I was tired of the cheap brand clumping on my lashes so was looking for a mascara that would apply well and look natural. This absolutely glides on very easily and does not clump at all! Because it doesn't clump my lashes are intensified and emboldened but still look very natural and effortless.
I love clinique mascaras and I wasn't let down at all by this purchase. I'd recommend it if you want a natural look that also stands out. It isn't as thickening or lengthening as some others though, so if that is what you are really after you may want to try another mascara.
GoodThis is a good reliable mascara. It doesn't add volume etc to my lashes but it does make them look bolder and darker.
DecentThis is a decent mascara. Not the best and probably good for basic looks.
GoodThis is a good, basic mascara that adds volume without clumpiness. I don't wear mascara much these days, but this is one of the brands that doesn't irritate my eyes. Good stuff.
A good thickening mascaraA great mascara that is comfortable to wear on the eyes all day long. Great formula that doesn't flake. Perfect if you want to thicken up lashes, gives a doll eyes effect - love it! You can build it up with multiple coasts for a more dramatic effect. A bit expensive, but worth it if you want a splurge!
Nice mascaraI was given a sample of this mascara and I loved it so I bought the full size. It doesn't clump and gives a great length to my short eyelashes. I love it! It's worth the price and I recommend it :)
Love it!I love this mascara, it never clumps my lashes and so easy to apply! I have tried Too Faced best selling mascara but I have to say High impact is my favourite!
Intense YesThis is by far the best mascara out there. It gives a thick full lash look and isn't clumpy at all. I love when you get the smaller sample size ones as I find them easier to apply, but for a good lasting intense mascara, this is the one to go for.
The bestThis product would be the make up item that I recommend most to my friends. It is hands down the best mascara I’ve ever tried and I’ve frequently been asked if I’m wearing false eye lashes when I have it on. It lengthens and thickens without clumping and has great lasting power. The best.
Great daytime mascaraThis mascara is perfect for daily wear - can build volume with the more coats you put on. Will be repurchasing!
NiceVery nice mascara, it doesn’t irritate my eyes like some other brands do. Looks nice and natural, adds length. Doesn’t clump. Easy to apply.
Non-clumpy mascaraI usually love lots of volume from a mascara and this isn't the most volumising one I've used BUT I have received so many compliments wearing this mascara. It doesn't clump at all and looks really natural
Packs a punchThis is one of the only two mascaras that I will use. It doesn’t look clumpy whatsoever and makes my lashes look the longest they possibly can without the use of lash extensions.
Perfect for daytimeI like this as a daytime mascara for natural-looking lashes. It lengthens and separates my lashes beautifully, without making them look spidery and clumpy. I also have sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate them at all, plus it comes off easily with water.
Really nice mascaraLove this mascara- it is soo easy to apply and makes my lashes really bold without the need for false lashes. It's also easy to remove and doesn't give me the dreaded panda eyes at the end of the day!
Great mascaraGreat mascara! I have sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate them at all! It is also very easy to remove with any makeup remover. Makes lashes look defined and fuller with one application!
Such a nice mascaraI love this mascara because it makes my lashes so much longer and volumized. It also looks like it opens up my eyes a lot. It's one of the best mascara formulas i've tried. The only downfall is that even a little bit of water will cause it to run. However, overall i really like this mascara! I recommend!
Nice mascara!This is a nice mascara that builds a lot of body in the lashes. Fine for sensitive eyes, and easy to remove with a good eye make-up remover or cleansing balm! Have repurchased - in the travel size for holidays too!
Yeah goodEasy to apply. Separates lashes, not clumpy, good length, not much volume though. Unless a few coats. Like the brush. I’m happy with this for everyday use. I wouldn’t call it high impact but it does make my lashes pop, but nothing major. I probably wouldn’t buy again as it’s quite pricey. But overall a good everyday mascara!
A solid productThis mascara makes your lashes longer and gives them more body. I am happy with this product but would have to say it is not my favourite. I prefer the benefit mascaras over this product.
Great but expensive for cliniqueI did like using this mascara, however for the price point, there are other better options out there. It didn't get clumpy, and didn't drop throughout the day but I won't repurchase.
Good mascaraThis does give a high impact (pun intended) but not the best out there for the price. I'm definitely a high end mascara person but its not 100% smudeproof or anything so worth a try but not my fav.
Worthwhile productThis mascara is great for creating voluminous lashes and it seems to last all day. I would repurchase.
Great mascaraI love this mascara! I got a sample and liked it so much, I bought the full size one. It is great at thickening and lengthening your lashes. Love it.
The best in the business!This is my favourite mascara ever! It gives length and volume, doesn’t flake or smudge and lasts all day. I have hooded eyes so most mascaras end up transferring colour on my eyelids, but not this one. I have been using this years, and have tried others but they don’t compare!
Lovely MascaraTrue black formula, thickens, lengthens with no sign or clumping, sign me up
Doesn't transfer, smudge, flake or wear off during the day
Best. Mascara. Ever.I tired this mascara as it was in one of the Clinique Travel Sets that I received as a gift. After one stroke, I knew this would be my new favourite mascara! I have tried SO many mascaras over the years, and this hands down wins. This lengthens my eyelashes so dramatically. Your lashes look long, whispy and full. This mascara does not clump or transfer if you let it dry for a few second. My boyfriend actually asked if I was wearing false lashes when he saw me wearing this for the first time!
