Yesterday, when I was at Mecca Maxima, I asked the Clinique ladies when the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara would be launched in Australia – but they had no idea!  Boohoo!  Please come here soon.  Anyway, here is my review of Clinique High Impact Mascara.

Clinique, Clinique mascara, high impact optimal

Product Description

New richly pigmented shade gives eyes instant brightening power-it’s clinically proven. Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that’s lusher, plusher, bolder. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you’ll feel naked without it. Ophthalmologist Tested.

Product Testing

My almost non-existent lashes need desperately need high impact, so does Clinique High Impact Mascara perform well after 3 coats of mascara?

Clinique mascara, high impact mascara


  • Lashes look darker and thicker.
  • Lashes are not clumpy and well separated.
  • Lashes appear to be evenly coated.
  • Lashes are not lengthened.


I am disappointed with the results.  Clinique High Impact Mascara promised a high impact – but even after 3 coats of mascara, there is no OOMPH anywhere.  And as well know, Clinique isn’t exactly a drugstore product, i.e. expensive!  Pah!  Clinique High Impact Mascara, The Best Beauty Blog awards you 4 out of 10!

    I prefer the Lash Doubling mascara over the High Impact, I wasn’t wowed by it either. I hope you get to try the Bottom Lash soon, I really like it !

    The bottom lash mascara is already out! I bought it last week for review at the Clinique counter at DJ / Myer! It’s great for our asian lashes 😀 I’m sure you’ll love it 😀

    Excuse me but how do you expect to have longer lashes with a mascara when you have SHORT lashes?! Example: Blond people haave brown eyelashes and the ends of their lashes are blond => you can NOT see the end of them. that’s when a mascara lenghtens the eyelashes! gosh..

    Have you tried their high lengths mascara, it’s quite good though does dry out kind of quicker than my other mascaras
