Clinique High Impact Mascara in 01 Black





I received this Clinique High Impact Mascara free in my Cosmopolitan this month as I didn't particularly fancy any of the other products on offer, and figured that a girl can never have too much mascara. I have been aware of Clinique mascara's for a while now but I have never been that drawn to them because I am quite happy with the high street brands. However, here I find myself not only trying one but liking it too.
The packaging is pretty standard. However I like that it's a dark green colour with a glittery shimmer look to it. I don't think I have come across a mascara tube that is green before so this is a first.
The brush is a lot longer than I thought it would be, and the bristles are dense, which helps to pick up and coat every lash. This is obviously only the tester size, but since the handle is so short I found it a lot easier to control the brush and get it into the corners of my eyes. 
It did seem a little thin when I first put it on so I just kept running the brush through my lashes to help build up the product without letting it dry first. After one coat I achieved the look above and I am pretty happy with it. The tube is a perfect size to pop in your clutch on a night out and gives you nice volume as well as length. 
Overall I am pretty pleased with it. I don't know if I would purchase it myself because at £16 it is slightly more expensive than the other brands such as L'Oreal and I feel that they do just as good of a job, if not better. But if you're looking to treat yourself - because you're a student like myself - then look out for this item at your nearest Clinique counter!
