Good choice for my sensitive eyes.
on June 6, 2012
I'll admit it: I'm a fickle cosmetics customer. Even if I am happy with a product, I can be lured away easily by the glittering promises of a shiny new chance at cosmetic perfection.
I've tried dozens (SEVERAL dozen, in fact) of mascaras, only to be disappointed. If they don't smudge and cause raccoon eyes, they clump into the equally winsome spider eye look, or they crumble off and leave a dusting of black speckles spattered over my cheekbones, or have such a strong chemical smell they make my eyes water and burn, or are so hard to remove that I lose a handful of eyelashes along with the mascara.
Clinique High Impact is one of a very few I have found that perform well, actually does thicken and lengthen my lashes, has decent staying power but can be easily removed with a gentle cleansing.
It doesn't irritate my eyes or my annoyingly sensitive under eye area and although it costs more than many drugstore brands, is reasonably priced when compared to most high end mascaras.
After every foray I make into the testing grounds of new mascara, I end up turning back to this reliable standby.
If you're looking for a new mascara, it's definitely worth considering.
