Sunday Samples!

So, a new series of posts. Sunday Samples pretty much involves me trying out a sample size product, reviewing it & deciding whether I'd buy the full size!

First up, Clinique High Impact Mascara. I got a 1.99g sample size of this in Glamour magazine (costs €3.01). A full size is 8g & is €19.50 in Debenhams. So if you love this, it's cheaper to buy a few samples if they're in a magazine!

Standard packaging & bristle brush

The sample packaging is just a mini size of the full-size, & it's just a dark green, sparkly tube with silver writing. The writing has started to wear off a little bit, but it doesn't bother me!

Bare lashes - One coat - Two coats
Clinique say that this mascara is to add volume to lashes & it definitely succeeds! There's not much improvement in length, but it gives an instant bit of volume without clumps! It also lasts all day and while it's not waterproof, it doesn't run easily. One thing I find it works well for is blending eyelashes with your fake eyelashes, if you use them.

No mascara compared to two coats

Would I buy it again? Not anytime soon, because I have so many mascaras to get through, but I will definitely consider it. Especially for going out, I've used High Impact with a lengthening mascara on the tips & I love the effect!

Have you tried High Impact?

  6. That's a really dramatic difference! I've never tried Clinique mascaras, usually I go with highstreet brands because I hate paying a lot for something that's only going to last a few months. I love higher end blushes and things instead because they last ages lol. Would you say this was better than standard highstreet mascaras? x

    1. I think Clinique mascaras aren't too much more expensive than a lot of high street brands, so it depends what mascaras you go for normally! I have loads of mascaras from different brands & I suppose I use different ones depending on what I want, but I find some higher end ones just last longer! :) x

  7. I had a similar Clinique mascara but it recently went gloopy, loved it though! I'm now using a Benefit one but would definitely buy Clinique again.

    1. That's probably the benefit of samples - You can use them quickly before they go off! I do love Benefit as well though x
