Clinique High Lengths Mascara - Review

Hi Beauty Lovers!

I hope you had a relaxing long weekend, I usually work bank holidays so it was a luxury to have the whole weekend off.

Todays post is another review which has been tried, tested and repurchased.

I was given a cute Clinique tester all the way back in January and I purchased the larger product in March because I loved it that much!

Packaging & Product
I find with mascaras its all about the wand, that's just my opinion, so I've linked packaging and product together.
First of all let me say how boring the packaging is...a plain white tube? If I saw this in a shop my eyes would skim right over it, lucky for me I was given a sample so this wasn't the case. That's all I'm going to say about the packaging because lets be honest it's all about they wand!
If your like me, when shopping for a new mascara you'll just open a tube to look at the wand, and on so many occasions I've over looked the 'comb' style wand. I always assumed that a comb would give me the length but not the volume I crave, but I was so very wrong. The thinness of the comb allows me to get right to the base of my lashes without poking myself in the eye, which gives me more volume, I can also twist and turn the wand so any clumping lashes get teased apart. The rubber bristles allow me to easily scrap off excess mascara so I don't apply too much. It dries very quickly, making it very buildable, usually two layers gives me long and full lashes.
There's only one issue with this mascara, the length of the wand makes it so awkward to coat my lower lashes, I usually do the inner half perfectly but when I have to coat the outer half I cover half my face with mascara.
Left: Product free eyelashes | Middle: One Layer | Right: Two Layers
I paid £16.50 for my product, I think this is a fair price, especially seen as there are high street mascaras close to this price.

This product has fast become my favourite mascara, if not my holy grail mascara! Its easy, quick, buildable and makes my lashes ultra long which is everything I could ever want and more in a mascara

Have you used this mascara before? What were your thoughts?
