I always love a new mascara, and this the first one I’ve had drop on my desk in a while. From Clinique – who are, in my opinion, masters of mascara, it’s the new Lash Power Flutter-to-Full Mascara.
It’s particularly special this one in that it it a multi-purpose, adaptable mascara, to suit the mood or situation with just a twist. So, it’s the perfect solution for day-to-night, weekday to weekend lashes.
So, you can go from fluttery natural lashes to full dramatic lashes in a formula that promises not to smudge or flake for 24 hours.
Through new, innovative packaging, a simple twist of the dial on the barrel tightens or loosens the wiper of the brush head and controls the amount of mascara that is deposited on the brush.
For a fluttery look, keep at a tight closure. If you want a more voluminous look, just loosen the closure.
It’s workable for any lash type and eye shape, as the bristles of the brush perfectly comb through lashes and provide length and separation while remaining soft to the touch.
The best way to use it is to turn the dial to desired setting, place the bristles of the brush head at your lash base, and wiggle left to right as you comb through to completely coat and separate the lashes.
Yes, it’s a bit gimmicky, but it’s fun, and the packaging is cute. Alongside this new mascara, Clinique also launch a new eyeliner – High Impact Custom Black Kajal.
This intensely bold kajal-inspired eyeliner has a smooth, easy-glide texture and comes in an automatic propel-only pencil. Inspired by the eye makeup looks of Indian and Middle Eastern women, The highly pigmented formula offers deep, black-toned shades of black, brown, green, and blue that are easy to wear.
