Back again with another super review from one of my favourite Brand #Clinique.I have been using their skin products for a long time now as i hardly trust any other brand because of sensitive skin. Apart from toners, moisturizers and night cream , I have their loose powder and two lip jars which is extremely recommendable.
Frankly the mascara i have in my stash are all maybelline.Yes i m true maybelline fanatic.You know that its so difficult to buy international brands in our country.Either order online and pay hefty shipping charges or travel a distance to get your hands on these brands.So fortunately in my last trip to a bigger mall in delhi, i broke my maybelline loyalty and bought Clinique Quickliner and High impact mascara.
Quick Liner & High Impact Mascara
Price: 1290 INR & 2095 INR respectively
Yes the price is on the expensive side but then we know all higher end products burn a hole in your pocket
Packaging: The pencil comes in a cardboard tube size box with all the required information embossed in silver. Same goes with the Mascara
Liner is a mechanical pen to one side and a smudge spoolie to the opposite end.As its an automatic twist up pen, it does not require any sharpener.
Glide smoothly to lower lash as kohl/kajal and on the upper lid as liner.Use the spoolie at the other end gently to lower lash above kohl to smudge it giving a perfect smoked out effect.Do not swirl up extra as to avoid drying up fast.Always put the cap on after using.Less contact with air is to longer longevity.You can also use an black or charcoal eyeshadow to make it last for long and smudgeproof.
-With maximum three strokes, Liner gives a dark precise definition to your eyes.
-Silky formula makes easy to line and define.
-It stays in place all day long without budging or smudging
-As most of clinique products are ophthalmologist tested, it extremely safe for sensitive eyes and lens wearers.
-Multiple shades availability.
Due to plastic covering, unable to see how long the pencil lid is.
Do not go back once it’s twisted.
Mascara is an average size tube/bottle with a not so long lash applicator which makes it quite suitable for giving natural look. It’s a waterproof mascara which stands heat and humidity without messing or flaking.Start with using upside motions for few strokes and reverse the action to get the maximum impact. The wand has short thick bristles which can be used to your lower lashes comfortably.
-Gives high impact volume to your lashes.True to their claims
-Does not flakes or clumps on lashes
-Last long till you wash it off
-Does not smudge
-Standup to heat and humidity
Packaging is average.
Imperfect for dramatic looks.
So if you are ready to invest in some high end liner & mascara,this is certainly for you.
