Clinique High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara is an uplifting mascara that gives lashes weightless volume with all-day hold.

This gentle, long-wearing mascara with curling polymer sends lashes soaring and keeps them held up high all day. Lightweight mousse-like formula. Clump, flake and smudge resistant. Ophthalmologist tested so even sensitive eyes look bigger, brighter, boosted.

Ophthalmologist tested. Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Works on all lash types. Sweat and humidity resistant. Formulated with lash-conditioning mamey seed oil.
Start at the base of lashes and wiggle brush up to the tip of lashes. Repeat to build.

To apply to lower lashes, hold wand vertically.

Do not pump brush in container, this adds air that can dry out the mascara. To prevent clumping, let mascara dry between coats.

Long-wearing formulas like this have a lot of staying power. Here are two ways to remove it.
  • Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm: Scoop out a coin-size amount with dry hands. Close your eyes and massage balm over lashes and eye area. Apply warm water and massage for about 10 seconds. This gives the balm time to break down tenacious, long-wearing makeup. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a dry cotton pad to remove any residual product.
  • Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips: Saturate a cotton pad with remover and gently press it over your eyes for about 10 seconds. This gives the remover time to break down tenacious, long-wearing makeup so you can sweep it away. Swipe a cotton pad under eyes to remove any residual product. Follow with a gentle face cleanser.

Comments about Clinique High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara:

Got a free sample of this and thought it was the regular high impact mascara. It's awful. The brush isn't as good as the other and neither is the formula. Very clumpy and goopy.

    Comments about Clinique High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara:

    I'm shocked to see so many negative reviews for this mascara! It's funny that what many people hate about the mascara is what I love. I typically have to use waterproof mascara in order to get it to stay on but this formula is long-wearing without being waterproof, meaning it's easier to take off than a waterproof mascara. Do I need to use an eye makeup remove to take it off? Of course. Completely worth it to me to not have mascara that smudges and flakes under my eyes. I can even wear it on my lower lashes which I've not been able to do in years aside from using the Clinque bottom lash mascara, finally I've found a mascara I can use on both my top and bottom lashes without the dreaded mid-day under eye smear.

          Comments about Clinique High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara:

          After trying other mascara's I always come back to Clinique. This masacara stays on, no clumping or flaking and delivers what it promises. Only downside is it is difficult to remove. I use remover then wash my face twice and there is still evidence of mascara.

          Never tried any Clinique makeup before, but I'm so glad that the Clinique lady showed me this mascara. I am loving it - it's light, doesn't clump and you can definitely see it.

            I am very disappointed in this mascara. It is very difficult to wash off and it smears all over my eyes. It also irritated my eyes and I usually use Clinique mascaras.

                  It seems from reviews this curls beautifully but is super difficult to remove. Any tips or should I try your curling mascara instead?

                    Hi! The difference is High Impact Curling Mascara's exclusive continuous tapered, arched brush that lifts and curls every lash. Its long-wearing formula holds curled lashes for 24 hours. Thank you for your question and we can't wait to hear what you think.
