Most Helpful Positive Review High Impact Waterproof Mascara
I really like this product, ladies. I'm a mascara freak and have had trouble finding any one mascara that I really liked during my lifetime of putting on makeup, but this one's a winner! I was using the regular High Impact mascara, but switched to this waterproof one when it came out. I have sensitive eyes and they tend to tear a lot. When I was using the regular one, sometimes the tear would end up messing my mascara and making it run. This one stays in place. I was using the lash primer at first but then tried it without the primer. I like it better without the primer. It comes on smoother and no clumps. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because it takes a while to get it off with regular eyemakeup remover, so I was forced to buy the "Take the Day Off" for lids, lips. It does do a good job but since I use the 24 hour mascara and the bottom lash one, it still takes a while to take it off. At least I don't have to rub hard. But it's worth it, the mascara. My lashes really stand out and my eyes don't tear up. I'm a real Clinique fan!
Most Helpful Critical Review High maintenance
I bought this by mistake (wanted high impact curling - which is waterproof to about 103�). This mascara is great going on but coming off is never a complete job. I've used multiple mascara removers. It appears to be gone but either after the shower or after sleeping...it's on my cheeks. I'd recommend highly High Impact Curly. In hot hot water - like shower or hot tub - it falls completely off your face. No smudging or reminence. But it'll stay on in the rain, swimming, sweating. It's perfect. No matter what the next line says I did NOT receive a free sample of this product or review as part of a sweepstakes. It cost me $24 and I'm throwing it out.

I have been searching for THE best waterproof mascara for me. Been through quite a few, this one is a true standout!
Mari from Delaware
I like it, good mascara
Mitchy from California
I wear contacts, and I have pretty short lashes.
I wanted to give this one a try for a tad bit of a cheaper alternative (compared to my waterproof tarte). I saw it claims to give volume and length and that It was great for contact wearers. This does NOT give length and volume as it claims. The minute I placed this on my lashes, it completely sagged my lashes!!! It also smudges a lot, it left me with raccoon eyes. Will not be repurchasing.
I should have returned it, but I just threw it away...
LOVE CLINIQUE BUT HATE THIS ONE
Pao74 from Virginia
Hi, I can only say that this product has left me VERY VERY disappointed. I love to use Clinique for my skin care routine and also makeup and color, but I had never used their mascara and I decided to give it a try but it is awful, I normally curl my eyelashes with an eyelash curler and as soon as the mascara hits my lashes they fall back flat again, makes look sick and sad. Also it made my eyes very watery, so definitely NOT a good choice for me. Will stick to my skin care regime only with you guys.
Holds up in allergy season and Texas humidity
Kari1024 from Corpus Christi, TX
This is my go-to mascara! I have watery eyes when my allergies get bad and this is the only mascara that works for me. Long days at work, high humidity, you name it, this mascara stays put.
Won't budge, but Clumpy
JennyG from San Diego, CA
This product lives up to its waterproof abilities! However, the formula is super dry and makes my lashes stick together. It is VERY waterproof (awesome!), but won't come off even with a waterproof eye makeup remover.
Marci4tennis from Redding, CA
I've been looking for a mascara that will truly hold up, whether it's just a really hot day, or a sweaty workout, and this one is it! I played tennis in 101 degrees and it didn't budge or flake. I tried the Clinique workout mascara, which also held up well, but doesn't give you much "oomph". The High Impact Waterproof is a nice deep black and has more impact with all the waterproof benefits. It is a little hard to remove, but isn't that the point? I use MAC Cleanse Off Oil for all my waterproof products and it works great. Will buy this mascara again...
Erin from Unknown
I bought this because I was going to the beach and this worked really good! The only thing for me is, is that it kinda rinsed off in the water which I sort of wish it stayed on longer. My eyes stared to burn a bit, but it was probably just because of the salt water in the ocean. The mascara itself is super natural which I love cause I love more natural makeup! So I love this stuff! And it's a good price!
Ckndrfr from Frankfort, KY
I bought this product for the first time. I thought it was a trusted brand, and it was slightly less expensive. The mascara is dry and clumps on the brush after using one week.
Karen from DC area
I usually love this mascara but have noticed that it is not lasting as long and is flaking before the end of the day. Maybe they have changed their formula.
My New Favorite Mascara!!
Ky from CO
I am SO impressed with this product. I don't usually use waterproof but received this in the summer bloom kit and it is amazing for summer! Once it sets it stays in place through heat, sweat and tears!! The texture of the mascara is amazing too and never clumps, so easy to apply without error! Love it, will be my go to from now on!
definitely worth the price!
LTHOMAS from ohio
I do not wear makeup every day, mostly special occasions and I have NEVER spent more then $10 on mascara, I have loved all the Clinique brands of make up I have tried so I decided to give the mascara a try and I absolutely love it! I can definitely justify future purchases of this!

Best Waterproof Mascara Ever!
Clinique Girl NY from New York
I have used almost every brand of mascara on the market and this one is definitely the best. As part of my normal daily makeup routine I use the High Impact (black) mascara. I had received this one free as part of a promotion Clinique was running. When I got it (since I never use waterproof mascara) I put it away where I store my free samples. I was invited to go swimming at my sister-in-law's new pool one Sunday and decided to give it a try. After swimming (underwater & above) it was still in place. It did not smear or smudge. This stuff is absolutely waterproof! It goes on like the regular (which I love) and removed easily with Take the Day Off for Lids, Lashes, Lips. It is also tear proof too - which I tested not planning on it.
Love the mascara, but not the brush so much
Jody T from Royal oak, MI
I have natural lashes and this brush just doesn't grab on as other mascara brushes I've used. I like the long wear though, and while swimming!
No I would not purchase again.
mauijade from Honolulu
I would use a different Clinique mascara.
NO hard rubbing needed!
Barb(ie) from Bolingbrook, Il.
Light hand needed in applying. Goes on with very little clumping. Stays on all day.
BEST mascara ever
Mascara from Detroit, Michigan
This is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. I've always struggled with my mascara running, even with waterproof formulas, and this stuff doesn't run at all. Plus, I love the volume and length it adds
CG from Gainesville, FL
This is the best waterproof mascara that I have found. It does not smear. At all. The most that it does is flake in very small pieces, which are easily wiped away (as opposed to smears), and that is only after you have been in the water a long time. Makeup remover makes it very easy to remove after the beach or pool.

What I was needing!
Trish1 from Versailles, Ky
I was using Maybelline, it kept transferring to my under eye. This one does not, and is easy to remove!
Love love love
Loveit1776 from Florida
This mascara is smooth, easy to apply, love the wand, love the formula. It doesn't transfer to the skin throughout the day. Easy to build for a thicker look.
Clumpy and thick!
Amanda S from Rome GA
I am not new to mascara (almost 40) and I cannot get this stuff on quick enough before it dries clumpy. I end up with sticky clumpy lashes. All day long my bottom and upper lashes stick together. One plus-it has super staying power.
Hope from Az
The only mascara that doesn't clump when putting on, or run after wearing all day.
I love this mascara.
Anne from New Jersey
I love this mascara and have been using it for years. It's the one waterproof mascara that doesn't break me out or give me allergic reactions. You can put one coat on for a natural look and layer it to add volume to your lashes
