Most Helpful Positive Review IT'S FINALLY BACK
First of all, tubing mascara is one of the greatest cosmetic inventions EVER. I cannot for the life of me understand why everyone doesn't use it. I have very oily skin and am very sweaty, so I always used waterproof mascara. But even that would smudge and smear by the end of a work day or night out. I never have that problem with tubing mascara. It's seriously like a miracle. The ONLY downside is that if you have straight lashes (which I do), you will have to curl them before AND after application. However, I have tried several tubing mascaras now, and Lash Power is by far the best at holding a curl! Even Clinique's High Impact Curling Mascara (also a tubing formula) doesn't hold the curl as well as this one does. They pulled Lash Power out of stores a few months ago to do a reformulation and I entered full on panic mode. I have been stalking their instagram and harassing them on Twitter to get a re-release date AND IT'S FINALLY BACK. Get this mascara. You won't regret it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Extremely difficult to remove
I definitely have a love/hate for this mascara. It lengthens really well but doesn't hold curl very long. It is very resilient, so much so that it's kind of a bad thing. I have never had such a hard time removing mascara. I've tried just warm water, wet cotton balls, precleanse, as well as my botanics eye makeup remover. All I ever manage to do is smudge it around under my eyes and it sticks to my skin like glue. It's incredibly frustrating. I am going to try one of Clinique's own eye make up removers and will update this review with results. But so far, I'm ready to find a different tubing mascara.

Love this! Easy removal too.
The only non waterproof mascara that does not smudge/flake
Eva from Maryland
I have repurchased this mascara seven times. This is the first tubing mascara I tried that worked for my very sensitive eyes. I love that it is very long lasting and does not bleed, transfer or flake. This formula is usually very easy to remove with just warm water, so it will not damage and remove as many lashes as a comparable waterproof mascara. However the last two tubes I purchased in the shade dark chocolate I believe were from a bad batch or old. The last two I had a very difficult time removing with warm water (would leave a warm saturated cloth over my eyes and even tried conventional makeup removers). These last two tubes also seemed very dry and I had to throw away after about a month of use. I repurchased my most recent tube in the black shade and it seems more normal with less issues removing.
Too difficult to remove
Linda from Florida
This is mascara goes on smoothly and looks natural. However, I purchased tubing mascara because it should be easy to remove. This was not. It required two rounds of oil based make up remover and I had to pull off some lashes.
First impression... WOW!!!
OJL81571 from West Virginia
This review may be a little premature, but my very first, fresh out of the tube reaction is this mascara was made in heaven. I just started wearing contacts. So I looked up information as to which mascara would be contact friendly. Clinique Lash Power Long-Wearing Formula came up in many articles AND was reviewed very highly right here on Ulta. So I figured I would give it a shot. When I opened the the tube and pulled out the wand, I noticed that the brush was WAY smaller than I am used to (Tarte Lights camera Lashes). So I was a little bit unsure. Then I applied the mascara and was blown away. The brush separated my lashes and actually curled them as well. I always apply 2 coats and that really gave my lashes a very beautiful dramatic affect. Even my lower lashes popped. So far, I love this mascara, but the most important thing has yet to be determined, and that is anti-flaking/smudging so as not to irritate my new contacts and eyes. So far, it has lived up to everything else touted, so I am confident that those claims will come to fruition as well.

My skin is very oily and other mascara's smudge and flake. This is the only mascara that seems to stay on and is really long wearing.
Cried during a wedding and it stayed!
Sarah from Greenwood SC
I went to a wedding and cried like a baby and it still didn't move! At least not much!
Stacey from Wayne, PA
Love this! I put it on and it's a nice easy brush to use. Goes on nicely, no clumps. Isn't as good for lengthening than some but I really needed something like this bc I was getting mascara Rub off on my lids. So annoying. This is great!! Stay where I put it, and the removal is easy too. No probllems!!
I love this mascara.
LR from TN
This mascara doesn't flake, smear, or run when you tear up. You can remove this mascara fairly easily with micellar water or a make-up remover wipe.
Would return, just don't have time
T from McKinney, TX
Really frustrated with this mascara. The sales person touted it being easily removed with soap and water. Not the case at all.
The BEST MASCARA EVER FOR BUSY LADIES!
Mel, the spaz from Newport News, VA
The ONLY makeup I wear daily is mascara, and the Clinique I used to get (waterproof), was sold out at our local Ulta, so the super nice sales associate referred me to this, promising I would not regret it... I begrudgingly agreed and am now addicted! I work in a construction environment, in and out of weather, buildings, ships, running all day, and this stuff NEVR RUNS! I have SUPER oily skin and end up sweating all year, from running so much, and I used to look like I'd gone 3 rounds with Mike Tyson with other mascaras. The waterproof worked great for top lashes, but would wear off bottom lashes... but this... this is PERFECTION!
Classic beauty from South Carolina
I love this mascara , I have the Dark Chocolate brown . The brown is perfect for my pale skin with green eyes . I really appreciate the fact that a brown mascara is still ordered as it is very hard to find nowadays. This is natural and doesn't clump or smudge.
Tootles from Haughton, LA
It is a great product because it separates each lash and does not clump.
The best mascara!
Angela from MI
This has been my go-to mascara for years. I love that it's waterproof but can be removed with hot water! Before I found this mascara every other kind I tried left dark circles under my eyes, and this has never done that.
Definitely Long Wearing
Chill850 from North FL
The heat and humidity in FL take a toll on my mascara. Often times, it smudges or flakes by the end of the day. This mascara doesn't do either. I don't have to worry about smears under my eyes or flakes, which is great. Now the downside - I can't say this mascara does anything to lengthen or add volume to my lashes. Also, the tube and wand seem shorter than normal which makes the application a little awkward. I won't repurchase this mascara.
Hannah from OH
Was suggested this as an alternative to thrive cosmetics mascara due to the fibers in it. The store did not have thrive in stock so I tried Clinique's version. It didn't do much for my lashes though - I get better results from Essence purple mascara. It also doesn't come off as easily as thrive does.
Absolutely the best mascara.
BJMcVJ from Jackson, MI
Was given this product as a gift years ago. Have tried others along the way, but keep coming back to it. Now it's the only mascara I use.
Not what I thought it was going to be.

Will NEVER buy another mascara
Lauren from Boulder, CO
I have been trying to find the perfect mascara for the past decade. I eventually gave up on my journey, admitting defeat. I only picked up this mascara because it was the only brown mascara I could find and thought that if it flaked like every other mascara I had ever owned it would be less noticeable.... little did I know I had found the holy grail. I cannot say enough good things about this mascara!!! It goes on so smoothly, my lashes never clump, it lasts all day, and it doesn't weigh my lashes down.
Only mascara I can use
KI from NJ
This is the only mascara I can use, all others smudge on me. Easily comes off with warm water.
Always a Good Product
Jean from Bellingham, MA
I have a hard time finding mascara in brown. The majority of mascaras come in black/brown which is still too dark for me. Clinique is one of the very few that has it plus my eyes are sensitive. All around a good pick for me.
I love it.
Lorelei from Portland
I love the chocolate color. I'm a redhead.
The best on-the-go mascara!
Happy Eyes! from Mendon, MA
Seven years ago, I developed an allergic reaction to the mascara I was using. After trying a variety of name brands, a woman from Clinique introduced me to Lash Power Mascara Long-Wearing Formula. Since then, I haven't had any issues!! I love it because it doesn't smear and it washes off with mild soap and warm water!!
Clumpy, sticky, didn't separate
LL from SC
I was using a Clinique mascara that I loved but saw that this one had slightly better reviews. Big mistake. This one makes my lashes look awful. I have only used twice and I'm going to throw it away. I would buy a drugstore $7 mascara over this one any day
Great for sensitive eyes
Country Girl from Middleport NY
I apply this mascara often, for dress up or just to look nice. This product really enhances my eyelashes without looking clumpy. It stays on well and removes easily with makeup remover.
