This is the absolute best mascara I have ever used!! It literally does what it says. I have naturally long lashes, but they're straight and I hate using a eyelash curler (they have never worked for me). This Zero-Gravity mascara lifts, curls, separates and holds my lashes ALL day. It doesn't flake, smudge, or run. I have even cried and it stays put. My lashes look amazing. I used to use two different mascaras (two different brands) to get the results I get with this one mascara. I wear contacts everyday and use eye drops a couple times during the day and there is absolutely no flaking or irritation. It's true that you ONLY need warm water to take it off. I take two cotton rounds and run them under warm water and then put them on my eyes. Wiping in a downwards motion the mascara comes right off (I do repeat that a couple times), no need for eye makeup remover and no more rubbing or tugging on my eyes to get a mascara off! This the holy grail of mascaras!!
I normally use High Impact mascara, but my local store was out of stock when I needed it. I assumed this mascara would be better because it costed more and had a curved brush. I was wrong! From the first application, it applies clumpily, and when it's time to wash it off, it does easily wash off, but leaves little chunks of mascara all over my sink! I'll stick with High Impact. This was worse than any drugstore mascara I have ever purchased and is not Clinique quality.

The mascara clumped, and bits broke off and got into my eyes. It was very irritating. I ended up getting a sty from it.
I went back to using Clinique's high impact mascara, which works great.

This is my favorite mascara ever!! I have sensitive skin & eyes. I don't wear makeup often, but when I do- this mascara never disappoints me. I can wear it multiple days in a row and it's not irritating. I've tried lots of others brand/kinds of mascara and I always get disappointed.. I hate the smudging & smearing that always happens to me. This is the only mascara that stays put, is light weight and always is perfect! Plus I love that it comes off with hot/warm water.

Clumps, flakes, peals off my lashes! The WORST! Don't buy this one! Wish I'd sent it back for a refund but I didn't.

I am very disappointed in this product. It clumps, flakes and gets stuck to my skin when it flakes. It was supposed to be a "tube" mascara where it slides off your lash when you get your lashes wet. It doesn't do that like I was expecting and it is just a mess trying to get it off. Will not be buying it again.

Disappointed to try new advertised product. This is clumpy and flakes off leaving a mess. Long time Clinique mascara user expected better performance.
Christy from Las Vegas
Overall, I really love this mascara. It has serious lasting power and makes my lashes look fuller and longer. I love that I don't have to use makeup remover, just warm water to lightly pull the mascara off my lashes. It never runs or flakes.

This never smears or runs and comes off in tubes easily when you want it to. Love it and hope they never quit making it!

The impact curling was the only mascara I used for probably 20 yesrs. I recommended it to everyone, because it didn't smudge or clump but came off easily with warm water. This new formula is very disappointing. It smudges and clumps within weeks of opemomg. Sadly I've had to switch to a different brand after giving it a couple tries to see if it was just a bad batch. Will not be purchasing again.

Do not get one bit of moisture near this mascara like a tear, raindrop anything it comes off in pieces. Very disappointed in this product. I'm going to have to find something else that is more durable.

I wanted to love this. I usually wear the High Impact on the Hreen tube but wanted alittle volume. Within 10 minutes of putting it on I wanted to scratch my eyes out and it had already started flaking. My eyelash look amazing but not worth the discomfort. Also, I didn't realize it doesn't come off. So that on top of my eyes being sensitive makes me lose most of my eyelashes.

I see alot of people have trouble with this mascara this is a tubbing formula you have to remove with warm water not take the day off. If you take warm water it comes right off but holds up with sweat and humidity

I usually purchase the High Impact Mascara. I love it. We were leaving for vacation and my usual was out of stock. I thought I'd give this one a try. That was a mistake. This is the hardest to remove. Flakes all over your face, and I use the Take The Day Off remover. Your quality is much better than this, please reconsider this product.
* I did make my purchase at Ulta.

I was so disappointed when I ordered this mascara for my daughter's wedding. They didn't have the mascara I normally order, so I tried this. Luckily, I tried it prior to the wedding. Unfortunately, I was on a trip and had to use it, since that is all I had. It was dry, clumpy and flaked all over my face after application. I had purchased 3 tubes for my two daughter's and myself. I am going to try another mascara to see if I have better luck. I have used Clinique make up since 1980, so I have been a loyal customer.

Love this mascara, doesn't smudge or flake off. It washed off with warm water AND I have no sensitivity to it.
Jess from Minnesota
This mascara is ripping my eyelashes out! I am SO careful taking it off - I use "Take the Day Off" and it pulls my lashes out when I brush over my lids. I have to use my DDML as a remover in order to salvage some of my lashes. I'm so bummed. I love Clinique products and this is the first that I have literally disliked and rated.

I LOVE this mascara! It really is the best mascara I've ever used. It doesn't bother my super-sensitive eyes at all and it creates beautiful long lashes. I never have a problem with clumping, flaking, or removing it, (although I always use make-up remover wipes for all of my make-up.) Please keep this formula forever, Clinique!

Made my eyes all red and got bumps on my bottom eyelash line. contact dermatitis. I only tried it twice and my eyes are so red. Now I have to return it.
Liana from Yuma, Az
Left black residue clumps under my eyes and flattened my lashes immediately after applying.
Ashley from Pennsylvania
I love the look of this product and how it doesn't smudge. It immediately brightens my eyes.
With that said, after a few weeks, the formula starts to clump. I haven't had this issue with other mascara from Clinique. It is really disappointing as I really want to love this product, but with the cost, I can't justify the purchase since it doesn't last.
I am always sure to fully seal the product.

Clumpy, to much product comes out on the wand! Bring back Bring back Naturally Glossy Mascara, it was the best!!!
Kelly from Mississippi
I loved the wand but didn't like the product, it goes on great but after a few hours it starts flaking off around your eyes and sticks to your face. I had to use a eye make up remover and regular face wash to get it off. Very disappointed.
Linda from Redding
I have very sparse lashes. It didn't make them show up better than wearing nothing. I did like the curved brush.
