I love mascaras! I love how a good mascara can add freshness to the eyes and make you look different without much efforts. Few days back when KK reviewed MAC Upward Lash Mascara – Upward Black, I immediately wanted to grab it. But, then I realised that I own a mascara that’s as good.
Big brush, big change. Oversized volumizing brush transforms lashes from fine and faint to bodacious and bold. Rich colour builds easily to the look you want. Ophthalmologist Tested. Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free.
How to Use:
• Start at lash roots, wiggling brush to last tips.
• Repeat to build.To apply to lower lashes, hold wand vertically.
• Remove with your favourite Clinique eye makeup remover.
This mascara comes in a cardboard packaging with signature Clinique floral print. I feel the packaging is stunning in black and silver. As the name suggests, it is “chubby”, and looks so cute. Of course this is a user friendly and travel friendly packaging. But the show stealer is the brush! I mean, just take a look at the brush and how different it looks.
It is so different from the brushes of drugstore mascaras and that’s where it is correct. The wand is easy to hold and the brush looks useless at first. But, it is an excellent brush that helps to lengthen and volumize the lashes easily. The brush is thick, hence I feel it is not a great brush for beginners. Once I take the brush out of the tube, it comes loaded with a lot of mascara and have to be kinda careful with it.
As I said, it lengthens my lashes beautifully. It also adds volume to the lashes, but not a lot of volume. Since this deep black mascara is super creamy, it does not feel drying or heavy on the lashes. I was quite disheartened after trying Inglot Volume and Waterproof Mascara, but this one came as a welcome change. It does not hurt my lashes and I usually can settle with just one layer of this mascara.
This is not waterproof, and I like my mascaras to be waterproof. But, I can live with it as this mascara feels so comfortable to wear and is so easy to remove. The facts that it is fragrance free and ophthalmologist tested make it even better and perfect for sensitive eyes.
This mascara also holds the curls pretty well and my lashes look perfect even after 8 hours, which I find very impressive. Once you master the application with this one, it gets applied beautifully and does not clump at all. But, I feel that going overboard is easy with this one. I mean, who would want to stop when your lashes begin to look so good after just one swipe of the mascara. With this mascara, I can skip curling my lashes and still it creates a wide-awake look.
Overall, I need not say, I really love this mascara. It is definitely one of the best mascaras I have ever used and I guess it might become my HG mascara too. It makes my eyelashes look so good and you can create everyday to dramatic looks with it, once you master application.
