Product Review: Clinique Lash Power Mascara.

I’ve got a secret to let you in on. I understand you probably wont believe me, but everything I’m about to tell you is true!

After years & years of suffering from the dreaded “Ailuropoda melanoleuca” affliction, I’ve been cured. I’m free, I’m not a slave to this condition anymore!

I no longer get panda eyes!

Peculiar animal genus names aside, panda eyes are a well known side-effect of:

a) not removing makeup before bed, usually due to alcohol consumption prior in the evening
b) up close and personal passionate liaisons
c) sessions at the beach/pool where you foolishly forgot you were wearing mascara.

Dear me!

Clinique Lash Power Mascara changes all that.

Originally drawn to it from hearing rave reviews about the interesting & kinda fun method of removal*, I picked up Lash Power in Onyx a fair while ago and haven’t looked back.

It applies well, gives the lashes length & thickness, but most of all the staying power is second to none. It goes all day & all night without smudging. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve fallen asleep with it on (horrible I know!) and woken up in the morning with ABSOLUTELY NO SIGN OF ANY BLACK UNDER EYE MONSTROSITIES!

It’s a miracle, for sure and it’s going to take some pretty hefty convincing to knock this baby off my Ultimate Mascara Winner’s Pedestal

While the tube looks smaller than many other products, it’s been going strong for 3 months so far with me and I use it every day.

Totally love this product and do get a bit crabby when I accidentally leave it at work over the weekend because I am a complete scatterbrain that also likes to have good eyelashes at work.

* Jump in the shower or get some warm water going in your basin, carefully wet your lashes with said warm water, twist your lashes lightly with your thumb & forefinger – VOILA! Little mascara tubes / wormies in your hands!

RRP $38 AUD – Available at Clinique counters.

Be well,
