Clinique have launched a new mascara and its called the ‘Lash Power Feathering Mascara’, which claims to give your lashes full power by boosting the length and give a soft feathery to touch feel. It also states to last 12 hours smudge free and only requires water to take it off!
Let’s take a closer look… the first thing I noticed that I really liked was the brush! I love a big thick brush, it just makes me think volume, rather than a teeny tiny plastic one, but maybe that’s just me. The Clinique packaging is pretty as always, I just love their box design and the mascara is sleek and silver.
I found it went on really easily and didn’t clump, each lash was very well separated and was definitely a light to touch feather feel. Now for the lengthening I’m not so sure it really did that much, it gave a nice effect to my lashes, but I wouldn’t say it made them look really long compared to other lengthening mascaras I have used. The stay proof claim? It stayed on all day without smudging, result! It does come off easily with water, but for me I always use a cream cleanser from Simple as I have very sensitive eyes.
I tried out the mascara with one of the Clinique eye duos in Like Mink. The eyeshadows come in a gorgeous little palette, even with a handy eye guide numbered 1 and 2 to show you where to place each colour. Like Mink has two lovely colours, the first a light golden beige and the second is a smoky brown with a slight shimmer running through it. They both compliment each other so well. I applied the beige to the lid and then worked the brown into the socket to create a really lovely effect. The shadow feels so soft and really nice on and lasts throughout the whole day. Given I did apply Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer beforehand.
The Clinique Feather Lash is £18.00 and and the Duo is £22.00 both available now from John Lewis.
