Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara Review: Eh!

Clinique Claims that its Lash Doubling Mascara-
Magnifies lashes to twice their size. Thickens them to maximum volume. In minimum time. Unique tapered brush finds every lash. For bigger, better lashes. Ophthalmologist tested.”

For me, i rarely ever invest in high end brand mascara’s. See, mascaras are like flings, they last a short time, they are fun when they last  but try and stretch them post what theyr intended to last and they turn dry in lesser than a second. Hence- my advice in mascaras is usually to go cheap. I got this one as a sample pack (Big size for a sample !!!!!) when my aunt when to sephora- they give these goodies away at sephora in sample sizes apparently .

Anyhow, i had read great reviews about this so i was quite excited to try it out and this is what i thought:

What i like about the Clinique lash doubling mascara
  • Does not clump at all!! 
  • Does not dry out easily. I mean this was good for a year almost !
  • The wand is nice- great thickness of the bristles and easy to apply with a sturdy handle

What i dont like about the Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara
  • It doesnt do anything on the volume front. Zilch. 
  • All it does is elongates the lashes and that to not to a great extent. Definitely not lash doubling at all.

This is with Mascara…err…Theyr still puny!

Overall Verdict: 2.75/5

Price: Rs 900/- or 14.50$

Will i Repurchase: Nope.It doesnt do what a mascara is supposed to

Recommendation: I dont know if its just me, but i dont get the big deal about this. Yes it lengthens the lashes but it adds zero volume. Definitely not a keeper for me

@Karen, as is apparent- i didnt !!

@indianmakeupways- I was really dissapointed…i mean yes there is lengthening but NO volume..

The wand looks very good. but I had used a Rimmel mascara which has a wonderful wand. True, even I feel investing in high end mascaras are nothing but waste. but to get them as free samples is always welcome ;)
