"This does not live up to its claim!"

This was yet another mini product by Clinique that I received in a free gift some time ago by Clinique. I already owned the lash power mascara and loved it so I had high expectations of this one too.

This one is called lash doubling mascara and is meant to magnify lashes to twice their size and thicken them to maximum volume. A special precision brush assists in this very visible up-sizing to coat each lash evenly, lushly while working its thickening magic. It also apparently measures up in the wear department too, with no clumping, smearing or flaking.

The first time I tried this I remember being left a little disappointed, this definitely did not make my lashes appear twice their size. Considering this is its main purpose! However, it was very easy to apply, I start at the roots of my lashes and wiggle the brush so that lashes get between the bristles. I don't usually wiggle the brush and just do a quick few swipes up my lashes when applying mascara, but this is what Clinique advised you to do with this mascara. As a result, my lashes were all separated neatly and there was no clumping visible. This did make up for the lack of the lash doubling with this product.

I usually don't carry mascara around with me during the day for the fact that a few coats throughout the day usually means my lashes will start to clump together and look completely fake and messy! However, I found this mascara helps to separate my lashes and as it is only small I now carry it around with me. This is the only mascara I would use when topping-up my make-up during the day as it doesn't ruin the look of my lashes even though I already have mascara on. It does not make my lashes appear longer and so that is why I stick to another mascara for this and instead use this lash doubling one as a little top-up for extra beautiful lashes!

For what I use this for, I will not be buying a full size bottle when I have ran out as it costs £15. I would rather buy Cliniques lash power mascara which I love. I would recommend this for anyone who would like beautifully seperated lashes and if you are willing to pay £15 for it, but don't expect your lashes to look double their size and do not buy it for that reason, as in my experience it does not do that!

This is available at Clinique counters in many department stores such as Debenhams and Boots, and also on many websites online including Amazon, but I found it costs more on there so you might be better off going directly to a Clinique counter for this. I am deducting 2 stars for the fact that it does not make your lashes appear double the size like it claims to, and for the price.
