Clinique High Impact Mascara...AND A GIVEAWAY FOR YOU LOVELIES!

Do you ever have something in your stash that remains ignored, and then one day you randomly decide to try it and then wonder why you had never used it before? 
I had one of these sad, makeup addict moments when I picked up my tube of Clinique High Impact mascara from the pile of unused items in my room. How had I never used this mascara before!? What’s wrong with me?! I had been griping for weeks now about wanting a new mascara to love, and here it was, languishing under my bed. Oy, oy, oy.

Clinique High Impact mascara manages to give me the fake lash look that I adore without crunchiness, clumping, or flaking!
High Impact comes in two shades: Black/Brown and Black. Clearly, I have the Black formula since I like my lashes to be as dark as possible. It manages to both thicken and add volume to my lashes; I also find that this mascara adds a nice amount of length as well. The best part is that my lashes stay plush and lush all day and all night long, and when I remove the mascara my lashes don’t feel brittle at all. Win!

(Here's a scary pic of me with no makeup but the Clinique High Impact mascara - look at my lashes! WOW!) 
Also, High Impact is much cheaper than my normal mascara of choice, Armani Eyes to Kill. Double win! 
Now, why did I just wax poetic on the Clinique High Impact mascara? Well, Clinique is one of the many brands available at The good people over at Apothica have agreed to sponsor a giveaway for a $25 gift card to use on Apothica, or on or! Awesomesauce!
