Clinique Maskara Review : Clinique Naturally Glossy Maskara , Clinique High Definition Lashes, Clinique High Lengths Maskara, and Clinique Lash Doubling Maskara

My Clinique Maskara Stash

by Ayapowers

I have big, almond eyes and what I need is to just emphasize them to make them seem even bigger. I play around with my eye make-up at times but no matter what look I want to have on certain days, maskara always plays a big role.


Just like everyone else, I also had my nightmarish encounters with maskaras. How about it's just  midday and you're already looking like a panda?

I kinda perfected putting on fake eyelashes, thanks to Youtube make-up guru Michelle Phan, and as inspired by Kim K and the Jersey Shore girls.  Being the timebeater me, I cannot do it everyday for work. So I'd always come back to maskaras that can do the job with my 10-minute daily make-up routine!

Alright, so what maskaras do I recommend or currently use? But let me tell you first, I use two to three different maskaras at a time to create long and thick eyelashes just like having the fakeys.

Clinique Naturally Glossy Maskara 





This maskara has gel-based formula which keeps the eyelashes silky. It is also smudge-proof. This is what I call my basic maskara and I use when I want the au naturel look as it is not that thick and does not clump. This is also the first maskara I put on in my long-and thick-eyelashes routine.

I usually use three coats to create the definition I wanted for my eyelashes. This maskara does not lengthen nor thicken but this creates the most natural looking eyelashes.

The Clinique Naturally Glossy Maskara I am currently using comes with the Clinique Glosswear for Lips.

Clinique High Definition Lashes





This maskara did not win Allure Editors Choice Award for nothing. Sad to say, I just recently found out about it but am happy to have it now. I like the two-sided wand with one side that aims to give length and other side of the brush to give definition. Want to make your eyes pop? This, my friend, is the answer. 

It does not smudge nor clump. It only takes one's patience to perfect using the applicator because of it having a two-sided brush which makes it bulky, it tends to touch the upper eyelid especially when you have shaky hands. 

It is also so easy to remove the product off my eyelashes. My Cetaphil Toner does the job in removing the residue but water can also be just good. But with whatever product you use to the eye area, you should always not be heavy-handed in your application as the skin in the eye area is sensitive. You don't want crow feet early in your years, right? I don't. 

This is the second maskara I use after using Clinique Naturally Glossy Maskara to create the fake eyelashes look.


Clinique High Lengths Maskara 


I fell in love with the cute green willow applicator the first I saw it. The long and thin curved brush separates the lashes, reaches the lashes that normal applicators don't, and builds up volume. This is perfect for the bottom eyelashes because its applicator will not touch the skin underneath. It coats each lash individually and nothing is ever spared. 

The only downside to the product is that is smudges easily but this is still manageable.  Overall, this is a brilliant product. I am overly pleased with it and glad to have discovered another great product from Clinique. 


Clinique Lash Doubling Maskara

Want maximum volume on your eyelashes? Clinique Lash Doubling Maskara has that for you and more! If you have to buy just one maskara, I say this should be it or the Clinique High Definition Lashes. If Kim K or Twiggy were to use drugstore products, this must be the first ones they'd buy. 

The wand is loaded with product already so no need to double dip. From the name itself, this product gives double volume, double length, and double thickness.

Not a perfect product though as it tends to give you panda eyes if you sweat or when you wash your face, so you'd better check yourself in the mirror once so often. This is not the maskara to wear at the beach, gym, or on all-night partying because of its tendency to smudge. 

This is still a must-buy and a must-have for me as this is a product I can use everyday. 

There are tons of products in the market that you can choose from. I also love Maybelline, Cover Girl, and Elizabeth Arden maskaras, just wait for my next reviews. ;p 

Whatever brand of maskara you choose, always be guided with the effect you want for you lashes and ask yourself these questions --

* Does it lengthen my lashes?
* Does it thicken my lashes?
* Does it add volume?
* Does it clump, clot, and smudge?
* Does it fit my budget?
* It is safe to use for sensitive eyes and for contacts-wearer? It is opthalmologist-tested? 

Do not buy products from fake brands. There are less expensive alternatives that carry their own brands but could still give you the same effect as the known brands. 
                                                      
                                                                                                    **My fake eyelashes ;p**

Diamond Peel @Dermaesthetique Ortigas Review

It has been a week since I had my diamond peel treatment at Dermaesthetique in Ortigas but, yeah, it's never too late to share my experience. I went with my friend Jacky who frequents Dermaesthetique for diamond peels and IPLs. We went to the clinic in Ortigas although, as I found out, also has a branch in Quezon City.
Jacky and I rode a cab from ABS-CBN in QC and took the EDSA route going to SM Megamall. She said she wanted to go to the mall first before heading to the clinic, which is just at the back of building A. We bought some stuff at the National Bookstore and headed to the supermarket to get milk tea at Tea 101. Jacky was so happy upon knowing that the prices of the milk teas in the SM Megamall branch of Tea 101 cheaper than the Tomas Morato branch. We ordered Rock Salt Choco-- the taste was just heavenly!! I wanted to buy lumpia but Jacky told me not to as she said I might smell like vinegar when we have our diamond peel so I just got California Maki.
The building where De…

Wakanatsu Yakiniku, As Quaint as it Gets - A Short Review

I had not eaten in a Japanese restaurant for the longest time and so I did not really know what to expect when my sister and her husband invited me, along with my mom and my sister-in-law and my niece, to eat in Wakanatsu Yakiniku, a quaint Jap resto. I, of course, know of sushis, sashimis, and tempuras and that's about it.

Wakanatsu Yakiniku is located on the second floor of a buiding in front of Wishing Well bar in Angeles City.

The restaurant offers unlimited Japanese food. Forgive me but all I have are few photos and not a list of food of what we've eaten. It is the experience I had which I would like to share.

Wakanatsu Yakiniku could sit less than a hundred customers, with about ten tables. It is relatively small for a place that offers unlimited food.  It is quiant but I could not say cozy.

When we arrived in the restaurant, the first words I heard from the servers were "tanggalin po shoes nyo" ("take off your shoes") and not pleasantries nor greeti…

Nouvelle Clinic: A Review

I finally found time to go a skin clinic, this, with some prodding from my cousin Claudine. She said she has complementary vouchers from Nouvelle Clinic and we could have free diamond peeling. Nouvelle Clinic in Angeles City is relatively new. I think my cousin and I are one of the clinic's first customers. 


I had diamond peeling done on me quite a lot and I know which clinics do good and which ones are worth going back to, and Nouvelle is. 
We were greeted by the owner, whose name I forgot to ask. All I know is that we met fab fashion designer Brit Tripudio who is a brother of the owner. I really do not know as I have not asked a lot of questions. Brit said the grand launching of the clinic is in June. 
I would not want to delve on the prices but I could say their services and products are reasonably priced. The diamond peeling we had is for free and all we paid was the facial, and yes, what we paid was worth it although I hope the cleansing facial was a bit longer and more intense.…
