Oh, hello! A new mascara launch from Clinique ahead – Clinique Feathering Mascara! And, I think it’s their most interesting one yet because it was originally developed for Asia where humidity is a big issue for mascara wearers. The best thing of all is that Clinique Feathering Mascara is pretty much a tubing formula, so it won’t come off and nor should it smudge or flake. The formula is described as ‘toffee like’ but don’t be scared – that’s not a great description; what those words refer to is the stretching ability of the formula, inspired by honey, and when I took the lid off my sample, I did notice a ‘strand’ of mascara. Regular tubing mascaras tend not to have stretch in the formula – they literally coat the lashes. I’ve used tube mascaras before and they’re amazing (I still opt for that type of mascara on my bottom lashes more often than not – I have extensions on my top lashes so use a special extension mascara for those). Tubing mascaras are also good for people who wear contacts as fibres don’t fall away and into the eye.
The brush is nice and full and scoops a decent distribution of formula but it’s not one of those massive brushes so it’s not going to be difficult to use in any way.. I’ve had a little go on the bottom lashes and the colour is a deep, deep black.
Clinique Feathering Mascara will be £18 and launches in April. We’ve still got the gorgeous Clinique Cheek Pops to come yet; I’ll do another post on those with swatches as soon as they launch.

Any mascara that claims to feather is a must try for me – I love the look and so far the best ones I’ve tried are Maybelline the Falsies – Flared and L’Oréal’s false lash flutter effect. Very excited about this one :o) Xx

Ooh this sounds interesting, and I’m not normally fussed by high end mascaras! Liking the sound of the cheek pops though too! Clinique haul in the near future?!
This sounds like a mascara I would like to try! I cleaned out my beauty stash the other day and never knew I owed so many mascaras – but there is room for this one!
I’m not sure about these tubing mascaras. I have one at the minute from Clinique and it’s a devil to get off, although I was told it was very easy to remove and came off it tubes. Mine just comes off in flakes and bits! Maybe I’m doing something wrong.

The best way to take of tubular technology mascaras is just with warm water! It causes the mascara to slip of the eyelashes! I’ve got the B. one which is so easy to get off! 🙂 x
Love the B one.. it’s my go-to for bottom lashes.
This sounds like my kind of mascara! Will certainly be picking this one up when it launches. Becki from http://www.lifelooksperfect.com xx
I didn’t think you could buy these in the UK!
I’m curious though, how on earth do you get the mascara off? I think I’d be terrified if I saw all these little tubes in the sink!
warm water and a flannel or cotton pad xx
Thank you ^-^ I’m definitely going to give this a try 🙂
I love the Clinique high impact mascara it’s one of my absolute faves i’d love to see how this compares, I’m rather excited for a few of the Clinique releases they seem to have lots of exciting product launches x
I use the current Clinique lash power tubing mascara – it doesn’t smudge or flake at all, and to get it off you just gently rub with warm water and your fingers – takes less than 30 seconds 🙂
I have super sensitive skin and my eyes also water a lot so before I found this I had to use waterproof mascara (Lancome is pretty good) but using an eye makeup remover over time causes sore skin around my eyes.
I am never without a back up of the existing lash power, and I’m looking forward to trying the new formulation, thanks for the heads up, Jo 🙂
Interesting.. I like how easy it is to get rid of their original Lash Power, but absolutely don’t like “I’m barely here” effect it has – on me it is just a slight darkening, no extra length and no extra fluff (and I need all the help possible in this area). If the new one gives also a look – it’ll be my swimming days mascara :).
Oooh I’m very intrigued! I think I may have to try it. 🙂 I’ve been using the High Impact mascara by Clinique recently and although it gets a lot of good reviews it didn’t wow me enough to re-purchase but the way you described the consistency of this formula seems right up my alley!
Sounds really good, as soon as it enters the stores here I might give it a try!
Can’t wait to try this! I wear contacts so hopefully you’re right and it doesn’t bother them, I’ll maybe try some other tubing mascaras while I wait.
