not smudging

it is easy to remove and best of all, it does not mess with my glasses: leaves no marks, no smudges, and does not wear off rubbing against my glasses during the day

- Macy's User

never clumps or smudges

staying power


it doesn’t clump and it stays on my lashes

- Sephora User

give you good length, and lasts all day

- Sephora User



it slightly lengthens and defines lashes, without clumping and just overall makes your lashes still look like your lashes and not a black clumpy mess

- Sephora User

lengthens lashes very well but keeps them natural and completely clump-free

- Sephora User



it also can build in volume and length with several coats, which is important because i have blonde lashes

- Sephora User

while there are others that may make your lashes look extra thick or long, this one does not flake or clump, does not bother my eyes, and gives my lashes some color

- Saksfifthavenue User



you can change the formula and name it something else, give a it a french name, oscillate it, add fibers and curling enhancers, but when it all comes down to it, this is a darn good mascara

- Sephora User

this lengthens, holds curl, and defines my lashes beautifully without flaking, caking, smuding, or fading

- Sephora User



it doesn't clump, it stays pretty well for not being waterproof, it goes on thinly but layers wonderfully, it doesn't irritate (i wear contacts so this is a big concern for me), and it has a wonderful natural look

- Clinique User

if you are looking for water-proof, this isn't for you

- Sephora User



clinique naturally glossy mascara is a wonderful product because it never clumps, applies smoothly and delivers a natural look to lashes that lasts

- Macy's User

great for everyday

this is my all-time favorite mascara. i don't like to wear heavy makeup (only for nighttime, special occasions, etc) because i like a natural looking face for everyday. this mascara is my one and only for that type of look. it really defines well, adds just enough color, and plumps and lengthens my lashes just enough. i have really short, sparse lashes, and naturally glossy (in black) makes my lashes look longer and fuller without them looking clumpy and over-mascara-ed. and i must say, even when it dries out it's still pretty useable. it doesn't get all flaky and gunky like other mascaras do. although using it at that point isn't the most sanitary thing to do, it'll still works in a pinch! :)

Natural looking, but better than naked lashes!

It seems I'm in the minority these days in that I don't want fake looking lashes. I see many people in different forms of media and in real life with so much makeup on that I wonder what they're trying to cover up and their (I'm assuming) fake lashes look so thick and heavy I wonder how they manage to keep their eyes open? I want to look like the best version of me without looking made up. Clinique has been my go to brand for natural looking foundation, blush and lip color for years and while I've always been blessed with thick, dark lashes as I get older they've become thinner. This is the perfect, natural looking mascara that simply makes your natural lashes look their absolute best lengthening and darkening just enough, but not too much. If you want a more pumped up look, you can also "build" it up with multiple applications to further define, separate and lengthen lashes. Whether you apply once or multiple times, it never flakes or clumps and it's super easy to apply without getting on your eyelid or smearing in places you don't want after you've already applied foundation and/or powder. This is now a must have in my beauty bag! LOVE this mascara! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

My new favorite!

I had mixed luck with my last Clinique mascara attempt, but I'm glad I decided to give them one more chance. I really love this mascara! My lashes are pretty average when I don't have anything on--they're not super long or super short, not thick or thin. However, they're not so sparse/thin that I wouldn't run out to do errands without mascara. This mascara comes in a great little metal tube. For some odd reason, I really like that! There's no label on it other than the usual "C" at the top of the cap, so it looks sleek and cute in my bag. In terms of performance, this mascara is great! It coats well, makes my lashes look dark but natural with one coat. If I build to two or three coats, I get a flirty doe-eyed fringe that doesn't look too dramatic. It's definitely not a false lash effect, but it makes my lashes look lush...and real! I've noticed it makes my lashes look longer, though it's not doing quite as much in the volume department (like I said, not a falsie effect). I also like that my lashes don't feel "crunchy," even after multiple coats. The brush head is fairly small, which makes snagging those tiny little inner lashes a breeze. If you coat your bottom lashes, I'd imagine this wand would work well for that too. I like that the wand itself is long enough that I can put my mascara on without fearing I'm going to poke myself because I can't get in there. This mascara did not flake or transfer on me, which is just short of a miracle. I usually always get flakies by lunchtime, and since my office doesn't have AC, I tend to get raccoon eyes from the heat too. I'm thankful this stuff really seems to stay put. On the other hand, it comes off super easily with warm water and my gentle cleanser at night. No scrubbing or tugging necessary. All in all, if you're looking for a product that will boost your natural lashes without looking super glam, this is a good bet. Good staying power, no flaking/smudging, and no eye irritation - a winner in my book. At this price, it's hard to turn down too. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

No gloss

I really really wanted to love this as I like a more natural look and thought the gloss might add a little pop to my eyes without going overboard, but the gloss aspect was a no-show (on me at least). As far as a mascara in general, it was okay and did define, but for about $3 (as opposed to $14), I can wear Wet & Wild Mega Length which doesn't clump either and adds the same amount of definition. I don't want to pay $11 more for a mascara that doesn't have the gloss it advertises. Maybe the Clinique just doesn't work w/ my chemistry... who knows.

I really like this stuff alot, its perfect for a natural look. I bought it to wear to work, I work in a factory where heavy make-up is a no-no. I was blessed with long thick lashes but they are very light, and blond at the roots so this basically darkens them for me,and lengthens with no clumps, smears,smudgies and nothing to flake on to my contact lenses. I'd also think this would be a younger teen girls perfect first mascara as its pretty fool proof and impossible to get that "I-don't-know-what-I'm doing-yet look" Don't buy this if you want a falsie/saturday night out/HEY LOOK! IM WEARING MASCARA look, you wont get it with this. And its perfect for the bottom lashes, no spidery looking clumpies here!
