Clarins is a leader in European Luxury Skin Care and a much coveted brand that uses lots of plant extracts. They have targeted skin care and their White plus line is quite famous in India. What people dont know of Clarins is that they have a makeup line too. Some of their products like ‘Instant’ line is quite a cult favorite amongst makeup artists and consumers alike. They have amazing eyeshadows in brilliant textures, lovely sumptuous lipglosses and very good quality foundations in their range.

Ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested, this mascara is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.’

My experience with Â Clarins Mascara:-
First of all I have always loved Clarins mascaras right from the Wonder Length to Wonder Volume as they give the finishes they promise. The mascaras from the brand may be underrated but are something worth trying.
The tube is metallic and easily prone to finger prints. The mascara overall does look rich with its packaging and has that luxurious feel.
Its always better to use the Instant definition mascara on curled lashes to add definition. It has two brushes, a large brush with an extension of a small brush. The former coats each lash and volumizes while the small end defines and covers all the sparse lashes.
This mascara formula is semi liquid and creates a film, which means you cannot apply several coats. I applied one coat from top and bottom of upper lashes with the large mascara and quickly defined with the smaller end to prevent clumps. Any clumps formed were combed through with an eyelash comb. I also applied several coats on the roots of lashes to give a liner like effect.

The formula is intense black and really volumizes and defines as promised. I have used Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara on the other eye to compare.
