Finally getting back to reviewing the 7 mascaras from the SDM Eye Studio Sampler!! I picked up this mascara sampler back in 2016...During a Black Friday Sale. I think it is way past time that I finish up trying out these mascaras and seeing if I can still redeem the coupon for a 'Free' mascara of my choice.
The fifth Mascara up in my review of the mascaras/brow product in the Shoppers Drug Mart - Eye Studio Sampler is the Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara. As I had said in my previous posts, I am not sure if there is an expiry date on the coupon for the free mascara of my choice or not. If you want to see my thoughts on the Artdeco - All In one Mascara, you can find it here, Benefit - Gimme Brow is here, Benefit - Roller Lash right here, and Clarins - Mascara Supra Volume here. There was a new Eye Studio Sampler for 2017, this set contains 7 mascaras as well, but instead of the Benefit - Gimme Brow it has a Stila Eye liner, another great product! If you are interested in seeing what is in the Eye Studio Sampler for 2017, you can check out Stash Matters Epic SDM Haul! It is out of stock online, but if you are interested, try your local SDM!
Inside the box I got 7 mascaras, and 1 Benefit - Gimme Brow, all in deluxe sample size. I love mini mascaras though, I am not the best at remembering when I opened a mascara, so I am sure that I have used full size mascaras past the recommended 3 month period. The deluxe sample sizes last me, if I like it a couple months. Which for me, who seems to have some-timers, (I forgot things sometimes!) is great! That way I am not using an old mascara. You are getting well known brands, Clarins, Lancome, Smashbox, Clinique, Benefit and, for me at least, a lesser known brand in Artdeco.
Clinique - Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara
Big brush, big change. Oversized volumizing brush transforms lashes from fine and faint to bodacious and bold. Rich colour builds easily to the look you want. Ophthalmologist Tested. Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free. (Description taken from the booklet)
I have used, and liked Clinique mascaras so I figured I would end up liking this one as well. The Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara has a huge plastic bristle brush, which is different from other Clinique mascaras I have tried. The mascara went on fairly wet at first but did dry quickly so I didn't end up with mascara everywhere while I waited for it to dry. Unfortunately, this mascara started smudging after about 6 hours, so it didn't make it through a workday. I didn't get to try it out for very long though, I ended up getting a stye in my eye on the third day of using it. So it may have worked better as it got older, but I don't know as I haven't tried this formula before and I didn't have another sample of this one to pul out to try after the stye went away.
Based on the short time I was able to use this mascara I would give it a 3 out of 5.
I wish I had another tube of this to try to see if the formula changed at all after being open for a bit. Have you tried the Clinique - Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara? How was it? Did the formula change over time?
