I was sent this mascara as a gift for being one of the first one thousand people to fill in the Times Online beauty survey. I was pleasantly surprised to receive it as normally I am never within such a catchment.  I have had it in my possession for over a month. I must say I do like it, not because its free but it seems to do the job just fine. The wand looks very technical and I bet the engineers over at Clinique spent a lot of money getting this odd wand just right. Thankfully its firm enough yet soft enough to make application easy. I do still prefer a bushy mascara brush but this one gets a thumbs up from me. It costs about £14 and probably add a few more pence.
