Clinique High Lengths Mascara and Long Last Glosswear in 10 Air Kiss - review and FOTD

Good evening girls!

I hope you're all like me, enjoying the Jubilee Concert right now! OMG Sir Elton was amazinggg! 

Recently my boyfriend's mum gave me a little wash bag with a couple of miniature make up treats inside. It included a mini No7 Exceptional Definition mascara which went STRAIGHT in my handbag lol as well as mini Clarins treatments. It also included two miniature Clinique products - the High Lengths Mascara and Long Last Glosswear in Air Kiss - as seen below:

 Clinique High Lengths Mascara in Black

 As I mentioned, the product is sample size but as you can see from the pics, it's a curved brush. I have to say I wasn't expecting much from this product as when you look at the brush there's like no bristles? However you just have to look at the picture below to see how wrong I was...

So here's a pic of my lashes before (naked!) and after using Clinique High Lengths Mascara:

As you can see, my eyelashes are practically non-existent, yet after using the Clinique High Lengths Mascara they look elongated and separated. I love the effect!

Here's another pic just to see how much better they look:

I am shocked that the High Lengths Mascara made such an impact on my short, stumpy lashes. I will definitely look into buying this mascara in the future! I've used the High Impact mascara by Clinique in the past and LOVED it so I may opt for the High Impact Curling Mascara that seems like the best of both worlds!

The full size Clinique High Lengths Mascara retails for £16.00 and can be purchased online here.

 Clinique Long Last Glosswear in 10 Air Kiss
 Next up is a miniature lipgloss in the shade Air Kiss. It features a standard doe foot applicator, which is my fave! Yes it's quite small, but it's perfect for popping in your handbag.

Swatches of Long Last Glosswear in Air Kiss:
(left without flash, right with flash)
 It's a really lovely, muted baby pink that doesn't feature any shimmer or glitter. 

So here's my lips before and after:
It's such a natural shade that adds just the right amount of sheen to your lips. It's really soft to apply and doesn't leave you with a horrible sticky feeling like some lipglosses do! 

The full size Clinique Long Last Glosswear retails for £14.50 and can be purchased online here.
