Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara in Portly Plum

Mascara is definitely one of those things I do not tend to get excited about.  I can't even remember the last time I bought one!  I will typically just choose a mini mascara as a reward if I am placing an order on Sephora, and that carries me through until the next time I can spend 100 points to get a sample.  This has worked well for me for quite some time! However, I saw the Clinique Chubby Lash mascara online in the shade Black Honey, and was very intrigued.  I went onto Sephora's website and saw that there were several other colours as well.  I opted for the shade Portly Plum, which is just as the name suggests, a plummy maroon colour.

I was slightly intimidated by the shade when I opened the tube.  It is epicly purple.  In the picture below, you can see what the mascara looked like after one coat on my top lashes.  It definitely has a noticable colour to it.  I love it, because I think it brings out the green tones in my hazel eyes.  The colour is only noticable if you are in brighter light, and the person is fairly close to your face.  It is one of those, "if you can see the colour of my mascara, then you might be too close", situations.  I think it is subtle, and quite lovely.

Right eye, no mascara for comparison.

If you compare the two pictures above, one with, and one without mascara, I think you can see that this product provides some pretty decent length and volume.  I have medium to long lashes, and this mascara gives them that extra pop.  I have quite a small space between my top eyelid, and my eyebrow, so I know a mascara is decent when my lashes almost touch my eyebrows.

I experienced no clumpiness, or flaking from this product, and it removed quite easily at the end of the day.  The price is pretty reasonable at $20 per tube, considering how expensive some drugstore mascaras can be (I'm looking at you, Physician's Formula!).

I definitely want to try some other shades.  Perhaps the teal next?

Which shade would you want to try?


  1. I love the purple shade on you! I've only recently started using coloured mascaras, and I'm surprised by how much I like them! Also, your photos are spot on. So gorgeous.

    1. Thanks! I am really liking it, and I can't wait to try more shades :)


  2. This probably sounds weird but those are fabulous eye pictures!! did you take them on a tripod to get them so clear? I tried to do some similar shots not too long ago and had such a hard time with it. Your green/hazel eyes are beautiful!

    1. Thanks! I took them with my Canon Rebel T5i using a softbox light. The auto-focus makes it easy to take the pics without a tripod :)
