Although I mentioned the gift with purchase item I got for purchasing this set in an earlier post (All About Shadows), the Clinique Lashes Top to Bottom Set is what I set out to get originally. The set is available (as of the time of this post) here (it is available in most retailers that sell Clinique items). It's a mascara sampler with 3 deluxe sample mascaras, and full sized Bottom Lash Mascara.

The packaging gives a nice illustration of the mascara effects, along with a quick summary of what the mascaras accomplish (shown above).
High Impact Mascara is formulated to provide lusher, plusher, bolder lashes for a dramatic look. I've had the full-sized version of this mascara in the past, and I actually already really love this mascara. It does lengthen and give enough volume to give your lashes fabulous definition. I honestly don't think this mascara gets enough love. The brush is a traditional bristle brush that's medium sized with equal width throughout. The bristles are very densely packed, while still have space between the bristles to prevent clumping.
Note: As I take pics of the mascaras in action, I'll put it in this post. I figured it's more important to see the contents of the set prior to it being sold out and no longer available.
Lash Power Mascara Long-Wearing Formula on the top lashes only. About two coats. You can see it gives some length and some volume. It's meant to be more of a long-wearing formula more than anything else.
Lash Doubling Mascara on the top and bottom lashes. Sorry for the slightly fuzzy picture, but you get the idea that my lashes look fuller.
Bottom Line: This is a nice little set to try out some different mascaras from Clinique. Especially if you consider the fact that there are often gifts with purchase available, you can get this set and a bunch of other products for a great price. There is a full sized item in this set as well, the Bottom Lash Mascara.
