Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara Review

The Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara is definitely a "YouTube made me buy it" product. I haven't seen that many people talking about it, but those that do speak highly of it. This is one of those products that is just fun to try out because it's not a necessity (I guess no makeup really is, but you know what I mean!). You don't need a tiny mascara with a tiny wand only to be used on your bottom lashes, but hey, it can be difficult to get them all coated, particularly the ones in the corners, so why not give it a go?

I got mine in 01 Black, but it also comes in Black/Brown. Clinique claims this is a long-wearing formula and is smudge-resistant for up to 24 hours. I don't wear any makeup for 24 hours, but I have worn it an entire day and have had no smudging and little to no flaking. I don't have a problem with smudging generally, it's the flaking that is problematic for me, but I haven't really noticed that with this product.

As you can see, it is quite small- it's the size of a sample tube of mascara. Also, the bottle is very pretty, a gray and silver with a silver metallic floral pattern going around. The website says the bottle contains a 90 day supply, which is how long you're supposed to keep a regular mascara anyway, and is $10.

It does make getting the lower lashes and corners easier, but it does take longer than a regular mascara, of course. Because it's so concentrated, it's easy to get a little blob of product on your lashes or water line, so I recommend wiping the wand off around the top an extra time or two before you start applying it to your lashes.
I tried to get a close-up of just my eyes, but the lighting wasn't right and I couldn't zoom all the way in because the second picture is slightly out of focus and was too blurry zoomed in! Hopefully though, you can see the difference from these pictures. The mascara does lengthen the lashes well and gives them some volume.

Overall though, I don't think I'd repurchase this. It's a fun thing to have and to use, but it isn't life-changing. However, if you do have a problem with smudging on your lower lashes, I would recommend you give this a try because it could solve your problems.

Have you guys tried this out or heard anything about it?

  3. I really want to try this now! I thought that the smudging and flaking with this would be terrible, but I guess not!
