If you’re makeup crazy like me then you’ve probably already heard of the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara ($10). I am constantly hearing people rave and rave about how much they love it. Since it is so inexpensive, I finally broke down and bought it so I could see what all the hype is about.
There are two colors available; plain black and then a black/brown shade. I chose the lighter black/brown color to keep it from looking too harsh under my blue eyes.
What works best about this mascara is the tiny brush. It’s shaped exactly like the Benefit Gimme Brow brush but a touch smaller. That small size lets you get in nice and close to your bottom lashes without making a complete mess of your makeup.
The brush neatly glides through your bottom lashes and keeps them nicely separated. It adds a bit of extra length while keeping them nicely defined.
You get no clumping issues with this one and it does not flake or smudge at all. Even after 12 hours of wear, I don’t experience any transfer. Usually any mascaras that are not waterproof transfer to my oily cheeks after about 6 hours so this is awesome!
I love how natural it leaves your bottom lashes looking. They don’t look like you’ve piled on a bunch of harsh, clumpy mascara. And it removes so easily too with simple facial wipes.
I can now see why everyone loves this little guy. I typically avoid using mascara on my bottom lashes because of the way it looks but not now. I’ve now added this into my makeup routine since it’s so easy to use and performs so darn well!
