Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara (black) - £11

Bottom eyelashes are sometimes forgotten about. We talk about finding a good mascara which lengthens and thickens top eyelashes but little attention is paid to the bottom. Before I made this purchase I would use my regular mascara and swipe it across my bottom lashes to complete my eye makeup. However half way through the day my mascara underneath my eyes would be down my face or just look clumpy/messy.

This mascara is designed specifically for use on the bottom lashes, it has an average sized handle and mini sized bristles which allow you to coat those hard to get lashes on the bottom lash line. The size of the brush also helps to reach into the corner upper lashes, those that are hard to reach with a normal sized mascara brush. The product is waterproof - a necessity when using on the lower lash line I would say, so it doesn't smudge or flake upon application. The mascara is not designed to thicken, lengthen or add volume but not something we look for when coating our lower lashes. It is a 'long-wearing' formula and does last all day.

The product is ideal when you are travelling or just to pop into your handbag for touch ups on both upper and lower lashes. I think when I run out I will keep the wand and use with other mascaras as this is the most impressive aspect of the product rather than the mascara itself.







This is the first time I have tried a makeup product from Clinique, i've heard the under eye concealor is also good. What Clinique makeup would you recommend?

  1. I have heard that this is good I must get it!
    I think eyes look amazing when the bottom lashes are defined.

    This is not really makeup but I love the Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips- My favourite makeup remover.

  3. Great review! Personally I don't think I would buy a mascara just for my bottom lashes, I just make sure the coverage is good using my regular mascara.
    I swear by their pore refiner - would highly recommend!
    Would love you to check out my latest outfit post :)
    Have a wonderful weekend Hun xoxo

    1. I know how you feel only problem is with my normal mascara it tends to rub down my face underneath, maybe i'm using the wrong one. xx

    1. I'm enjoying using it at the moment. I've tried the clarifying lotion and didn't think much of it, but haven't tried any other skincare. Thanks x
