Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara


RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $10

THE SKINNY: I really wanted to like this one. As a mascara addict, I have always wanted something that hit those tiny bottom lashes with just the right amount of umph. But Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara does not quite do the job.

I am convinced it is just regular mascara in a tiny, tiny tube with an even tinier brush. The formula is a little goopy for those little lashes and the wide bristled brush does not catch the hairs well. (I have much better luck with my normal mascara, Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes! and it's superior brush.)

Aside from the cutsey container, a slim silver tube with flowers etched on it, I am not impressed. I've used it a few times but cant seem to get the result I want.

The mascara comes in two colors – black and black/brown – so it should pair with most of your neutral mascaras nicely.

KEEP OR TOSS: I will keep playing with it, but probably won't buy it again.

CHECK IT OUT: Bottom Lash Mascara gets great reviews on the Clinique and Sephora websites.
