New to the Clinique Mascara Family, the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
It's no news if you are a regular reader to my blog, that I have not been blessed in the lashes department. I actually tend to not put mascara on my bottom lashes, because it just emphasizes their sparseness, and just makes it look more pathetic, in my opinion.
Could this change routine? I happily ran to Clinique when I first heard of this. Who doesn't want long wispy eye framing lashes?
The mascara when I first saw it, was surprising. It's REALLY small.

This is for just the bottom lashes, so it makes sense to get those tiny hairs, but really... super small.
BE PREPARED FOR HUGE CLOSE UP'S OF MY EYES
Left and Right Eyes PRE Mascara on the lower lashes
On one eye I am going to apply the Clinique bottom lash mascara alone, and on the other eye, I will apply the Shiseido Mascara Base which I use everyday, and would use with this product.
Clinique states if you have very few/thin lower lashes, to hold the wand vertically first, coat lashes, then turn the wand horizontally to clean up clumps.
I tried this, the tip of the mascara had a lot of excess product, so it immediately clumped. I did not really like this method, and just applied it normally (horizontally)

( I was not very impressed to be honest) I have received the below effects with lengthening mascaras previously

This mascara is really good for getting into those tight spots which you just cannot reach with all the new fat wands out there. I also enjoyed using this on the corners of my top lashes, another tight spot.
I'm going to be honest, I had heard a lot of raves on this, and I understand my lashes are not ever going to look suuuper long and wisp,y but I was a bit let down.
Overall, I think this is nice to have for those corners on the top of my lashes, and I will use this tube, for my lower lashes, if I apply a brown liner on the bottom so give them some background, they won't look as sad.
The price is not terrible, it's $10, but the tube is very small and it really is a very isolated purpose. (.07 oz.)
This mascara is nice to have to just help with those corner's that you just cannot reach, but I really am on the fence if I think this is good or not, as it did not have a huge effect on it's own and it's also an additional step to my routine which I would happily do, if I had seen more prominent results. Due to the fact that the results are something I have found through Japanese lengthening mascara's still don't think I would repurchase this.
