  • "This is my absolute favorite mascara for both the bottom and the top lashes. This mascara keeps the lashes very long, and combined with another mascara it gives the perfect lashes. I like to begin with this mascara, because it gives me a lot of length, and after that I use another mascara to give me a bit of volume" in 9 reviews
  • "I love this mascara for my lower lashes. the price isn't too bad and the mascara itself lasts a long time without getting dry and chunky. it has a slightly chemical scent but not anything i would worry about but it gives my lower lashes great length without clumping them together. the brush is the perfect size to get into the corners" in 6 reviews

I tried this because of Patrick Starr and Jaclyn Hill use this one their lower lashes. I have long lower lashes; I don't really need to add length or volume I just like to define those lashes if I chose to. I don't like to show them off as sometimes they look longer than my top lashes! Its the one thing in my makeup bag that I have used since 2003. I do love the color of the tube! Lol. I repurchase at least 2x a year. I usually just buy online, but if I could find it in store for under the $20 that would be awesome!

My new favorite mascara! Heard about from Jaclyn Hill. Love for my upper and lower lashes. Makes them so much longer than they normally are. I have brown eyes and this makes them pop! I will definitely repurchase even with 10 mascaras on hand!

If your a look for the perfect masacar for definition this is the one for you! The brush is extremely thin so you are able to get into to those hard to reach lashes. Its the perfect mascara to use on your bottom lashes! I actually specifically use this mascara on my bottom lashes. You can see a huge difference.

MAC really got it right with this one! The thin wand makes it ideal for lower lashes, which is what I personally use this for. It gives my lower lashes a beautiful boost in length and doesn’t flake throughout the day. I recommend this to everyone!

I have to use two different mascaras, one for my top & one for my lower lashes. I use this mascara for my lower lashes and it is the best! It makes my lower lashes super long and separated. Since the wand is so skinny it really grabs & coats every lash. Since my lower lashes are on the longer side & I have oily skin when I use any other mascara it transfers little dots onto my skin. But with this mascara it doesn’t do that! Also, since i only use this for my lower lashes it lasts way longer so I don’t mind spending the money on it.

I love the size and shape of the wand. It’s thin and straight with no weird curves. I like these better because it’s easier to get under the top lashes without touching the bottom. The short bristles pick up enough product to coat and separate each lash without picking up excess and creating clumps. This makes my lashes look naturally long and full. It’s such a shame that this isn’t waterproof.

This is my ALL TIME FAVORITE mascara I’ve ever had. My lower lashes touch my under eye and smudge super easily and this is the only mascara that hasn’t smudged / comes off without leaving me with raccoon eyes. I just use the Micellar water to get it off and it’s AMAZING. It lasts me forever because I only do my lower lashes bc I have lash extensions. The wand is so thin and easy to keep the lashes from clumping. It’s only $18 which I think is fair 👏🏼

I bought this mascara after getting my makeup done at the MAC counter a few months ago. I love that the brush is little and you can reach all of your lashes and the mascara doesn’t clump but keeps your lashes looking smooth. However I wish that it was waterproof and that it provided more overall fullness. It won’t be a repeat purchase for me.

I love how tiny this wand is. It really is perfect for the lower lashes. The ONLY reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because it WILL smudge after a couple hours. Not nearly as bad as most mascaras, but still does a little bit. I do really enjoy this mascara though, and plan on repurchasing when mine is done.
