What makes the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara so special is the wand it comes with. It is miniature! I would say the bristled part of the wand is about a third of the length of that of a regular-sized mascara. This makes it the perfect size to apply the product on the lower lashes, but also on the inner and outer corner of the upper lashes, which for me are shorter and hard to coat with the average-sized mascara wand.
The Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara comes in a .07 OZ or 2 mL tube, compared to the average .30 OZ or 9 mL regular-sized mascara. However, since the wand is so small, you won't be going through the product any faster, so it will still last you the same amount of time as your big-size mascara. I honestly believe that this product is worth the hype, since the wand picks up just the right amount of product, and makes separating the lashes so easy thanks to the wand. The formulation is also really nice, it isn't too wet nor too dry, making the application mess-free. It is long-wearing, and even after a long day of having it on, this mascara never pulls the raccoon eyes effect on me. I got mine in the shade black, but it also comes in black-brown for those of you who prefer a softer look.
I feel like I am slowly mastering my mascara application routine, and I owe big thanks to this little helper! You can purchase the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara at Clinique counters in department stores, at Sephora, or like me, at the airport in the duty-free boutique! At $10 US/$12 CAN, I think it's a pretty good deal considering the amazing effect it gives my lashes.
