    Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara for the win! I’ve been wearing it now for about 2 weeks and I love it. There is no smudging at all and it comes off super easy.

  2. Olivia

    The clinique bottom lash mascara! It’s a great idea and it actually works for me..

    Off topic: Will you be reviewing + swatching things from quite cute? I know you are probably really busy but I am just so anxious!!! lol

  3. Guerlain Le 2 mascara because it has the small brush at one end, and the larger one at the other end.

  4. I would normally say the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, but I like to use Maybelline Falsies for a doll look.

      I’ve been wanting to try the clinique bottom lash! I love my maybelline falsies but I actually have not tried it on the lower lashes. I’ll have to give that a shot! Of the stuff I have I actually like my maybelline great lash for the bottom, not for the top! But the small wand does the trick. Do you find that you can get the falsies to work even with that big curved wand?

  5. Kathy

    For me L’Oreal Voluminous waterproof works really well on my bottom lashes. That stuff doesn’t flake on me at all!

  6. Malu

    the besto one is Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes because it curls perfectly, opens and lifts your lashes.

  7. Macaddict

    MACeither zoom lash and/or Studio FIx .
    Don’t care for Guerlain Le 2 mascaras; the product dries way too fast and it also clumps and doeesn’t define well.

  8. I actually like the Rimmel Sexy Curves for my bottomlashes (the purple one, there’s also a red one that I haven’t tried yet.)
    It makes the crazy long and does a pretty goo job separating them as well.

  9. Hourglass Superficial Lash Mascara – I don’t know if it’s just because I have the mini sampler size, but the brush on this one is just perfect. Conversely t sucks as a top lash mascara (which is what it was meant for I think)

  10. Bottega Verde 3-1! :)

  11. Clara

    Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara–small brush & it does what it says for me.

  12. Marisa

    Covergirl LashBlast Length (yellow tube). I don’t like it for my upper lashes but it is perfect for the lower lashes. Gives very natural definition to them without flaking or clumping!

    • I agree! That is what I always use, especially because my bottom lashes curve down very close to my skin and it is the only brush I’ve found that doesn’t get all over the place!

    • jeannine

      Another vote for Cover Girl Lash Blast Length. I use Brown on the lower lashes even if I wear Black for my upper lashes. Sounds wierd, but my lashes are very pale and it works for me.

  13. YALENA

    NYX doll eye mascara

  14. Renee

    I don’t think in terms of “bottom lash mascara” and “upper lash mascara.” Hmmm… Maybe it’s because my bottom lashes are freakishly long and thick for bottom lashes! Ever one of my favorites work fine: Urband Decay Supercurl Curling, Diorshow Blackout, Clinique High Impact…

    • khiema

      I think most people use a different mascara for the bottom to prevent smudging and not because of the length of their bottom lashes

  15. Lori

    Maybelline Full N Soft Waterproof!

  16. I love Mac Zoom and Falsies by far for me its works the best. I think it differs with people.

  17. Jennifer

    I love MUFE Smoky Lash for my lower lashes (it’s terrible on my upper lashes though!)

  18. stine

    fiberwig tiny sniper is really good. it has a bend spoolie that makes it easy to get every lash without smudging mascara on the skin. and the fibers does make the lashes look pretty but not to long

  19. MJ

    Clinique Bottom Lash without a doubt. It stays in place and applies beautifully.

  20. Rosanna

    Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara! It lengthens them beautifully and it does not smudge!

  21. Deb

    I never wear mascara on my bottom lashes, but I would probably use something like Blinc so I could be sure it wouldn’t smudge!

  22. Annia

    For me its Blinc Kissme all the way. It doesn’t smudge when your eyes get wet :) What else can you ask for in a good lower lash mascara?

  23. Diana

    Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Waterproof. I have pretty oily lids and undereye areas, so I usually have migration problems…ugh! The brush is perfectly curved to coat the lower lashes and the waterproof formula doesn’t flake or smudge. It’s also easy to remove with makeup remover wipes.

  24. Ashley

    Whichever I’d use on the top lashes? Don’t understand the point in having a mascara just for lower lashes other than it being a smaller brush. But I’ve no real problem with normal wands for lower lashes.

  25. Veronica Verdu

    love MUFE Smoky Lash

  26. Alice

    Clinique Long Pretty Lashes – yesyesyes

  27. perri

    CLINIQUE BOTTOM LASH MASCARA!! It is only $10 and it is amazing– great tiny brush that is perfect for those hard to reach little lower lashes.

  28. Maybelline Lash Discovery is AMAZING for the lower lashes.. It has a super tiny brush that works so perfectly to get every single lash!

  29. Marie

    Sample size mascaras work GREAT, especially Lancome’s Definicils!! The downsized wand gives you great control and, to boot, they’re free with purchase! :)

  30. Clinique bottom lash but I also like Benefit Bad Gal lash in brown

  31. Ruby

    So far I’ve been using (Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara) and it doesn’t disappoint for both upper and lower lashes

  32. Melissa

    CoverGirl LashBlast Length gives a perfectly separated natural look for lower lashes

  33. Maybelline Lash Discovery, waterproof! The very black one is super super black, the brush is very small which helps not to get it all over the place which I tend to do when coating lower lashes, it’s great at separating and I use the waterproof version for extra strength against smudging.

  34. Sarah N.

    Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara here too! The wand just makes it all! Wish it came in a waterproof formula but haven’t had any trouble with smudging (waterproof just makes me feel better about it if it starts raining or something)!

  35. Sara

    I love Lancome’s Hyponose on my bottom lashes!!!:)

  36. Stila forever your curl mascara has a tiny brush that coats all of your smallest baby lashes and the long wand helps prevent you from making mistakes.
