At first I really didn't like this. It was so gloopy and just got all over my skin. I felt like I was wasting so much product having to blot the tip of the brush off. But then after a couple weeks it dried up a little bit and started applying way better. It's the perfect length for lower lashes, and builds easily. I think the thing that made me keep using this even through the goopy stages is that it does not budge! I have super oily skin and usually my mascaras always give me raccoon eyes. But I noticed every time I was wearing this on my lower lashes that I never had to wipe under my eyes. It seems to be only removed by water, so its very easily taken off in the shower with no make up remover. I liked it so much I've bought another one.

Underwhelming. It does its job as a mascara, but I can use other mascaras that I already used for the upper lashes for this. It does not smudge, but it also does not stun. I find it unnecessary to purchase solely for this. It takes much longer to apply due to the dry texture of the formula and I am not going to repurchase as I am already nearing the end of this lackluster tube.

Black/brown is too light....had to throw it out after a few uses. Black is better. The little brush will be exasperating to those who have mastered how to apply to bottom lashes using a normal full-sized brushes. The formula becomes flaky in the tube much faster than a couple of Clinique`s other formulas and therefore goes on as little dotty flakes after just a few uses, instead of going on smoothly.

Know how to read Clinique`s manufacturing date codes so that you don`t get a tube made too long ago. Despite Clnique claiming that unopened makeup keeps its consistency for 3 years, and thus they will sell you makeup made up to 3 years ago, know how to read the code and how to therefore how to insist on getting a tube that is less than a year old. I got two tubes -- one was over a year old and the formula was already dried and flaky compared to the newer tube.

The small brush works well for my bottom lashes. I found out that you only need to use 1 coat, any more will smudge.

I'm actually looking to repurchase this soon. I bought this product a maybe a year or two ago and fell in love with it and then for some reason stopped using it. I'm now scraping what's left out of my tube because it makes my bottom lashes look amazing which I didn't know was so important. A lot of mascaras don't make my lower lashes look like anything special but with this you can build it up to look a little spidery if you want to (sometimes I'm into that). I love to give myself twiggy-esque bottom lashes and this is perfect for that. This is a holy grail for me for sure. Doesn't smudge and lasts all day, seperates and lengthens like nothing else.

$10 USD. TIP: wipe off really well to avoid smudging and clumping. On my Asian, non-existent bottom lashes, the tiny brush reaches every corner and picked out even invisible lashes I didn't know I had. The first time I put it on, I was stunned that I HAD bottom lashes! It also didn't smudge or create raccoon eyes at all (all of the mascaras I've ever used smudge, but this did not budge). I loved it so much I tried it on my upper lashes, but it didn't work out - it immediately took out any curl and looked horrible on the upper lashes. This is a must if you are Asian with no lower lashes to speak of.

For me this is an awesome product. I use to use the Telescopic explosion from Loreal and then just bought small applicators to use in my regular mascara but this is so much better. I have the black. The small wand makes it so much easier to reach all the lashes on my lower line. They are all different sizes and this can get them all.

At $10 I don't see this as any more expensive as my drug store brand. The formula is dry enough I'm not worried about my falsies either. YAY! Thank you Clinique!

Love this mascara. Small brush works wonders on bottom lashes. When you first open it the formula is really wet but after awhile when it dries out it's much better. Makes bottom lashes voluminous looking and lengthening. I highly recommend it!

Lovely product! Excellent performance for bottom lashes. The brush of the mascara is tiny and is perfect for working bottom lashes. It's also good for reaching the smallest lashes in the corner of the eye.
It's not a must have, but definitely a nice thing to have for those occasion when you have a bit of extra time and desire to look stunning.

When I first heard of this, I thought it was a gimmick. I received it as part of a gift with purchase and lo and behold, I actually like this stuff. I don't usually wear mascara on my bottom lashes because I find most smudge (even waterproof).

This product doesn't coat the lashes as well as most regular mascaras, but it does provide subtle, smudge-free, flake-free definition. I find it pricey for the size of the tube, but the since I use less product on my lower lashes than the upper, it lasts quite a long time.

If I have a little extra money to spend, I might buy it but it won't make it on to my "essentials" list.
