My Clinique mascara routine

High Impact Extreme Volume mascara*, 01 Extreme Black - £17
Bottom Lash mascara* - £11

I am always chopping and changing my mascara, and for my (makeup) sins I usually have about five on the go at once. Depending on the time and occasion, I always find myself reaching for a different one to suit my needs, whether I want to lengthen, add volume or keep it natural. My changeable lash routine however has hit a bit of a plateau recently as I have been picking up and pairing the same two mascaras for the past week or so. Quite a feat for me. And they both come from the same brand. Clinique's new High Impact Extreme Volume mascara has moulded bristles which comb through the lashes, separating, stretching and lifting the lashes whilst giving them a little bit of volume and an intense colour. This mascara works best when layered a couple of times to give an almost fake-lash effect and perfectly fanned out lashes. I usually favour the soft bristles which really grab and define your lashes but I am surprisingly impressed with this mascara and it does exactly what it says on the tin tube.

For my bottom lashes I must confess that they usually get the same treatment as my top lashes, just with a slightly more delicate touch. However this Bottom Lash mascara from Clinique is such a nifty little product, I have been addicted to using it ever since I first tested it out. It boasts one of the smallest micro-mini brushes on the market, ideal for enhancing those little, hard to reach lashes, with a formula that resists smears and smudges. Part of me loves it purely because it is just so mini and cute, but the fact that it actually does a great job makes me love it even more. Yes it isn't a completely necessary product,  but if you like to enhance your bottom lashes and find normal mascara a little too clumsy, then this little beauty is wonderful for a clinical, clean application.

What's your current lash loves?

Beautiful lashes Milly, I'm so tempted to try the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. Mascara always comes off my bottom lashes so this is so tempting.

Love that your lashes look like they have mascara on without being clumpy or stuck together. Think that might be the perfect combo of mascara, definitely going to try out the Clinique bottom lash one.

I have yet to try out the Clinique bottom lash mascara!
I've heard such good things about it.
I really love YSL shocking - a pricy pick but its well worth it of you feel the need to splurge!
I also love maybelline falsies (I can't remember the exact name but its in a pink tube with lace design on the lid!) for everyday. A great affordable, drug store alternative. Xx

Your Lashes look beautiful in the photos! I haven't tried Clinique mascaras, but I'm tempted by the bottom lash mascara; I usually skip the bottom lashes since I'd hate to make a smudge when I'm in a rush.

I'm loving 'They're real' atm! I just bought my mum the bottom lash for Christmas though!

I love the way your lashes look. I def need to purchase this mascara and do a product review on it.

Louise said...

Wow your lashes look great! I've tried the original High Impact mascara but found it a bit too wet and it didn't hold a curl well on me. How do you think the extreme version compares to the original?

I really wanna try the bottom lash mascara! I find the normal sized brush applicators a pain to use on the bottom lashes!

Where did you get that necklace from?

Leanne Marie said...

I really want the bottom lash mascara, I just cant justify it at the moment though as I have to save for my wedding! It is acceptable to add makeup items to your wedding gift list? ;-)

I love a rubber wand as I find the teeth separate lashes really effectively. I'm also very tempted by the Bottom Lash, I do get tired of black smears under my eyes!

Your lashes look amazing! I've always been curious to try the bottom mascara. I might have to try it for my corner lashes.

Cant believe I've only now stumbled across Pearls & Poodles! We have identical makeup & style tastes.. you could be my new girl crush, Milly!
Need this Clinique mascara in my life, I've been toying with the idea of cheating on my beloved Maxfactor old-faithful for a little while..

Milly said...

@leanne Marie - haha totally acceptable! :)

@sia - it is from Krystal London via Secret Sales

@Louise - I haven't tried the original but this one is still quite wet but dries quite glossy and the curl does hold.
