The $10 Bottom Lash Mascara Your Makeup Bag Needs

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked LA editor Natalie Alcala.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, $10.

Whether you're a beauty minimalist or maximalist, mascara is a makeup bag must. It's the beauty equivalent of a black blazer: you can dress it down (one coat) or up (a ton of coats). And while most folks have identified their tried-and-true tool for top lashes (Racked NY's Nicola Fumo knows what's up), not many have a handle on their bottom lash situation and settle on using a regular-sized mascara's thick, smear-inducing wand for the job. They just haven't met Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara yet.

Reasonably priced for a department store product, this $10 bestseller features an adorable mini brush that's engineered to meticulously dress your tiniest lashes without forcing you into having a Kardashian moment. (Unless that's what you're going for, in which you can apply a dozen coats to get there.) In addition to being super-easy to remove (warm water does the trick), the barrel is decorated with a pretty floral motif, because pint-sized things should always look cute.
