Max Factor False Lash Effect & Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Hello lovelies,

I have struggled for a long while now with trying to find a mascara that could transform my rubbish short, straight lashes into something with a little substance. At the moment I'm using two products (I know, it seems a little excessive but don't give up on me yet!) on a daily basis and they are doing the trick nicely for me, adding length and thickness to both my top and bottom lashes.

The first is Max Factor False Lash Effect which is available from Boots or Superdrug for £10.99. This mascara has been raved about a fair bit and does offer great pay off - the wand is pretty large though, so if you're one for more delicate application this may not be for you. The second is Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara also available from Boots (and other Clinique stockists) for £10. I've been hunting for this for absolutely ages as it has forever been out of stock - I think this is mainly due to the affordability and uniqueness of this mascara. It really is like nothing else I've come across, the brush is absolutely teeeny and allows you to reach the lashes you may not have been able to before, or if you're anything like me ended up with a huge mess if you tried! Anyway, I know the writing part of this is dull so here are some sparkly pictures for you :)

Hope you enjoyed this one, please feel free to comment and I'll reply back!


  1. Wow I love that eyeliner look. Would make a fab EOTD post :)

    The mascaras look pretty impressive too. I always use a normal one on my lower lashes then end up having to get the cotton buds out! Haha x

  2. Thanks so much :) I hadn't thought of doing EOTD but I'll definitely be pondering that now hehe. I always used a normal one on my lower lashes but I am pretty clumsy and my lashes are so tiny, this Clinique one is perfect! xx

  3. I am loving the eyeliner, looks fab!:D
