Splurge vs Steal of the Day

With the emphasis on the lower lash line in fashion as of late

I thought I would do a splurge vs steal of lower lash line mascara!

Givenchy's PhenomenEyes Mascara, $30

The innovative brush promises the ultimate definition for eyelashes, especially the lower lash line.

Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara

Also a tiny applicator to really grab those small lashes and define them
$10 at Macy's Clinique Counters

I didn't want to leave out Givenchy's competition in the brush design, L'Oreal's Telescopic Explosion Mascara, $7 at drug stores

I've tried the Givenchy product and the application was so easy and the product was amazing, but the $30 price tag is just unreasonable in my opinion!  (if it was worth it, I would be fine with the price)

The L'Oreal product was a HUGE disappointment, the wand was too long and the brush head was too clumpy, it really needed those tiny fibers to be longer to grab the lashes better, like the Givenchy

The nice option with the Clinique, is that $10 is a reasonable amount to pay for a 3-month life span product, like mascara.  The brush was not as nice as the Givenchy product, but it did coat the lashes, and its fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic, a nice bonus for the sensitive eye area!

The winner is the Clinique "Bottom Lash" Mascara!
Its like a set of falsies on your lower lash line!
