95% of Mascaras We Apply to Our Bottom Lashes Smudge—Here Are the 5% That Don't

Since starting my journey as Who What Wear's assistant beauty editor, I've come across thousands of mascaras that promise long, luscious lashes, but when I pause to think about it, there have been few products on the market that deliver the same look for the small, usually sparse lashes on the bottom lash line. I've always loved finding new and improved ways to show off my almond-shaped eyes, but keeping track of which mascaras will give me the look I want is a challenge.

That's why I've taken the time to sift through my ever-growing collection of drugstore and high-end mascaras to ID the ones that give my lower lashes the attention they deserve but don't always get from the products I use on my upper lashes. Wondering which ones made the list? Keep scrolling for a few of my favorites, accompanied by glowing customer reviews and the information you need to make your shopping experience quick and easy.
