Hi everyone! not long left until Christmas!
I have finally broken up from college which means that I can blog a lot more which I am happy about because I have been trying out quite a few new things and I have a stack of them to review but haven’t had the time. So the first thing that I have is the new Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Mascara which I have been testing for the past week or so.
It contains natural wax and protecting and fortifying black pearl extract and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
This mascara has gotten quite a lot of rave reviews since if has been released and they also have a waterproof version too if you prefer waterproof mascaras.
Bourjois states that this mascara gives 10x more volume and it definitely makes my eyelashes much more fuller at the roots when i first apply it. They also say that it gives 16 hours of hold, I particularly don’t agree with this because I did notice that my eyelashes dropped towards the end of the day which happens quite a lot on me anyway. The formula of this mascara is not clumpy or wet its the nice in between consistency and even after the 3rd layer of mascara it still doesn’t clump up the lashes.
As you can see the brush is huge and it does take some time getting used to if you don’t normally use mascaras with big brushes. I did manage to get some mascara on my eyelid because the brush was so big but it does separate the lashes quite well and gives them a lot of volume. I didn’t notice very much lengthening in this mascara when I applied the first layer but that is because it only claims to volumize. This mascara gives the lashes a more natural look than some mascaras out there. It wasn’t until the 4th layer that I noticed my lashes looking more dramatic.
I have seen photos on other blogs of this mascara and it looks amazing on other peoples lashes and even lengthens them as well as volumizing, so I don’t know why this isn’t working that well on me but it does make my lashes very black and full. I don’t use this mascara when I’m in a rush as it took me ages to layer it up to achieve this look.
Availability: Boots, Superdrug, Tesco
Does anyone else have this mascara and did you get on with it better than i did? I don’t think I would repurchase this because when I saw the price of it I was quite shocked as it is pricey for a drugstore mascara. Ive tried better ones that are much cheaper. If you like volumising mascaras then I would recommend this one because you can achieve lots of fullness without the clumpiness!
