I recently completely finished up the Bourjois Volumizer mascara, and thought it was high time I gave it a full review.
The mascara is one of those 2 step types, with the first step to lengthen and separate and the second step to add volume. At first I was very sceptical about this system, assuming it was just a gimmick, and how wrong was I!
The first step really works at adding length pretty well. It keeps the lashes separate so they dnt clum together at all, which gives a lovely effect in itself, but is perfect to build volume upon to give fluttery lashes! On days when I wasnt doing much I would sometimes just use a quick coat of this step for easy pretty lashes.
The second step is what makes this mascara for me. It is obviously the same wand, only in the first step it gets pulled through the little tube to take off more product. This second step can look a little intimidating at first, especially when the mascara is new, as the brush is loaded with product. However, this works abslute wonders on top of your already long and separated lashes from the first step, and builds upon them nicely to give mega volume. I did find that this could sometimes clump my lashes together, but I fixed that by whipping out Step 1 and combing through the lashes when the brush has way less product on it, simples!
Heres a little "rabbit caught in the headlights" shot from an old FOTD where the only thing I have on my lashes is this mascara. So many people that night asked my what false lashes I was wearing, so this does give mega huge lashes!
Its dried up now and I dont even have it anymore, but I loved it so much I still wanted to use the pictures for a review. Once Ive used up the other mascaras I have I will definitely be going back to this one, its my absolute favourite!
The Volumizer mascara is sold at ny Bourjois stand at Boots or Superdrug, and retails for around £10, which I dont think is too bad considering how great it is.
Whats your favourite mascara?
