Bourjois Mascara Review

6 April 2014

Bourjois is kind of a hit and miss thing for me. Some of their things I love, like the Healthy Mix Foundation, but some I hate. I have tried two of their mascaras before; one I absolutely loved and another I absolutely hate. I've been meaning to review them for ages for you and have finally gotten on to it, so here we go!



Probably my all time favourite mascara is this one, the Bourjois Liner Effect mascara, waterproof, in black. It has a thin wand and I don't know how to explain but the bristles are really spikey and densely packed. This doesn't sound like an advantage, but it ensures that the mascara really separates your eyelashes and covers each one fully, so you have no worries of clumps/all your eyelashes joining together. It really helps my eyes to stand out and make my eyelashes seem an kind of long, I have super short stubby eyelashes so this is a really good thing. I would say though it probably works best on people with short eyelashes and a lot of volume because it really spreads them out and make each eyelash seem noticeable and long. I'm not sure how well it would work with people who don't have much volume in the eyelashes since I personally feel like the whole reason the wand works so well is because it helps to make each individual eyelash appear long and fans them out. It costs £9.99 which is rather expensive..but it makes my eyelashes look so nice and I recommend anyone with short stubby eyelashes like me to try it too.
It takes a bit longer to put on than some mascaras, because its such a small brush, but personally I think that tiny bit of extra time is worth it. It is a little tough to get off, since its waterproof but it's not too bad.


The other mascara I really don't like. It is Bourjois Volume Clubbing Waterproof Mascara. It is a really thick consistency which on me, just creates loads of clumps and makes my eyelashes feel all horrible and sticky. It does help to give eyelashes a little bit of volume, but the wand is quite fat and unlike the one before which kind of combs your eyelashes, this one doesn't and isn't that great when applying. I think also that you need to use it quickly because it got very clumpy after I had it for a while. This one is £7.99, and I definitely wont be repurchasing. It's too thick and gloopy and the wand is pretty darn bad in my opinion, however I have also seen loads of people who love this mascara, so I guess it really depends on the person.

I was going to take pictures of the mascara on, but I couldn't get a good shot! Also sorry one of these pictures is a different colour to all the rest, it was an emergency snap!
What are some of your guys favourite mascara? I feel like I should be more experimental, but I am super happy with the Falsies by Maybelline at the moment :)

  1. I've been wanting to try the Bourjois cosmetics for so long, but I can't get out of my comfy zone yet and let go of my RL ones to try something new. However, an extra mascara won't hurt ;)
    By the way, do you have Instagram? x
