Review: Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara

Hello lovelies!

Today I’m going to be reviewing the Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara by Bourjois Paris.

I first got this mascara about 10 months ago for free through a promotion in Priceline, and purchased it again about 4 months ago. Overall, I’ve been quite happy using it as my everyday mascara.

Pros
Does not clump or flake
Despite the fact it is not waterproof, I have not found this mascara at all clumpy and it does not usually flake even if worn all day. Definitely a plus in my book!

Holds curl from eyelash curlers well
If you curl your lashes prior to applying the mascara (I use the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler), the mascara will hold the curl well and generally apply better. There is a pretty big but coming up in the cons section though!

Darkens and defines lashes
Like any decent mascara should, the wand on this mascara darkens and separates the lashes and allows you to build up your application for your desired look.

Adds volume appropriate for everyday use
Like the name claims, this mascara does add volume to your lashes. However, while it is great for everyday use, it may not be able to build up the type of volume some would desire on a night out.

Cons
Does not curl by itself
Something a little disappointing about this mascara is that, although the packaging claims that it will curl your lashes, on it’s own it really doesn’t. The mascara isn’t all that different from their Volume Glamour mascara, though it does hold a curl well on pre-curled lashes.

Not waterproof
This is not a major thing for me. The mascara does not claim to be waterproof either. But it would be nice to have the option.

Expensive for what it is
This mascara cost AU$20 in Priceline, which is a little steep. I do like the mascara and I appreciate that you get what you pay for, but I would appreciate it if they lowered the price tag a little.

Overall, this is a pretty decent mascara. Whether I would purchase this again, I’m not sure as I will be in the UK next time I need mascara and might try something new, but I certainly recommend this if you want a dependable everyday mascara.

That’s all for today guys. Speak to you on the weekend!
