bourjois twist up the volume mascara

Today the newest mascara to from Bourjois landed through my door, it's quite a while off from being available to buy in stores yet but I know how you all love an exclusive sneaky peek at products before they've launched. I admit that I'm a bit of a mascara snob and as a rule I favour my Yves Saint Laurent False Lash Effect over anything else, but this genius invention from Bourjois has totally changed my viewpoint. It's designed to be a 'two in one' type of mascara, you apply your first coat using the position 1 setting which lengthens and separates, and then move on to position 2 by twisting the device at the end, which then thickens and volumises the lashes. I'm the kind of girl who likes full on dramatic lashes every single day but this kind of design means you can have a more natural look for the day and also bulk up your lashes for an evening look, I usually have a few different mascaras lying around depending on how I want my lashes to look but would happily swap those in for this multi-use version. It's fair to say that my lashes are looking the thickest and darkest they ever have, and not only that but they are left feeling light and not at all weighed down once the mascara has dried. I've been so impressed by this mascara thus far, if it manages to last well in the tube for a couple of months then I'd certainly recommend it to anyone who favours a volumising mascara. You will have to hold on until October for it to become available, but trust me it will be worth the wait!



  1. I love the look of this, i usually opt for a more dramatic lash look everyday too. I really want to try some more highstreet mascaras, forever buying expensive ones that aren't that great! x

  2. Like you I love YSL mascara so I will have to try this, even if I have to wait! This really gives your lashes loads of volume. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. Oh this sounds great, can't wait to try!

  4. Most mascaras tend to do one thing or the other, so it's great that this one seems to do both :) I'm on a constant mascara-finding mission, so this will definitely be bought come October!

  5. Tried this while I was in Vancouver and fell in love! It will be pretty hard to find in the States (Los Angeles), but hopefully can stock up on my next trip to Canada or London!
