So there’s been a whole backlog of mascaras that have been sitting in my drawer, many of which I still have not tested. At last, I am finally getting around to them! Awhile back, during a Toronto Beauty Blogger event, the lovely Farah (from Faces by Farah) had surprised us each with a Bourjois Volumizer Mascara. I started using it a couple weeks ago and can I tell you? I’m in love…
The genius behind this product? There are 2 mascara brushes within the same tube! Here’s the reason for the 2 brushes:
Step 1: This first formula produces feathery soft lashes, giving it just a little more length and definition. For a natural day time look, this mascara is perfect. There’s no clumpiness at all and Bourjois claims that it will increase the volume of your lashes by 2x.
Step 2: Because I know my lashes are volume deficient, I almost always layer step 2 on top. This is the step that really amps up the volume (reminds me a little of Benefit’s BadGal Lash formula). Combining these 2 steps will give you an increase in voiume by about 11x!
More reasons to love? The formulas contain ceramides and pro-Vitamin B5 to help strengthen lash follicles. It may be my imagination, but after a couple weeks of using, I’ve noticed that my natural lashes (sans mascara) appear a bit longer and thicker. Whatever the case may be, I’m happy to accept all the help I can get!
