Fanned out, luscious lashes have been adorned in the beauty world since Twiggy exploded onto the scene in the sixties. “A doll lash, but not a dolly look” says Mary Katrantzou for her bold makeup approach at F/W15 – a trickling trend resurrected. Pursuing the perfect mascara is undoubtedley the holy grail of make-up. Until recently, Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils Volume Effet Mascara was my handbag’s soulmate. There was something about that sweet-honey Yves smell of expensive formula that I somehow couldn’t stay away from (oh, the lure of designer product…)
But if you can pry yourself away from the enticement of couture mascara, head down to your local drugstore and pick up Bourjois Volumizer Mascara, £10.99.
The product promises you a two-wand action, the first for everyday lash definition with up to two times more volume, and the second wand for dramatic lashes with up to eleven times more volume for ultimate show-stopping lashes. In reality, it is only one wand that filters through to either give you less mascara on the wand or more with a different kind of filter. The thinner wand lifts your lashes as well as creating volume. Wait a few seconds before layering a build-up with the second wand! To build up lush lashes, it’s great to choose either/both.
This product is a bargain and really promises what it says on the tin – plumps up your eyelashes, making them appear thicker and fuller, and yes, longer.
A definite 10/10 recommend.
