Hi pretty people. It’s another Monday which means another mascara review, so let’s go ahead and get started shall weeeee?
Bourjois Pump up the Volume Mascara
Price: 3 out of 5 ($14.50)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 3 out of 5
What it claims: “A truly uplifting experience, rain or shine. This silicone rich formula pumps up your lashes in any weather, instantly volumizing and uplifting. While a combination of microbeads with carnuba wax act as a natural raincoat for your lashes. The double-fiber brush thickens right to the tips for fuller, darker looking lashes that never get left out in the rain.”
The truth: It is waterproof. I took a shower with this mascara on and it didn’t run whatsoever. But as far as the volume…..eh.
What I loved about it: This is my first Bourjois Cosmetics purchase (reader requested) and although I’m not terribly impressed with the mascara, my eyes were buggin’ out from the other beautiful products they have. The next time you are in a Sephora or Ulta, you MUST check them out. But onto the mascara….wellll, I love the whole “natural raincoat” explanation. It is in fact, true. You can literally go swimming with this mascara and it will hold up. So that’s great! I also love love looooove the skinny brush.
What I didn’t like: I didn’t receive THAT much volume from this mascara. I mean, it was just ohhhhkaaaay. What really gave me MORE volume was the primer that I used. I tried using it with other mascaras and it was still just, “eh”. I imagine this mascara would be great for those who already have long and full lashes and just want to take them a step up.
Would I purchase again?: No, I don’t think so. But I’m open to trying more mascaras from Bourjois Cosmetics considering they have a lot to choose from.
What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it? Does anyone know how to say “bourjois” correctly. If you’ve sent me an email requesting a particular mascara to review, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a looong list. Keep sendin’ me reviews at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com
