Bourjois Elastic Mascara

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Ours was very quiet but nice all the same :) 

I got this mascara in a free gift set when I was buying a few other Bourjois products. I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to mascara so I'd initially expected this to be rubbish. However, I've been pleasantly surprised!

Product: Bourjois Elastic Mascara in Black

Price: £9.49 from Boots or Superdrug


"A mascara that truly lengthens lashes giving them 130% more visible length!"

What's Good About It?
I really like the effect this mascara gives. I tried this on one eye with my HG BeneFit They're Real on the other and my boyfriend couldn't tell the difference. I thought the They're real gave a touch more volume but aside from that they do give a similar look. The wand is pretty small, which I like. 

What's Disappointing?
I find it really difficult to find a mascara which doesn't smudge on me and this one does smudge a little. It's not as bad as most mascaras I've tried though so it will probably work just fine on someone who doesn't struggle with smudging. The packaging feels a little cheap considering the price. 

Overall Score & Comment: 7/10 - If this didn't smudge on me, it would be a firm favourite of mine. I think it's a bit overpriced but aside from that, I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a nice lengthening mascara.

Have you tried any good mascaras recently?

  1. My most recent try was the Noveau Lashes one that came in my December Glossybox, it's good :)
    That and the Soap and Glory mascara, it's a good one but very very hard to get on with due to clogging and the huge brush!
    Hope you had a lovely Christmas,

  2. Woah - speediest response ever! :) I can't deal with massive brushes either - I'm going to try the Revlon Grow Luscious soon and I'm dreading it because everyone says it's a pain due to the big brush. I hope you had a lovely Christmas too :) xx
