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.
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?
