bourjois Volumizer mascaraThe only reason I purchased this mascara was because the SA at the counter totally tempted me with the design and packaging and how cool this mascara was that gave you both day time soft lashes and night time dramatic lashes.

bourjois Volumizer mascaraThis is Brush No 1 that claims to prepare your lashes for 3D Volume and Guaranteed Clump free.

This is brush no 2 that transforms to create spectacular 3 D Volume. oh! Please check the amount of mascara that this brush picks up.

What I like about Bourjois Volumizer Mascara:

  • It’s a very black mascara thatΒ  gives volume to your lashes.
  • I like brush no 1 a lot , especially for day when when I just want a little definition for my lashes,
  • Unlike Bourjois Elastic Mascara, it doesn’t sting my eyes.
  • It doesn’t feel heavy on lashes.
  • Since it is not a waterproof mascara,Β  it comes off easily with an oil based cleanser.
  • It manages to hold the curls all day long.

What I don’t like about Bourjois Volumizer Mascara

  • Brush no 2 picks up way to much product and it gets all clumpy on the lashes. Even after brushing the lashes with a clean mascara wand, the clumps just don’t go.
  • Both the brushes make your lashes look uneven. After applying mascara, your lashes don’t look natural and your lashes tend to go in all different directions.

After first coat with brush number 1, although lashes look natural but they are going in different directions.

And this is just one coat of mascara with Brush 2. All clumpy, thick and uneven. I applied the mascara after swiping the brush on the side of the mascara tube to get rid of the excess but that didn’t help much.

I won’t recommend this mascara to anyone. :(( Rather than trying to save some money on buying a mascara, I ended up wasting it.If there is anyway, I could still use it, please let me know.

Have you tried Bourjois Volumizer Mascara? Please rate in the box below.

These are two eyeshadows I picked form Bourjois – Bourjois Paris Baked Eyeshadow No 13 ( Rs 390), Bourjois Multi Shimmer Loose eyeshadow no 15 Bleu Glacier ( Rs 585)

Bourjois eyeshadows

You can use these baked eyeshadows both wet and dry. They come in variety of colours such as silver, copper, purple ,black. I am yet to use it but I totally fell for the shade.

Bourjois Single Eyeshadow

It has obvious but fine silver shimmer to it.


Bourjois Multi Shimmer Loose Eyeshadow #15 Bleu Glacier: I was looking for an icy blue pigment for a long time now but didn’t want to spend on MAC or Inglot so this caught my eye the other day.

The eyeshadow comes in a cute pot and there is a tiny brush that comes along with it. Although the pigment is not very fine but it’ll do the job. πŸ™‚



And I got this soooper cute Bourjois bag free free free. πŸ˜€ It’s so soft and fine. And there are cute ribbons and Eiffel Tower hung on the side. :))

  1. Oh….The mascara doesnt luk gud at all :sidefrown: ….i hav a different one..dnt knw the name…will chk as soon as i reacfh home….the blue pigment lukkks sooooooo coooooooolllll :toothygrin: …btw how much do their pigments and eyeshadows cost ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?????????

    1. Yeah it looks very bad. :(( You tell me which one you are using. πŸ˜€ :d Actually I wanted an icy blue pigment for a certain look so I didnt want to spend too much. This one looed nice. :))

      Eyeshadow bake – Rs 390, loose Rs 585.

    1. Just the day before I wanted to purchase that mascara I went to the bourjois counter and the SA tempted me totally. :(( 2 mascara for a price of one, bourjois big brand , cool packaging :headbang:

      1. did you try using this with another brush? maybe that can help salvage it? i know the brush is supposed to be the hero of this product, but i feel so bad when products don’t work for me and they have to go waste!

        1. Anks I separated my lashes with a clean estee lauder mascara wand and it didn’t help at all. :((

          Even after drying the clumps kinds stick at the end of my lashes. I would try using it with a separate brush altogether and I’ll let you know. Thanks for teh suggestion. :))

  2. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: talk abt cute BAG YAAR !!!!! its super !!!!!!!!!

    luv the eye shadows too !!! mascara is big no -no

  3. That mascara is disappointing…though the e/s look good…I can see something inside the bag..but I fear to ask what? πŸ˜€

  4. ggrrr what a bad bad msacara!!!! :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:

    gues what even i was eyeing the same shade of mascara yesterday at bourjois counter..!! but some how i dint end up taking it…but i like tht colour..!

  5. RATIIIII…send me that bag…I don’t mind taking it at all…you can send that mascara also..that i will throw away and keep the bag :toothygrin:

  6. MAC has a similar type of mascara known as Haute & Naughty Lash – it works very well. I bought it when the Nordstrom counter was having a Buy 2 – 1 Free deal where the third mascara was free.

    One way to salvage this product is to try to apply with a different brush – or alternately apply a bit of it (once it’s gotten a bit drier) to your eyebrows. I saw a lady on the train the other day apply mascara on her eyebrows as a brow enhancer and I thought “Why didn’t I think of that?” πŸ™‚ Doesn’t seem like a bad idea, right?

    1. Oh that’s an awesome idea firen. It can work as brow gel seriously because the formula in itself is quite thick and it would get drier only one month down the line. I am going to give it a try using a different brush but i feel bad since the brush is such an important part of the mascara and for this particular mascara, it is such a failure.

    2. I was about to comment about MAC having a similar type of mascara. Rati, its the same brush picking up different amounts of product each time. I guess the second opening is not well formed in this so too much product is coming out in the second part- I don’t know if changing the brush will help if its a problem with the opening but I hope it does, otherwise it’ll be such a waste!

  7. grey hair ratiiii ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) one can use it to cover grey hairsssssss…. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† u send it to me…i need it :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:

  8. OOOHHH !!!!

        chalo… chalta hai….

  11. I fully agree with you, Rati, what a clumpy mascara. I think your best mascara is your Estee Lauder one, from what I can see from your photees.

    anyway , will hunt for people in my family who want something from bourjois, i go to pune , buy bourjois for them with their money and keep the bag… :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil: :yelo:

      1. hehehehe… but i have some eyeliners from bourjois in mind..let see i might pick them up :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle: :struggle:

  16. i want tht bag .. bag .. only bag :woot: :woot: :yahoo: :yahoo: … for tht wht to do rati?? :joker: :joker: πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

  17. The eyeshadow is really pretty and I’d swatched it when I was at the Bourjois counter last time. I love the teal/blue shades Bourjois has in eyeshadows, not easily found in other comparable brands. The bag is super cute!
    Could you recommend a low/medium-end brand mascara Rati? I’m using Maybelline right now and its good but it clumps a bit.

    1. I used to like colorbar mascara,havent used it in a long time now so I cant say if the formulation is changed. But when I used to use it, it used to be good. πŸ™‚

  18. I had tried this once at the Borujois counter and it looked all clumped on my lashes but my lashes looked properly curled- SA dint recommend this to me since she told this will be good for those who have very sparse lashes..i like that SA, not at all pushy!!

        1. please do it shyna…cause I have got confirmation text, and please courier the foundation soon, since I wnt be available frm tuesday in town..and no one else cn pick it too… πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
