Crikey, I would have brought this earlier if I had realised what a fantastic impact on the old lashes this has.
This has a bit of technology intergrated with it!
STEP ONE: To coat your UPPER lashes you push a button on the wand you hold and it will or should rotate anti-clockwise when you push it to the left.
STEP TWO: To coat your LOWER lashes you once again move the button right and it will rotate clockwise.
You need a steady hand for this, it doesn't go super fast but there is a lt of mascara on the wand, as they aim for one coat to be the only coat you need and their right. This is an intense rich black that really shines and the rotation actually seperates the lashes very well.
It best, as recommended, to use eye shadow first then apply your mascara, for those who tend to do it the other, mascara first etc.
On first apearance it is very tempting to put another coat on but take the advice on the packaging and wait 330 seconds or more then you will see the impact. You can feel the lash lifting as it dries which is very quick.
Within this product there are:
This will conditioning your lashes as they work throughout the day. I don't really know if it did as the lashes seemed the same, but I did notice that the mascara does come off very well, it almost glides off.
This is not as waterproof either as claimed, I have a right old laughing fit whilst wearing this and it smudged, doh! But it didn't sting the eyes when it did run, there is always a positive.
Bourjois, the Company
Bourjois began in 1863 in the theatre district in Paris, France. The first company creator was Joseph-Albert Ponsin. Alexandre-Napoleon Bourjois was entrusted his entire activity by Joseph-Albert Ponsin in 1868. Through this development the company blossomed and became an international brand.
Bourjois Fast & Perfect Mascara comes in a black tube and has a chequered silver and black design at the top and bottom. Most of the writing is in silver but a little is in red. The top of the tube is larger in size than most mascaras, this is to hold the rotating mechanism. On the lid is also the switch to turn the rotating mechanism clockwise, anti-clockwise or off.
Like most females I am a lover of all things makeup and love giving new products a try, so when this first came out I was very curious. I had seen some makeup artists on YouTube using it and they had nothing but good things to say about it. Therefore when I went to get a new mascara this is one of the first ones I picked up. It only comes in one shade which is 51 Starting Black.
When I first got it home I had to have a good look at the rotating of the mascara brush. Once switch on I noticed it wasn't too noisy, although I don't think this really matters as you only have it on for a short while. When I next did my makeup I gave it a go. I really like the packaging of the mascara, the large handle is great. I think it will certainly help people who find mascara wands with a smaller handle difficult to use. It is recommended to use it for thirty seconds. When I first put it on I found the rotating a little strange but the more I used the more I got used to it. Also figuring out which way you want the brush to rotate when applying. The first few times I applied it got a little smudged but a little practice and all is well. The effect of the mascara was fantastic for my day time look. I would say that it isn't to dramatic, it just gave my lashes some extra volume. I t didn't add any length so if you are looking for this effect I wouldn't recommend this. The colour lasted well and only smudged a little when it rained. I found it very easy to take off with my usual eye makeup remover.
Overall I really like this mascara; it is one of my favourites and is always in my daily makeup bag. It is well worth the money, especially when you can get it on special offer. A total recommendation by me.
