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.
