I probably should start this review by expressing my deep love for Bourjois Paris mascara. Prior to becoming a total addict and junkie to Japanese Brand Mascaras I was a complete Bourjois Paris fan girl when it came to mascara!
Bourjois Paris makes some sincerely great mascaras and I have quite a few in my makeup arsenal that I absolutely adore using daily!
I picked up a Bourjois Paris Volume Clubbing Mascara a week or so ago when doing a Sephora order and I should have seen the writing on the wall with this one. I should have reminded myself that lately Bourjois Paris has fallen off the awesome mascara bandwagon. Example: Yes To Volume, No To Clumps how about they reverse the title and say YES To Clumps and No Volume At all!
I’m a huge fan of Bourjois Paris Maxi Frange and I was somewhat hopeful that Volume Clubbing Mascara with it’s big chunky applicator brush might be the next awesome deal on the mascara hit list.
I purchased this rubbish for $17 USD in the color Brun Remix. Since I have only one other brown mascara in my entire mass collection I was thinking how beautifully it would compliment my eyes. The color is very nice. It’s a chocolate brown with a tiny sheen of lighter gold!
As I mentioned the brush is big and chunky which I always find great for application however in this case I think both the brush and the formula of the mascara just create one big, nasty mess on your lashes.
I curled my lashes prior to use and proceeded to apply. What came out was a clumpy mess of wet mascara. My lashes were literally stuck together in large, wet chunks. It was thee most disgusting look I’ve ever gotten from mascara. This failed to separate my lashes, yes I did get some volume, but forget the volume what about the mess of clumping I had going on here?! It almost felt like I was applying really old mascara to my lashes. Every notice when mascara ages it tends to clump lashes up badly? That would be the case with this mascara.
It’s seriously a mess to use, an absolute mess.
After spending the next five minutes coming my lashes out and disturbing the product better with my own mascara comb, since the bloody brush was of no use, I decided I’d give it a test drive out for the day.
Flaking, smudging, raccoon eye nightmare.
Bad, bad idea to go out of the house with this crap on my eyelashes.
I came home with flakes of mascara all over my cheeks, dark, runny streaks of mascara under my eyes, and just grossness all around.
I am so utterly and completely shocked and disappointed how bad this truly is.
Bourjois Paris Volume Clubbing Mascara gets a big fat DON’T BUY from the Muse!
Big waste of cash!
Hating it as much as the Muse!
