The only mascara i don't feel guilty when i apply it since my lashes are thick but short. It seperates , adds volume and a little length without clumps or smudges.layeres so well.looks natural but adds great difference to daily look. If you're looking for something dramatic it's not for you. It's soft on lashes due to conditioning oils (almond and cotton oils). Creamy formula. Lasts pretty long. .Easy to take off with water and soap.
I love Bourjois

At first I was a bit irritated by the longer wand - I'm used to Maybelline. It surely was an average mascara for me when I was wearing glasses but since I've switched to contacts I can get enough of this mascara. It looks natural yet adds a lot to my eyes. Also, I really think I've grown much more lashes!

PROS:
- looks natural, gives me decent volume and a little length
- doesn't make my lashes crunchy
- doesn't clup, flake or smudge
- holds curl
- doesn't irritate sensitive eyes !
- one coat is enough, but it layeres well
- easily removable
- conditiones lashes (cotton and almond oil)
- great formula, not too dry or too wet
- very black
- beautiful, chic packaging

CONS:
- sometimes the brush picks up too much product
- very non water-resistent, it slides of immediately when my eyes get watery
- a little pricy (12$ where I live)

My experience:
I really like this mascara. It's great everyday mascara, looks natural and doesn't make lashes crunchy. It gives me nice natural volume, lengthens a bit, but nothing over the top. I like that the colour is very black and it can be layered easily for more dramatic lashes. On me it holds curl very well (I curl my lashes only before I put mascara on), doesn't smudge, doesn't flake and overall holds up great during the day. The brush is big but very manageable, nothing extreme. It doesn't clump and I hate mascaras that stick lashes together and make you look like you have three fat lashes. I take it off easily using Garnier micellar water or Bourjois makeup remover. I love the black&white packaging, it looks so chic and elegant. And really important thing for me: I have very sensitive eyes; I wear glasses and read every day at least 8 hours and this mascara doesn't irritate my eyes at all. Never. It didn't dry my lashes out and they are long and strong when I use this mascara. On tube it says that it contains cotton and sweet almond oils. The formula is great and creamy, not too dry, not too wet.
What bothered me was that sometimes the brush picks up too much product, but that is better after one week of use, when the formula becomes a little drier. But anyway you can scrape off the excess easily, it's no big deal for me. Another thing is that this mascara is very non-waterproof. It starts sliding off right away when it gets in contact with water. It isn't marked as waterproof so I can't really say it is a con but I would personally like that is just a little bit more water-resistant so that I don't have to wipe off mascara immediately if my eyes water a little.
It is a little pricy, it costs about 12$ where I live. I can often buy it on sale for 8 or 9 bucks so it's ok, but still it would be great if it was cheaper.
All in all, 5/5 and I would definitely buy it again.

Good basic mascara. Perfect for a natural look. I use this on days when I wear eyeshadow, when I don't need over the top volume. It's very black and it doesn't clump, making it the perfect mascara for when you have full eye look going on.

This became my favorite mascara after Maybelline full and soft discontinued. The brush has the softest bristles I have ever used. The formula is smooth, but not watery. I find it is very easy to apply this mascara. I used to apply two or three coats of Maybelline full and soft to get the look I want, but now I only need to apply one coat of Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Care. It gives me soft, full, and natural looking lashes that's perfectly thickened and darkened, no smudging, no clumping. Perfect.

This is a good mascara...I have been trying so many, every time one finishes I buy a new one to try. Until now, just this one and MaxFactor 2000 calories satisfied me.

Pros:
- buildable
- nice volume without clumps, it even looks good in one layer(is the first mascara i use just in one layer sometimes)
- it can be removed easily
- doesn't irritate my eyes

Cons:
- it summer can smudge a little, but for winter is perfeeeect!

Great idea but reacted badly with my eyes. Had terrible itchy watery eyes for weeks before I finally realised this was the problem! Stopped using it and immeditely the irritation was gone. Strange as I love the other Bourjois mascaras and have no problems with them. Would not recommend to those with sensitive eyes.

My best mascara ever! It's really black, easy to use, dries quickly, but it's very buildable. I recommend for everyone ! I'm on my 6th tube now, but I'm still very happy with it!

This is my second tube I have experiemented with other mascaras hi end and drugstore but I came back to this one, I have curly lashes and with other mascaras my eyelashes feel loaded, this is comparable to the more expensive lashes but cheaper and it its really pigmented black, cares for my lashes and it doesnt smudge on me and I wash it off with soap and water, the plus is it cares for your lashes, I think that Bourjois owns Chanel cosmetics so thats a good indication of the quality.

I've been using it for 3 years and I love it! My eyelashes are very long and curled, so anything looks ok. But this one truly gives them volume and body, my eyes look much better. It's the first one on my list, together with Maybelline Volume Express the Colosal.
Now, it's true that it differs from country to country: it doesn't have the same texture or intensity. I checked it myself and I was very surprised. I don't know if they change the formula or what's going on...
