Not bad for everyday use. Nothing spectacular. It only separates and lengthens the lashes. Easy and pleasant to apply. Doesn't clump or smudge. It also holds the curl quite well. Guess it's an okay mascara but I will not be using it often.

I've been having bad luck with mascaras recently. I like Bourjois so I went and picked up two mascaras that had really great reviews. This was one of them and I bought the waterproof version.
This was easy to put on but did scrape the base of my lashes a little with the rubber nubs on the short side of the brush. (I've been using MAC's Studio Fix mascara so I'm used to hard plastic wands).
I really hated the effect this had on my lashes. It did make it look like I had tightlined my eyes and it lengthened my lashes but made them all stick together like glue, all pointy like. I tried to comb through them afterwards and that just made it worse! It also flaked as I was putting it on! (I've uploaded a pic of me with and without this mascara on so you can see what I mean! Please note: I didn't curl my lashes before trying this out so maybe I'd have had a different result, I don't know.)
I decided to test if it was really waterproof so I splashed my face with a bit of water after it had dried and I had black mascara running down my face! It's NOT waterproof at all! And it took ages to dry.
I don't know what I'm going to do with this tube but I won't be using it again. I got it on sale so at least I didn't spend full price on it.
(EDIT - So I wiped down the wand until almost nothing is left on the brush and it works well in lengthening but the formula is way too thick and flakes *everywhere* after it dries. It's also messy and I manage to smear it on my top lash line (not in a pretty "faux liner" kinda way) no matter what. It does make my lashes look spidery without even trying so I can't put on more than one coat. I really hate the formula, the wand is a nice design.)

my new favorite mascara:) doesn't weigh down my lashes and really separates and lengthens. a bit expensive for a drugstore brand though

Boujois makeup has always been an ok drugstore buy, but I did not get on with this mascara at all (waterproof version) :( I tried using it three times, using is sparingly (just use one coat) and throughout the day bits seemed to be falling off into my eyes! I ended up having to get eyedrops as my left eye started to stick together! Not good at all. I have had to throw it away as I am not prepared to try it again and get another eye infection! Maybe I was just unlucky?! But since I have gone back to using my usual Waterproof Maybelline all has been fine!

This is the BEST mascara I have ever come across! I got this in Doha, Qatar...I missed my flight back to Melbourne and had to spend an extra day there (I wasn't visiting just in transfer) so I decided to kill some time and do a bit of shopping. In the shopping center I asked the lady in the make up section what mascara she would recomend for my lashes and she said this one was good so I tried it!
Best purchase ever! I was using dior before this but this is so much better! For me, this works amazingly! It lenghens my lashes sooo much and the more I apply the longer they get. They don't stick together which is always a problem for me with other mascaras (I tried A LOT) this is the ONLY mascara I ever loved.I still try other ones but this is my go to mascara.
Only problem is it's not for really hot weather because it's not waterproof but for me it's not a problem, I will just fix it if smudges or wear a different one on really hot days. But this is really really amazing mascara and best of all it doesn't dry out as quickly as others! It lasts a REALLY long time.I've had it for a year and a hlaf now and it STILL works. I will of course re-purchase this!
Over all - doesn't stick your eye lashes together, lenghens them to the max! Amazing amazing product. (my lashes are naturally curly so I'm not sure if others will have a problem with droopy eye lashes or not but I don't have that problem)

This is an okay mascara, gives length, but not the best volume!

* WATERPROOF VERSION *
- This mascara ain't waterproof at all. Went swimming and after one hour it was all over the place.
Never buy this again!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This is one of the best mascaras i have ever tried! it gives tons of length while seperating almost every lash for intense realistic volume. i love the silicone brush, always much better then the old-school bristles. i find it stays black much longer than others & it does not transfer to my 'under-eye' area where i wear alot of cover-up for my dark circles. that is very important! no one wants racoon eyes! i highly recommened this product
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette, Curly, Medium Eyes: Blue
I used to love this mascara and use it everyday for more than a year when I decided to change (I can't remember why). Then I came across it last month and decided to buy it again.
I love the silicone brush to apply the first layers of mascara (I then use a bristle one to add a bit of volume).
The liner effect isn't obvious, but it does make your lashes look blacker from the roots to the tip.
For the first applications you have to remove the excess product on the brush or it will clump instantly.
It might take some time to dry but it doesn't make the eyes itch and it doesn't flake.

One of the best mascaras I've ever tried! The liner effect is not so noticable, but I don't mind since..if I wanted an eye-liner, I would put it, right!? ;) Pigmentation is great, it's very light on the eyes (you can't feel wearing it like some other mascaras!), the brush is made of some kind of rubber so it stays the same throughout the whole use... I don't mind it beeng liquid, cause after 2-3 months it dones't get too dry. It separates the lashes better than most of the masacaras I've ever tried. The only little drawback is that it's quite hard to take it off...even if it's not in waterproof version. Apart from that, a great, great mascara :)

This has got to be the best mascara out there. The brush on it is so unique. one side is for volume, and the other is for length. It really does its job of lengthening and volumizing your lashes. Unfortunately, i can only buy this product online. It was once sold at ULTA and i would get it for a great price with my discount. But i have gone out of my way to order it off their website because its totally worth it.

I'm as obsessed as buying new mascaras as I am foundation!
I like this one.
I have very fine, thin eyelashes which will never be made to look thick and full so i've stopped looking for that.
I don't see the liner effect here but it lengthens my lashes and frames my eyes nicely.
1 problem though - when I use the shorter bristles I often poke myself in the eye with it OUCH!
Oh and its very 'luiquid-y' and takes along time to dry which is not helpful when in a rush so take your time.

I bought this on close out at ULTA about a year ago. I think the price was $2.99. I had never even heard of this brand at the time but thought I would give the mascara a try since it was so cheap. I'm so glad I bought it. It's my HOLY GRAIL mascara. I'm in love. The double sided brush is genius. It doesn't give a dramatic thick liner look but it does appear you are wearing some eyeliner, plus I personally think it creates more volume for my lashes and makes them stand out more. I don't ever have problems with it flaking or smearing under my eyes. One note: It does take a little practice to get the hang of using the short bristled side of the brush. You will poke yourself in the eye the first few times.

I thought that this mascara is great on my bottom lashes because they are quite long but not good if you want to seal a curled upper lash. I have very short, straight upper lashes and the Waterproof seems really quite heavy and weighs them down. I'm a bit silly when it comes to Mascara and I often use a mascara that's suited for my bottom lashes and one for my upper lashes. I need to try mascaras that work for both so I'm not wasting my money :P Great idea though!

This is a 2 step mascara. The brush head has 2 faces with different bristle length and density. On one side, the bristle is short and dense, on the other side, the bristles long and sparse. According to instructions, I use the the short side to get the formula into the base of the lashes to create the effect of kohl liner, as well as volumizing the lashes, then use the longer side to comb out the the volumised lashes, lengthening them. love the idea, I think it is very clever and effective. The formula is very wet and will not hold any curl unless I use a polymer base mascara on top of this, great mascara to create a smudged rocker look with red stained lips or glam rock with silver shadow and nude lips.

the past 3 months ive tried a few mascaras dior diorshow 360 and bourjois rotating one, althought i loved the dior 360 its quite pricey at almost £30 and mascara does dry out so your probably loosing quite abit of the product. i tried the rotating one by bourjois and i was not impressed i didnt really like it at all
today i purchased this mascara as they have a offer on all mascaras £5.99 in boots so i checked some out and this is amazing i tried this just now and wow for the price aswell its amazing.
i love the brush as its not thick and clumped up its a very thin plastic brush with small soft brissles on one side and longer ones on the other very similer brush to an eyelash brush so it seperates i used the short ones on the lower lash and the bigger ones on my top lashes, i applied it and it made my lashes look amazing. its waterporrf and intense black so you dont need much.
ive tried many many many masaras from every dior one avalible, clinique, clarins even cheaper brands and this one kicks their butt.
defo worth the money not that its much to spend anyway.
i rated the packaging 2 as it wasnt in any box or anything and mine did not have a seal on but i checked it first to see if it was tested and looked new plus it was the last of 2 they had on the shelf so i snapped the one that looked like it hadnt been played with.
i reccomend people to try this and dont worry incase your allegic as im allergic to bourjois eyeshadows but their mascara doesnt bother me at all.
remember to get the one with the blue stripe down the side as the silver one is not waterproof

Perhaps this is a better product for those with long lashes. I have short, straight lashes and it certainly did not create a "liner" effect. The product itself is a bit messy. I'm very careful in how I handle my mascara wands, but after a few weeks there was a very thick ring on the tube itself. Add another week and the mascara basically had clumped/dried to form a plasticy ring that is hard to remove. This is an ok mascara, but I won't be buying it again based on the price and final effect on my lashes.

This product is amazing!! I bought it a few months ago because a friends recommended it to me. Because i naturally have very long eyelashes i can never find a mascara that really makes any difference but this one really did make my eyashes seem much much longer. It also gives a great liner effect so i don't feel the need to use eyeliner at all!! It doesn't clump either, and I like the fact that the wand is quite long which i find makes it easier to apply. This is definitely one of the best makeup products i have ever used!!

I bought this mascara two years ago because they had a nice selection of colors. I bought it in brown and blue. I really like the plastic wand, it makes it really easy to reach all your lashes. I prefer a clean look and hate clumps and this mascara worked really well, I've never experienced any smudging or flaking. I wear contact lenses and it didn't cause me any discomfort. Overall a nice product, but nothing amazing. The colors weren't that bright or pigmented either, it was a dark-bluish and dark-brownish color. Will not repurchase (especially if it's only available in black now, I have too many black mascaras already).

I liked this mascara a lot. It gives great volume and length. It doesn't smudge and the colour is very dark black. All in all it is a great mascara, one of my favourite. I will definitely buy it again.
