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.

Liner effect? I guess the name 'smudgy-effect' doesn't sound as good. I found that this mascara was quite difficult to use - the wand sounded good, with its short stubby plastic teeth on one side and long skinny ones on the other, but actually using it is difficult! It's very easy to get smudges with this - smudges beneath the eyebrows and on the upper waterline. I guess at least it's easy to reach the roots of your lashes with it? Also, I found the formula of the mascara quite thick and clumpy.
Definitely would not re-buy. I hope Bourjois work on this mascara's formula and wand, because the idea is awesome, but the actual product needs work.

Not a fan at ALL. Maybe if you are great at applying make-up, it will work. I found it didn't give any liner effect, and wasn't a decent mascara either.
The sales rep told me it was easy to apply. It's not. It is easy to get mascara all over your eyelid and under-eye area, if that's the look you're going for.
Packaging is pretty ugly; a really big, thick tube. It did have a squared-off edge which I thought was clever (keeps it from rolling off your vanity and into the toilet!)
Didn't look like I was wearing eyeliner. I rather stick with an easier-to-use mascara, like the Lorac I'm using now or good old Clinique.

Probably the best mascara I've ever used, although it doesn't actually give you a 'liner effect' it does lengthen the lashes really well with no clumps and easy to go straight from the root to the tips. Lovely product!

things i like about this mascara:
- it comes in brown, true brown.
- it really does give a liner effect and pulls certain eye looks together.
- it lengthens without getting clumpy (depending on how many layers you apply, of course)
- it looks fantastic and dries fast.
- the wand is really useful, wish more mascaras would follow suit with this particular design.
reasons why i don't like this mascara
- even the non waterproof formula is very difficult to remove. using eye-makeup remover doesn't help, if anything it pulls your lashes off. never experienced this with a mascara before.
- it's far more pricey than it deserves to be for what it does.
i'll probably buy this again as my max factor 2000 calorie is discontinued, but this will not remain a staple in my "essentials" by any means.

Wow! This mascara gives a beautiful look - I am very fair and the black is very dramatic, while the brown is beautiful and (to me) perfectly appropriate for daytime wear. I don't know where all those lashes came from. I am pretty uncoordinated but have not had any problem poking myself in the eye with the plastic brush - I actually love the brush because the hard plastic bristles really separate my lashes. I have not tried to get the "liner" effect although I do use the short side of the brush to coat my lashes first, then the long side to lengthen and separate. I think I'm getting a bit of the doe eyed look without "lining" my eyes just because all those lashes show up.
I did get some under eye smudging the first time I used it - maybe I didn't let it dry before closing my eyes, because since then no problems. I ordered the black in waterproof from ebay - it appears Bourjois will no longer be sold in the US????? I hope Bourjois will continue to make this mascara for a long long time. But they seem to discontinue things pretty quickly :-(

This mascara takes some work, when I first started using it I kept on poking myself in the eye and getting mascara on the inner rim of my eye but after about a week I got the hang of using the brush. Once you get the application technique right this look amazing and is totally worth the effort, it really does give a doe-eyed look and makes it look like you have loads of lashes. This is the most dramatic mascara I have ever found, it is not so much volumising but seems to define every lash and especially define the root of the lashes. It is really tricky to remove (but this also means it lasts well with no flaking / smudging) but I have found emur followed by oil cleanser does the job. For me this will be my going out mascara and I think I will even use it on my wedding day it looks that good. For everyday I use volume glamour ultra care as it is a lot gentler on my lashes and easy to remove. If you've had success with other bourjois mascaras give this one a try.

I bought the waterproof version, so that's what the review is for. It's AMAZING. The most leghtening mascara i have ever tried, it's really dramatic. It's also extremely dark, very very black, and makes my eyelashes pop like no other. It's not exactly volumising, but separates eyelashes decently. Not only does it hold up a curl, it can actually curl your eyelashes. Oh yeah.
When it's comes to waterproof perfomance, once it dries it doesn't go anywhere until you remove it. I've worn it at the beach, been half an hour on the ocean and rubbed the water off my eyes several times, and it didn't smudge one bit.
The wand is a nice concept, however i sometimes poke myself in the eye with it and that had never happened with other mascaras.
Still, one of the best mascaras i have ever tried.
