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.

The mascara itself is good, but the brush is horrible and the application was clumpy and flaky.
So I washed the brush from my old Bourjois Volume Glamour mascara and used that instead, and it was much better.

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...

i bought this after reading all the fab reviews on here about how it never smudged, and how good at volumising it was.
how disappointed i am with it now i've bought it, £8 down the drain :(
- it smudges all the time, i only get an hours wear before the little black smudges appear, and after i wore it on a night out to see a comedian (after a good laugh) I was HORRIFIED with the appalling heavy dark smudges under my eyes (trust me it looked horrendous!)
- far too much product comes out with brush, it would give lovely volume if bourjois had designed the neck of the tube properly! (no excuses bourjois, that is a fault you should have spotted in development!)
- i'll admit that it does look after my lashes, and they've definitely grown and look healthier, and they do curl my upper lashes quite good as well.
i really am disappointed with it, not about that it smudges, but because this is such a good mascara in the making, but in the making only. if bourjois could just fix the application so that the brush isn't over saturated, and fix the formula so it doesn't smudge then i would definitely buy it again, but till then i won't be repurchasing.

Absolutely love it! It gives a lot of volume to the lashes, while it looks completely natural. Doesn't flake or smudge, stays all day, and it has a nice, smooth texture which makes your lashes really soft. All time favorite.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Fine Eyes: Brown
I love how my very short and sparse lashes look with this but....this
smudges on me TERRIBLY. I have extremely oily eyelids and even waterproof and so call smudge proof mascaras smudge on me. But this smudges terribly. If you don't have problems with smudges, this is a great mascara. It volumises, looks natural and defined at the same time, doesn't clumb....

This is a really good mascara at a fair price! It builds volume and length, doesn´t smudge, is easy to remove and feels nice and "soft" on the lashes.
The only thing that I find a tad annoying about this product, is the fact that the brush tends to leave a messy blob of mascara on the end of the brush and I do find a bit hard to work with the big brush on the fine inner lashes.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
I reccomend this mascara. It gives your lashes length, volume and some curve; doesn't give you panda eyes; lasts forever. The package is nice and chick. The price is super reasonable too. What else..? Well I think it's nice that it cares of your lashes.

After reading the reviews on makeupalley, I decided to order it from ASOS (I can't seem to find it in Canada). For the price ($14.00 CAD), I think this mascara is really good. It gives a soft look to my lashes without being clumpy. It doesn't bother my eyes (I wear contact lenses) and it doesn't flake which is the best part! It lengthens, separates, and holds a curl and you can layer a few coats for a more dramatic look. I wish the colour was a darker though, so I took off 1 lippie for that. I usually buy Diorshow unlimited (which is $36.00) and although it's not as dark or as dramatic, you really can't go wrong with this mascara. I'm not sure if or when they will carry it in North America but I know ASOS has it (and they don't charge for shipping).

Bought this because of the raving reviews! It is a truly great mascara! Lightweight, clean, gives good result quickly. It separates really well!
It falls a bit short in the lengthening departement but can be used in combination with a lengthening mascara like f.e. Bourjois' Elastic mascara.
Despite all this I will not purchase again because it DOES make my lashes fall out. Big dissapointment for an ULTRA CARE mascara!
I am sticking with Lóreal extra volume collagen which is really kind to the lashes. I should know, cause I regularly sleep with mascara on.

Average mascara. Yes, it lenghtens, curls, gives definition, is buildable. But it also clumps, and worse, it does not stay put. I do not sweat that much but it still transfers to my upper lids very visibly so that I have to keep checking myself in the mirror and wiping it. At a party, it's annoying, but at work, it's completely unacceptable. So no, this did not impress me and I will certainly never buy again.

This product is AWESOME. Slightly more expensive than other drgustore mascaras, but very much worth the price.
Depending on how you use it, it can be very very volumising, and lengthening. The formula is slightlly thick and wet but I think that's how its able to give so much volume. However, I like it for its length more, and I dont usually go for the ultra volumized look except for going out at night. It really is extremely versatile!
However when you first open it, it might be really heavy and clumpy, so it does take some getting used to.
The best part is it made my lashes GROW. By the time I finished the mascara, my lashes were at least 30% longer and thicker. And for my stick straight, asian lashes, this product truly is a mini miracle.
Will definitely buy again. And again.

I bought this after reading the rave reviews on here and really wanted to like it. A longstanding and faithful user of Dior's Diorshow mascara (in black), I was looking for a brown mascara for days when I wanted to play up my lips or go a little more natural. I chose this one for the glowing reviews and the fact that it wasn't too expensive. I should also add here that I bought this in France, and am unsure how much the product differs from country to country, but while I'll admit that this is a decent mascara with good staying power, I find that it has a tendency to clump a bit and go on unevenly. The brush comes out of the tube so loaded up with product that unless you have the patience to use a clean brush for each application, it ends up being a bit of a mess. It also had a mild chemical smell that put me off.
All in all, it's a decent mid-range drugstore mascara, but in my opinion there are better ones out there for the same price (i.e. L'Oreal Voluminous mascara and Maybelline Greatlash).

I bought this product because my some mascaras make my eyelashes fall out... so I thought I could have sensitive eyes. I do quite like it; it gives my eyelashes great volume and length, though you have to be careful about it clumping. It holds a curl fairly well and doesn't give me panda eyes. However the brush is annoying because it isn't tapered to a point like most brushes are; it leaves a messy blob of mascara on the end of the brush. I haven't noticed my eyelashes growing more ( but I'm not sure it's supposed to do that anyway) but there seems to be less eyelashes falling out. So overall, a fairly nice mascara that I might buy again.

I am a serious sucker for natural looking mascaras, since most mascaras make my (very long) eyelashes look like the legs on a spider. I only apply mascara to my upper lashes, since my lower lashes are, well... Freakishly long.
My sister had tried this mascara out for a while, and she couldn't make it work for her, so she gave it to me. The second I got home I curled my lashes (they don't curl naturally at ALL) and I carefully applied this as if I was 'coating' my lashes - no quick movements, no side-to-side movements, I just started at the root of my lashes and sloooowly pulled the brush upward 'til the end of my lashes. After applying the mascara, I use a heating eyelash-curler to top off the look.
The result? AMAZING.
I always use brown mascara, but I got this in black, and even so - my lashes look (with this particular technique) soooo natural and long. I love the texture of this stuff - it truly does feel like it is 'caring' for your lashes - VERY smooth without wearing off.
My eyelashes truly does look like a bambi, and I'm sure that you can make the look dramatic if that's the look you're aiming for, just by using another technique.
**I use the "soft black".

I can't believe I've overlooked this before! I've tried every mascara in the known universe for my pale pathetic lashes. This one is amazing. It builds up really easy to make the softest lushest full-bodied lashes - so much so I rarely use my Clinique lash primer underneath this as I don't have to.
It doesn't make your lashes go crispy, it doesn't produce those horrible 'bobbly' bits on the end of your lashes, and the best thing of all is that if you're touching up your make up later in the day, you can apply this on top of what's already on your lashes and it almost 're-wets' and softens the mascara so you can build it even more!
I'm on my 3rd tube of this and I think I've found my perfect mascara!

I have been using this mascara everyday for a month now. The wand is a little longer than I am used too, but the smaller brush head (as compared to Maybelline The Colossal) makes it easy to get to my inner corner lashes, and can coat bottom lashes without any smudges. I can build up a LOT of coats without any clumping at all, and my lashes stay soft and flexible throughout the whole day. I have never had this smudge, or experience any fall out or those annoying black flecks on the top of my cheeks. I also think my lashes seem to be in better condition, and fall out less since using this mascara. The only reason I have left off one lippie is because I think it needs a smaller neck on the tube, as the brush does come out with excessive mascara on the end, which I need to wipe off. But I will be buying this again :)

I'm not very picky when it comes to mascaras so perhaps that's why I didn't notice this one perfoming any better than my other ones. The formula is nice, it doesn't smudge or flake but the wand does pack on waaaay too much product so I have to wipe it before application. This has resulted in the top of the tube looking like a big mess and because the packaging is white it is even more obvious. I don't have any other complaints but it's nothing special either.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Fine Eyes: Black
I was a bit skeptical when I went out and got this, since I was really disappointed with their Volume Glamour mascara. I must say, though, I'm loving it!
The formula is light enough not to weigh my lashes down, and thick enough to create drama. No clumps, no crumbles, no smudging, no flaking...
It builds up volume, separates, lengthens and even curls my super straight short lashes! And just to make my dream come true...finally a mascara that doesn't irritate my eyes...not the least bit!
I love the white tube, makes it unique-looking. The brush is feathered out well and it was the main reason I got encouraged to buy this.
I apply a light layer to the top of my lashes, then I start swiping under the lashes while turning the wand and wiggling it right to left. A m a z i n g.
Writing this review right now made me realize I found my HG mascara! Guess I was so used to not liking something about every mascara I didn't notice this one hit all the points! Thanks to all the MUAers here!
