I’m a huge mascara junkie! I have ridiculous amounts and it’s the one thing I can’t resist getting especially when something looks a bit different. I’d only tried one Bourjois mascara before this one and absolutely loved it so I was hoping it wasn’t a fluke.
Today I thought I’d share my thoughts on Bourjois’ Fan-Tastic Volume Mascara. I like the purple packaging, it’s easy to spot in my make up bag and it’s much flatter in shape than most mascaras.
Here is where it gets different. The brush only has bristles on one side. At first I wasn’t convinced. I was sure it would be hard to apply and surely I couldn’t coat all of my lashes with only half of a brush.
It’s also quite a wet formula and a plastic brush which I don’t normally prefer. The bristles do have good separation between them though and a fan shape which claims to grab the lashes and provide volume.
Here you can see the before and afters. It really lengthens my lashes and gives good volume through the bas of my lashes. This is after a few coats. I love that it really doesn’t clump and gives a good black colour pay off.
Even though the formula is wet I don’t find it transfers to my upper brow or under my eyes which mascaras have been lately. I also find the brush surprisingly easy to use. I was worried it would only give good results on one side as I wasn’t sure I’d get the angle right on the other eye but it really is a great everyday mascara.
I find myself reaching for this on a daily basis but for a night out I do prefer a bit more volume.
Have you tried fan-tastic volume?
