Review | Bourjois Twist Up The Volume Mascara

Hi Everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!! I have another mascara review for you today! This was my first time trying a Bourjois product. My friend gave it to me and I assume she got it as a free gift with purchase or something.

It’s really interesting because you twist the top and the wand can go from long and straight to shorter and coiled like DNA ← this is probably the extent of ‘science-y talk’ that I will have on my blog.

Twist Up The Volume Mascara in Ultra Black

1 TRANSFORMABLE BRUSH WITH 2 RESULTS: DEFINED LENGTH + OVERSIZED VOLUME Two transformable brushes in one! Use position 1 to lengthen and separate lashes. Use position 2 to volumize and intensify lashes. Its ultra black formula quickly builds full coverage and volume on every single lash.

It’s kind of funny. The fact that you can twist the top part so that the wand is straight or coiled makes me think of going to the eye doctor. Is it a 1 or a 2…1 or a 2? The mascara coats the lashes nicely and it doesn’t look clumpy. The mascara will transfer a bit if you rub your lashes. When I applied the mascara, my lashes were curled. After a few hours, the lashes on my left eye were straight and the lashes on my right eye were a bit curled, but not as much as when I initially applied it. For some reason, the lashes on my right eye can hold a curl better.

The wand definitely give you two different results. When it’s in position 1 (straight), it separates the lashes and makes them look very natural. In position 2 (coiled), you can definitely tell that it intensifies the lashes and gives you a thicker coat of mascara. So, you can get a natural look or smokey look with just one mascara. I think I prefer the natural look on myself. I don’t like when it looks like I’m wearing mascara or when I can feel the mascara weighing my lashes down.

REVIEW // Twist Up the Volume with this Bourjois Mascara! You twist the top of the wand and it goes from straight to coiled (like DNA). Position 1 (straight) separates your lashes and gives you a very natural look. Position 2 (twisted/coiled) gives you more volume. I personally prefer a natural look, so I prefer position 1. I don't like when my lashes are stiff and you can tell I'm wearing mascara. If you're looking for a 2-in-1 mascara, I'd recommend this. It is a bit more expensive for a drugstore mascara, but it's like buying two cheaper drugstore mascaras (one for natural days and one for a more glam look). RATING: 4/5 #bourjois #mascara #review #discoverunder5k #makeup #drugstore #2in1 #shoppersdrugmart #canadianbeautyblogger #torontoblogger

I like the silicone brush and I like the fact that you can get two different looks in one mascara. I think this would be worth splurging on because it’s the same as buying two cheaper drugstore brand mascaras.
