This is another Mascara review of those that I received in the hamper I won through Beauty Bulletin. I have used the Bourjois 1001 Lashes Black Quartz Mascara which is one of my favourites, so my expectations for this mascara were set very high.

Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Definition Mascara (RSP: R116)
From the website:
Its innovation: 500 bristle mega brush with ultra-fine and supple bristles coat every single lash for maximum volume. PLUS, its special brush tip contains lash micro-captors to reach even the smallest of lashes.
Its formula is enriched with volume-boosting agents and black pearl extract for fully coated intense black, luminous lashes that for up to 16 hours**.
And…it’s good for my eyes!
Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Its formula contains natural wax to protect and fortify your lashes.
I was rather puzzled by the wand. It is long and rather big in size then has lots of very short rubber bristles that I personally did not really like. Because they are so short I find it difficult to get them to grip each lash. The formula also seems to gather in certain areas on the wand (which you can see in the photo above) and that means that you battle to get an even coating of the formula onto each lash. The ends of my lashes seemed to catch onto those clumps of formula and I had to remove the excess from my lashes with a tissue. Usually when I take photos for mascara reviews I don't correct the lashes before taking the picture, but this time I had to take the excess off because I didn't want to risk getting any product into my eyes. That being said though, once you get use to the wand you are able to achieve a beautifully defined look with 1 coat, when I apply a second coat there is a bit of clumping that occurs (which you can again see in the photo above). The lashes can easily be separated with a dry wand afterwards.
