Shop My Stash review – Bourjois Elastic Mascara
The packaging: I love the packaging! I think it’s a very funky shaped container while still looking down to earth and nice. I was worried that it would be difficult to hold it while applying but it’s really no problem at all.
The applicator wand is pretty standard – straight and with tiny brush… thingies? (excuse me, I can’t remember words in this heat) made of plastic. It’s fine and works.
The smell: The mascara smells like mascara, I assume. Nothing too fancy but it doesn’t smell weird and chemical like some mascaras tend to do.
The texture: It’s a very, very wet mascara and you definitely need to be careful when applying it. As you can see on the picture, I got some smudge above my eye and some on my lower lashes even though I only blinked. So if you’re in a hurry I would recommend choosing a different mascara or do your very best not to blink or look down for a good few minutes.
Does it work? It works but it’s not my favorite. I like it for elongating the lashes but using it on it’s own, without curling your lashes (like in the picture above) doesn’t give the best effect on my lashes. I do tend to use it on top of my other mascaras because I get the long lashes but they don’t stick together.
Rating: 3.5/5 stars. The only downside is that it’s too wet and sticks the lashes together but it’s also a big downside, thus the 3.5 stars. But if used on top of another mascara it’s really good and I do use it almost every day.
Have you tried this? What’s your favorite mascara?
