Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl

This mascara was a very pleasant surprise for me. I bought it a few months ago as part of a Bourjois 3 for 2 offer in Boots. I didn't have anything in mind for the third free product and as I was running out of mascara I decided to try the Volume Glamour Ultra Curl mascara


Products Used:

Benefit The Porefessional Primer
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in Light Vanilla
Revlon Rich Sable Matte Eye Shadow
No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Pencil in Brown
Collection Clear Mascara
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
Urban Decay eye shadows in Suspect, Snakebite and Foxy
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Zero
No7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil in Brown
NARS Blush in Sin
theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighting Powder
No7 Perfect Light Loose Powder in Translucent
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

At first I wasn't feeling this mascara at all, but after using it a few times I grew to love it. It gives your lashes some serious curl and volume but without that clumpy look, although if you like that I'm sure you could achieve it with some extra coats. I usually curl my eyelashes with my Shu Uemura curlers and then do two coats of mascara on top and one on the bottom lashes which works perfectly for a daytime look. I even find myself wearing just this mascara and no other eye make up because I love how it looks by itself.

The wand is spoon shaped similar to that of Maybelline The Falsies and the formula is that perfect mixture of not too dry and not too wet making it easy to apply extra coats if you want to. If you like eyelashes with volume that hold a curl then I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

You can find this on the Boots website for €10.99.

Have you ever tried this mascara before? What one are you using at the moment?

    1. Aw thanks Tom, glad to have you! Hope you're having a lovely week too!

  3. I mainly use a Maybelline mascara but more out of habit than any particular attachement! I have long but poker-straight eyelashes so I'm definitely going to give this a try and shall report back :)

    1. You should definitely try the Shu Uemura curlers then, my lashes aren't particularly straight but I heard they work really well on straight lashes!

  4. That mascara looks amazing! Looks like your wearing false lashes as each lash looks perfect!

    1. Thanks cel! My friend actually asked me was I wearing false lashes when I was wearing this the other day!

  5. Oh my god....sooo pretty! Your lashes look amazing and sooo perfect like a pair of falsies!

    1. Thank you, I'm delighted to have found this hidden gem!
