[Review] Bourjois Push Up Volume Glamour Mascara & Lash Machine Fibre

More product reviews coming in guys! How many of you here have tried or heard of the Brand Bourjois? Most of us could easily tell it's a french brand based on their name and seen them in our local pharmacies since early 2014 when they were first introduced to our market.
Though they've been around for almost close to 2 years (thanks to my sis who constantly raves about it) but never got myself to try them out as you all know i am super faithful to my Asian (Japan & Korea) brands and kinda reluctant to try European brands since most of their formulas are made for Caucasian skin type and weather. Only Asian brands know what we Malaysians need as we are almost quite similar :P

Bias, i know! Haha.
But never try, we'll never know right?

This product was sent for a reviewing purposes on a beauty website Muffin.com and hate to admit that so far i am actually loving this mascara, looking to explore more products from this brand too.
The only thing i didn't like about it (the mascara) was it's bulky design that made it so not travel friendly since it's size and shape took up quite some space in my cosmetic bag.
The fibre booster size was slim, so i had no problem with that, only wish the mascara was as slim lol.

How to use the Fribre booster?

The fibre booster is meant to add more volume & length to your lashes which is suitable for those lacking of long natural lashes. I understand that not all of us are that blessed but at least we know there are things to help us out a lil haha.
According to the Fibre booster instructions you are supposed to apply in in between your mascara coats to maximize results.
But for this experiment i tried using it as a base first (before any mascara) and applied more fibre (1-2 more times) after my 2 coats of mascara.

With fibre you can see the lashes are longer than the one without any.

Honestly they should have market these 2 as a package deal (buy 2 for the price of RMXX) as it works very well with each other giving women out there desirable luscious long lashes without having to go for lash extension lol.
Don't get me wrong, on it's own the mascara already performs quite well in terms of lengthening but not too much on volume, though it states on it's name that it's a "Volume Mascara". 

The bristles on the mascara is great for capturing every single fine lash, making sure it's well coated but unfortunately it's rather too big for lower lashes. I always end up having to clean around the edges for smudges caused by the large brush. I would love to have this mascara, brush and all in a smaller/thinner version then it would be just perfect for short Asian sparse lashes.

The mascara is considered "quick drying (about 1-2 min), not as fast as Kiss Me's mascara (less than 1 min) but still quicker than your slowest drying mascara lol.
Proven that this mascara is waterproof & long lasting up to 24 hours as claimed, you'll need a strong make up remover to melt the mascara before wiping it off, so if you are going for a soppy movie or gym you may use this mascara since i've not encountered any flaking or panda eyes after a long day.
And my definition of long day includes alot of sweating :P
Removing process might be tricky so best be patient with it, to quicken the process try using Kiss Me's mascara remover.

But overall, the results are satisfying despite the tedious cleaning up, check out my photo below. 
Lengthening: 8.5/10
Volume: 4.5/10
Waterproof: 7/10

You can see there is not much "volume" in it.

This product is available in your local leading pharmacies, will update the price later lol.

**Disclaimer: Though the product is sponsored for reviewing purposes, this does not affect my judgement as I have tried & proven it myself :-)

Wow dear. It really lengthens so much. It would be great for event without having to stick false eyelashes

Miera Nadhirah Tan said...

ok. nice long lashes though not so much volume.. could be worth trying out.....

Rawlins GLAM said...

The waterproof quality might make or break it as it is so good that it is hard to remove. That might pose a bit of a problem for those who like to wash their face as quickly as possible. Hehehe.

FiSh. ohFISHiee said...

Ivy Kam said...

Been hearing so much about this brand recently, would like to try it out too for a more beautiful eye lashes :)

Isaac Tan said...

honestly, i'm more attracted to those blue lenses.. :P and with or without fibre, they really do look almost the same ><

Jessica Yong said...

You actually look like you have falsies on. haha. Which is good since all you used was the fiber and mascara. Shall check out this product. Heard a lot of good reviews. But tbh, your review has the best pictures to compare. Which camera are you using btw? :D

Arisa Chow said...

haha thanks babe! it's a decent drugstore product la, nothing special.
Im using my HTC DesireEYE for all my pictures ;-)
That phone does wonders because front & back camera are both 13MP.

Arisa Chow said...

LOLLLLLL you guys all kena distracted liao XD

Arisa Chow said...

Thanks Fish dear! :*

Arisa Chow said...

Yea, should dear! It's quite affordable think it's less than 30 bucks :)

Arisa Chow said...

go try babe! this one sure no regrets getting especially if you just want lengthening effect

Arisa Chow said...

thanks auntie lilly!

Arisa Chow said...

yep, but not really satisfied with the volume, from far can't see my lashes in photos during events :(

Arisa Chow said...

if you are like me looking for both volume and length i would recommend kiss me mascara. their waterproof lvl is even better than this :)

Arisa Chow said...

Yes! haha, not for the lazy kind of people XD But this tends to wear off on it's own after 12 hours, so removal also becomes slightly easier.
