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.
Waterproof: 9.5/10 (hard to remove)
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 :-)
