two mascara repurchases

two mascara repurchases review swatch photo

Recently I found myself without a mascara that I really liked. I mean I have a lot of mascara, but none that really rocked my world. I toddled off to Boots to repurchase my favourite drugstore mascara Bourjois Twist Up the Volume Mascara. It’s one of those sort of gimmicky mascaras that twist up to add volume and twist down to give length. Not that I notice a difference between the two settings, but the mascara is damn good. However, I was of course distracted by the counter of dreams - Chanel. I remembered how much I loved the Chanel Les Volumes de Chanel mascara, but for some reason I never blogged about it.

Both mascaras work a treat at giving that much desired “doll” eyed look. Super volumisied to the sky lashes. Although vastly different in the price range I love them both. One’s perfect for a treat and the other is a great everyday mascara.

  1. I can imagine how lux it must feel to use the Channel one! But the Bourjois twist up the volume is one of my favourites too x

  16. I would love to buy a Chanel mascara, but I just can't justify it to myself when drugstore ones do just as good a job! Maybe one day... :)

  17. They don't carry Bourjois in the US, at least where I live! It looks super cool--I've never seen a twistable mascara before, how strange!
