Tried and tested: Bourjois Volumizer Mascara, £10.49

Our Beauty Editor Lan Nguyen road tests Bourjois’ new 2 step mascara

Finding the perfect mascara is just one of those personal things.

The step 1 mascara wand allows you to have natural coverage as there is less product. This in fact separates the lashes and you can apply over and over again.

To make them thicker you then use the step 2 mascara wand which has a bigger brush which loads more product which I first thought was really too thick. Until I start working it to the lashes they appeared thick instantly. Just by wiggling and working at the base of my lashes they went where I wanted and really did give the illusion of fuller and thicker lashes.

A trick that I use on my celebrity clients has been to use false lashes after step 1, then apply a few layers of step 2. This really melt the real and false lashes together.  Using step 1 over again to get rid of excess product. This really does the trick!
