I've had one of Bourjois 1001 Lashes mascaras to test for a while now and the first thing that struck me about it was the sleek packaging. White's an unusual choice for a mascara and it's a nice shape too - in cross-section it's sort of lemon-shaped, so it feels good in the hand. But that's all just dressing for the actual product itself, and is it any cop?
A new-gen wand greets you when you unscrew the cap - it's a double-helix doofer that's slim, curvy and packed full of little spikes. I like these sort of wands way better than bog-brush types because while they take getting used to, they're incredibly precise and don't leave half their load behind on your eyelid, as opposed to your lashes.
Designed to really get in at every lash - and all its surfaces - yes, I'm glad to report this works. It's my daytime go-to now and two coats define really well, thicken and lengthen and the result is flattering and realistic - no stuck-together spiders legs here. If you fancy giving it a lash (ba doom-tssch!), then we have TWENTY to give away!
Each is worth €12.99 and you can bag 1001 Lashes in three colours: black, brown and blue. Want to win? Details are after the cut!
