Winter is a time of festive cheer, snuggly jumpers, and er, icy winds. My poor eyes can’t always handle this, and there has been the odd occasion where I’ll pop out to the shops and come home with black under my eyes.
I’ve taken to wearing waterproof mascara as a result of this, not just in the winter, but all year round, just because it’s so convenient to not have to worry about looking like a panda. This did pose a bit of a problem at first though – I had to go back to the drawing board with my favourite mascaras. All the ones I normally loved, just didn’t measure up when I bought the waterproof versions. The change in formula meant they were a completely different mascara.
As somebody who likes a LOT of volume, I was a bit miffed at how lame a lot of the waterproof versions of old favourites were. Who has the time to pile on 45 coats of mascara in the morning to get any volume at all, when you’re rushing out the door to work?
I was delighted when I picked up the Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Waterproof in Boots one day, and brought it home to find that IT DIDN’T SUCK! At all. I am very happy to report that I can happily pop on one coat of this, and leave the house with lovely looking lashes. Of course, I never really apply just one coat if I can help it, so time permitting I still add a few more coats just to build up even more volume, but this is very easy to achieve with this mascara.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a good waterproof mascara, I definitely recommend picking this one up next time you’re some place that sells Bourjois products!
If anyone can recommend me any more good waterproof formulas to try, I’d love to give them a shot and see how they compare!
