    bourjois talons aiguilles mascara

    i've worked as a professional makeup artist on and off for several years, and due to this i'm often given samples of products i'd never have bought on my own. generally speaking, i don't pay much attention to makeup brands. i splurge on quality skincare and base, and go for cheap-but-not-nasty pigments, liners and mascaras. (after all, as long as they look good and don't do any damage to your more/eyes/etc, there's not a mountain of difference between $5 and $50 eyeshadow.) that said, this is my absolute favourite mascara of all time. i've used countless others- cheap, ridiculously expensive, and everywhere in between- and as long as they didn't clump, run or flake off they were fine. never really gave them much thought. and then someone gave me a tube of this, and i realized that there could, indeed, be a noticeable difference. this mascara is designed to 'lengthen' lashes, NOT to volumize (so it's not full of fibres and fillers designed to stick between your lashes, making them seem fuller.) it went on super smooth, did not make any of my lashes stick together, and darkened all the way to the tips of my lashes on the first stroke. in fact, it functioned exactly like every mascara commercial i've ever seen CLAIMED to function- like it was giving a nice coat of paint to each individual lash. it stayed on all day (and all night, too, sometimes,) and it never gave me raccoon eyes, and then came off easily with just face-wash. the best part was that, because it didn't make my lashes stick together, it usually looked like i wasn't wearing mascara at all- just blessed with awesome lashes. and it was like $13, which is expensive compared to Great Lash but pretty dang cheap for designer cosmetics. and THEN it became freaking impossible to find in the US. i've tried other bourjois mascaras, and while they have their own merits none of them really stood up to this one. you can still find it online, occasionally, but at this point i'm worried about the age of the product. bourjois makes nice product, and this was the best of them all.
