Boots 17 Va Va Voom Mascara

I picked up Boots 17 Va Va Voom Volume Mascara a few weeks ago. I have been wearing it every day since then as a road test of sorts.

First of all lets get the moneys out of the way. This is a cheap Boots brand product, I think I paid €6 for it.

It has a huge brush with oversized bristles which are designed to create big, dramatic lashes in one easy sweep. I think this mascara succeeds in it’s mission.

It’s easy to apply (you could nearly apply it without a mirror) I start by twirling the brush at the back of my lashes the moving to the front of the lashes, I wiggle the wand at the root and comb up. Since my lashes are so fair, for daytime I haven’t applied it to the bottom lashes. Instead I blink purposefully while the mascara is still a little tacky and the transfer of product does the job.

Today my sister commented on how long my lashes looked and I too noted that they looked good. Best of all that was only after one coat.

To be honest I didn’t expect this mascara to last. Today was the ultimate test. I spent 11 hours in a roasting childrens hospital ward. When I got home my mascara was still intact. No clumping. No flaking.

This is my no means an amazing mascara but I really like it! I think it’s probably more suitable to day time though as it wasn’t as buildable.

Have you tried this mascara?
