Bourjois Fast & Perfect Mascara With Rotating Brush Review


I remember seeing a rotating hairbrush in one of those tv commercials (Telebrands?). It roll and rolls and makes hair look super sleek. I used to get so tempted to buy it before I got my hair permanently straightened. This mascara reminds me of that hairbrush, which I hear isn't great.

Getting back to topic, it's time to tell you what I think about Bourjois Volume Fast & Perfect Mascara with the much-talked-about rotating brush, which rotates 360° and claims to coat lashes from root to tip with no overloading & give false lash volume effect in 30 seconds.

See how the length of the wand handle is slightly longer than mascara tube? The packaging is quite solid (read: heavier than other mascaras)

About the ON & OFF Button:
You push button to one ON to turn brush in one direction & the other ON in the opposite direction. If you twist & open the top, you'll see a silver button battery, that's bigger than a regular watch battery.

How To Use:
When you're doing your right eye and holding brush with your right hand, push button to ON below the OFF. Basically, the wand has to rotate anti-clockwise.
  • Step 1 - To coat your upper lashes, push the button to the left and the brush will rotate anti-clockwise.
  • Step 2 - To coat your bottom lashes, push the button to the right and the brush will rotate clockwise. Gently apply the mascara from the roots to the tips of the eye lashes, in a slow, gentle movement.


The Good: The rotating brush helps lift my lashes from the roots & it coats lashes evenly without having to dip the brush into the tube more than once or twice, it separates my lashes, not clumpy, doesn't smudge on the lids while being applied, rotating brush works well on lower lashes too, formula doesn't irritate my eyes, easy to wash off.

The Bad: It is not waterproof [but water-resistant], the formula is on the thicker side so it might dry quickly.


I can't comment on the battery life right now, but the mascara and the rotating wand? WOW... Super Hit! I'm hooked to this one. I don't know if I can go back to a still (boring) mascara now! If you liked the Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara (with vibrating wand), then this is it's better/more hard- working/perfectionist sister friend rival.

Price ~ Rs.825. Just right.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
