17 Va Va Voom

 Now I am not sure what the french for Va Va Voom (Thierry Henry Va Va Voom Advert) but this Boots 17 Mascara has it. I'm not keen on the name or packaging as it all seems a bit dated, the name remind me of the advert and the packaging of the (rather horrible) Louis Vuitton Graffiti bag but all that aside I think its a great mascara.

The brush is big, actually very big and I am sure its not too everyone's taste, it makes applying the mascara quite difficult and messy but the final result is worth it. My lashes look thicker but partiuclarly longer and it really does give that false lash effect which I never believe a mascara can actually do. It is buildable and I would apply another coat or two if I was going out but for day time two coats adds enough Va Va Voom for me. Unlike some mascaras my lashes still looked like hair instead of looking crispy and then potentially flaking.

 If you like big brushes you'll love this mascara!
 I believe this is the new packaging but the mascara is available from Boots for £6.29

  2. This is one of my favourite 17 mascaras - it reminds me of something like Diorshow, but better.

  9. I have to agree on the packaging front it looks a bit well cheap and aimed at the younger audience. I am sure it is a great mascara but the packaging would make me walk past it, its not something I would be proud to get out of my makeup bag :(

  27. That really adds volume! Revlon had a similar brush.. can't remember the name of the mascara, but the formula wasn't very good.
