Fantastic volume with perfect separation and curl for lusher lashes, is what Boots claims about this Mascara. I managed to grab this through one of my friend who went for a short trip to UK.
Price: £11.50 for 7ml.
Can be purchased from Boots website HERE.
Or available on Ebay.com.

- 02 Brown-Black
- 03 Brown
I would be reviewing shade 03 Brown today
My Take on the Product:
The product comes in a sleek stylish sturdy black tube with applicator. The applicator bristles are nicely separated & in first instance it looked more of a lengthening mascara applicator to me. The formula is creamy & it looked a bit more on thicker side unlike usual drugstore mascaras.
The shade 03 Brown is a plain matte dark brown shade which matches well with my brown eyes giving them a very natural look. This didn’t make much difference to my lashes, not even in length as I thought in the first look & just imparts the colour to them. In terms of volume it was nil as per me. I couldn’t see any difference in the volume of my lashes. The name of the mascara is definitely misleading in this case. The brush also doesn’t picks up much product as a normal volumizing mascara brush would do.
But if you look at the brighter part of the product, that it looks very natural on my brown eyes & would recommend for females who don’t prefer dramatic eye makeup looks. The other plus point is that it doesn’t make my lashes stiff. The mascara is not waterproof & can be removed easily with the help of a makeup remover. There’s no clumping problem at all with this one as the applicator doesn’t picks up much product. You can also buy waterproof variant in this range. The main purpose for me to buy this one was the volume which it completely fails to deliver. But the mascara does neatly separate lashes without anu clumping & imparts nice colour to them.
The Good about Boots No7 Intense Volume Mascara:
- Doesn’t make my eyelashes stiff.
- The shade Brown looks very natural on eyes.
- Can be removed easily with a makeup remover.
The Not-so-Good about Boots No7 Intense Volume Mascara:
- Name is completely misleading for the mascara. From nowhere it adds volume to your lashes.
- Availability issues.
- At this price you expect your product to be waterproof.
- Just do nothing to my eye lashes other than imparting colour to them.
Boots No7 Intense Volume Mascara from nowhere seems to be a volumizing mascara. For me it just did nothing to my eye lashes in terms of length & volume. It just nicely separates eye lashes adding colour to them. So if you are looking for a volumizing mascara just don’t bother about this one. Also for the price tag it contains you expect your product to be atleast waterproof. Altogether a complete miss for me. The only good I can say about this is the shade which suits my brown eyes very well.
Overall Rating: 1/5
