Bourjous Volume 1 Seconde Mascara / Review

Bourjous Volume 1 Seconde Mascara After

Here is a bold statement for ya – I have found my perfect drugstore mascara. You should know that I am rather picky with my lash companions and I have a substantial amount of unused tubes sitting in my stash. I am rarely impressed and the list of requirements is a wordy one. Nothing compares to the excitement of finding a brilliant high street gem that ticks all the boxes, so when I discovered this Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde (here) I was besotted. The results are mind-blowing. Oh my...

Let’s put it this way – even if your lashes point down to the floor, this beauty will trick people into thinking that you have falsies on. Yes, it is that good. Volume 1 Seconde gives gorgeous long, voluminous and luscious lashes in literally seconds. I have never had bigger, blacker and more fluttery lashes and I adore the way the mascara defines each hair. It gives huge amounts of volume and also holds curl like there is no tomorrow. Since adding this miracle worker to my everyday makeup routine my beloved Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler (here) is sitting on the bench, which has to tell you something. One coat of Volume 1 Seconde is enough if you are after more natural and subtle effect but since I favor the dramatic lash look I usually opt for two layers.

The somewhat weird looking wand and the ‘wraparound spherical bristles’ make the application process a breeze and they hug the lashes right from the root ensuring beautiful separation and the wide-eye look we all adore. The Volume 1 Seconde lives up to the claims of no clumps and there is no smudging involves as well. No panda-eyed look at the end of the day then. Brilliant. This baby doesn’t budge and stays put until you say so and it removes with a cotton pad or two of my beloved Bioderma with no dragging and rubbing. Can I think for something negative? Not really! It is tried, tested and well-loved, so if you’re on a hunt for a new mascara that won’t break the bank – look this way.

Have you tried the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara? Do you love it as much as I do?

Lots of love,
