REVIEW: Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara

Mascaras are one of those products that I am always on the hunt for finding the best of the best and I hardly ever repurchase the same one. However since trying the Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara, I know I will be repurchasing this and I am kicking myself that I haven't tried it sooner. This mascara is aimed towards giving volume while giving clump free lashes.

The packaging looks very expensive with its reflective silver all over with small pops of orangey/red with the writing and around the cap. I find this so easy to hold which makes application even smoother and more effective. One of my massive loves about the packaging is that it clicks shut, with so many mascaras I end up wasting so many because I don't close them all the way and they end up drying out but with this one I won't be having that problem! 

The wand is made of straight plastic bristles and tiny spheres. I have found that plastic wands give much better length which is what I am always looking for in a mascara. Because of the little spheres throughout the wand, this is what makes the mascara not clump no matter how much mascara is applied. With the bristles being so straight, it really makes a difference in the length, I have never had such long lashes! 

This mascara is by far the best one I have tried and I have tried almost all of them! The formulation is on point, not too dry and not too wet. This mascara doesn't flake throughout the day nor does it transfer on to the skin which is what I dread with so many mascaras and always have to make sure I have cotton buds at the ready but I don't have to worry about that with this one! Not only does this mascara give my lashes incredible length, it gives volume and thickness too, it clicks all the boxes! I like to layer my mascara because I love really intense lashes and no matter how many coats of this mascara I applied, it didn't clump - woohoo! Even with several coats of mascara my lashes didn't feel heavy at all, they actually feel weightless.

You can see how long my lashes which I think is incredible! I didn't think any mascara could beat Benefit They're Real or Max Factor False Lash Effect but this mascara from Bourjous had knocked them all out of the park and become my favourite. This mascara retails for £10. 

Have you tried this mascara? What did you think of it?

  2. Wow, that looks pretty good. I'm currently using Mac's Haute and Naughty, but it's not very lengthening or volumising.

  3. I need to pick this up! I ordered the latest in beauty box as it had it in but it never arrived :( x
