Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume Mascara


Bourjois 1 seconde volume mascara, £9.99
available from mid May 2014

Next month Bourjois have an exciting new launch that promises to give your lashes impeccable volume from all angles and get them ready to flutter with up to 16 hours hold. The new 1 seconde volume mascara, available in intense black and intense black waterproof, boasts a smart new brush inspired by professional round hairbrushes to comb through each lash and create instant volume. The clever brush has alternate straight bristles and small wraparound spheres that envelopes the whole lash to coat and define without causing any clumping and giving you a super-glamorous flutter.

I firstly love the packaging of these new mascaras from Bourjois with the striking shiny chrome tube with the sorbet-coloured branding keeping it sweet and elegant – an image that Bourjois delivers so well with their beauty products. The formula is rich and intense and the brush really grabs each lash and coats them from root to tip. After one coat it gave me lovely length and separation for quite a subtle, light look but after a few more coats the volume can be built up giving you an intense, false lash effect, clump-free and easily removed also! Definitely a good little mascara to check out if you are after a new addition to your makeup bag with a purse-friendly price point to boot!

Will you be trying the 1 seconde volume mascara when it is released next month?

    Definitely! I'm always on the hunt for new mascaras and am really into the more 'defined' look nowadays. A few years ago I used to love my lashes as big and black as I could get them, but I've ditched the clump in favour of separated, more natural looking lashes. Will be picking up the non-waterproof version of this when I see it in Boots, for sure!

    Oh wow, this looks like it's really added length and volume I can't wait to try this, it looks like a cheaper alternative to the magnetic lash on Cult Beauty 🙂 x

    I'm looking for a new mascara – I am constantly disappointed! I;ve been eyeing up a clinique one but at £15 it's just a little too much.I might have to give this a whirl!
