Bourjois has to be one of my favourite "high street" makeup brands. I always find that their products exude quality despite the very affordable price range. I also have a very special place in my heart for the brand as I had the chance to meet them during my first ever London Fashion Week experience!
Do you remember my fabulous nail designs and makeup by Bourjois that I sported after the Handpicked Future LFW event last year?!
Bourjois are always releasing amazing new products into the beauty world. Everything is packaged so beautifully and that is exactly the case with the new Volume 1 Seconde Mascara! How beautiful is this bottle? I love the sleek silver packaging that features a beautiful pop of colour... Very Summer appropriate!
The brush has straight and spherical bristles which help to coat every lash evenly. I was a bit unsure about this concept at first, thinking that maybe the spheres would over coat product onto the lashes but of course they do not and leave my lashes looking very nice and natural.
This is a buildable mascara. The images show my lashes with one coat which is typically what I stick to. I have used multiple coats before though which also work very well. I suggest allowing a little drying time between each but not too much as it could end up looking a little clumpy.
Overall this is a lovely mascara, the formulation is not too watery or dry making it of perfect consistancy. It also comes in waterproof and non waterproof. I have the non waterproofed version which lasts just like a waterproof mascara except it is not as hard to remove, giving you the best of both worlds! One thing I don't like about mascaras is fallout throughout the day... This, however, is not an issue with the Bourjois mascara making it an A+ product for me... Yay!
