Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof Mascara – Review

8852444119070

I’ll cut to the chase, this mascara is everything I’ve ever wanted and more- I’ll let the pictures below do the talking! My friend recommended this to me and I needed a new mascara so I rushed to Superdrug where picked this up for £9.99.

First lets talk about the brush. This brush is unlike anything I’ve seen before. It’s a plastic wand which is quite thin and straight. It has two layers of “bristles” on it. One layer of straight spikey bristles which separate your lashes and prevents clumping and a second layer with spherical balls on the end which coat the lashes adding 360 degree volume and curl.

Can ya see the ballz!?

The formula for this mascara is quite wet which I prefer because it allows you some time to play time with your lashes. It also allows you to apply two coats with no clumps, which is great because I HATE spidery lashes with a passion. The colour is a true jet black and doesn’t dry to that matte black which some mascaras do.

The amazing brush and awesome formula results in thick, fanned out lashes. I already have long lashes so don’t need lengthening but this adds a curl to my lashes which held OK during the day. My lashes still feel soft to touch when I wear this mascara.

I have very oily lids to the point where most waterproof mascaras smudge on me but this didn’t budge over a period of 12 hours. I even walked through the rain! In terms of removal, it peels off the lashes nicely with an oil-based make-up remover/wipe (no smudging) or a few minutes in a hot shower will allow you to gently peel this off your lashes.

I’ve never had a mascara reach holy grail status but all changed with this product. If you have long lashes but need some volume, separation and curl go try it, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

  1. This looks great! I’ve heard that Bourjois mascaras are generally good and I was trying to decide between a few to get and this was one of them. I eventually got the Twist Up The Volume one but after reading your review I feel like I should have gotten this instead! ><
