The ‘Mascara Fatigue’ seems to thankfully have lifted as now I have a couple of mascaras I am digging, including this bad boy from Bourjois. I have trying to review this for about a month now, but each picture I took hasn’t really done it justice, so instead I decided the way forward was to include some creepy, close-up, eye collages for your viewing pleasure…
The Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara is an impressive product that delivers high levels of both volume and definition, giving lashes that spiky, high-impact finish. I reviewed the original version of this mascara here, however I much, *much* prefer this Ultra Black version which is a real ‘wow’ mascara that delivers on it’s volumising promise.
I don’t fully get the whole 1 second/e element, but it’s worth noting that there’s nothing in my life that I’ve managed to achieve in 1 second, so I might not be the best reviewer for such a task. The formula in this mascara is very buildable, possibly one of the most buildable I’ve come across, which allows for plenty of oomph to be added to lashes if you’re going for glam. This is also a great choice with liner as it’s strong enough to hold it’s own against a very black line.
I noticed in my review of the original mascara that I had some issues with smudging. That doesn’t seem to the case with this Ultra Black version, which gives intense colour with a slightly glossy finish, but no smudgies.
Bourjois have some very exciting new launches coming up soon, but it’s always nice to revisit existing products as it’s quite easy to forget how great some products are once the excitement has died down. If you’re in the market for a new mascara that gives great volume, definition and comes off easily with a good cleansing oil, you can’t go wrong with the new Ultra Black version of the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara which costs just under a tenner here – link.
This looks fab, looking for a new mascara as well! x
It’s really fab, well worth trying xx
I love the original- I got it in a beauty box, another product I wouldn’t have bought myself but am really pleased with. When I eventually wade through my mascara stash (15 unopened at last count) I might give this a try.
I do love my high end products but mascara seems to be something that drugstore brands do do well I can use those & save my extra pennies for the products that are worth an upgrade!!
Have a fab weekend lovely xx
I’m the worst for mascaras as I’m so fussy, but this one is awesome; I’d say it’s much better than the original. I think when it comes to mascaras you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a good one (I say as I consider cracking open a Chanel one) as long as you replace them regularly and don’t let them dry out; there’s that magic two week window after opening a new mascara when you get a couple of months of amazingness 😉 xx
Ps what have you got on your lips in the pic above? Really looks fab on you xx
Thanks lovely! It’s a Suqqu one – I don’t have the name to hand but it’s part of their SS15 line-up which I’ll be posting about this week xx
