REVIEW: Bourjois 1 Volume Second Mascara
There's a few things I can always count on when taking a trip to boots; L'oreal lip products, Barry M Nail Paints and Bourjois Mascara. They just seem to nail each and every release and I continue to declare my love for their formulations and boy with 1 Volume Second they haven't let me down.
I can confidently say this is the closest in terms of results and time taken to get said results as my favourite mascara of all time (Benefit They're real if you're wondering) the main difference is the Bourjois mascara is nearly half the price.
It lengthens, curls and as it's name suggests volumises in one extremely quick coat, I was astonished (without trying to sound overdramatic) at how effective this mascara is. Confession time: for the past few months I had pretty much given up with wearing mascara to work (I know such a lazy cow) it was just an extra step I couldn't be bothered with both in the morning and at night in it's removal as the Benefit mascara is a bitch to get off. I have to say after popping my 1 volume second cherry I have worn mascara every day for work.
If I am being super critical the only negative I can see is that it does have a tendency to transfer onto my eye lid, I do have super oily lids so if you are more on the normal or dry side you shouldn't have this problem, I have invested in the waterproof formula so hopefully that should solve my issue. The flip side to this is that it is nice and quick to remove so if you love the Benefit mascara but dread the removal this mascara will be your new saviour.
Overall a brilliant mascara from Bourjois which will set you back £9.99 (Link), they are seriously pulling away from their competitors in terms of formulations; their fountains are fantastic, their lipsticks are brilliant in particular the Rouge Velvet Editions are phenomenal (Review) and I personally think are the best matte liquid lipsticks on the market and yet again proven themselves with this new mascara.
Bravo Bourjois you never let me down and thank you for pulling me out of my lazy makeup slump.
