Review: Bourjois 1 Seconde mascara

09:58

Hey Beauties!

Today's product did not impress me as it should. I wanted a new mascara and bought Bourjois 1 Seconde mascara, but it left me sort of cold.


The mascara has a nice silver shiny packaging with an orange writing. I chose the non waterproof version, because I never use waterproof mascaras. The shade is called Black. There's 12 ml of mascara and costs 13.99€ (but I got it for 10.49€). 


It has a rather "innovative" brush. All the companies seem to be coming out with some sort of different and new and innovative mascara brushes, but I think most of those innovations are just crap. This brush has small balls in between "regular" brush hairs, which are actually silicone hairs. I always prefer the so called plastic or silicone brushes, because I think they get nicely in between the lashes. Those balls are supposed to hug every lash and give it a volume. In my opinion they are the cause of clumpy lashes.


The hairs are in a star position if you look at the brush from upside down. There's always too much product on the brush. I wipe off almost all of it, before I apply it.


Here you can see how it looks like before and after. It makes the lashes very thick, but also very sparse or clumpy looking. I am not a fan of such look at all. I like my lashes to be separated, therefore giving my lashes an overall volume. Despite using this mascara for over two months, I still don't like it. I've come back to my trusty L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes.




I also don't understand the 1 second thing. Trust me, I've tried and you can't put on mascara in one second, nor does it give you volume in one second. I just don't like this mascara. Shame really, because I've had other Bourjois mascaras and liked most of them.

Do you have this mascara and  how do you like it?

  1. Imam vodoodporno verzijo in se mi ne zdi tako slaba, ni pa nič posebnega. Meni lepo definira trepalnice in ne povzroča grudic, ampak mi pa trepalnic ne drži zavihanih tako kot bi mogla.

    1. No jaz sem verjetno preveč pričakovala od nje:). Super, da ti vsaj ne dela grudic. Je pa res da bi vodoodporna morala boljše držati zavihanost, ampak očitno res ni dovolj dobra formula.

  2. Bourjois maskar sicer še nisem nikoli kupila, ampak ta je bila na moji WL zaradi samega izgleda in krtačke, ker tako kot ti obožujem silikonske. Ampak glede na after fotko se mi zdi, da za ta denar lahko dobiš bolj kvalitetno maskaro, tako da si mi prišparala 14€ :)

    1. Se strinjam s tabo, ta verjetno ni vredna denarja. Vsaj za moje želje ne:). Če te zanimajo Bourjois maskare, meni je bila zelo všeč Volume Glamour Max definition - cela je roza. Ta ima tudi silikonsko krtačko, bolj debelo, ampak lepo ločuje in daje volumen. Drugače pa sem pred to zelo dolgo uporabljala Twist Up The Volume, ki mi je tudi zelo všeč. Mogoče včasih preveč grudasta, ampak dobro, da ima dve krtački, si lahko s tisto gosto lepo razčešeš trepalnice.:)

  3. Ojej, me je kar strah odpret mojo. čeprav me načeloma ne motijo malo zlepljene trepalnice, boljše kot premalo :D

    1. Če te ne motijo, ti bo verjetno všeč. Sploh če nimaš preveč redkih trepalnic. Moje potem izgledajo tako kot da imam samo 6 kupčkov trepalnic, zato mi ni všeč:).

  4. Jaz vedno priporočam tisto "ščetko" za trepalnice, da jih ločiš :) Meni zelo pomaga tudi pri maskarah, ki mi ne povzročajo grudic, ker se tu in tam zgodi, da mi ni všeč kako moje trepalnice stojijo :P .. Drugač pa ja, L'orealova maskara še vedno zmaga :)

    1. Imam tisti mini glavniček za trepalnice, pa se mi zdi, da ima še ta preredke ščetine, da bi mi ločila te grude trepalnic:). Je pa res, da večkrat pomaga, sploh če pomotoma nanesem preveč maskare:). L'Orealova maskara je res super!:D

  5. Sem že študirala, da bi jo preizkusila, ker sem slišala ene par pohval, ampak se ji bom raje izognila. Itak sem že našla popolno maskaro zame. :D
