Review: Bourjois 1 Seconde mascara09:58
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?
