REVIEW: Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara

Hey everyone, 
Today I thought I'd review a mascara that I've recently purchased...
Now, I don't usually buy Bourjois mascaras, nor do I particularly rate them generally but I'd heard a bit of hype around this one and really wanted to try it.

The packaging is nice and I do like the brush- on first impressions it looks like it'll make a difference to my lashes as well as combing them out to separate them.
The mascara claims to:
  • Have 16 hour hold (waterproof claims 24 hours)
  • Easy to remove
  • Both Spherical Bristles that 'perfectly wrap lashes for 360 volume',  and Straight Bristles to create 'clump free definition'

I decided to pick up the non-waterproof version in the colour 'ultra black' as you know I like my glam look!

Pros: It DEFINITELY adds volume to your lashes. Without question this has made my lashes the thickest they've looked in just one coat (although I add about 3, because I like it that way).
It also is easy to remove (a lot easier than Benefit's They're Real, and the consistency is quite similar).

Cons: Big con for me...this mascara didn't lengthen my lashes at all really. What I need in a mascara is lengthening and volumising combined, which in fairness this mascara never claimed. 

So basically, if you already have long lashes this mascara could be the absolute dream! 
I'm definitely going to purchase a lengthening mascara like Max Factor Masterpiece and then add a layer of this on top and hopefully achieve better results. I am a huge fan of using two different mascaras at once anyway!

Rating: 6/10
