[Review] Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof Mascara

Hello my awesomesauces!

I have another Bourjois product to review today, so let’s get to it! To be perfectly honest, I have never picked up a Bourjois mascara before, simply because I never noticed them while I was busy ogling their foundations, blushes and lipsticks.

And now I’m just here thinking how could I have not noticed such an eye-catching, sleek, futuristic ,and classy packaging like that?

This is the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Waterproof Mascara (and yes, second with an “e”, just cause the French are so sexy that way!)

Product Description: The product claims to have immediate coating upon application, a 16 our hold, and is easy to remove, despite being a waterproof mascara. It also claims to give lashes instant 360° volume while promising to be clump free.

The secret behind their claims?

Bourjois Mascara Brush Wand

The unique brush with spherical bristles to wrap every lash with perfect volume. Now that’s a first isn’t it? The focus of the formula is va va voom volume, which we be viewing in a bit 🙂

PS: The tube contains 12 ml of product, just in case you needed that info. 😀

Personal Thoughts: The mascara applies on rather smoothly, with no clumping, as promised. In terms of volume, as you can see, one layer of the mascara gives a slight volume, which looks very natural. No one will even know you have mascara on! But if you’re looking for BIG BIG lashes, you may want to try something else. I like this mascara for every day use, ans considering that its waterproof, it’s the kind that will last you all day.

I’ve used this for a maximum of 12 hours, and it held up just fine. I know it promises 16 hours, but really, when does one wear mascara for 16 hours? 🙂

Long story short, this is the kind of mascara that you will want to have in your makeup bag for daily use if you’re the kind of girl who likes natural looking makeup. The packaging looks super posh, that’s for one, and secondly, the mascara itself gives you that natural but better vibe. However,for  the price of MYR 49.90 is a bit of a spend I would say, since most mascaras locally usually retail from MYR20 -MYR40 generally, so I would ask you to give this a swatch first before purchasing it.
