If I could only pick one makeup item to have for the rest of my life then it would have to be a mascara. I LOVE it.
Mascara can thicken, define & lengthen your lashes.....It opens up tired eyes in the morning and adds sexy smokiness at night. A must have in every makeup bag. I pretty much buy every new drugstore mascara that comes on the market...some I love some I hate.....
I recently grabbed the Bourjois Volume 1 Second Mascara in Ultra Black on one of my many random spending sprees. However when I got home I realised I already had the original one...Booooo!!!! Waste of €12.99. As you can see from the above photo the brushes are exactly the same with the only difference being the Ultra Black has a lot darker pigment. Perfect for those who want the blackest of black lashes.
It has a large rubber head with lots of different sized bristles which ensures that every lash is coated from root to tip. One coat is perfect for day-time wear and two coats gives you amazing fanned out thick dark lashes. Because the formula is quite thick any further coats may cause your lashes to clump so just be careful.
As you can see from the above photo it does an amazing job of adding length and thickness to my lashes.
However I don't know what it is about this mascara but it won't be making it into my holy grail collection.....I think it's the brush that I just don't love. I mean it's grand but not one I reach for every day and one I won't be repurchasing. But if you love this type of brush then this is a great mascara. It doesn't budge once applied and adds instant volume and length making your eyes pop.
Have you tried it?
