I’m currently going through a bit of a make-up rebirth and I’ve become a bit obsessed with trying new products, hence the number of reviews as of late. I was determined to overhaul every part of my make-up routine, so it was with a heavy heart that I slid my believed Maybelline the Rocket to the back of the make-up draw and set off in search of something new. I’m ashamed to admit that I’d never tried a Bourjous mascara, despite it being one of my favourite make-up brands and so I decided that was the place to head.
The Boots I visited was pretty low on stock but I was immediately attracted to the tube of this mascara, I’m like a magpie and the silver and pink was just too pretty to ignore. I guess it could look quite childish but for me, it really works and I really like how sleek it looks and strangely it reminds me of a pen.
The brush is quite similar to my favourite, it’s thick and easy to use and I guess that’s why called it the “One Second Mascara”. I’m really clumsy at the best time of times and waving a thick wand with a black liquid near my eye after finishing my make-up for the day, is frankly an accident waiting to happen and hence I really like this brush. However I tend to want a lot from my mascara and the main reason I love the rocket is because it adds length, definition and thickness. It’s everything you would ever want it a pretty blue tube! So it was with high expectations that I give this a try. It made my lush look really thick and luscious but it didn’t really add any extra length, and so I was left wanting a little bit more.
The actual consistency is really lovely and it doesn’t flake or smudge and it lasts all day.
All in all, this is a really good mascara and I will undoubtedly use it but……
