Mascara has played a large role in women’s lives for a very long time, in fact dating back to around 4000BC. Not only did it enhance lashes back then but it was thought to ward of evil spirits…I may just stick to that!
Throughout decades there were many different concoctions conjured up to create this eye ‘kohl’ varying from charcoal to crocodile stool, even including black soot and grease from lamps. It then in the 19th century, it progressed to cakes containing black dye and petroleum, activated by a wet wand (imagine applying that in rush on the tube!)
Lucky for us Helen Rubenstein came along in the 1950’s and created what we know as mascara in it’s one and only tube form. Nowadays mascara comes with different wands that promise to do new and exciting things to our lashes, so what and who do we trust when searching for the one possible thing we all apply on a daily basis?

I’ve tried out the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara, and it is pretty awesome! Now just so you know, I don’t always use the same mascara on shoots as I do on myself. Why you may ask? Well, I want something for myself that is quick that I don’t necessary need to build up because I don’t spend a lot of time on my own face. When you are working on set and you have to change looks its easier to use something that you can build on or remove easily.
For that reason I highly recommend Volume 1 Seconde, it curled my lashes without the use of eyelash curlers and added intense color and volume frighteningly fast; even being painless to take off even with a wipe. So if you are looking for high street mascara that does the do, I do recommend Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde over mascara cake!
