Review: Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara

There are so many different mascaras out there that it can be a little overwhelming when searching for a new one. I've hunted high and low for a mascara that does everything I want it to do and I've never found that perfect one; therefore I like to change it up all the time!!

I strolled into Superdrug a couple of weeks ago looking for a new mascara and the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara immediately caught my eye with its silver tube and cute coral branding. I also loved the unique design of the brush. The plastic bristles go the whole way around the brush with small little balls placed in between these bristles to help the mascara coat every lash with no clumping and to build more volume and length.   

I usually like to apply two coats of mascara, but with this one, one coat creates so much length and volume I feel I don't need to apply a second, it lasts all day with no flaking or smudging too which is great. 

 I would highly recommend this product and I would 100% repurchase again and again as it has everything I would want in a mascara, and it's only £9.99 - BARGAIN :)

 Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 'Translucent'
NARS blusher in the colour 'Orgasm'

So I haven't posted in a few weeks as I've been on holiday, however I can assure you that I'm back in full swing and have lots of exciting posts lined up for you all :) 

I went to Las Vegas for a week with my boyfriend at the beginning of June and we had such an amazing time. The weather was ridiculously hot, about 42 degrees everyday and I can tell you, living in the UK we are definitely not used to that kind of crazy weather!
My boyfriend and I stayed at The Venetian hotel, which is absolutely amazing and I would 100% recommend it, even more so when I found out that they had a Sephora right outside (only fellow beauty bloggers will understand my excitement)!!
Over the week I ate my body weight in junk food everyday, which I thought I'd really enjoy, but after a few days I got so sick of it. Although, the huge stack of pancakes (pictured below) were absolutely amazing and we also went to a great all American buffet at the Mirage hotel on the last night, which I think I consumed more calories in one meal then I usually eat in a week, but it was so worth it!!
We went to see a show by Cirque Du Soleil called 'O' which is a water show. I cannot express how amazing this was!! Vegas definitely know how to put on a good show. The helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon was definitely my highlight of the trip, we landed in the Canyon and had a champagne lunch/dinner before we came back on the helicopter, the sun was setting and was dark once we got back to the Las Vegas strip, so we saw it all lit up in all its glory. The Grand Canyon was absolutely beautiful and a must see if your travelling to Vegas!

I thought I would share a few of my holiday snaps with you guys and here they are...   

I had such a lovely time with my boyfriend and I'm so happy I have found someone to share my adventures and travel the world with me.
I really hope you all enjoyed this post as it's a little different from my normal beauty ramblings.
See you in my next post guys :)
