Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara

8/28/2014



The most famous mascara of the Summer on this blog did not have its well deserved appearance - until now. Dubbed as 'the mascara of Summer '14' by yours truly, this amazing product was the only product which graced my lashes during the past few months. Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara (£9.99) is a firm favorite after the Maybelline's Colossal and Revelique's Define offerings. Shiny tube sure does look swish and it definitely caught my attention while I was walking by the Bourjois counter so, well done B.! What you need to know is that there are two versions of this mascara - the one with the neon orange band has the 'regular' formulation while the neon blue band means that you have the waterproof version. I have intended to purchase the waterproof one as well but it turned out that my regular mascara did the job perfectly. The most intriguing feature of this mascara is its wand. It has 'wraparound spherical bristles' which are inspired by professional round hairbrushes. These spheres envelope the entire lash to coat it, while the straight bristles define each lash without clumping. This is a claim I can attest is true and I'm really glad that this new brush design isn't a gimmick because I expect more than that from my fave drugstore brand. I was not left disappointed.

Najpopularnija maskara ove sezone na blogu nije imala priliku da vam se u potpunosti predstavi - sve do sada. Prozvala sam je 'maskarom ljeta '14' sa razlogom - ovo je bila jedina maskara koju sam nosila na trepavicama tokom posljednjih par mjeseci. Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde maskara (cca 25KM) je meni omiljena maskara nakon Maybelline Colossal i Revelique Define, koje su jedine pobrale pohvale na ovom blogu prije zvijezde ove recenzije. Sjajno, metalik pakovanje izgleda lijepo i privuklo mi je paznju kada sam prolazila pored Bourjois police u dm-u tako da, odlican posao glede dizajna B.! Ono sto bi trebalo znati u vezi ove maskare jeste da postoje dvije verzije - neonsko narandzasti prsten obiljezava 'standardnu' verziju dok je neonsko plavi prsten obiljezje vodootporne formulacije. Namjeravala sam kupiti i vodootpornu formulaciju ali ispostavilo se da mi uopste nije potrebna posto se i 'obicna' pokazala izvrsnom. Mozda najintrigantnija karakteristika koja krasi ovu maskaru jeste njena cetkica. Na njoj vidite 'omotane sferne cekinje' ciji je dizajn inspirisan profesionalnim cetkama za feniranje kose. Zadatak ovih sfera/kuglica jeste da premazu svaku trepavicu dok ravne dlacice pruzaju definiciju bez grudvica. Ova pomalo kompleksna tvrdnja je zaista istinita, sto mogu i sama da potvrdim. Skepticna sam kada su u pitanju pomalo bombasticne tvrdnje no stvarno mi je drago sto se ovaj put ne radi o marketinskom triku. Ipak nisam ostala razocarana od strane meni omiljenog drogerijskog brenda od kojeg uvijek imam visoka ocekivanja.


Besides having this interesting brush which works, Volume 1 Seconde also has a great formula - it gives lift, volume, thickness and separation all at the same time. My lashes are somewhat long but very thin and alsthough additional length is always welcome, I do look silly with Olive lashings. I need some build, some thickness and oomph! I have worn this mascara for every look I've created recently (Sleek, MAC, YSL 1, YSL 2 etc.). You'll notice that you can actually see my lashes and they're not too spidery. The texture of this mascara is awesome as it's just right - not too dry and not too wet. It remains that way for at least two months (with daily use) so you really do get the most of it. It also is suitable to use on lower lashes which is almost unheard of in my world. I believe it is perfect for low-maintenance gals such as myself as you only need a lick of this mascara (maybe a wash of eye shadow) and some lipstick to feel and look put together. What about those 1 second claims? Well, it may take a few more seconds in reality but volume indeed is achieved in a very short amount of time. Wear is excellent - an entire working day, without smudging or flaking. After two months you do notice slight clumping but that's a sign you need to go mascara shopping. It's fairly easy to remove, not the easiest to tell the truth. It's so long lasting that it acts like a waterproof mascara - that's why I stepped back from purchasing the official waterproof version. Sometimes I did need some help from my hazelnut/grapeseed oil. If you're on the market for a great and reliable drugstore mascara - Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde has my vote!

Osim neobicne cetkice, Volume 1 Seconde maskara takodjer ima i odlicnu teksturu koja istovremeno podize, pruza volumen i razdvaja trepavice. Moje trepuske su relativno duge no jako su tanke te, iako dodatno produzenje nece skoditi, izgledam prilicno smijesno sa tananim trepkama poput Olive. Najvise trazim debljinu, volumen koji ce uciniti da oci izgledaju ljepse. Ovu maskaru sam nosila u svim look-ovima koje sam kreirala i objavila na blogu u zadnje vrijeme (Sleek, MAC, YSL 1, YSL 2 itd.). Primijetiti cete da zaista vidite moje trepavice, ne umisljate da su tu i nisu isuvise slicne nogicama pauka. Tekstura zasluzuje jos jedan spomen posto je sjajna - nije previse suha ali nije ni previse vlazna. Tu zlatnu sredinu maskara odrzava tokom prva dva mjeseca (svakodnevnog) koristenja, tako da sam skoro pred sami kraj koristenja bila zadovoljna svojim primjerkom. Rekla bih kako je ova maskara idealna za sve vas koje ste slicne meni i vecinu vremena ne nosite previse sminke. Uz sloj-dva ove maskare (eventualno sloj sjene za oci) i ruz za usne, osjecati cete se ali i izgledati uredno bez previse truda. A sta je sa tvrdnjama o volumenu u roku od 1 sekunde? Pa, mozda ce nanosenje oduzeti koji sekund vise ali u svakom slucaju su rezultati skoro pa trenutni. Trajnost je izvrsna - cijeli radni dan bez rasipanja ili razmazivanja. Tek nakon dva mjeseca intenzivnog koristenja sam primjetila blago slijepljivanje trepavica sto je bio znak da je vrijeme za obnoviti zalihe ove maskare. Relativno je lako ukloniti iako, ruku na srce, nije najlaksa za skinuti sa trepavica. Toliko se dobro drzi na trepuskama da sam imala dojam kako se radi o vodootpornoj maskari - bas zato sam odustala od kupovine i zvanicno vodootporne verzije. Nekada mi je za potpuno uklanjanje trebala pomoc ljesnikovog ili ulja sjemenki grozdja. Ukoliko zelite nabaviti stvarno odlicnu, kvalitetnu i pouzdanu maskaru drogerijskog ranga i cijena vam nije problem -  Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde ima moj glas!
