Bourjois Look: Navy Lines, Defined Lashes & Plummy Lips

10/08/2014



Ever since I've tried the Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume mascara I've fallen in love with their mascara range. I also gave their eyeliner a try and I think I'll be rocking blue eyeliner until the end of the year as it's amazing. Let's start with the mascara about which I have been raving to everyone lately - it's the Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Definition mascara. The pink curvy packaging hides one of those rubbery wands. I haven't personally counted but it's stated that this mega wand contains 500 ultra-fine and supple bristles. It took a while for me to notice but there are also tiny bristles at the top of the brush for those ultra tiny lashes. I'm not always a fan of the rubbery mascara wands but this one is really good - it's on the big size but it's not massive so I don't make as many mistakes, smudging mascara around my eyes. I do reckon that women with smaller eyes could feel that the wand is overpowering but I personally haven't had any issues. Its formula is enriched with volume-boosting agents and black pearl extract for fully coated intense black, luminous lashes that for up to 16 hours - says the brand. I guess we're a but wary about this extensive claims but I wouldn't be surprised if this mascara could in fact last for 16h - it's super long lasting! I actually was under the impression that it's a waterproof one as I could only efficiently remove it with my oils (almond, hazelnut, grapeseed etc.). I think that's a major plus as not all mascaras can last throughout the entire day without any smudging or flaking but do have in mind that you need an oil or an oil-based make-up remover to gently clean your lashes. I have quite sensitive eyes and I can attest that this mascara is really gentle in the way that I never experienced any irritation. As for the results it provides - my skinny lashes hot a hint of volume and mostly definition - just as it's stated on the packaging. It's buildable but I prefer to use it as a part of my daytime make-up since it's a bit 'wet' at the beginning and later on it gets to that perfect consistency. It's pretty much clump free and a of a true black coloring.

Jos otkada sam isprobala Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume maskaru (kosta 19,90KM), naprosto sam se zaljubila u maskare ovog brenda. Takodjer sam isprobala i njihovu olovku za oci koja me inspirisala da dosta cesce nosim plavu boju na ocima a upravo to namjeravam ciniti do kraja ove godine. Zapocnimo sa maskarom o kojoj pricam svima posljednjih dana - rijec je o Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Definition maskari. Zgodjusno ruzicasto pakovanje krije jednu od onih gumiranih cetkica. Nisam licno izbrojala no brend tvrdi da se na ovoj cetkici nalazi cak 500 ultra finih i suptilnih dlacica/cekinja. Tek sam nakon nekog vremena primjetila da se i na vrhu cetkice nalaze sicusne dlacice koje su itekako korisne za isticanje i najsitnijih trepuski. Moram priznati da nisam uvijek sklona koristenju gumiranih cetkica kada su maskare u pitanju no ova cetkica mi je dosta dobra - nije malena, nekima bi mogla cak biti i velika no ne smatram je glomaznom i koristenje mi njene dimenzije ne otezavaju. Postoji mogucnost da zene sa dosta sitnim ocima mozda i budu smatrale cetkicu zahtjevnom za koristiti no u mom slucaju, zaista nemam prituzbi. Formulacija ove maskare je obogacena agensima za podsticanje voluminoznog izgleda trepavica i ekstrakt bisera kako bi pruzila intenzivno crno prekrivanje sve i jedne trepavice do cak 16h. Tako barem tvrdi brend i vjerujem da smo sve mi vec pomalo oprezne i skepticne po pitanju tih bombasticnih tvrdnji kao sto je trajnost od 16 no, iskreno, ne bih se iznenadila da je to u ovom slucaju istina! Ova maskara je uistinu izuzetne trajnosti i cak sam pod dojmom da se radi o vodootpornoj maskari posto su ulja (bademovo, ljesnikovo, sjemenke grozdja itd.) jedini nacin da je u potpunosti uklonim sa trepavica. Mislim da je ova impresivna trajnost veliki plus za ovu maskaru posto sam rijetko nailazila na takve maskare koje traju cijeli radni dan bez razmazivanja i bez rasipanja. Samo imajte na umu da vam je potrebno ulje ili skidac sminke na uljnoj bazi kako bi je u potpunosti uklonili. Moje oci su prilicno osjetljive i mogu reci kako je ova maskara njezna spram ociju u smislu da ih nikada nije iritirala. Po pitanju rezultata koje pruza - moje tanane trepuske su dobile dasak volumena i dosta primjetnu definiciju - rezultati se poklapaju sa tvrdnjama proizvoda. Sa ovom maskarom mozete postici i dramatican efekat ako je nanosite u slojevima no preferiram je koristiti u sklopu njeznijeg make-upa za dnevnu varijantu. Po otvaranju je blago 'mokra' no vremenom dolazi do one savrsene konzistencije. Ne stvaraju se grudvice i intenzivne je crne boje. 



After this almost waterproof mascara, I also have a true waterproof eyeliner which took me by storm and just as I thought I couldn't stand the blue eye trend anymore - it restored my faith! Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eye Pencil is like the best hybrid of Artdeco Soft Eye Liner and Avon SuperShock Gel eyeliners. This Bourjois range of eye pencils feature some pretty neons but I'm really glad I own this wearable navy blue shade Blue It Yourself (56). Now, why have I compared it to its Artdeco and Avon counterparts? It has the same creaminess and intensity of Avon's gel liners but it doesn't move around like Avon's offering does. On the other side, Artdeco eye pencils have a nice pigmentation but they can be a tad too dry for my eyes. Bourjois has covered all the bases just right - these eye pencils have a soft, easy to glide on formula. It's truly creamy like a gel liner would be and it's really well pigmented + it stays where you apply it, no unwanted smudging. It's silky formula can be smudged out for that smoky effect before it sets - after it does set, it's where you've applied it until you remove it with an oil or an oil-based cleanser. Another plus is that it wears well on my water eyes - even on the waterline! It lasts at least for 8h-10h which I find to be amazing and even though it's soft in consistency, this eye pencils sharpens beautifully. Shade Blue It Yourself is a pretty deep, navy blue pencil with a hint of silvery shimmer. That shimmer could be a dealbreaker for some but it hasn't irritated my oh-so sensitive eyes. I've paired the mascara and the eye pencil with one of my favorite autumnal lipsticks (Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in Violine Strass, reviewed here) to complete my Bourjois make-up look.

Nakon 'skoro' pa vodootporne maskare, biti ce rijeci o olovci za oci koja uistinu jeste vodootporna te mi je preokrenula misljenje bas nakon sto sam odlucila kako sam se zasitila plave boje na ocima. Bourjois Contour Clubbing vodootporna olovka za oci (kosta 10,60KM) je savrseni hibrid izmedju Artdeco Soft i Avon SuperShock Gel olovaka za oci. Bourjois linija ovih olovaka sadrzi i dosta neonskih nijansi no istinski sam zadovoljna nesto nosivijom nijansom tamno plave koju koristim (Blue It Yourself 56). Razlog zbog kojeg sam usporedila Bourjois sa Artdeco i Avon olovkama jeste zato sto smatram da cu vam upravo putem usporedbe na najbolji nacin docarati sta mozete ocekivati od ove olovke. Iste je kremaste teksture i intenzivne pigmentacije poput Avon gelastog ajlajnera u olovci no Bourjois se ne razmazuje van linije oka poput njega - za mene je tim detaljem Bourjois otklonio jedinu manu koja mi je smetala kod slicnih olovaka. Sa druge strane, Artdeco olovke su odlicne pigmentacije i ne razmazuju se ali ponekada mogu biti pomalo 'suhe' sto mi smeta ocima. Bourjois je u potpunosti rijesio sve probleme koje imaju navedene olovke i kreirao skoro pa idealnu olovku koja je izuzetno kremasta i fantasticne je pigmentacije no ostaje gdje ste je nanijele. Svilenkasta formula se sa lakocom nanosi i mozete je razmazati za smokey-eye efekat no nakon sto se osusi, ocekujte da se nece pomjeriti sve do trenutka kada je vi odlucite ukloniti sa ociju. Takodjer ce biti potrebno ulje ili uljani skidac sminke kakav je slucaj i sa prethodno spomenutom maskarom. Jos jedan plus za ovu olovku jeste sto odlicno prijanja i na unutarnji rub oka - rijetkost kada su u pitanju moje suzne oci. Trajnost za koju sam sigurna je u prosjeku 8h-10h sto je vise nego odlicno. Uprkos mekanoj teksturi, olovku je lagano siljiti. Nijansa Blue It Yourself je nocno plava, teget boja koja je prosarana sicusnim, srebrnkastim shimmerom. Taj shimmer, koliko god sisucan bio nekima vjerujem da nece biti pozeljan - meni nije pravio probleme iako su mi oci obicno osjetljive. Za jednostavan Bourjois look sam koristila maskaru i olovku koju sam za vas recenzirala u ovom postu + jedan od meni drazih jesenjih ruzeva (Bourjois Rouge Edition ruz u nijansi Violine Strass, recenziran ovdje).
