L'Oreal Paris So Couture Mascara & Super Liner

10/23/2014



You've probably noticed that I'm having a Bourjois mascara phase but I'd say that Bourjois mascaras and every other I might have in my stash (I am counting seven pieces - yikes!) are my choice for daytime make-up. Whenever I'm going out, am doing a night-out make-up, perhaps I know I'll have my pictures taken or I simply want to feel and look special - this particular mascara is what I reach for. You know my lashes and you know that they are whimps (thin, long, non-detectable) but this mascara pumps them up like no other. I also have an eyeliner pen in store and if you do know me, you know that I don't wear eyeliner that often. It's just too much hassle for me if it was to be used on an everyday basis. But when I do have the time, I like them really black, precise and buildable. Well, look no further Selma as you've hit the jackpot with the 'couture' range, no less. L'Oreal Paris So Couture Mascara & So Couture Super Liner are a fab pair to achieve high-impact eye looks.

Vjerovatno ste primjetile da prolazim kroz fazu Bourjois maskara no rekla bih da su Bourjois ali i sve ostale maskare koje posjedujem dio postave za dnevnu sminku (trenutno ta kolekcija broji sedam maskara - sram me, priznajem). Ako planiram nocni izlazak a samim tim i nesto intenzivniji make-up, mozda znam da cu biti fotografisana ili jednostavno zelim da se osjecam i izgledam posebno lijepo - u tim situacijama se oslanjam na jednu posebnu maskaru. Upoznale ste moje trepavice koje su pravi slabici (jako tanke, duge, neprimjetne) ali maskara o kojoj cu vam pisati ih potpuno transformise u zavodnice. Takodjer sam pripremila i jedan tus za oci koji me dojmio. Ako ste me upoznale, znate da tus rijetko koristim kao dio svakodnevne sminke. Ako pak imam koju minutu viska, volim koristiti intenzivno crne, precizne tuseve koji mi dopustaju da kreiram look po svojoj volji. Selma, rekla sam sebi, ne moras vise traziti - uhvatila si dzekpot u sklopu fensi 'couture' linije kozmetike.  L'Oreal Paris So Couture Maskara i So Couture Super Liner tus za oci su fantastican dvojac uz pomocu kojeg se sa lakocom kreira fokus na ocima. 




L'Oreal Paris So Couture Volume Million Lashes Mascara is part of the Volume Million Lashes mascara range from the brand and it truly gets along with my lashes so well that I now have the desire to tes out some of the remaining offerings from L'Oreal. This mascara provides lashes in the form I love them the most -  sophisticated and clean volume. Packaged in a beautiful indigo/purple tube with gold accents - it won't make any vanity look anything but stunning. It has one of those plastic wands - what sets this plastic wand apart is a total of 408 mini bristles to capture each individual lash. These mini bristles aren't too rigid and their spiky ends are able to coat lashes from the roots with its silky formula (polymer core that allows the silk formula to transfer smoothly). Mascara doesn't flake, clump, smudge, move or transfer - when you have it on - it's on! A curious thing about this mascara is that it seems to be fragranced. I pick up a wonderful gourmand, chocolatey smell - kinda odd for a mascara to have a smell but this time, I can get on board as I love it. Wear is incredible - longevity is definitely its forte. It doesn't seem to be waterproof but it sure acts that way. I can only take it off with my hazelnut oil, rubbed in gently with the tips of my fingertips. Something to have in mind. Effect this mascara has I think is amazing. It fabulously lengthens, gives volume and holds a curl beautifully - with just one single coat. I seriously love how my lashes look with it - even the bottom lashes come to life when this baby gets into action. I cannot fault it - except the fact it does take an effort to remove. My favorite mascara of the past few months.

L'Oreal Paris So Couture Volume Million Lashes Maskara (cca 25KM, naknadno ce tacna cijena biti navedena) je dio kolekcije maskara pod nazivom Volume Million Lashes i toliko se dobro slaze sa mojim trepuskama da sada imam zelju istraziti ostatak L'Oreal ponude. Ona mi pruza upravo ono sto najvise volim - sofisticiran i 'cist' volumen. Upakovana u krasnu indigo/ljubicastu tubicu sa zlatnim detaljima - nece posramiti niti jedan kozmeticki stolic, naprotiv. Ova maskara ima plasticnu cetkicu a ono sto ovu cetkicu cini drugacijom od ostalih jeste cak 408 mini dlacica/cekinja koje su namijenjene obavijanju svake trepavice. Ove sicusne dlacice nisu previse krute a njihovi pomalo spicasti vrhovi cak i najmanje trepuske umotaju  u svilenkastu formulaciju (sadrzi srediste od polimera koje omogucava da se svilenkasta tekstura glatko prenosi). Maskara se ne grudva, ne rasipa, ne razmazuje, ne preslikava - kada je nanesete, tu je dok ne pozelite da je uklonite. Ono sto je neobicno u vezi nje jeste da ima miris. Ja detektujem divan, zaista divan gurmanski (pomalo cokoladan) miris. Moram priznati da je dosta neobicna ideja jednoj maskari dati miris ali posto ne iritira oci a i dopada mi se - ovaj put prihvatam i taj adut. Trajnost je izvanredna - ne bih rekla da se radi o vodootpornoj maskari ali upravo se tako ponasa. Jedino je mogu ukloniti uz pomoc ulja ljesnika, blago ga utrljavajuci medju trepavice cistim prstima. Mislim da je ovo nesto sto bi trebale imati na umu. Efekat koji ova maskara pruza je naprosto fantastican! Prekrasno produzuje trepavice ali im istovremeno pruza i volumen i trepavice ostaju cijeli dan uvijene - sve su ovo rezultati koje postizem samo jednim slojem maskare. Jako mi se dopada kako mi trepke izgledaju kada je koristim - cak i tanane donje trepavice 'ozive' uz njen carobni dodir. Ne mogu joj pronaci manu - osim zahtjevnog uklanjanja. Ovo je moj favorit tokom zadnjih par mjeseci.



L'Oreal Paris So Couture Super Liner - the rumour has it that it's the slimmest eyeliner from the brand, so far. And indeed, it does appear to be quite slim - the black and gold pen looks sleek and professional. It's the type of eyeliner which resembles a fine felt tip of a pen. I adore the fact that it's versatile enough to draw extremely thin lines but it's also able to draw thick, chunky ones - those I personally prefer. Its exceptionally delicate tip is just 0.03mm wide and if you previously held against such eyeliners due to their lack of flexibility - this one might be just for you. Why? Because it's not a regular 'marker' felt tip as it seems the tip to be made out of teensy, tiny strands. That's why this eyeliner can follow the curvature of the eye and not leave those unsightly tell tale marks of connecting the dots into one fluid line along the lashes. Its also super pigmented - true inky black is what it delivers. Longevity is also amazing as it doesn't flake off at random places. It is more easily removed compared to the So Couture mascara but just water probably wouldn't cut it. I love to pair it with the aforementioned mascara so I can create an illusion of much thicker lash line. Pair it with a bold lip and I'm sorted. I have demonstrated how mascara looks on me and how it looks paired with the eyeliner - which is not shimmery, I've placed some theBalma Mary Lou Manizer luminizer for special effect. Have you tried any of the So Couture products? Do they look like something you'd be into?

L'Oreal Paris So Couture Super Liner tus (cca 18KM, naknadno ce precizna cijena biti navedena) - prica se da je ovo najtanji tus koji je L'Oreal kreirao do sada. I zaista, djeluje nevjerovatno tanko i precizno dok je i pakovanje u crno-zlatnim tonovima dosta ugladjeno i elegantno. Ovdje je rijec o tusu za oci ciji vrh izgleda kao zasiljeni flomaster. Najdraza stvar vezana za ovaj tus jeste sto mi pruza onu slobodu u iscrtavanju linija koju sam spominjala na pocetku teksta. Njegov iznimno suptilan vrh debljine od samo 0.03mm omogucava kreiranje kako delikatnih, tako i debljih linija koje licno najvise volim (ali uz mogucnost finog 'cate eye' zavrsetka). Ukoliko ste u proslosti prezale od tuseva za oci koji nalikuju flomasteru - mislim da ce vam ovaj promijeniti misljenje. Zasto? Pa, zato sto se ustvari i ne radi o flomaster tusu - on samo tako izgleda. Njegov vrh je ustvari sacinjen od jako tankih i cvrsto uvezanih dlacica i radi se o tankom kistu. Zahvaljujuci fleksibilnim dlacicama (a ne krutom vrhu), ovaj tus sa lakocom prati oble linije oka. Takodjer je izvrsno pugmentiran - istinska, tinta crna boja je sto pruza. Trajnost je jako dobra i ne rasipa se uzduz iscrtane linije tokom nosenja. Lakse ga je ukloniti u odnosu na So Couture maskaru ali obicna voda ga nece razmazati. Volim ga kombinovati upravo sa ranije spomenutom maskarom jer zajedno kreiraju iluziju guste linije trepavica te ih spariti uz neki lijep, intenzivan ruz za usne - to je look koji inace volim. Na fotografijama koje mozete vidjeti ispod teksta, demonstrirala sam kako na trepuskama djeluje samostalno maskara ali i kako izgleda u kombinaciji sa tusem. I ukoliko vidite shimmer, on ne potice od tusa - utapkala sam malo theBalm Mary Lou Manizer iluminatora za poseban efekat. Da li ste mozda isprobale nesto od So Couture kozmetike? Da li ovi proizvodi izgledaju kao nesto sto bi voljele koristiti?
