Bourjois Ultra Black 1 Sec. Volume Mascara & Mega Liner

11/28/2014



You already knew I'm the biggest fan of the original 1 Volume Seconde mascara - heck, I even dubbed it 'the mascara of Summer 2014.' and that speaks volumes. Could this amazing formula be even further improved? And we've been playing with thin-line-making eyeliners - how would an extra large felt tip work? Well, these are all the questions I intend on answering as I'll lead you through reviews of two eye make-up bits. Let's start with the mascara as it easily fell into the beauty favorites post from last week. Bourjois Ultra Black 1 Seconde Volume Mascara comes in a visibly different packaging than its predecessor. I guess it's a seasonal thing as the chrome-inspired tube seemed 'cooling' whilst the elegant black & gold tube definitely makes me think of holidays which are, indeed, very close! In general, the brush is the same with the regular plastic and 'wraparound spherical' bristles mutually working on wrapping every lash in an extra black formula. The texture is amazing just like the previous one was - long-wearing (approx 8h or more), no flaking, no irritation, length & volume added whilst not compromising definition. The 'ultra black' claims however are so-so as I honestly cannot note any seriously visible difference between this guy and its predecessor. They both look very black to me and if there is a difference - than it must be a very subtle one.

Vec znate da sam najveci fan originalne 1 Volume Seconde maskare - cak sam je prozvala 'maskarom ljeta 2014.' sto zaista govori mnogo. Da li se vec fantasticna formulacija mogla uopste dodatno poboljsati? Do sada smo se zajedno igrale sa tusevima za oci koji imaju veoma fine cetkice - kako bi na testu prosao ekstra veliki marker tip tusa? Ovo su sve pitanja na koja namjeravam dati odgovore kroz recenzije dva make-up proizvoda za oci. Bourjois Ultra Black 1 Seconde Volume maskara (cca 24,90KM) dolazi u znatno drugacijem pakovanju u odnosu na prethodnicu. Pretpostavljam da se radi o prilagodjavanju sezonama posto je tubica boje kroma djelovala 'rashladjujuce' i prigodno uz ljetnu tematiku. Ipak, elegantna crno-zlatna tubica bolje pase uz praznike koji su nam se vec opasno priblizili! Uopsteno, cetkica je ista i radi se o kombinaciji plasticnih dlacica/cekinja i mini loptica koje naizmjenicno i zajednicki rade na tome da i najmanja trepuska bude umotana u intenzivno crnu maskaru. Tekstura je izvrsna, bas kao i kod prethodnice - dugotrajna je (cca 8h, nekada i vise), ne rasipa se, ne iritira osjetljive oci, pruza duljinu ali i volumen dok ne kompromitira razdvojenost/definiciju. No tvrdnje o 'esktra crnom' pigmentu su mi malo teze za potvrditi ili opovrgnuti posto ja zaista ne primjecujem razliku izmedju originalne i nove verzije. Obje maskare su iznimno crne u mojim ocima te ako postoji razlika - onda je sigurno izrazito suptilna. 


As for the Bourjois Ultra Black Mega Liner (01 | Dark Black) - this one truly does a serious blackness! The packaging is cute and I dig the neon orange cap paired with the black body. However, the real attraction here is the 'extra large' felt tip. I looks like a black marker/sharpie and it is quite specific. Due to its felt tip width, I wouldn't say that it's made for fine or thin lines - you could eventually use the sharpest tip for creating a nice and even ending to your flick but it's not really able to create thin lines. Its forte would be creating that classic black line along the upper lash line and strong, geometric shapes. It's very precise so even if you're a shaky hand owner, you'll probably be fine using it. Even if you do make a mistake, it's really easy to correct it. I like to use it on its side and lightly tap it along the lash line and then use the shape of the felt tip to create an outer shape. I think that those ultra black claims really live up as it doesn't get any blacker or saturated than this! It's extremely black, no grey or brown undertone - pure black pigment after just one swipe. Guess what? it's extremely long-lasting too! You can just feel when it dries, especially if you've covered a large eyelid area with it. After it sets (and it sets very fast), this guy won't budge at all. I had to use my hazelnut oil to remove it and was shocked at what an intense black trace it left on my cotton pads. A clear winner guys - sure gets my stamp of approval! 

Sto se tice Bourjois Ultra Black Mega Liner tusa za oci nijansaDark Black (cca 19,90KM) - ovdje se stvarno radi o izrazito crnom tusu! Pakovanje je simpaticno i dopada mi se kontrast neonski narandzastog cepa uz crno 'tijelo'. No, prava atrakcija ovog proizvoda je njegov 'ekstra veliki' vrh. Izgleda bas poput markera/flomastera i prilicno je specifican tus. Ne bih rekla da je namijenjen iscrtavanju tankih, finih linija. Eventualno mozete koristeci se najostrijim vrhom iscrtati lijep prijelaz, zavrsetak tj. vrh 'mackastog' oblika tusa na ocima no tanke linije nisu njegova specijalnost. On je stvoren za iscrtavanje one klasicne crne linije uz gornje trepavice ali i snazne, moderne geometrijske oblike poput onih koje smo vidjali na modnim pistama. Izuzetno je precizan tako da mislim da bi odgovarao i vlasnicama drhtavih ruku. Isto tako, ako i pogrijesite - veoma je lako ispraviti gresku. Volim koristiti ovaj tus tako sto ga polozim na stranu (znaci, duzinom vrha) uz trepavice i laganim tapkanjem kreiram ravnu liniju uz trepke. Mislim da tvrdnje o izrazito crnoj boji su itekako ispunjene jer ja ne vjerujem da crna moze biti tamnija, zasicenija od one koju ovaj tus pruza. Cisti crni pigment je u pitanju, bez sivog ili smedjeg podtona. Takodjer je ovaj tus nevjerovatno trajne formulacije. Naprosto osjetim kada se susi, posebno ako sam njim iscrtala malo vecu povrsinu kapka. Nakon sto se osusi (a susi se jako brzo), ne postoji sansa da ce se razmazati - on ostaje cvrsto na mjestu gdje ste ga nanijele! Ja ga uklanjam uljem ljesnika i uvijek se iznenadim koliko ustvari crn trag ostavlja na iskoristenim blaznicama. Ovo je malisan koji od mene dobija same desetke - izvrstan je!
