Catrice Glamour Doll vs. Jet Lash Mascara

5/18/2015



My absolute favorite out of all mascaras I have ever tried is the L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes Mascara (adore that one!). The Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara follows close behind and that sums up my absolute faves - I love how they separate my lashes, add actual and visible volume, lengthen, don't clump nor flake. I like mascaras which are effective enough on their own and add definition to the eye single-handedly. I cannot stand flaky ones as my eyes are very sensitive and due to scratchy particles become red and irritated easily. I'm usually fond of the slightly 'wet' formulation rather than the 'dry' one and this is why results of this mascara face-off blew my mind. I've prepared Catrice Jet Lash vs. Glamour Doll Mascara comparison to kick off the Catrice Cosmetics Beauty Week Takeover and I think this post will yield interesting results. Catrice Jet Lash Speed Volume Mascara Ultra Black (11ml for 4,49€) comes in a chunky black tube and is specific for its v-shaped fibre brush, made to specifically and precisely capture each individual lash. It promises fast and dramatic volume, sensational length and a deep black result all with just one step. The aesthetic of the packaging I personally find to be attractive but it is a bit (too) big and definitely not travel-friendly. Now, this one doesn't have a strong scent, it is a 'dry' type of mascara and I thought it wouldn't suit me due to the dry-ish texture at all but I actually prefer it to the other one.

Kada su maskare u pitanju, moj apsolutni favorit (pod ovim mislim da je ovo najbolja maskara koju sam do sada isprobala) ubjedljivo je L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes maskara (jos uvijek me odusevljava!). Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde maskara je prati u stopu i otprilike njih dvije cine moj top odabir na ovom kozmetickom polju - jako mi se svidja kako razdvajaju trepavice, pruzaju volumen koji i sama primjetim, definiciju, produzuju trepke, ne grudvaju se i ne rasipaju. Najvise volim maskare koje samostalno pruzaju definiciju trepavicama i oku te bez problema mogu samo njih koristiti na ocima i biti zadovoljna rezultatima. Ono sto izbjegavam su maskare koje se rasipaju (tj. truse) posto sitne cestice koje upadaju oko zaista neprijatno grebu i za tren mi oci postaju crvene i iziritirane. Najvise naginjem ka 'mokroj' vrsti maskara dok me rijetko kada 'suha' maskara dojmila i upravo zbog ove stavke su me rezultati poredjenja ove dvije maskare (blago receno) iznenadili. Pripremila sam post usporedbe Catrice Jet Lash i Glamour Doll maskare kojom zapocinjem Beauty Week tokom kojeg Catrice Cosmetics preuzima Meteo beauty blog na 7 dana i cini mi se da ce rezultati mozda iznenaditi i vas. Catrice Jet Lash Speed Volume Ultra Black maskara (11ml za cca 9KM) dolazi upakovana u glomaznoj crnoj tubi i specificnost je cetkica u obliku slova 'v', napravljena sa ciljem da obuhvati i najmanju trepuskicu. Obecava dramatican volumen, izvrsno produljivanje i bogat crni pigment u samo jednom potezu. Sa estetske strane, pakovanje licno smatram atraktivnim no, ruku na srce, prilicno je veliko i ne bas pogodno za torbicu i/ili putovanja. Maskara nije agresivno parfimirana, 'suhe' je formulacije i iako sam mislila da mi zbog toga nece odgovarati - ispostavilo je da je moj favorit!



I would say that its Christmas tree-shaped brush is amazing at catching every single lash - it's one of the best ones for lower lashes I've ever tried. However, it simply doesn't add any drama to my lashes - it is buildable without looking spidery, it can clump just a tiny bit (nothing major) and it doesn't flake. It is black but not utterly black and it does give volume but in moderate amounts. It's more volumizing than lengthening. It hasn't thrown my favorites off the top but I think of it as a very good mascara - only if you enjoy a 'dry' texture, that is. Will let you know additionally for how long a tube actually lasts without drying out. Ingredients list can be found here (link). Catrice Glamour Doll Curl & Volume Mascara (10ml for €3,99) comes in a curved purple tube which lays comfortably in the hand and is admittedly attractive. It's made to create doll-like lashes by adding and holding a noticeable curl, great volume and intense black pigment. I prefer the ergonomy of this tube and even the curved wand, to be honest but first impressions failed me on this one, I'm afraid. I love great curled lashes and this one does impart a curl but doesn't hold it for long on my lashes. It's also of a very faint scent but the texture this time is 'wet' and creamy. Although the curved wand and the fibers of the mascara itself promise to grasp every lash, I simply don't get that effect on my lashes. I get minimal volume but it defines, separates and even lengthens decently. It's definitely the one for daytime looks as it gives off quite a soft, gentle effect. It is of a more intense pigment - something I've noticed during mascara removal - but it doesn't shine through as I get only thinnish layers and (as I've mentioned) only natural-looking volume. But what I really didn't like was the neverending flakiness. My eyes really didn't tolerate it well and this is the main reason why I prefer the Jet Lash mascara to this one. Ingredients list can be found here (link). Have you tried any of these?

Rekla bih da cetkica u obliku Bozicnog drvca zaista radi sjajan posao po pitanju obuhvacanja i onih najsitnijih trepavica u kutu oka - mozda je jedna od najboljih maskara za koristenje na donjem redu trepuski. Ipak, nije uspjela da napravi ocekivani dramatican efekat u mom slucaju - moguce je nanositi u vise slojeva a da ne nastanu 'paukove nogice' a pri tome se pojavljuje minimalna kolicina grudvica na kraju pojedine trepke (no nista znacajno). Takodjer se uopste ne trusi/rasipa. Prilicno je crna no ne i maksimalno crnog pigmenta  a pruza volumen u nekom srednjem intenzitetu. Mislim da vise pruza volumen nego sto produljuje trepavice. Nije uspjela zbaciti moja dva favorita sa trona ali na ovu maskaru gledam blagonaklono i stvarno me ugodno iznenadila. Vrijedi je isprobati - pogotovo ako inace preferirate 'suhe' maskare. Naknadno cu zabiljeziti koliko dugo traje prije nego se u potpunosti osusi. Listu sastojaka mozete pogledati ovdje (link). Catrice Glamour Doll Curl & Volume maskara (10ml za cca 8KM) dolazi u ljubicastoj tubi oblika pjescanog sata koji lijepo lezi u ruci i svakako da djeluje atraktivno. Ova maskara je kreirana da stvori efekat trepavica poput onih kakve imaju lutke te da uvije trepke, pruzi volumen i intenzivan crni pigment. Preferiram ergonomiju ove maskare posto je ugodnije drzati i koristiti. Takodjer preferiram i zakrivljenu cetkicu ali ovog puta me, nazalost, prvi dojam prevario. Jako volim uvijene trepavice a ova maskara mozda uspjeva da ih na pocetku uciniti takvim no taj efekat traje kratko. Takodjer je blage formulacije, bez narocitog mirisa no tekstura je ovog puta 'mokra' i kremasta. Iako oblik cetkice uz vlakna unutar same maskare treba da obgrli svaku trepavicu, to kod mene nije slucaj. Volumen je minimalno prisutan no svakako da uspjesno razdvaja, produzuje i definise trepavice. Preusmjerila bih je na dnevne make-up look-ove posto pruza dosta mekan i prirodan efekat. Intenzivnog je pigmenta - to sam primjetila tokom skidanja maskare - no nazalost, taj adut ne dolazi do izrazaja posto na mojim trepavicama ostaje kolicinski jako malo maskare. Ipak, ono zbog cega zaista nisam priklonjena ovoj maskari je cinjenica da se trusila  i iritirala mi oci. To je otprilike najvazniji razlog zbog kojeg preferiram Jet Lash maskaru. Listu sastojaka mozete pogledati ovdje (link). Zanima me da li ste ih vi isprobale - ako jeste, kakva su vasa iskustva?
