Bourjois Push Up Mascara + Sourcil Eye Brow Pencil

The latest and for some the greatest Bourjois mascara has hit the drugstores and I have had the pleasure to try it in the first lines. The Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara comes in a beautiful, almost elegant packaging. I have noted this entire perspex design among mascaras is becoming some sort of trend (remember the Lancome Grandiose mascara?). Bourjois Push Up mascara has found inspiration in, believe it or not – lingerie. It’s envisioned that the Push Up mascara has the same effect on our eyelashes as push up lingerie would on enhancing our curves. There’s also a move away from “fat” lashes – volume without the bulk and you should be able to get an uplifted, spiky look from this mascara which also claims to last 16 hours. The brush is supposedly equipped with 15 reservoirs cleverly distributed between the bristles. This arrangement provides maximum load over the entire length of the lash, from root to tip in a single gesture. To me, this mascara has a rather basic Christmas tree shape (tad spiky at the edges). Baby doll looks should be achieved with it as applying more layers should be easy due to its ultra-black, silky formula.

Najnovija, a vjerujem nekima i omiljena, Bourjois maskara se nedavno pojavila u drogerijama te sam medju prvima imala priliku da testiram sve njene cari. Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up maskara (cca 16KM, naknadno ce precizna cijena biti unesena) nam dolazi u krasnom, skoro pa elegantnom pakovanju. Primjetila sam da dizajn sa prozirnim akrilskim dijelom postaje trend u svijetu maskara (sjecate se Lancome Gradniose maskare?). Bourjois Push Up maskara je za inspiraciju imala dosta neobicnu temu – donji ves. Zamisljena je da pruza isti efekat na nasim trepavicama kakav ima push up donji ves na nase obline. Takodjer je primjetno odstupanje od “debelih” trepavica te se poslo u smjeru pruzanja podignutih trepuski, pomalo siljastih krajeva uz obecanje da maskara traje punih 16h. Cetkica je navodno opremljena sa 15 rezervoara koji su zgodno rasporedjeni izmedju cekinja/dlacica. Njihova pozicija omogucava maksimalnu raspodjelu teksture maskare, cijelom duzinom trepavica. Meni djeluje da cetkica ima dosta jednostavan oblik Bozicnog drvca (blago zasiljenih krajeva). Baby doll ‘look’ bi se sa lakocom mogao kreirati ovom maskarom, te u vise slojeva zahvaljujuci ultra crnoj, svilenkastoj formulaciji.

I’d say that the texture is a bit viscose, a bit elastic. Personally, I’m not as much into the baby doll, Twiggy eyelash look. I prefer clean defined eyelashes with a hint of volume and I love ’em really black. This mascara gives that perfect natural look with just one coat. I know that it doesn’t look as dramatic as some women prefer but I don’t think my eyes look appealing with that spiky, ‘miss manga’ aesthetic. I absolutely adore that it’s of a true black color, it doesn’t stiffen my lashes – it really keeps them flexible during wear. Longevity is excellent as it withstands more than 10h on me (haven’t really worn it up to 16h!). It doesn’t smudge or flake, it doesn’t irritate sensitive eyes either (it has the most neutral smell to it). Another bonus is that it’s not a pain in the bum to remove – an ordinary micellar water solution is all you need. The only gripe I have is that I wasn’t as comfortable piling it on as my lashes are too thin to retain the ‘clean’ effect in a baby doll look. That’s why I’m sporting rather natural lashes in the form of a single coat. I think that the curl is noticeable and that does become more evident as you layer it up – it;s just a matter of preference as to in how many layers you want to apply this mascara.

Moja opazanja su takva da je tekstura ove maskare dosta viskozna, pomalo elasticna cak. Spomenuti cu kako nisam ljibiteljica baby doll izgleda trepavica koji asocira na Twiggy trepke. Vise volim cistu definiciju i malo volumena a narocito cijenim intenzivno crnu boju. Ova maskara pruza jako lijep prirodan efekat zahvaljujuci samo jednom sloju. Vjerujem da neke zene preferiraju dramaticniji izgled no naprosto se taj siljasti, ‘miss manga’ look ne uklapa sa mojim licnim stilom – zato sam se odlucila za nesto prirodniju prezentaciju. Vi svakako mozete ovom maskarom kreirati dosta upecatljiviji look upravo zbog specificne formulacije. Dopada mi se sto nakon susenja ova maskara ne cini trepavice krutima vec ostaju fleksibilne i savitljive. Trajnost je izvrsna, licno garantujem za 10h nosenja jer nisam imala priliku da je nosim 16h. Ne razmazuje se i ne rasipa se te definitivno ne iritira osjetljive oci. Dodatni plus ce dobiti od mene zbog toga sto je relativno lagano ukloniti na kraju dana – obicna micelarna otopina ce biti dovoljna. Vjerujem kako cete vidjeti da uvija trepavice i bez uvijaca (koji zaista nisam koristila na fotkama) a taj efekat je dodatno primjetan uz vise slojeva.

Bourjois Sourcil Précision Eye Brow Pencil is a really good one as well. I prefer brows to be as natural as they can get and I only aim to fill the gaps and to slightly give shape. I’ve learned that slightly waxy eyebrow pencils suit me best as those dry ones (too similar to regular eye pencils) are a no-no for me. Luckily, Sourcil Précision caters to my taste as it contains carnauba wax which adheres to both – skin and existing lashes. That makes it easier to blend the pencil with the natural brow and to make it stay for longer. On the cap we have a small brush which I think every eyebrow pencil should have. It combs through well whilst not taking away freshly deposited color. As for the color, I have the shade 08 Brun/Brunette which is a perfect match for my dark brown strands. Another no-no would be an orangey/red brown which clashes with my natural coloring but this one fits perfectly. I would recommend a lick of a clear brow gel after applying it, just to be extra sure brows won’t move. A lovely eye(brow) duo, all in all – my take is on the natural side but you could add more drama if you wish.

Bourjois Sourcil Précision olovka za obrve (cca 12KM, naknadno ce precizna cijena biti unesena) je takodjer divan ulov. Volim sto prirodniji izgled obrva koji jesam postigla ovom olovkom i zbog toga cu je zadrzati u dnevnoj make-up rotaciji. Obicno samo popunim praznine i blago definisem oblik tj. luk obrva. Naucila sam tokom isprobavanja razlicitih olovaka u ovu svrhu da preferiram one sa voskastom teksturom. Mnogo mi bolje odgovaraju u odnosu na pomalo suhe olovke koje me vise asociraju na obicne olovke za oci. Sourcil Précision kao da je u potpunosti krojena prema mojim zeljama jer sadrzi karnauba vosak koji prijanja na kozu ali i postojece dlacice. To omogucava da se trag olovke lakse stopi sa postojecim obrvama ali i trajnost je dosta bolja. Na cepu olovke se nalazi prakticna cetkica koja lijepo ceslja obrve, ne uklanjajuci olovku koju smo tek nanijeli. Po pitanju same boje, imam nijansu 08 Brun/Brunette  koja se savrseno slaze sa mojim tamno smedjim obrvama. Nesto sto mi je jako bitno jeste da olovke za obrve ne sadrze narandzasto/crveni podton koji djeluje neprirodno na meni – Bourjois je kreirao dosta lijepu, uvjerljivu nijansu za tamnije obrve. Preporucila bih jos samo sloj prozirnog gela za obrve kako se dlacice ne bi pomjerale. Zaista divan dvojac za definiciju kako trepavica, tako i obrva. Pristupila sam im na nesto suptilniji nacin no ukoliko volite dramatican izgled – ogranicenja ne postoje.
