Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque

I think there isn't a woman out there who hasn't been intrigued by the now oh-so-famous Rouge Velvets from Bourjois (check out this fiery shade!). The intensity, the matte finish – the fantabulous pigmentation! These, my friend, are the best opaque lippies any drugstore brand has offered to us so far. Period. No discussion. I've ranked three shades so far but I do intend on broadening my collection (let us not kid ourselves, I probably won't stop until I have them all!) so you can only imagine that my interest was awaken by the introduction of a different lippie take from the brand – but in a very similar packaging. Available in a total of 8 mouth-watering juicy shades, from soft nudes to statement brights, Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque (approx 14€ per piece) range takes inspiration from the water but doesn't compromise the pigment. Enriched with the concentrated extract Nymphéa for a moisturizing finish, it offers long-lasting hydration and a brilliant wet look! A true shimmering effect, as if the lips were bathed in a waterfall but not evoking the lip gloss because there is no sticky factor. Packaging is the recognisable Bourjois liquid lippie rectangle (as with the Rouge Velvets) but the caps are metallic-colored and the fonts are shiny. I own the ever-so beautiful shade 02 Rosé On The Rocks which is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ (MLBB) color! It may very well be the most discreet shade of the collection – a soft dusty pink which changes from discrete (with one coat) to sumptuous (the second coat adds depth). I like it a lot!

Mislim da ne postoji zena koju sada vec popularni Rouge Velvet tecni ruzevi od Bourjois-a (pogledajte ovu vatrenu nijansu!) nisu zaintrigirali. Intenzitet, mat finish – nevjerovatna pigmentacija! To bi, drage moje, bili najbolji tecni ruzevi drogerijskog ranga koje sam do sada imala priliku isprobati posto pruzaju prekrivnost kakva se rijetko kada vidja. Tacka. Nema diskusije. Uspjela sam sakupiti tri nijanse no namjeravam naknadno prosiriti svoju kolekciju (bojim se da necu prestati dok sve dostupne nijanse ne budu moje!). Mozete zamisliti koliko me zainteresovala vijest da brend lasira novu liniju ruzeva, potpuno drugacijih karakteristika ali u prepoznatljivom pakovanju. Dostupno je ukupno 8 socnih nijansi – od mekanih i usnama slicnih pa do jarkih boja. Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque (cca 25KM) linija ruzeva za usne u potpunosti crpi inspiraciju iz vode, obecavajuci dugotrajnu hidrataciju i briljantni ‘mokri’ efekat! Formulacija obogacena ekstraktom Nymphéa lotosa pruza intenzivnu hidrataciju. Zaista se radi o staklastom odsjaju u kojem se usne kupaju na svjetlosti no uopste nema slicnosti sa sjajilima za usne – samim time ni sa ljepljivom teksturom. Pakovanje je sada vec prepoznatljiva pravougaona tubica kakvu smo vidjeli kod Rouge Velvets varijante, sa time da su cepovi metalik boje (kao i ukrasna slova na ambalazi). Posjedujem prekrasnu 02 Rosé On The Rocks nijansu koja spada u boje koje su slicne prirodnoj boji usana ali ih dodatno uljepsavaju. Veoma je moguce da se radi o najdiskretnijoj nijansi iz ponude – rijec je o puderasto ruzicastoj koja se transformise iz diskretnog daska ruzicaste boje (jedan sloj) do zavodljive boje mesa (uz dva sloja). Jako mi se dopada!

I will say that this is one of those love it or hate it products. If you preferred the Rouge Velvets due to their opaqueness, intensity and longevity along with their matte finish – you probably won't ditch them for Aqua Laques. However, if you've thought that Rouge Velvets were too drying on your lips – these will be perfect for you! Also, if you simply couldn't bare the scent of Rouge Velvets, you'll be glad to hear that Aqua Laques have a different scent – very light and fruity. Aqua Laques are deeply hydrating and upon application they do deliver a very, very different texture and experience than anything I've tried before. It's very cooling (not mint-related at all!), refreshing, light and almost jelly-like. It's a texture which is easily distributed with the simplest rub motion of the lips and it's spectacularly hydrating! There's no heavy feeling, no cakey-related thickness or stickiness. It's truly a unique formulation which will probably be most useful during warm summer days as it delivers an instant relief for dry, chapped, thirsty lips. It doesn't feel like a gloss – more as a quite pigmented hydrating lip balm and it really is very light reflective at first – not oily looking. After half an hour, the shine tones down and you're left with a subtle tint. It completely wears off after 2h. It's perfect for softer make-up looks and I think that even the red shades would look amazing. But as I said – these are completely different from the matte Bourjois liquid lippies. They are at two completely opposite sides of the spectrum and it truly all depends on your preference if you'd like them or not. Let me know if you've tried them so far?

Odmah cu naglasiti da ce ovaj ruz biti nesto sto cete odmah zavoljeti ili odbaciti. Ukoliko ste velika ljubiteljica Rouge Velvets ruzeva prvenstveno zbog gustoce, prekrivnosti, pigmentacije i trajnosti zahvaljujuci mat finisu – prilicno sam sigurna da cete im ostati vjerne i necete pokleknuti pred Aqua Laque novitetima. Ipak, ako vam je kod Rouge Velvets ruzeva upravo mat formulacija previse isusivala usne i to vam je smetalo – ovi noviteti su upravo za vas! Takodjer mislim da, ako vam je smetao jak miris kod Rouge Velvet linije – biti ce vam drago cuti da ce vam se svjeze, vockaste arome Aqua Laque ruzeva sigurno mnogo vise dopasti. Aqua Laque ruzevi su izrazito hidratantni i po nanosenju ostavljaju osjecaj koji je jako, jako drugaciji od bilo cega sto sam isprobala do sada. Ovi ruzevi dosta hlade usne (uopste nemaju veze sa mentom), osvjezavaju, jako su lagani i gotovo pa hibrid zelea i vode. Ovakva tekstura je izrazito maziva i nezahtjevna – dovoljno je samo blago protrljati usne da bi se boja rasporedila. Uopste ne osjecam tezinu, bilo kakvu gustocu, masnocu niti ljepljivost. Zaista se radi o jednoj unikatnoj teksturi koja ce mozda najvise da korisnicama bude od koristi i da najvise pruzi olaksanje suhim, ispucalim usnama tokom vrucih ljetnih dana. Ne asocira me na sjajilo za usne – kao da nosim nevjerovatno hidratantan balzam u boji – ali opet, nije balzamast (kako drugacije opisati ovu neobicnu formulaciju?!). Jako lijepo se svjetlost reflektuje na usnama no one ne izgledaju masno a sjaj se ublazi nakon cca pola sata nosenja i ostaje njezna boja. Nakon 2h potpuno nestaje sa usana. Ovaj ruz je idealan kao nadopuna njeznijem make-upu a vjerujem da bi cak i crvene nijanse lijepo izgledale. No kako sam i ranije spomenula – Rouge Velvet i Aqua Laque ruzevi su potpune suprotnosti! Nalaze se na dva suprotna kraja spektra i nemaju nista zajednicko. Da li ce vam se novitet dopasti ovisi najvise o vasem ukusu i preferencama. Javite mi ako ste imale prilike isprobati novitet Bourjois brenda.
