New Brows for New Pastel Hair


It's difficult to find the right brow colour when you're a blond, especially if you like to experiment with different tones. Cooler spectrum of brow products is insufficiently full in drugstores and it doesn't make sense. Finding a perfect ashy, cool-toned brow product is almost mission impossible. While I'm still fairly happy with using a taupe cream shadow instead of genuine brow product for my eyebrows, I'm starting to get annoyed with washing my eyebrow brush every single time. Luckily, I've come across Bourjois Sourcil Precision Eyebrow Pencil which recently extended their colour selection with 3 new shades: 06 Blond Clair, 07 Noisette, 08 Brun Brunette. If I'm not mistaken, I believe there's already 3 other shades in their regular line, making a total of 4-6 brow shades. Now, I usually tend to choose the lightest, blondest brow pencil there is from different drugstore brands. Which wasn't the smartest idea after I've realised they all make my brows look too warm toned, yellowish and obviously fake compared to my cool toned complexion and hair. So, for a change, I went with the boldest, most cool-toned eyebrow pencil there is - 08 Brun Brunette.

Že tako je težko najti odličen izdelek za obrvi, če ste blondinka pa so težave še večje. Odtenki za obrvi v drogerijah so ponavadi občutno preveč topli kar otežuje pravo izbiro vsem, ki imate naravno barvo las ali hladnejše tone las. Najti čudovit pepelnat ali hladnejši odtenek rjave je preprosto misija nemogoče. Če pa vsemu skupaj pripišem moje eksperimentiranje z lasmi, sem se sčasoma sprijaznila z uporabo sivega kremnega senčila na obrveh. Z učinkom in barvo sem sicer zadovoljna vendar mi vsakodnevno čiščenje čopiča že malo načenja potrpljenje. Na srečo sem naletela na Bourjois Sourcil Precision Eyebrow Pencil, katerim so nedavno dodali 3 nove odtenke za večjo raznolikost: 06 Blond Clair, 07 Noisette, 08 Brun Brunnette. Če se ne motim je tako trenutno v kolekciji svinčnikov za obrvi okoli 5-6 odtenkov, pri nas le omenjeni trojček. Če bi izbirala kot v preteklosti, bi se verjetno najprej zapodila za najsvetlejšim odtenkom, namenjenim blondinkam. Kar pa navsezadnje ni bila nikoli najbolj pametna ideja glede na to, da imam naravno svetlo pepelnate rjavo-blond obrvi. Za definicijo je vsekakor potreben temnejši odtenek kot svetleje pobarvani lasje hkrati pa ne sme odstopati od naravnih dlačic obrvi. Kar hočem povedati je, da sem vedno imela mešane izkušnje s svinčniki za blondinke saj so bili enostavno presvetli in ''preveč rumeni'' za moj ton obrvi. Že v osnovi so enostavno pretopli (veliko rdečega pigmenta) za kar izgledajo obrvi enostavno nenaravne, umetne. Za spremembo sem se lotila najtemnejšega, strah vzbujajočega odtenka v Bourjois liniji - 08 Brun Brunette.


Perfect fit with Bourjois Eyebrow Pencil (about 6€) in 08 Brun Brunette! It's a ashy, dark brown with lots of cool undertones. It looks a bit intimidating in pencil form but you can easily manoeuvre the intensity you'd like. Shade is pretty much versatile as I get a darker greyish brown colour which fits my natural brow hair perfectly. Also, it works wonders on naturally dark brown and black hair - a perfect example is Meteo Beauty's post here so you can compare different outcomes. Selma and I are nothing alike when it comes to brows but Brun Brunnette seems to work on both, lighter/blond and bolder/darker brows. As for the formula, Bourjois Sourcil Precision has just the right amount of stiffness and softness. It's pretty waxy but still soft enough to easily blend it with the brush on the pencil cap. Product doesn't budge, it's easy to apply and great for filling up those annoying gaps between your brows. Not to mention it's great for travelling as you don't need any additional brush, setting product or tool. I'm honestly enjoying this product without even realizing how much I've needed this in the past.

S svinčnikom Brun Brunette (5,99€) sem tako doživela popoln efekt! Je pepelnata, temno rjava z odličnim ravnovesjem hladnih podtonov. Čeprav je na prvi pogled pretemen, skoraj neuporaben odtenek, je z njim z lahkoto doseči ravno pravo intenzivnost barve. Namreč, odtenek je tako univerzalen, da se odlično kombinira z mojimi svetlimi, pepelnato rjavimi obrvmi. Hkrati je enostavno čudovit za temnolaske in temnejše, gostejše obrvi. Odličen primer je objava Meteo Beauty tukaj kjer je razvidno da se ji svinčnik poda na obrvi kot rokavica na roko. Blogerka Selma in jaz imava sicer popolnoma nasprotni tip obrvi in odtenek dlačic ampak svinčnik 08 Brun Brunette enostavno deluje tako na svetlejših kot gostih, temnih obrveh. Če se dotaknem formule, so Bourjois Sourcil Precision ravno dovolj mehki in ravno dovolj trdi po gostoti. So dokaj voskasti, zato ostanejo na mestu, hkrati pa jih lahko enostavno zabrišete ali dorišete. Pokrovček ima tudi krtačko, kar omogoči lažji nanos na poti ali potovanju. Izdelek se obdrži na mestu (vendar ni vodoodporen), je lahek za uporabo in primeren za začetnike. Iskreno uživam v uporabi kljub temu, da se pred tem nisem niti zavedala da ga tako nujno potrebujem.


Now if you're a much bigger fan of brow mascaras, Bourjois also released Sourcil Brow Design Mascara (about 8,99-11€) in 4 different shades. One of them is 01 Transparent which is what I'm actually testing out. In general, they are great for adding some extra definition to brows yet they don't look super sharp or fake. Great for beginners and as a topper over your regular brow pencil or brow pen. Transparent brow mascara in particular servers only as a brow tamer or brow fixer. Extra bushy and thick eyebrows will definitely appreciate extra help at fixing them in the right place. Also, if you're brow products are not waterproof or wax-based, translucent brow mascaras help to restrain brow products where they were initially applied. Brush is quite skinny and easy to use while the mascara gel is quite pleasant and non-sticky. Still it manages to place everything in the right direction and hold it for the day. As I don't have any particular problems with taming my brow hair I wouldn't say it's a necessity for me personally. Bushy, wildly growing and enviously thick brows are probably the main target for translucent mascaras.

Če ste veliko večji pristaš naravnih obrvi in maskar za obrvi, je tukaj še novost Bourjois Sourcil Brow Design Mascara (okoli 8,99€) v 3 odtenkih in prozorni obliki - v Sloveniji je trenutno le prozorna verzija. 01 Transparent sem preizkusila tudi jaz, saj obljublja da obdrži obrvi na mestu cel dan. Na splošno so maskare za obrvi odlične kot dodatek barve za naraven videz, hkrati pa lahko z njimi fiksirate obrvi ali jih dodate nad ostale izdelke. Transparentna maskara služi kot fiksator obrvi ali fiksator predhodnih izdelkov na obrveh. Če so izdelki (svinčniki, črtala, kremni geli) ne-vodoodporni, bo maskara pripomogla h daljši obstojnosti. Bourjois Brow Design ima dokaj tanko krtačko za natančen nanos, medtem ko je sama vsebina nelepljiva in lahkotna. Kljub prijetni gostoti, maskara poskrbi za natančno počesane obrvi. Zame osebno sicer to ni ''nujen'' izdelek, ker imam dokaj redke in ukrotljive obrvi. Je pa lahko popoln pripomoček za zavidljivo gostejše, neukrotljive, štrleče obrvi





Bourjois brow products are a solid pick in the drugstore. I'm glad to see an ''out of the box'' cool toned brown shade which are generally lacking in drugstores. Along with Brun Brunette, 07 Noisette looks like a perfect warm brown for redheads or warmer hair colours while 06 Blond Clair might appeal to standard, yellow-toned blondes who don't want to darken their brows any further. As for Brow Mascaras I can't comment much pigmentation wise as I have transparent version but they're pretty efficient and fixing brows and other brow products in place. Another win situation with Bourjois. I'm also wearing new Bourjois Sweet Kiss Gloss in 04 Incogni-rose (super juicy and comfortable) so expect an in depth review on these beauties in the near future. Bourjois is found in all drugstores around Europe and internationally on Asos, FeelUnique.

Bourjois izdelki za obrvi so trdna izbira v drogerijah. Vesela sem, da vidim nenavadno hladen odtenek tudi v cenovno ugodnem rangu, kjer ponavadi najbolj primanjkuje ''naravno pepelnatih odtenkov''. Poleg 08 Brun Brunette je 07 Noisette primeren za tople tone in rdečelaske, medtem ko je 06 Blond Clair tipično topla blond barva. Glede Bourjois Brow Design Mascara ne morem veliko komentirati saj pigmentacije ostalih treh odtenkov nisem preizkusila. Prozorna verzija se je sicer odrezala v krotenju in česanju obrvi na svoje mesto ter podaljšani obstojnosti ostalih produktov. In tako zaključujem še eno uspešno situacijo z Bourjois. Na sliki nosim tudi nedavno novost Bourjois Sweet Kiss Gloss v odtenku 04 Incogni-rose (super sočni in udobni) zato kmalu pričakujte novo objavo. Bourjois lahko najdete v vseh drogerijah po Sloveniji z 3 odtenki svinčnikov za obrvi (5,99€) in prozorno maskaro (8,99€).

  4. I completely agree! Finding an ashy brow product is super hard, but this one looks incredible! I find that most pencils I've tried have obvious red tones to them, which don't look great in the brows. x
