New Bourjois Eye-catching Products: Brown Push Up Mascara & Lash Machine

Bourjois recently focused on adding additional eye-catching bits for full and dramatic lashes. Being totally inexperienced at Bourjois eye department, I've dived into testing with high hopes. I had especially high expectations for Lash Machine fibres. Remember those early sticky versions of white mascaras for extra volume? I've been a massive fan but slowly totally forgot about it with years. Lash Machine seems like a 21st century interpretation for massive lashes.

Bourjois nam je pred kratkim postregel s kupom novosti za trepalnice, kar je vsekakor pritegnilo marsikatero oko. Le kdo si ne želi zapeljivo dolgih in dramatičnih trepalnic? Sama sem sicer še dokaj nedolžna v  Bourjois oddelku za trepalnice, vendar sem skočila v testiranje z visokimi upi, kakor se tudi spodobi pri tako dobri znamki. Predvsem sem največ pričakovala od nenavadne Lash Machine, belih vlaken za dramatični volumen in dolžino. Se še mogoče spomnite prvih, a danes starih belih maskar za volumen trepalnic? Takrat sem ravno začela uporabljati maskaro in vem, da sem bila navdušena, vendar sem z leti pozabila na ta dodatek. Vsekakor me Lash Machine spomni na preteklost, ampak je nedvomno noviteta 21.stoletja.


Bourjois Lash Machine (about 12,50€, online) indeed consists of volume boosting fibres that should be applied between two mascara layers. White fibres stick to the first mascara layers while another coat of mascara mask them down. Lashes look consequently fuller and longer. While I unconditionally agree on double volume effect, the lenght itself is not as improved as I would like. Actually the statement from Bourjois is totally true - it lengthens lashes for about 15%. Volume and thickening is the main benefit. While Lash Machine is a totally unnecessary step at first glance, it's probably the best investment for dramatic and thick lashes. As you might have noticed, I'm a massive fan of huge, spidery lashes due to my naturally poor and blonde lashes. Lash Machine has become a huge part in my lash routine and I'm already planning to get myself a backup as it is a limited product in some countries. I absolutely love it and pictures obviously doesn't do it justice. I used it with their new Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara. Less clumps with regular mascara, due to less layering, and easy removing is also a good thing to point out. Just be careful with application as the fibres must be applied on wet first layer of mascara. Still, keep in mind that the fibres are not irritating but lens wearers and extra sensitive eyes are not the best beat, even though Bourjois claims that's perfectly safe.

Bourjois Lash Machine (okoli 12-14€ v drogerijah Muller & DM, omejena izdaja) je izdelek, ki navdušuje z belimi vlakni, katera dodajo trepalnicam volumen med dvema nanosoma maskare. Vlakna se tako oprimejo prvega, še vedno mokrega sloja maskare, za tem pa vlakna zakrijemo in odebelimo z drugim slojem. Trepalnice tako avtomatsko izgledajo gostejše, bolj vidne in celo malce daljše. Čeprav se popolnoma strinjam z volumnom in večjo gostoto, vlakna sicer podaljšajo trepalnice le za 15%, kakor tudi trdi znamka Bourjois. Sama sem sicer velika oboževalka gostih in že malce pajkastih trepalnic, ki so močno vidne tudi na daleč. Verjetno si predstavljate moje navdušenje nad prvo uporabo Lash Machine - ostala sem brez besed, saj imam naravno dokaj kratke, ravno rastoče in svetlo blond trepalnice. Dejansko sem tako očarana, da že iščem rezervno Lash Machine, preden pobegnejo iz prodaje z omejeno izdajo. Na slikah sem uporabila Lash Machine v kombinaciji z Volume Glamour Push Up maskaro in nisem imela večjih težav z grudicami, kot jih imam ponavadi z neomejenimi sloji navadne maskare. Lash Machine se zlahka odstrani, obenem pa vlakna niti malo niso dražila moji oči. Kljub temu, dvakrat premislite nakup, če imate zelo občutljive oči ali želite popolno ločene trepalnice.









Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara (about 12,50€, online) is probably the most iconic Bourjois mascara line that was recently expanded with brown, waterproof and ultra black interpretation. Already owning their Liner Clubbing Eyeliner in Brown Vibes, I couldn't resist trying out Push Up in 72 Fabulous Brown, a darkened brown. And since my eyelashes are blond anyway, I wasn't expecting any problems with visibility of brown hue. Surprisingly, brown mascara dries up to fairly darkened brown that's almost bordering black. I appreciate extra definition as there's nothing worse than a light coloured mascara for every day, yet it's still not as harsh on my undefined face like ultra black mascaras. The pick is actually totally up to you - if you appreciate subtle black browns, than Push Up Fabulous Brown is perfect. Still, if you prefer something more ''out there'', this is not  light or brown enough, even on my blonde lashes. Wand-wise, it has a typical mascara wand that's not plastic. It's pretty big and a bit clumsy but nonetheless I like the final effect. Typically I start to like mascaras after a good month when the consistency is less wet. Overall, it's a solid mascara pick and layers without a problem, but it doesn't exceed my old personal favourite.

Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara (okoli 12,50€ v drogerijah Muller & DM) je verjetno najbolj popularna Bourjois linija maskar, ki je bila nedavno povečana za tri člane - Vodoodporna, Rjava in Ultra črna verzija. Ker že dolgo časa uporabljam tudi njihov Liner Clubbing v rjavem odtenku, sem želela preizkusiti rjavo maskaro v 72 Fabulous Brown. Sicer maskara ni opazno rjava ampak bolj temno rjava, ki se že bliža črni barvi. Moje trepalnice so sicer svetlo blond, ampak sem imela kljub temu težave pri vidnosti rjavih tonov. Cenim dodatno definicijo mojih trepalnic z malce temnejšim odtenkom, hkrati pa ni tako ostra sprememba kot sama črna barva. Izbira je sicer popolnoma odvisna od Vas - če bi radi preizkusili skoraj neopazno temno rjavo, potem je Fabulous Brown čudovita. Če pa iščete bolj opazen in čist rjav odtenek maskare, potem bo Push Up razočaranje, sploh če imate naravno zelo temne ali črne trepalnice. Sama krtačka ni plastična in je v velikosti dokaj velika, kar malce oteži nanos. Kljub temu, sem zadovoljna z učinkom in lepo definiranimi trepalnicami kar se redko zgodi v prvem mesecu uporabe. Popoln potencial maskare se razvije pri moji uporabi šele po mesecu odprtja, ko postane formula malce bolj gosta. Če povzamem, je Push Up maskara trdna izbira in jo priporočam, vendar (še) ni moja najljubša izbira.




And if we're already talking about brown, Bourjois Liner Clubbing (about 8-10€) in 84 Brown Vibes is my good old trusty brown eyeliner that lasted me for months and months. It dries down into a more shiny finish with warm, reddish specks of shimmer. It's flattering but still soft enough to be worn on everyday basis. Goes well with every eye colour but makes blue eyes pop even more. The brush is not the best, I won't lie, but once you get the hange on it, it's much less stressful. Formula is quite fluid and watery but still opaque. The brush could be better, while it allows a more precise line if you're opting for more thin line. As the application goes I'm not that impressed but it's actually one of the rare finds with brown base within drugstore shelves. It doesn't flake yet it's not waterproof so it can be smudged out if you're not careful.

Če že ravno testiram rjave odtenke, potem lahko v zbirko dodam še starega prijatelja Bourjois Liner Clubbing (okoli 8€ v drogerijah Muller & DM) v odtenku 84 Brown Vibes. Je tekoče črtalo za oči, ki je vreden zaupanja tudi po mesecih in mesecih uporabe in se lesketa v temno rjavem odtenku z neopaznimi, toplimi bleščečimi delci. Laska prav vsako barvo oči, a najlepše poudari prav modre oči. Posuši se v dokaj sijoč zaključek. Črtalo je zaradi subtilne rjave primeren za vsak dan in hkrati dovolj enotno poudari oči. Sam čopič je standardne oblike, ki jo je sicer malce težje uporabiti, a lahko ustvari zelo tanke linije črt. Tekstura je precej tekoča a dokaj obarvana. Z nanosom sicer nimam večjih težav, vendar je pazljivost in mirna roka vsekakor potrebna. Liner Clubbing črtalu oprostim malce napora z nanosom le zaradi redkega rjavega odtenka na drogerijskih policah. Dobra stran je tudi to, da se črtalo ne drobi in ne lušči s kože. Obenem pa tudi ni vodoodporen in se lahko včasih razmaže zaradi neprevidnosti.





If I conclude this eye-some post, I'm highly impressed by Lash Machine. It makes all the difference I want - volumises and thickens while it also adds so-called 15% of length. I highly approve but be careful with extra sensitive eyes. As for Push Up Mascara, it's easily a favourite for changing up my eye look but not the best that I've had in the past. For a small change or statement, it's an easy-go brown. If you're lashes are naturally dark or black, I'm assuming it won't be so prominent in brown color. Oldie goldie Liner Clubbing Eyeliner is still in my drawers after almost 6 months and it's still going strong. It's not the easiest solution to have a perfect line or a flick but it's a lovely change of pace with less harsh effect than usual black eyeliner. Volume Glamour Push Up Mascara and Liner Clubbing are in permanent line, while Lash Machine is just a limited thing, at least in Slovenia.

Če povzamem ta oči-tno dolgo objavo, sem zelo navdušena nad Lash Machine, katera je pri nas na žalost omejena izdaja. Priporočam, da jo čimprej ulovite na posameznih, trend stojalih Bourjois. Zgodi se lahko namreč ista zgodba, kot s prehvaljenim Bourjois Java Rice pudrom, ki je izginil takoj, ko se je razvedela njegova učinkovitost. Lash Machine močno poudari volumen in doda gostoto, vendar trepalnice podaljša le za okoli 15%. Kljub vsemu toplo priporočam ta nenavadna vlakna za močno opazne trepalnice. Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up v rjavem odtenku je odlična izbira za malce drugačen videz v vsakdanjiku, ampak formula maskare ni moja najljubša. Kljub temu lepo poudari trepalnice in doda volumen. Če imate naravno zelo temne trepalnice, potem bodo rjavi toni vsekakor manj opazni. ''Oldie goldie'' Liner Clubbing črtalo je še vedno sveže tekoč tudi po okoli 6 mesecih uporabe. Ni najlažja izbira za nanos, vendar je toplo rjava barva vredna poskusa. Volume Glamour Push Up maskara in Liner Clubbing sta na voljo v redni prodaji.

  3. Fibres zgledajo kot leglo pajkov :D. Sliši se zanimivo in vsekakor mi je efekt na tebi zelo všeč:). Nisem prepričana glede teh vlaken. Če se prav spomnim je Maybelline Falsies tudi imela ta vlakna, ki so mi potem čez dan odpadala in to celo v oke. Ni mi bilo všeč. Je pa fajn, da je tukaj izdelek posebej in ga lahko torej praktično na vse maskare nanašaš za dodaten volumen in dolžino.
    Liner mi je všeč :).

    1. Ojoj, upam da tole ne draži oči ostalih...mogoče enostavno jaz nisem občutljiva na takšne stvari. Se pa vlakna lepo zalepijo na 1.moker sloj. Na demotu sem naredila napako, da nisem nanesla takoj na mokro maskaro, učinek bi bil še boljši :)

  5. Sem imela ta vlakna od Catrice in priznam, da je bil efekt, mogoče že malo preveč pajkastega videza, ampak efekt je bil, samo vlaknaso mi pares padala v oči in meje prav dražilo in potem sploh nisem več uporabljala, sem dala dalje. Bi pa probala če bi se obneslapri Golden Rose maskari 4v volumen,to ko smo dobile na konferenci, ker na meni sploh ne funkcionira, V od Volumna mi ne naredi in za takeprimere nebi blo slabo imet teh vlaken:). Drgače se mi pa maskare fino berejo:).

    1. Sliši se dokaj grozno da ti pade v oči ampak s temi nimam problemov z redno uporabo. Mogoče sem jaz neobčutljiva ali pa Bourjois res pazi pri malce višji ceni :)

  6. Volare, vsaj zdi se mi, da je bila Volare. Ena izmed mojih prvih maskar nazaj v srednji šoli. Je bila pol bela pol črna in takrat sem mela res lepe trepalnice :D
    Bi pa iz firbca še tole z vlakni probala, čeprav ne rabim volumna :P

    1. aaa, čisto možno :D Pa L'Oreal je imel eno ali dve če se pravilno spomnim. Ti imaš tako lepe dolge trepalnice, res ne rabiš dodatkov.
