A Different Stroke- Lumene Blueberry Curl Mascara

So I thought that I would try something different, something instead of nail polish and contests. *sees you all wince in horror* Sorry, Ladies. I am kind of a mascara whore, so I thought I'd share.

The first and only time I saw anything about Lumene mascara was on LUXE TIPS!. She posted about a Lumene facebook page, which I clicked on her link and saw this:

I thought, 'Oo what a cool sounding mascara! Oo available at Ulta- I go there a lot, I should check this out!'

Well I forgot about it for a while, then I saw it in an Ulta ad to get this:

All for only $9.99 (I sound like an infomercial-sorry). I thought I would give it a shot.

Here's what it claims:

And apparantly:



We shall see.

cute tube color-kinda reminds me of blueberries- duh!

the brush

my stick-straight, small, short lashes

one coat

two coats

post removal

As you can see, the makeup remover that came with is a little oily.

What do y'all think? I should have stopped at one coat? Do they look longer as well as have a curl to them? Or is it just me?

This was the first time I have used a curling mascara. Did I do a good job? Are you heading out to buy it right now?

Tell me, tell me!

I think they look longer, and I think they looked ok with two coats too, but I love me some mascara :)

Did it smell like blueberries at all?

contests and such said...

No I did not notice if there was a different smell like lash stiletto. Or a blue tint at all, like I expected :)

I liked the two coats as well, they definitely looked longer!

contests and such said...

They really were longer! I really do love this stuff! It will replace my lash stiletto, I think-yes, yes it will!
This has everything I love in a mascara: length, curl, and volume!

Did you like the stiletto? I wansn't impressed with it at all. I think I tried it about three times and then did'nt use it again.
