Hot Drugstore Find of the Week: Lumene Blueberry Curl Mascara
I hope your life is simply fabulous! I am learning to appreciate all of life’s pleasures regardless if they are simple or grand! Life is beautiful!
I previously blogged that Lumene Skincare has a fan page on Facebook. When they initially set up the page, they had a contest and I was one of 15 people who won! We received $50 worth of Lumene Skincare products. I am already a fan of their skincare products. Since I have been using them, my skin’s tone has improved and it is definitely more radiant. Well in the package they sent me a tube of their Blueberry Curl Mascara. I have never used their cosmetics, so I was excited to try out the Mascara.
First I must say that I love the packaging. The mascara tube is navy blue with a really cool shaped top! This Mascara claims to curl your lashes, build your lashes, not produce clumps, and nourish your lashes with Artic Blueberry. Did this Mascara live up to the hype? Well let’s see!
The brush on this Mascara definitely curls your lashes! The brush is plastic and very flexible. However the shape of the brush is what really curls your lashes. It is narrow on both ends but wide and flat in the middle. When I was using the Mascara, my lashes were curling with each stroke. Now that is genius! Also the Mascara will separate and lenghten your lashes. I was pretty impressed with the amount of length I achieved. The formula is pretty light too, which I really liked.
However, the Mascara did clump a bit. After applying a second coat of Mascara, I noticed that the Mascara begin to clump on my outer lashes. As I tried to apply a 3rd coat it continued to clump. So I was not happy with the clumps. Does it nourish your lashes? I am not sure. I do know that Artic Blueberry is a key ingredient in a lot of Lumene’s skincare products, and like I said, I love their skincare. My skin has definitely improved for the better.
But besides that I really liked the Mascara. If you have straight lashes or short lashes and want instant curl, length, and separation, I would definitely buy this Mascara. I have used other Mascaras that claim to curl and they did not. This one lives up to the hype! This Mascara retails for $9.99 and you can purchase it at CVS or Ulta.
