Are you that poor soul that never seems to win anything? I am. The times have changed though, and within the last couple of months, I've pulled a record of three things. All of them have been makeup-related, and one of them a mascara I've been dying to get my hands on.
Kiss and Make-Up hosted a giveaway, and yours truly was the lucky recipient of a shiny blue tube of Lumene's Blueberry Curl Mascara. Something about that shiny blue tube is so appealing to me, although the fact that it is infused with arctic blueberry oil really gives it a couple of extra gold stars. I'm usually a bit hesitant to travel down the road of a new mascara--as I like to stick to the old favorites--but this one isn't half bad. The plastic brush is similar to that of Cover Girl's Lash Blast (the popular orange tube), yet with a thinner head. Application wise, it glides on smoothly, and keeps the lashes separated. The company boasts promises of volume, which is a tad bit untrue, and while we're on the subject of negatives, it seems to smudge a bit more than other mascaras during the day.
*Nice easy applicator
*Easy on the wallet
*Great key conditioning ingredient--blueberry oil
*Doesn't offer much in the area of volume
*Smudges on eyelid and lower lash line (I have medium to dry lids)
Are you a fan of Lumene? Are there other products that I should be giving a try?
