Happy Monday, my darlings! I hope that those celebrating in the U.S. had a wonderful 4th of July. My Mommy came down from North Florida to visit and we had a ball!
I have received several requests to review this mascara. Some are a few months old. But it’s not because I forgot! I really couldn’t find it! A stroll down Ulta had this mascara calling my name so behold…..
Price: 5 out of 5 (I got it for $9.99 at Ulta)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims: Perfectly voluminous lashes with the power of Nordic nature! A mascara which combines unique Finnish blueberry seed oil with the exceptional characteristics of an innovative plastic mascara brush. (source)
The truth: It doesn’t smell like blueberries but woooow, it’s good!!
What I loved about it: Well for starters, the wand rocks. This may be one of the best wands that I have ever used. The bristles are just perfect. It looks like Cover Girl’s Lash Blast wand but better….the bristles are longer making separation of the lashes easy.
What I didn’t like: Shucks man….this mascara would get a 5 if only it lasted throughout the day! Boooo!
Overall: I first heard about Lumene’s Blueberry Curl mascara from Vanessa at Contests and Such. And of course my first question was, “Does it smell like blueberries?” Blackberry seed oil is used in this mascara and aside from it helping curl your lashes, it is also supposed to keep them stronger and healthier. This is definitely the kind of mascara you would want to use over time to see if they indeed become stronger and longer.
Ahhh….what I can say? Initial application is amazing. You can apply up to three coats of this mascara without any clumps. Already amazing in my book. Even the curl factor is up to par. And that says a lot since the average mascara doesn’t really “curl”.
But the real problem is that the mascara looses its “umph” throughout the day. While my lashes look long and curl-tastic now, a few moments outside in the Floridian heat and the mascara seems to just wither away. It isn’t as hard as most mascaras. But that’s just me. I would imagine ladies in other climates or with less oily skin would not have this issue.
Lumene Blueberry Curl mascara
How cool would it be if there was a Strawberry mascara? Sooo hot!
A crazed mascara reviewer,
