I'm really glad too I listened to the reviews and bought this mascara! For the price point it's good quality. The main things are that it holds a curl well (my lashes stick straight out) and it doesn't do anything to make lashes break/keep them from growing. I'm not sure if it encourages growth but mine seem to be thriving with daily use - at least it's not hurting them, which I have seen happen with other mascaras. It lengthens with a great natural look. The only reason I give it 4 stars is, sort of a personal preference, I prefer a slightly more stiff consistency to my mascara whereas this one is more soft. It's not dramatic enough for evening. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, it's not the easiest to remove, but coconut oil removes it all for me no problem.
Meh - this (the waterproof version) was OK for me. Frankly, it worked the same for me as far as volume, length and tenacity as many of the other ds mascaras I've used. The drawback for me is I can only get online = won't repurchase.
I am so happy I gave this mascara a try. It does just what it says...and NO ANIMAL TESTING :) Yay!
I just reordered another tube of this (I buy it online at Walgreens). My lashes stay curled all day and I have not had any issues with it flaking.
I am finding that I really like the Lumene line. The BB cream (I wear light for my very fair complexion) is the best that I have used. I never use regular foundation any more.
Love it! My HG mascara! Have already repurchased it a few times and will keep repurchasing. :)
I have quite short and straight lashes and i love it how it really curls my lashes and separates them one by one without making them clumpy or "spidery" looking. It will really give you curled, pretty lashes and it opens up your eyes beautifully. I love it how it's really like black black (not blueyish at all) and it stays on all day without smudging.
However if you're looking for really long, dramatic lashes this is probably not the best mascara for you once this one makes your lashes more natural looking, i feel. :)
I have the waterproof version, which has a light blue package.
This is my favourite "cheap" mascara. Usually I use the Lancome hypnose doll eyes waterproof mascara, but this one is almost as good as the one from lancome.
I don´t usually like rubber brushes, I prefer the traditional ones, but this one really works. It defines the lashes beautifully, but is also gives volume and lenght, when you use it more.
I have long, but super straight lashes, so the most important thing for me is the curling effect. That´s why I always use a lash curler and waterproof mascara (it dries faster and doesn´t ruin the curl). This one keeps the curl the whole day, and my eye make up looks good the whole day. This doesn´t irritate my eyes either (super sensitive and I wear contact lenses) unlike some mascaras do (for example diorshow waterproof: it´s horrible!)
You can´t create MEGA lashes with this mascara, but it´s an excellent every day mascara.
I have used this mascara for years.
I use the waterproof version and it gives me lenght, volume and holds the curl. I love it and will use nothing else. HG. LOVE IT.
Only downside to this mascara (the waterproof one) is that it's pretty hard to remove. The only eyemakeupremover that really removes this product is the Lumene waterproof makeup remover. I'm willing to overlook this fact knowing that my mascara allways stays put and never ever smears or smudges. You could probably wear this mascara for a week with one aplication.
Esta es mi mascara favorita! no da mucho volumen, pero las define totalmente! las alarga y separa, que es justo lo que yo busco!
It's a good mascara, but not amazing. I guess it's good for curl (I already have curly lashes), decent but not amazing for length, and doesn't do much for volume. It's nice for more natural looking lashes, but given all the love for it I was definitely let down. Also the brush can take a bit of getting used to, and can kind of hurt to use.
I have this in the waterproof formula and it's the best mascara I've ever tried.
The reason i bought this mascara in the first place was the shiny turquoise packaging. I had never heard anything about this but it turned out to be a huge win. This lengthens, defines and and gives volume to my lashes. I love the rubber brush and that it has both long and short bristles so you could choose which side to use, and by that get the natural or dramatic lashes that you want.
This also holds my curl amazingly, though I'm not sure if the regular version would.
5 out of 5 and definitely a repurchase, I have gone through several tubes of this already.
I FINALLY found my go to mascara!!!!! I've tried different mascaras over a year or so. This was reviewed on MUA and I thought I'd try it based on the reviews. Well, I am happy that I did! Love it! It does NOT make my lashes clumpy. I normally have long and a lot of lashes and most mascaras tends to clump. I've tried Tracy McaVoy, Lancome, and others. Lumene is the best out of all of them. My other favorites are Walgreen's Jordana in black/purple/pink tube and Rimmel Glam Eyes. I guess these are my top 3, with Lumene as my favorite! It made my lashes look natural yet longer and thicker without clumping and looking fake. Really nice mascara and comes off really good also. This is NOT the waterproof mascara. I purchased the regular mascara. Lastly, my bottle is not dry at all. It is not watery either, just right!! Perhaps the other reviews listed are for the waterproof type or they purchased an old mascara???? I purchased mine on line.
