On the 23th of April, forty beauty bloggers all over Estonia got together in the restaurant called Al Bastione. I was also among the forty.
Each beauty blogger also got a little gift bag. Well, not so little. The gift bag was quite big and impressive.
From Lumene I got two products.
True Mystic Volume mascara – It was a mascara which promised to give a mystic volume, hence the name. In reality, it gave volume, but it was not that mystic. I liked that the brush was rather large. The bristles were in two lengths which helped get the mascara everywhere it was needed. With one swipe I got all my lashes covered. With two-three coats it gave enough volume and length to consider lashes done. I also liked that my lashes didn’t clump together when I applied more than two coats. Throughout the days I´ve used it, I haven’t noticed any flaking or smudging.
The mascara came off easily with a makeup remover. I have heard some people remove it also with just water but that didn’t work for me. I found using a product to remove makeup easier.
Overall it is a nice everyday mascara, and I am definitely going to use it until it’s old or empty.
Arctic Glow Lip Oil – It was a very light lip gloss. The formula was smooth and only a bit thicker than an actual oil. Despite having a tone, (mine is in Dew), it was completely sheer on my lips. The appearance while wearing it was nice and glossy.
A huge minus for me with this product was the applicator. When I opened the tube, it looked like any other doe foot applicator. Then I applied it to my lips and I was confused. I actually took a closer look at the applicator. In the middle of the applicator was a little divet. I don’t know if that was the reason, but something made the applicator hard. It almost scraped the product off my lips when I applied it.
I wanted to like the lip oil because it looks pretty and has a cool name, but I didn’t.
