New mascara: Lumene Excellenght

My last HG mascara, many years ago, was Intelligent mascara from finnish brand Lumene but they discontinued it and I started to search for a new favorite. I found many good ones but unfortunately non waterproof ones just can't hold the curl in my straight lashes :(

Excellenght from Lumene has a tiny rubber brush. The brush is not to hard or too soft, it's just perfect. This gives long, separated lashes. Unfortunately I lost many lashes with Dior Iconic Extreme (picture 2, right side) so my lashes look quite terrible... This should be also be good for your lashes, we shall see :) This can't hold the curl in my lashes (my lashes are naturally really straight) so I have to use waterproof ones. However, this work very well in lower lashes and I have used Excellenght daily. I just have to use LashStiletto wp in upper lashes :)


Olen etsinyt suosikkimascaraa jo pidempään, pari vuotta sitten käytin tyytyväisenä Lumenen Intelligent mascaraa mutta menivät sitten lopettamaan tuon ihanuuden. Ostin ja löysinkin monta kivaa mascaraa mutta nyt vihdoinkin jotain mistä pidän erityisesti!

Ripsiväri on Lumenen uusi Excellenght. Harja on minikokoinen kumiharja, sillä saa todellakin pitkät ja erotellut ripset. Harja on juuri sopivan jämäkkä: ei liian kova eikä liian pehmeä. Ei pakkuja, eikä suttaa luomia. Valitettavasti kammottava kokeilu Dior Iconic Extremen kanssa katkaisi paljon ripsiäni (toinen kuva, oikealla) ja ne ovat aika kamalat nyt... Lumenen pitäisi hoitaa ripsiä ja näin saada ne niin pitkiksi kuin ne luonnostaan voivat kasvaa. Tätä todellakin toivon :) Ainoa ongelma on se, ettei pidä taivutuksia kunnolla. Alaripsissä tämä on kuitenkin suosikkini ja olenkin käyttänyt tätä päivittäin jo pidempään. Yläripsiin laitan LashStiletto wp:tä :)

I usually do not use mascara on lower lashes but this was so easy to apply! And I tink lower lashes look quite natural.

The brush is really tiny :) Here with Max Factor False Lash effect (Cover Girl Lashblast in US).

No more giant brushes for me :D

  1. Yay, I'm so glad you found your HG mascara! Tiny brushes are great for getting at all the little corner lashes. Maybelline Lash Discovery WP has a wonderful tiny brush that I loooove, but the formula itself comes off under my eyes by the end of the day. I've never heard of Lumene. Is it only in Europe?

  2. When I visited Boston about a year ago, I saw Lumene products in one drugstore :)

  3. Ooh, I gotta try that one as well! I prefer small rubber brushes nowadays, too. I'm a bit doubtful though about it not being wp, since my eyes are really sensitive and watery. Non-wp mascaras only smudge and end up on my upper & lower lids during the day :/

  4. I have a flu and used this on lower lashes too, no smudging. But you never know before you try it yourself.

  6. Näyttää hyvältä alaripsissäkin :)

    Oletko muuten tilannut jotain TKB:tä, joka on linkkilistassa? Paljonko tuli postikuluiksi?

  7. Henna: Silloin käytössä taisi olla Hypnose Drama. Tämä uutukainen poltteli vielä käsilaukussa ;D Byhyy, nyt nämä ripset ovat rikki, poikki ja katki :/

    Anonyymi: En ole tilannut, kovasti kyllä tekisi mieli :D
