Maybelline's Define-A-Lash mascara

Color - dark brown: good
Texture - thin, runny: excellent
Scent - barely there: excellent
Applicator - too bendy! it is too bendy to handle my eyelashes and bends back, ruining my eye makeup in the process: total crap


Lumene's applicator is soooo much better. Although Lumene costs twice as much, will get Lumene Volume Mascara next.

To find a mascara is like find the perfect pair of jeans, quite impossible !!
I like the Chanel Inimitable but i want to find a cheaper one.
I don't know this brand Lumene, i'm going to check it on the net :)
Have a nice day !

I really must say the Lumene's applicator is the best one I have tried but then again I never have the opportunity to try out the more expensive stuff. You have long and thick eyelashes too - I think You'd also like it.
Lumene is a very common (finnish) brand in Finland and the Baltics.

Thanks, maybe i will find it on eBay.
I really need a new mascara, mines are all dry :S

The price for Lumene should be between 10-13 EUR, do not overpay :)
I have read some great reviews on Inimitable too - does it also have a stiff brush? with long stiff bristles? more like a comb?

Inimitable have a plastic brush with short spikes, very easy to use.
And btw, i found Lumene products right under my eyes in Ukraine in a drugstore which offers discount for students :))))
How happy am I !!
