I bet if you watch YouTube, you’ve heard of the NUME hair styling tools. I was lucky enough to receive the Lustrum set for Christmas last year, and have been meaning to do this review for ages! I wanted to let you all know if NUME is really worth the attention they get online with all those sponsored videos.
First of all, they always have extreme discounts with youtuber promo codes, and so I got my Lustrum set for $100. It also came with an adaptor from US to Aus so I didn’t have to worry about that.
The set itself comes with the tool, and then five different barrels. They all lock easily into place and heat up very quickly. The pack comes also with a glove (use it! This heats up to 230C and I’ve burnt the crap out of myself) and a leather roll to store all the barrels safely.
I would definitely recommend getting some sectioning clips and heat protectant (I use either Nak or a cheap Protane one) as the barrels get super hot and you need to protect your hair.
The barrels include a wide one, a medium, a tight, a bumpy one (it created beach-like waves) and a tapered barrel. They’re all really good and work really well. I can create a tonne of different looks very quickly with the kit.
I only have one complaint with the kit, and that is that the curls don’t last super long. Admittedly, this could be my hair, but I don’t find that the curls last for days like the youtubers tell you they do. Other than that, I really like the way it all works, and that I have such a variety of looks to create with all the different barrels.
I hope this helped! If anyone has any questions about the set leave them below 🙂
