first, there was Lancome Oscillation...now comes Maybelline Vibrating mascara!

I know this isn't available locally yet, thanks to Ate Gracie for sending me this to try.

must remove the plastic strip that's connected to the battery so you can start using it

push that button to start coating your lashes without the "wiggling."

before and after shots

"where did my curls go???"

what i love:

  • intense black color in just one coat
  • easy to remove...well, i got the non-waterproof formulation

what i hate:

  • weighs down my curls
  • smudges
  • doesn't give that volumizing or lengthening effect
  • expensive, priced at almost $15
  • it clumps!

to avoid losing my curls, i first primed my lashes with my Shiseido Lash base then applied 2 coats of this mascara...and my curls did stay!

but...

smudges galore at midday!

will i purchase?

NO. A total waste of money, IMHO. Some may have liked this mascara, but not me. Sure, i can do something so my curls would stay...but do i really need to take that extra step? And i hate smudges (i forgot to apply the lash primer on my lower lashes though)! I had to re-apply my undereye concealer at midday just to get rid of those icky panda eyes.

sorry, but this product just didn't work for me.

tata!
