Maybelline Pulse Perfecting Vibrating Mascara {the review}

Buzzzzzz...that's the sound of?? A bee, no...but Maybelline Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara. Lately, there has been alot of hype on vibrating mascaras in the makeup market and this one is the first one I've tried so I can't really compare to other vibrating mascaras. Initial reaction...hmm interesting & kinda cool. Of course as a beauty junkie I'll try most beauty items anyway.
Maybelline's Pulse Perfection Vibrating mascara features:
*Our patented motor pulses the brush 100 times a second, transforming each lash like no hand can. Get ready for your richest, most luxurious, most perfect lashes ever.
*The revolutionary vibrating brush gives you the 7 signs of lash perfection at the touch of a button. Now, get lashes that are thicker, longer, defined, intense, curved, shiny and clump-free.
*While pressing the button, place brush at lash base and move slowly towards lash tip. No need to zig zag brush. Repeat as desired for top and bottom lashes. Release the button to stop pulsing.
Available in two shades: Very Black & Blackest Black

My review:
{PROS}I like the formula of the actual liquid & the shade (Blackest Black) which was a dark grey/black. I also liked the wand's flexibilty & rubber material (like Maybelline's New Define-a-Lash, the one in the green tube which by the way is great). Separates lashes and adds length! Washes off easily (I had the non-waterproof type).
{CONS} Can smear if you don't allow the liquid to dry. I much prefer NOT using the vibrating technique because I'm a creature of habit & can't help but zig zag the wand. The trick in using the wand while its in vibrating mode is to NOT zig zag. However, I just couldn't grasp this technique & instead ended up smearing it.
On a side note, a friend of mine that's not into makeup loves the Maybelline Pulse Perfection Vibrating mascara. So, maybe its a good try for those that don't wear makeup everyday.
Sorry, Maybelline but this one's a NO on my part. I think I will bury it along side Maybelline's Great Lash mascara (another miss for me).

  1. Nice review, hun! Love your blog. The Shiseido foundation is widely available in NA.

  2. Vibrating? Really? I don't think I dig that idea.

  3. Vibrating mascara seems to be a fad...I'm just not that into it.
