I was pleasantly surprised with this mascara. I wasn't sure if the whole "vibrating mascara" would actually work well and I wasn't willing to spend so much on the ones from Lancome and Estee Lauder. I'm more of a drugstore mascara girl since you have to toss them every 3 months anyway. I don't really have any major complaints. This mascara is one of my new favorites. It adds really nice length and volume. Most importantly, it holds a curl which is important for my stick straight lashes. I think the vibrating does make a little bit of a difference. I feel like the bristles grip my lashes better. I'd definitely recommend this mascara. The shade I'm using is "Very Black"

  1. wow! thnx for the review! it really did its job :)

  2. Ai: no problem! it really does work well for my lashes.

  3. Whoa. I haven't seen this yet, but looks like it's worth the try! But why does it have "vibrating"... does it actually vibrate? hahaha! :] J/P or am I?

  4. mszcheysser: yup, when you hold down the button the wand vibrates! not too much that you'll poke your eye out or anything though.

  5. I like that brush of the mascara! And it works very well for ya!

  6. your lashes look so pretty and natural

  7. my_makeup_mania: i like the brush too, i'm thinking of trying define-a-lash since they have the same shape.

    melissa: thanks! a lot of mascaras don't hold my curl so i was happy with this one.

  8. I saw this at the store and I tested it out on the display. I thought it was pretty cool. :)

  9. Tina Marie: when i saw it at target, i grabbed it really fast with excitement haha.


Feedback is always appreciated! :)
