I had very high hopes for this mascara, what for its price and all but it turned out to be a complete disaster.
I thought that since almost all the Maybelline mascaras that I’ve tried rocked, this one will surpass them all. After all, it’s the most expensive at Php699.
I love the packaging. Black and gold always looks sleek and sexy in my book. Here’s the wand:
There’s nothing special there except for the vibrating effect. The neck is made of flimsy material. I thought it would break the first time I used it. I accidentally struck the case with the head of the wand and the neck bended a little.
You just push a button at the end of the cap to make it vibrate. It’s not a big vibration. I almost feel that the vibration is useless as the mascara still clumps up on my lashes. Those are the most clumps that I’ve ever experienced with a mascara. Even the ELF mascara didn’t clump like that. This is the reason why I didn’t take a photo. Even after blotting with a tissue, there were still some visible clumps.
I also don’t know how long the battery will last. I only used this twice. Why? Because my lashes started falling off! Since Kitten complimented me on my long lashes, I’ve been giving them extra care. I didn’t bother with my lashes before but when Kitten pointed that out, I became very conscious of them, applying mascara and eye products with extra care to maintain them. On my first use, one lash fell. I don’t know if it’s the vibrating effect or the product itself is too strong for my sensitive eyes/skin/(possibly lashes). I shrugged it off thinking that it’s nothing. Throughout the day, I’ve experienced some itching and more falling lashes. When I finally removed it in the afternoon, about 2 more lashes fell. It took some effort to remove the mascara so I thought that I just pulled my lashes. I also thought that my constant rubbing did it.
On my second day, 2 lashes immediately fell about a couple of minutes after application. That’s when I got concerned. This time, I observed what will happen. My eyes became itchy because the lashes at the edge keep poking them. Sometimes there’s this feeling that there’s something in my eye but when I check, it’s all clear. In the afternoon, I was extra careful in removing my eye makeup but darn it! More lashes fell! So that was it. I gave the tube to my mom this morning, telling her of my experience and hoping that the mascara works out nicely for her.
Good thing I bought it on sale otherwise I would really be heartbroken. So, the Maybelline Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara was a big failure for me. Have you tried this mascara yet?
