Oh please, like you didn’t think I wasn’t going to try this new mascara from Maybelline?  I spied this in Walmart last week (I think it hit other stores stores this week) and it just sort of happened to fall in my carriage.  Walmart carries this for $12.50 – kinda hefty for drug store mascara, but considering I was thinking of shelling out $34 for Lancome’s version I rationalized that this was a bargain.  I believe that other drug stores will be carrying this for $14.95.  Anyhoo…Listen, I’m all over personal items that vibrate, but mascara was never a product that I thought would get in on the game…have we become that spoiled with our products that we can’t zig zag a mascara wand over our lashes when we’re applying it?  Do we really need a vibrating mascara to do the work for us?   Well, kids, the answer is no, or how about – not necessarily.   The pro’s?  It’s glossy, doesn’t smear or clump, doesn’t feel crunchy on and appears to be long lasting and non-irritating. (I’m a contact lens wearer, so comfort is huge).  I would say it adds length more than volume.  The cons?  It looks NO DIFFERENT (on my eyes anyway) than a regular ol’ non-vibrating mascara once it’s on.  The past few days I’ve done a side by side with Pulse Perfection and my current fave, CG’s Lash Blast – and honestly, there’s no difference.  Actually, I still get more volume from CG’s Lash Blast.  Does it hold my curl?  Yes.  No issues there either.   Would I repurchase?  I’m going to say…no.  Why?  Because at just about half the price, I can buy another drug store mascara that does the exact same job as this pulsating one does.  I’d like to say kudos to Maybelline for being the first to introduce a vibrating mascara before the other drug store companies hopped on board.  I know they were a little late to the show in the big-fatty tube category.  I think CG’s Lash Blast was almost out a full-year b/f Maybelline introduced Colossal – which by the way, I like better than Pulse Perfection.   Final thoughts- Pulse Perfection is a decent performing mascara at a still affordable price – I have a feeling it will do well.  After a few more weeks of usage, I’d be very willing to come and edit my review if it starts growing on me more than it has this past week. Stay tuned.
