Review - Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara

After finally getting around to sorting out my desk and getting myself a little more organised, I found a few gems that I had forgotten about. The main one is this mascara. I haven't used it in a couple of months and thought I'd give it a go this morning and I forgot how completely perfect it is! It's the Maybelline Pulse Perfection mascara.

This mascara is Maybelline's take on the famous vibrating mascaras from Lancomé & Estee Lauder. I never had the heart to buy either of them, because of the price. I don't really like the idea of spending £20+ on a mascara, so when this Maybelline version came out, I jumped at the chance to try it out.

It took a little while to get used to the wand, but after a while it becomes easy. It's so easy to get to the outer lashes, too. It makes lashes so thick, long and beautifully separated. After just a couple of coats it looks like you're wearing false lashes. It is completely fantastic and now I have rediscovered it, I won't be letting it go again!

* The end result.
* The price - £14 is much cheaper than the £20+ high end brands cost.
* The wand is easy to use.

* The wand might take a little while to get used to.
* The battery isn't quite as long lasting as you might hope. The vibrating dulls a little over time.
* The print rubs off the tube easily. I know it isn't a huge deal, but it might annoy some.


  1. It does look great on you! I was a huge fan of Lancome's Oscillation and really loved the effect the vibrations gave. I wish i could find a vibrating mascara that was cruelty free :(
