Alright then, hands up whoever’s been reading MWS long enough to remember that I first told you about the existence of the Maybelline Pulse mascara way back in May 2009? Anyone? 😉 I mentioned there that it was not being brought into Malaysia at that time, and that it retailed for US$15 in the USA. My projected price was RM60 which you know, isn’t too far off the mark and yes, its here in Malaysia for a limited time I believe at RM59.90 😀
Anyway, at that time, I did say “Oh darn! Not another vibrating mascara!” and I will say it again “Not ANOTHER vibrating mascara!” This one, being from Maybelline and therefore under the L’Oreal group, I was not surprised to note that it operated on the same principle as the Lancome Oscillation mascara – the vibrating wand is activated by way of a button that you press so it is vibration on demand. Much better than anything that starts going the minute you open the tube, trust me on this.
Before you use it however, take note that you have to pull off the tab at the top, which removes a plastic bit and allows the battery power to run through the cap. Bit of elementary physics there 😉
Sometimes, one does have to pay a little bit of attention to details 😉 But all this swankiness aside from Maybelline, do I like this little buzzing wonder? Would it surprise you to know I do? 😀
