At a Glance:
Price: RM59.90 (approx. US$20)
Weight: 6.5ml / 0.22 Oz
Made in: China
Likes: Volumizes and curls well, nice waterproof formula (doesn't feel "crunchy")
Gripes: Applicator takes some getting used to (a little longer than usual), clumps
Color & Pigmentation:
This comes in only one color currently, which is the 01 Black shade. It is richly pigmented! :)
Texture & Scent:
The texture of this mascara is a little goopy, so you'll need to clean off the excess with a piece of tissue paper. It holds the curls and volumizes quite well, but unfortunately i find that it clumps easily too. Combing your lashes through with a lash comb and slowly adding on the layers instead of putting on one thick coat will yield better results.
Thankfully this one doesn't have a very strong chemical scent! :)
This mascara comes in the usual tube with an applicator attached to its cap. This being a vibrating mascara, there is a button on the cap which you press to start the vibrations and release when you're done :)
I have an issue with the applicator. Because it's longer than most of the other mascaras, it takes some practice before i stopped smearing mascara every now and then all over my eye area! lol!
This mascara comes in a box:
This mascara lasts the entire day on my lashes.
Price & Availability:
This mascara costs RM59.90 and is available at all Maybelline displayers in Watsons, Guardian, as well as your local pharmacies / supermarket :)
This is my first ever Vibrating mascara! Me being a sucker for discounted items naturally HAD to pick this up when it was going for just RM45.90 sometime earlier. Whoots! :D
I know I'm very late unto the vibrating mascara bandwagon, but after my *meh* experience with the Lancome Oscillation mascara two years ago I just couldn't be bothered until now! lol!
So how did this baby fared for me?
While i think that the vibrating function did help to boost volume and I like how it doesn't leave my lashes feeling all crunchy and dry (like alot of other waterproof mascaras do), I find the formula a little too clumpy and thick for my liking. Cleaning the excess off prior to applying will make it a little better, but you still need a lash comb!
Ok, as usual, here's a bunch of pics for you to judge for yourself (no lash comb used):
A lash comb and some patience are your best friends when using this mascara. Personally, this is just an okay mascara for me so i don't think i'll be repurchasing.
