I bought this mascara on a good deal to bump up to free delivery on an order, I kept it at my boyfriends as a spare and will admit the quality was decent for the price. I have to admit, the formula for this mascara did not impress me as I found a lot of fall out through out the day and and having long lashes, a lot of the product transferred under my eyes and made me look like a sleepy panda, so I wouldn't use this for anything more than a short trip to the local shops etc. However the great thing about this product is the brush, to begin with the end of the wand is strong but flexible so gives great control allows good shaping and coverage. The most exciting part is the pulsing want which enables amazing lift and curl to the lashes. It's a shame the battery doesn't last that long though.
I would recommend buying this product purely for the wand and using it with another mascara for excellent volume lift, curl and separation.
P.S. This product is not good for travel, when I put it in my bag I usually ended up embarrassed when people started asking what was vibrating in my bag!!!!!!
I am not brand loyal when it comes to mascara and as a result have tried a fair few in my time. It does seem to be one particular area of makeup which can tend to be quite gimmicky(!), so I was interested to see how this product would fare when I received it as part of a Christmas present. I have never spent more than £5 on a mascara, whether due to freebies / vouchers etc and nearly fainted when I saw it advertised as £15.... well it must be good, thought I.
The tube itself is slim and of a smart design which does look expensive. The wand and brush are also slender, which I actually found very useful for my lower lashes. There were limited instructions (read: none!) for use on the packaging, so I wasn't sure how best to tackle applying the mascara. In the end I decided to apply as usual (without the vibration) then use the vibration to separate any clumps and to add a second layer if required.
The mascara itself can't be faulted, it is a good consistency and goes on smoothly. A couple of times I've come a cropper when trying to press the vibration on though and ended up with blobs around my eye :) But you do get used to it, although I do have to change how I hold the mascara ever so slightly to keep it depressed.
In summary - I didn't see any noticeable difference to my lashes with the added vibration. However, the mascara is lovely, didn't flake, lasted well and was easy to remove. In addition the packaging and brush is appealing to me.
I probably only bought this mascara as i thought the concept of it was a pretty good idea, but after trying it, i can honestly say i am not sure if it was worth all the fuss. I got bought it as a Christmas present, as it was quite expensive in comparison to standard mascaras, so did not fancy spending the money out on one mascara.
The design if the tube is quite nice, it is black with gold lines swirling through it and the name of the product in gold also on the front. The button to actually make the mascara pulse is in a very good position for convenience, it is on the side of the brush handle so you can keep your figure firmly on the button whilst applying your mascara at ease.
I admit the vibrating section does work for de-clumping eyelashes and creating a very soft spider leg effect, but other than that i could not honestly say it does nothing more than any other mascara, it does not build much volume nor does it give much length. The brush itself is quite small, but I have a big collection of mascaras all of different thicknesses, so I did not mind that. I also found the battery ran out a lot quicker than the actual mascara did, and the battery was rather hard to replace, so in the end i ended up using the mascara without the pulsing movements.
Overall i would say i am glad i tried it and if i bought it part of a 3 for 2 i would not mind using it but i would not rush out to buy it anytime soon.
I bought this mascara recently from a discount store near where my boyfriend lives. The store has a whole range of products but I tend to stick to the beauty brands I know as you can guarantee quality but at a cheaper price.
This mascara was £2.99 which is pretty good compared to the £7-£9 you could expect to pay for it on the high street. I bought it in black because this is the only colour mascara I like to wear, though they did have brown and blue also.
The mascara comes in a classic looking black cylindrical tube which has a lid that twists on and off and a brush inside. The top of the lid has a clear part into which the battery goes and on the side of the lid at the top there is a rectangular button you hold down to get the pulsing working. The design is pretty simple, black and gold are the two main colours and these look nice together. I wouldn't say I am blown away by it but the design if functional and it looks ok.
The brush itself is a hard plastic comb which has a slight elliptical shape to it. The teeth are spaced quite close together and coated evenly in mascara fluid. The fluid is of an average thickness, a dark black and manages to coat the brush without clumping. Personally I'm not overly keen on comb brushes because I find the hard plastic a little harsh and I'm far more likely to hurt myself with one. I don't think they are as effective in creating volume though I do like how they tend to be good at creating length.
I bought this mascara mainly because I had read a review a while back where someone had said this was their favourite mascara. I love to try out mascaras and usually own at least 10 at any one time so I thought it would be interesting to give this one ago - especially because of the additional pulse feature.
I find the brush alone is pretty effective in separating lashes and creating length, though I do find it difficult to coat the lashes properly with this because the comb is so narrow is tends to take off the mascara. If you prefer a subtle look this is good but I like fully loaded lashes and for this purpose the mascara isn't that great. If you hold down the pulse button you get a vibrating sensation going through the mascara. This feels weird on your eyelashes and makes it more difficult to pull the brush across them, but I have found it does help achieve even longer lashes.
Overall I wouldn't want to pay any more than £2.99 for this. I am glad I'm tried it and satisfied my curiosity but it certainly won't be something I'll try again. It didn't totally disappoint me but I didn't find it amazing either so I won't go out of my way to buy it.
I purchased this product while I was scrolling through an online discount make up retailer. I was looking for products for my friends birthday when I stumbled across this little beauty. I had seen it advertised some time ago but it RRP's at £15.49 and I never pay that much for a mascara. I think it was something like £1.99 on the site so I thought I would give it a try. I ordered it and when it arrived I was slightly sceptical but I have to say I was very impressed
The product came in a cardboard and plastic wrapper with instructions on the back stating how to remove the battery cover (I will come onto that later) and listing the key selling points to draw you in.
The tube itself is black with gold writing on it which gives it a classy yet stylish look. It also has gold patterned lines running up the tube. On the bottom is a sticker which gives you information regarding the product (ie. very black, 22fl.oz and 6.5ml). On the lid, actually no scrap that I mean IN the lid is a watch battery and a button which you push when applying the mascara in order to make it vibrate, hence the name pulse perfection. The battery itself lasts a long time so I didn't have to replace it on my first tube as I ran out of product first (Im half way through my second and the battery is still fine). The mascara wand itself is nothing really special just a normal shape however the bristles on it are very good which add to the length of the lashes better than cheaper wands.
I absolutely love this product and I dont know how I didn't find this little gem earlier. Although 6.5ml doesn't sound like a lot of product it does last me a good few months before it runs out and like I said previously the battery lasts longer than the product so you probably won't need to go out and buy one.
The mascara adds so much length to my lashes and makes them look jet black however it doesn't add much volume so I find I use Rimmel London scandal eyes to thicken my lashes and the maybelline pulse perfection to make them appear longer (also the fact I use to two may contribute to the fact it lasts a long time)
The thing I do like about this product is I only need 1 coat during the daytime or 2 if I was going out at night for a bit more drama so it doesn't take ages to apply or use a lot. I do have to sometimes remove one or two clumps but this is quite rare and if there is a clump chances are it is so small you wouldn't notice it anyway.
I am a huge fan of the fact it vibrates because it means I don't have to keep moving my hands in all different directions to ensure I've covered all my lashes. It also works the mascara right into the base of the lashes which adds even more length and drama.
This product will stay put all day! I find the only way I can truly remove it all is if I jump in the shower which can be a pain in the backside but at least it means that it isn't going to rub off throughout the day which can only be a good thing right?
I would buy this product again in an instant, even at £15.49 because it really is that good. I get questions all the time about whether my lashes are fake. I would also highly recommend this product to anyone out there. I mean anyone, if you are looking for a mascara then this is the one that you want to buy.
==Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara==
==Why I purchased the product==
Trying my hand at a few different business ideas at the moment and I seem to be failing miserably, where I live you have to apply for a business license and the local police and government officials oversee all of the applications, they only have a certain amount of each business type in a specific mile radius. They do not have English views on competition as we generally view competition as being healthy for business, they believe that only a small amount of a certain type of business should be allowed, they do this to minimise the chances of healthy competition, which is unfair on local consumers as they do not have a wide variety of choice when it comes to buying from local businesses. My latest turned down business venture was importing British cosmetics and selling them at discounted prices, unfortunately there were "too many" other existing companies that offered the same, unfortunately I am yet to find one. The local shop sells budget make up which you could purchase from England for under £2.00 and they somehow get away with charging well over the odds for the same product. I bought a box of these Maybelline mascaras from British wholesalers, when I found out I wouldn't be able to get a license I decided to keep some products for myself and then sell the other products off in bulk to local beauticians.
The product itself looks very stylish, it has a modern look and the tube is a standard shape but the colours give the product its smart look. The tube itself is black with gold writing, the mascara wand is a typical shape but when cleaned thoroughly it is a bright yellow colour, I can't understand why they have done this as the colour is never going to be noticed so they may as well have used a dull plain colour. The product contains 6.5ml of product and I find that this lasts me for a couple of months with constant usage. In the lid, which is attached to the mascara wand is where it gets particularly funky; each mascara comes with a battery to "fuel" the vibration of the wand. When you first use this product you have to remove the battery cover, it is very simple to do and you can find instruction on the back of the cardboard packaging if you have any problems. The battery has a good duration and I have found that I have not need to replace the battery before the product runs out which is good as you are not facing additional charges. There is a small button on the lid in which you press to activate the vibration.
==Application of the product==
The product is very easy to apply, you simply untwist the lid and remove the wand and brush the lashes in an upward motion until you have even coverage. The product comes out in the right amount needed so you do not need to spend time trying to remove excess product from the brush. If you wish to use the vibration to extend lashes further, you need to press and hold the button on the side while repeating the action described above. It does feel peculiar at first but you do get used to it, I feel the product is good enough without the vibration of the wand, but it does help create a longer, fuller lash. The product could have been improved if you could just click the vibration on and off instead of having to hold it down when you are applying the mascara, this is what makes using the product a bit tricky for the first couple of goes, bear with it as it does become easier with practise. Overall, my lashes do look longer, thicker and darker I think this is one of the best products on the market at present especially for a "high-street" brand. The product lasts all day but it is better to re do your make up in the evening for a fresher/cleaner finish. In comparison to other Maybelline products I would say this product is leagues above the rest, I have tried many Maybelline mascaras and have been disappointed with many of them, and it's great to finally find one that I get good results from. The product is available in both black and brown the product I have reviewed was the black version.
==Removal of the product==
Normally, I use baby wipes to remove my make-up, however, this product has a bit more staying power. It comes off easily in the shower but if you are wanting to remove it without showering I find that first using a baby wipe and then using a cotton pad with make-up remover will remove any leftover mascara.
==Availability of the product==
Unfortunately this product has been discontinued, so it is unlikely that it can be found on the high street. However, the product is available for between £2.00 and £4.99 depending on where you purchase it from. Many online retailers stock this product, with a quick Google search it will bring up all the retailers in which you can purchase this item from. Failing that Amazon UK currently stocks this product and they offer free delivery with every purchase.
I am giving this product a 5 as even though the product has a slight floor, in that the button could be more efficient if you could turn it on and off, the product achieves a lot and I find that the affects I receive from the product outweigh this problem. I would recommend this to anyone who likes good value mascara.

Today I am going to be reviewing the Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara
This is the first vibrating mascara to come from a mainstream brand that is sold in boots/superdrug etc.
The pacakging is very nice, it is all black and gold. The wand is very nice, its very thin, it works well in your corners and does get all your lashes. On the back of the card it tells you all the instructions on how to work it.
You have to pull off a little gold tab and then the wand will work. You just press a little button and the wand starts to vibrate. The vibrations are quite powerful and it can be too powerful.
When using this mascara, I get really nice, long , thick lashes but it's not clumpy. I generally apply two coats of this when going out or just one if I'm just staying at home or just going to town. If you apply three, t will get cl
I love this mascara so much ! I have been wearing it since the day I bought it. The vibrations really do effect the overall length of your lashes.
It's great for those of us who want crazy lashes when we are out on the town !
Whilst browsing my local make up store for a new mascara I was intrigued to come across this Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara by Maybelline. Now this mascara is not one I set out to buy I had never seen it advertised or heard anyone else mention it before but I thought I would give it ago. I like to swap and change my make up brands and am not loyal to one company I think change is good especially if you find a great product. This mascara cost me £3.99 from the market store I believe they are around the £6.99+ mark in stores.
Mascara as I am sure you will know is meant for on your eyelashes to give them definition and bring out your eyes - I have quite long eyelashes but they are not really what I would call thick so every little helps.
So what makes this mascara different from the others?
Well it vibrates of course. The mascara from the outside is long and thin like other mascaras but at the top on the lid which is attached to the brush is a small lever button which when pressed causes a slight vibration through the brush to the tip of the bristles don't get to excited its not a crazed vibration more of a light pulse. When you open the mascara you have to remove a gold foil sticker to activate the battery and away you go.
Now I have been wearing mascara for years yet having this vibrating totally threw me when it came to application I felt all confused as to how I should be holding the brush and how to press the button at the same time as applying - to many jobs for one go so early in the morning. Once however I had the hang of it its the same as any other brush you would use.
The box says 'Alluring length'
I say I disagree my lashes look the same length as they would with any other mascara I have used before.
The box says 'Smooth definition'
I say I agree there are no clumps on my lashes and each one looks smooth.
The box says 'Shapely Curve'
I say I disagree this statement makes me think of lashes curling over at the end mine just look normal.
The box says 'Luscious thickness'
I say I disagree my lashes look smooth but not thick.
The box says 'Clump Free'
I say I agree.
The box says 'Intense colour'
I say my eyelashes look black intense may be taking a little far though.
The box says 'Shine'
I say I agree this is a mascara however I would explain as a 'wet one' when applying I have a problem that I sometimes sneeze after applying mascara strange but true I don't know if any other ladies can relate to this now some mascaras are ok when I sneeze this one however takes longer to dry and therefore I end up with black marks around my eyes not a good look.
This mascara brush supposedly vibrates 7000 times a minute it is one of those brushes which is plastic with the little bumps on it the mascara itself is enriched with jojoba oil.
Oww it burns
Wearing this mascara over the past few weeks I have found that my eyes have become sore around lunchtime and I have had a burning sensation on my eyelids mainly the bottom ones. I do wear contact lenses but I am wondering from reading the box of the mascara whether the added jojoba oil may be responsible for the burning sensation as I never had problems with other mascaras in the past in this way.
I find the vibration function of this mascara actually quite pointless and from using the mascara with the vibration and without I can not see the difference in my lashes between the 2 application techniques.
I will give this mascara a 3 as it is quite easy to apply once you have the hang of it, it is clump free and I am not going to take the burning for myself into consideration as this is a maybe a personal allergy to something in the product.
Happy shopping I hope you found this useful.
I first started using this mascara about a year ago and I have to say I am totally sold! I am now on my third tube of the stuff and cannot rave enough about how much I love using it. So without further ado, I will list the reasons why you should definitely give this a go if you are looking for a new mascara.
The concept for this mascara is basically that by having a wand which vibrates as you apply the mascara it will avoid the eyelashes clumping together. I have to say this is very strange the first time you use it, it kind of tickles, but after I was used to it I found that this was a good concept and gives much better results then simply wiggling the wand with your hand as you apply mascara. The handle of the wand has a small black button on it which you press down as you use the mascara and this causes it to vibrate. One concern I intially had was whether the battery would last as long as the mascara but luckily I have never had a case where the battery has run out.
The mascara shade I own is blackest black and I will agree that this is indeed a very strong black which looks glossy on the lashes. The consistency of the mascara is quite wet so it does take a few seconds to dry and set, but I think that this allows layers to be built up easier then trying to apply a layer over dried mascara. I find that after two layers of this mascara my lashes are incredibly long and thick, in fact I have had comments asking if I was wearing false lashes! The mascara doesn't flake off into my eye as some have in the past, it also stays put all day and doesn't end up under my eyes!
The price of this product may be a bit of a shock considering it is a drugstore brand, but bear with me. This normally retails at £14.99 which is a lot to pay for a mascara, but I have recently found that this mascara has been cropping up in cosmetic outlet stores for around £7 which is great for those of you who live near an outlet. I think you would also be able to find it discounted online as well, it is retailing on amazon for between £4 and £7. The mascara is otherwise generally available from Superdrug, Boots etc.
I would throughly recommend this mascara, especially at it's discounted price. It gives me amazing length and volume, doesn't clump and doesn't flake off or end up smudging. The one downside is that it can be hard to remove with wipes, you might need to use a dedicated eye make up remover. I use Liz Earle cleanse and polish and this removes it brilliantly.
I had heard about this mascara through a friend who swore by it so I had to give this a try. I am really fussy about my mascaras - I have wasted so much money on brands that can't deliver anything near what they have promised but this was a new one on me - and luckily I managed to get one from a make up discount shop for £9.99 so saving myself £4 which can't be a bad thing!
As soon as I got home I wiped off my eye makeup as I wanted to try it on squeaky clean lashes for a true result. I had a few presses of the on/off button at the side - I thought it seemed a bit vigorous - but when I applied it to my eyelashes it felt nothing more than a pleasant tickle. I wiggled the brush along and underneath my lashes a couple of times and I have to say I had been transformed from a 'barely there lashes' sort of girl to a full on fluttering seductive babe! I even called a few friends to tell them they HAD to buy this product.
I was really pleased with how long it lasted too and when I had used up the contents I must admit I used the vibrating brush in a redundant mascara that I previously gave up on, with results almost just as good. Definately worth every penny and even if I had paid the full price I would still say it was worth it.
The only down side I found is that after a few uses the mascara seemed to gunk slightly round the lid, but easly cleaned off if you have a wipe to hand. This is one of the few mascaras that I have actually purchased again.
As a young child I would see something advertise o TV and want it. Now that child is all grown up but If i see something on TV , I still want it!
What is it ?
so this is a mascara but no ordinary mascara , this one vibrates!! yeah you heard me right! so on the cap there is a small button to click ad it makes the wand vibrate. the first on market.
Packaging & The look ?
It comes in a blister pack , you know the plastic that is so hard to open.
The mascara is i a black tube with gold writing on it , looks very nice! the brush at the end is narrow with fine bristles on the brush. oh and mine is in very black , I don't know if there are any other colours sorry.
for a drugstore mascara I think it's over priced , I got mine on Special for £9.99 but it retails for £15.50! when you can get high end mascaras for £20 ect So I would only buy on special.
What's it like?
I love it. the vibrating wand really separates your eyelashes ad makes them look longer. the vibration does tingle on your eyelashes a little. I personally love it and love the way it makes the eyelashes looks but I would only buy on special as I think it is a bit pricey for drugstore!
o ciao and dooyoo.
As one of my recent birthday presents, I received Maybelline's Pulse Perfection Mascara. Although it was a present, I had still seen the numerous adverts for this, and this what Maybelline claims this mascara will give you:
It's our first vibrating mascara. Transforms your lashes to perfection.
* Patent-pending elastomer brush vibrates 7,000 times per stroke
* Provides clump-free definition, intense color, and shine
* Waterproof; also available in washable formula
* Builds lash volume, length, and adds curl
* Buildable formula
* Ideal for All Skin Types
* Contact lens safe
As someone with long lashes I am not always in need of the lengthening aspect, however I like my mascara to build the thickness of the lashes and darken the colour, so I was keen to see if this mascara lived up to it's claims.
Upon first glance, the packaging is a little sleek and mysterious looking. With black and gold detailing, and then a clear plastic tip whereby you can see the motorised part which powers these vibrations.
To activate the vibrations, you have to press a gold tab on the handle, where you would normally hold the mascara. After seeing the adverts I was expecting to have to do this cautiously, as afterall it vibrates 7,000 times per stroke! Who where they kidding?!
The vibrations are minimal, and you can only just tell it's moving if you watch the wand very closely... certainly not how the adverts portray it to be! When applying this, it does make my lashes tickle a bit which is quite strange, and infact I can only stand it for short bursts.
In terms of is it better than any normal mascara? Well based on the overall finish, I would say it's no different to any normal, non motorised mascara on the market. The results are a little similar to my Dior Blackout mascara, as it does give a very slight lift which is difficult to achieve on my lashes because they are quite long. Having said that there is no miracle overhaul of my lashes, and certainly no immediate difference from using a pulsating wand as opposed to a manual one.
I was really grateful to receive this mascara, however when buying for myself in future, I probably wouldn't buy myself this as it's too gimmicky and just doesn't live up to claims. Although it does give a pretty effect which doesn't clump and lasts all day, I don't see how that's different from any other tried and tested mascara out there. If you did want to try this for yourself, I have found it retails for £14.67 (6.5ml) in Boots.
This scared the heck out of me when I first got my mitts on it. I managed to blag a freebie, which was fortunate, as at the time I was poor, and wouldn't have been able to justify £15 on a mascara, vibrations or no vibrations. As it is, I loved it, and have bought it again since. As long as you are open to new ideas, this is the mascara for you.
It looks just like any mascara from the outside, it is the newest in the Define a Lash range, which explains its resemblance to Maybellines popular green mascara.
The brush is the same, its a pecially shaped rubberised brush, meaning you get the flexibility and the strength. The brush will pass easily through all your lashes, giving you a perfect, clump free finish.
Inside the top of the tube is an invisible 'lip' or 'rim' running all of the way around. This effectively cleans the brush for you as you pull it out, no clumps on the brush = no clumps on your lashes. It also means that less air is forced inside as you re-insert the brush, prolonging the life of your mascara.
As for the vibrations, at first it felt like someone was tickling my eyelashes, (not completely unpleasant...) but it takes some getting used to. The overall result was fantastic. The vibrations mean that all of each individual lash is coated quickly and easily. My lashes looked full and thick.
It's also worth it just for the stares you will recieve when applying it...
The Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara is a little pricey at £14.99 for 6.5ml.
The mascara comes in a packet that looks similar to what you would find a toothbrush being sold in. The packaging from the front is very classy: black background with gold on, which looked very attractive compared to most other mascara packaging! The back was just plain white, filled with the information, which you should read because it shows you how to work the vibration and what not to do with the mascara brush which could be important to know as it has a battery in it for the vibration.
The packaging was easy enough to open by just ripping off the cardboard back from the plastic covering. Once the mascara has been opened, you have to pull the little tab to activate the vibrating thing! When I pulled it, I thought I actually broke the mascara to start with until I checked the information on the back of the packaging!
The adverts for the mascara feature a woman with thick black, extremely long eyelashes, which of course I knew weren't possible as no mascara ever does work as it is advertised, but I expected it to be a little better than it actually was. The product claims to 'Transform lashes to perfection: alluring length, smooth definituon, shapely curves, luscious thickness, clump free, intense colour and shine.' but personally, it didn't do much of that for me although my lashes did look alot longer.
The brush is very narrow, making it easy to reach to the very corner eyelashes, which is quite helpful, but it was also quite hard and wirey. The vibrating makes a little difference, but I think it is the actual mascara liquid itself that doesn't help the product.
A friend bought this for me as a Christmas gift, after I had commented on the TV advert for it. Quite honestly, the advert made me laugh and this seemed a pretty ridiculous product- very gimmicky!!
My opinion hasn't changed greatly since I have used it either unfortunately. Thankfully you are able to use this product without the vibrating/ pulsing feature, but I don't particularly like the mascara, gimmicks aside. The brush is quite hard and "wirey", which does mean that it coats and separates my lashes effectively, but it doesn't give me the "full" and voluminous effect that I prefer. The brush is pretty thin though which does allow some precision application- good for inner corners of eyes, or bottom lashes.
I didn't notice any real difference in the end result whether I used the pulse function or not (a little button that you can depress- or not- near the end of the wand). In my opinion it's little more than a gimmick to entice more people to purchase the product, but I certainly won't be buying this for myself any time soon.
