I hope you don't find this post too random, being that this mascara was discontinued earlier this year (I think)! However, when I recently found the Maybelline Pulse Perfection mascara in the cosmetics section of TK Maxx I was reminded how this was a mascara that I'd repurchased a couple of times in the past. I'd simply forgotten about when it disappeared from stores!
I remember reading tonnes of conflicting reviews when this mascara was originally released. Obviously the main feature of this mascara is the vibrating brush, something originally done by Lancome and Dior. I have generally always preferred a larger brush, with proper bristles, which does give more volumised look than plastic bristles, but was of course intreged to try out this new idea in mascara 'technology'. Well, as you may have guessed by this not being my first purchase of Pulse Perfection, I really like this mascara!
With a button that requires being constantly held in for the vibration action, this mascara can take a bit of getting used to. Also, and not surprisingly, the thing that takes most getting used it is of course, the vibrations themselves! Following the instructions, and starting by placing the mascara wand at the base of your lashes, does tickle! I always feel like i'm going to sneeze, DISASTER when mixed with wet mascara! I've never actually sneezed using this mascara though, PHEW!
Once you do get used to the vibrations, and operating them, this is such a quick and easy mascara to use. The vibrations distribute the mascara beautifully whilst also lengthening and separating the lashes. Because of the way the vibrations distribute the product, if you're a lazy make-up girl like me, you'll love the fact that this mascara does not need numerous strokes of the brush, the below picture was done with one coat!
More of a day time look, I know, but I think it's lovely. I was so glad when I found it in TK Maxx! Since re-discovering the Pulse Perfection I've had numerous complements on my lashes, each one making me ever so slightly gutted that this mascara is now not so easy to come by!... Luckily a quick google search still brings up a few online stores that still sell Pulse Perfection, for bargainous prices too!
Did any of you guys try Maybelline Pulse Perfection when it was originally in stores?
