It seems like it has been quite a while since I have done a mascara review. I’m glad that good ole’ Maybelline Pulse Perfection is breakin’ a sista’s hiatus. This is another one of those “highly requested for review mascaras”.
This is the FIRST drugstores vibrating mascara. Well, SpinLash did come out a year or so ago, but this is the first we’ve seen from a big name cosmetic company.
Is it amazing?
Is it everything you thought it would be?
Take a look…..
Price: 3 out of 5 ($14.99—pretty pricey for a general drugstore mascara purchase, but after all….it does vibrate. )
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
What it claims: I can show you better than I can tell you! Here is the packaging’s claim:
What I loved about it: The Define-A-Lash wand. The mascara’s name in its entirety is “Maybelline Pulse Perfection BY Define-A-Lash. So that’s what you can expect as far as the wand’s look goes. Despite not being an enormous fan of Define-A-Lash (check out my review here) I have always loved its wand. It is perfect for ladies with smaller lids/lashes and gets into those small corners beautifully.
What I didn’t like: I found that the vibrating was a little too much….at least for me. I don’t have “sensitive eyes” but the vibrating even had my eyes welling up a bit. I also found that it tends to get a little clump-alicious around the 2nd coat. Three coats is definitely a no-no with this mascara as you will certainly be entering Clumps City
Overall: Despite the two or so downfalls I am CRAZY impressed with this mascara. Maybelline has always managed to impress me as far as mascaras go and Pulse Perfecting definitely takes the cake as my favorite Maybelline mascara.
Wait…no, maybe not. I am still married to Lash Stilleto but don’t tell Mr. Pulse that. HA!
Seriously, if you are looking for length, Pulse will give it to ya! Volume? Mmm, it could definitely be better in that department, but it’s not bad. I guarantee that you will be too busy being impressed at the length to even care about volume. I didn’t experience flakiness throughout the day.
I really do wish that I didn’t experience clumps around the 3rd coat—but I did. I wanted to get as much length as possible but Mr. Pulse wasn’t havin’ that. So be careful.
Has anyone tried this mascara yet?
Interested? Not so much? Whatcha think?
A crazed mascara reviewer,
