Wiggle It, Just a Little Bit! {Giveaway CLOSED}

225 Comments 20 May 2009

If you’re a loyal reader (thank you!) then you know I am obsessed in love with almost any and all beauty products. I’ve mentioned it on Feel Good Fashion and here on Chic Shopper Chick several times, but my one true obsession love is mascara. I currently have 3 different tubes of it in my makeup bag, and I’m not a bit too happy since I came down with pink eye on Monday and now need to throw them ALL out. If you’re a beauty fanatic like I am, you are probably aware of the high-end mascaras that have come out with vibrating varities in the past year or so. However, to date, there has been no “drugstore” version available.


My favorite mascara EVER was actually Maybelline’s Illegal Lengths mascara with a curved brush, but for some (*gasp*) unknown reason to me, Maybelline discontinued it. To make it up to me Thanks to my role as one of Walmart’s ElevenMoms, I was able to try out Maybelline Pulse Perfection (their new vibrating mascara) before it ever even hit shelves (can you tell I felt kinda cool?) According to Maybelline, Pulse Perfection delivers 7,000 vibrations per minute in 7 synchronized actions so lashes are transformed to perfection. Ok, so I know what you’re thinking “… hmm … why do I need vibrating mascara?”. My friend, you have come to the right place, because I have my own personal opinion on the matter! You see, I was taught to apply mascara starting at the base of my lashes, wiggling the brush back and forth until I reach the tips of my lashes. This helps distribute the product at the base (which gives your eyes a much more defined look) and just gives you better distribution of the mascara all around. Pulse Perfection takes the wiggling work out of your mascara routine for you!

Ok, so for the big question…does it work? My answer is YES! I plan to make you a video to show you how much I actually really like it, but alas, I have pink eye, and that video? Well, it would be not-so-hot. So, when I’m looking a little less…erm…pink around the eyes…I’ll make a video to show you why I like this product. However, in the meantime, here is my take on it! The vibrating takes a little getting used to for first time users (or the klutzy variety, as in my case) but it allows the mascara to go on quickly and nice and thick. Quick is definitely a plus for those 5 minute beauty routines! It elongates and thickens my lashes without a doubt, and I really like the way it looks. My only caveat: apply your second coat of this mascara before the first one is completely dry. I waited for them to dry the first time around and ended up with spider lashes. And as my friend Jillian would say, “nobody likes spider lashes!”. However, when you apply both coats after the other, the result is among the best I’ve gotten from any mascara on the market.


This product is not out in stores yet (this is, again, where I feel really cool for getting a sneak preview), but you can find it nationwide starting on May 28th for $14.95. Until then, you can purchase it exclusively from for $12.95. Honestly, I know that $15 for Maybelline mascara seems like a lot, but when you consider that other brands cost up to 3 times as much, plus you can grab it for $13 online? Well, I think it’s really a heck of a deal.

  185. Elisa says:

    Well, not to be redundant, but mascara is the one beauty product I really cannot do without.

    I love lipgloss, but if I have to choose between mascara and lipgloss, I’ll apply the mascara and get a lipbalm instead.

    I love my bronzer/all-over face color, but being in the open can also give you a nice flush, as can a nice workout, a good yoga session, and some other…ehm – activities.

    I also love powder eyeliner for that smoky eye look, but without mascara? Please.

    So mascara is definitely the winner!!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  195. JenniMac says:

    I couldn’t live without my bare minerals. It makes my skin so perfectly creamy, without which it is most certainly not!

    Mascara is my #2 for sure. I wear it, even if I don’t wear my bare minerals. I’m hoping by drawing attention to my eyes, you won’t notice my uneven skin tone or blemishes. Maybe mascara really is my #1.


  196. Tina says:

    I would like to try it too!

    I can’t live without Victoria’s Secret clear sparkle lip gloss – I love it and I always have at least 2 tubes handy!

  197. Shelby says:
