Vibrating Mascara - The Verdict

With the launch of any new beauty product from an international cosmetics brand there's bound to be a lot of hype. So it was no surprise that beauty editors from London to L.A were extolling the new vibrating mascaras from Estee Lauder and Lancome as you guessed it ...The Next Big Thing!

Well as a self confessed beauty junkie I was as intrigued as anyone else to get my hands on this so called miracle product. It would mean an end to fiddling with eyelash glue, make my lashes longer and sultrier and what's more it combined two of my favourite things gadgets and make up - so how could it fail to impress right?

Wrong! As the old saying goes if it seems too good to be true it is. I raced into the beauty hall at Harrods and had the lady at the Estee Lauder counter try the "Turbolash All efects Motion Mascara" out on my bare lashes. And.... well I'm not going to sugar coat it it was fine. Ok a bit better than fine it was good but not great. The vibrating efect isn't very dramatic in fact I couldn't feel any pulsating on my actual lashes just n the bast of the mascara wand. My lashes did look fluttery but the effect was more spindly and thin that thick and luscious. So i think I'll be sticking to my trusty Zoom lash by Mac.
