Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara ($15) wasn't my absolute favorite when I tried it out, but reader Adriall Rose had an accident with hers that actually made it work like a dream, and she also has some good application pointers. I'll let her take it from here:
"Okay, I love mascara, so i had to try this one; it's so much cheaper than Lancome's. So I bought it, got to my house and opened it. Immediately, I was disappointed because the wand was bent at such an odd angle, like a question mark. I was worried it wouldn't work. But I tried it and it was amazing! The odd angle is like an eyelash curler, and pushes the lashes into a nice curve with each stroke. My tip is to keep the motor off at first, coat lashes normally, and then turn it on and do it again. It really plumps them up!"
