Are You Buying These Vibrating Mascaras?

There's a considerable amount of buzz about two mascaras: Ôscillation from Lancôme ($34) and TurboLash ($30) from Estée Lauder. The dueling products both promise to add volume, length and curl to lashes through their vibrating wands. TurboLash sold out immediately upon its July debut, and Ôscillation had 21,000 names on a waiting list before launching this week.

Of the two, I've tried only TurboLash. It's a good mascara that delivers natural-looking, long and separate lashes. But it's not as though manually wiggling mascara through my eyelashes is a huge burden, so I doubt I'll replace regular mascaras with vibrating ones permanently. What about you — have you tried these? Are you interested?

I'd rather be more practical and wiggle my mascara wand than buy this.

I agree that it's gimmicky. I know you're supposed to wiggle the brush back and forth when you apply mascara, but I'm thinking I could do it myself...I don't need already-expensive mascara to be any more expensive, thank you.

haha, deanna that is hilarious! yeah, I just don't see how the vibration would have any affect. I'd try it though, why not?

I had a friend try out the Lancome Oscillation one and she said it got all over the place and didn't work. It's an interesting idea for a mascara but if that is supposed to be better than all the rest... then why is Lancome/Estee Lauder/ etc. still selling the other non-vibrating stuff? I think formula is the most important part of a mascara.. well, that and a good brush. I think I brush the mascara on just fine - I don't need that part to be mechanized...And I certainly don't need to pay for it.

I've seen video's of Givenchy's Phenomen and it really does work. I like to controll the mascara because I like more mascara on my outer lashes then my inner lashes.

I use everything MAC except mascara. I use another drugstore kind because I replace mine every 4 weeks. I don't advise using products that do animal testing but the Maybelline Define a Lash wand is amazing. I just keep the wand and use it in my Jane mascara :) Works like a charm. If the wand went side by side it would be more useful than random vibrating. Even with the vibrating wand, I would buy it once and reuse the wand. I used to be a Lancome and Dior fanatic. So many better things.

I've been a Hypnose girl since my high school years. After reading a numerous comments about not needing to spend tons on a good mascara, I decided to try out something cheaper, yet I couldn't fully trust drugstore brands. I went to try Zoomlash by M.A.C, and the result was atrocious. Zoomlash is supposed to be the 'it' mascara which lengthens and gives volume. I eventually ended up getting Givenchy Phenomen. It takes more minutes than Hypnose, but it's great and fun. However, when I finish up my Phenomen, I might switch back to Hypnose. When it comes to most beauty items, there's a reason that it's more expensive.

This just sounds ridiculous.

I just think these are a bit silly. I definitely won't be buying them - I have enough issues keeping mascara off my lids as it is, I don't need extra help! Plus, like CCee said, the control issue is major. I like to control things in any/all aspects that I can. Also, $30-$34 is like two or more of my usual mascaras. The most expensive mascara I've ever bought is Fresh/Firebird at $26. And that's 2x my normal mascara. So no way, José!

I poke my eyes enough with a steady wand, I don't want to think of what would happen if it's constantly vibrating! ouch!

I just bought the lancome mascara, and I LOVE it! I don't have to curl my lashes any more.

I think the vibration would probably make me mess up. I like having control and I don't need it to create great lashes, I can just wiggle the wand myself. I do however want to try the Givenchy Phenomen mascara (yes even more control ;) )

This is too gimmicky for me. Also it seems rather expensive, even Diorshow is cheaper than this.

I agree, the whole vibrating thing is gimmicky, but, I'd still try it.

I'd try it, they're not really any more expensive than Lancome's regular mascaras. And there is a HUGE difference between cheap mascara and expensive. Wear Covergirl or Revlon for a couple days, then try Christian Dior's Diorshow, and you can't deny there is a HUGE diff. I swear by Diorshow.
