My Mascara Vibrates And I Like It!

Awhile back my daughter returned from the mall with a gift for me.  She brought me some new mascara and she couldn't stop raving about how wonderful it was.  She had tried it herself and then bought some for both of us.  My daughter has eyelashes that make eye models jealous.  I've never seen longer lashes on anyone in my life.  They are also very dark and very lush.  People flip out about her eyelashes everywhere she goes.

She didn't get her eyelashes from my side of the family.  I have thin, blondish lashes and they need mascara to even be visible.  When my daughter told me the price of the new mascara she bought, I thought it was ridiculous.  Now that I've tried it, I think it's worth every penny.

Lancome, I just said nice things about your new product – would you like to send me some for free?

The mascara is called Oscillation.

The mascara is supposed to do all the wonderful things a good mascara does, and it's successful.  The fun part, however, is that it vibrates when you put it on.  The wand vibrates, that is.

Did I just write, "the wand vibrates?"

The vibration is supposed to separate the lashes so they don't all clump together.  My lashes look pretty when I use it.  Also?  The vibration makes them happy!  Let's just be honest, shall we?  Vibration is fun.  Women like things that vibrate.

OK, I'll be even more honest – I like things that vibrate.

I made the mistake of mentioning my delight over my vibrating mascara on Twitter yesterday.  That sure got the Twitter Whores talking!  

Vibrating mascara has a lot of dirty connotations.

Some women asked if they'd need to start buying batteries for their mascara in addition to their other toys.  (No batteries necessary)  One woman commented that only I could find a mascara that vibrated, "talk about multi-tasking!"

What type of reputation do I have?  And why does it amuse me so much?

I was asked if the vibration caused black lines all over my face.  (No)  One reader cautioned me against "putting my eye out" with the vibrating wand.  I've encountered vibrating wands before in my life and I can still see out of both eyes.  That's all I'm going to say about that.

One reader asked if someone might end up doing a porn flick with a vibrating mascara sub-plot.  I'll tell you one thing, there's nothing wrong with slipping the tube into a pocket when you're not using it on your eyes.  Really, what's the harm?  You can have beautiful eyelashes and a smile on your face.

One reader replied to me saying, "But 24, I don't need mascara there!"  I nearly spit water out all over my laptop when I read that one.

Have I ever mentioned how funny all of you are?  I love it!

Do you have a favorite beauty or health care product?  Are any of them as *exciting* as vibrating mascara?

    You know, I’m like your daughter, one of those lucky people that doesn’t need mascara and I don’t use it. But I think this one may be worth a try…

    ROFLMAO @ stoneskin
    I don’t wear much makeup any more; my skin is so dry and sensitive since moving to the Great White North that it is uncomfortable.
    But the vibrating mascara wand? I am Queen Klutz of the Universe; I’d blind myself for sure.

    ROFL @ stoneskin and “But 24, I don’t need mascara there.” Made me laugh out loud at work. Try explaining that!! Thanks for the chuckle this morning.

    Clinque has a product out called REDNESS SOLUTIONS and for any lady (or gentleman!– don’t forget the guys) who suffer with redness or in my case rosacea this stuff really works, and I was a skeptic. But it is a yellow mineral powder (the only problem I can relate to the product is that it is drying and if you have rosacea and have the patchy dry areas it can highlight that problem which is NOT good) but it does reduce the redness — still it’s not quite as much fun as a vibrating wand!

    Do you think I could achieve the same results if I drink a bunch of caffeine and get the shakes before I apply my regular mascara?

    Ha, that was really funny, or better said, you are really funny. There are no vibrating mascara wands in Portugal and Spain, and they would be a big hit here. Do you want to start a business?

    I keep seeing ads for it and I think I want some : ) How much is it exactly? Do you remember? I have a favorite mascara from Este Lauder that is about $2O. It is so good.It is worth every penny. I haven’t been wearing make up since the spring though when my allergies went insane. Even reading about mascara made my eyes water. How wierd is that?

    Vibrating mascara? All I can imagine is holding the vibrator, er, mascara up with one hand while halding your arm with the other hand to keep it steady lest you write something crazy all over your face!

    My daughter and I took one look at that vibrating mascara commercial and then at each other and said, “NOT!” But you like it, eh? I’d be afraid I’d poke my eye out, or like Margaret said, end up smearing it all over my face. It’d be like defacing my face with graffiti.
    P.S. You’re right. I like anything that has “vibrator” in it.

    Ha! I’ve heard of the vibrating mascara a while ago but haven’t known anyone who actually uses it. But then again, I’m a hickville girl in Kentucky, what do I know?
    I like the idea of slipping it into your pocket when it’s not being used on the eyes.
    How fast does this thing vibrate anyway? Is there a G-spot in the eyes?
