Vibrator For Your Lashes?

Lancôme Ôscillation - Vibrating Infinite Powermascara

Think your eye ball will enjoy the vibrations?

I just got an email from Sephora announcing that the Lancôme Ôscillation Vibrating Infinite Powermascara is now available (while supplies last) for one day only as a “preview” for when the mascara will actually release in December. Is it just me or does it seem like makeup and beauty companies will try any sort of new gimmick just to make some money? I’ve heard about this damn mascara from other beauty bloggers, but when I saw the fact that the wand “vibrates”, I lost interest. I just have this mental picture of the wand vibrating all over my eye ball and instead of having lengthy, full, luscious lashes, I’ll have mascara all over my perfectly applied eyeshadow! Now while I’m sitting here laughing at myself cause that picture in my head does look rather funny, I know deep down that if this really happened, I’d be pretty pissed! Maybe I’m missing something, but I just don’t understand the whole concept behind a vibrating mascara. Perhaps some of you could enlighten my feeble mind to the awesome wonders that Lancôme has blessed upon us for one day only.

According to Sephora’s description:

What it does:
This revolutionary mascara provides 7000 oscillations per minute for ultimate lash transformation. Press the button and experience a breakthrough sensation in application. In one easy new gesture, let the vibrating brush combined with an exquisitely smooth formula wrap every lash up to 360 degrees.

What else you need to know:
With ÔSCILLATION Vibrating Infinite Powermascara, your lashes will instantly appear ultimately extended, exceptionally separated, and spectacularly multiplied in number.

I’m debating about getting it out of pure curiosity, but that $34 price tag sure is keeping my finger in check from clicking that buy now button. I guess if it’s even just out of curiosity that people buy the product, then the makeup companies have something going for them. What do you guys think?

    Yeah. I recieved that email from Sephora as well.
    I was kinda curious to see what it’s like,
    I mean… vibrating mascara? Seriously?
    But, I doubt it’s any good, so unless you’re a true magic make-up mastermind, this mascara probably isn’t any good.
    And most teen[meee!] make up users aren’t all that great.
    Not that some aren’t amazing.
    But as you said, the $34 dollars?
    Neh.
