Lancôme’s betting their latest vibrating mascara wand will work wonders on your lashes. Ôscillation Intensity PowerMascara ($34) is basically an upgrade of the company’s O.G. Ôscillation, which was one of the first pulsating wands to shimmy across makeup counters.
Like its predecessor, it oscillates an astounding-sounding 7,000 times per minute (dude, that’s a lot!), but Lancôme says this one’s fuller brush helps it wrap each lash with more mascara for a bolder, longer lash look. And the mascara itself? According to Lancôme, it contains the highest concentration of carbon black pigments on the market.

Two coats turn my fringe a fabulous pitch black, but they leave me hanging in terms of thickness and length, neither of which it enhances anywhere near as much as my current mascara crush, a combination of UD Cannonball and Buxom Amplified.
The formula also flakes throughout the day and, as if that wasn’t bad enough, relaxes the curl from my Shu Uemura Lash Curler (BOO!).
With PowerMascara, I think Lancôme has proven that just because something shakes, doesn’t mean it can dance. It looks like my quest to find a fantastic vibrating mascara wand continues!
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Lancôme counters, stores and also online
