What’s with all the buzz on mascara? I recently received Spinlash to try out, which I have yet to test (but now I think I better try this stuff ASAP). Today, WWD tells the industry that Estee Lauder is releasing a vibrating mascara, TurboLash ($30.00), July 17th as a Saks 5th Exclusive, but will roll out across the US in December. (And both L’Oreal and P&G seem to have their own in the works!)

Estee Lauder TurboLash Mascara

The cosmetics giant is set to release TurboLash All Effects Motion Mascara, which the brand is touting as the world’s first battery-operated, vibrating, all-effects mascara. It will be launched on July 17 as a Saks Fifth Avenue exclusive.

“There is a relationship between vibration, length, volume, separation and curl,” said Elana Drell-Szyfer, senior vice president of global marketing for Estée Lauder.

“Together, they deliver an unbelievably enhanced first to market product, which we feel is revolutionary.” — WWD

But wait, that’s not all! Lancome’s Oscillation debuts this fall, and yes, the brush–it oscillates!

Lancôme’s Oscillation mascara also is billed as revolutionary by company executives, thanks to its brush that (as the product name suggests) oscillates.

Jean-Louis Guéret, creator of mascara brushes for Lancôme, said he came up with the idea for Oscillation after watching makeup artists at work. While applying mascara, their hands move in a zigzag pattern. So to best emulate the movement, Guéret explained, he conceived a flexible, polymer-based mascara brush that vibrates along its longitude at 7,000 micro-oscillations a second. Getting the battery-powered movement started takes simply pressing lightly on an area of the mascara’s outer tube, which turns on a 3-centimeter motor.

Guéret said that, as the mascara brush vibrates against eyelashes, they become “organized” and evenly coated with a mascara formula conceived with ultrafine particles specifically for the product, which also extends, curls, shapes and makes lashes seem thicker. He claims Oscillation’s Ultrafine Dispersion technology allows mascara to glide easily onto lashes and for rapid application. — WWD

Spinning, vibrating, oscillating mascaras? What do you think? Are you curious about the new technology? A bit fearful of something vibrating coming near your eyes? Will you be picking one, two, or all three of the latest in makeup technology?
