Undoubtedly the most anticipated mascara ever, Lancôme's vibrating mascara, Ôscillation, hit counters today. With a waiting list of over 21,000, women can hardly wait to get their hands on this beauty. I, for one, am anxious to give it a try - while still hoping not to poke my eye out.
Thank goodness Lancôme sent over some great tips and tricks to using Ôscillation. These should definitely come in handy for any of us deciding to give this new mascara a try.
--The key to great results with Ôscillation is a certain application technique. Apply in slow, straight and steady strokes.
--Don't zig-zag and don't wiggle!
--Don't overpump the wand. There's plenty of product on there for multiple coats.
--If at first you don't succeed...don't give up! Ôscillation takes a few tries to get the hang of it.
--Ôscillation is great for the lower lashes, so don't forget to apply there.
Once you get your application method down, there are a few tricks you can try. Apply and then go back and re-apply to the tips alone. You can get amazing length. Or try this tip that a celebrity makeup artist shared with us. Put the wand right at the base of the lashes, activate the vibrating action and hold in place for a few seconds. Then slowly sweep to the tips of the lashes. It gives you beautiful thickness at the base and lots of oomph.
