- Start - Pull plastic tab to remove completely then discard.
Now, to me a "plastic tab" is actual plastic, so i instantly looked at the top of the mascara to find the plastic section (where the battery is enclosed) i couldn't see a "tab", in hope of finding some clearer instructions i logged onto the Maybelline website and found an all singing, all dancing (ok maybe not!) demonstration on how to activate the vibrations and it turns out all i needed to do was remove the sticker which was around the battery section of the mascara! A sticker is not the same as a "plastic tab" in my books, but hey ho, what can you do! :)
Moving swiftly on . . . .
In terms if packaging i think it looks good, but it's nothing special but to be honest, a vibrating mascara kind of sells itself - you hardly need fancy packaging to intice people further! I've noticed that the American version of the Pulse Perfection mascara has a black top instead to enclose the battery, while us UK buyers have the transparent top. I personally think the black top looks more professional and less intimidating!
I used this mascara for work this morning and i really like it! I find that with just 2 coats i can achieve noticably volumized and lengthened lashes and the vibrations are easy to control and handle. My all-time favourite mascara is Rimmel's Sexy Curves Mascara, it's an item which i re-purchase time after time. So how does the Pulse Perfection compare? Well in my opinion i think the Pulse Perfection is definately on the same wave length, but for £14.99 so it should be!
Is it really worth it, or is it just a gimmick? I do love this mascara and will very much enjoy using it, but i don't think i will re-purchase as i cannot justify paying out £14.99 for a mascara when a £7.99 Rimmel Sexy Curves can do a similar job, i think this product is overpriced and think that because of this it will not get the exposure it deserves, it IS a good mascara but in my books it isn't worth the rather hefty price tag!
A vibrating mascara, whatever will they think of next, a roll on foundation? . . . . . oh wait!Felicity xo

Embarrasingly, i've only just started watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians (i'm currently on Season 1 Episode 4) but i'm loving Kim's look, i've been researching her on the t'internet and love how she conveys quite an elegant yet chic look. Kim tends to keep to neutral colours which she knows suit her complexion, when Kim does inject some colour into her outifts its usually by a slick of red lipstick to make her outfit pop!
Feel free to use post your own "Style Idol" series, hey maybe it could become a tag?!
Hope your all well!
