RED HOT TIP ALERT!
Lâncome is launching a new vibrating mascara. Yes, vibrating. Powered by 7,000 oscillations per minute, the vibrating motion of the wand gets every lash evenly covered while creating serious lash separation and definition.
The Lâncome Ôscillation PowerMascara ($34) doesn't hit stores until December, but on July 31st (that's this Thursday!), for ONE DAY ONLY, Sephora will offer it online.
This mascara won't be available in stores, and after July 31st, poof! It won't be available anywhere again until late fall. In other words, get it while it's hot.
And in case you're curious, here's how it works:
1. Press the button on the wand to activate the vibration
2. Hold the button during application
3. Place the wand at the root of your lash line and comb wand slowly from root to tip
4. Use about 2-3 strokes for a natural look, or glam it up with a few more coats
