Maybelline Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara review

So I got a new toy a few days ago because Maybelline is having a sale. I was extremely fascinated with this one because its definitely different from the usual make-up products offered.

What is the one thing that you never thought a mascara should be doing? For me, it has to be...VIBRATING! 

Here's the new Maybelline Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara. The saleslady told me the reason it was made to vibrate is to prevent clumping. What's my verdict? Let's go to the details first:

What Maybelline says:
It’s our first vibrating mascara. Transforms your lashes to perfection.
Patent-pending elastomer brush vibrates 7,000 times per stroke
Provides clump-free definition, intense color, and shine
Waterproof; also available in washable formula
Builds lash volume, length, and adds curl
Buildable formula
Ideal for All Skin Types
Contact lens safe

Instructions are in Japanese! But here's the translated version:

How to use:
Step 1: On the mascara cap, pull plastic tab to remove it completely, then discard.
Step 2: Press the button to activate pulsation. Release the button to stop.
Step 3: While pressing the button, place brush at base of lashes and move slowly towards lash tip. Continue applying coats to achieve preferred lash look.
Step 4: Repeat for lower lashes
The brush is made up of tiny, tiny bristles:
The tiny button makes the wand vibrate--A LOT. But surprisingly, you don't feel the vibration when you apply it to your lashes.

After applying, how it looks like on me (get ready for some scary eye shots!):

The main question is, DOES IT PREVENT CLUMPS? I have to admit that it does NOT. See how my lashes are still a bit clumped up? I had to wave the wand a bit more even while it was vibrating to remove them. I honestly don't see the need for the vibrating wand, because you can achieve the non-clump look by not making it vibrate and just applying it as you do with other mascaras.

But still, who can resist buying a different mascara?^^
Good points about this mascara is that it does last the whole day, does not smudge and really elongates my super short lashes.

The Maybelline Pulse Perfection Waterproof Vibrating Mascara is available at any Maybelline kiosk for P699.00 (got mine with a 30% discount, so hurry and buy while their sale is still on!).
