All right, so Dior would have you believe that the next step in the evolution of mascaras is, wait for it, a spinning brush applicator.
They are charging you over ten dollars more for the spinning brush as compared to the “old timey” non-spinning version of DiorShow.
I know that some people may be truly passionate enough about their mascara to try this, but I’m going to put this one in the category of gimmick. The advertising claims that the spinning brush will apply the mascara just like a professional makeup artist, but I’ve yet to see a professional makeup artist sit there and twirl the wand around and around and around. I would describe it as sort of wiggle as they go up and maybe twirl just a bit rather than a constant rotating. Have we become so lazy that we can’t rotate our own mascara wand?
I’ve always been skeptical of brands who tout the wand/brush as the big improvement, rather than the mascara itself. Granted, a clunky wand/brush doesn’t make things easier, but it certainly isn’t the end of the world. I’m trying to think of why a double helix brush would be ever so much better than a regular one, and I can’t think of a reason right now. But, it is also really late. Maybe it will come to me in a dream tonight.
So, would you be willing to pay extra for a spinning brush?
I wish they would just work on the formulas instead of the applicator. You see, I want a waterproof mascara that won’t irritate my sensitive, contact-wearing eyes, makes my lashes fuller, longer, thicker, won’t ever flake or clump and goes on like a dream.
I’ll let you know when I find it.
