I've actually used this stuff. I think mine was called "Kiss Me" mascara or something like that. I like the way that it stayed ON until you took it off, and then you just get it wet and wipe it off your eyes. My sister called the tubes that come of "spider legs" because that is kind of what they looked like. I didn't actually like the look of it on my eyelashes, though, because it looked kind of thin and spikey or something.
As for the vibrating wand--forget it! I can't see to put on mascara without getting right up close to the mirror, so I'm sure I would jab that vibrating thing up into my eyeball as I was getting situated. Either that, or my contact lens would get all ripped up by it.
The vibrating mascara wand kind of reminds me of this thing:
I have trouble with a round brush and a blow dryer. I can't imagine my hair getting stuck and tangled in a rotating curling iron. I'm fascinated by their infomercials, though.
