As Amazing As Polish – Estee Lauder Turbo Lash

Welcome to a new series on All Lacquered Up, As Amazing As Polish, where I share with you the beauty products I love JUST as much as polish. Considering my fanaticism over all things nails that’s a pretty high honor so, I’ll only tell you about a product if it’s truly Ah-MAZING! You know, those items that make me jump up and down with joy the way I do over greens.

So I’ve been working on this project that I can’t quite share yet but is very exciting. Part of the process includes testing new products like all the new mascaras from this year; LashBlast, Phenomen’Eyes, Oscillation, DiorShow Iconic, etc. The one that truly wowed me… Estee Lauder TurboLash All Effects Motion Mascara. While all the others have really great qualities that in some ways top the rest, TurboLash outshines them all.

I’ve always been a Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara girl. I stock up on it whenever I hit the CCO (Estee Lauder Cosmetics Company Outlet) and it’s been my go-to mascara since well, I can’t remember. That’s how long I’ve been using it. But now all I can reach for is TurboLash. This vibrating gem separates, lengthens, enhances, etc. All those adjectives you want in a mascara, they’re in the tube. And it does all this without giving you creepy spider lashes or clumps or any kind of lash mess. Like Jem, it’s truly OUTRAGEOUS!

What I love most is that you don’t have to wiggle the brush to get perfect application, the battery powered motion takes care of that for you. The vibrations begin when you twist the cap and don’t stop until you put the wand away. No buttons, no fuss. I’m not a coordinated gal. I’m lucky I can get my polish on semi-straight. So trying to wiggle a brush at my lash line? Forget it! TurboLash does that for you. You just slowly comb the brush through your lashes and viola, like magic, your lashes grow and seperate and curl before your eyes.

What you see above is my naked eye, no enhancements besides a quick squeeze of my Shu Uemura curler. What do you think? A major improvement, no?

Estee Lauder TurboLash retails for $30 and is available at Estee Lauder counters and online at

    sounds neat – how long has the battery lasted? The battery not lasting (to a point) has potential to be good in a way though, might motivate me to chuck my mascara out more often :)

    Good stuff! Must try this!

    Cool feature, Michelle! I have a hard time with mascara, as I seem to react to most brands even ones that say they are hypoallergenic (MAC is an exception for some reason). I am not sure which ingredient is causing this, but I was wondering if you know anything about that.

    Thanks for any info you can give me!

      I would recommend looking at multiple ones that cause irritation (especially ones that claim to be hypoallergenic) and compare the ingredient must to the MAC one…you’re likely to find something that’s common not in the MAC one

    Sounds really cool, but I’m so clumsy. I’m afraid I’d put my eye out!

    Anon – I’ve been using mine since the end of September and it’s still buzzing along. According to the EL site, the battery will die when it’s time for a new mascara which would make me assume it’s good for 3 months worth of uses.

    Katee – I’m way impressed, it’s definitely worth a look.

    Melli – Wow, that’s a shame. What kind of reaction do you have? Have you talked to your doctor about it? I have skin allergies (total PITA) but I take Allegra every day to keep the itching at bay. I wish I had better info for you. I would suggest looking at your MAC mascara and one you know bothers your eyes and see if you can identify what ingredients are missing from the MAC one. Then try looking up the ingredients in the Cosmetics Database and see if you can pinpoint the irritant.

    Silverin – Honestly, if I can use it, you can too. You hold it just like a regular mascara and just brush it through. The vibrations are so minimal, they don’t affect your ability to hold the wand.

    I really love this new feature; as much as I love polish, I love beauty products as well! I find that many polish lovers and makeup fanatics too. =D

    I’d love to know your thoughts on Oscillation and Iconic, both which I recently got (I’m a mascara junkie) I was gonna look into YSL Faux cils, but maybe turbo lash is what I should be keeping an eye out on…

    The new mascara looks neat, but I must say that I am a Dior fanatic when it comes to mascara. I use Diorshow mascara in black as a base and then I use Diorshow iconic mascara on top. The iconic separates and almost moisturizes the lashes so you get big dramatic lashes without the clumps and gooky look– I highly recommend using the combo of the two, it’s hands down the best I’ve tried thus far.

    Love the Jem reference. I’m trying to decide between this and Lancome’s new vibe one.

  9. melli says:

    Thanks Michelle, you are a doll!

  10. Laura says:

    I’ve seen a few similar previews of this mascara, and frankly to be blunt it looks way too clumpy every time I see it.

  11. Daneen :) says:

    Great post…and your eyebrows look fab, btw.

  12. Kellie says:

    Of course your eyebrows are perfect too. I’m getting increasingly jealous. LOL But, I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone with perfect nails. :P
