Spinning Mascaras are Hot
In New Zealand
NEW ZEALAND: Call it the spinning mas-
caras wars. New Zealand’s beauty coun-
ters were a flutter in December as con-
sumers clamored for these gadgets and
beauty giants jockeyed to be first to mar-
ket. According to reports, Estée Lauder
unveiled its spinning mascara brush in
time for Christmas, although rumors
were TurboLash wouldn’t be ready until
March 2009. Lancôme, which planned to
launch its mascara in late February, was
beaten to the punch, but still benefited
from consumers who quickly added
their names to a waiting list.
