My Avon Lady gave me this as a gift, and I guess I have mixed feelings about it. The Pros: very black pigment; mostly water resistant; long-lasting. The Cons: tricky, somewhat messy application if one isn't careful; some under eye smudging if worn on lower lashes; the lid does not stay on at all- pops off all the time posing a risk for bacteria or product dry out; flakes a little bit after several hours. I guess because it's difficult to apply I don't use it as often as traditional wand mascara, so I would say that I am grateful I didn't pay for it because it would have been a waste of money. 10.00 USD is rather steep for Avon mascara if you ask me. I will not purchase this product.
this product make me confused sometimes i like it and some other i don't i don't like the package because it been dirty
Don't waste your money. It looked so cool and innovative but it did nothing for me. Wouldn't reccomend it
I'm in two minds about this mascara. I liked (but not loved) it, and if it were cheaper I would likely buy it again (£10 is a lot for a mascara in my opinion). When I have time to apply it slowly and carefully, it is fantastic: volume, length, blackest black lashes. However I wear mascara daily, and I usually don't have much time in the morning to apply it, so I prefer a quick swipe and go formulation, which a long handled mascara wand with a huge brush is perfect for. Even a cheap mascara with a fat brush suits me when I'm in a hurry. So I found I wasn't using this mascara often, and I do like to use them up quickly to avoid any bacteria buildup (bit of a germophobe here). I will keep an eye out for any offers from avon in case I can pick it up cheaper than the rrp, but I wasn't sufficiently wowed to buy it again at full price.
I love this mascara. Love, love, love.
For full disclosure, let me say right off the bat that I do have an Avon Rep. account but I don't sell it unless you count me and my two sisters. I seem to have an obsessive compulsive problem buying bracelets and flavored lip balms so yeah, I have an account. I don't think I've handed out books since like 2004.
That being said, I actually do love this mascara. I didn't really expect to? I thought the design looked innovative if not a little gimmicky. Luckily, I've had no issues with application. I hold the brush carefully at the root of my lashes and sort of push it upwards, like a paintbrush. Luckily, this mascara didn't clump on me at all-- in fact that's why I love it so much. I didn't have to use a lash comb and this is the first time in my life I could skip the lash comb. I love and use many mascara's including Maybelline Soft and Full, Bare Minerals Lash Domination and L'Oreal Miss Manga. I think they're all fine products but I have to use a lash comb regardless -- but not with this! I might have swooned a little there.
I honestly don't know if it's the odd brush or the formula itself but the result, for me, is long fluttery wispy jet black lashes. Seriously! I have awesome siren lashes, starlet lashes. I'm in love. This is basically what I always wished my lashes would look like!
That about covers it. I've read where other reviewers said it worked great at first, and started flaking a few weeks in. This is only my first week using it --honeymoon phase?-- so if anything changes, I'll come back and edit.
I am obsessed with mascara, I have a draw full!
I bought this as I was interested by the new design, and while it took me a few times to get the hang of how to apply it, once I did I thought it was great!
I have long natural lashes that are blonde so I find it hard to find a mascara that really can get to them all but the way the brush is made to adjust I can get every lash!
After using a curling wand, I use a tool where it is a barrier between my lashes and my skin when applying mascara so I dont suffer any product going anywhere it shouldnt, and I liked this so much I bought two back up bottles!
I do sometimes layer it up with another mascara if I really want a massive eye look but day to day this is great by itself.
This product is ridiculous. Was it designed by a man who has never used mascara? It deposits over the eyelid, impossible to apply with a good angle, lid doesn't go on properly.
I really like, but not love, this mascara, because there are a few things that could be better. For starters, the wand is pretty cool. It looks like a mini paint brush in some ways. The mascara itself is really good. The formula adds a lot of thickness to my lashes, but not a lot of length. The brush is good, and coats lashes well without clumping, but can be hard to use for getting inner/outer corner and bottom lashes due to large and awkward shape.
Your lashes will not be spidery, but unless you wiggle the brush during application, they will not be as separated or fanned out as traditional wands. You also kinda have to hold the brush at an odd angle as well, because the swivel handle is impractical and not long enough. Also, the lid is separate from the brush itself, and tends to fall off in my makeup bag because it doesn't 'click' on tight enough. But pretty good for $10.
As an Avon rep myself, I wanted to get my hands on this mascara as soon as it was first available to us. I was very impressed with all the tutorials online on the Representative website stating how to use this product and I wanted to get in on all the action as all the hip young endorsing celebrities were saying this was a great product. Needless to say I wasn't very impressed when I used it. It doesn't do anything for my lashes, didn't separate nor lift. It was as if I didn't even have mascara on, so I had to combine the use of this mascara not with Avon's Drama mascara to enhance my lashes. I have natural black lashes and I blame most of the mega effect's resistance on that fact. But still, I was disappointed as everyone was telling me this was the next best thing. It did not look good to me that even the cap of the mascara wouldn't lock into place, exposing the handle. It is a rather tiny device in comparison to most conservative mascaras as this is only about 3 inches in length - making it harder for some people to apply. Granted, the handle does bend to suit your application needs. In conclusion, I didn't get the results I expected out of this product and I believe a great deal of marketing sucked me into buying it in the first place. Avon's other mascaras are a lot better.
Really didn't like this mascara at all! Considering the price, I wasn't impressed with the clumps and artificial look :/ do not recommend
