This flakes off quickly.
I bought this because in 2010 Oprah listed it as a "best" product. It's not best, it's the worst mascara I've tried.
Also, Oprah never disclosed in her endorsement of this mascara that Avon was soon to become an advertising sponsor of her show!
I am loving this mascara. I get great coverage with smooth application and no clumps. The brush makes for easy application. I get no smudges or smears with it and flaking is a thing of the past. It's a great price - as long as I buy it when it's on special - and then I buy 2.
This mascara is definitely one of my favourites. My lashes are quite thick, so I don't need a mascara to add volume, so if that's what you're looking for, I wouldn't advise this mascara. But it does make my lashes extremely long which I love, and it doesn't clump at all, which is something I've found with so many mascara's. It's not perfect, but for the price, it's fantastic and definitely something I'll buy again and again.
to begin with my lashes are long and full. not bragging or anything but its valid to state this before my review.
the mascara definitely lengthens as it claims and separates/defines my lashes very well...also give a little curl even without using an eyelash curler beforehand. as for volume= 0, but i didn't expect it to do this. does not flake or feel clumpy.
key to application: start at the base of the lash and zig-zag the wand up towards the ends of your lashes for best results.
a good day/work mascara but not great for that oomph look for nighttime.
Great for definition and lengthening. Doesn't flake or smudge. The only drawback for me: it doesn't build volume. Overall, a dependable day mascara for work.
Excellent budget mascara. This is also waterproof although it doesn't say that on the packaging. I saw it stated once in the first brochure they offered it, but don't see it in the one I have now. At any rate, it certainly acts like a waterproof. It is very long-wearing with no smudging or flaking, even after 6-8 hours or more. The brush is perfect for my shorter lashes. It doesn't grab and it doesn't seem to clump either. It's a little tricky getting the lower lashes because the brush is straight, but it is manageable. I much prefer this over the L'Oreal Voluminous waterproof mascara I was using previously.
I ordered this about 3 days ago, and got pretty excited when I got this today.
WHEN OPENED THE TUBE AND TOOK OUT THE WAND:
The wand was okay, nothing really bad about it, but I think it was a bit bend-y? Not that it bends when you apply it, but when you push it against the stopper, it sorta bends.
SMELL: Normal, I guess
WHEN I APPLIED IT: First application, I noticed my lashes became defined, but not yet lengthened so I applied it once more; It started to have these clumps and to remove them I applied another swipe of it. My opinions about it? Yes, it lengthened my lashes but it if you don't know how to apply it, you're going to end up with lots of clumps. Oh, and another thing is that, I do not recommend it if you are not experienced with applying mascara since it could really poke you in the eye in one way or another and it takes time for it to dry
AFTER QUITE SOME TIME: It flaked, a lot. It clumped.
OVERALL: It's a nice mascara for lengthening, but not for volume. It does not hold curl well, it actually weighed my lashes down, but it's pretty good with lengthening.
I have tried ALOT of mascara being an Avon Rep I have tried almost every single Avon mascara and this one so far is my favorite. It does not clump, it makes my lashes longer and doesnt get crusty. I really like this alot. I am on my second tube already and just ordered the newest line of mascara from avon to see how i like that one, so far this is one of the ones I recomend from Avon.
This mascara didn't really lengthen my lashes until I put on 5 coats! It's very natural looking and the brush is good but it doesn't really look like I put anything on my lashes at all. I won't be buying again.
This was a pretty good mascara. It didn't clump at all, and the brush was pretty good. It didn't flake or irritate my eyes. It lengthened my lashes a decent amount, and separated well. Do not buy if you are looking for volume. This isn't marketed as giving volume, so don't be disappointed when it doesn't. Overall, a cheap, decent lengthening mascara. I would probably repurchase if I see it on sale in Avon, but I wouldn't consider this hg.
