Review of Avon SuperFULL Mascara by hayeda
Avon's new mascara follows the plastic applicator trend. I bough this in navy and black. I haven't tried the black one yet but my experience with navy mascara has generally been positive. As you can see from the before/after shot, the mascara thickens lashes quite a bit. Maybe even a bit too much, as the individual hairs tend to stick to each other after second coat. But, honestly, that happens to me with pretty much any mascara. I took this picture with no primer, just eyelash curler and 2 coats of mascara, but I think it might be possible to get better results with a primer. The navy color is not very distinguishable, which is a good thing cause light blue mascara looks ridiculous on anyone. This color is ideal to complement a blue-toned eye make-up without looking like a clown. The mascara makes hairs rather stiff, and somewhat stick-like, but that effect is less visible when you wear some other eye makeup such as eyeliner, which I usually do. Truth is, wearing extreme volume mascaras without any other eye makeup is usually tricky, because any clumps will be extremely visible. For such use, I prefer using mascaras that have less dramatic, more subtle effects. But, this type of thickening mascara is more suitable when your lashes need to stand out from the rest of your eye makeup.
Overall, I think SuperFULL is a pretty good mascara, especially for the price (i.e. when you get it on sale). There are some better ones out there, but you need to pay a bit more to get them.
