I was really surprised by this product! I read some reviews prior to purchasing and thought "no way this can't be this good!". I was wrong! The tiny little bristles on the brush are true and yes, very tiny but they do its job well. I think this brush suits my lashes since they are fairly short and gets around my small eyes in rapid speeds. I found out the hard way that large mascara wands really don't do well for my eyes so i think i'll stick to this mascara for now. No smudging or flaking through out the day so that makes it better! Gave it only 4 stars cuz you have to either buy this mascara through avon.com or through an avon rep so its not readily available at any random drugstore. But for the price its worth doing the extra work to buy it!
Recently I was at the mac store and the makeup artist suggested me to try to fill in my brows. She used the Impeccable Eyebrow pencil and the cost was $15. Woah, no where in the world would I pay $15. I came home on a mission to find a good dupe for the dirty blonde color that I tried on. After a little research online, I found define-a-brow! So glad I found this because the dark blonde color matched perfectly! The eyebrow pencil has this little comb at the end that is pretty useless. I suggest just using your finger and smooth/soften out the color throughout your brow.
I was really excited to try this mascara out after all the rage online and from the commercials. Now I understand why the reviews are just mediocre! The brush is whoppin' huge and pretty difficult to work with esp. if you have short lashes. Don't even try working with this on the lower lashes! Prob will not repurchase. Sorry Lash blast!
For the first 2 weeks I used this mascara I thought i found the best one! Really, i thought this was going to be a staple in my makeup routine. Initially it made my lashes nice and thick, just what my wimpy thin lashes needed. Well it failed on me after a little bit of time. I'm sad because I had high hopes for this! Over time the brush was picking up way too product and I had clumps galore. I really can't handle using another item (ie.lash comb) in my morning routine just to get the clumps out. Item will be returned.
Wow! This mascara is awesome! I really doubted how good this can be because there was a lot of mixed reviews for the Supershock. My eyelashes are really long and thick but not overly fake looking at all. It's just what my tiny thin lashes needed. Will def. buy again because it's very decently priced when its on an Avon catalog special (sometimes as cheap as $3.99). Only thing I don't like about it is the tube is pretty big and I hate wasting product especially if mascara should be thrown away every few months. *edit ( about 2 weeks after). Gotta dock some points off after a little bit of time using this product. For some reason this mascara is really runny and leaves a smudge like mess under my eyes after a short period of time. I found myself having to check myself in the mirror every hour or so to wipe off the excess mascara. Not good for me. Looks really good once you put it on just not good later in the day. Won't be repurchasing.

Love the bright packaging! Too bad the mascara formula did not meet my expectations. It was too wet, took too long to dry, added no volume, and the brush was too flexible. Returned after a few days of trying it.
This mascara did what I wanted. It lengthened nicely and added volume. Only problem...i couldn't handle the smell! I thought the scent would linger away quickly but it lasted much longer. So much longer that I was getting slightly light headed. This product went in the garbage the 3rd day I tried it!

It was time to get some concealer to cover up some blemishes and under eye circles. Did a little research and was looking for something gentle and with natural ingredients. This really did not work with my skin. Like some others said that it was pretty drying. At first it blended in nicely but as the day progressed, it made my skin flake and I have really oily skin. Will not repurchase. Product returned.
I had high hopes for this product. After a few days of using it, i just couldn't get myself to like it. It flaked on me by mid day and I don't have the energy to stop in the middle of the day to fix my makeup. Product returned back so I can get my $ back.
I love Carmindy, who doesn't? I like this blush, nice and sheer and works great as a base for your powder blush. Will be repurchasing when I run out, whenever that is because this will prob last a long time.
This mascara was just okay for me. I liked how it made by lashes look nice and natural. By mid day it got smudgy. I can't handle mascara that does not stay in place. Sorry, won't be repurchasing.
Disappointed with this mascara after reading great reviews here and from friends. :( Too bad, I had high hopes for this. Volume and lengthening okay, major smudging for me by mid day. Even though its not waterproof, it should atleast be smudge-proof. I did like the packaging! Metallic purple is hard to miss if your makeup bag! Too bad, won't be repurchasing.
Great overall blush! Not too sparkly and gives just a hint of color which is all you need. Will be repurchasing again!
