The one thing that I do hate to buy is mascara. I have sensitive eyes so when I do buy a mascara I tend to spend out as much as I can afford to and from a reputable brand in the hope that it will suit me!
I took punt on this because A) I needed a mascara and B) Because it usually retails at £10.00 and was on offer at the time I purchased it for £4.25 so a saving of £5.75 was made and C) I thought it had to be good if they can usually sell it for a tenner a time!
This comes in a very long handled plastic tube, much longer than I'm used to actually though and it holds 10ml of the product and the information on it basically tells us what it is and who by etc and it is nice enough to look at but like I say this is a large sized product.
The Mascara Itself:
You have two colours to choose from which is Black and Brown/Black and I went for the black as that is my usual choice. The brush is long and flexible, not too bushy and the bristles are all of varying sizes.
This mascara promises 24 hour length curl and lift. Now I personally find this to be simple enough to apply and not too faffy. The colour comes off the brush easily, the colour of mine is very black and gives a slight glossy finish. I can wear it for hours without it going too dry feeling or heavy, it doesn't really smudge unless your trying to and it doesn't flake. However the best thing about this though is that it doesn't agitate my sensitive eyes and is simple enough to remove with my usual make up removing routine.
It is said to contain lash sculpting fibres thought I wouldn't say my eyelashes look particularly lengthened though using this it does seem to plump my eyelashes out a little so they look less sparse and I don't find this to curl but I can coax and lift them slightly.
All in all even though I find this doesn't deliver on its all its promises and do find the mascara tube very long. It is a good every day and night time mascara that I can rely on. I don't know whether I would shell out a tenner on but at the price that I got it for I think its very worth that indeed!
Only available from Avon.
I recently stopped buying makeup from shops as I found it far too expensive and from the harsh lights of the shops I found they dried out quicker and didn't last very long. since I've switched to Avon I've found I'm saving a lot more money and the products are generally in a lot better condition and last longer. I've been using the Avon super extend for the last year or so, and I love it! I have quite naturally long eyelashes but this product just enhances them even more! The shade of black is so dark it really makes your eyes pop. some mascara's I find can be quite gloopy and lumpy but I have had no issues with this particular product! I also find with this mascara it doesn't flake off during the day like done other well know brands have been known for, and also isn't irritating on the eyes and is very light, you barely notice it's there!
I purchased this 10ml mascara via my Avon lady last month whilst it was on offer at around £4.50 (I am pretty sure) along with a couple of other items in the reduced range. I use mascara every single day because I have such pale lashes and this is the only item in my make up back which I would rescue if there were a disaster in my home!
I have used most of the branded mascaras over the years with varying results and I decided to plump for this Infinitize one because it looked trendy and seemed to have a good sized brush. I ordered black but I think it was also available in brown.
When it arrived I was a little taken aback by the sheer size of it - I can honestly say that I have never seen such a large one and it won't even fit in my current make up bag. This is not a problem for me though because I have now found that the morning application lasts me all day so I can leave it at home.
Once the top is undone there is a brush which is, as expected, a really good size and it is probably one of the biggest brushes I have ever come across in terms of its length and width. It is bushy and angled which means I can do one eye with only one application before going for a refill for my other eye.
The brush loads well and evenly which makes application far less time consuming than when I have used one of the smaller rather skinny mascaras. The best thing for me is the way the brush is angled so I can reach the lashes at each corner of the eye as well as the main part of my lashes in one application. I find it coats well too and does not make my lashes feel heavy or uncomfortable. I have sometimes experienced bits of lash becoming 'gloopy' or even having to pick off tiny bits of lash from my face but NOT when using this Avon one.
One of the things I worry about is an eye product which make my sensitive eyes become watery but no problem here neither does wearing it make my eyes look or feel tired. It is also easy to remove with eye removal lotion.
I have been using it now every day for a month yet there seems no sign that it is running out or drying up so for the above reasons I will definitely plump for this mascara again if Avon continue to stock it and awarding it 5 stars.
This is the newest Mascara out from Avon. I always buy my Mascaras from Avon and always try the new ones out as they are usually on offer - I like a special offer. I still keep going back to my old faithful Spectralash Mascara though.
This came out on a special offer price of £4.99. I think the usual price is £10 which is the normal price for Mascaras in Avon. If you buy products from Avon yourself you will know often products can be full price 1 book and on offer the next. I take advantage of the offer times.
This comes in a usual kind of plastic packaging. The part where the Mascara is has a slight shape to it but you don't hold that part anyway. Just pull the brush out and apply this.
So how did I find this? Well I found the Mascara to be quite dry and it didn't appear to be wet or glossy when I applied this for the 1st time. The bristles on the wand are shaped and instead of all the bristles being the same length they are lumpy at bits and shorter at other bits. This is to allow to get the wand right in. I was able to coat my lashes fine and in getting right in I think I was able to lift my short, stubby lashes up - I haven't been blessed with long lashes sadly. So although my lashes looked alright I cant say they look all fancy like what Avon claim they may do.
An ok Mascara but I won't personally be buying this one again and back to old faithful I go. Available in the shades Black and Brown/Black
It is very rare that I need to buy mascaras, particularly as over the last few years I have been fortunate to obtain them by way of competitions wins and website giveaways. Whilst I didn't need to purchase any mascara it was when looking through an Avon brochure a couple of months ago that my eyes were drawn to Infinitize, which was half price. In addition to being affordable, it was the claim of lash sculpting, lengthening and curling that lured me into my purchase of the black version with this review discussing my experience with using.
The 10 ml chunky mascara looked fairly appealing to the eye when my representative handed it to me, but when I removed it from the black plastic packaging, a garish orange coloured tube was revealed. It was when I unscrewed the wand and removed it from the tube that I had a real shock, as it was far too long with its measurement of 13 cm, which gave me the impression that it would be difficult and cumbersome to use.
Furthermore, the 3 cm in length brush section, which has been created from bristles as opposed to plastic, offers a rather scary appearance due to its weird looking lumps and bumps, which reminded me of a topiary tree. However, pushing my negative thoughts to the side I hoped that the mascara would meet with my requirements of adding length, volume and curl as well as a high level of coverage, particularly as I was not blessed with long stunning lashes.
I felt rather apprehensive as I lifted the mascara wand towards my eyelashes, as due to its ridiculous length I was unable to obtain a firm and comfortable grip. Whilst the mascara was of a good consistency and didn't over dispense onto the brush, the application to my upper lashes was considerably challenging. I was able to coat the lashes that were of a longer length, but it was virtually impossible to accurately coat the shorter ones located at the inner corners of my eyes. As a result, I found myself blobbing mascara onto my skin with the lower lashes proving to be even more difficult where I knocked the brushes onto my eye ball on numerous occasions, as I could not easily grasp the wand.
The appearance of the brush sections can be described as a slight hook shape, which is covered in bristles of numerous lengths and despite my initial thoughts of it being difficult to use, it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated although it did take a little more time and patience than any other brand I've used. I eventually managed to obtain a good coverage on all of my eyelashes, but it wasn't dramatic enough for me so a further coat was necessary. Whilst Avon claims that the mascara contains lash sculpting, lengthening fibres and curling molecules; all of which will assist in shaping and setting the lashes for 24 hours, I was unable to witness any difference when making a comparison with any of the other brands that I use.
To be fair, the mascara did not clump or deliver any blobbing effect with each of my lashes being perfectly defined and I did not need to reapply throughout the day. Whilst I have used brands in the past that would flake or smudge, I did not experience any issues and the mascara remained intact until I was ready to remove it at the end of the day with some baby lotion and cotton wool.
However, I am bitterly disappointed with Infinitize, as I had high hopes that it would deliver quality results. The issue with the length of the wand is a real problem and anyone who experiences problems with their hands will encounter difficulties when applying. The mascara, which is available in two shades namely black and brown/black, generally retails at £10 and although I paid only £5 I still feel I paid far too much and in all honesty, I wouldn't even pay a pound for such a sub-standard product. As a result, I am only able to award one star with no recommendation.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
