Avon Supershock Mascara
Advantages: Volumises, lengthens and refines for gorgeous black lashes
Disadvantages: The smell is unpleasant and overpowering
I've always been a big fan of Avon cosmetics, one for their high quality products and two for the fact that they always seem to be on sale! Flipping through the Avon catalogue this time, I saw that Avon's supershock mascara had been reduced to a mere £3! I just had to buy it and test it out.
The mascara comes in a rather chunky black tube, with a gorgeous pink lace pattern printed on it, next to the logo. The top is a screw on screw off lid which holds a thick mascara brush. Unlike other mascaras, this brush has little silicone spikes as opposed to a regular brush, which helps to get and even coating on all lashes. It not only also prevents clumps because of the refined gaps in between spikes, but combs lashes to get a fine but volumised look - just like in the catalogue!
The product itself promises a thickening base coat and volumising mascara in one, and I have to agree that it definitely delivers! The mascara also lengthens lashes, whilst refining and volumising them. It only takes a couple of coats for me to get the desired look, as the colour is such a solid black. The only downside is that as soon as you open the tube, you are greeted with what can only be described as not the most pleasant smell in the whole wide world. It is rather overpowering, but disappears as soon as it's on lashes. It is naturally waterproof, so brilliant when going for a jog or when swimming, but makes it little harder to take off at night.
What you get for the price is amazing! I got this from an Avon catalogue at £3, where it normally RRP's at about £8, and that is one of it's fantastic selling points - it always seems to be on sale. Avon always seem to be cutting a portion off its original price in the catalogue, so I'd recommend buying when on sale to get a real bargain!
A great daily mascara that lengthens and volumises lashes whilst also separating them, leaving no clumps! It does have an overpowering scent, but the price is an absolute bargain!
Summary: A mascara that really performs!
