Avon Supershock Mascara
Advantages: Cheap, good length
Disadvantages: Fiddly use, grey colour, clumpy
I have had two of these one as a gift from friend after they complained of it hurting their eyes, and another as a stocking filler!
The tube is really thick compared to other brands, I have two different designs and have seen a variety of them online too, The standard tube is normally a very shiny black and I have one with Gold tiger print one the side and one with a pinker floral design so there seems to be a couple you can collect which is cool! The top screws off very easily and the brush is also fairly thick! You can get these from around three pounds or less online but Avon stock it online for £8.50 which really isn't something I would pay for it personally!
I have very small eyes so the clumpy brush did mean I had to have a cotton bud handy ready to wash off an extra black blobs, I can be fiddly to get into the really inner eyelashes, so I would have liked a less thick brush, But after one application you can defiantly see a big difference and my eyelashes looked very long but not too thick, on the second and third go they started to get thicker but also clumpy and started to look very spidery and not the look I wanted, my lashes began to stick together and were not separated, in this case I would only put the brush over once and use it as a daily mascara!
I really love my mascara to be the darkest of blacks, but this mascara started off nicely but went a murky grey after a few hours! This mascara doesn't seem to give any kind of curl just length and the volume just seemed to be clumps, The mascara didn't look very healthy and always looked like a dry old mascara, considering I had it the day my friend used and received it It really shouldn't have started looking grey at all!
A disappointment really, I wanted black and shocking eyes but I got a grey and murky long lash instead, it does provide a good length though and I have decided to use it as a base for my other mascara, so I guess its a massive avoid for people with sensitive eyes (like my friend) and people who want a black but it could suffice as a day mascara or as something to use with other mascaras!
Summary: An okay mascara, but dont pay full price for it!
