Avon Supershock Mascara
Advantages: nice brush, easy to apply, gives my lashes nice length
Disadvantages: overpriced at original brochure price
I seem to have a seemingly long list of Avon mascaras and one of the more recent additions is this SuperShock mascara from Avon.
- Packaging -
Mine must be an updated version, (or christmas inspired( as it comes in a pretty glam red tube, decorated with stars all over and written in gold Avon SuperSHOCK mascara. It is a 10ml tube so is actually rather large but I have no problem with it fitting into my cosmetic purse, despite it's chunky appearance.
- Brush -
As per usual with mascaras, the brush is attached to the lid inside and it is more of a plastic brush with small bristles protruding, gathered quite close together. The mascara brush is not fully coated with heaps of mascara so you can actually see all the even bristles perfectly.
- Application / Results -
The brush is really easy to apply and for the fully coated look I like on my lashes this brush does the job perfectly. It glides through my lashes from roots to end easily without pulling/tugging on my lashes or leaving blotches of mascara on my eyelids. My lashes don't look tremendously shocking or mega long but they do look more vivacious and I (and more importantly others!) can see I have mascara on lol. The mascara is really long lasting, and whilst it is not advertised as waterproof it doesn't seem to smudge or run and I'm not left with panda eyes when I have the odd sniff or watery eye with this freezing weather! Saying that, it's really easy to remove at the end of the night with some face cleansing wipes or eye makeup remover and a cotton pad. It doesn't irritate my eyes so I think this mascara ticks all my boxes.
- Overall -
This is actually one of my favourite everyday mascaras, as it's simple, effective and gives my lashes some lovely length. I actually paid the (teeny bit extortionate) full price of this in the Avon Brochure of £8.50. I wanted to help my avon lady out as wanted to give her some good commission and this was the only thing I ordered as I couldn't see much else I felt like buying (and you can never have enough mascaras lol). I think for this price it is not really worth it, but it usually comes on offer for a fiver which is much more reasonable value so I think for £8.50 it's not really a premium mascara worth the price, but for a fiver or so it isn't half bad.
