Hi family! I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. Time for another Mascara Monday! This is a first ever for Clumps of Mascara. I’ve never tried any of Avon’s mascaras. Are they hidden jewels or should they just STAY hidden? Check out my review:
Price: 4 out of 5 (about $8.50)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 2.5 out of 5
What it claims: “Unique microfibers instantly expand and plump lashes to larger-than-life proportions…for head-turning drama in a flash. Up to 12x more volume…in a single step. Maximum amount of mascara in just one dip. Molded teal plastic fine combs separate lashes for a precise, bolder-than-ever look.”
The truth: I mean…it’s okay.
What I loved about it: The brush isn’t half bad. I have really become a fan of brushes with these kinds of bristles.
What I didn’t like: While it gave me a bit of volume and length, I was shocked how it didn’t last the entire day. My lashes literally flopped within a few minutes after applying the mascara.
Overall: This is my first experience with an Avon mascara. I was intrigued to buy it being that Shape magazine had labeled it as the “Best Mascara”. Uhhh…so maybe I can chalk my experience up to having a bad tube? Either that or there was some exaggeration in their claims. This mascara is definitely not one of the best. While the brush is pretty effective in getting the lashes out there, the formula is way weak. And I’m not sure why because it isn’t heavy to where it weighs down the lashes. Definitely didn’t get any shock factor.
Would I recommend it: Nay to this baby here.
….so what do you folx, think? Have you ever tried any of Avon’s mascaras? Do they make better ones that you think I should try? Hmmm…
