AVON MEGA EFFECTS MASCARA - REVIEW

by - December 02, 2013

Hey Guys, I've been on the look out for a new affordable mascara which gives me long lasting, covered lashes. I found this one when looking through last months Avon catalogue and couldn't resist giving it ago when I saw the unusual design.

When the product arrived it comes with a full set of instructions on the inside of the box, which is necessary as its not something I have come across before.The instructions give you a detailed step by step guide on how to get the most out of the design.

First impressions are its a lot shorter and wider than your traditional mascara, the shape is more of a rectangle tube rather than round. Its light and compact and doesn't take up any extra room in your make up bag so its ideal for traveling and fitting into the smallest of bags.
 
Once you remove the pink lid you met with a pink handle coming out of the black base. Without reading the instructions you might be a bit confused on how to get the wand out, its pretty stuck in. Give it a wiggle from side to side and you will feel the wand release. You will see the wand is flexible which comes in handy when trying to apply in tricky areas.


Once the brush is removed you will discover the wand is shaped a bit like a paint brush. I have read reviews which claim that the brush is difficult to use but I disagree. I like the fact that you use the brush straight instead of on the side like traditional mascara brushes. You do have to be careful you don't end up poking yourself in the eye as going straight towards your eye does take some getting used to. You'll find you cant pump this mascara, if you need additional product then just put the wand back in and take it out again. 

 The shade is blackest black and the colour is highly pigmented, it really is what it says on the tin. The application is spread easily and evenly across your lashes and your not left with clumps on your lashes. The texture isn't dry and flakey its more watery and creamy which means your not left with flakes around your eyes. 

When returning the wand into the container you just need to make sure you hear it click back into place so you don't run the risk of the product drying out. The product is fairly easy to remove, I would suggest using a eye make up remover to protect your eyes from excessive rubbing if you try to use a facial wash alone. 
Over all I am really happy with this product I think its really interesting and provides you with great dark lashes. I will be re-purchasing this product for sure.   

Have you tried this mascara or have a mascara you couldn't live without?

xoxo
