I’m getting OLD. There’s just no other way of saying it because it’s the truth. So when I say I’ve seen just about everything when it comes to the world of beauty(well, at least for the past 32 years), I have.
Until now. (Warning, this post might be a tad picture heavy!)
Does THAT look like a mascara to you? But it IS my friends. OH, IT IS.
Say hello to my new little friend, Avon Mega Effects Mascara($12 CDN).
Now, there’s a BUNCH of innovations with this baby that I don’t even know WHAT to start talking about first! Let’s start with the adjustable handle:
The “Wonderbrush” on the Avon Megga Effects Mascara is adjustable and bends so you can get just the right angle to reach each and every last eyelash you have.
The bristles. THE BRISTLES. They are FREAKY.
Here’s a closer look so you can really see the freakness in all it’s glory:
The Avon Mega Effects Mascara looks like a weapon of lash destruction, but actually is designed with bigger bristles than normal to provide more surface area to capture every last lash and give you voluminous lashes. The Wonderbrush bristles comb through every lash, at every angle you can maneuver to give you loads of length and clump-free lashes.
See? EVERY WHICH WAY you can’t LOSE with this brush! I do like how it deposits colour right at the roots of my lashes and makes it look like I have eyeliner on. NEAT.
Avon Mega Effects Mascara is a wetter formula, so it’s quite easily buildable which I like. It’s sweat-proof, really black, and smudge-proof, and apparently flake proof (although I experienced some flaking, on my lower lashes as the day went on). Any clumps are easily combed through with the Wonderbrush and, boy can you ever get every last lash, get them at every angle-it’s kind of incredible actually. There’s a bit of a learning curve for sure when you first use it, and getting it out of the container is a little strange as you need to wiggle the wand back and forth a couple of times. It’s a tad disconcerting, and makes me think it’ll break the wand, but it doesn’t! You also have to really remember to push down and hear the little click to make sure it’s shut tight when you re-insert the Wonderbrush. Also, it might take a few tries to get the angles right so you don’t end up with mascara all over your eye, eyebrows, nose…you get the idea.
Gimmick? Maybe. But it sure does work. And it works WELL. Is it any better than other mascaras I’ve tried? Not really. It’s something to experience though! Here’s the ingredients on the back of the box:
The Avon Mega Effects Mascara will be available to order in August from your local Avon Rep by calling 1-800-265-AVON, or by ordering online at www.avon.ca. Although, I’m betting you’ll be able to get this one sooner as Avon sometimes releases things earlier! Look out for it!
Whaddaya think? Will you give this a try? Do you think it’ll start a mascara revolution and we’ll see all kinds of weird and wacky brushes? I’m kind of hoping yes! THERE COULD BE FUN TIMES AHEAD.
