Avon Super Shock Max Mascara: Great Alternative to High-end Brands

Avon Super Shock Max: before and after

Mascaras… a good one can make a huge difference. A bad one smudges and glues your eyelashes together giving you the dreaded ‘spider legs’ look. It’s my biggest pet peeve when it comes to make up.

I have to say I’m very picky when it comes to mascaras. I like the ones that separate eyelashes and lengthen them without clumping. My lashes are really long and thick so I don’t need too much extra volume. Clinique High Impact mascara is one of my favourite. From the drugstore brands I really like the L’Oreal Telescopic (the original one not the Telescopic False Lash Effect one).

Most experts suggest that you should throw away mascara after 4 months. This is due to the oxygen that gets inside each time you take out the wand. I also heard that you should throw it away when it stops making a popping sound when you open it. So I prefer not to spend too much on mascara.

I tried five Avon mascaras and really liked the Super Shock and the Super Shock Max. I got the Supers Shock Max which is the waterproof version of Super Shock and has a slightly different wand.

I really like it because it defines the lashes and separates them nicely. The brush is way too big for my taste and it can be a bit tricky to use, especially in the corners. However, the non-waterproof one is much better. Still, the final effect is good and comparable to L’Oreal or Clinique mascaras.

Best thing about this mascara? It’s price.

While L’Oreal mascaras retails at £10 on average and Clinique High Impact at £16 and, you can buy Avon mascaras for £4. Not too bad. I found contacting an Avon consultant in the UK a bit complicated but once you found one ordering products is nice and easy. You can also buy it online but you have to pay £3.50 delivery charge on all orders below £20.
