Avon Mega Effects Mascara is a new innovative mascara with a large comb applicator to give lashes, well, a mega effect! Avon Mega Effects Mascara’s “Wonderbrush” bends and adjusts at different angles allowing you to capture all your lashes and produces more darker, denser, dramatic lashes.
Does it work?
Mmmmmmmm it’s ok? Mega Effects Mascara quite reminds me of Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes Mascara just with a different shaped applicator. In some ways the Wonderbrush as Avon dubs it is a lot like the spiked ball the Phenomen’Eyes Mascara has but just in a comb style. The comb has tiny spiked spokes that capture lashes to add length and volume as you comb it through.
The actual mascara is a pocket size contraption that’s a little smaller than a pack of Tic Tacs. You snap off the top and wriggle the brush free from the bottom portion. The actual mascara handle is easy enough to move at any angle you want so you can swivel it up or down but I’m not really sure this really aids any in application simply because I find the handle a little too short to get the best application. The shorter handle is an issue for me and I felt like I had no control over the applicator as I worked and I was a little worried I’d end up poking it into my eye because of this. It combs through lashes alright but I find it makes a mess if I’m not extra slow during the process. My lashes end up sticking together, clumping, and generally looking like I have a goop of mascara on them if I stroke too quickly. The brush has some uniqueness that’s for sure but in theory the unique nature of the brush is a mess waiting to happen.
I’d say it produces nice results on a whole. Lashes are fuller, length is just not bad either, and I wouldn’t say it added or kept curl all that much.
In the end Avon Mega Effects Mascara has more gimmick going for it than anything. You can get pretty much the same results it produces from a drugstore mascara or possibly better results really and you aren’t risking poking an eye out or creating a clumpy mess of your lashes. I don’t have the patience for slow application otherwise I’d say it was quite a nice mascara. I tend to want to get mascara on and done not spend too much time applying and worrying if I am going to make a mess or if my lashes are going to look good that day or if I am going to chance messing up my entire eye look because of some small mistake during the application process!
It’s worth a try if you happen to find it on sale just for the sake of trying it ya know? And who knows really you might actually love it….!
As for me I’ll stick to regular mascaras for now.
Love to hear how it worked out for you!
