Avon.com has a Flash Sale today for 30% Off so I decided to head on over and see what was new. Oh, wait there’s nothing new! We discussed that last week didn’t we? Haha…!
But seriously, I headed over because I thought Haiku would be on sale. No such luck.
But I ran across Mega Effect Mascara and it was such a blast from my beauty past.
Picture it, August 2013, Avon releases the wildly intriguing Mega Effects Mascara. It’s large comb-like applicator thrills, excites, and worries us all but our worry doesn’t prevent us from wanting to try this new way to apply mascara.
There’s been some wild and crazy makeup over the years hasn’t there? Mega Effect didn’t quite work out but no one can’t say it wasn’t an interesting and unique idea. And no one can’t say it wasn’t pretty cool to look at too!
How about L’Oreal’s True Match Roller or L’Oreal One Sweep Eyeshadow?
Now True Match Roller I had some success with. Hey, don’t knock the world of rolling on your foundation like you would roll paint on a wall! It works, sorta, kinda….!
But L’Oreal One Sweep Eyeshadow? Not so much! If you don’t remember this palette, the One Sweep Eyeshadow was a trio of eyeshadows that came with an over large eyeshadow sponge applicator. You’d swipe the applicator over all three shades and proceed to sweep it across your eyes. It was supposed to highlight, add a lid color, and a contrasting crease shade in a single go. Most people thought it was a rather hysterical concept but I always felt like if it actually worked it would save a hell of a lot time applying eyeshadow.
As you may have guessed, it didn’t work.
But hey, thanks L’Oreal for trying!
What are some crazy makeup products you recall using and trying that seemed innovative at the time of their release?
Do share them!
