Review: Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara

Sunday, March 09, 2014



Back to back reviews of Avon products? Why not! Actually, expect more on the next few days and weeks for I have a lot (I mean, a loooooot!) of Avon products in my stash to try and use. Oh how much I love to be one of the Avon Makeup Council members! 

A long time ago, I gave an Avon mascara a try though I am already bias with a certain brand when it comes to mascaras. To cut things short, it wasn't a pleasant experience so I went back to my trusty mascara brand and never again planned on getting the ones from Avon. Past is past and I know Avon has undergone a lot of improvements when it comes to their makeup formulas and packaging so the beauty and makeup enthusiast in me gave the Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara a chance to change my heart when it comes to Avon mascaras.


Take even the shortest lashes to new heights! Lengthening mascara with lash-lifting brush visibly lengthens top lashes by up to 87%. Doesn't flake, clump or smudge.


I must admit, it wasn't love at first use. It was too wet for my liking and it takes a long time to dry. So yeah, I kept it away for some days. But one day, my everyday mascara went somewhere and I had no choice but to again take this mascara in a bright yellow packaging another spin.



So did I have a change of heart? 


I LIKE that ...
  • it really does lengthen my lashes. Well, I am not sure if gives my lashes a near to 87% boost in length but the fact that it lengthens my super short lashes is an achievement!
  • it stays on for the whole day.
  • doesn't smudge.
  • doesn't flake.
  • gives a wee bit of volume.
  • gives my barely there lashes the definition it needs. I think the shiny black color of it has something to do with it.
  • the brush has tiny bristles that catch even my tiniest lash.
  • it washes off easily.
  • it is very affordable or rather, inexpensive.
  • I am a member of the Avon Makeup Council. Oh yeah, the privilege of having, trying and using Avon products is the bomb!

I DON'T LIKE that it...
  • takes forever to dry. Most of than not, I end up with black dots on my upper lids and lower lids after application of this mascara.
  • clumps a bit.
  • is too wet.
  • smells too plastic, if that makes sense.
  • is not waterproof.
  • weighs down my lashes.

Will I repurchase?
No.


Without mascara, my lashes are few, thin, short and stick straight.


With coats of Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara, my lashes improve a bit in length and volume. It weighs down my lashes, probably because of its wet consistency but it doesn't make it go back to being straight and down.



It is not too much, I know, but it does make a difference on my lashes. I like the definition it gives my lashes but I am not sure if the Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara lives up to its claims.


I like it but I don't see myself repurchasing. It is not the worst but definitely, it is not also the best. It is just on the okay part for me. So did my experience on Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara change my views on Avon mascaras? Yes! Avon has improved the formulation from blah to okay and that is already a positive point for me. But still, I am yet to be convinced that Avon mascaras are worth repurchasing.
