Avon SuperShock Max mascara: size matters

With the launch this month of their new maximising mascara, Avon prove that sometimes, bigger really does mean better. SuperShock Max has to be the Daddy of all mascara, with its chunky turquoise tube and giant wand (now, now), and it makes a lot of big, bold claims: 15 x more volume, thanks to Avon’s first Helix brush, designed to deliver maximum fullness and a layered, dramatic look that’s clump free.  Want to see how it measures up?

So, big tube, big wand, big head, big promises: but how does it perform? Let’s take a look:

 Here's me looking a little startled, totally makeup free. 

Looking a little more awake, with one coat of mascara on one eye...

Aaaand....BAM! Two coats on both eyes, and looking mighty pleased about it.

So the verdict’s in: size matters. This stuff rocks. I’m loving my bigger, bolder lashes with no clumps or flakes. I had a little bit of smudginess to start with – my fault, not the product’s, because I’m just not used to working with such a giant brush. But after a couple of uses I’m a dab hand and a big fan of the full-on, volumised lash look this delivers. At €15 for 10ml, I think it’s well priced, too - I was sent mine to try out, but I'd happily buy this again.

This was the first piece of Avon makeup that I’ve tried, but it won’t be the last. I’ve heard rave reviews of their Supershock gel liners and Colordisiac lipsticks, so these items are next on my hit list! Avon don’t sell through shops but exclusively through independent sales representatives – find yours here.

And if you’re feeling lucky, make sure you check out Rosemary MacCabe’s giveaway over on Fash Mob – she has FIVE tubes of SuperShock Max up for grabs.
