Avon Super Drama Mascara

Hi dolls,

So I've been on the hunt for the perfect day mascara as I don't always want to wear some of my higher end ones for everyday purpose. So I was really happy to get my hands on Avon's latest mascara release to try out as I am already a fan of their mascaras - yes I'm looking at you Super Shock mascara.

So according to Avon their latest mascara claims to 'lift, lengthen and volumise lashes in an instant, with a fan brush and formula it makes every lash fuller, longer and more dramatic without clumping'.

Packaging wise it is very Avon - simple yet chic and I do love anything purple so we were onto a winner straight away, and I'm a sucker for the cute girly font. 

Now I was instantly drawn into the mascara because of the wand, it's like no other that I have come across before and the plastic wand reminds me of like a fan shape so I thought it would be really interesting to apply. I do find that with the staggered plastic bristles it helps to apply product on my lashes especially on the lower lashes - something that I do struggle with and it then becomes messy.

Application wise this is a lovely foundation, after one coat it applies very natural yet gives visible length. However for me I do like a bit more volume so popped a few coats and you can see what that looks like in the photo (although for some reason it won't come out as well as I got my moms opinion on this), and have found that it does lift my lashes quite well which is something I really like. 

Length and volume wise it does give great results, although for some reason I can never really capture these on camera. I think probably after a lot of coats (if you like the thicker look) you may experience some clumping or spider lashes as I thought I was getting on the verge of it. But I really like the volume that this mascara gives and helps to open my eyes, and this might sound a bit random but I find after quite a few layers my lashes still feel quite light (if you get what I mean) as I've experienced a few mascaras that feel heavy on my lashes. 

I was surprised at how well the Super Drama mascara helps to separate lashes, I thought the more layers I would apply the more they would cling together but I find the staggered bristles really help to separate the lashes which is a big bonus for me!

When it comes to lasting power I find this great for the price, I applied it at around 2 yesterday and it stayed on all through work last night which was til 9 and even then it had no signs of moving. 

The only one thing I'm not sure about is whether this is waterproof or not as it does have a tendency to smudge a little - nothing too major though.

Currently this mascara is on an introductory offer of £7 instead of £10 so I think it's a great buy and worth the price. 

Have you tried this mascara yet? Are you a fan of Avon mascaras?
