The Good :-
- its not too wet,(I have done the sneeze test, and the "OW, $*£&£$!!!! I just poked myself in the eye!" test)
-it gives good definition
-the tube doesn't dry out too quickly,
-it holds a curl well,
-it makes my lashes look a bit longer but still natural,
-it doesn't flake,
-it has great staying power for something that isn't waterproof,
-it makes for a great easy quick day look
-one coat looks great, 2 coats looks Fab
-the tube twists closed with a lovely soft click so you know its closed properly
-it can clump
er... that is all I can think of actually.
Avon's SuperCurlacious Mascara comes in two colours, Black or Black/Brown and RRP is €11. But I wait for it to go on special and then pick up 2 or three tubes and just leave them in the drawer until I need them. Brochure 2 of 2012 has them on special for €6.50. Bargain.
The brush is a slightly curved, slighty flexible rubber 'hedge-hog" brush which I like. The tube opening is also great as it allows just enough of the product to leave the tube on the brush to make application easy.
So this is what my lashes look like bare. Excuse the tiredness, please. I have used a bit of concealer under my eyes (I haven't blended it properly :( ) and Essence I Heart Backstage eyeshadow primer on my lids. That is it, no liner, no shadow (eek).
This is one coat:
One coat on the left eye, nothing on the right eye:
Two coats on the left one coat on the right:
Two coats on each eye:
I prefer to use this for day looks as two coats can look a bit clumpy, especially if you don't take the time to comb through the lashes properly. Its great for the school run or a coffee morning. Its not too expensive so if it goes missing its not a big deal.
My Luxe mascara purchase though with be Diorshow New Look Mascara. You can see it over on Ree's blog, http://www.reallyree.com. I will own this, somehow, some way, I will have it!
