AVON MEGA EFFECTS MASCARA REVIEW

Tashika Bailey | Mega Effects Mascara
You may remember this unique looking mascara from my most recent Mini Avon Beauty Haul which I posted a couple months ago. I briefly mentioned that I might post a review on this product... Well here it is.
This unique looking mascara is the world's first wonder-brush waterproof mascara brought to you by Avon Cosmetics

As I've never used this sort of mascara before I decided to give it a try, I recently wore this mascara for the first time and took photographs before and after applying it to compare the difference.
I also went out for a couple hours to conduct a photo-shoot of my outfit while wearing this mascara; just to see how good it really is. Continue reading below to find out my thoughts and the pros and cons of this unique mascara.

My 100% real lashes. No added lash extensions or false lashes worn.
To create my winged eyeliner, I used Avon Mega Effects Liquid Eyeliner Pen; which was features in my Mini Avon Beauty Haul.

Product Description:
Get panoramic volume and corner-to-corner coverage for waterproof dramatic definition. Black.

Thoughts
From the moment this mascara catch my eye in the Avon brochure, I knew I had to try it. I'm all about trying new products and let me tell you, the decision I made to try this one has left me with no regrets. Just look at the before and after photographs above and you be the judge.
I love the way this mascara adds so much volume to my lashes with just a couple coats. The brush is designed uniquely to really lift and curl each lash from corner-to-corner. I wore this mascara on a particular hot day, where I conducted a photo-shoot of my outfit. I was busy travelling to different locations and posing for pictures, so busy, that I ended up sweating so much; most of my make-up ran and smudged, but I was surprised to see that my mascara didn't run nor smudge. These photographs were actually taken after the photo-shoot, just to show you how good and stay put this mascara is. I am extremely happy with this product, it is absolutely waterproof, stays in place and doesn't wear out or fade.

Pros
  • Waterproof - 100% waterproof, it doesn't smudge nor run, even if you were crying your eyes out or you were out in the rain. 
  • Long-lasting - Very durable, last all day and doesn't wear thin or needs to be topped up. 
  • Usability - Easy to apply and give the lashes a darker, denser and more dramatic look. 
  • Brush - The unique and curved design of the brush picks up, lifts, add volume to and curls the tiniest lashes from corner-to-corner. It's great for short lashes. 
  • Angle - The brush can move from a 180 degree angle to a 90 degree angle. The more angle added to the brush, the more effective the results are.
  • Non-Flaking formula - Last all day without flakes or clumps.
  • Affordable - At only £10 (£7 on sale), this mascara is very affordable especially for 10ML and without a doubt it's worth every penny.
  • Easy to remove - Removes easily with any make-up remover wipes or eye make-up remover. (To remove, I used "Garnier Skin Naturals" make-up wipes for sensitive skin. These wipes removes all make-up without rubbing, including waterproof make-up from the face and eyes.)
Cons
  • Re-apply - If you let the mascara dry between coats it'll result in clumps. (For the best results apply a number of coats until the desired volume. DO NOT let it dry between coats.)
  • Shades - It's not available it other shades apart from black. Although the non-waterproof version is available in three different shades: navy, blackest black and black/brown.
  • Accessibility - At first the brush was a little fiddly, stiff and hard to get out of the bottle. I had to pull really hard to get it out.

Would I buy it again?
Yes, I would definitely but this mascara again, I love the design of the brush and how easy it is to apply. I actually want to buy the other similar Mega Effects Mascara as well even though it is not waterproof.
