The massive wand that gives massive lashes

On the left is my Avon Super Shock wand and on the right is my Max Factor Lash Extension Effect wand

When I first opened this mascara I couldn't believe how big the brush was… it's absolutely huge and I'm a bit clumsy at the best of times so wasn't expecting particularly neat results with this! The wand has rubber bristles and is like the body-building-steriod-taking-protein-shake-guzzling big brother of the Max Factor Lash Extension Effect mascara wand, which is one of my all time favourites

I've included a couple of pics of False Lash Extension so you can see what I'm on about... but back to the Super Shock mascara!...
The formula really impressed me because it's not too wet (One of my pet peeves!) and it works as well on the first day it's opened as it does two months later. I find it unbelievably annoying when I apply a coat of mascara and then try combing through my lashes with the mascara wand for a nice second coat only to find that the wet formula just makes my lashes clump together, giving that not-so-pretty spider-leg look. In this case the bristles are fantastic for coating and separating all the lashes giving a really nice dark natural finish that can easily be built up with another coat or two for a more dramatic look

Of course none of that really matters if it can't last the day without smudging (Yeah, I mean you Falsies!) but I've worn this for 12 hours with no smudging or flaking even when my eyes have been watering cos of the bitingly cold wind. Le sigh, good old summer weather in Belfast - 60mph winds and lots of light showers. Grrr!
The only complaint I have about this is that the brush isn't really practical for use on my bottom lashes cos it's so huge. I'm too lazy to go to the effort of opening a different mascara just for my teensy bottom lashes so I make this work but just have to be extremely careful ♥

I'm gonna order a few of these cos I've noticed in the past that when I start to really love an AVON product they discontinue it! Grrr!
