Avon supershock max mascara

A new addition to the Avon mascara collection, Supershock max has a chunky brush with short spikey bristles and claims to give up to 15x more volume:

Despite the length of the bristles, it gripes the lashes well and after 2 coats my lashes are visibly more volumised and defined. The short bristles also makes it ideal for coating the bottom lashes and I've yet to have any problems with clumping.

There is a downside though- like a lot of mascaras, it smudges a little by mid afternoon. However I really like the lengthening and volumising effects and because of this I tend to wear it a lot on night's out and weekends when I don't need my mascara to be as long lasting.

Have you tried any of the Avon mascaras? What's your favourite long lasting mascara?

  1. I've tried the original Supershock mascara and also found that it smudged. It's a shame as the mascara and brush are great. x

  2. I picked this up recently as it was on offer, and at first I wasn't sure about it, but I've reached for it pretty much every day and I really like the effect it gives my lashes xx

  3. LilyLipstick - That's a shame, especially as it gives such nice results. I thought it was just me but I guess the formula isn't the most long lasting x

    ♥ Sadie ♥ - Glad you like it x

    Kim - Glad you like it too, it's great for volumising x

  7. cushy - I have the world's straightest lashes, so not the best person to comment, but once curled they doo last reasonably well throughout the day x
