Product Review: AVON superSHOCKMAX Mascara

Thursday, February 28, 2013

     I'm super excited to share this review! I got this product from my sister-in-law again out of curiosity. AVON is one of the local brand that I find cost effective because their products stays true to it's promise. I'm not expecting too much from AVON when it comes to makeup because most of the reviews that I read gave mix opinions. But whenever I see brochures and flyers in my sister-in-law's room, I get excited because they always offer new line of products not only for women but also for men and children. I can say that AVON has gone through a lot in discovering and bringing Filipina women modern innovations in skin care and cosmetics. So when I saw this product being endorsed by Angel Locsin, I got intrigued because this mascara can make the lashes 12x more of the volume. 

     I have a confession to make, I envy ze hubby and my son because they have luscious and thick lashes. I know that false lash effect can be achieved by using falsies and by trying high end brands but splurging on mascara is a no-no for me. Most mascaras have only 3 months shelf life and I usually stay at home so if I buy one it will just expire or dry up. I super love Maybelline Full N' Soft Mascara but it's not available here and it's pricier than this so now I have a new love! Thank goodness there's AVON, my dream of having vavavoom lashes just came true :)

three coats, see the shadow of this falsies effect mascara on my under eye? It only shows that the mascara not only gave volumizing effect but lengthens my lashes too.

and tadah~three coats!!!
What I like:
  • The wand- it's longer and thicker than the usual and the bristles is different that I guess the reason it can reach those teeny weeny lashes from the outer and some from the inner corner of my eye. 
  • The texture is like a smooth paste, not runny nor too thick.
  • Affordable, less than 500 php and it has 10g of product compared to most mascaras in the market.
  • Looks like I'm wearing falsies.
  • Adds thickness, fullness and length to my lashes.
  • My lashes feels soft and not brittle.
  • Minor clumping for 4 coats or more.
  • No stinging or irritation of my eye.
  • Waterproof.
  • Very easy to remove using an ordinary eye makeup remover. 
  • No panda eyes and no shedding of lashes when removing the mascara.
What I don't like:
  • Can weigh down the curls after three coats.
Will I repurchase? Yes!

Recommendation:
     I give this a 5/5 rating. My sister in law gave me this product for review and she said the sale price of this mascara is less than 300 pesos! Whoaa! I can't believe Avon offers great discounts and look at the performance. I'm super satisfied with the product and I highly recommend this mascara specially if you're on a budget.

Good Times!~

  5. @Gelliw Abogado- Hello gel :) Ang galing nga e. Gusto ko din yung lash king kaya lang hindi ko naabutan yung sale so yung price balik sa dati medyo mabigat sa bulsa yung 700+ hehe
