Avon Mega Effects Mascara Review

I received the new Avon Mega Effects mascara from Beauty Bulletin and was quite excited to be one of the first in the country into try it out. I admit it is quite gimmicky, but that was part of the fascination for me. You might have read in the past that I’ve been on a mascara quest so I’m always keen to try a new one. This is how innocent it looks before the wand is taken out.

I thought it might be easiest to summaries the pros and cons before adding my video review because I used the mascara for the first time on camera and you can get an idea of my first impressions.


The Pros
The wand is quite unique and is definitely designed to amp up the volume. If you are looking for volume and you like quite a ‘wet’ mascara then you will like this one. It also gave a fair bit of length to my lashes. I also liked that it didn’t flake or smudge during the day. It creates quite a false lash effect, and is perfect for doing your bottom lashes.

The Cons
It depends on how your lashes naturally lie, but for me I found the mascara clumped quite a bit because my lashes naturally grow in weird directions. Because the wand picks up a lot of product I found it quite messy to use and had to do quite a bit of cleaning up afterwards along my upper lash line and below my eyes. It does well with volume and with length, but doesn’t add any curl.

    I agree! This mascara is really messy. I think after a while then it will be easier to apply once you get the hang of it.

    I’m not really loving this mascara but it’s okay. The formula is amazing, though.

      It is actually much better after a few uses. I am actually really liking it now. I think the cleaning up afterwards is getting less, although it is a bit messy. But I don’t mind because I really like the effect. If nothing else I will use it as a bottom lash mascara. I wouldn’t call it sticky. It is even clumping less so I think it was just the initial few uses with excess product on the wand

    I love this honest review. I think I’m also liking it a bit more now. It does work much better when there isn’t so much product on the wand. I would love it if the formula was a bit ‘drier’. Loving all your vids x
