Last year Avon introduced a breakthrough mascara, the Mega Effects Mascara. I was skeptical about trying this out so I waited quite some time and got it while it was on sale.
You may have seen this mascara around, it's the one that looks like a paint brush. Avon calls it the Wonderbrush, it bends and adjusts to multiple angles so it catches all your lashes. Avon claims it fits natural shape of lashes allowing it to coat them all evenly from root to tip. They designed the brush this way so it would deliver 40% more mascara to the lashes.
Avon claims that the mascara provides 24 hour volume, leaves lashes darker, denser and more dramatic. Formula is supposed to be clump-proof, sweat-proof, non-flaking and non-smudging.
For me, I found this mascara to be quite awkward to work with. I could not really find a way to bend the wand that felt somewhat natural for me. It does not hold curl, which is no big surprise to me because I have have a hard time finding a mascara that will hold curl. I did not see any added volume, I don't think my lashes looked denser or dramatic. I will say it did leave my lashes looking darker, but ummm, isn't that what mascara is supposed to do?

I honestly do not see what all the hype was about this mascara. I don't feel that it done anything for my lashes that a regular mascara couldn't have done. The only claims the Mega Effects met for me, is that it did leave my lashes darker, it's non-clumping and that it is non-flaking. I will not be repurchasing this and I will be sticking to my Maybelline One by One Volume Express.
Avon Mega Effects retails for $10
