  • The mascara is not the best I have tried, but it is a passable tube of mascara and I am fine using it when I have nothing else available or just for everyday
  • I think Avon just took their regular mascara formula and repackaged it into a larger, rounder tube with a thicker wand because it really does not feel any different than the older formulas I have tried in the past
  • I found that this was better when I applied an eyelash conditioner prior to covering my eyelashes in the mascara that the flaking and rubbing off went away
  • I don't always have eyelash conditioner though because I am not used to using it, so this was an issue
  • For eight dollars on sale I could get a better tube of mascara at the drugstore that might do an equal job or put that money towards a more expensive tube that will give me amazing eyes

      I have tried several Avon beauty products and the majority of them are either a very big hit or a very big miss, and the Avon SuperShock Mascara was actually one of the very few products from Avon that has fallen somewhere in the middle. The mascara is not the best I have tried, but it is a passable tube of mascara and I am fine using it when I have nothing else available or just for everyday. I was actually hoping for more from this tube of mascara since Avon had some pretty convincing ads running when the mascara first came out.

      I think Avon just took their regular mascara formula and repackaged it into a larger, rounder tube with a thicker wand because it really does not feel any different than the older formulas I have tried in the past. The


      tube is the perfect fit for your hand so the new size in that respect is a plus, but I think the new super size is only meant to go along with the name. Applying the mascara though is made easier by the larger wand handle and the larger brush size. I never feel like my hand is going to become cramped, or have a hard time holding the wand in between my fingers.

      The mascara itself goes on easy enough and I do feel like it covered my eyes well. The mascara did not last as long as I am used to, after about eight hours out the mascara did always rub off some or flaked off depending on the situation, which is something that I do not tolerate in the mascara I use at all. I found that this was better ...


      • when I applied an eyelash conditioner prior to covering my eyelashes in the mascara that the flaking and rubbing off went away. I don’t always have eyelash conditioner though because I am not used to using it, so this was an issue.

        I don’t feel that the mascara did anything other than add the extra color to my eyelashes, they definitely did not look longer or fuller or curve more than they did without the mascara on. The color coverage was good though and the mascara was not too heavy so I was ok wearing the formula during the day without feeling like that was an issue. My eyelashes are black so usually I like to go with the darkest shade of black I can find or a deep blue because I feel that those two shades make the whites of my

        eyes pop the most. In this case the darkest shade of black was Black Noir, so I went with that but felt it didn’t really get as dark as I would have liked. I could definitely see the difference when I applied it, but I would have liked more.

        In the end, I don’t really feel that there was anything special about the Supershock Mascara from Avon. It was an acceptable tube of mascara and I can use it, but it didn’t offer me any of those things I look for in a mascara to give me the eyes that just pop and really look great. For eight dollars on sale I could get a better tube of mascara at the drugstore that might do an equal job or put that money towards a more expensive tube that will give me amazing eyes.
