How in the world that such less expensive brands work for me? Well, that's the wonder of makeup.. you're just surprised everday.
My collection of Avon Mascaras
Jillian Dempsey For AVON Professional Mascara
Big Brush for upper lashes -volumizing formula gives you the va-va-voom volume you've been looking for, .14 oz. net wt.
Baby brush for lower lashes - Waterproof formula won't smear. .12 oz. net wt.
I got the Jillian Dempsey Professional Mascara mainly for the baby brush. I've been searching high and low for a small baby brush to use for my lower lashe. So just imagine how I felt when I saw this on the AVON March Catalog. Yey!
But the highlight of this is that it granted my wishes to be able to coat my lower lashes without smearing my skin around it.
If I were to rate this...
3 out of 5 for the formulation
3 out of 5 for the big brush
5 out of 5 for the baby brush
effect on the lower lashes: 4 out of 5
effect on the upper lashes: 3 out of 5
AVON Longest Lashes Even Fiber base + Fiber
Step 1: PRIME Start with micro-fiber base coat to take your lashes to outstanding lengths.
Step 2: FINISH Sweep on fiber-infused mascara to extend lashes...up to 85% longer.
Now that's far out. Double-ended wand. Fiber base .14 oz. net wt. Fiber-infused mascara .14 oz. net wt.
But the more important questions is does it look naturally longer? NO. I had trouble with it clumping and that spidey-effect (that all of us don't want).
The Base coast has a chemical-scent to it that not all of us may stand but I find that it doesn't bother me at all. For those who wants to shorten their makeup routine everyday may find that adding one more step of applying the base coat tedious. For those who really have short lashes, I don't think you would mind adding this step for it does provide longer lashes effect. Don't worry too much, the base dries quickly.
The Fiber-infused Mascara must be infused thoroughly because I don't see any evidence of it on the brush (small hairs sticking out - check out the pic). But yes, upon sweeping the mascara, you'll notice instantly how thick and long your lashes turned out. I just really don't like the brush all the much. Or maybe I just need to get use to it.
Overall: 3 out 5 for me
AVON Uplifting Mascara
The formula also looks different compared to the rest, It's creamier but has that shiny effect that I was looking for. :)
I give AVON Uplifting Mascara 5 out of 5 points.
AVON Astonishing lengths Waterproof Mascara
ASTONISHING LENGTHS Mascara lengthens lashes up to 65% for an incredible look of long, sweeping lashes. Resists clumping and leaves lashes separated and defined.
You'll experience a little clumping but nothing a lash comb won't fix in a flash. I just need a coat of two of this product and I'm good to go.
Score: 4 out of 5 for me.

P.S. Has anyone tried thier ANEW Skincare line? I'm curious with it and wants to try it but I need to know first if its works for any of you. Thanks!
