Review: Avon SuperEnchant Mascara

I'm still on the hunt for the perfect mascara. The last 2 years of blogging have flown past and so has my well documented search for a mascara that does everything you would want from it. From the super expensive, to the super cheap, I've tried more mascaras than I would like to admit but still have not found the one that has kept me going back for more. Benefit and Paula's Choice have been my strongest contenders for all around amazingness in a tube but I still feel like there might be better ones out there so when I received the new Avon A/W collection, which also includes a new mascara, I couldn't wait to try it out.

The new Avon SuperEnchant mascara claims to be a "Lightweight mascara for full looking lashes that feel soft-to-the-touch" but as a big mascara fusspot, I was interested to see if it matched up to the claim.

The first thing different about the product is the brush. Now, I've been through loads of mascaras but this is the first time I've used a brush like this. I'm sure there are other brands out there that offer something similar but this was a first for me so I couldn't wait to use it and see how it performed.

My first impression was definitely not the best and you can probably see why from the photo above. Although the mascara lifted my lashes, it made them clumpy and crusty which is not what I was hoping for or expected with this mascara. In the past, I have heard people rate the Spectralash mascara and Supershock liners so when I received the SuperEnchant, I did have high hopes but those were quickly panned as soon as I saw my lashes. Another problem that I had was the fact that the mascara flaked throughout the day and left me with odd bits of product down my face or ending up under my bottom lashes. I suffer from dark circles under my eyes and although that is probably due to the lack of sleep that I put myself through, have dark mascara marks really doesn't help either so I can assure you that this product will not be seeing my lashes again.

Have any of you tried this product? I'm not going to be entirely put off the Avon mascara range and I do plan on trying the Spectralash one out some day but the SuperEnchantt was a super mistake.

You can buy this mascara from the Avon website where it is priced at £8.50.

Until next time...

  1. Mascara is a tricky product to get right... but if you want to try another AVON mascara, I recommend the super magnify mascara!! (in my opinion)
