"There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty."

Hello my loves!
I've been testing out Avon's new Mega Effects mascara for a little over a month now and wanted to share a pretty in-depth review with you!
This mascara costs $10 and is the most unique looking applicator I've ever seen... The second I saw the commercial for this I knew I had to get it! Here is the boxing and packaging first:
It's pulled through this, sort of filtered type space... And unfortunately, it just doesn't stop enough product from coming through, so you get a bit too much on the brush. Here is what it looks like right when you pull it out of the container:
... Now for the brush:
The formula is more on the wet side, which isn't exactly my favorite.. I definitely prefer dryer formulas and I'm not quite sure how much this will dry out since it is in a jar-ish type thing rather than a tube.
This is after one coat, without curling my lashes.
This mascara gives great length, but not much in the volume department. I already have fairly long lashes so mine literally touch my brow-bone when I really layer this a few times.. But I do wish it gave more volume.
Again, I didn't curl my lashes at all..... Do you see that curl?! Very impressive!
So, here is after three coats.. Still not much volume but I think this is great for every day wear. And I am so pleased to say that I have not had a problem with this smudging for flaking!
Overall, I give this a thumbs up! I absolutely love the brush, you can get every single lash and it's also perfect for the bottom lash-line as well! I love to layer this with other mascaras so I get the volume from one and the length from this one!
I think this is great for anyone who wants length to their lashes, and I'm curious to see if it helps add curl to anyone with lashes that are more on the straight side! This brush can be a bit intimidating to some so if you aren't adventurous with your mascara, I'd say you can pass this up without losing out on too much.. But I think this is great, a super innovative design and I'm excited to see if Avon comes out with more versions, and also if any other companies give this a try!
I hope you are having a great day!
