Avon Mega Effects Mascara Review

If you believe the eyes are the windows to the soul, wouldn't you want to make those beauties as gorgeous as possible?

I have been on a bit of a mascara kick lately. I don't believe in spending a hefty amount of money on mascara; I find cheaper ones work just as well--if not better--than the department store brands.

What most mascaras have in common is the application: a wand comes in a tube filled with the product. The wand's brush can differ: some brushes are large and thick while some are rubbery and have thin bristles.

Avon has unleashed a brand new way to apply mascara with the Mega Effects Mascara, which recently became available.

For just $10, I had to order one for myself. My mom requested one as well after she had seen it featured on the Today Show. Ours are both in the black shade.

Here's what the product description is on the site:

"This breakthrough mascara provides 24-hour volume, leaving lashes darker, denser and more dramatic. Get ready for a corner to corner lash transformation with our first ever Wonderbrush.

The Wonderbrush bends and adjusts to multiple angles capturing every lash, top to bottom. The unique brush fits the natural shape of lashes, coating them evenly with formula from root to tip. The extra surface area of the Wonderbrush bristles are designed to deliver 40% more mascara to the lash.

Mega Effects Mascara provides a clump-proof, sweat-proof, non-flaking and non-smudging experience. Ophthalmologist-tested. .317 oz. net wt."

So, how does one release this unique wand from its prison? After popping off the cap, simply wiggle the wand around and gently pull it out.

Let's see how it looks!

I am quite impressed with how easy this mascara is to apply. Simply brush the product on your lashes as many times as you wish, and then go on about your day. I love the volume this mascara gives my lashes. I am a volume freak

There is no clumping or irritation whatsoever. Just be careful when applying the mascara to your bottom lashes; some may get on your skin. I recommend keeping a cotton swab handy to gently remove the excess.

Should You Try It: Without a doubt--yes! It's affordable, convenient, and effective. I really love this new method of mascara application.

What: Avon Mega Effects Mascara

Pros: Affordable, no clumping, great volume and length, revolutionary and effective application method

Have you tried this new toy out? What about similar revolutionary mascaras? Let me know!

Pretty Panda's Ponderings

  • I tried a blog sale for the first time ever from Cosmetically Challenged! I bought her Tarte Treat Yourself to Gorgeous  eye shadow palette, and everything came preciously wrapped and as described! I'll share that later. :)
  • Brownies are better with chocolate frosting, y'all.


  1. It's going to be available next September here in Malaysia!
    Can't wait to try it!

    1. Wow! I'm so glad it will be available to you all. It is a great mascara!
