About a month ago I ran out of mascara, but at that time I was saving up for my trip to England so I didn't want to spend much on a new one. So, I decided to get the cheapest one I could find, the Avon Supershock mascara, which price varies from brochure to brochure, but I paid only €5.00 for it. 
The one I got is in a limited edition packaging which I find quite ugly, but I don't mind after all. It's got a big plastic wand with loads of tiny "spikes". After using it almost every day, I still haven't figured out if I like it or not. Sometimes it separates my lashes perfectly, sometimes it makes them look horrible. Sometimes it makes clumps, sometimes it doesn't. I think the worst problem I have with this mascara is that I can't apply it with my right hand to my left eye, or the application will be different from my right eye! I know it sounds strange, but it's the truth. It can be a problem when your're in a hurry and you don't have the time to apply mascara carefully. 
I don't look for much in a mascara, I'm not one of those people who put 10 coats on. My lashes are naturally quite long, so all I ask my mascara to do is separate them, give them a bit of volume and in general make me look more awake! I'm confused about this mascara and I probably wouldn't recommend it, unless you're broke and you can't afford a more expensive one. There are plenty of great mascaras out there, don't waste your time and money with the Avon Supershock.

  3. La confezione è molto carina, ma è pieno di problemi questo mascara.. Dell'Avon ho provato solo uno smalto (orribile) ed una matita per occhi, abbastanza carina, ma come marca non mi convince appieno soprattutto per i prezzi che hanno.. Grazie della recensione!
