Product Trial - Avon's Sonic Boost Vibrating Mascara

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

I had forgotten that I'd ordered Sonic Boost Vibrating Mascara from Glynis, my lovely Avon Lady. I was reluctant to try it though as I'd recently found a friend in the form of Rimmel's Lash Accelerator Mascara, I was concerned that it's powers would wear off if I strayed...

My lashes are long but fine and straight and were, until recently, VERY badly behaved. Prior to trying Lash Accelerator Mascara my search for a mascara that whipped my lashes into shape spanned almost two decades.

Never-the-less, in the pursuit of fabulous lashes, I did try Avon's Sonic Boost Vibrating Mascara. Avon claim that '8000 vibrations a minute re-creates the make-up artist’s zig-zag hand motion, for spectacular separation, ultimate coverage and up to 6x volume'.

Did this vibrating mascara work? Yes, I was very pleased with the results and it didn't tickle a bit. So now, after many years, I have two mascaras that give me the results I desire. Not that I am complaining - two are certainly are better then one. That said, I think this mascara is better suited to daytime use - for me anyway - as too many coats left me with spikey, clumpy lashes.

I am reminded of this;

Bloody Men

Bloody men are like bloody buses -
You wait for about a year
And as soon as one approaches your stop
Two or three others appear.

You look at them flashing their indicators
Offering you a ride.
You're trying to read the destinations,
You haven't much time to decide.

If you make a mistake, there is no turning back.
Jump off, and you'll stand there and gaze
While the cars, the taxis and the lorries go by
And the minutes, the hours, the days.

Avon calling...

Avon have been around for as long as I can remember. My Grandma was an Avon Lady and when I was at nursery school I remember playing with a Skin So Soft bottle filled with coloured pieces of foam (I assume they also had real toys for us to play with) and my very first, treasured lipstick came from Avon, the shade? Iced Champink which they are still selling today.

I'm a daily user of Glimmerstick Eye Liner, Invisible Light Concealer and Ideal Shade Smooth Mineral Foundation and would highly recommend them all.

Recently I have ordered a Luxe Lace SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil that A Model Recommends recently gave a rave review (they're currently half price at £3.00 so get one while you can)

Are you an Avon enthusiast? Do you tend to stick to the same brand for your make up or buy a mixture?
