Before I threw away my Avon Super FULL mascara, I wanted to show you a mini review to all the mascaras I have. :D
^^ This is my bare face and curled lashes.. I curled my lashes with Fanny Serrano curler, a product locally available here in the Philippines. If there is one thing I am not blessed with.. that is long and full lashes. :C Mine looked limp and inconspicuous. Thank God there are different mascaras out there that could help my lashes brighten up. I never considered eyelash extension although I tried eyelash perming which made it hard for me to line my upper lid. :S Each person has a unique set of lashes.. So, what works for me may not work well with other people. Various brands of mascara offer different formulas to accommodate the wants and needs of consumers. Some are:
- Lengthening: To achieve long and luxurious lashes. The mascara wand contains dense bristles, which distributes product along the entire length of the lash, especially the tips.
- Thickening: To help you create thick, full, and luscious lashes., this is the one to go with. If you have thin and sparse lashes, consider using this one.
- Waterproof: For those who loves long wearing and non smudging mascaras, this one is for you. These mascaras prevent the "raccoon eye" disasters. :D This is formulated to repel moisture which could be harsh to lashes . It can cause lashes breakage. (Which usually happens to me.. that is why i hate waterproof ones.)
- Non-clumping: These contain ingredients like silk extract & glycerin. The applicators also have longer wands which allow for a more even application.

I got this on sale for 199 pesos. My initial reaction with this mascara is that it was manufactured in CLUMP CITY!! Ahh.. I was supposed to give it away but gave it another try. This time trying a fast and wriggling motion in applying it.. and it works.. sometimes the real trick to a no clump mascara is the way you apply them.. I am in love with this mascara.. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes. As shown in the picture above,, I am pretty satisfued.It stays put for the whole day. I have the habit of rubbing my eyes and would always forget I am wearing mascara but true to what it claims,, this one is smudge proof. The mascara wand is thin and perfect for me. It reaches the lashes in the inner corner of my eyes and I apply mascara on my lower lashes with such a breeze. I am so inlove with it that it has been in my makeup kit longer than it should.. YAY..
Avon Supershock Mascara
What it claims: Unique microfibers instantly expand and plump lashes to larger-than-life proportions...for head-turning drama in a flash. Up to 12x more volume...in a single step. Maximum amount of mascara in just one dip. Molded teal plastic fine combs separate lashes for a precise, bolder-than-ever look. .35 oz. net wt.

Can anyone tell me what is so shocking about this mascara?? I honestly think there is nothing. I bought this mascara thinking it would be better than my superfull based on its name. The name, imho, is a mere exaggeration! Look at my lashes.. nothing shocking happened. The mascara tube is soo fat and the brush applicator is big too. I have a hard time using this one because of its big applicator. It can not reach the inner corner of my eyes and when I try applying some to my lower lashes it would really get messy. I, therefore conclude that this is a complete waste of money!
Milani Powder Lash Mascara
What it claims: A SUPER thickening & volumizing mascara with lasting curl effect. The “BIG?brush coats & separates each eyelash making them fuller with each application. This lightweight mascara will not smudge, clump or glob. Vitamin E, Panthenol and Bamboo Extract nourish & condition,preventing breakage and falling of lashes. Take POWER of your lashes, they too deserve to look amazing!

I gave my review about this mascara. Click here. I still love it. No matter how many coats I apply this never get clumpy at all. And for 88 pesos,, this one is a real steal at ebay.. This one is definitely my everyday mascara. :D The thickening is not very dramatic though.
What it claims: A natural, plant wax forms an even layer of coating over each lash, protecting the eyelashes from damage, while turning them into natural-looking, satisfactory curls. A protective layer is formed on each lash, making your eyelashes look full and voluminous
This mascara is the prize I got for Naomi's purple contest. This mascara is LOVE LOVE LOVE!!This is by far one of the best mascara I have tried aside from Maybelline's XXL. Look at my lashes.. the length is sky high.LOL When I first used this, I noticed that the product itself is thick and sticky. I thought uh oh.. another mascara born in CLUMP CITY. My inkling proved me wrong. The small applicator is perfect! It creates beautiful and luscious lashes without much clump (still, correct application is the key.. this tends to clump so be careful.) The curling effect is fabulous. I wore at around 4 pm and @ midnight my lashes are still a bit curled. It does not smudge and this is also waterproof. I am not in love with waterproof ones but this and superfull are exceptions. :D Although this is waterproof, I find it easy to wash off. I just use my regualr facial wash and water.
