Beauty most… torturous?

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 9 - 2013

God, I love a beauty gimmick. In reality, I generally hate them… but it’s the promise of pure innovation that I just can’t resist!

It looks a bit like a handbag-sized torture device doesn’t it?

Have you already spotted it online?  Can you guess what it is?

    Ha, it’s Avon’s new mascara. I think it looks fab but I also have a soft spot for gimmicks!

    It recieved some love from those who have tried it but honestly, I’ll stick to my Benefit. Avon just loves gimmicky presentation. :)

  4. I believe this is Avon’s new twist on a mascara! I’d heard this was coming out on the grapevine, I wonder what makes this different to all the other mascaras out there! No doubt I will be giving it a go :)

    Would love it if you could check out our blog!

    Ahhh the Avon mascara. I can’t apply this darn thing without it getting all over my eyelid because of the extremely short “wand” and wonkey shape. The formula is decent and the brush, minus the odd shape, is excellent, but it just feels so wrong to apply and I get it everywhere. If it was a traditional wand with the same bristles and formula, I’d be all over it. It’s supposedly meant to bend to help coat lashes better, but I’ve had no luck with it :(

  6. Emily just said it all! I totally agree with her!

    I still want to try it though. Does that make me sad?
