Review: Avon Infinitize mascara

Recently I've been absolutely loving Avon! I went through a phase of ordering everything imaginable but then I kind of forgot about it and I hadn't ordered anything in quite a while. In the past couple of months I've completely fallen in love with some of their products and I keep discovering new favourites, one of which being this new infinitize mascara


 Aside from the obvious bright orange packaging (which I personally love) the thing I immediately noticed was the size and shape of the brush. On first glance, it can look rather scary considering it will be close to your eyes but the design of the brush is rather clever! It is a plastic wand (I normally prefer bristle brushes) and it is curved in order to lift your lashes and it has smaller bristles at the end which allow you to get right into the corners to really emphasise the corner lashes. 



 I've been using this for a couple of weeks now and I'm really impressed with it. As a general rule, I look for mascaras that are very black, give length and a little volume and don't flake. This seems to tick all those boxes for me. It's very black in just one coat, it adds a good deal of length to my lashes and I feel like the brush really gets to the root of the lashes and grips well but still gives an easy application. What stands out for me, are the smaller bristles at the end of the brush which really bring out your outer lashes and give a lovely cat eye effect. It could do with adding a little more volume, but I tend to go for certain mascaras for their length and then use others for the volume so it's not a big problem. The mascara has claims of up to 24hrs wear, of course I didn't leave it on for 24hrs but this stays put all day (about 8-10hrs) and doesn't flake at all! I also like that it doesn't leave your lashes feeling crusty or clumpy at all.

Is it just me or is there quite a big difference in the picture above? I really notice my outer lashes looking far better with this mascara than my regular day mascara! It retails for £10 which is a pretty standard price for a mascara (drugstore/highstreet) but it's currently on sale for £5 so even better! 

Have you tried this? If not, what's your favourite mascara?

  2. The right lashes definitely look more defined and a lot blacker too! Would suit me really well as I always want to go blacker when it comes to lashes and liner ;) x

  3. Ooooh this looks amazing I always hesitate ordering from Avon as the price is almost the same as something from revlon or maybelline! I really do need to take the plunge and order something this looks amazing :)
