Review: AVON Big & Daring Volume Mascara


ag-186098The first thing I notice about Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara ($7 at is its chubby fluffy brush.  The bristles are soft and dense and brush has a subtle curve.  The brush holds onto a ton of product so the first coat is basically like two coats.  There’s a ton of volume and density at the roots (just watch the tips for clumps.)  My lashes are super black and are coaxed out into a cat-like shape.  The formula dries quickly, so I recommend applying the second coat before moving onto your other eye. 

The second coat takes your lashes to fake-lash territory, which I love but it might be too much for the casual mascara user. At my midday touch-up my lashes were super brittle so I didn’t even think about a touch-up coat.  I definitely needed eye makeup removed at the end of the day, but I did love the rich and lush formula.  I would recommend this mazzie for the mascara junkie who plays with different lash looks.
