Avon Supershock Mascara Review

I ordered some things from Avon because they were having a really good sale. I got a bunch of lip balms (reviewed here), some lotions, a face cream, and two tubes of their Supershock mascara.

Pros:
The mascara looks decent enough on, and it's only a three coat mascara for me, which is a big deal. (Usually to get the length and volume I want I have to do four or five coats.)

Cons:
It's a short term mascara. Meaning, it only holds up for a couple hours and then something really weird starts to happen.... My eyelashes start sticking together. I don't mean lashes next to each other get smooshed together, because that happens with most mascaras if worn heavy for long amounts of time. I mean my top lashes start sticking to my bottom lashes, especially at the outer corners. This is without having cried or anything throughout the day. It just does it. And it's gross feeling.

Overall:
1/5 stars.  Don't waste your money.  Much better mascaras can be purchased at the drugstore for a similar price.
