Marie Claire August 2012 ♥

I'm sure all of you are quite aware that the UK Marie Claire has a pretty amazing freebie this month- a choice of three, full size, Avon Mascaras. I was really impressed and obviously purchased the magazine asap! I chose Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara, and I'm quite impressed.
 All three of the mascara wands looked amazing, but I picked this one as the wand reminded me of Max Factor False Lash Effect, which I love. It has a pretty similar effect, although I think the Max Factor mascara makes your lashes look fuller. The Avon mascara makes my lashes look super long and separated, but unfortunately I found it was really hard to make them look curved.
 I thought my lashes looked really pretty and natural though, so perfect for the daytime. I also used the mascara in the evening, and found it was easy to apply extra coatings to get a much fuller look. The only downside I've found to the mascara is that after a few hours wear, it seems to leave black splodges under my eyes. This has nothing to do with my foundation or concealer as I never have the same effect with a different mascara. This is the only problem really, and I guess it's quite a biggy....

Full blog review of the mascara coming soon...

Sorry I haven't blogged in a week...I've been training for my new job! Very exciting!
Have you bought Marie Claire this month?
