Today I'm reviewing 2 of my all-time favorite mascaras; Avon SuperExtend Mascara and Avon SuperExtend Extreme Mascara, both in "Black". As always, I've included photos of the results so you can see it for yourself, and I've added a photo of the 2 brushes so you can see the difference between the original product and the jazzed-up "Extreme" version (click photos to enlarge).
Image - right: Avon SuperExtend Mascara and Avon SuperExtend Extreme Mascara are 2 of my favorite lash-lengthening products.

First of all, let me tell you why I opt for mascaras with a lash-lengthening formula. I'm pleased with my lashes - they're thick, healthy and dense - but their short/medium length lets them down a little. I love the way that long, lifted lashes make the eyes appear more open. So, I always curl my lashes with eyelash curlers for lift, and I add a lengthening mascara for length. Sometimes I apply a volumising mascara as a "base coat" for extra drama, but I haven't done that in the photos for this review, as I just want to show the results of the Avon SuperExtend mascaras. I used to wear false lashes pretty much all the time, but I got fed up of the nightmare of removing the eyelash glue every night! 

When Avon sent me these mascaras I couldn't wait to try them out. They're now among my "everyday mascaras" - I'm actually almost out of SuperExtend Extreme, you might be able to see it's looking a little dry from the mascara wand photos (see end of blog)!

So, without further ado, let's move on to the results. :)

Avon SuperExtend Mascara - Black: This is the original SuperExtend Mascara. It's only available in "Black" - if you want more shades, opt for SuperExtend Extreme Mascara (below), which comes in "Brown/Black" and "Navy", too. As you can see from the photos, one coat adds some length, but for top results it's best to apply two coats (see photos - below). The formula is packed with lash-lengthening fibers that interlock with every sweep, making lashes appear up to 55%* longer. The slim wand has is made up of plastic bristles that taper to a point - this allows helps to coat the lashes with the right amount of product, and makes it easier to apply to the corner and bottom lashes (see "mascara wand" photo - below). It makes the lashes appear longer, gives a touch more volume, and has a clump-free result.

Avon SuperExtend Extreme Mascara - Black: This is a newer, updated version of the original SuperExtend Mascara. It's available in three shades ("Black", "Brown/Black", and "Navy"), and, as usual, I have it in "Black"! I'm very impressed with the result that just one coat gives, but I like to wear two coats for even more length and volume. It's long-wearing and flake-proof, so there's no need to worry about topping it up over the day. The thick "lash-lifting brush" is made up of dense plastic bristles that coat each lash with the perfect amount of product, and gives a separated and clump-free finish (see "mascara wand" photo - below). It makes lashes appear lengthened and voluminous, so it's a great all-rounder!

So, if you're looking for a product to add dramatic length to your lashes, these mascaras are definitely worth a try! They're both Avon products that I could not live without. I'm one of the huge number of people who have given these mascaras great ratings, and I'm sure you will be, too!
