Avon Daring Definition review


Sorry about my feeble attempt to take a pic of the mascara...i failed again... T_T

I was able to have my hands on this mascara just a few weeks ago. I wasn't able to try it out the time that i brought it since i still have a few mascaras with me. Since im about to dispose one of my mascaras i decided to use this now. The first time i used this was when i did the spring look.

First thing that i noticed when i opened it was the brush..im like..'ok, the brush wand is thin enough, looks like application is a breeze'...but i was wrong! Good thing that i applied it on my lower lashes first (i always do that when im trying out new mascaras...i dunno why though), because the wand got wide spaces in between that's why its doubly hard to coat the lashes without smearing your lash line....

Uh oh..so imagine how hard it was for me to apply it on my lashes...i was so extra careful when i did because the eye makeup that i did, i lined my upper lash line using white. It took me minutes in applying it...& with me being super extra careful, i still got some mascara on my upper lash line *sigh*..so i had to apply the white line again...

Im totally fine if it will take me a while to put it as long as i get good results...but NO! boy,was i wrong!

It just weighed my lashes down...At first i thought that its because i put too much makeup on...settled on my lashes..making it heavy..so i just ignored it & took the picture then post it... XD

But the next day when i was about to go out & used it, it was still the same. This time i did not put anything. I just used UDPP, then curled my lashes. That's my everyday thing...just mascara....as soon as i put it on, it looks as if i didn't even curl my lashes at all... =_="

Since i told myself that i wanted to do a review, i decided to just compare it with the mascara that is already on the way to the rubbish bin...the Maybelline Volum' Express... took pictures so that you would have ideas.

Of course i curled my lashes prior to taking pics, just curled it...no concealer or whatever...i used Volum' Express on my left eye & Daring Definition on my right eye. Yes, i have uneven eyes...XD...but just ignore it..lets just focus on the lashes... XP

Looking at the pic, the Volum' Express was able to hold my curl waaaaayyyyy better than the Daring Definition.One thing about the Daring Definition is that if you love to have spiky lashes, then you have to give this a try because it will make your lashes spiky...i guess its because of the wand..again..the wand got wide gaps in between so its possible to create spikes. & with that, if you are opting for a cat-eye effect then this might work. You just need to comb your lashes towards the outer eye area to elongate your eyes...

A closeup look so that you will see it clearly.

I used Volum Express here ----->

-lash is curled
-its been that way for like 5 minutes & curls are still intact...yay for that!
-will i recommend this? yes!
- ^_^




<----- I used Daring Definition here

-looks like i did not even curl it
-5 minutes has passed since i put it so its already a bit dry, even if i try to curl it..it will stay that way...
-will i recommend this? no!
- v_v




Ok, one thing about this is that it got a thick formula, which i guess why they call it as a mousse mascara. At first i don't have an idea why say 'mousse mascara' but after using it...i already have a fair idea why...

I don't like the wand...& the formula... It takes a long time to dry...for which this mascara wont suit people on the go... If it does dry..it doesn't budge or flake which is supposed to be good, but if you forgot to comb your lashes before it dries out you will be left with a clump of lashes...
I can say that when its dry, its good..but i hate the waiting part...a lot could happen while you're waiting for it to dry... it could smear & it could clump...

One more thing...the formula is so thick that you don't need to apply more than 2 coats...if you do..you'll end up looking ridiculous...You'll see it when you remove it, that its so black (i got mine in black..that's why)...feels like you packed your lashes with mascara...

It might not work for me, but i think this would work best for people who have lashes that are a bit hard to control...because this would definitely control & define those types of lashes...but for me who have short lashes...this won't do...

oh no on the "weighed" lashes, you're right, sometimes it works so well on others doesn't mean it'll work for you :) thanks for the review
