The Wonderbrush: Mega Effects Mascara replaces the standard wand with an innovative new multi-dimensional brush that lifts top and bottom lashes from root to tip in a whole new way. The first-ever brush of its kind, the Wonderbrush fits the curve of your eyes and can be used at 12 different angles for a corner to corner lash transformation. The bigger bristle area combs through lashes easily for phenomenal clump-free volume, putting 40 percent more mascara to lash*.

Get The Look: To use, grip at the sides and remove the mascara cap. Rock the brush from side to side to pull out. Bend the brush to your desired angle and apply from root to tip. To close, insert the applicator until it locks in place.

The Results: Bold lashes with panoramic volume. Eyes look bigger and lashes look darker, denser and more dramatic. Clump-proof, sweat-proof, non-flaking and non-smudging. Ophthalmologist tested.

The Experts:
"I love Mega Effects Mascara; the bendable wand allows you to get in close from many different angles, making it super easy to use. I always keep at least one in my makeup kit!"
-Lauren Andersen, Avon Global Celebrity Makeup Artist

"There hasn't been true innovation in mascara since the 1950s. We realized there was a need for an improved application process and Avon is changing history by introducing a breakthrough with ergonomics in mind that will change the mascara application experience."
-Lisa Lamberty, Avon Executive Director of Color Research & Development
