I think it's like anything, what works for one person isn't necessarily going to work for someone else, and what doesn't work for someone may end up working well for another. Perfect example, you said Fiberwig XL didn't do a thing for you, but for me it's my HG of mascara. On the other hand, I personally consider liquid foundations a waste of breath, I've yet to come across one that lasts more than a few hours before either melting, fading, or oxidizing a horrible shade of oompa loompa.
I havn't tried any Avon products in forever. However, I know that one of the draws to Avon here in NZ was that it was cheaper than everything else. Most cosmetics in NZ sell for two or three times what they do in America, a $5us Maybelline mascara sells for $25nz here. And before anyone says anything about exchange rates, that's $20us. Revlon ColorStay and PhotoReady are $45nz, that's $35us. Insane, I know, it's why I don't buy cosmetics locally. But before the advent of the internet shopping experience Avon was the affordable option for many here. I imagine that for those who aren't comfortable shopping online it still is. Don't get me wrong, I don't think there's anything that special about Avon, but then again I think that about a lot of brands. But I'm just trying to provide a little reasoning.
