My new HG mascara. Doesn't flake, or clump, or leave my lashes feeling crunchy. Love this product!

This mascara is just fine. I'm using it for now until I save up enough for a high-end vegan one like Gabrielle or ecco Bella.

I'm pretty sure this is my HG. Either this or the Almay Triple Effect, which I'm using now. I have super, super sensitive eyes (I get styes so often I was told by an eye doctor to wash the insides of my eyes daily with baby shampoo) and this is the only mascara I've tried (other than the Triple Effect) that doesn't bother me. I also have pretty long, full lashes so I don't want something that's going to give a dramatic effect otherwise I'd look like a freak.


I have used this in black/brown which on my almost black lashes shows up as more a black. And I've used black. I will probably go back to black/brown during the spring/summer months when I switch back to brown liner.

First mascara I used. Really like it!! I forgot to buy waterproof but it didn't matter.flakes easily though. Not too much strength on the lengthnig part but after 3 or 4 coats it helps. Definetly try this mascara :).

It does what it says: lengthens your lashes. It is very soft and gentle and my lashes still look and feel quite natural. Also, I don't know if it is because of this "nourishing" mascara, but I've noticed my lashes are longer and thicker (withouth make up on) after using this. Could be my imagination or some other cause, but it was worth mentioning.

Many years ago I used the traditional Almay One Coat mascara and never had a problem with it. I've been using Maybelline brand mascaras for a while but for whatever reason I decided to switch back to Almay. I'm so glad I did! I bought two different ones, the One Coat Lengthening and the One Coat Thickening and these two really complete the look I've been trying to get. Many mascaras promise to give you both length and volume but never do. These two mascaras really do the trick... I fell in love with my lashes the first time I applied these mascaras. These formulas are smooth and go on easily without clumping. They last all day without flaking. And best of all, my lashes feel so soft and natural, not gritty or stiff like many mascaras make them feel. I'm really happy I decided to switch back to Almay.

i'm surprised i like this so much. for a drug store brand, it's one of the BEST i've tried (cover girl, L'oreal, maybelline, etc--all stink for me) It does what it says--lengthens and is waterproof. it goes on easily and stays on until you take it off. for $5.99--can't beat it. That said, i am looking for my HG mascara and this is not 100% what i want--i want thick lashes AND volume. sooo, while i recommended and bought this for my daughter, i am going to try Dior and others for me (fyi, i don't like Neutrogena or any MAC mascaras either....)

update 9/2012. haven't bought Almay for myself again, but still buy it for my daughter. tried Dior...loved it but it dried out insanely fast [around 2 mo max] making it a horrible buy. tried a new-out mary kay mascara that was horrible...as w/many of their products. i keep trying them b/c someone close to me sells them. Also tried fiber lash by? and million lash by ? -drug store buys- and they were only fair. ugh]

I love this mascara. I haven't used it in about two years and I honestly don't know why I stopped using it, I guess because I love range and I love changing up my make up to see what works best for me and in the back of my head I always knew this mascara was my favorite but I didn't go back to it until today and I am sure glad I did. It makes my lashes really long and beautiful, something that I could never achieve with any other mascara that I bought. I definetely recommend this mascara. <3

I think this mascara is okay, but it doesn't DO anything for you. The brush is nice, but the formula is a little too runny and it takes a lot of coats to build up. It makes my lashes look very thin and not really that much longer. Good for beginners.

I love this stuff! Usually I have 3 tubes of mascara, one almost empty, one medium full and one full. This stuff does it all. I start out with a one, then move to the 2 and 3 as my lashes get thicker and thicker! Recently I've been pretty ill and my lashes really thinned out. This makes them full again!
