This was my very first mascara ever...I believe I used it freshman year of high school and it was very average..didn't do anything really but coat my lashes in a thin layer of black..EXTREMELY mediocre and nowadays I have such standards for mascara so I don't even give this one a second a look....still lookin for my hg mascara...

I began using the waterproof version of Almay One Coat Mascara after an optometrist told me that there was some irritation at the base of the eyelashes, which I wasn't aware I had. Prior to that I had been using Maybelline Great Lash exclusively, but found that toward the end of the day it flaked into my eyes, which must have caused a sensitivity because my eyes began itching toward the end of the day. Almay's mascara does not irritate my eyes and I like the brush better because it is fuller and doesn't produce the dreaded spider effect. It is also easier to wash out with ordinary soap and water compared to Maybelline Great Lash. Because this formula is gentler, I feel that my eyelashes have grown in slightly thicker and healthier over the past year as a result. I do note, like others, that a single coat is not enough, however. I probably apply three or four! After a few hours the freshly applied look does seem to fade. This formula is probably best for someone who wants a natural look and feel in a mascara. Partly this is because this formula does not hold the lashes stiffly in place so it is easy to forget that the mascara is there at all. Almay One Coat Mascara waterproof formula is just as good as Maybelline's Great Lash waterproof formula in the sense that it doesn't run. It is far less likely to flake but it tends to smear a bit. Just the same, I only notice a slight problem with color transfer when I visit the chiropractor and lay face down on the table (a tough test for any mascara :). My last observation is that the contents of the tube do not seem to last as long as the brand I formally preferred. It seems to have less liquid in it but at the same time it isn't very thick or sticky in texture, either. The fact that I find myself replacing it more often is probably for the best though because mascara isn't something you want sitting around month after month. In closing, I will continue to use Almay Once Coat Mascara until I find something that is equally gentle yet holds the lashes a bit more firmly in a fanned out position.

It's a good everyday mascara, and it does what it promises - it lengthens your lashes. You won't get that false lashes look here, but you'll get beautifully defined, natural looking lashes. Despite its claims to not smudge, of course it'll smudge some by the end of the day, especially if you have oily skin. A waterproof formula will help with the smudging, but you're really not supposed to wear waterproof mascara everyday.
What else can I say? I really like that it's infused with aloe and vitamin B5 since we hardly ever condition our lashes and just beat them to death with waxy products so that they're curl and make our eyes look more defined. I really like this mascara, so I'm glad that I got this on a limb.
Having good technique will help you avoid clumping while putting the product on.
The price is good too - a good quality mascara, and you're going to get more for your dollar in my opinion.

All I can say is WOW!!!!!!! What a wonderful mascara. My lashes have never looked longer or more defined. I used to use cover girl exact lash, but recently my eyes began to sting like crazy and I figured out that it was the mascara that I was using. Must have developed an allergy to it or something. I switched to Almay because they are hypoallergenic and my eyes have not stung since!!! No clumps, no flaking, no smearing, and it comes instantly off with a light face wash - I don't care for waterproof brands... I wasn't looking for volume as much as I was length and this mascara does the job beautifully, although it does give some volume as well. Absolutely beautiful results. My HG mascara. Will never switch to anything else. Give it a try, you will not regret it!!!

This mascara does clump, but if you apply it on with a little more expertise, it's one of the best drugstore mascaras you can buy. I have really sensitive eyes and it didn't make them water or sting. This mascara isn't for extreme length for a dramatic look, but more of a im-going-to-braid-my-hair-and-put-on-loadsofblush kind of natural lash look. It makes lashes look really pretty and fresh. Also, if you want it to last longer, you're going to need primer on there first because Almay's mascara can't stand long alone.

An average mascara with a standard brush. Looking for a mascara that offers more. It applies smooth no clumps. Lengthens but won't last more than 2 hours.

This mascara is ok. I find the brush to be a little too big and fluffy, not the type of brush that works when you are trying to define every lash. The mascara lenghens your lashes, until it dries. Then it disappears. I use this mascara as a base for my L'Oreal waterproof mascara. I need to use less of the waterproof mascara plus having the Almay underneath it makes it easier to remove. It is definitely less irritating than some mascaras but if you are looking for mascara that use can actually see, buy something else. I would buy it again just to use under my waterproof mascara.

i love the brush for this mascara! it separates my eye-lashes very well. i am very surprised this mascara doesn't clump or smudge unlike the other DS brands that claim they do but don't. it also doesn't take too long for it to dry like the maybelline mascaras. it does slightly lengthen my eyelashes and makes it natural as well. not too expensive too and it's usually on sale somewhere.

This is one of the best mascaras I've ever used. I got it free on a mail-in rebate for Walgreens (reguarly 7.99.. yikes). I really like my makeup to look natural, and this mascara does a bang-up job of just that. My lashes barely flake, and the lengthening is noticable but not dramatic. I also like how this product doesnt clump and defines & separates my lashes. It looks even better when I curl them first. I definitely recommend.

I bought this product because I had so much luck with the Almay eye liner. The mascara is great. It is definitely good for contact lense users and does not smudge at all.
