This is a nice, standard mascara. Comfortable to wear all day at a stressful job without worrying about smudges or flaking. It's natural looking enough to be very appropriate for a daytime look but it's not something I would use for a dramatic eye. I will repurchase again because I wear it to work, but I will give the thickening version of this a try as well since it has gotten slightly better reviews.

Very much a natural look mascara, but it's extremely gentle on my sensative, contact wearing eyes. I've used mascaras that give a more dramatic(preferable) look but Almay mascara's are the only ones that don't irritate my eyes. I like the brush on this, fat and lots of bristles so no clumps and defined individual lashes!

this mascara goes on kind of dry. it gives more of a natural look rather than a dramatic one. i didn't notice a whole lot of help in the lengthening department. it does give some volume, but also flakes. i tried it in black/brown, but might have liked it better if i had tried it in black. overall this mascara is just ok. if you're looking for something quick to apply before work or school for a daily volumizing look i guess this would be ok. i much prefer a more dramatic lengthening look though so i won't be repurchasing.

Found HG mascara. Doesn't smudge, is clump free and makes my eyes pop. It makes a mess-free thick falsie look when I choose to build it up with multiple coats. The brush isn't fancy but does the job well.
But baby, it's all the formula. It's not gloppy and gross like some I tried.

Edit: Bourjois Maxi Frange Waterproof is now HG for me because of the waterproof factor. Because of my oily skin condition, this isn't working for me anymore.

This is a mascara that stays in rotation in my rather limited makeup routine. I like a fairly natural, me-at-my-best look and this product gives my eyes that appearance time after time. It darkens and lengthens my lashes subtly, never leaving the dreaded spidery look. Not once have I ever had to comb out a clump after application. It's easy to apply and easy to remove. I wear contacts and have never experienced irritation related to flaking or allergic reactions. I gladly repurchase this product again and again.

I am not a big fan of mascara, but this is the one I wear because it goes on light and not stiff or sticky. There's no strange smell and it doesn't clump when I put it on. I have sensitive eyes and this mascara has never caused a reaction. I also like that it doesn't get everywhere when you take it off (like Maybelline Great Lash mascara). I think this is an excellent product and I will repurchase.

This is a great mascara for the natural look. It never clumps and rarely smudges. It doesn't hold a curl though, which is why I took off one lippie. I'm looking for a dramatic mascara, so I probably won't purchase this again. If you already have perfectly curled lashes, I REALLY recommend you give this a try.

It's awesome. I love the way it lengthens and thickens. Almay makes great mascaras.

Not a big fan of this one, mainly due to the major racoon eyes I get. Whether i am washing it off or just through daily wear and tear.

At first, I liked this mascara, but it dried up very quickly, after about 1 month, and became clumpy and started giving me raccoon eyes by the end of the day.
