The brush was fine/serviceable, if a little small. It’s a bristle brush (which I prefer over the plastic/ rubber ones) which is tapered at the end and it coats lashes well. The mascara formula left...

Doesn't go on very smoothly, and smudged within a few hours of application. I didn't have any emollient creams below my eye to cause this, so I blame the product. It also doesn't thicken...

I liked this mascara, but it seemed to leave a shadow under my lower lashes and it is difficult to remove. Otherwise, it did not irritate my eyes. I will not re-purchase this.

I found this mascara to be clumpy and difficult to work with. The combination of the formulation and the brush gave me such poor results and no matter how much I tried to fix the look of my lashes...

This is an outstanding mascara and costs only $4.99 in Target. I happen to think it's a hidden gem at the drugstore, I never even hear it talked about on YouTube but I don't know why. It gives...

This mascara causes build-up on my contacts. At first, I thought it was "user error" meaning I wasn't applying it correctly. Now, I know that isn't the case. I switch to one of your other brands,...

Wow! I was not expecting to have such luck with this brand. I am a contact wearer with sensitive eyes. All of the other drug store brand mascaras I've tried have ended up flaking and irritating...

Never have I raved about a mascara that isn't waterproof, but I'm raving right now. As long as I curl my lashes properly, this stuff gives me nice, dense, pretty lashes and I love that it comes in...

Wow, I was not prepared for a mascara home run from Almay! Not that I wasn't expecting much, I just prefer very dramatic lashes and I didn't foresee this making the grade. Maybe it was the kind of...

Provided good volume, but after four hours I had raccoon eyes, and it wasn't even hot outside. Actually, I was only outside for a few minutes & spent the rest of the time in an air-conditioned...
