I love this mascara. I already have naturally long lashes. I don't wear mascara to make my lashes look longer. I primarily wear mascara to darken and thicken my lashes. This Almay mascara helps me achieve the look I love. I want thick lashes without them looking too long or fake.

My only regret is that this mascara does not come in a Waterproof formula (or at least I haven't found it) so that I can wear it to those occassions where I know I'm gonna cry... like a wedding.

This had been my favorite mascara since the early '90s, and then suddenly about two years ago I became allergic--itchy, swollen, watery eyes, and after extended use (I hadn't yet realized the mascara was causing the problem), my lash line started flaking and peeling. I thought maybe I'd just gotten a bad batch, so I bought another tube, and I had the same problems. I even tried it again a year later, because I really didn't want to give up my favorite mascara, but no luck. I figured maybe my body had just changed, but now I'm wondering if it's the "nourishing" formulation. I hate it when companies change a perfectly good thing--like New Coke in the '80s. What ever happened to "if it's not broken, don't fix it"? So much for "hypoallergenic."

    Comments about Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara, Blackest Black 401, .4 fl oz:

    It's about 3.5 stars. The pros are a great smaller brush which allow you to get all of your lashes, even the inner corner. Also, it coats well, but the volume is fine, nothing great. It rarely clumps. The cons are that I find black under my eyes a bit after a few hours as if the heat of my face causes it to come off, and it is hard to get off. Overall, a good product, but I think I like L'Oreal Voluminous better (a bit clumpier, but easier to get off, runs less, and more volume).

    I have used this mascara for years and have never found one better. I can count on it not to run or smudge even during outdoor sports in the hot and humid South. My only complaint is that it tends to dry out before I can use all of it.

    Comments about Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara, Blackest Black 401, .4 fl oz:

    I used the product daily for about two weeks and it would always flake off or smudge before it could flake off. At the end of the day I wouldn't have any mascara on. It doesn't apply well and since it's hard to get it to stay on it naturally doesn't clump. 0/10-would not recommend.

                I never even try another new mascara!I have used it forever and it is the best. It is great on lower lashes as well and you can make a line under the lashes too! All the runway models in Europe use it and that's how I found it.

                Comments about Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara, Blackest Black 401, .4 fl oz:

                I have tried many many mascaras from Lancome, Dior, shiseido, Benefit, to drugstore brands, CoverGirl, maybelline, loreal, etc. I like my lashes as long, thick, and impact-fully black as possible. I've been using this mascara from Almay and loving it but my friend gave me the new dollhouse by Lancome so I used that when this tube was done. This [$] Almay Nourishing Thickening Mascara beats the $21 Lancome any day in length, in visibility, in thickness. I'm sold on Almay. The only thing to note to use this mascara successfully is that when it starts to dry out it can get a little tuff to work with but you should change mascara for health reasons every 30 days so I just add a few drops of water stir with the wand shake and let it sit over night around day 15 and I have a good consistency all the way to day 30. Also, if you aren't use to working with a thickening mascara you need to start at the root and zig zag the wand gently back and forth up the length of your lashes section by section from the outside working in and repeat until you reach the thickness and volume you desire. This is how you keep it from clumping or sticking together but get that wonderful full look. This is a great workable, buildable mascara for that va va voom lash. If I am doing a look without liner but don't want my eyes to dissapear than this is the only mascara I will use. Another bonus is it seems to be really easy on the lashes where brands like cover girl seem to break my lashes over time. Trying the Almay lengthening next just to see if it is better.

                I've used lots of different mascaras, but this is the only one where I've seen a noticible change in my eyelashes. They are longer and healthier than they've ever been. The mascara is a little clumpy, but I still love it!
