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."

    It didn't make my sensitive eyes itch as much as other mascaras, but it flaked pretty badly.

      Have used it for years. It applies quickly and it's easy to remove with Baby Oil and a couple of Kleenex. You can extend the life of the tube life by adding a few drops of tap water when it seems to be going dry.

        I've been using this product EVERYDAY for yrs. I get a lot of complements on my eyelashes it gives more length and thickens them I LOVE this mascara . Another reason I dont have to rub my eye's much when I was it off. I dont buy waterproof for that reason.

          This mascara does not cause any allergic reaction. It never disappoints and I have tried many very expensive products that do not work nearly as well!

            I have tried all kinds of expensive and department store mascaras and I always come back to Almay One Coat. While it does lengthen, my lashes are short and blond, so I start with Almay to get that "one coat" coverage and layer it with a Borghesi from [...]for lengthening. The One Coat base keeps me from having to layer 3 or more times to cover and lengthen my short blond lashes. It has a nice brush for both upper and lower lashes.

              I almost never wear any type of make up but I needed a mascara for those occasions or days where I want to look a little more special. After reading other people's reviews I decided to try out this mascara. Normally, if I do wear mascara I wear Neutrogena but I wanted to try something new. This was a great mascara. A bit intense for me (but I usually go all natural so this is just from my perspective) This definitely added volume and length and was pretty high impact. It made my eyes look big and bright which is always a plus. Not clumpy either. I would give it 5 stars but it is almost too high impact for me.

                This was recommended on a tv show by a makeup expert as a wonderful product. I now have used this mascara exclusively for at least four years. It meets all my expectations and needs and I highly recommend it.
