I tested out Almay One Coat mascara in Blackest Black. I received this free with a coupon I cut in the Sunday paper. It is about $6 at Walmart. I like the Almay liquid eyeliner and I’ve been using it since I was 19 so I was hoping this masacara would come through for me.
The wand has a super thick brush. I will say that I like that it picks up the smaller lashes and doesn’t clump at all. The formula is a bid dry so I found myself having to dip repeatedly. That is ok for me because with a wetter formula, my lashes won’t stay curled, they droop, and I hate that.
I used 3 coats even though the package says one Coat but I wanted to test it out. One Coat wasn’t too bad. 2-3 coats pretty much look the same.
The wear throughout the day was good. I didn’t have any flaking and smudging. I even wore it to the gym which is the same picture from my last makeup post. I didn’t have any issues wearing it there either. Again, I don’t typically wear makeup to the gym but this was for testing purposes.
I like that it is hypoallergenic because I have super sensitive eyes and after a while some mascaras make my eyes gross. This one didn’t have that problem at all. When I took it off, I did have to use extra effort. It didn’t just wash off with my face wash in the shower. Instead, I had to use the Garnier Micelar water and it came right off with that.
I would give this mascara a solid 8 out of 10. For the price, you really can’t go wrong. 😎
