My First Time using Almay One Coat Mega Volume mascara

There are some days I love a super simple makeup routine, and by super simple I mean eyebrows, mascara, and lipgloss. I was lucky enough to get a new Almay One Coat Mega Volume mascara from the lovely Influenster team and I was excited to see what the megaphone brush was all about. I liked the sleek design and it felt very comfortable in my hand. 

At first "sniff", I liked that this mascara did not smell like rubber and was easy to use. I can't tell you enough how many products I've tried that stink like chemicals and rubber. Gross right?? 

This was my first time trying Almay and even though the formula was ok, there's still room for improvement with this particular mascara. Don't fall for the gimmick megaphone plug. I really wanted to like this mascara but my lashes were not as volumizing as it claims to do. The shape of the brush works well in theory, but it's actually quite awkward to use and didn't get all the lashes in one shot. On the contrary, I wasn't impressed that my lashes looked wet and clumped together. One coat did absolutely nothing and I needed to use two coats to see any difference. The colour was fantastic but the brush could benefit from a redesign. 

I wore this mascara all day and I didn't see any fallout. This mascara would be good if you're looking for a quick fix and possibly even for an easy every day look, but I do not recommend this mascara for full glam. I'm happy that I got the chance to try this for myself and I'm sorry to say...I'll pass on Almay mascaras for now. 

Have you tried the Almay One Coat Mega Volume mascara? What did you think of it?
