Mascaras have definitely been a theme on my blog as of late. I’ve tried everything from high end innovations to affordable dupes. But I didn’t expect to find mascara love in a hypoallergenic pink tube from the drug store.
I recently received the Almay Mega Volume Mascara from Influenster for reviewing purposes. I’m honestly ashamed to say that I’ve actually never tried any products from Almay, despite only ever hearing good things about the brand.
For those unfamiliar, Almay is a beauty line notorious for their hypoallergenic, fragrance free products which are suitable for all kinds of sensitive skin. In fact, it was the first cosmetic line for consumers who wear contact lenses. And maybe that’s why I love this mascara so much. it’s super gentle on my eyes without compromising on volume.
By nature, I have super dry eyes, so I always try to avoid mascaras that might further irritate them. The formula of this mascara is fantastic. It doesn’t flake or smudge, but it’s a breeze to remove at the end of the day.
The brush is a little bit unusual, with an almost bulbous end. But it actually helps in creating a voluminous coat on the outer lashes. You can definitely build this mascara, but honestly, one coat works for me, and that’s exactly what I’m looking for in an everyday mascara. Bonus, this product also comes in a waterproof formula for those who are looking for even more longevity.
Overall I think this is a really great product. And while I love testing out new mascaras, this is definitely something I would consider purchasing in the future. That’s and A for Almay.
