The Lash Diaries: Almay One Coat Triple Effect mascara

title mascara

Like just nail polish, I consider myself a mascara snob.  I don’t typically use drugstore mascaras because I used to have eyelash extensions so once I gave that up I didn’t mind spending a lot of money on a good mascara.

I received the Almay mascara last week and to be honest, didn’t have high expectations for it.  I was sure it performed well, but I haven’t ever tried anything from Almay, plus I haven’t really seen or read any blog posts about it.

From Almay:

Get fuller, longer, curvier lashes in one coat for 100% pure impact. The patented triple-action gel formula instantly builds, extends and sculpts your lashes. Triple impact brush wraps mascara evenly around every lash in one smooth application. Gently formulated with aloe and vitamin b5 to help keep lashes conditioned. Extra-gentle, non-irritating formula.


Going in with no expectations for this, I can say that I was pleasantly surprised by the results I got with this product.  The brush is spiral so it can get in there and coat every lash and leave behind a sufficient amount of product.

This mascara left my lashes looking long, full and dark. Now, with that being said, there were some pitfalls with it.  I found my lashes to be quite stiff, and I found that product kept getting onto my eyelids which was super annoying. That happens to me often with mascara, however, it happened a lot with this product, so that was quite irritating to clean up.

Overall I am satisfied with this mascara and it’s quite affordable at only C$6.68 at Wal-Mart.  If you are curious about this one already, give it a try, it may surprise you!

Have you tried Almay’s One Coat Triple Effect mascara?  What were your thoughts?

Please note, I was sent this mascara by PR.  All opinions are my honest own.
