      I am not one to splurge on mascara. I want to find a mascara that does the job, but doesn’t cost too much. I had the opportunity to try Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara– Thickening Waterproof. I was thrilled to be able to try this mascara, especially since it is waterproof! The less expensive mascaras are usually not the waterproof ones, and sometimes I can’t justify spending so much money on waterproof mascara.

      The first thing I noticed about the mascara brush is that it is thick. I think the brush is too thick. It makes it more


      difficult to get the mascara where I want it to go. The brush is thick toward the middle and narrows down toward the end. I often find myself tilting the brush to use the tip where it is narrower. I wasn’t very pleased with the thick brush because it is more difficult to use than the thinner brushes I am used to.

      Another thing I was less than pleased with was the fact that the bottle never feels full. When I dip the brush into the bottle, I like to know there is plenty of mascara inside. But this ...


      • bottle feels empty to me, which is not very reassuring, especially since I can’t actually see what is inside! Also, when I dip the brush into the mascara, it doesn’t seem that much comes out onto the brush. Maybe that is because the mascara is thicker, but I still don’t like it very much.

        The bottle specifically says “one coat” but I often find myself applying more than one coat because it isn’t dark enough. One of the most disappointing aspects of this mascara is that although it says “waterproof”, I haven’t seen any evidence that it is waterproof. It

        still smears like the non-waterproof mascara I use. I was not at all convinced that this is actually a waterproof mascara, and I would not buy it if I wanted waterproof mascara as it doesn’t seem to do the job at all.

        I think the bottle the mascara comes in is pretty. With a shiny blue handle and a simple white bottle with black letters, I like the look of the tube. But I wouldn’t buy this mascara if I wanted something extraordinary. It does the job of mascara, but it doesn’t do anything else special as it claims on the package.
