      The Almay Get up & Grow Mascara is another Almay brand mascara that I have tried recently. I am a mascara addict so I am constantly trying out every single one I can find in the drugstore. The appeal to this one is that it is supposed to help make your lashes grow. Isn’t that a claim that so many brands have made recently? It is also supposed to strengthen them. It was only seven dollars so I decided to give it a shot. I wanted to see whether this product would live up to its cute and clever name. I purchased the “blackest black” shade

      but it also comes in “black” and “black brown.”

      This mascara does make my lashes look good, but I am not so certain whether it lives up to the claims of making them longer and stronger. After two coats of this mascara, my lash line looks more volumized and defined. It definitely adds a bit of length. It does not clump my lashes together. There is no flaking and no lash fallout. It applies very evenly so I don’t get those places in my lash line where three or four lashes are bundled together. I like the brush. Its shaped so that getting product onto all

      of my lashes is easy, whether it’s the lashes at the center of my eye or the tiny ones in the corners. It is even good for coating the bottom lash line.

      There are some things that I do not like about this mascara, like how hard it is to remove from my lashes and how it has a tendency to smudge. I can’t use this on my lower lash line anymore because it literally just melts off onto the skin beneath my eyes. The first day I had it on, I was shocked when I looked in the mirror and saw a bunch of black ...

      smudges beneath my lower lash line. As I mentioned before, it is also hard to remove. I had to go back three times with makeup remover before I got all of the product off of my lashes.

      This mascara is supposed to have an anti-breakage formula. I haven’t noticed brittle or breaking lashes so I guess that is probably the case but I have a hard time judging whether this mascara is necessarily making my lashes stronger. I know for certain that it isn’t damaging them but I am not going to go so far as to say that this is making them healthier just because Almay

      claims that the formulation has vitamins in it.

      Overall, I have to give the Almay Get Up & Grow Mascara a rating of a 6 out of 10. I was not overly impressed with how it smudged and that is kind of a deal breaker for me when it comes to mascara. Plus, I have no way to know whether it is strengthening my lashes so I am just going to assume that my lashes are healthy enough as is and that other mascaras will do the job just fine. I will probably not repurchase this mascara even though it is pretty good at adding length and volume.

After one tube of usage I felt my natural lashes did look a little healthier, more shine and possibly a bit thicker. I did not notice any extra length or increase in volume to my lashes. The shine and thickness of individual lashes could possibly be from product coating and not necessarily from helping my lashes.
