Finally Found HG Mascara!
I've always used waterproof mascara because it's the only one that will hold a curl on my straight lashes. What's been lacking from the many mascaras I've tried over the years is volume. This Almay mascara gives me the volume I've been looking for and I didn't need to apply multiple coats. I have to add that I always start by curling my lashes and then I use NYX Proof It waterproof top coat as a base which I've been doing with all my mascaras. I was using BareMinerals waterproof top coat and I liked it but it was discontinued. I didn't like the way the brush flared out at the top of this mascara because it made it harder for me to apply it to the inner lashes without getting mascara on my face so I took a pair of fine tip scissors & trimmed it down a bit and now it works fine. Lashes are black, bold, voluminous & stay up all day. I only use it on my upper lashes & haven't had any issues with smearing or flaking. I highly recommend using a metal lash comb for separation before the mascara has had time to dry completely. As with all waterproof mascaras, it requires a good waterproof makeup remover. I use Clinique's Take The Day Off For Lids, Lashes and Lips. It's non irritating and easily removes waterproof mascara without a lot of rubbing. Coconut oil will also remove waterproof makeup. Once the eye makeup is removed, I wash my face. I don't go swimming so I can't say if it holds up under water but that's not as important to me as how it looks. I hope they keep this mascara around for a long time because it's taken many years of searching for a replacement for the long ago discontinued CoverGirl Marathon mascara. I haven't found anything that compares to it and I wish they would bring it back.

I don't like waterproof mascara
from San Diego, California
I love this mascara! It only takes a couple of brushes to get fuller lashes and it withstands a day at the beach. It takes minimal effort to apply and I do not have to worry about what my makeup looks like throughout the day. Highly recommend!
Exactly what i was looking for!
