    Comments about Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara:

    i was really excited to finally have a blue mascara but this one is really more of a dark grey than blue. and most importantly it smells horrible. At first i though ok maybe it'll fade as i wear it but no the smell stayed on as long as the mascara did.

    Comments about Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara:

    As far as "clean and green" this mascara is not too bad (rated 2 by EWG Skin Deep). It doesn't claim to be waterproof and I assure you it is NOT waterproof by any means and does smudge easily.

    That being said, my major complaint about this product is the brush. The volumizing bristles are very large and soft and it was difficult for me to apply to lashes without getting the product on my eyelids. Definitely tricky for lower lash application especially. Could just be me though since I'm used to using brushes with much smaller bristles (i.e. Cover Girl Lash Blast Volumizing mascara).

      Comments about Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara:

      First I'd like to add, I DO NOT RECCOMEND FOR ANYBODY WHO WEARS CONTACT LENSES.

      I have no problem applying this mascara. I absolutely love the brush and I personally have no problem applying it evenly without clumping or lashing sticking together UNLESS I over apply, in which I can easily correct and seperate with a eyebrow/lash brush.

      The reason I don't like this is because of the glitter in it. This is the only mascara I've EVER had a problem with and I've never considered myself sensitive to eye makeups.

      Because it's so easy to remove, after a while it begins to flakes off.. right into my eyes causing my eyes to hurt and be pretty irritated. I had to flush my eyes for a good 10 minutes to completely get it out of my eyes and out from under my eyelids. 24 hours later and I still feel like I've had sand kicked into my eyes. Just my experience with this mascara..

            Comments about Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara:

            I was afraid at first because I didnt want something too purple... I didnt want the plum to stand out too much. I was pleased that it was not too purple and it was a darker tone.. which I had hoped for! I hear Almay is also hypoalergenic so I hope this is better than other brands. I am excited to wear it everyday. I do hope they keep using hypoalergenic ingredients, and make more volume mascara!
            Something I really like about this mascara is the brush.

            A Gloppy Mess

                  Comments about Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara:

                  Purchased in shade 034, Mocha. The brush comes out of the tube with way too much product on it, and trying to remove it from tube again doesn't help. Haven't seen clumps like that on my lashes since the '70s. Don't have time to clear the clumps from the applicator or my lashes on the way to work!

                  Comments about Almay Intense I-Color Volume Mascara:

                  I have sensitive skin as well as eyes, and usually trust Almay since their products are hypoallergetic and gentle. All the more reason I was not impressed by this mascara. I picked up the Mocha(medium brown) shade and was discouraged before I applied any. The brush looked like a clumpy mess. My eyes burned almost immediately after putting it on. If that wasn't reason enough to return it, this mascara looked dreadful! They add some type of sparkles which did nothing but clump up my eyelashes. I tried to salvage by using a lash comb, but this only made it flake off! I'll stick to my Lancome mascara.
