If you are like me at this time of year, you have red, itchy eyes and everything you put on them disappears or irritates them.
I’ve been trying out some mascaras over the past six or so weeks. I wear contacts and I have very sensitive eyes.
I have found that Almay mascara is the one that doesn’t irritate my eyes and doesn’t run when I cry. I cried a lot over the past weekend, in church, for Easter services. I was so surprised that I didn’t have “raccoon” eyes!
Here’s what I have tried:
One Coat Get up and Grow
This mascara is really great at coating your lashes! I curled my lashes, then put on one coat. I only wear mascara, not really any other makeup, but, this actually made me try the eyeshadow that Almay makes as well! It lasted all day. It wasn’t super clumpy and I combed it out after I put it on, for no clumps at all. I didn’t have any flaking with it, which is really important when you have contacts! It didn’t make my eyes itchy, like other mascara’s have in the past. This is a great mascara for going out to dinner, a date, with other makeup as well. I put on two coats, and my lashes are really long! I’m going to keep wearing this one for a while!
One Coat Nourishing Mascara
This is the mascara I’ve used for a while, on and off for two years. I wanted something different, something that can make my lashes even longer, so I tried the One Coat Get up and Grow. I have really short lashes that are non-existent without anything on them. I curled them first, then, I applied one coat. It is good for daytime use, just if I’m running errands. It’s a great mascara, just didn’t give me the length I wanted. If you have long lashes and just want one coat, then use this one!
Maybelline Volum’ Express
I’ve used this mascara for years and years. I like it as it has a curved brush. I didn’t like it as the formula must have changed over the past few months. I found that it’s been flaking after I put it on and start combing it out. That’s why I started using Almay instead and experimenting with different kinds that Almay makes. I’ve used Almay in the past, but, I switched back and forth between this one and the Almay One coat.
