Almay One Coat Dial Up Mascara Review

So today I went to buy some candy from a local shop and saw this Almay One Coat Dial Up Mascara. Now, I have had used two compacts by Almay and they were awesome so I have somewhat respect for this brand. Also the mascara look kind of mechanical and the geek inside me totally digged it. Plus I have a thing for mascara, I have protruding hooded eye so I rarely ever wear eye make up (liner or shadow) but I wear mascara. A lot. So all in all, it was justified.

Anyway it looked like a nail polish. At one point I thought it also had a eye lash primer but here were no indication at the label. It just said to move the dial to one of the three levels to get different kind of coverage.

The mascara wand is pretty regular. I like the wands which are kind of angled, provides better control, but I can do with the regular ones as well.

I tried the 2nd dial to see what kind of coverage it provides.

It was good for just one coating, wouldn’t you say?

There was some clumping though...

So anyway, it took some time to dry. And it was not waterproof (the label didn’t say waterproof and I totally washed it off with water) which is again a good thing for a regular day-to-day mascara because waterproof make-up removal can be a drag. At a price of tk350 (less than $%5) it is a pretty decent mascara.
So if you are in market for an affordable mascara, you may try this one out. It will be helpful if you do not have time for double or triple coating but want that flexible result anyway.
