Almay Mega Volume Mascara Review – My first VoxBox


In September I received my very first VoxBox from I was so excited when I got the email saying I made the short list and even more excited when I actually got the VoxBox in the mail.

I love mascara, whether high end or from the drug store. I tend to lean towards drug store mascara because I find they perform just as good as most high end ones and tend to cost 1/3 of the price! Recently my go-to has been Lash Paradise so I was excited to try this one from Almay.

The brush is shaped like a megaphone, starting off small and getting larger at the end. I thought the shape was strange because it would be too large for the inside of my eye, however the bristles are fairly strong and do a good job of not creating clumps even closer to the inside of the eye. It truly is a one coat mascara, any more than one coat and it gets clumpy and spidery. The formula is not too dry, but dry enough to create some volume. It can occasionally leave some transfer on my eyelid, but not enough to bother me. I really enjoy this for quick makeup days because it gives a good amount of volume with one coat and you don’t find yourself fussing with it too much. I have never seen a mascara perform so well after one coat!

If you are looking for a quick everyday mascara I highly recommend this one. I tend to like more dramatic looking lashes so I only reach for this one on very light makeup days, but I have already got a lot of use from it for those days I am in a rush!


Let me know if you have tried out this mascara and if so do you agree with my review!

  1. I have an Almay twist-up eyeliner that I use on my upper waterline when I do my makeup and I love it, but I’ve never tried anything else by their makeup line. This mascara sounds lovely (: Influenster is super fun, right?
