Almay Get Up & Grow Mascara-Blackest Black

I’ve been raving about this mascara for months on YouTube but never done a blog post on it. I must correct that cause this stuff is really GOOD.









Some information from on the formula:

  • instantly longer looking lashes
  • anti-breakage pro-vitamin formula defends against damage so lashes continue to grow their longest
  • unique brush shape fits eye contours perfectly to reach every last lash
  • clump free, all day wear
  • ophthalmologist tested
  • suitable for contact lens wearers

I don’t use any other Almay products except the Makeup Eraser Sticks. I love those! Ok back to the mascara. It gives me length and volume. I really love the brush wand. It’s huge! For under $10 this mascara is one of the best at the drugstore in my opinion. My lashes look so long after applying this. And my lashes stay soft no matter how many coats of color I apply also. It’s right up there with my Holy Grail mascara’s which are Maybelline Colossal and L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black. Get Up & Grow comes in black, black brown, and blackest black. They also have a waterproof version of the mascara.

Take a look at the before and after shots I took on the fly.

    I’m so glad you talked about this! This replaced Benefit’s badGAL as my HG mascara! I was hesitant to try it because like you, I don’t use any of Almay’s stuff. I find most of it to be gimmicky. But this stuff is AMAZING! It makes my lashes touch my eyebrow! I can’t say enough good things about it! Also, my Lorac palette will be here tomorrow. I squealed a little when I package stalked it this morning!

    Perfect time for this post :) I bought this mascara last night (Rite Aid has it in sale this week for $5.99) n I used it this morning, I liked it :) I didn’t have to use another coat from another brand on top of it

    I tried it and wish I loved it as much as everyone else. For me, it migrated horribly all over my eyes, much like a raccoon or panda, the full circle. it was not a pretty sight =)
