This Volum' Express Big Eyes mascara retails for around $9.50. You can get it for less in some stores depending on where you shop. I got mine at Walgreens.
I was really excited to try this out because this was the first mascara I've ever used with a separate applicator especially designed for the lower lashes. It features a quick-dry formula that holds lashes in place.
My experience with this mascara has been both good and bad. The lower lash brush works extremely well. It gives them volume and separates them nicely. I really like how it's the perfect size to really catch every single lash, which is sometimes difficult to do on the bottom, but this captures them well. I was overall disappointed with the upper lash applicator. Those it gave my upper lashes more volume and a bit of length, the bristles tended to build up a lot of formula, which caused it to clump my lashes together, giving me the "spider lash" look.
-Great lower lashes brush
-Gives overall big-eyed, natural look
-Not so great upper lash brush
-Clumps lashes together
-Formula build up
-Flakes on the upper lashes
This is a 50/50. I love the lower lash brush. I don't love the upper lash one. The cons all relate to the upper lash mascara, not the lower one. In the end, I'd recommend this product because it still gives a nice enough natural "wide-eyed" look, which is what this mascara is all about. I also wish it helped curl my lashes like some of my other mascaras do, but that's neither here nor there. I also dislike how dry the formula is. I normally do not wait until my lashes are dry to apply another coat, but this one dried immediately, which made applying it a little difficult and, in turn, created more flakes. All in all, it's a good value for a mascara, and I'd buy again solely because of the lower lash applicator.
