Maybelline Big Eyes Volum'Express Mascara

There's only one thing we love more than a brilliant mascara wand. That's TWO brilliant mascara wands, in one product - which is what Maybelline's new Big Eyes Volum'Express delivers.

At one end is a fat, spiral, chunky wand described as a 'lash push-up brush'.  But what's especially interesting to us is the grippy small brush, at the other end of the packaging:  an echo of the fantastic Guerlain Le 2 Mascara (but at a fraction of the price), it's brilliant for precision application to the small lashes at the inner corners of the eyes, and for bottom lashes.

The formulation itself seems nicely smudge-proof.  Maybelline promises the mascara 'makes eyes look up to two times bigger' - we can't quite see that, but at this price, it's so worth checking out.
