For some reason, I was expecting more from this mascara. It's really, really dry compared to almost any other Rimmel mascara I've tried. I have a hard time using most mascaras on my bottom lashes, this brush is too big for them too. The brush is really big and wide, but it doesn't seem to give much volume or length, nor did it "fan my lashes up and out"... I don't know if something's wrong with my particular tube, but I just do not care for this one.
