Volumnising Mascara with sensitive eyes?

I don't ever wear Mascara (or any makeup actually) unless I'm going out in the evening so I like big dramatic eyelashes. Can't be faffed with falsies. I've always used YSL (not sure of the name but a volumnising one) but I've noticed lately it's been making my eyes sting and water.

Has anyone got any recommendations for a good one ideally less than £25? I've tried a Maybeline one and Benefit one (think it was called bad lashes or something..?) But didn't like them. Don't want to waste £££ on one that's no good and haven't got time to go into town to try any so ideally something I can buy online.

I have sensitive eyes and found the body shop one pretty good. I do find I have to apply a few layers, whereas with the ysl one you are done in a few strokes.

I am actually allergic to the Bodyshop ones! Some people say the Clinique one is good. Also Boots no7 do a sensitive one but not volumising I think.

I like the Revlon one which is in a flattish tube with a colour on the lid. I got the lengthening one. Not sensitive but I like the formula - creamier than most that I find gritty. Or how about Dr Hauscka?

I've recently started reacting to mascara too so have bought loads a couple of different ones to try. One of the jane iredale ones I bought is good but has no oomph so best for day wear.
best one so far is ilamasqua. I even had a nap with this on and still didn't get the hideous watering and itching afterwards.
