Maybelline: The Rocket Review


Mascara is a main priority when it comes to my everyday makeup routine; it's the number one product that I couldn't live without (as my natural eyelashes are very blonde!) I need to make sure I coat each individual lash (without clumps!) For me, mascara is all about the brush as it determines what kind of lashes you will end up with. When I'm buying a mascara, I like to browse Boots, pulling each wand out of the tubes to see what the formula is like and the type of brush that comes with it. I hate it when I find a gungey one where the mascara is gloopy and clumpy on the brush - that mascara won't be making an entry into my shopping basket anytime soon! I want a fat brush to give me volume, that certainly doesn't smudge and that's completely waterproof - that's when I came across The Rocket Volum' Express by Maybelline.

If you have oily skin like me (especially on the upper lids and under the eyes) then having a smudge-proof mascara is a must! I've used mascaras in the past that leave black lines under my eye, making it look like I have bags! However, this mascara doesn't seem to do that - but I still make sure to apply a primer under my eyes just in case! The volume you get from it is amazing. It glides on easily and after curling my eyelashes, it gives the effect I have falsies on!

But if you want a more natural look, I wouldn't go for this as it's very black and you may not like the amount of volume it gives (especially to your lower eyelashes!) However I'm loving this mascara so far, after only having it for a week! I'm going to keep using it and see how I get on - you never know, it could become my new favourite mascara!


What do you think of this mascara? Have you tried it?

Thanks for reading!

  2. When I first bought this mascara I wasn't too sure about it. I was ok but I wasn't really that into it. Now I've given it another go I really like it. It's been great to use during the hot weather as it really doesn't budge xx

  3. I have oily skin as well so I feel your panda-eyed pain! The wand looks exactly like Max Factor's False Lash Effect, which was my favourite mascara for years and years - so I'm quite tempted by this!

  4. I tried this mascara when it first came out and I didn't really like it, the formula was great but I really didn't like the brush. I love the new Rimmel Wonder'full Mascara with argan oil in it x

  6. Huge fan of maybelline mascaras and that brush is very similar to max factor's false last effect. I'd seriously recommend you checking that one out :)
