Maybelline The Rocket Volume Express Mascara: Review and Pictures


Hello lovelies! Firstly, I wanted to thank to all of you who commented on my previous post and for being so sweet and supportive! <33 Now, as promised, I am here to update to guys on my thoughts on the Maybelline’s The Rocket Volume Express Mascara, which I got a few weeks ago.

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara

As you may know I am a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras. Their quality is amazing and they are really affordable! And this one didn’t fail to impress me and it has won a special place in my heart! I love it! :) I know that probably every beauty blogger and their dog rave about The Rocket mascara at the moment, but I figured that another positive review won’t hurt anyone hehe!

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara

The Rocket mascara comes with a nice plastic wand, which typically I am not a huge fan of, but it this case it works fine. The wand shape kind of reminds me of Covergirl’s Lasblast Mascara and I love it. It has larger club style applicator, which has shorter spikes around the tip. This makes the application of the corner lasher much easier in my opinion. I know many people disagree about that but I find it helpful! :) I love The Rocket’s packaging as well. The contrast between the hot pink and the royal blue is absolutely beautiful and cute! It is not super bulky and you can easily carry it around in your makeup bag! <3

As for the formulation of The Rocket Mascara, I can just say that I am really loving it! The mascara has relatively light and a bit wetter formula, which allows you to glide it across you lashes easily. At the same time, however, it gives the lashes super intense black look, which I adore!

I got the regular version of The Rocket because I couldn’t find the waterproof one, but I’ve noticed that it holds curl really well and it stys on place all day. I wear the mascara on both my upper and lower lashes and I have never ended up with panda eyes! :)) The Rocket really separates your lashes and lengthens them beautifully. As far as volume goes though, I honestly think that this isn’t the strongest property of The Rocket! It’s not like it doesn’t volumize at all, it does, but I just feel like it could’ve performed better, especially since it is claimed to be a “volumizing mascara”! Oh, the mascara also doesn’t clump! :)

Before!
After! :)
One thing that I hate about The Rocket is that it is really difficult to remove! Let me tell you – it’s an experience lol! I have to use multiple cotton pads and to rub my eyes really hard, which is not only extremely bad for your eyes but it also hurts! And I don’t even have the waterproof version…

Overall, I really love what The Rocket does to my lashes – they are nicely separated, super long and the mascara is completely smudge-free! These are the top three things I look for mostly is mascaras so that’s why I adore this one so much! However, if you are someone who wants more volume, then I’m afraid that this one may not be your best bet! :(

Also, with today’s announcement that Google Reader is going and with the unclear future of GFC, I wanted to let you all know that made a Bloglovin’ account and you can follow me there if you like my blog! Check it out here! :)) Thank you in advance for the support and I will talk with you very soon! <33

XO,
Andrea

  36. Oh wow, that looks good. I see volume and lengthening. The shorter spikes at the tip would definitely help get the corner lashes. I am definitely going to have to try this one out.
