Review: Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara
Claims: This mascara claims to give "explosive, beautiful lashes". It also claims to give lots of volume instantly.
This mascara has a pretty large brush with short plastic bristles.
Here are my eyelashes without an mascara on them:
And here are my eyelashes with two coats of the mascara on:
I got a nice amount of volume with this mascara. It makes my eyelashes look very thick and they are a lot more noticeable with this mascara than mascaras that focus on lengthening the eyelashes. Usually I use more natural looking mascaras like Maybelline Mega Plush, so when I first used this one I was thinking "Whoa, my eyelashes are super clumpy". Then I thought about how most volumizing mascaras give this effect and your lashes are supposed to look very thick. After using this for a few weeks it has grown on me. I actually like it now, but I probably won't be repurchasing it because it isn't the most amazing mascara. It does a pretty nice job of not flaking or smudging though even though this version isn't waterproof.
If you really like dramatic eyelashes then this might be worth trying. This isn't my favorite mascara, but I will continue to use it when I want very bold, thick eyelashes.
What do you think about this mascara? What do you look for in mascara?
