Review: Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

It seems like Maybelline is always coming out with a new mascara, but I can't really complain. Most of them work out pretty nicely for me. I was pretty excited to try out this mascara because it seems to focus a lot on volume, and I love dramatic lashes. If you are a fan of natural mascaras this probably isn't for you because it definitely adds a lot of volume like it claims!


Price: $5-$8 USD
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?

  1. Looks very pretty on you. I have very troublesome eyelashes. They rarely hold up curls. The only one I found so far is the maybelline falsies volume express waterproof. I was just at Walmart looking at the Rockets but they don't have waterproof there. I find waterproof formula work best for my lashes.

  4. I like both Maybelline and covergirl mascaras. They do a great job for their price :) Right now I am using Covergirl Lashblast Clump Buster. It has a great brush that separates the lashes as it coats. I hate chunky lashes!

    Thanks for linking up with the Meet & Greet Blog Hop!
