Review: Maybelline Rocket Mascara

Last week I ran out of the mascara that I was using for my day to day make up, so needed to pick up a new one. I was previously using the Rimmel Scandal Eyes mascara but I really wasn't mad about that one so I thought I'd find something new to try.

As its more affordable, I tend to stick to drugstore make up for my everyday look so I had a look around Boots. 

The mascara I chose was the new one by Maybelline, "Rocket".

This mascara is the latest addition to Maybellines "Volum' Express" range, which also includes mascaras such as the "Colossal", "Falsies" and "One by One".  I had used all of these mascaras several times in the past and have often enjoyed these products, so I didn't hesitate to pick up the latest offering. Also, as a new product to the shelves it was on an introductory offer at only £5.99, another reason not to refuse!

I picked this up on Saturday so have only used it for two days so far, but the results are looking good...

The range focuses on giving volume to the lashes which is definitely noticeable with this product. It is said to give your lashes up to 8x more volume, and I agree it does this, but what I found I love best about this product is how amazing it is at giving my lashes length too! 

This is the brush which Maybelline are calling their exclusive "Jet Glide Brush". It is quite thick, with very fine and flexible bristles which help to define your lashes whilst adding volume, and leave zero clumps!

I am definitely glad I picked up this mascara, I knew it was unlikely to let me down if it was from the same range that I've enjoyed so many times before, and it certainly hasn't!  I can put this mascara on in the morning, go about my daily activities and find it still looks almost perfect by the evening. 

For me, I think this mascara has the whole package - it defines and separates lashes, adds length and volume, is long lasting on the lashes and comes in at a low price! You can't get much better than that.

Have any of you tried this product yet?

  9. This may sound like a weird question but does the mascara smell? I have had an issue with the last few Maybelline mascaras I've had having this odor that gives me a headache- which sucks cause other than that I think their mascaras are great!

    Thanks so much for checking out my blog; I'm going to subscribe to yours now :)

    1. I see what you mean, it has a slight smell but I wouldn't say it's too noticeable, I just compared with some other mascaras I have and you can smell it slightly more than the others but I wouldn't say it's too strong :)

      thankyou very much, I have followed back !
