REVIEW | MAYBELLINE THE ROCKET VOLUM’ EXPRESS MASCARA

A couple of weeks ago the time had come for me to buy a new mascara after my beloved Maybelline The Falsies had run dry, so I decided to go with the hype and try Maybelline's The Rocket Volum' Express. Believe me this mascara is absolutely worth the hype I fell in love with it instantly!

Normally I don't like plastic brushes as they seem to generally not work as well as fibre brushes however with this mascara It does not seem to bother me as much as I feel like it gives just as good results as a fibre brush maybe even better! The only downside I have found with this brush is that it is quite fat which can make it difficult in getting the really small lashes but I barely notice it so I think if you can get over that fact then you will surely love this mascara as much as I do.

The main thing that I look for in a mascara is volume that is my main priority, some go for length I personally prefer more volume than length on my lashes, this is why this mascara is perfect for me as you can see it gives a lot of volume and length (which is an added bonus!). I chose to get the waterproof version as for years now I have had the problem of my mascara literally melting off my eyelashes throughout the day which is tremendously annoying! For some crazy reason I never thought to try a waterproof mascara and now I have I am never going back, it stayed on all day and didn't smudge underneath my eyes.

  4. Great review :) I still haven't found my all time favourite mascara as I'm always searching for and trying new ones. I'm currently using Natural Collection Waterguard mascara and it's surprisingly good for £1.99 and stays on all day ! xx

  6. I'm always searching for the perfect mascara but usually fall back on L'Oréal Collagene 24 mega volume as it's really quick and easy to apply! Diorshow is the perfect investment mascara though, it's £22ish but I couldn't live without it for nights out!
