Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

Maybelline's new launch for Spring 2013, The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara ($8) is available at stores now. This claims to deliver explosive lashes with mega volume and length with a smooth, even finish and zero clumps! The pink and blue packaging is super nice and very Maybelline!






The brush is a very fancy looking plastic wand that doesn't look extremely huge, but the short spikes look like they'll do a great job with lengthening. I picked up 'Blackest Black' which indeed is an extremely intense, slightly glossy black. Although washable, I had a little trouble getting it all off, even with an oil based remover. The brush is great for length & volume as it pulls lashes up, gently giving them a lift, which in turn adds more length. In terms of volume, my short stubby lashes were quite plumped up and much thicker. There's quite a bit of clumping, but nothing you can't work with and far less compared to a lot of other Volum' Express mascaras from Maybelline. The formula can make lashes slightly stiff, which is something I don't like here. I always curl my lashes and this one holds the curl very well. There's very minimal smudging or flaking even after a good 8 hours.





Overall, a good mascara for volume & length, especially if you have practically non-existent lashes like me. Again, the formula needs a little patience to work with, if you want your lashes to look natural and not spiky. Probably one of my favourite mascaras among the ones Maybelline has put out recently.

Have you tried the Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara?

  3. It'll be months before this mascara reaches Australia I think. I'm just not that big a fan of those silicon brushes. I'll give this a go though, since I really like Maybelline mascaras.

    1. I like Maybelline mascaras too! The brush isn't actually that bad, performance wise, but I did end up poking my eyes a couple of times :P

  6. I just bought this and I LOVE it. The brush is so much better for clumps since my lashes are so long!
