Rocket Volume Lashes

6 comments


After recently running out of my favourite mascara, Benefit's They're Real, I wanted to try out some of the other mascara's in my stash, so I didn't have to spend £19 when I had about 5 mascaras that I hardly use. I picked out Maybelline's Rocket Volume Express Mascara first, I think I'd only used this mascara a few times before, and I was never really wowed by it. Over the past two months or so, I've been using this mascara everyday, it has completely replaced my Benefit mascara. It does exactly the same job, for a fraction of the price!

Retailing at £7.99, it's less than half the price of They're Real. This mascara lengthens lashes to the max, and does add volume; hence the name Rocket Volume. It really does live up to my expectations that I had when I first tried it!


As you can see, the brush is plastic; which a lot of people have hassle with, but I really couldn't use a mascara without a plastic brush. I just think it really aids in application, lengthening and preventing clumping. Saying that, they're very very painful when you accidentally stab yourself in the eye and cry making your makeup run. Very frustrating. 

This is now my favourite mascara, and I'll be repurchasing it again and again. It just beats all the other mascaras I've used, but I still love my Benefit They're Real for the nights where I want to feel a little bit special. I'm a sucker for anything high end.  Just me? 

What's your favourite mascara at the moment?
