Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express | Review

Hi Guys! As you may know I purchased Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express this week. I have used Lancome Hypnose Drama for the past 3 years and wanted to try something else. Hypnose Drama retails at £22.00 so I really wanted to try something cheaper, I heard so many people raving about the rocket so thought I would give it a go. 

Maybelline's description of the rocket is "You'll love this mascara because it's glidable and goes on lashes so cleanly, leaving a glossy finish. You don't need to apply many coats as our Jet Glide brush charges big, explosive volume in Rocket time."

My first impression was that the packaging is quite cool and I find that the shape makes it easy to hold and apply. I was a bit worried as it is a plastic brush and I usually prefer the traditional bristle brushes. This was £7.99 which isn't really cheap but I have found that mascaras are generally over priced in drugstores on the plus side it was in the 3 for 2 at BOOTS, saying that it is still a big difference on the £22.00 I'd usually spend on lancome.

So overall I do really like this mascara I feel that it can clump so it isn't "clump free" but then I think that all mascaras can. I think that it gave my lashes a good amount of length and volume whilst also giving them a nice curl. I will definitely  buy this again as the price tag isn't that bad and its just as good maybe better than any high end mascara that I have tried.

Have you tried this mascara? What were your thoughts?



  1. Your eyelashes are already pretty long! But the mascara looks good :) xx Lovely blog!

    1. Thank you! I thought I had really short lashes until I took these pictures and realised they aren't that bad! x
