Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara Review.

Recently I hopped on the bandwagon and bought the latest mascara from Maybelline.

I've always enjoyed using Maybelline mascaras and they generally tend to be some of my favourites so I was excited to try this one!

The mascara comes in the typical Maybelline packaging. This one is purple and pink....lovely!

The mascara promises 'Lashes have 8x more volume, clump-free, even from root to tip. Super fast'.
That's a big promise to live up to!


This mascara has a plastic wand and it's pretty big as you can see! It really reminds me of the Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara! 

I've found that you need to wipe the brush a little as you get too much product at first. Hopefully after a few more uses this will improve. 

One great thing about this mascara is that it dries with just enough time to apply a second coat if you wanted to without taking ages and risking getting it all over your lids!

This mascara definitely added a lot of drama and volume to my lashes! After eight hours wear it was still going strong and held the curl really nicely.

I think this mascara is going to quickly replace my love for the Maybelline Colossal! At the moment in Boots it is priced at £5.99 which I believe is just an introductory price so buy it cheap while you can! 

Another great product. Well done Maybelline you delivered again!
