Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express Washable Mascara

By Beautifulbuns

After reading today’s review, you will totally realize why I seldom review mascaras (or rather, after seeing today’s photos). I’ve got terrible, terrible panda eyes (and is that a hint of millia seed I see?!)

But then, for the greater love of every beauty junkie who comes here, I have sacrificed my public reputation and put my undereyes on display. Prepare yourselves!

The special ultra-sonic brush that’s meant for more precise application

And yes, that’s me with zero makeup on except for mascara. zilch. And nope, I didn’t even bother curling my lashes.

Comparing 1 coat vs 2 coats of mascara – quite a decent uplifting effect considering I didn’t even curl my usual poker-straight stubborn lashes

I say…

This is actually pretty decent.  In the photos above, I did not use any eyelash curler, and I also didn’t use an eyelash comb.

  • The bristles are different from the usual brush applicators – they can get rather prickly if they come into contact with your eyelids or the base of the lashes, so be careful.
  • One coat gives a pretty decent extension effect and there’s not a lot of clumping.  It also uplifts the lashes (and mine are usually as straight as Line’s Brown bear’s expression).
  • Two coats gives it a more dramatic effect – more volume and more intense color. It also begins to clump very slightly, but nothing to the point that irritates me. Thankfully, the lashes remain up.
  • Smudging is quite minimal (not zero), and the mascara is easily washed off with water, coming of relatively cleanly in clumps of fiber (vs a complete smudge and washed-out effect).

Overall, not too bad a mascara indeed – it extends and lifts, but I do wish it had a slight bit more curling effect. But well, it’s aptly named The Rocket – besides China and North Korea, I doubt any other country’s rockets have taken off in a curved projectory hurhurhur.
