I tried this after Maybelline one-by-one waterproof mascara was discontinued in the uk and while its not as good it comes a close second. I prefer silicone brushes so I like this. It seperates lashes well and adds a lot of volume. The formula is quite wet though so you have to make sure its dried fully before applying another layer. It lasts all day without smudging, holds curl well and stays put in the rain.
This is the best mascara I've ever used. It's lengthening and volumizing. I never had one clump using this mascara which is huge for me because most mascaras I use give me clumps. It can really hold a curl and last through out the day. The only downside is that it can smudge a little bit. But except for that, this is hands down the best mascara.
I bought this mascara last summer, the color I bought was "Very Black" and my verdict.... This mascara is horrible! I bought the waterproof version because I heard great reviews about it. Decided to try it during a Girls Night Out and half way through the night, I had dark smudges and black flakes under my eyes. I usually like Maybelline's mascara's but this one was a major flop for me. So I have no interest whatsoever in repurchasing this mascara again.
I think this mascara is amazing because it doesn't clump, separates my lashes really well, and I love the brush! Definitely will purchase again! I think this is gonna be my HG mascara!
This is a good mascara, and for one more time I'm not at all disappointed by Maybelline!
It is very convenient- it gives me a great intense look with just a couple of layers.
I find it similar to the other mascaras of the "Volum' Express" series. They are all pretty good for oily lids, but even the waterproof version smudges after a few hours- just a little though.
For now, I wear it every day until I run out, and then I am going to try something else.
In general, it is worth buying it.
I received this as a gift from my room mate. This mascara was a bit more wet than what I'm used to (my HG is the Maybelline One by One waterproof) but wasn't so wet that it weighed my lashes down or felt gross. This mascara comes in a nice, dark black color and holds a curl very well. I'll admit that I wore this for two whole days straight (without removing or reapplying!) and it held a curl and stayed on with minimal smudging. Gives my lashes great length and volume, and I get compliments all the time when I wear this mascara.
The only two cons I have about this are that it does clump your lashes a bit, so having a lash comb is helpful, and the tube is quite large for my small hands. I feel like the brush handle is unnecessarily large and gets in the way of application sometimes.
Overall, the mascara works well for me and I'd repurchase if I wanted a break from One by One. The quality is quite good for your typical drugstore mascara, and the price is fair. Give it a try if you like Maybelline mascaras!
This is my holy grail mascara. It doesn't clump on me, and it holds a curl all day. Only waterproof though, I have so many regular mascaras and they all droop within the first 5 minutes of wear no lie. I can deal with the tedious removal process as long as I have lovely lashes! Repurchase always and for the price who can beat it.
If you have lashes that need curling and you want that curl to last this is the mascara for you
Gives a great balance of length as well as volume
If you don't like to spend 3 extra minutes every night scrubbing it off you may not like it. I use clinique take the day off cleansing balm and it does pretty well but it does take some elbow grease.
I purchased this mascara about a month ago while at Target and doing a quick scan of the reviews on Makeup Alley and thought I'd give this product a go. I am happy to say that I gave it a try because it works pretty well on my Asian lashes, and I love the brush on it. It really helps separate my lashes and make them appear a little fuller. I used to use their old standard Great Lash waterproof mascara in that recognizable way too familiar pink and lime green tube, but now this is my definite go-to mascara.
The only problem that I find is that if my eyes get watery (yawning, irritant, etc) the product will sting your eyes a little, although I found the burning to be worse with their Great Lash product. I have just grown to accept that all mascaras sting your eyes when they get watery. Not sure if it's because I'm a contact lens wearer or not.
I'm really loving this mascara. I curl my lashes, put a really light layer on, let it dry and then apply again (thanks for that tip Gossmakeupartist!). This holds the curl all day - and that's saying something for my pitiful, straight lashes. I wouldn't describe this product as volumizing and when I tried to put another product over the initial layer, things got pretty clumpy. I'm still playing around with it, but holding the curl makes the most difference in how my eyes look in a mascara. Keeper.
Edit 12/13: On my 2nd tube and picked up a couple more. Still love this stuff and increased my rating to 5. As long as I start with a decent curl, it holds it all day long.
One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE mascaras (also included: UD Cannonball & Loreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Waterproof) Anyways, back to the Rocket. I have monolids where my lids fold over the base of my lashes so smudging and losing a curl are big issues with me. This mascara holds a curl honestly like no other and is always smudge free. The huge wand & short bristles can be annoying because i get mascara all over my lids, but I just need to not rush the application. Amazing curl, volume, and decent length. I will repurchase :)
