AW YEAH THIS GUY IS A KEEPER :D! I've been loyal to my maybelline falsies and full n' soft. BUT...I wanted to try this guy since there has been lots of positive hype around it.
I did buy the waterproof version, so you know, since I have oily lids and lashes which refuse to hold a curl. short and straight stubby asian lashes are what I have to work with. I feel like this does just as well as my maybelline falsies but separates a tad better. I know, so meticulous of me to even notice but I do. The bulky wand really hugs and seperates my lashes with ease. No clumps, nada! No matter how many coats I swipe on it stays looking pretty. It lengthens and adds volume very well and most importantly it holds curls.
I was tempted to get the mega plush mascara and I'm glad I didn't. This is a new staple mascara for me :D For only $6 at target, it's such a steal.
I am a fan of mascara's. But this one was a disappointment. It didn't give me volume and it wouldn't cruel my lashes. Maybe I just got a bad batch or something. I'am willing to give it a try again but not right now
Great mascara separates and thickens for only 5 bucks. Love it.
I think people have too high of expectations when it comes to a 5 dollar mascara. Mascaras are "goopy" and there's nothing wrong with a wet mascara! However this mascara has done AMAZING things for my lashes. It lengthens, volumizes and is super black in color. And it never flakes. Which is an issue with me for a lot of maybelline mascaras. If you love loreal voluminous carbon black, you will LOVE this. It is just as buildable and has a sexy "clump" look if you put enough on. This does age very nicely just as voluminous, the formula dries, and I get the same separation as lash blast, but more length and volume. Amazing!
Very hard to remove. Dries out quickly. Had high hopes for this. Used to use Maybelline The Falsies & Cover Girl Lash Blast, which are both, in my opinion, superior to this. As for volume, it is ok. Will not repurchase.
I love this product. Be careful as it may be watery the first few days and clump a tiny bit. But do not get disappointed. After about a week, it gets a little more dry and then, it is like a miracle!
It curls lashes, adds volume and length. If you have long or medium lashes, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this. It is one of my favorite mascaras.
I heard a lot of great things about this mascara, I went out and bought it. Nope. Big mistake. It clumps a lot after 2 coats for me. It does add length, so I found a new trick with this mascara because I didn't wanna waste my money, so take your favorite mascara, other than this one, and curl your lashes, and use this only on the TIPS of your lashes, and then keep extending it, but make sure you're not using it like you normally would. Put some of the product on the tips until you see that it lengthens. Then, use your favorite mascara like you normally would. It gives the same results, except it's less clumpier. ( Depends on your favorite mascara )
I hope this helps the people that found it clumpy. It's great for bottom lashes too though, just do the same steps like I said, but reversed! :) Overall I didn't really like this mascara, too clumpy, and the bristles hurt.
Too much product comes out on the brush and it just clumps like crazy!
This was a slightly better then average mascara. It added some length and fullness to my lashes, but once in a while it will clump badly if I try to put to much mascara on my eyelashes. The wand is really huge which I like in my mascaras and I would definitely buy it again because it is cheaper then my bare minerals mascara that I buy from ulta. Give this mascara a try :)
EDIT: I've done this for years, it's my secret beauty tip that I'm finally revealing--if you have the time, apply your mascara laying down looking in a compact mirror. If you wanna test to see the difference, do it. Apply mascara to one eye laying down (flat, head on one pillow) then other eye a regular way, like looking the bathroom mirror. This did not flake nor smudge. Actually it never does whenever I have it on, even when I take a nap flaking and smudging is very minimal. This is Maybelline kicking Cover Girl's Lash Blast's ass, which is not only CG's ONLY quality product, but hard to believe. But believe it! The brushes are similar, I think the Rocket's is bigger though. Love getting the best lashes for a low amount of money.
OH. MY GOD. I. AM SO. HAPPYYYYYYYYYY!!!! I have been working w Maybelline Mega Plush, Maybelline Falsies Flared, and Pixi Lash Booster (not all at once, just whatever I feel like). I hate Falsies, I should've thrown my tube away a long time ago. It flakes as you put it on until you take it off. Enough. Mega Plush and Lash Booster are my favorites, but they are so identical that I would never suggest buying LB unless it was identical in price to MP. To be detailed, I despise MP's brush--it is too big and I often get mascara on my lid and I hate that but what I hate even more is poking my eye frequently because the brush is so big! LB is the inkiest dripping wet black mascara I've ever seen and I love that about it. Okay, onto why the Rocket is my favorite mascara in the world right now. My lashes never curl. It's like they die down from the weight of any product on it. My lashes naturally stick straight out. The Rocket is THE ONLY mascara that curls my lashes UP! And they stay that way! Mega Plush may create more thickness, but what's the point when my lashes can't stay up for others to see them?! It's like a guy having a big package but unable to get excited hahahahaha. If you already have thick lashes, you will have the most amazing ones with the Rocket for around $4 and some change. I would say this mascara has super powers in curling, lengthening, seperating, defining, and NO CLUMPING YAYYY. Another lovely thing, the brush is perfect, it's not too big nor too small. You can reach those lashes on the inner rim, you can get that hard-to-reach section that is the bottom of the outermost lashes. Love this. LOVE THIS! Will update after my 24 hour test to tell on any flaking or smudging, whether it's minimal or not.
Just tried it on my bottom lash for the review (because I never actually do my bottom lash line) and it did not flake, did not clump and smear or smudge. I look like my girl friends on facebook with photos upclose with their long awesome lashes. It just makes eyes so much more beautiful. I look like a dolly. :>
