I really like this, it's one of the best low budget mascaras. Here's why:

*It is really black so if you have a few fairer coloured lashes it coats them very well.
*Makes your lashes look thick, full and pretty.
*It doesn't flake and stays put for a full day.
*It dries pretty quickly so you don't have to worry about it smudging or ruining your make up.
*Good price for a great mascara.

Overall, an excellent mascara that I will definitely be repurchasing. Highly recommended!

I would say this mascara is okay, it does the job for me. Some dont like the fact that it's quite hard to get off, but as I have really runny eyes this is only a plus for me. It doesnt give amazing lenght or thickness, i'd say its average. It's buildable though, and I find that it doesnt clump easily. Also I like the packaging, it has a fairly large brush with tiny bristels to paint with. I like this type of brush, but I know not everyone does.

Again, I typically like Maybelline Mascaras best, but I was disappointed by this one as well. It doesn't clump- which is nice- but it also doesn't thicken well.

I'm a fans of Maybelline mascara, been using maybelline colossal and like it so much. Then i changed to this rocket mascara after reading all the positives reviews. It does lengthen my lashes and volume, but it goes abit clump when i apply for the third coat. The things which i against the most is this mascara doesn't hold the curl at all! Im asian and usually i will curl my lashes with eyelash curler, then only i apply mascara,usually it works but for this mascara, eventhough i have curled my lashes with eyelash curler, but once i applied this mascara, my lashes point up straight, my curl gone.
I will never purchase this mascara again. or i have to find a way to hold my curl.

I'm surprised that this mascara doesn't have better reviews. It's probably the best drugstore mascara I've tried...other than Voluminous Carbon Black. I love Voluminous but it doesn't hold a curl at all. This one does. The formula is super black, which, frankly, is hard to find in a mascara! (I also have Cover Girl Clump Crusher, which people seem to love...and that's more of a soft black...no thanks). So this is very black, holds a curl, creates GREAT volume and length. It's honestly almost perfect. The ONLY con, is that it is hard to remove. I use Sonia Kashuk waterproof eye makeup remover, which is an awesome product, but even with that I really have to work to get this mascara completely off. I don't like that because it feels damaging to my lashes. If you go at it slowly though, it does all come off.

Other than that, this is truly a great drugstore mascara and yes, I would purchase again.

I love this mascara!!! I would defiantly buy it again in a heartbeat! It goes your lashes a great volume and makes them appear longer but doesn't clump. I would recommend it to anyone!

I loved this mascara except that it gave me raccoon eyes. It smeared a little on my lower lashes. I loved how black it is...the volume and length too.....only problem that it smeared. Will keep trying to work with it.

I've been using this mascara for the last few months and I must say I love it, Maybelline has created another winner for me! I like this product so much, I'll even say (in my opinion) that it is better then Benefit's They're Real Mascara! I'll elaborate this in a bit.

My eyelashes are uncooperative, and always require a mascara that provides volume and length. This mascara not only fit all my needs, it comes with a cheap price tag which just makes me all the more happier.

I've read a few negative reviews on this product, mostly concerning about the difficulty of removing this product. YES, this product has a thicker and more "heavy duty" formula so it will take more then the usually 1-2 minutes to take off, however it is not impossible, Frankly I have found success by using either the Clinique Eye Make Up Remover or the Neutrogena Eye Make Up Remover. All you need is a little patience ladies! ;)

For me, I found that this mascara is better that They're Real for the following reasons:
- it is slightly easier to remove (key word, slightly)
- it gives evident length and volume almost identical to They're Real
- there is less clumps in my lashes, and i always am able to steer clear of "spider lashes" (the applicator thing is what makes all the difference)
- very build able
- the formula (i feel) is lighter then They're Real; so your lashes should stay up longer, it dries pretty fast compared to They're Real
- great dupe for They're Real... one third of the price!

This mascara has gotten me plenty of compliments.... more often then when I wear They're Real from Benefit... not sure if it's just coincidence though. Overall I really am happy with this product, I probably will be repurchasing in the future when I run out; unless Maybelline is able to surprise me with a new mascara that I fall in love with.

I absolutley hated this product! The latex formula makes it very hard to get off. It is not worth the cute package, nor the price. I normally love Maybelline but this made me swear them off for a while. don't waste the money. Because if you do you will need to buy a good makeup emover, makeup cleansing cloths and good cleanser.
