After trying, I don't know, 800 mascaras throughout the years, I think I have finally found my match. I usually like a mascara the first few uses, will write a review about how much I like it, and then find out I'm a huge liar when I don't actually end up liking the mascara like the next day. So, before writing this review, I used this mascara in its full entirety, and I can confidently say that I love it and will be going out to buy another tube! It took me a while to get used to the brush. I have used Lash Blast before, and although this brush is similar, the bristles seem a tad bit stiffer, so I was poking my eye every single time I applied it, but I got used to it and no longer do that. I love the volume and length this gives my lashes. They look so big and almost fake, but if you're looking for a natural look, one coat will do it. I will say though that you have to consistently apply coats. One time, when I was applying, the phone rang and I went to answer it, came back, and was not able to do another coat because the one I was working on was pretty much dry already and did not want to build anymore. Also, it is really, really, difficult to get this stuff off. Not waterproof difficult, but to the point where you're confused as to why it is so hard to get off since it's not waterproof. I just use a makeup remover and it will eventually come off, it just takes longer than what I would prefer. Aside from those two things though, I think this is a really awesome mascara and I will continue to purchase it because I love the look it gives to my lashes!
After reading the above reviews I decided to give this one a try , I got it on sale at sears
I didn't care for the tube and your really don't get much for your money . It did hold a curl and gave my lashes volume , nothing special. It is very hard to remove and I spent so much time taking it off . I wouldn't repurchase again .
My former HG mascara was Covergirl LashBlast, but I swear over the last few months the formula has changed. Call me crazy, but it seems to be flakey and smudge a lot now. So I picked up The Rocket and was really impressed. It gives great volume and length, holds a curl well, and is jet black. Removal is a little difficult, but I find that using Dove soap and then a make-up remover wipe works just fine. I like to layer this over Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes and I get perfect, thick, long, and separated lashes that last all day long.
- no flaking
- no smudging
- holds curl
- no volume
Comments: Well, at least it doesn't flake. I didn't notice any volume and it clumped easily. The formula isn't too wet or dry, which is nice. It just didn't provide me with the results it should've.
Will not repurchase.
I saw my sister using this product and I ABSOLUTELY loved what it did for her eyelashes! I bought myself one and I LOVED the volume. However, after the first use, I was greatly disappointed. In trying to remove the product, I removed quite a few of my lashes! I'm so disappointed :( It is a great concept, however, horrible for removal. My sister and myself stopped using this product after two applications. Greatly disappointed in Maybelline. Not investing money in this again.
I looovvve this mascara! I used to use high end brands of mascara but replacing them every couple of months was becoming costly! I have a problem with panda eyes so i am always shy about trying new mascaras. I had been previously using l'oreal 4d lash architech as i love loads of lashes and then on the bottom lashes i used Bourgeois volume clubbing mascara as this is a budge-proof formula that avoids any smudging i usually get underneath. A friend recommended rocket express to me and, yes, i am now totally converted! Its gives instant volume, length, no clumping, dries pretty fast and guess what? No smudges! I can even use it on bottom lashes so saves me using 2 mascaras! Its also easy to remove unlike volume clubbing mascara. If im going to be picky about this the only downside is the brush is quite thick so it is abit tricky to really get into the inner corners without poking yourself in the eye! But with holding the brush verticly, using the tip of the brush and a gentle 'wiggle' you can get the job done. This is a great product that does what it says and is good value for those on a budget:)
I bought this mascara in December so I've had it for a good amount of time. I'm writing this review upon tossing the tube of mascara.
Personally, I did not find this mascara to be all that stellar. You have to work with the brush a certain way and you have to be very very fast or else the mascara will dry on your lashes and start to clump up. I didn't like the formula or the brush.
When I had time to play with the brush and what technique to use to get decent lashes, the mascara wasn't too bad. But I'm always on the go and I like to swipe on a few strokes of mascara and have it come out looking great.
What did I like about the mascara? The colour. It was nice and superdark exactly the way I like my mascara.
This was a decent mascara, but I've tried others that are much better. I will not be repurchasing this mascara.
I got this mascara a few days ago and I'm liking it so far. It holds up a curl decently for me and it stays almost perfectly throughout the day, which is good even though it takes a bit of work to remove. It lengthens as well as volumizes, but it doesn't give as much volume as I hoped. The brush is also a little hard and it takes a while to get used to, especially for the lower lashes because of the size. Overall, this mascara is decent for it's price and it gets the job done.
Loveeee this. Makes your lashes Super dark, voluminous, and long. However it is a bit clumpy after a few coats and it is also harder to remove than a regular mascara.
At first I really liked this product. It really defined and lengthened my lashes although I didn't feel like it did much for thickening and volumizing.
However, I'm surprised that more people did mention this in their reviews but it is extremely difficult to get off!!! It makes your lashes hard as hell and the removal is 10x worse than a waterproof mascara. For this reason alone, I would not repurchase.
