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.

I like this mascara.
My only dislike, is that is very hard to take off...such a shame.
This is the only reason I m not going to buy it again, I don t like to see everyday a lash comming off...

This is literally the best mascara I have ever used! I was using Dior brand mascaras before and I switched to The Rocket after multiple people telling me how great it was. I have now gone through at least 6 bottles both normal and waterproof! My lashes are short, really thin, and go downwards but after I put two coats of The Rocket on it adds INCREDIBLE length and does not look clumpy at all! It also does a great job at separating my lashes! The brush takes a little getting used to but is worth it! The waterproof version doesn't smudge at all either. I have tried it in the ocean and swimming pool. I think the water makes your lashes look better!! If you're looking for a mascara this is the bomb dot com especially if you are looking for length!!

So far this mascara is my absolute favorite ! Makes eyelashes look verry long and adds alot of volume , so if you're like me and have small lashes i would recommend this mascara. Personally i think the packaging is super cute and the big brush helps separate my lashes very well.
