OMFG! best mascara ever. but a single flaw. it's SUPER hard to remove. I have to take neutrogena makeup remover wipes AND soap and water. but besides that, it's the best mascara I've EVER used and I use it everyday. 💕

I have never been a fan of mascara. First, I have straight asian lashes which means that they usually go back down after applying a coat of mascara. Second, they're a pain in the butt to take off. I'm lazy and mascara requires me to do extra work because removing makeup is ugh. Third, the first time i used a mascara, it made my lashes look really sparse and weird. So usually, i just curl them and tight line and that's it.

The formula of the mascara is quite wet and so when it dries, my lashes goes back down. So I do need to recurl them. It does flake just a bit. I can see some mascara bits on my upper lids and a few on my lower but they don't annoy me. It also smudges under my bottom lashes but I like the smudgy, smokey-ish look so I don't mind at all. It also isn't that hard to remove so that's always a plus. The brush is plastic/silicon and the bristles are quite short. It separates my lashes really well after one coat but starts to get all spidery and clumpy after that. I don't really find it volumizing but it does lengthen my lashes. When I first applied it to my bottom lashes, oh my gosh. I loved it. I also really like the packaging, the blue and the bright pink really stood out.

This mascara is what i gravitate towards everyday. It definitely changed my mind about mascaras. The price is also really good. I got it for less than 4$ when it was on a BOGO sale.

VERY volumizing, but in a sturdy way. I was hoping for voluminous lashes that looked wispy. With the Rocket, you get crazy volume, but it is not remotely natural. Quite theatrical. I also cannot wash it completely off, even with multiple removers, oil based and otherwise.

I love this mascara and prefer it over the more expensive Beneit They're Real mascara I was using previously. This product enhances my lashes making them appear longer and fuller without the clumps. Will definitely be repurchasing.

great mascara, almost on my 3rd tube now. i use this after my loreal telesopic to make my lashes really thick. Its not the best to use it on its own cuz it will only make them thick and not long, thats why i like using a lengthening mascara first and a thickening mascara next, and the rocket is perfect for that.

I am finally at the point where I won't purchase anything other than drugstore mascara. I haven't found one that I really like, and I just can't paying for another high end mascara, even if I can return it if I don't like it. I'd rather try 5 drugstore mascaras and just use them for several months and see how they perform long term. Anyway, enough about that. I had heard some good things about this mascara, some not so good. I was actually looking for lash sensational when I picked this up by default. When I ultimately found the lash sensational, it was a couple of dollars more so I decided to try this one instead. First, it clumps like crazy. Even with one coat, I need to clean it up with a lash comb. It flakes and smudges, but not a lot, and it takes a few hours before that happens. It weighs down my lashes because there's so much product on them, even after I comb them out, which means forget about getting any curl. So I'll use this for several months, but I won't be buying it again.

EDIT 3/8/15: I couldn't continue to use this. I was so tired of getting flecks of mascara all over my face when I combed out my lashes.
