I love Maybelline mascaras, so whenever they come out with something new, I want to try it! I'm a fan of The Falsies, Mega Plush and now The Rocket! I was a little nervous to try this because I don't usually use mascaras with stiff bristles, but after watching/reading reviews I decided to buy it. This stuff works amazing and is comfortable while applying even though the bristles are stiff. It glides on smooth and within one coat it looks amazing.
PROS: The color. I bought mine in "Blackest Black" and within one coat my lashes were super dark. I love this because some mascaras take 3 coats to get a dramatic look, and with this it's super easy. I also really love the stiff bristle brush. It sweeps my lashes root to tip and is easy to work with, even for the inner and outer lashes. I like that the mascara has a stopper so you don't get a whole bunch of unwanted product on the brush and the packaging is cute.
CONS: I bought the regular version, not the waterproof, but I wouldn't put this on my bottom lashes because I'm sure it would transfer onto my face. I only say this because I went for a nap one day with it on and from my eyes being shut, it transferred a little bit on the outer corners of my under eye area. But, that's what waterproof versions are for so it's not that big of a concern.

I like the length i get with this mascara and how dark my lashes can get, but the clumping is driving me nuts! i have to get ready fast in the morning to get to work by 7 and i like to just swipe on my makeup and get a fresh look now i have to sit and work the clumps out. I have loved other mascaras from maybeline but this was not my favorite!

Overall I really like this mascara. The package is really cute and the name is too.the brush is a short fat one kinda like the cover girl lash blast one. That type of brush is not my favorite but this mascara really makes my lashes stand out.its really black and pretty volumeizeing with some pretty good length.one thing negative about it is that it. Seems a little hard to get off completely but I can over look that.I enjoy this mascara and would buy it again but its not my HG

i really like this product! by itself, it builds incredible volume. may get a little clumpy so be wary. i prefer to use it in conjunction with several other mascaras (cover girl lash blast, maybelline dream plush) and i get false looking eyelashes!

I purchased this in the waterproof version after buying CG Clump Crusher water resistant and it not holding up at all on my lower lashes. I've used every version of Maybelline's waterproof mascaras and I prefer the One by One version over any other. I was going to get that one but the store only had blackest black and I prefer brownish black for my waterproof as I generally only use it on the bottom lashes and I have very light hair. So Rocket was available in brownish black so I picked it up. I'm glad I did because it did a great job. It held up all day with no running or smudging. My eyes can water frequently because of allergies so I always use wp on lower lashes. I have used it on my upper lashes and while it's not quite as good as Jordana's Best Lash Extreme it still is pretty good. I may try the normal version next time I need mascara for my uppers but I'll probably stick with this for waterproof in the future.

I really like the waterproof version of this mascara for holding my curl but, it doesn't live up to the "volume" claims. It gives a natural long length and great for everyday wear. To remove easily; use Neutrogena Eye makeup remover in combination with Almay moisturizing pads, it'll come off without harsh tugging. :)

I saw all the commercials for this mascara on TV and wanted to buy it because I loved how the packaging looked and the idea of rocket volume, blah blah blah. [I am a young teenager who is just getting into makeup (this is my first mascara ever!!)] Well I finally got it at target for about 6 or 7 dollars, I believe. First of all, the formula is pretty wet, and it gets very clumpy, very fast. It probably clumps because the brush bristles are so short. AND IT'S SOOOOO HARD TO REMOVE!!! i feel like I lost some lashes trying to take it off with remover wipes, which eventually led up to my eyes burning like crazy from all that rubbing and effort!! It did give me fairly good volume, though. :)
Pros: decent volume, cute packaging
Cons: clumpy, dislike wet formula, sucky brush, hard to remove
thanks for reading!!

Would you buy this product again? hell yes I would! Let me start off by saying that I am a Maybelline fan first and foremost. I've tried several of their mascaras and when I seen the advertisement for this 1 on YouTube I got quite excited by the reviews. The mascara I was using previously was the colossal which I really like because I really like bold thick lashes. I seen reviews in videos about this message you're on YouTube and by what I've seen it looks like a mix between the colossal in the falsies. if the 2 had a child together this would be that mascara. I have the waterproof which is the blue tube with a light blue lettering on it it has a blue 1 and for me it took about a week for the formula to dry out seeing as Maybelline's mascaras are usually fairly wet when you first open them. Michael also was the wash a bowl combine which I have trouble with Mike lashes holding a crow with regular worship will mascara this message Cara being the waterproof really hold a curl and it definitely stays put all freaking day long. The only downside to this mascara is that it is really really really hard to wash off in the shower I have to wash my eyes a couple times in order to get the mascara to come off and even then it still doesnt all come off. It lengthens my lashes, it separates, darkens, I really love this mascara and I would buy over and over again

GUYS this mascara is amazinggggggg! It really holds the curl for hours and makes your lashes look like falsies. Usually with other mascaras ive tried, the formula weighs down my lashes and the curl doesn't last that long. This mascara has a wet formula but it does a spectacular job :) I only put on like 2 coats also. You can build up with this mascara, but don't overdo it or you'll end up with spidery lashes or clump them. The only reason I gave it 4 lippies is because it dries my lashes and the wand is not the most comfortable wand. I would definitely repurchase..just saying ;)

awesome mascara! the best i've come across so far! makes my lashes long and pretty! it gave me volume but not alot. it's still nice. my favorite! the regular formula did not smudge on me much just a little but it's ok. mega plush smudged horrible and was hard to wash off!!!!. i mixed it with my other favorite mascara l'oreal voluminous, it gave me a really nice full long look! i highly recommend this mascara! i am buying the waterproof version of too! this one is a keeper! <3
