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.

the brush is terrible. all the adverts for it mention 'no clumps' which is complete crap because the bristles are so short loads of product is applied to the lashes and you are unable to comb it out.

This is a pretty good mascara, but nothing amazing. It is a bit wet when first used, but gets a better consistency as you use it. The packaging was pretty, and the brush is a tad hard, but still effective. It did give length and volume, but did become a bit clumpy after a few coats (the wand applies lots of product). For the bottom lashes, I would recommend applying to your top ones first, and without dipping again, apply to the bottom. One thing that I will add is that it is indeed, very hard to get off. I slept with it once (very bad, I know) and it was pretty much intact, which is an example of long lasting. Overall, not bad, but not perfect.

Mascara is so tough to review as whether or not we like a particular one is so individual. This one performed well and I liked the brush and formula and it did thicken and lengthen but IT WOULD NOT COME OFF! I usually run warm water over my fingertips and work my lashes between them to loosen and remove most of my mascara and then follow up with coconut oil or a makeup remover but seriously guys, this mascara took FOREVER to come off! I would not repurchase this as ease of removal is important to me, I don't want to have to work that hard and risk losing lashes for any mascara when there are so many of them.

This mascara is nice if you want huge lashes but if you're more into the natural look, I wouldn't recommend this. My eyelashes are already really long and full but you cant notice because they are blond. I got this hoping it would separate my lashes but it is pretty clumpy. Not extremely but it is. I would buy this again only if I needed a mascara that I would want to make it look like im wearing fake eyelashes or a dramatic eye.
