Now, the most explosive, beautiful lashes ever!

Supersonic Brush, and Fast Glide formula
Loads on big, sleek volume instantly

When it comes to mascaras, I love going drugstore for it and Maybelline and Rimmel have been two of my favorite brands for years now. I have been wanting to try The Rocket Volum Express mascara for sometime and one of my friends coming back from the UK was kind enough to get one for me. Read on to know my views on this amazing “monsoon” mascara!!

Maybelline Mascaras all come in a similar shaped body with pointed ends and a fat belly. The only difference is in the body color of these mascaras that helps you differentiate between them. The Rocket Volum Express Waterproof one has a shiny blue body with a lighter blue labeling on it. Looks nice !

I have very scanty and straight lashes and the one thing that really excites me in a mascara is the Volume part. The Rocket Volume Express Mascara is not only a volumising but also a lengthening mascara in my opinion. It gives me a smooth and clump free application and holds the curl of lashes far better than any any other mascara (yes! better than my favorite Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara too!!) It adds life to my non-existent lashes and makes my eyes look all big and open. You can layer it upto 3-4 layers without any clumping which I feel is great!!
The brush does all the trick here. With short and stubby bristles , which are just a bit too hard, and if you’re not careful, you might just poke your eye with it; the bristles coat each and every lash, from base to tip and beyond. It stays all day on my lashes and even in this monsoon season, the mascara doesn’t budge a bit until the end of the day.
As is with most waterproof mascaras, it is a bit tough to take it off, and use my The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter to remove it. The trick is to let the Cleansing Oil or butter sit on your lashes for about 30 seconds and then gently massage it so the mascara gets dissolved and comes off. I wear contact lenses and have never had any issues with this mascara

Overall, The Maybelline Rocket Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara is a great option for ladies looking for a good budget mascara. It adds volume and length without weighing down your lashes and holds your eyelash curls for all day. It survives rains, humidity and sweat and comes off only when you want to remove it. The only drawback is that it is not yet available in India!!

I recommend!!
