Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara

Every so often a new product will come out and the packaging will lull me in and I will purchase expecting not to be wowed. I have lost count with the amount of Maybelline mascara launches that I have been sucked into, the names get me, the colours of the tubes get me, and the promises on the outer packaging get me too. I held off dipping into my pocket for Maybelline's newest creation, 'The Rocket' as I will affectionately be referring it too. The combination of the pretty hot pink lettering combined with with the beautiful blue shade of the tube which reminds me of Essie's Aruba Blue was, quite simply, crying out to me and yesterday I caved. Well done Maybelline, you've done it again.

Maybelline say: 'IT'S ROCKET SCIENCE! Our exclusive Jet Glide brush with Flexi-fine bristles loads on big bang volume so fast, there is no time for clumps! Our smooth formula keeps lashes looking sleek and even'. 

I purchased mine in Boots on introductory offer for £5.99 and they say: 'Clump free volume gets reinvented with our exclusive elastomer brush - the Jet-Glide. Lashes have up to 8 x more volume. The patented Jet-Glide Brush propels smooth volume evenly all the way up every lash in a flash for explosive volume.' Rocket science indeed...let's blast off...

First of all I absolutely love mascara wands with plastic bristles, they make my lashes so much more alive, in terms of volume, curl and lift. I only own one mascara with more natural bristles, Revlon's Grow Luscious, but always feel that I have to use another mascara on top of it to separate my lashes due to clumping. Maybelline's Rocket did not make my lashes clump once, incredibly true to the claim.

I am blessed with fairly long lashes naturally. I have never had extensions, used an extension fibre lash type of product, nor do I wear false lashes on a daily basis like I have been asked before! My lashes are quite spidery though, as you can tell from the photo on the left there, and this is not down to the mascara, it's just something I have to deal with!

Maybelline's Rocket still managed to add incredible length to my spidery lashes, blackening them perfectly and after a whole day of wear they look just as they did when I applied my mascara this morning. They retained a lovely lift and curl and I was also surprised at how fuss free the application was. Normally I end up with little clumps of mascara falling under my eyes but there was none of that with The Rocket. Win!

Could I possibly love this new mascara any more? I'm so glad I picked it up. If anything it's a little akin to my beloved Benefit They're Real, only without the steep price tag, but that's just my opinion. It won't replace my love for They're Real, but it comes in a very, very close second.

Have you tried The Rocket yet?
