Hey guys! I recently used up The Rocket mascara from Maybelline so it's time to tell you my thoughts about it.
First of all, let's talk packaging. Classic Maybelline style: simple with a pop of color. The cute little fire in front of the name is fitting (Cause it's like a rocket taking off, get it?) and if you think about it, the tube shape is sort of like a rocket too (but it's a stretch). Overall, I like it!
The brush is neat because the bristles (is that what you call them?) are super short! But I guess that's how the lengthening is possible.
Before I even properly used the mascara, I had high expectations. First of all, I have only used Maybelline mascaras so I assumed I would love it. Secondly, my sister had used this on me for prom and I loved the results.
But here's where it gets tricky. It did everything it says on the tin: crazy long lashes that is waterproof. I loved it! My lashes are naturally pretty long but I love me a long lash and when my lashes reached my eyebrows I was in awe! And there was no smuding throughout the day. So what's the problem? It was nearly impossible to take off. I had used other waterproof formulas before and maybe I never cared much attention to how well they were able to take off, but with The Rocket, I was starting to get fed up over how well it stayed on. Halfway through using it, I had decided to swear off waterproof formulas for a bit. So that's a downer. And as the formula started to dry up, the long lashes effect wore off (but it was easier to take off).
So overall, I was disappointed. I don't see me repurchasing this in the future, which is a shame.
What are your thoughts about "The Rocket"?
