Maybelline's "The Rocket" Mascara Review

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"?

Monthly Empties | April 2018

This month I'm trying hard to just let things go, especially if I've had it for a long time. I feel like I went through a lot of skin care, which is typical, but I also feel like I went through my fair share of makeup bits as well! I always feel like I don't use things up, until it's the last week of the month and suddenly I'm running out of everything. Here's the things I've used up over the past month...

Lush Lip Scrub: I am not really a lip scrub person, only because I feel that lip balm is just fine. Plus, I'm super lazy/forgetful with extra steps, so I definitely neglected trying to use this lip scrub. Technically a lot is still there, but it's expired and solid as a rock at this point. I've never used a lip scrub before, but this was nice! It exfoliated and tasted great and that's all I really care about. I probably won't repurchase this as I won't use it enough in time.

#ProjectPan September 2017

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!

#ProjectPan October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…
