The Rocket

I’ve never really been one to experiment with mascaras. Once I find something I like, I usually stick with it for a long time. That being said, I kept seeing commercials raving about this Maybelline “The Rocket” mascara and I finally decided to stretch out of my comfort zone and give it a try. In thinking about how to grade it, I decided to break it down into three categories: volume, length and overall.

Volume: B …For how much they were pumping up the Volum’Express aspect of this mascara, I was underwhelmed…but not 100% disappointed. I decided to give it a B for volume because I could see some difference in my lashes, but not what I was expecting given all the hype.

Length: A-…I was impressed with how much longer my lashes were when I put on a few coats using the wide-set wand. This gave me the perfect amount of length without being too dramatic or severe for day time wear.

Overall: B+… In being fair, I had to remind myself that this is a drag store mascara under $10.00, so of course I’m not going to get the effects of Diorshow or some other high end mascara. I think this would be great to combine with a high end grade mascara for optimal results. Where it lacks in volume, Diorshow or Bobbi Brown’s Extreme Party Mascara layered on with The Rocket could give you seriously enviable lashes.
