Review: Maybelline the Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara

Hey there everyone 🙂

This post will be about a mascara that has probably already been reviewed a couple times before. But for those who have not heard or seen anything on this mascara, then I hope this helps! 🙂

It’s one of the latest mascara’s from Maybelline! 
Maybelline the Rocket Volum’ Express.


 Maybelline has an excellent range of mascaras and I am definitely a fan of their mascara range! This one does not disappoint either 🙂


The packaging is a nice blue/purple colour, which makes it easy to spot within your make up collection. Quiet simliar packaging to all their other mascaras except that the brush applicators are different, ofcourse 🙂

With this one, it has a very strong and hard brush applicator. Feels like plastic or rubber. However, this mascara provides my lashes with a lot of volume without using an eye lash curler. I always forget to use my eye lash curler. Must still get used to that little habit!


This mascara does add both length and volume to my lashes which I love. The texture is also good and does not dry up too quickly which gives you some time to add more coats. I always add a bunch of coats to get a good amount of volume 😉

The only thing I don’t like about this plastic applicator is that sometimes I poke myself in the eye because of how hard the plastic applicator is. I think I prefer other bristle type applicators. Maybe that’s just me! That’s how it was like when I first started using it, I’m okay now with it. 

But this type of brush does have it’s advantages. For example, because of it’s strong durability, it makes it easy for the mascara to evenly apply to the lashes and get hold of the lashes nicely without clumping. It also grips the lashes well when applying. I use it everyday and it stays put on your lashes for the whole day.

Overall, I would say that I am happy with this mascara 🙂 
For those who were contemplating on whether or not to buy this mascara, then I hope this little review helped a little. If you have any questions then please feel free to drop a comment.
