Last week, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and I bought the Maybelline Volum’ Express Rocket Mascara. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to buy it in the first place, because I have been missing out terribly.
First off, the packaging is the absolute cutest thing ever. Pink and blue? Geniusness! The tube , if you haven’t seen it, is somewhat shaped like an actual rocket. On the packaging it is advertised as a “clump-free explosion of volume that, with the help of this new brush, gets up to 8x more volume in rocket time.” I definitely think that the description given on the packaging is accurate to the results that I received. The formula is not too thick and definitely not runny. I can even attest to the fact that it took me less time to get the results I wanted. With only one or two coats of this, it is comparable to almost three coats of other mascaras that I’ve tried. I immediately saw the volume and length that I have been hearing so much about. Another thing that I have been experiencing with other voluminous-effect-promising mascaras, is that they are super clumpy. That is the main reason I didn’t put mascara on my bottom lashes, but with this one, I definitely can. Spidery lashes aren’t my thing, but to each his own. I’d much rather have long and voluminous ones. This is only my first impression of this mascara and I will definitely be back in a few to update you lovelies on my thoughts.
