Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara: Product Review

PRICE: $ 5.94 
(approx. Php 243)
RATING: 9 / 10




This is my First EVER Non-Lipstick Cosmetics Review! Let's do this! Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara is the latest Eyelash product of the brand. I I have always been a Clinique Mascara user since I started using make-up because they gave me the volume that I needed with my already long eyelashes. This Maybelline mascara changed my view about drugstore brands. I decided to get this latest product to see for myself if Maybelline is really a something when it comes to mascaras.



So here's my first impression about the product:

Likes:
- I love the packaging and name. I have to give it to their marketing team for the witty idea of having it named after a "rocket launch" and coloring it with blue and pink which is really an eye catcher.

- The rubber brush is a great idea! Instead of having the usual bristles for the brush, having the rubber one doesn't absorb the liquid.
- They're acclaiming the "fast-glide" formula which upon application, doesn't disappoint.
- It glides easily and it doesn't only add volume but additional length as well.


Dislikes:
- It doesn't dry up quickly. I'm into the habit of using an eyelash curler after applying my mascara and it takes a lot of time to dry causing it to stick to the curler. 

- Not yet available here in the Philippines. So I don't know how to get another tube after I ran out. Also, they sell Maybelline mascaras here in a higher price.

    1. Hi Pauline, I believe it's already available here! They just released it late last year. :)
