Friday Favorite – Maybelline Volum’ Express THE ROCKET Mascara

Hi Guys! Today’s favorite is a mascara that I have been using for about 6 months straight. This mascara is THE ROCKET by Maybelline.


This mascara comes in a pretty blue and pink tube, and has a very big plastic bristle brush.


I always use non-waterproof versions of mascara, I don’t usually have a problem with smudging, so I never buy waterproof…but there is a waterproof version for those of you who want to try it. I decided to try this mascara because I thought it was pretty, and because I love Maybelline mascaras. I just love mascaras with huge brushes. I have tried a lot of mascaras with small brushes, and I can never seem to get them to work for me. It seems like the mascaras with the big brushes always give me more volume and length.

I am on my third tube of this mascara, and I hope they never stop making it! It is very black, and you only need a couple of swipes for it to give you amazing volume! This mascara never smudges or flakes on me, and it stays in place all day. I would recommend curling your eyelashes prior to applying this, just like you should with all mascaras.

This mascara is very similar to Covergirl’s Lash Blast, Lash Blast Volume, and Clump Crusher mascaras. Those are also good mascaras, but not as good as THE ROCKET. The reason I like this mascara so much is because my lashes stay curled all day with this! Even after wearing it for 8 hours, it looks like I have just applied it.





There is only one con to this mascara. It is somewhat difficult to remove. I have never had to work this hard to get a non-waterproof mascara off! Most mascaras will just come off with my facial cleanser, but not this one, I have to use makeup remover to get it off. What I do, is I take a cotton pad and my Sephora Cleanse Off Oil, and pump it onto the pad, and then hold the pad on my closed eye for a couple of seconds, and then gently wipe it away. This mascara is very fibrous, so you will see all of the little fibers coming off.

All in all, this is a great mascara, and you should check it out if you are in the market for a new one. It’s around $5, and is available at any drugstore!

AND…Always remember to toss your mascara after 3 months!

Thanks for reading; have a great weekend! 🙂
