Today I'm going to review the Maybelline The Rocket mascara.
I got the version that isn't waterproof in the shade Very Black or Blackest Black, whatever.
Maybelline Mascara

I've been using this mascara for a little over a week now, so I feel like I can tell you my thoughts on it.

First of all, it retails for around $7, which is great.

I love the packaging. The blue and hot pink are eye catching and cute.
The tube is fairly large, but I can deal with that.

The brush is large and has plastic bristles. They get smaller as they go up the brush which, to me, is helping give a more fanned out appearance to the lashes.

One coat of this mascara gives some length and volume and is a very nice look, especially for day time. 
Two coats gives more volume and a more dramatic look, but it's harder to work with and it will start clumping.

Here are pictures with one coat:


The formula is very black, so it looks really nice. 
It's a pretty wet mascara and it does take a little extra time to dry.

I didn't have issues with smudging, unless I rubbed my eyes, but I did have a little bit of flakes. It wasn't a lot, and it wasn't a big deal.

So, how do I like this mascara?

It's okay. It's no holy grail. It doesn't really compare to my Benefit They're Real or the L'oreal Carbon Black mascara, which I miss but I wanted to try something new.

I'll definitely use this one up, but I doubt I'll repurchase it unless it gets better as it ages.

Thanks for reading!
