Review: Maybelline Volum Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara

31 Mar
After the disaster that was the Cover Girl mascara, I decided I would give a different brand a try so I picked up Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Rocket Mascara (the waterproof version).
The Claims: 

Now, the most explosive, beautiful lashes ever! Volum’ Express The Rocket Mascara’s patented Supersonic Brush with micro bristles loads on big, sleek volume instantly. Why you’ll love it:
  • Explosive Volume in Rocket Time!
  • 8X Bigger. Smoother. Even.
  • Our fast-glide formula keeps lashes smooth.
  • Zero clumps!

My impression:

 

  • I like that product gets scraped off the brush as you pull it out of the tube – that way you don’t end up with too much product and clumpy, goopy lashes.
  • It didn’t clump and it separated my lashes
  • It didn’t flake (much…sometimes at the end of the day there would be  a bit under my eyes but not much)
  • It IS waterproof – unlike some mascaras that claim to be waterproof but aren’t

 

I wouldn’t say it gave my lashes lots of volume – but I usually only use one or two coats of mascara. It’s a good mascara but nothing special and not the best I’ve ever used.
My verdict: Its worth giving a try but don’t expect miracles.
