Maybelline The Rocket Mascara Review
Maybeline Claims: Explosive Volume in Rocket Time!
8X Bigger. Smoother. Even. 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. Our fast-glide formula keeps lashes smooth. Zero clumps!
Apply the Brush against the lashes and sweep from root to tip until a clean, voluminous look is achieved. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily with soap and water or with Eye Makeup Remover.
Packaging: The bright blue and pink is cute and fun. It has a similar brush to Cover Girl’s Lash Blast, I like the brush, it picks up the right amount of product and the short brittles makes coating your lashes super easy. The narrower end makes it easier to get to your inner corner lashes allowing you to achieve a full lash effect.
Thoughts: I personally don’t think that this mascara is as wet as other Maybelline mascaras are when you first open them. It’s still a wet formula, but it’s a little easier to work with than other Maybelline mascaras. Even though this mascara is volumizing, your lashes don’t clump and they stay separated. It also adds a decent amount of length.
I also love how long this keeps the curl on my lashes, my eyes feel a lot more open and awake, and the formula is light. The formula dries quite quickly so you have add another layer quickly. As for its waterproof claim, I can come out of the shower having rubbed my eyes in the water and it will still on my lashes without a single smudge under my eyes.
Verdict: If you’re looking for a new mascara try out Maybelline The Rocket Mascara I totally recommend this product. Once I knew how to use it, I haven’t looked back.
Skip the Spa: Have a Facial at Home
Pick up a facemask to addresses you skin needs. set aside thirty minutes for your DIY facial: Start with a cleanser, apply the mask and leave it on for 20 minutes and finish with a hydrating lotion. (Do not squeeze breakouts you can make them worse and even cause scarring.)
Beauty Tip: Satin Pillowcases
Switch your pillowcase for a satin pillowcase. Unlike cotton, satin doesn’t absorb moisture so your hair and skin will remain hydrated. Also, the smooth silky texture of a satin pillowcase will reduce hair breakage and matting. Some experts say that sleeping on a satin pillowcase will reduce the possibility of wrinkles.
So switched out your cotton cases and have sweet dreams on a silky pillow.
Where to Buy Satin Pillowcases: Sally’s Beauty Supply, Bed Bath and Beyond or try online.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara Review
I bought this mascara quite a while ago, but I wanted to use it a few times first before I review it.
Maybelline Claims “Patented spoon brush and Kera-fiber formula instantly build 8x more volume without clumping to complete the false lash look”.
The wand has a slight curve to help curl your lashes upwards. The mascara formula is silky and glides on easily and color pay off is great. I was really excited for this mascara; however, I don’t think it’s as good as the other Maybelline mascaras.
The formula dries quickly which made building lash volume a problem for me. Applying wet mascara on dried mascara equals a mess. The solution is to work quickly to get as many coats as possible on because the quick drying formula will create a clumpy mess. I don’t think I would call the end result a false lash look to be honest. It creates nice length but lashes don’t look as full or have the volume I would like. The end result was just not dramatic as Maybelline advertise.
I wasn’t impressed I wouldn’t necessary recommend to others. I do think Maybelline makes pretty good mascaras in comparison to the other brands however the falsies is not one of them for me.
