I have another mascara review for you! Alongside blushes, mascaras are my favourite beauty products to test out and review for you. It's probably because I myself look like a totally different person with a little mascara on :)
The very much hyped Rocket was due to end up in my shopping bag eventually, no beauty blogger can skip this one!
The Rocket promises me "Massive volume in rocket time! Clump Free & Waterproof".
As you may know, my lashes are totally straight and in order to keep them curled, I need to use waterproof mascara. Unfortunately regular mascara does nothing for me.
One thick coat of The Rocket:
I have mixed feelings, I was expecting this to blow my mind, at least! The hype was so intense! But to me this does not qualify as a volumising mascara. My lashes do look quite nice in the pictures but something is missing. It does add some volume to the roots or my lashes but fails to do so throughout. It seems more lengthening than volumizing or defining. My lashes are not as defined and separated as I would like them to be, and I see some clumps. Clumps are a definite no no for me.
It does hold my lashes curled and it was easy to remove, I will say that :)
The brush is also quite big and therefore difficult to use and the tip collects excess product. Reminds me a lot of the False Lash Effect from Max Factor, which was not my cup of tea.
Overall I'm disappointed. My expectations were too high and because this mascara was only a good basic mascara, I can't make myself like it. But I'm thinking that this time the differences in the consistency between the regular and the waterproof version are bigger than usual, they must be :)
If you want length, this is for you, in my opinion. Volume and separation, try something else instead.
Thanks for reading!
