Who doesn't like long thick voluminous lashes! I know I do! Mascara is what completes an eye makeup and brings it all together. Even if I'm doing a quick look I skip eye makeup but make sure I layer on my mascara. If you've been reading my posts you know I don't wear fake lashes (I have yet to try my hands on those) and so I'm always on a hunt for good mascaras that will provide me with both length and volume and also a formula that will not weigh my lashes down, specially near the inner corners. So yeah I always have high expectations and demands from a Mascara.
So I picked up Maybellline Volum'Express The Rocket Mascara without reading any reviews about it. I initially wanted the Colossal one but the word Volume and Rocket (Length = Rocket? No? Just me? Okay) caught my eye (I'm sure that's the most stupid thing you've read over the internet). So I picked this one up. When I first tried it on, I hated it! Yes! I hated how it made my lashes so thick and clumpy (not in a cute way at all). But how do I feel about it now? Read on to find out...

At The Back of The Pack.
As I mentioned, the first time I tried it I did not like it at all. It made my lashes look so so clumpy and deposited more product than needed so I didn't really use it until after a month and whoa!! I don't know if it's suppose to get better over time or the formula was too thin for my liking at the beginning but whatever it was I fell in love with this mascara for sure! Let's take a look at the packaging first.
The mascara tube is quite fat, enclosed in the typical Mascara-cardboard packaging. The tube itself can be bulky for some. Also one thing that bothers me about the tube, that might not bother others, is that it does not stand as it has a very small bottom.
The formula is a little thin at the beginning but with time it dries a little and gets to the perfect consistency for lengthy voluminous lashes! I personally do not like thin formula in a Mascara or maybe I put layers after layers when I tried it for the first time. Two coats of this mascara and it gives both length and volume to my lashes. I apply it directly to my lashes without curling them and the formula doesn't weigh my lashes down.
This particular Mascara has been given much love from me. The only Mascara that I gravitated towards for a whole month before I reminded myself I have got to try and use up the others in my stash.
The wand is fat which coats each lash from bottom to top perfectly. Also I love it to coat my lower lashes. Sometimes I'll use a different Mascara for my upper lashes and grab this one for my lower lashes.
Here's how two coats of Maybelline Volum'Express The Rocket Mascara looks applied to my Lashes.

You can see how it hasn't weighed down my lashes at the inner corner and how long it has made the lower lashes. I super love it!!!
For a super quick look I warm up my crease with Morphe Brushes Individual Eyeshadow in Caramelized (see it swatched here), layer two coats of this Mascara on my upper and lower lashes, apply a nude pencil in my water-line, rosy pink cheeks and my favorite Maybelline Lipstick Coffee Craze (reviewed and swatched here).
Will I repurchase it again? Well, I already have :D as a back up! I do not wanna run out of it!!
This mascara is definitely a 5 on 5 from me!
I got it from Naheed Supermarket. It's available on almost all the Maybelline counters and kiosks. You can also order it online from www.just4girls.pk and www.reforma.pk for Rs. 850.
