Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket™ Washable MascaraIf I had to choose only 5 products to put on my face, mascara would be right at the top. Even when I’m not doing anything else, I will always curl my lashes and apply mascara because I love how it makes my eyes look. Picking a mascara can be pretty overwhelming, because there are just so many – and a new one seems to come out every week. So to help just a little, today I’m reviewing Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Rocket™ Washable Mascara.

To start, I love that the wand isn’t inside the mascara when you first purchase it because it’s nice to see what it looks like before being covered in mascara. I found the “patented Supersonic Brush with micro bristles” picked quite a bit of product. The first time I applied it I didn’t wipe any off and my lashes clumped rather quickly. The second time I used it I wiped some off on the rim and applied the first coat with light, quick strokes and it went on a lot easier. I didn’t find that it lengthened my lashes but it did make them a bit thicker while leaving them still quite natural looking. It didn’t flake or smudge during the day (or overnight when I forgot one day to remove it… tsk tsk), and it came of very easily with my Julep Bare Face Cleansing Oil. It won’t replace my favorite Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara but at less than half the price (retails around $9.50) I didn’t expect it to.

  1. First thing, your eye makeup looks fab… as usual! 🙂 Second, I have that mascara and I’m not the biggest fan of it. I only use it on my bottom lashes (weird I know), but it doesn’t give me the volume that I was expecting on the top lashes! lol.

  2. i’m going to have to try out the smashbox one. right now my fave is the lancome one.. and the diorshow is a close second.. but i also haven’t a lot of the others. 🙂

  3. I have a love/hate relationship with mascara. I love love it but part of my problem is that no matter what ‘type’ it is, it smears under my eyes. i don’t even put it on my lower lashes, even though i wish i could! i’ve tried water/tear proof… doesn’t matter. any suggestions?? =)

    1. Smearing throughout the day? You could try putting just a bit of translucent powder under your eyes (brush away the excess) – and reapply the powder throughout the day if needed.

    1. I use Julep Bare Face cleansing oil and it comes off no problem – but I have read reviews where people had problems removing it with makeup wipes. Thank you Jessica 🙂
