The Holy Grails #3: Maybelline The Rocket (Waterproof) Mascara

I don't think i've ever talked about JUST a mascara on the blog before, but if you are familiar with my make up looks and the little round up of products I show at the end, you'll see I very often use Maybelline's The Rocket. First introduced to this product by Ingrid AKA Miss Glamorazzi, she claimed this mascara made her extremely straight almost downward turned lashes amazing. She sold me right there and then, as I suffer with almost the same thing.





My lashes are very straight and without curling and a good mascara, it almost looks like I have none. I have never really found the mascara for me, I went through countless high street ones before trying the likes of Dior and Lancome. I had almost given up before I gave this a try and what a difference it has made. Instead of boring you all with the details, I'll show you it in action.



As you can see, a bit of curling and one coat of The Rocket and I look bright eyed and instantly alive again. I find I can only ever use waterproof versions of mascaras as they 1) hold a curl better which again, my lashes need being very very straight and 2) I always get panda eyes and waterproof mascaras seem to transfer less. The Rocket has been repurchased countless times for me and no doubt will continue to be purchased again and again. Not only is the product incredibly price friendly (and easily picked up in the Boots 3 for 2 deals) but it really does hold a curl, lengthen and make me look like I actually HAVE lashes which really is a huge feat in itself. 

Are you enjoying my Holy Grails series? What is your Holy Grail mascara?

  4. I need to pick this up! I have the same problem, stick straight, downward pointing lashes. My holy grail mascara is Maybelline's One by One VolumExpress or Colossal VolumExpress both in waterproof formulations. I try to stay away from non-waterproof formulas for the one reason - they don't work, not on me anyway.

    1. I only like the waterproof as I find it holds a curl much better and doesn't give me panda eyes :)

  9. BOUGHT THIS TODAY. I had the regular one, not the waterproof one!! x
    maybe the waterproof one won't give me mascara smudges under the eyebrows!
