Let's be real now. Asians are not known for having the world's best lashes. However, I don't think of this as a curse, but instead think of it as a challenge, a challenge to find a mascara that gives definition, doesn't clump, and holds a curl. Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof Mascara has granted my wishes.
Packaging | This bright blue tube of mascara that resembles a rocket feels great in the hands and even better on the lashes. The pink lettering on the outside has slightly faded, but that's the very least of my concerns. I love how the wand is fairly large and has short bristles throughout which makes for an even application.
Application | I use between one to two coats which results in fully defined and voluminzed lashes. Though it does not clump, a few lashes may stick together. This can be easily solved by gently combing them through with a clean wand. I also enjoy pairing this mascara with my Maybelline Illegal Legnths Mascara as the The Rocket does not do anything to lengthen my lashes. I have a pretty difficult time keeping my lashes curled as they naturally point straight forward, but at least the waterproof formula (I have not tried the regular formula) does a great job at holding a curl for a good 8+ hours.
Formula | I would not categorize The Rocket as neither dry or wet, but it's a nice in between. I've kept it longer than I should, but it has still not dried out. I purchased this mascara in "Blackest Black", and it sure is very black! (Though I honestly can't tell a difference between the different shades of black for mascaras. Am I the only one?)
Price | At $7.95, this is an extremely affordable mascara that will surely not disappoint.
