First Impression: Maybelline New York The Rocket Mascara

As you guys can tell, I have bought The Rocket Mascara. I wanted to wait until my day off to do a first impression of this. I bought this mascara for $7.00 at Target. It contains .3 FL OZ. of product.

The packaging is pretty much the same for every Maybelline mascara, except they wanted to showcase the brush in this one, which they call Supersonic. You would expect that this one would vibrate, but it doesn't. Lame-o.

This is what the bottle looks like before you remove the top. It's a bluish-purple with a pink ring at the top. The Rocket is printed on there in pink, along with the company name and the collection it comes from. Maybelline does test on animals, so be careful.

 Now onto the "Supersonic" brush. It's pink in the center encased with clear plastic bristles that are small in the middle and bigger on the sides. The bristles get smaller as they go up and it's flat at the top. I do like the look of the brush. It's very pretty.

This is what the brush looks like once it's dipped into the product. It looks huge, but it's really not. The handle is a bit difficult to hold onto, so it'll take some practice.

Now here's the top and bottom together. I love how the pink ring stands out against the bluish-purple. It just looks so pretty.



I don't see a huge improvement, but it does make my lashes look longer and better. It doesn't seem to clump and it just looks good. I will try this out some more.
