  • "Very affordable mascara for that quick volume on the go look! I have never had a problem with this mascara. It's my every day girl! Very smooth applying applicator. " in 1280 reviews
  • "I have searched for a drugstore brand mascara that compared to other high end brands. THIS IS IT! My number one pet peeve concerning mascara is flaking. I hate when my mascara ends up underneath my eyes by lunchtime. This mascara stays on all day, doesn't flake, but washes off easily unlike waterproof mascaras. I am already on my second tube!" in 366 reviews
  • "This product leaves amazing volume on my eyelashes and it also lengthens them.The wand bristles really help separate my eyelashes. I put two coats and I'm ready to go. Favorite mascara of mine so far!" in 320 reviews
  • "This mascara literally does it all. It adds volume, adds length and separates your lashes just enough. It doesn't make your lashes crunchy, or too separated so it looks like you have six super long lashes. It also doesn't clump, which is a major pro since now it looks great on your top and bottom lashed." in 216 reviews
  • "It made my eyelashes clump together, not in a pretty way but rather excessively, and it made my eyelashes look very short." in 62 reviews

I've only used 2 mascaras's in my life. The ever-so-popular #Maybelline Great Lash and the #Clinique Waterproof High Impact Mascara. I was inspired to try something new by a make up artist I met at #Blushington. I chose the Maybelline Rocket Volum Express from my local Walgreens. Sadly, I was not impressed. The brush is too fat for my liking. It has plastic bristles, which I'm not use to. It was hard to reach the corners of my upper and bottom lashes with this wand. The main thing I did not like about the product was how difficult it was to get off! I don't like having to scrub my eyes with multiple products until my skin turns red! I used good make up remover products too. (#Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash and the #Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water). I went back and bought the Great Lash mascara and will be throwing the Rocket Express in the trash.

I use the waterproof version of this product, and let me tell you, it's amazing. I have short, sparse lashes that point down. I only use waterproof formulas because they hold the curls in my lashes without weighing them down. This is the ONLY drug store mascara I use now. I've been using this mascara since sophomore year of high school and I'm 22 years old now. If you're Asian or have short little eye lashes like mine, I highly reccommend this mascara. Or at least try waterproof formulas. It's a bit of a pain to take off at night, but if you have a good make up remover, it shouldn't be an issue! I use the Neutrogena makeup remover, or the Up & Up Target brand, and they both work just as well.

This is my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE mascara. It was the very first mascara I ever used, and I've tried many products since then that none compare to. I bought this at Walmart and it comes in a very viberant packaging. (sorta reminds me of a packaging for a teenager haha but still love it) Its inexpensive and comes in different colors, along with the option to be waterproof. I always get it waterproof and it last SO long. It makes my eyelashes very thick and long and almost look like false eyelashes.  I've recommended this product ot several friends and they all have also tried and love it. Honestly, I don't know any down sides to it.

Having a mascara that's easy to wash off at the end of the day makes my skin care routine just that much easier! Instead of applying a ton of make up remover or rubbing my eyes like crazy with a cloth which can cause for wrinkles, it comes off easily! Not to mention I love how my lashes look when using this mascara! It not only adds volume and makes them appear fuller, but it also leaves them looking longer than they really are!

Review for: Very Black, Blackest Black more...
For a while, this used to be my favorite drugstore brand mascara. However, in recent years I have found that this product simply isn’t as great as it used to be. While the packaging is great, I think that this brand mascara clumps a lot faster than other competing brands. It produces a nice result for several wears, but beyond that, I feel like it loses its effectiveness. Even though the price of this product is generally lower than other brands I purchase, I do not think I will continue spending money on this product. In my opinion, I’d rather spend a bit more on a higher quality product that produces better and more consistent results.

When I first got this I liked it. It isn’t bad I just don’t get it no more I like this other drug store mascara called L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara I just feel like this one works better but a long time ago I used to get Maybelline mascara I guess I just got tired of it . But it works good there’s nothing wrong with it I just like L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara better out of the drug store mascara only because it’s kinda like the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Washable Mascara is just kinda like it because the mascara brushes are kinda similar I usually buy it when I’m going on a budget and I also get the Maybelline kind only when some stores don’t have the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara.

Review for: Very Black more...
I’ve been using this mascara for the longest time! & I definitely recommend it. I get the waterproof one and the times that I’ve cried with this mascara on, it never gets clumpy or runny. I’ve always tired other mascaras but I always find myself going back to this one. I love how it leaves my eyelashes looking long & full! Another plus is that my eyes don’t sting with this mascara; I wear contacts so I always have to be careful what kind of makeup I buy and use around my eyes.

This is my Best Friends favorite mascara and she always raved about it so I decided to give it a try. I love how long and full it leaves my lashes and it stays all day without smudging. I also think it is a good price and worth the money, The only problem i have with it is that it makes my eyes a bit itchy but I have that problem with a lot of my mascaras because I have very sensitive eyes. I also feel that towards the end of the day it can start to get a bit heavy feeling on my eyes.

I’ve been using this product since middle school and now I’m about to be 19 lol. I’m pretty sure it used to be called Rocket blast back then. Anyways It’s affordable and works way better than a lot of high end mascaras. It makes your eyelashes long without making them look spidery or clumpy. The volume and length it gives your lashes is amazing for such a cheap price. I’ll probably be using this product until the day I can’t wear makeup anymore.

My favorite mascara. I've been using it since I started wearing makeuo. I've tried plenty of other drugstore mascara, but I always go back to this one! You can get them at target for 5.99 or I've got them at ulta when they have their $3.50 off $15 coupon plus buy one get one 50% off so I can normally get 3 tubes for about $16 and some change which is so worth it to me. It doesn't flake on me and it definitely doesn't clump my eyelashes together.
