  • "I have stick straight, short eyelashes. i have never found a mascara, that did a better job of keeping my lashes curled all day! with other mascaras, they fall flat within a few hours! i also have very oily skin & eyelids, and even most waterproof mascaras smear on me. this one has never smeared!! this mascara also doesn't clump much, and it lengthens nicely! i recommend this to anyone!!" in 420 reviews
  • "I've always had a hard time finding a mascara that not only added volume, wouldn't smudge, and most importantly, could hold a curl. I have long lashes, but they're totally straight! The Rocket is the only mascara that totally completely works for me! I can curl my lashes, add multiple coats, and it never weighs my lashes down and keeps them up and curled all day! It's amazing! " in 339 reviews
  • "I went on, what my girlfriends called, an "epic search" for the PERFECT waterproof mascara for myself. I have been blessed with extremely long lashes, long to the point where they get bent into my eye by my reading glasses. So I needed something that was not lengthening, water proof and held a curl really well. Well, after I went through about 6 different brands I finally stumbled about this one in our local drug store. And I haven't ever looked back since! I have cried through several weddings, read numerous books and curled my eye lashes daily, and it's held up through all this. It's the first one I recommend to any of my girlfriends who come asking! " in 71 reviews

  • "When they say waterproof what they mean is you'll use eye makeup remover, wash your face and eyes with makeup removing face wash in the shower, and still have to use eye makeup remover again when you get out of the shower." in 4 reviews

I love it is easy to use .I love the look i got after . I strongly reccomend it. Like a lot of girls out there, I'm always in search of the best mascara I can get my hands on, but I don't want to spend absurd amounts of money on it. I've tried all the brands; Covergirl, L'oreal, Rimmel, NYX, Elf, Mabelline, Almay, ect. This particular mascara has been my favorite for about a year now. The brush is rubber and thick with lots of bristles to get in between all the lashes, while the consistency is thick to help volumize while lengthening. My natural lashes are brown and turn blonde at the tips, they are also short, but do have a bit of a natural lifting curl to them. When I put this on my lashes they always get so much longer in length and add major volume! The only thing that I would change about this mascara is that the consistency is a bit on the wetter side. Therefore, taking it a bit longer for the coats to dry. However, when I apply multiple coats with any mascara my lashes begin to get clumpy and a bit flakey so the wetness of this formula always me to do a couple coats and does not clump. Hope this helps :)

This is amazing mascara! I’ve used it for years. It holds throughout the day, even through sweating and working out. I have an issue with mascara smudging and this one holds. It is a little hard to wash off with just regular cleanser, so extra steps have to be taken when removing makeup. It volumizes without clumping. This gets even better after it dries a little, rather than when you first open it. It holds curls very well and just doesn’t move. I definitely recommend this product.

Review for: Very Black more...
About me: I like mascaras that dont flake, that provide a lot of volume, separates and defines my lashes, holds a curl all day, and very very black. My lashes are about average in fullness and very straight, borderline curl-resistant. I usually prefer a dry mascara formulation to keep my lashes from being weighed down.

About this mascara: It doesn't flake off, it provides moderate volume, separates and defines lashes well, holds a curl moderately well, and is quite black (but not the blackest). I don't feel this adds a ton of length to my lashes, but that isn't a value to me. I re-apply this mascara halfway into my day to maintain the volume and color of my intial application. I find recurling my lashes after I apply my first coat ensures my curl is held all day. I find this product removes well with coconut oil or any oil based makeup remover.

This is perfect for an everyday casual makeup look, but perhaps not best suited for an evening/glam look. For additional drama, I recommend adding a coat of Maybelline's The Falsies (waterproof formula).


Pros: doesn't flake, itsn't clumpy, seperates and defines lashes, holds curl fairly well, pretty black.
Cons: not incredibly black and isn't buildable enough to take your look full glam.

I absolutely love this mascara. I've been using it for years now and even when I try something new I always come back to it. It does an outstanding job separating and lengthening my lashes. It also truly lives up to its waterproof name. I used to swim competitively and after 2 hours in the water it wouldn't budge. My only complaint is that because of this, its a little difficult to remove. But I'm really glad that it's super long wearing and actually waterproof.

Review for: Very Black more...
I just recently purchased this product based on some YouTube reviews that I saw. I normally don’t use waterproof mascara, but I saw reviews stating this waterproof mascara was very good for holding a curl after using an eyelash curler so I wanted to try it out on my super straight eye lashes. For me, I was actually surprised that it did hold a curl pretty well! I had to work quickly with the product because as it dried up on my lashes it started to become clumpy as I was applying a second coat. The brush on the wand is also not my favorite, it’s a little large which makes precision application a little bit harder. And lastly, waterproof mascara is a bit harder to remove from the lashes which is a given, but part of the reason I would give the 3 stars to this product. I probably will not repurchase but will keep trying to play with the one I have.

I use this mascara RELIGIOUSLY. I have very small, very straight, Asian eyelashes that cannot keep a curl to save their life. When I curl my lashes and apply this bad baby, they keep their curl throughout the whole day! The tube also lasts a pretty long time if you don't pack on the mascara too heavy. Taking it off is easy with just a little bit of baby oil. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a mascara to keep your lashes curled.

I like this mascara a lot, mostly because it is waterproof and I go swimming quite a lot and forget that I have mascara on. It gives your eyelashes a lot of volume and length, the only thing I don’t like about this is that, when taking it off it tends to leave redness around my eyes, but that is just me personally, so it might not have the same effect on you. But overall I recommend this for someone who likes a lot of not only length and volume but who likes it waterproof.

There is a reason why there is a difference from drug store mascara and a prestige one. This mascara is great to add volume but for some reason on flakes. I dont have that issue with other mascaras. It may be something with the forumula or the lasting of it. I'm not sure.

This mascara was my go-to mascara in high school. I don’t use it anymore (I really should try it again) but when I did use it, it gave my maximum volume and boldness on my eyelashes. Everyone would ask me if I have false eyelashes on! It’s a great mascara and I always love waterproof mascara because I have natural watery eyes so it doesn’t budge all day.

Someone said is not clumpy but doesn't that depend on how much you apply? i feel like all mascaras end up clumpy at one point or another..
