Review: Maybelline - Rocket Volume Express Mascara & V-Day LOTD

 Hello World!!!

Today's post is a review of Maybelline's - The Rocket Volume Express Mascara.
I personally Have very tiny, almost invisible eyelashes, so I'm always on the lookout for a good mascara because I don't really like false lashes.

I asked around and searched all over for a good mascara, and then I found out about The Rocket - Via LoveforLacquer and a few others.

Here's what the pack looked like.
I Liked the feel of the brush.

Here's the Before and After.
What do you think?

 I am a very realistic person you see, I didn't expect the mascara to give me EXTRA Long lashes that would rival falsies, But I must say, I am VERY IMPRESSED!
As you can see, the mascara helped my tinsy weeny eyelashes. The result made me soo happy because I could ACTUALLY see my eye lashes with the use of this mascara.  I didn't use a lash curler, or anything else aside from the mascara. It elongates and curves my lashes all on its own.

I am also going to be showing you my Valentine's day make up and Outfit, so Here we Go!!!
A Top View of my FOTD. Check out my eye lashes y'all.. I have actually never seen them this way before.

Also, A look at the top of the dress I wore for my outing with the Boyfriend. I Love the ruffled look of the dress so much.
Note: Val's day is also the Boyfriend and I's Anniversary!!! :-D

And here's my complete Look.

I Hope you had a lovely Valentine's day. 

And if You're looking to try out a new mascara, I fully recommend you give The Rocket Mascara a try. 
Till later, God Bless. 


  1. You are so adorable :) I just bought this mascara today, I'm glad you gave it the thumbs up!

  2. Mascara looks awesome! The whole outfit is amazing! You look so pretty! I know the feeling of searching forever for good mascara. It took me forever to find something that won't clump or flake off.

  3. You look darling!! Love the shoes, the dress and of course the makeup! Hope you had a great day!

  4. You are so pretty, Lizzy! This mascara def looks worth a try. I was in LOVE with Prescriptives False Eyelashes and had that stuff stockpiled when the company went out of business and I've yet to find something as good. I've been using L'Oreal Voluptuous for a few years and it's a reasonable facsimile, but I admit to always being on the lookout. Great outfit, too, as always :) Adorable ink flats and I love the patterned tights. And happy anni :) :) :)
