As you should all know by now, I am besotted with the Maybelline the Rocket Mascara and although I have tried hard to find a replacement, I have gotten nowhere! That said I do like other mascara’s from Maybelline, but not as much as my baby. I personally think they do mascara’s like no other high-street brand and I am always excited when they bring out a new edition, so I was extremely excited when I saw the Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara. Let’s see how it lives up to expectations.
- Now get bigger, wide-open eyes with 360 degrees of lash glam volume! The Upper Brush pushes lashes over the top while the lower Micro-Brush grabs every tiny bottom lash for a full circle effect.
- Oh wow the packaging. I am a fan of the Maybelline packaging mascara anyway because I always find the shape gorgeous and easy to use. At the end of the day, it’s a bloomin tube, so there isn’t a lot you can do to jazz it up. Yet that said Maybelline always seem to do the job! As you can see from the picture above, the colours are beautiful and completely eye catching. I really love the deep, blue-toned purple and it clashes with the black perfectly.
- So there are two brushes, one for the top and one for the bottom. The top brush is similar to the Rocket Express but is a tiny bit slimmer, but the bristles are flexible and nicely spaced out. I like that they are really narrow because it helps you get it in the corners and space the lashes out. The bottom brush is a very slender version of the top one.
- I am excited to give this a go!
Check out those lashes! The eye on the right has the new product and the one on the left has my old favourite on it.
In all honesty there seems to be little difference, and while I personally still prefer the Rocket Express, this is another excellent mascara from Maybelline. While the little brush for the lower lashes is definitely a good idea, but I also used it to get in to the inner and outer corners of my lashes. It definitely adds volume, and it definitely lengthens the lashes and helps define my eyes.
Verdict- Another fantastic mascara from Maybelline and I would definitely recommend this product if your looking for volume and length. If, like me, your eyes tend to get lost then mascara is crucial and this does the job perfectly. It is not my favourite Maybelline mascara, I still love the Rocket but this deserves credit and is worth a shot. 4/5.
