Only recently have I discovered the magic of mascara. Early on, I was loyal to BodyShop’s Big and Curvy Mascara. Although it did a great job for volume, it didn’t quite deliver in when it came to elongating lashes.

By sheer coincidence, I stumbled upon Maybelline’s Colossal Volume Express Mascara. Since then, I have been hooked on to it. It stays from day to night, and makes the lashes look dark, plenty and long. Also, it comes off super easily and is light on pocket. Everything was fine and dandy, until I got the itch to experiment again…
Despite the itch, I stayed loyal to the Maybelline family and went on to try the Rocket Volume Express Mascara (from the same brand). This one promises instant volume and super easy application. In my case, I found it lacking. It isn’t as voluminous as it claims to be, and I wouldn’t prefer walking out with just this mascara on. On the upside, it comes out super clean, with no clumps what so ever.
Here’s what it looks like:
