If you’re up to date with my YouTube channel, you will know that I’ve been having a serious love affair with a drugstore mascara – who’da thunk it?! Until now I was a slave to higher end mascara offerings such as Clinique’s High Impact, Benefit’s Rollerlash and Lancome’s Hypnose. 

I picked up Maybelline’s The Rocket mascara on a whim as part of a deal in Boots. It’s love my fluttering friends. This lengthens, volumises and holds a curl all day, all for a sweet £7.99. I’m already on my second and have a back up to hand, that’s how serious this has got.

PS. Does the weirdly hypnotic gif make anyone else feel a bit queasy or have I just eaten too much porridge?!

What is your favourite drugstore mascara?

    I've been using Maybelline the falsies lately but my all time favourite has to be L'oreal Miss Manga :)Rosy | Sparkles of Light Blog

    I completely agree with you on this! I have used it for over a year now, religiously. My friend introduced me to this, and I haven't felt the need to they a new mascara since.:D- – Kendall Jenner Inspired Make-up Look
