I think I have found my new favourite mascara. The Maybelline The Rocket mascara is the magical mascara that can hold my stubbornly straight lashes up all day in nice, voluminous curls. It works well and it's also incredibly affordable at about $6CAD, depending on where you buy it.
I didn't think I would like it at first because it had a rubbery brush instead of a bristle brush but I was so pleasantly surprised up the first application. The bristles coated my lashes so evenly and I was able to work the brush through over and over again without my lashes clumping together. The tapered end makes it easy for me to get into the inner and outer lashes.
The formula isn't too wet and isn't too dry; I find that it's perfect if you like to build up your lashes a bit without it looking too unnaturally coated. Once it dries, it won't budge and it holds a curl so surprisingly well. Even my stubbornly straight lashes stay curled throughout a 10 hour day.
I can't recommend this mascara enough.
If you haven't tried it already, you really should.
