Maybelline The Rockets VS The Falsies

Back in the Summer when the rocket was first released I was quick to snap it up & it soon became one of my all time fave mascaras.

Last month my rocket was coming to an end & instead of repurchasing I remembered I had heard a lot of great things about maybelline the falsies, so I decided to pick one up to make a comparison & see if I had been missing out all this time.
So here's a short run down of each mascara;


The Rocket has a very thick round plastic applicator covered in tiny plastic bristles & comes to a flat end. The Rocket gives me slight volume & instant length without having to put much work into it. The applicator really does the job for you, two layers & you achieve the perfect set of long clump free lashes. One down side to the mascara is that the applicator comes to a flat end, meaning it doesn't reach those little outer lashes.

The Falsies has a C shaped curved applicator, with long bristles surrounding & covering the tip of the applicator, the wand has a slight ridge in it making the applicator bend & glide with each application.
The curved applicator really hugs the lashes and gets to those little outer lashes, but it hugs my lashes so much so that they end up easily looking clumpy. I've worked out that the best way to apply this mascara is lots of very light thin coats, giving me nice volume & average length.


For me the falsies is a very time consuming mascara you really have to reapply & reapply in very thin layers to avoid clumpy lashes, I like the volume it gives but for me there's not enough length & it's too time consuming giving my lashes an effect I'm just not overly impressed with.


The rocket is a quick & easy mascara that gives instant effect, I love the length it gives my lashes. For me the rocket is the outstanding winner.


Have you tried either of these mascaras?

  6. the Rocket looks fab I need to try it! I do like the falsies, I also thought it was a bit time consuming building it up. I much prefer comb applicators like the one on the Rocket too x

    1. Glad it's not just me who thinks the falsies is to time consuming to apply, the rocket is so much quicker to apply & gives such amazing looking lashes. xx

  7. Interesting comparison - I absolutely love the falsies and am less keen on the rocket. I just find that the falsies give amazing volume and shape with very little effort and it works great for me :o). Xx

  10. I'm such a massive fan of the Falsies mascara, I always apply my mascara in thin coats so that's probably why. I've not even tried the Rocket mascara yet, as I have soooooooo many in my stash but I definitely will! Your lashes are amazing babe, so long and curly... Not at all jealous hahah xxxx

  14. Ahh I love The Falsies that little bit more - although it transferred like crazy on me! I liked The Rocket but had issues with the brush haha...totally agree with you though that flat bit on the end is naaat your friend when it comes to reaching the outer lashes :/

    Your lashes look lie pure awesomeness in both mascaras regardless ahhh <3

  16. The Rocket looks amazing on you - like your lashes but amplified to the best possible version! Gorgeous! I've used both of these and found The Falsies to be good but clumpy, and The Rocket to be good but the only downside I found was it was really difficult to remove (reminded me of Benefit They're Real), even with waterproof eye makeup remover. Great comparison post and photos, Megan! :)
