I spotted this Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara ($7.34) at Wal-Mart a couple weeks ago. I hadn’t heard or seen anything about it yet so I decided to give it a try myself. Since it’s so hot and humid out, I went with the waterproof version in the color very black.
I love the sleek black and red packaging! The container is shaped exactly like the Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara. The brush itself is pretty similar too but that’s where the similarities end.
Even though this mascara is not a fiber mascara, I’m really impressed by the length it gives my lashes. More than that, I absolutely adore the formula. The label calls it a “shiny patent finish” which I don’t really notice when looking at it on my lashes. But that might be why it glides on my lashes so easily.
This mascara goes on so smoothly that as first I didn’t think it was applying anything at all. It threw me off when it wasn’t grabbing and pulling my lashes as I ran it through. There’s no dryness, flaking or clumping whatsoever. Even after two coats, my lashes stay nicely separated and defined with no stray bits or blobs.
I’m in love with this one! My lashes stay nice and soft even with two coats, not hard and stiff. I get no transferring with it either. Even if I run my fingers over my lashes, nothing comes off on my hands. Yet it easily removes at night with simple makeup remover wipes.
