Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara is a bit interesting. It lengthens very well—in fact I may have gotten more length from this one than from any other mascara. It also defines fairly well. But it does so in a way that made my lashes look thicker at the base and a bit spindly at the top. That was an interesting and rather dramatic look that I wasn’t personally crazy about, but I could see some people really liking it.
How the mascara achieves the different look, I don’t know. The brush is quite long, and it has a very tapered appearance, so perhaps that has something to do with it. It also seems like a thinner formulation than many mascaras. Aside from the interesting look from Lash Stiletto, the mascara wore well. I had no issues with flaking, and it lasted all day when I tested it. I have seen a review (at drugstore.com linked above) mentioning an odor. I never noticed any issues along those lines.
I’m curious what others who have tried this one think of it! Also, I was sent an extra one or two packages of Maybelline Lash Stiletto, so watch here next Monday for a giveaway of those!
