I was in Wal Mart last week when I spotted this new mascara from Maybelline. I wasn’t in need of a new mascara, but after seeing the adorable packaging I had to pick it up.
With this mascara Maybelline is looking to do for lashes what stilettos do for legs. That is to impart provocative length and black-patent shine. So does it do that? After a week of wearing this mascara daily here is my review.
- It doesn’t clump
- It builds decent length
- The wand is easy to use
- Cute packaging and it’s shaped like a stiletto!
- No patent finish
- Smells worse than Colossal
- Falls short in the volume and curl department
I give this mascara 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. It isn’t terrible, but it won’t become a “favorite” either. If you want a very natural look and only need to add length to your lashes then you’ll love it. I prefer an almost fake lash effect so I prefer CoverGirl Lash Blast and Maybelline Colossal because they give more volume and curl. I’ve heard from others that this product isn’t available until January and that only a few select “test” markets have it at the moment. So some of you may have to wait until January to be able to purchase it. I picked mine up for around $6.99. Have you tried Lash Stiletto yet? What were your thoughts?
