I HATE THIS MASCARA. That being said, you are probably wondering why I gave it 5 stars. Well here's the thing. I recommend that if you are curious in buying this mascara, you should buy it and try it out. I did that a few years back and ending up hating it. It clumped, it was terrible for volume. HOWEVER** The brush that it comes with is phenomenal! I have not seen another brush work wonders like this little, red plastic one. I use it as an eyebrow come before and after I apply eyebrow powder, and the powder STAYS in place. I have ONLY ever experienced that with this brush. I also use it as an eye lash brush before and AFTER mascara. I first curl my lashes and then use my HG mascara L'oreal telescopic. Once it dries, I use this Stiletto brush which gives my eye lashes phenomenal definition as well as even more length? (somehow I don't know) So if you are curious about this mascara, please buy it. If you hate it, throw it out, clean the brush, and keep it . It can be used over and over again with make-up remover :)
I really like this mascara. Its buildable, very black and easy to apply even a month after purchase. Sure, its not the best of the bunch; but for drugstore I think its a pretty good value.
The smell is horrible. Even an hour after application I can still smell my mascara and my eyes are a little irritated. Bad tube?
The formula is thin which meant clumps were minimal ... for now (until the tube gets more air time from use).
But the smell ...
With a name like "stiletto" you would think that this mascara would make your lashes super long like its sky-high heeled namesake. Well, it made my lashes long ... sort of. Better than going natural I suppose, but disappointing in the length department.
Marcelle Lash Extreme is far better for me for length.
Givenchy Noir 3-in-1 even better still (based on a tester from Sepora).
And in case I didn't mention it before ... there's that horrid smell.
Guess it's not hard to figure out that I won't be repurchasing this mascara.
Im glad that this formula works for me. The brush is wonderful. It lengthens and separates my lashes. I wear concealer and have oily lids and this stuff doesn't smudge on me or flake unless I layer too much on. I have a habit of layering x20 bc I love mascara lol. It dries hard but overall I like this product.
I like lash stiletto! It's not dry or flakey and stays put all day long-no raccoon eyes :) The formula and thin brush make it simple to apply without getting it all over my lids. Starting tomorrow i'll be using this in all of my youtube videos if you want a live demo. My channel is https://www.youtube.com/user/sarikeen?feature=guide so check it out if you want :)
This mascara gives me looong and thin eyelashes. Not too bad at all.
I dont know why there are so many bad reviews? This mascara isnt the best, but it certainly isnt the worst! Like some of the other reviewers said, this stuff wont clump (if you know how to apply mascara properly) and you can really build up the layers. Ive never had this smudge or flake, it makes my lashes look awesome. The only cons I can think of is it smells really chemically, and its a pretty wet formula. I only say I wont repurchase because I like to try out a lot of different mascaras. Once the three months is up I move on to the next!
idk why this product has such bad reviews! i love this mascara!!!
I love this mascara! I have tiny little asian lashes so I need length and volume.
*not that much volume
*hard to remove even with eye makeup remover
I have fairly long lashes but they're lacking in thickness and while this is a lengthening mascara I do wish it added a little more volume. You have to build up about 3 or 4 layers in order to get decent length as well. I also noticed it smells a bit stronger than other mascaras but to me that's not a huge deal. I might buy this again but I still prefer L'Oreal Telescopic to this.
