I already have long lashes, but I have been searching for a mascara that will give me the false lash look. This seemed promising (and was on sale) but failed miserably upon application.
The lack of volume and curl given by this mascara will cause problems for anyone who already has medium-to-long lashes.
My eyelashes looked like spider-legs the first few times I used this product, but I have since found that combining it with a layer of a volumising mascara works wonders.
I won't be buying it again, because i resent having to use two mascaras at the same time.
However, it does lengthen, and so I would recommend this to anyone with short lashes.
I really liked this at first. I feel like it wears away within 2 hours though. Will not repurchase.
The mascara is ok, its not my most favorite, it does lengthen a bit and separate your lashes but like another MUA reviewer mentioned it does not do anything for volume, it gives very natural long lash look, if you will. The brush is pretty good, I would not re-purchase because to me it is just a regular mascara.
Maybelline's Lash Stiletto is a mascara that separates and lengthens the lashes; however, if you are looking for volume and/ or curl this is not the mascara for you. I would not purchase this one again- it's aweful.
This definitely lengthens my lashes, however, it's kind of clumpy sometimes if you put it on too thickly. You have to let it dry a bit between coats. It also lasts all day for me without smudging/flaking. I like this mascara, but it's not my HG. I prefer volume...but I'll repurchase.
THUMBS DOWN!!! Ever since they discontinued my absolute fave mascara, the lash sylist w/p black... i've been on the search for the perfect replacement.. have yet to be found of course. =( So i tried this one and it totally sucks!! my lashes were curled and once i applied this on, my lashes stuck STRAIGHT OUT!!! SUCKSSSSS. so i tossed it out after one trial. disappointed.
This mascara is so cute . i love it . its very lengthening and can be built up and can make your lashes thick . it also has a square bristle brush and it perfect for getting the lower lashes and the smaller lashes closer to the tear duct. But you will know when it needs to be thrown out because it will flake and you will have little tiny pieces of mascara chunks on your cheeks or somewhere else on your face . but overall this mascara is a must have.
When I first saw the ad on TV for this, I was like OMG I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!! A week later, it was in Walmart. I believe I picked mine up for around $11.99 (Canadian) tax not included, which isn't too bad. Since I have Blonde hair, my eyelashes are Blonde, too. I got this in Very Black. 1 coat of this and my eyelashes are super long, and super dark. My eyelashes with this stuff is touching my eyebrows. I wicked love this stuff. Its even good for my sensitive eyes. I never seen the shine in it, but I love it anyways. I would totally buy this again!
With my first use of this mascara I noticed immediately that the wand itself looks kinda strange, the bristles look like an ancient mascara brush that has clumpy dry mascara stuck to it, but on closer inspection are more of an odd pattern, also known as the criss-crossed bristles that promise to firmly grasp and coat each lash.
I was aware of the different bristles working as I tugged it through my lashes, and was pleasantly surprised at the glossy look it gave my lashes. This died down of course as they dried, but it still was a strong black colour that had more shine to it than any other mascara I've tried out. What a clever brush it has! I did apply two coats, although to be honest one coat would be sufficient for a daytime look, and the mascara left me with thicker lashes that weren't spidery at all although very slightly clumpy (due to the two coats), but impressive looking indeed, I can dig the very slight, and I do mean very slight, clumpy look. The dark black gives the illusion that my lashes are longer and it doesn't pull the curl I give them out.
Hours later I was still walking past the mirror to glance at my lashes and admire the fact that they are the closest they have ever come to looking like false lashes. Let me just emphasize that again, I have sex kitten lashes! I can't tell you how pleased I am that I didn't just ignore this mascara because it's a Maybelline one. My lashes don't even have that very stiff feel to them that you get most of the time with a couple of good coats. This is one mascara that I will cling onto with every ounce of breath in me.
The only negative point I would give it is that it did flake when I purposely rubbed my eyes roughly to test it out, it didn't smudge, and I think it's an all round winner, very glam indeed, and even those who like the spider effect will adore it!
* this is my all time favorite mascara ! i love everything about it. especially the wand size, & the way it is made.
IT DOES NOT CLUMP! yay.
i normally like to try out each new kind of mascara, but now i just keep buying this one again.
but.. when you start to get low on a tube of this mascara it doesn't work as well. that's when you now you need to re-stock on it. i would so like buy 5 in advance. bc believe me , you are gonna love this stuff.
& for added loveliness to your eyelashes, use a thickening mascara over lash stiletto & you will have double the drama to your eyelashes !
