Overall I think Lash Stiletto is a decent mascara. It lengthens and separates (for the most part) which is generally what I look for in a mascara (Note: I have very long and thick lashes to begin with). It's very dramatic so if you want an everyday mascara you should probably skip this one or get it in brown. Some issues I had with it is that it did not separate the lashes in the outer corners of my eyes, which is a problem I usually have with mascaras that I am looking to correct (it's very annoying). I like the brush but like I said its hard to get to the outer corner lashes, which creates my problem. In addition to that, Lash Stiletto flaked on me pretty much everyday and one morning (yes, morning, about an hour or two after I applied the mascara) I noticed a pile of black flakes under my eyes. Not attractive. While overall I like Lash Stiletto and its clever packaging, I figure there are probably better mascaras out there, even in the drug store realm. So, now that my three month trial with LS is over, I'm moving on to Rimmel Sexy Curves. I'll see how that goes...

Clumped like crazy, didn't add any length. I didn't like the brush- it was so long that I couldn't get near the roots of my lashes like I usually do. I will not be buying this again.

Okay okay, so there are total mixed reviews for this product. I think i've found a way around the "spider" lash issue. So yes this product does give you very long, pin thin lashes. If you already have thick lashes, this would be great for you. If you don't have such thick lashes, do what i do: I use a thickening mascara such as lash blast on the roots and let it dry. Then I apply Lash Stiletto to the mid lash to tips but i do it from behind the lashes instead of applying it to the front. It totally eliminates any clumps left behind by the lash blast and gives you full AND long lashes! I know that seems elaborate, but it's an option. As for this product, I mean it does what it says it'll do. And i personally like the smell. The only thing it doesn't do is add shine, but that's okay with me. I like having it in my mascara collection.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS MASCARA AT ALL AND THIS IS WHY .. YES IT GIVES YOU EXTREMELY LONG LASHES BUT IT LOOKS LIKE SPIDER LASHES UNLESS YOU HAVE SUPER SUPER THICK AND FULL LASHES AND EVEN THEN WHO KNOWS .. IT SMELLS AWFUL ! I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THE PACKAGING IS CUTE BUT NO I DONT RECOMMEND IT .

Does a poor job thickening lashes, which is what I most seek. Does slightly better in lengthening but not a product I would repurchase.

I'm not someone who has to use mascara everyday, however I've noticed over the years that my lashes are not as curled as they used to be. I have quite thick, long lashes anyway, but they are starting to thin at bit. What I was looking for in a mascara was something that could hold the curl and not clump, flake or make my lashes look dry. I did try clear mascara but it didn't really hold the curl well however, Lash Stiletto works great. I really like the brush on it and it really gives a 'shine' to my lashes (I suppose the patent look). I would recommend this to anyone who has lashes like mine, definitely try it. I have used Lancome and Dior Mascaras, which were really nice but because I didn't use them everyday it just wasn't worth the expense. Maybelline is cheaper and does the job. I wouldn't recommend this if your looking for volume, as if you have really sparse eye lashes, I think they will end up looking spidery. EDIT:06/20/10 I thought Full n' soft was better butit was strting to look clumpy so I prefer LS.

I got this about 2 months ago and so far I've only used it around 4 times maybe? It lengthens slightly but it clumps up like crazy. I didn't like it at all. It didn't work well at all when I tried it. My lashes were messy and clumped.

Loved the packaging, but when I bought it was pretty disappointed. It doesn't volumize at all and it reeks!!! I can't even open it how back it smells :(

LOVE this mascara! Great for lengthening. My favorite mascara for lengthening. It was very easy to work with and didn't have to work for the length. I would definitely repurchase and recommend to anyone who is looking for a lengthening mascara!
