For me, the washable Maybelline Lash Stiletto is close to perfection. I like Lancome Definicils quite a bit, but don't like its price. Plus, sometimes Definicils gives me raccoon eyes. Before I write any more about the Lash Stiletto, I have to say what I look for in a mascara, because I realize it's different from what a lot of people want in one. First, my eyelashes are naturally dark (mostly*), fairly long, thick, and curly. Don't hate me, because here's why I use mascara: I need the color. *The eyelashes I have that aren't dark, are white. I've had them half my life now and while I don't have a lot of them (fortunately the number of them doesn't seem to be increasing from the time they first appeared in my 30s), they stand out like crazy since my other lashes are so dark. So, what I look for in a mascara is something washable, that doesn't smudge or flake, and adds length, but very little volume. And, I absolutely despise cumps! I like my lashes to look relatively natural. Definicils works quite well on many of these counts, but it often smudges under my bottom lashes. Since I need to wear mascara on my bottom lashes, too, to hide the white lashes there, I've tried using a primer just on the bottom lashes, which helps stop the smudging, but it makes Definicils clump (I didn't know that was possible) and flake during the day.
So far, the Lash Stiletto wears really well, even better than Definicils. I haven't tried in on my bottom lashes without primer, but maybe when I run out of the current tube of primer I just bought, I'll try it without.
For me, the Lash Stiletto is very easy to apply and to remove. And, the price is right, especially compared to Definicils' price. I do wish it came in a larger color range, but that's the only negative I can see.
