I started using this because it was in my "to try" stash once my CG LashBlast WP dried out.

Pros:
1) Adds definite length to my lashes! They're already fairly long but when I use this they just about touch my eyebrows!

2) Thin formula

3) Long, tapering brush with fairly stiff bristles makes it easy to wipe off excess product and pinpoint application on hard-to-reach areas like inner and outer corner lashes.

4) Price: it's around $6, and I often receive coupons for Maybelline eye products in the mail which makes this super affordable.

Cons:
1) Brush bristles are long, which can cause the product to transfer to the eyelid.

2) Brush bristles are also widely spaced, which can clump sparse lashes together.

3) I experience some vertical clumping with my double-rowed lashes, which requires extra work and is somewhat annoying.

4) The formula is thin, so I find I have to apply two coats before applying a non-WP mascara to build up volume.

Review:

I usually use WP mascaras to 'set' the curl of my lashes before applying a non-WP mascara to build up volume. I find that doing this helps reduce and/or eliminate transfer from the regular mascaras and also makes the WP mascara easier to remove. I wipe excess product from the brush before applying to minimize clumping and transferring to the eyelid. I have double-rowed eyelashes that can be somewhat sparse at times so clumping for me is both horizontal along the lash line and vertical through my lash rows.

Because this is a lengthening formula, it's thin in order to coat the lash up to the very tips. The brush is long, tapered, and the bristles are long and have pretty wide spacing. If I don't wipe excess product off the wand, my lashes clump vertically and I have to run a long quilting pin horizontally through my lashes to separate them. Wiping the excess product off the wand also helps to avoid transfer to the eyelid from the long bristles going through the gaps in my lashes. The thin formula means that I have to use two coats, though, in order to prevent some wetter, heavier mascaras (looking at you, L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise) from pulling out my curl somewhat.

As for performance, this mascara does what it says it does: it lengthens my lashes so that I look like I have kewpie doll eyelashes. Seriously, I look like I have Disney Princess lash length when I use it. When I use my HG (Smashbox Full Exposure) over it, my lashes are long, thick, and as close as I can get to false lashes without applying them. The hoops I have to jump through are minimal. Add to that its price--one of the cheaper DS mascaras I've found that's widely available--and this mascara has a permanent place in my routine.

Four stars for performance and price. If you have thicker natural eyelashes give this mascara a try.

This mascara gives my lashes a nice natural but longer and defined look. Unfortunately, it smudges off where you don't want it to (panda!), but then even after a triple cleanse (oil, cleanser, and micellar water), bits of it won't come off.

Also, it has a long stiletto shaped brush that has hard bristles, such that I think the wand would be helpful for dishwashing. Hard bristles close to my eye on a too long unwieldy brush? Trash for this! The tube is really cute with its red metallic accents. Once again, a pretty package ruined by a bad product.

My mum bought this and i tried it out too. I must say that I'm quite a fan of maybelline mascaras, since they're all fairly good. But this one is certainly not my favourite. It does its job, lengthening your lashes and maintaining natural look. But it doesn't give volume at all. It's waterproof and sweatproof from what i recall (my mum finished this mascara a year ago). She wasn't impressed and switched back to the magnum volum' express one (our all time favourite). The brush of this mascara isn't special at all. But still quite good for its price

Overall, I do enjoy this mascara. It gives me beautiful length, volume, and holds my hard to curl lashes wonderfully. The only con I would have to say is that I have noticed a big of smudging throughout the day. Other than that, a great waterproof mascara, and I do recommend it.

A true waterproof mascara should stay on while swimming. This one sucks. It is not waterproof at all and left me with huge racoon eyes within a minute of getting wet.

I like this product. It is my back up mascara whenever I am out of Illegal Length mascara by the same company. This mascara does lengthen your lashes and makes them stand out while still maintaining a natural look.

I have short, fine, basically invisible lashes. I prefer layering mascaras rather than hoping that one will do everything for me. I bought this because of the generally positive reviews (plus, it was on sale at the grocery store).

Packaging is sleek and eye-catching and I like the rectangular shape of the tub since it won't roll off the counter. But I strongly dislike how long the wand is. It's like the designers at Maybelline think consumers won't understand it's a lengthening mascara unless they make the wand extra long. It is awkward to use in the corners and you are guaranteed to get mascara smudges while applying it so I advise you to put your mascara on before applying other makeup. If the wand were shorter, I'd give this another lippie.

But besides the length, the wand does a good job of grabbing, combing, and lengthening the lashes. I swear my eyelashes look almost twice as long as normal. The mascara formula is thin and liquid so it doesn't really clump and is a beautifully inky, glossy black. It sort of feels like you're painting your lashes with liquid liner. Formula does not dry immediately, so be careful.

I layer Maybelline's excellent Lash Sensational (which I've also reviewed) over Lash Stiletto and get lashes that are twice as thick, long, and dark. I love the effect. The formulas play well together and respond well to my heated lash curler (which I use to set the curl). Lash Stiletto hardens rather than melting into mush. It also has great staying power and does not smudge or flake on me, even on hot and humid days. Great at holding a curl.

I've had this for about 4 weeks and the formula hasn't thickened up in the way that Maybelline mascaras tend to, which is fantastic. I hate clumpy mascara.

Overall, I'm very happy with this mascara and would repurchase.
