Lash Stiletto by Maybelline
I was so excited when I saw Maybelline was introducing a new mascara. Not just any mascara, but one that threatened to bring my lashes to extreme lengths! I've long been a fan of Maybelline mascaras. Not the one that is the green and pink staple in many a makeup artists bag of tricks but of their Volume Express and Lash Discovery.
I had high hopes for the Stiletto. I'm happy to report that it lived up to my expectations! Very clever, those Maybelline people, making the tube resemble a stiletto heel! And the whole image is very up-town sleek, the high heel and the cityscape on the packaging, the black and red colors,
reminiscent of a Louboutin heel.
The mascara does a great job lengthening every last lash, creating a dark fan around the eye. It contains Vitamin B5 to strengthen lashes, a groovy "grip and extend brush" which grabs hold of lashes and dispenses rich color, and it washes off easily with makeup remover. Although it does not advertise a thickening element, my lashes are several times plumper than normal with this product. Score!
For the price, you cannot beat the value. In fact, I'm pretty darn impressed with the Lash Stiletto mascara. I tend to really like pricier mascara but there's no good reason to spend the extra cash on department store products when this one works just as well. And you can find Maybelline everywhere. For the price, value, product integrity, ease of tracking it down, washing off in minutes, it's a must-buy next time you are in the market for mascara.
