Not exactly a stiletto.. I’m a flip flop girl, so heels and stilettos are a big no no for me. Besides they make me look like a giant.
It’s Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara! I know you must be thinking, “What? Mascara? AGAIN?”. I’m a mascara addict, okay? So that should be expected! Ha! lol. Lately I’ve been receiving packages containing mascaras, so what else can I do other than reviewing them? 😀 (Hint: I still have several other mascaras to review, but no worries I will review them later, gonna change the topic a little bit haha) Anyway, any suggestion which product should I review first? 😉
So here you go!
Color: Very Black
One of the newest addition to my makeup stash. I managed to get this little baby from a swap and actually I received it quite few weeks ago, but I’ve been really busy and ended up forgetting reviewing this one. 😛
Before I proceed, see how glamorous the packaging is!!! Gah, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. Black and red.. Hmm.. Nice combination of color eh? Sexaaaaayyyyy! 😀 Wait, I’m not finished yet! Even the mascara wand looks so pretty! It is pretty slim and it’s getting narrower as you go to the bottom. Resembling a stiletto eh?
My my, I’m too indulged in describing the packaging that I absolutely forgot to tell you guys this mascara is meant for lengthening 🙂 Scroll up and take a look again at the mascara wand! The bristles is quite sparse, indicating a typical lengthening mascara wand. The shape of the wand enables me to maneuver it easily 😉 Even beginners will not poke their eyes or eyelid with the wand (Hey! I was in that state once and I applied mascara horribly 😛 I had smudges here and there on my eyelid).
The mascara formula is just nice, not too thick and hence allowing you to apply more mascara on without getting any clumps. Unlike its elder sister, Full ‘N Soft, the mascara is not runny at all. It dries up pretty fast too. One thing I really dislike from this lovely Lash Stiletto is its fragrance! I have no idea what kind of fragrance they put in the tube, but I seem to always get headache whenever I smell it -_-;. Booooo!
Packaging, check! Wand, check! Formula, check! Now it’s time to see how well this mascara performs its duty 😀 I applied two coats this time, hehe. As usual, pardon my scary eye!
I like the fact that this mascara doesn’t clump easily and washable. It separates my lashes well. However, I personally don’t think it really gives me extra length. You could check out my other mascara reviews and you can compare my naked lashes with this one. I seriously didn’t notice extra length -_-
When I applied the mascara, it feels light. It doesn’t weigh down my lashes, yet with just one pathetic coat, I hardly can see any effect! It looks as if I wore a clear mascara or something. With two coats, I can only see my lashes are lengthened by a tiny small fraction. Geez.
Despite its pretty packaging and those high raves about this mascara, I don’t think it works on me. What about you?
Plus: light formula, excellent wand, affordable, no clumping and flaking
Minus: stupid fragrance, doesn’t lengthen lashes as expected
Anyway, I like today’s weather 😀 A bit breezy. Finally! And yeah, I’m a girl and a vain pot. No one is allowed commenting on this following pic 😛 I just love when the morning sun hits my face xD (I went a bit overboard on the bronzer though :P)
