Makeup Review: Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara

After trying and loving Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara, I jumped at the chance to try their new offering for the spring beauty season.

For those that want length, try the Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara.

Let’s see how I felt about this product.

How well does it work?

Lash Stiletto is supposed to be all about the lengthening. I decided to take a before and after so you could judge the results for yourself. Have a look:

lashStilettobanda Well, it certainly looks like it lengthened my lashes. My lower lashes look practically as long as the top!

Here’s a problem you might see in the picture, though. If you look at my top lashes, toward the outside corner, you’ll see that I started out with a lot more lashes than I ended up with. It’s because Lash Stiletto clumps a bit.

I hate having to use an eyelash comb, but you may need it after applying this mascara just to separate the lashes.

Otherwise, I really like how my eyes looked after using Lash Stiletto.

How well does it wash off?

Lash Stiletto’s full name is Maybelline New York Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara. That’s a mouthful!

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of waterproof mascara. I’d rather have my mascara come off when I want it to, thanks.

Well, Lash Stiletto comes off very well with soap and water or eye makeup remover. No scrubbing required.

I, for one, think that’s a very good aspect.

The Final Verdict

Besides the slight clumping, there wasn’t anything wrong with this mascara. It did exactly what it said it would: it lengthened my lashes and washed off easily.’ If you’re looking for something to thicken your lashes, this won’t be it, though.

In the end, I give Maybelline Lash Stiletto a:

B+

You can pick up this mascara at drug stores, online, or at other mass retailers for around $7. You can find it in Very Black (what I used), Soft Black, and Brownish Black.

  1. I used this product now for 3 weeks and love it! However I noticed that a few of my eyelashes are starting to fall out! I wouldnt suggest this for daily use like I was doing.

  2. I’VE USED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME AND FELL IN LOVE. HOWEVER, I AM CONCERNED AT THE YOUNG LADY WHO SAID SHE USED IT AND SOME EYELASHES ARE FALLING OUT. I THOUGHT THE FEW THAT I LOST WAS JUST FOR NEW GROWTH. VERY CONCERNED
