I've been meaning to do this review for the longest time EVER.. I finally got to it today due to my procrastination of studying for my chemistry final. Well I really don't need to study, just write everything down on a notecard! :D We are ENTITLED to one so shut up I'm not cheating! haha xD
Maybelline Lash Stiletto
- Seductive Length
- Shiny Patent Finish
- Grip and Extend Brush
- Ophthalmologist tested
- Contact Lens Safe
Where to buy: drugstores, ulta, walmart/target
Repurchase? Probably not
The packaging of the product is to resemble the heel of a stiletto. I thought this was pretty cute! :)
Typical plastic wand. Not a big fan because when I apply it sometimes I kinda graze my eye and it hurts! :(
The wand is SQUARE, not your old-fashioned ROUND kinda look. This is where the grip and extend comes into play. I think it did an okay job at that unless I poke myself in the eye!
I applied urban decay eyelash primer potion as a mascara base in this review. I'm really liking it.. Plus it's purple! ^_^
Here I tested out the mascara with no primer on.
It does okay with one coat, but that's where I would stop. The second coat doesn't look smoothly applied like the first one but you can't really tell in the picture. I'm not sure if it gives seductive length, but it does give some kind of length.
Here I tested it out using the primer first.
It applied very smoothly and during the application process it applied quicker because I already had my lashes coated with something.I really like the way it looks with just one coat on personally because after I get to the second coat it just starts to look fake!
I don't personally know if it irritates eyes with contacts because I don't wear contacts or glasses. It doesn't really flake until you've had it for a while (around a month) and it starts to dry out and it will flake a little bit throughout the day. This mascara has a funky smell. Well not funky, but very strong like the colossal mascara that Maybelline carries.
I would say this is an average mascara because it doesn't adhere as well as it would without the primer. I mean, I don't have time to put on primer and then mascara, I live a busy life, lol! The camera doesn't pick up on the length very well but it looks much lengthier in person but I would say it does lack volume.
- Provides length to your lashes
- Dries quickly after applying
- Doesn't give volume
- Strong smell
- Mascara starts to dry out after about a month and a half
I'll start giving away products when I review them now. Not the ones I USED, but a new one because I'll sometimes buy two products of the same thing in case I like it. Due to the fact that some products I do buy are pricier I won't do it for every single product but it's whatever right because it's free! LOL..
Giveaway opportunity: Leave a comment telling me what your favorite shade of mascara is and why you like it in that color. I'll randomly select someone to give it out to. It'll close on Friday December 11, 2009 @ 11:59PM CMT. Please leave me your email that you check regularly so I can contact you if you win. Also, let me know if you prefer waterproof or the regular formula :)
I'm a mascara junkie so expect plenty more mascara reviews! I think it's the easiest thing to review because I've mastered taking pictures of my eyes :P haha!
Chemistry final tomorrow! Then I have US History and Psychology finals on Wednesday and Speech on thursday! Wish me luck :)
