THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING!
A week ago, Kristen, who works with Maybelline, very kindly sent me a few samples of Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto mascara to review. Here it goes. Stick around, the end gets interesting.
The only mascara that does for lashes what stilettos do for legs.
The Grip & Extend brush grasps each lash and coats from every angle
Elastic formula stretches lashes for provocative length
Pro-Vitamin B-5 formula conditions and smoothes for black-patent shine
Contact lens safe and Ophthalmologist tested
The shape of the mascara’s very cute; it’s shaped like a stiletto heel!
The mascara wand is, I have to say, probably the longest I’ve ever used. It didn’t give me any clumpy lashes or any mess on the sides of the eyes. In fact, I was impressed at the length of the lashes it produced.
The mascara gave me the length, but not the volume. For the latter, I’d very much prefer Majolica Majorca’s Lash Enamel Glamour Neo. I reckon this mascara would do very well for those with a full set of short eyelashes (not with sparse hairs). If you don’t need the volume, but want your lashes to go one forever, this should do the trick.
The staying power of the mascara is, sadly, rather mediocre. I had it on for 9 hours, and when I got home, the stiffness of the lashes had significantly subsided. However, if you want it on for less than that amount of time (e.g. 3-4 hours), then you should be able to maintain the length sufficiently.
Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto mascara is not out in Australia yet. In the US, this retails at around US$6, which is cheap as chips. You can read more reviews on the mascara on Makeupalley.
What I like about it: Gave me va-va-voom length, no clumps and no mess.
What I do not like about it: Not available in Australia; not enough staying power
And now for the interesting part of the review – I’ve got a Lash Stiletto mascara to give away! This giveaway is open to all readers (yep, international readers too. Just ‘cos I’m nice like that :P). Just answer the question below in the comments, and you’re in!
“What’s the best mascara you’ve ever used, and why?”
Winners will be picked at random. The giveaway deadline is April 21, and I’ll contact and post the winner on April 22. And knowing me, you won’t be getting just the mascara; I’ll even throw in a goodie or two (or three!) as well.
PS: This giveaway is not the surprise
