Maybelline Lash Stiletto in Very Black

Disclaimer: The product mentioned in this post is bought with my money. I am not affiliated with the company nor getting paid to advertise the product. This post is written with my honest opinion.

I've been using this mascara from Maybelline about a little more than a month. I think it's time to review.

Product Review: Maybelline Lash Stiletto

Where to purchase: drugstores, retail chains, and online at maybelline.com
Price:
$6-8

Made in USA

Description on the back:
* Sweep Grip & Extend Brush upwards from root to tip to grasp each lash and coat from every angle to achieve extreme length and shine. Continue building lashes until you reach your desired look. Do not let dry between coats. Repeat for lower lash line.
* For a truly dramatic, wide-eyed look, curl your lashes with Maybelline New York eyelash curler before applying mascara.
* Removes easily with soap and water or Maybelline New York Expert Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Towelettes.
* Ophthalmologist tested.
* Contact lens safe.

My thoughts: I truly love how it curls each lashes instead of clunking them together like most mascaras I have experienced. The only thing I didn't like about this mascara is how my lashes fall as I apply them. For that reason, we Asians need waterproof mascaras... hehe~

Pros:
* Coat each lashes.
* Love the gorgeous packaging. It looks like stilettos... hehe~
* Comfortable wand.

Cons:
* Not waterproof.
* Falls as soon as I apply it.

Would I buy this again? Maybe, in waterproof if they make some.

Rating: 3.5/5 Tobey's Paws

I can't leave without showing you how the mascara looks on me... hehe~ :P



The last time I did a mascara review couple of you guys mentioned my EOTD. I decided to post for the fun of it... lol~ :P

What I used:

My looks:

UDPP
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Urban Decay Palette:
* Maui Wowie on the top lid and bottom inner corner
* Smog on the outer "V," crease, and bottom 2/3
CG Sugar Rush as highlight
L'oreal HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Midnight Blue
Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Duo in Smashing Beacon on the inner corner (white side)
Maybelline Lash Stiletto


Speaking of mascaras, check out my other reviews (click here)!!! I did one in Hard Candy and CoverGirl LashBlast Luxe Mascara in 840 Black Platinum. Anyways, going back to Maybelline Lash Stiletto. I spoke too soon about having a waterproof one... lol~ I just noticed a new stand at Walgreens!... wheee~
They also came out with precision eyeliner!... wheee~


I also saw another stand at Walgreens that stood out that I'm looking forward to trying... hehe~
L'oreal HIP are coming out with 5 matte eyeshadow duo, 3 metallic eyeshadow duo, and 6 chrome eyeliner pencil... woo hoo~ I'm so looking forward to trying the green matte duo and the metallics.... hehe~ :)


I'm going to end this post with a video of Tobey.
Have you ever seen a dog eat with a fork? He bites on it several times before he grabs the food. It's so cute!

Thank you for the mascara review! The packaging does look nice!

I might try the EOTD that you did since I have the same Urban Decay palette! I haven't really used it yet hahaha.

I'm not fair at all! I haven't really been using whitening products even though I love them. My skincare is more to the mattifying side.

Yeah, Korean brands like The Skin Food are way overpriced here! They're at least 2X more =[ What products are you interested in?

I don't think you can see my first EOTD clearly but I preferred it to my second one which was the purple look. Thank you for the compliment but I have a long way to go before I even reach your level!

LOL, the salesperson was very diplomatic!

I love Lash Stiletto, but I really have to curl my lashes before I use it. I agree that the formula would be improved if it were waterproof!

Tobey is so adorable!!

izumi said...

ndoodles said...

Aw, your doggie is sooo cute! My dog loves watermelon too :D!
BTW, you definitely hit pan on that Cover Girl Trio! Nice.

kawaiikao said...

Roxy said...

~tHiAmErE~ said...

We don't have the Lash Stilleto here yet..

im so dying to try one!

i love how you are able to perfectly line your eyes...i can never do that!
you're awesome!

& lol at your dog!
i bet he likes being pampered & all
eating with a fork..
kawaii!
^_^

Jo said...

i've read so much hype about the lash stiletto and after seeing yours i think i just may have to get it haha

gio said...

aww tobey is so cute!!

Thanks for the review, your lashes look really nice.

Blair said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to ask, what was Tobey eating in the video? Watermelon or carrots?

Gosh, you are so neat!!! That makes me even more curious about your collection!! Maybe you can do a quick video? What do you do with the old products once you take them out from your makeup drawer?

How many palettes have I not used? Erm... does the mineral shadows that I pressed count as a palette? You can see it here. If that is included then maybe four? hahaha

It's not fun to see my collection, those are all the shadows that I have including the two from my FOTDs =[ In fact, they are all on my blog =D Three of them were given to me in a swap, one from UD, one from Castledew and the last one would be the one that I linked in the previous paragraph.

I like the way you line your eyes and your eyeshadow application but I'm too lazy to type more so I just comment on a single part hahaha.

I'd love to try some things from Banila Co as well! It's a pity that we don't have it here. 2X more or not, I'd still buy something ;D

Jo said...

aww I do have a post coming up I've just been very lazy haha

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

dang i hate mascara that does hold :( love the neutral look!

Tobey is such a smart dog!!

Blair said...

What!?! I love checking my e-mail and seeing a notification about a new comment from you! You're not spamming at all!!!

Awww... I'm sure you are not chubby!! But I won't mind gaining weight if I can eat the food that you cooked ;D

We can never have enough makeup! People who aren't interested won't understand our obsession with it hahaha.

Did you watch SYTYCD? Which couple/dance did you enjoy the most? I can't wait to see next week's new partnerships!

Blair said...

Ahhh, I was considering between Deep Throat and Orgasm! Maybe I should have gotten Deep Throat? The next time I'm buying something American, I'll ask for your opinion because you'd probably have it somewhere in your HUGE collection! ;p

Now I'm lemming for Angelika hahaha... I love blushers but I really shouldn't be buying them cos they make my scars look more obvious! =[

I'm not sure, I think her name is Janette? Whatever, there are lots of J's this season! I was quite sad that Caitlin was eliminated! I'm not a Phillip fan, so I don't really care hahaha.

Your dad is super cute! You can always take an umbrella out with you! I know that people think it's fobby but I'd rather be fair than bothering with that crap hahaha

Blair said...

No no noooo... I hide my scars beneath a tonne of concealer (I have quite a bit of concealers lying around). And the lighting helped in disguising those horrible scars =D

LOL I don't think I'm getting Angelika... It's difficult for me to get it! If I'm getting a baby pink blush, it'll most probably be Shu Uemura's Glow on M Pink 33E. It's cheaper and easier for me to get hold of Shu Uemura.

I don't have a favourite dancer so far. None of them really grabbed my attention if compared to American Idol lol. But if I have to choose, I think Kayla and Kupono are my favs!

I know what you mean! I leave my umbrellas in the shops too and forget all about them until I reach home lol.

I wish we have IMATS over here! I really admire you for holding back from buying the MSF in Gentle. I'd have gone crazy in there hahaha

Blair said...

Hmm, I didn’t get any gay vibes from Kupono. And no results turned up after some googling. Is it because of his voice? hahaha (I first got my suspicions after listening to Adam’s voice when he talked to the judges/answered Ryan’s question)

My blog is popular? I don’t think so... I don’t get many visitors =[

What are you talking about? Of course I won’t forget you! You’re one of my closest friends in the blogosphere!!!

Icks, I think I have seven concealers? I have a mixture HE to drugstore concealers – Giorgio Armani, MUFE, Prescriptives, MAC, Maquillage, NYX and ELF Studio. I think you can sense that concealers are very important to me hahaha.

Ahhh, I understand why you didn’t go crazy at the IMATS. I’m too poor to haul now (I spent a lot in buying materials for my jewelry craze). I’m sort of happy that my birthday is coming soon, the happy news is I get money from my relatives (yay!), the sad bit would be I’m getting OLDER!!! =[

Blair said...

You are correct! HE is high end hahaha. I’m sorry for being too lazy to type the whole thing out ;p

I don’t really have a favourite concealer, I use most of them at one go! hahaha. I know I know! I’m a concealer fiend! I’ll use ELF Studio or MAC for undereye circles, NYX to correct the redness around my cheek area (from the blemishes) and I’ll conceal with MUFE and Prescriptives or MQ. I haven’t opened the GA one hahaha.

Oooh, I lost quite a few followers as well! I just lost one a few days ago. I feel bad when the numbers decrease, I think it’s because I don’t update that regularly or it might be caused by my boring content *shrugs*

I wouldn’t know if Kupono is metro. He’s not cute enough to attract me hahahaha! ;D The one thing that I noticed is the contestants are pretty short! Most of them are shorter than Cat. I keep looking at the height difference they face the judges lol.

The reasons why I ALWAYS tag you is because I consider you as one of my closest friends here =D I hope you don’t find my way of expressing love irritating hahaha.

I made quite a bit of jewelry but I didn’t show them on my blog. I didn’t tell you earlier but I received a hate comment in one of my jewelry posts. Anonymous didn’t like it when I posted an inspired piece... Initially I approved her comment but after some time, I decided to delete it. No point in leaving it up =D

Blair said...

I can’t believe that those haters said that to you! They really have nothing else better to do!!! Urghhh...

I’m still awake at 3:21am! Just finished working on my new layout when your comment came =D I’m so happy that I’m done!! The new one looks a bit childish but I don’t care ;D

One year of blogging? But your archive starts from December. Hmmm, that reminds me, have you ever swapped with Yumeko? I remember that the blogger who swapped with Yumeko has a dog named Tobey who left some paw prints during some repainting around/outside the house. And I think she stopped blogging a short while after posting that. Are you that blogger? If you are, you’re one of the first blogs that I have ever read!! hahaha

Oh, I didn’t know that Cat was so tall! I was wondering why are the dancers so short hahahaha

Blair said...

Oh dear, I always forget that you are allergic to SPF!

If you want, I can help you with your layout =D But I have to warn you that I’m not good in it!

I wanna be taller as well but not as tall as Cat ;D No Asian guys will come after me if I’m that tall and Caucasians are rare here hahaha. I think my height is in the short spectrum. Most people are taller than me =[

Hardship? Oh dear, that sounds bad! I hope everything resolves soon!

Ahhh yes, paw prints on cement! It sounded very cute, maybe that’s why that post stuck around in my mind =D

miRaCLe said...

ahh.. i can't live without waterproof mascara >.< perhaps i need a oilproof one if they have it :p
but I like how it doesn't clump!! even P&J mascara clumps if it's not applied carefully.. :p

OMG!! Tobey is super CUTE!!! eating watermelon of a fork!!! hahahha :D
