maybelline lash stiletto

Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara claims to be the hottest thing that your lashes will wear. according to the Maybelline website, it does to your lashes what stilettos do to your feet, which i have no inkling what exactly. (i'm not such a huge fan of stilettos.)

as quoted from the website:
- 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

when my online makeup supplier in Facebook, Yunique Shop, got this product available, i did some research. i found lots of good reviews so i immediately ordered one tube since i love the Maybelline Volume Express Hypercurl Mascara. lesson learned: brands cannot be entirely trusted.

anyway, on to my findings:
i love this product because...
...the wand is absolutely wonderful. the clump-free claim is so so so true.
...lash length is definitely improved. doesn't smear much or run off when i wash my face, unlike other brands i know that run like ink when hit with water. subtly dramatizes your lashes. i can't really pinpoint a hug difference, but i know something looks better with my lashes.

i don't like this product because... doesn't hold up the curl unlike Volume Express.

this product was a major disappointment for me, even though the only thing wrong with it is that it doesn't hold the curl. being born with thick and long lashes, i don't really need mascara that much. some people have even commented that i always look like i'm wearing falsies. BUT! i have ramrod straight lashes that need all the help just to look curled. that's why i prefer mascaras that can hold the curl. i probably won't repurchase, and i'm using it to lengthen my lashes on top of Volume Express.
it's still a bargain though, it cost me Php380.00.

have any of you used Lash Stiletto? how did it work for you?

stay red,
