Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara
"I am so dope, like Louboutin's with the red bottoms, you gotta have 'em, you glad you got 'em."
(Jay Z's I Know)
This is the latest mascara offering from Maybelline. The advertisments and packaging really play up the stiletto reference. The mascara packaging is a narrow black tube with a thin red sole. It is very Louboutin inspired and quite clever. It stands straight and does not topple over. You think that practicality in design is not appreciated in cosmetics, but many makeup users love when their products do not wobble like a weeble.
The mascara formula promises provocative length with black patent leather shine. The traditional bristle brush is fairly well spaced and not dense. It grabs each lash and excels at seperation. My lashes had improved length but were not shiny. It was more of a matte soot. It lasted all day with no mess. I had no smudges or flakes.
The mascara comes in three shades: Very Black, Brownish Black and Soft Black. It retails for $8.95 and is available at your local drugstore.
