Lash Stiletto is a Lash No-No

June 22, 2010

So as some of you know, we have a slight obsession with eye makeup..whether it be liner, shadow or mascara…we’re always searching for the best products.

In the past we stumbled upon Fiberwig mascara and it was love at first sight. We sang its praises, converted our friends….but we recently got to test out Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto mascara and we were really willing to give it a shot. Really, we wanted to love the cheaper alternative…but sadly our high hopes were dashed as we tried day after day to like this stuff.

Number one problem with it? It flakes…during the day we continuously had to check to make sure we didn’t have flecks of black beneath our eyes. No matter how much or how little we applied, it was always the same. Also, the consistency on our lashes was waxy which is less than pleasant.

Though we gave this mascara a good amount of time (over 2+ weeks) to redeem itself, sadly we kept comparing it to Fiberwig which doesn’t flake and feels like a dream when applied….oh and washes off really easily – no eye makeup remover needed.

But of course we’ll leave you with a positive – it’s super cheap and does give eyes a good pop of color. Buy it at your local drugstore for about $7.

What’s your favorite mascara?
