It's Guest Beauty Blogger Wednesday! And today we've got former beauty editor and present beauty star Nadine Jolie, editor-in-chief of the blog Jolie Nadine, and author of the books Beauty Confidential and Confessions of a Beauty Addict. Here, she gives us the scoop on Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara.
There's a new mascara on the block: Maybelline Lash Stiletto.
Now, I am beyond skeptical when it comes to Maybelline and mascaras–I know that everybody else in the world seems to hold hands and sing songs and praise Jesus when it comes to the wonders of Maybelline Great Lash, but I, personally, cannot stand it. Lash Stiletto, on the other hand, isn't the best mascara I've ever come across, but it's definitely not the worst ... and, in fact, I think it's pretty darn good for a drugstore offering. Here's the deal: It has a rose scent, much like Diorshow, that either you'll love or you'll hate. Me? I like it; I think it's a nice touch and ups the glamour factor. It also dumps a massive quantity of product on your lashes, and really does extend them to spindly, otherworldly lengths. (Read between the lines: This is not a mascara for the faint of heart!)
My one problem with it is that it's slightly clumpy, and if you don't apply it carefully, you could be left with Tammy Faye Baker lashes. Run the brush over the lip of the tube or squeeze the excess onto a tissue before you apply; the remaining amount, I've found, is perfect for defined, extended, Daddy Longlegs on steroids lashes.
