Broken Heel: Maybelline New York Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara

PRODUCT: Maybelline® New York Lash Stiletto™ Ultimate Length Mascara

I consider myself to be a woman of reasonable expectations and modest tastes. However, my usual preferences fly out the window when it comes to eyelashes. I want them long, thick, dark and glossy. In an ideal world, my lash look would lie somewhere on the line between naturally beautiful and outrageously audacious.

After seeing dozens of print ads featuring models with fabulous lashes, I fell victim to the siren call of Maybelline® New York Lash Stiletto™ Ultimate Length Mascara ($8). Even the product packaging, shiny black and metallic red in a geometric tube, is consistent with the look I was hoping for. Promising to do “for lashes what stilettos do for legs,” I believed, and I purchased.

From the first application, I was disappointed. I thought I’d like the “Grip & Extend” brush but it didn’t do much for my lashes. (To be fair to the brush, that could have been the formula.)  After applying about nine (seriously) coats, I looked in the mirror and thought, “Meh.” My only consolation was that I could keep the product and use it as an everyday mascara.

How wrong I was. Just two hours later, a brief glance in the mirror caused me to do a double take when I noticed black mascara flakes around my eyes. As the day went on, the flaking continued and worsened, so that I was excusing myself every few hours to go to the restroom to clean up the area between my lower lids and the apples of my cheeks. When I got home that night, I threw out the tube.

Maybelline’s overall stellar line of mascaras is marred by Lash Stiletto. This product is not worth buying, even considering the modest price. The only similarity this mascara shares with stilettos is that wearers will find themselves dying to take it off at the end of the day.
