Maybelline New York Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Waterproof Mascara, Very Black, 1 Count - REVIEW

  • I have very thick natural lashes but they aren't very long. I do use a lash serum and that has helped me get some additional length but I still need to use mascara.WHY I USE LASH STILETTOThere are so many mascaras out there. I choose this one because it gives great length and it isn't too thick so I can keep my lashes separated even when I apply multiple coats. These are the basic properties of a good lengthening mascara.The price is great and this mascara has been a reliable old friend for many many years.WATERPROOF OR NOT?Lash Stiletto comes in regular and waterproof. I always use the regular because I don't like how waterproof mascara performs in general. I prefer to use regular and then I put a little finely milled powder under my lower lash line to prevent smudging and that has been working well for me for many years.There is nothing wrong with the Stiletto waterproof if you typically prefer waterproof mascara: you will like this one too.HOW TO GET THE BEST PERFORMANCEYou know how mascara seems to dry out quickly or go clumpy? Here's how you can prevent that from happening and actually use all the product in that tube. Your mascara will last much longer....1. Get disposable spoolies, the regular nylon brush kind, not the spiky silicone ones (those are better for using to separate lashes or remove clumps, they don't work well to apply lengthening mascara).2. Don't ever use the brush that comes with the tube. Keep it free from makeup and other powders and lotions that might be on your lashes. That way when you put the lid back on the tube it doesn't contaminate the mascara with all that extra gunk that gets on your lashes when you are getting ready.3. Load up the disposable spoolie. Insert and twist it round to load it up. DON'T PUMP IT (that adds more air to the tube which will dry the mascara out). You can get enough product on the disposable so you won't need to put it back in the tube. If you find you actually need more: toss the one you just used and load up a fresh spoolie.That's it! What makes mascara dry out and go clumpy so fast is all the stuff that gets on our lashes and gets inserted back in the tube from the built in brush. Now your mascara will last until you use it all up and you won't ever have gunky clumpy lashes ever again!
  • This is the best mascara I have ever used. I get so many compliments on my lashes, people think that they’re fake. It’s a great value for the money.
