Product Review: Maybelline Lash Stiletto

You know that pair of sky-high jet-black Christian Louboutin's that go with every dress in your closet and instantly chic-ify any outfit, well Maybelline's new Lash Stiletto is the mascara equivalent. I've realized after test-driving numerous tubes of inky-black lash builders, that with mascara it's less about the formula itself and more about the construction of the brush. Though I'm devoted to my double-ended golden Guerlain wand (with one wand for baby lashes and a bigger wand on the opposite end to lengthen longer lashes), I decided that the name Lash Stiletto was enticing enough to warrant a drugstore purchase. This mascara does not disappoint, precisely because it looks like your own lashes but sexier, longer, and decidedly more Audrey-Hepburn like. The precisely-bristled wand separates and lengthens with zero clumping. It's natural enough that you can wear one coat of it to work during the day, yet it's dramatic enough that when 2 coats are applied after a lash curler, it is perfect for evening cocktails at the Carlyle. If versatility and definition are what you seek (not to mention Louboutin-like sexiness), then look no further than Lash Stiletto (available for purchase at most drugstores).
