Most Helpful Positive Review Like this mascara
I have short lashes and can get longer ones with this mascara.....and, although my lashes are NOT curly, I never using an eyelash curler because I feel that may weaken the lashes. This mascara may flake just a little here and there or not at all, but for the price and results, I can deal with that. I also love the way it makes my eyes look......so dark......never had a mascara give me that "look" before. It says in instructions on product not to let dry between applications and they are right....."if" you let TOO MUCH time go by between applications, BUT, if you just concentrate on getting the look you want on the first eye you do, you will never achieve it.....you need to apply to first eye, then let it dry up during the few seconds you're doing the second eye, and then go back to the first eye, etc., until you get the look you want....I find doing 3 applications between eyes gives me the look I want. I would definitely give this mascara a try if you have short lashes because I haven't come across a mascara yet (not that I've used them all) that has given me the length I'm looking for. You don't have to worry about volume because the dark look you get provides that.
Most Helpful Critical Review NOT WATERPROOF Stiletto
After applying this product before going to a pool party with my friends, I was confident that it was going to last me through the day, after all, it's waterproof! ABSOLUTELY NOT! The moment I had jumped into the pool, my mascara started to run and because I had so heavily applied it, clumps of it ran down my face leaving not only grey, blotchy circles under my eyes but black globs all over. The substances in the foundation of the mascara are cheap and wear down when it reaches heavy chemicals and liquids such as chlorine and salt water, yet as for the rain, in my experience it should be fine. I was greatly disappointed with this product.

I have short eyelashes and it'd literally makes me lashes look so long.

It does not grip your lashes well enough to lengthen, I have to really make a mess for it to even grip my lashes. I've always had pretty good luck with mascara, I have small/medium length lashes and sparse/ not full. I've always been able to get them really long without making a mess with other mascaras. The bottle and the wand seem too light to be able to control how much, or I should say how little to put on. There's better mascaras out there for length.
Best Drugstore Dupe!
Nicole P. from Erie, PA
This is literally the best drugstore dupe that I've found! I have a hard time getting the dramatic length and volume I like for my mascara, and was a firm believer that paying more meant getting a better product. I was using a $25 mascara the worked good, but holy cow, this works better! My lashes have never been so prominent! I love this formula and it is my new go-to!
Love this mascara
Sheebz from Oceanside, CA
I bought this because in my makeup class I was taught that waterproof mascara holds the curl in your lash better than regular mascara. Sure enough, it does hold the curl all day. I love this mascara because it is what it says: waterproof. It does not smear, streak, or run. It lasts all day and sometimes the next day if I forget to remove it before I got to sleep (oops). My only complaint is that is a little clumpier than I like but it's not that big of a deal for me. I love the price point as well!

I have been using this product for a few years and it is my go to mascara! It doesn't clump and make my lashes pop!
Best Inexpensive Mascara!!!
C from AZ
This is the best!!! Always lengthens and separates lashes very well! I get asked what Mascara I use pretty often and most are surprised to hear it's so affordable and is just as good if not better than other name brand/expensive Mascara. Also, Ulta is really good about having a sale on them ... buy one, get one half off! What an awesome deal!!!! You won't find it for a better price! Get it and start getting your compliments today!
Gigi from Corvallis
This mascara did a great job at making your lashes look natural. Not clumpy, very lightweight. Just the smell is awful! I wore it twice and threw it away. Made my eyes water, smelled like it was super expired and old.. but I just bought it. Would NOT buy again, however if you don't mind smells this is great!
It stinks but works really good!
Haylee w from NYC
This mascara is reallyyyyyy nice on my lashes!! But it stinkssssss! I'd recommend
Emily from Oklahoma
I ordered this and it came in in 5 days which was awesome, it was great for length and added a little
Volume. I usually am not that good at applying mascara because it gets all over my under eye and eyelid and this is one is very hard to take off and takes time to take off. Overall In love just wish the removal was faster because sometimes it takes my lashes with it.
Great for lower lashes
Nicolew from NY
I really like this on my lower lash line, it doesn't smudge as badly as others can. On top lashes it's just average at best
No long term use
allyf89 from Phoenix, AZ
This mascara was great for length and volume at first. However, after 2 weeks of use, my lashes started to get very brittle and break off. I am switching back to my Covergirl mascara.
Kara from New Jersey
Not a horrible mascara by any means. I prefer a more voluminous mascara to start with so that was probably my first mistake. Every time I applied it I had to clean up afterwords. Applies an okay amount of length but I wasn't super impressed.
Jm from Oregon
I am a big lash type of gal. Unfortunately this mascara isn't the one for that. This is more of your everyday natural mascara. It gives a bit of length but mostly just separates the lashes. I am not crazy about the brush on it. It is good if you want something that just enhances your natural lashes.
Laney from Ohio
This is my go to mascara! I love the length and volume it gives me.
Used to Love
vberk from Tennessee
I wore this product when I first starting wearing makeup in high school. I loved how long it made my lashes! Unfortunately the scent put me off - to me it smelled like beer - and I switched to another product. Still great for achieving length!
Easy to remove
jerseygirl16 from New Jersey
Lash stiletto regular mascara is easy to use, but only defines a bit. Washes off easily, which is great. You need to keep building so it takes longer to apply. For the price, it's reasonable, but not my favorite. I did like the LashStiletto waterproof much better . It really kept my straight lashes curled up all day, which is next to impossible with my lashes. The waterproof is very hard to remove, but using makeup remover towelettes ( Neutrogena) did the job.

Best lengthening mascara I've ever tried!
Catluvr93 from Chicago, IL
This is bar-none the best lengthening mascara I've ever used. The brush is perfect, great for using both horizontally to build the entire lash fringe, as well as vertically to go after those individual lashes. I've been in high-end cosmetics for many years and have tried most mascaras out there but keep coming back to Maybelline Lash Stiletto. It's the best and it's just an added bonus that it costs 1/3 to 1/4 the price of the high-end mascaras! It does tend to dry out a little faster than average, just a little, but I've found that most lengthening mascaras do. I highly recommend, especially if long lashes is your passion.
Love this mascara!
Mary B. from Texas
I have hooded eyelids. And this is about the only mascara that will allow my lashes to stay curled!
And it doesn't smudge, and if you want you can build. But it goes on smoothly and does not clump!
It distributes evenly across your lashes. This mascara is always in my make dresser.
Now I just use this on my top lashes and with a primer. I have others but this is my go to for everyday.
I use a different mascara on my bottom lashes.
Dorie T from San Antonio texas
I was excited to get this as I read so many positive reviews. Mine came in and it's very light, doesn't give the wow affect I was hoping for. Seemed pretty empty to where it really didnt feel it has anything on the brush when going on the lashes. I thought maybe I got a defensive one? Oh well
Whitney M from Illinois
I love this mascara! The brush is amazing for thin lashes, separated them evenly and elongated them tremendously for me. The only downfall is it does begin to flake after about 4-5 hours of wear and it's hard to apply multiple layers, as it doesn't seem to keep the lashes separated or elongated when reapplied.
THIS IS NOT THE WATERPROOF VERSION
Ashley from arkansas
I'm not sure why people keep commenting about it being waterproof or not waterproof. This is not even the waterproof version, please really need to read before leaving bad reviews. This mascara is great for the price. if you want something waterproof, BUY THE WATERPROOF VERSION.
love this 👀💕✨🌙

this is probably the best mascara i have ever used 🤩
Natural lash look
Samantha from Fort Collins, Colorado
I like the brush on this mascara because it's small and thin much like my lashes. Mascara's with big brushes just don't work well with my thin lashes. I wouldn't say this adds length to my lashes at all and it doesn't make them look full. I would say it gives a very light and natural makeup look so I like that for everyday wear. However, I've noticed that it does start to flake after about 3 to 4 hours. I think it's an okay backup mascara if I'm not wanting to buy a $25 mascara at the time.
