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.

Just a heads up if you're actually buying this for the waterproof purposes - look elsewhere! I bought this because I've been using the Buxom waterproof for forever now and wanted to switch it up. And guess who's going back to Buxom! This is far from waterproof. Throughout the days, I'll have black smears under my eyes and black dots along my eyelid. This also does a horrible job at fanning out the lashes and making them look nice and full. My lashes get stuck together when using this and they look short and spidery. The price is great, but it's not worth it.
Jaz from Washington
This mascara doesn't add much length, or anything for that matter. I dislike it so much I'm returning it
DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO
Sam from Florida
I personally LOVED this mascara my lashes are short/medium length and only a little curly. This mascara lengthens it so well it can be seen from far away. The brush also separates the hairs which give it a natural look. I do use another mascara to give volume when I want a dramatic look but I can wear this all on its own and be content. When I do my combo I always get eyelash compliments!!! So definitely use a lengthening one and then a volume one!!! Will buy again!!! Thank you!!

Best Waterproof Mascara
Sydney from Florida
I heard about this mascara on tik tok and had been wanting to try it. I got it before vacation since I was going to be at the beach and the pool and it lasted all day. It makes your lashes look sooo long and beautiful! I absolutely love this mascara.
best Mascara ever
desi from Orange County
I have short eyelashes and it'd literally makes me lashes look so long.
mar from WA
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!
T_Storm from Texas
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.
My Favorite Mascara

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.
