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.

Doesn't smudge as other mascaras did for me. It is my go-to. It can be somewhat built up but it's more of a day-to-day mascara than one that adds crazy volume/definition. Also doesn't dry out fast like other mascaras. Great price too.
Have been using for years!
Shefrito from Middle Tennessee
This mascara darkens my lashes great. It covers very neatly, with no clumps. The brush gets to the bottom of the lashes well. It is not really a thickening mascara, but it does make my lashes stand out
Kar from Indiana
One of the best affordable mascaras!
Second best waterproof mascara
Karlykat from Illinois
I have such a hard time looking for a mascara that actually keeps my lashes curled and was looking for something similar to the colossal cat eyes mascara (got tired of the curled wand). Tried this out one day & fell in love, keeps my lashes curled until I take my makeup off. I haven't experienced any clumping or smudging, on the contrary makes my lashes look fuller & longer than what they are. Works wonders !
oldie but a goodie
ProductJunkie1993 from Tumwater Washington
I started useing this mascara in highschool over 10years ago and I always end up coming back to it love the wond brush even has a nice smell I've used "high end" mascara but why bother maybelline makes alot of other mascaras I like too grate lash falsies flair but lash stiletto is my all time favorite hope they never discontinue I would cry lolXD
Fav waterproof mascara!
Curlysue from Colorado
I've used this mascara for YEARS and love it. I've tried others and always come back. I do have long lower lashes and have to be careful to not use too much and use a q-tip to "roll" under the lashes to remove any mascara that could transfer later. But I have oily skin and have done this forever and it seems to help. Plus, I really like the shape of the brush and how the wider end builds up the outer edge of my lashes to lengthen and the narrow end helps me get to the corners. Love it!
Great but smudges
Kait from USA
This mascara is amazing upon first application. It lengthened my eyelashes quite a bit while giving some volume. The main issue I have is no matter what I try, this smudges. I got the waterproof version in hopes to prevent that but it didn't work. I can't wear it unfortunately unless I want to look like a raccoon.
Cheap ! Brush was broken once I opened it

Couldn't use ur lash brush was broken
Mariah from Florida
This mascara is amazing! I have always bought designer mascara but this works better than anything else. I have oily skin and this waterproof formula lasts all day without smudging on my eyelids and under my eyes. It makes my lashes look long and separates them. Definitely my go to mascara.
My fave mascara by far!
Lili from New York
I've tried many mascaras, but this has been my favorite! I have lashes are straight, but when I use an eyelash curler and put this mascara on afterwards, they stay curled all day!! I love the length it gives me and it also does not clump up, it's just amazing!
I would get this mascara again!!
Ava from North carolina
This mascara makes my eyelashes so long!! I long that it doesn't clump up!! I will definitely be getting this mascara again!! At first i didn't know if i was gonna like it or not because i have never tried it before but Im so glad i tried it!!
No effect on lashes that are thin
TheFiveFootWonder from Los Angeles, CA
Unfortunately did nothing for my lashes. I have short, sparse lashes. And unfortunately did nothing. No length, separation or volume. Just looked like there was product on my lashes. But no definition whatsoever.
RJ Redman from Washington
This is my new go-to mascara. I am a person who sweats, has oily skin, and find most mascaras problematic.
Not this one. The wand applicator works very well at separating Every Lash and the only clumps that happened were my own fault. The formula elongated and coated my lashes and Stayed Put All Day. No panda eyes. No flaking. Washed off easily with facial cleanser and water.
I am giddy. Thank you, Maybelline. (!)

Smudges after 5-6 hours :(
MutedWarmOliveNC20 from Seattle
I have straight Asian lashes that never hold a curl. I have to curl and immediately apply mascara one eye at a time because they'll drop if I wait to curl the other one first. This mascara does a decent job at keeping my lashes curled but sadly it has smudged and given me raccoon eyes several times which is a dealbreaker. The first time I blamed my eyeliner because I assumed it couldn't possibly be my waterproof mascara, but it happened again today while I wasn't wearing any eyeliner or dark shadow so this is definitely the culprit. Disappointed!
I always go back
jak from Georgia
I have deep set eyes, and this doesn't smear or leave a shadow. I'm looking for a waterproof mascara that performs like this one, but lasts longer, so I don't have to buy is every 10 days to 2 weeks.
kj from nc
this is one of my favorite mascaras i've tried. it makes my lashes look long and fluttery. however, it's not the best at holding a curl and smudges a tiny bit, but i have that issue with every mascara tbh. worth a try for sure!
I would buy this product AGAIN
Precious from HEMET ca
I really like this mascara. Makes your eye lashes look longer
Best Mascara I've EVER tried!!
Kim F. from Wilmington, DE
I have tried a dozen mascaras and this by far is the best! I have short, sparse lashes, and with 2-3 coats in a row and a touch up on the ends once dry, this mascara KILLS it! I find using it with L'Oréal Bambi Eye mascara (to comb through clumps and adding the perfect oomph of extra length) it makes it a must use combo! I also find on the initial coat I swipe BEHIND the lashes for added drama, then once it dries completely I go in again behind the lashes, then separate with the Bambi Eye. I can't explain it but it works SO well for my lashes. And without curling they are super curled, and I don't feel like my lashes got that with any other mascara.
Portia from Columbus, OH
Smears under my eyes and on eyelids. Not good for hooded eyes.
Annie from N.C.
Apply it long and slow
BleuJae from Denver
This does a really good job at Seperating the lashes but it's just not enough volume for me. I don't like the brush it seems very hard on my sensitive lash line. I've had better mascaras I won't buy this again. If you're looking for something more natural that lengthens your lashes just a bit you might like this
would not repurchase
not good from Arkansas
it did nothing for my eyelashes, I will not be purchasing again
Review junkie from Camarillo
Love this mascara its equivalent to high end mascara brands. Its creamy and keeps your lashes curled. I do recommend it.
keeps my lashes curled
lash alot from Redlands, Ca
after curling my lashes I need something to keep them curled. I use a waterproof mascara for this purpose. Lash Stiletto has been the best mascara I have used to keep the curl with a bonus of lengthening.
