Did everyone have great weekends? I had a ball hosting a “Beauty 101″ class with a group of 16-year old young ladies. I even put together a little booklet that I will share with the Clumps of Mascara family later on this week. And the weather in Tallahassee, Florida was absolutely divine! The nomad in me is itching to make another big move but I have to admit….it’s going to be difficult to move to city that isn’t as warm as Florida is this time of the year.
Boy, I sure have been on a Maybelline mascara tip for a while, uh? I can’t help it! These older mascaras may be diamonds in the rough and I may not know about it. Is the Stylist one of them? Or just a big bust?
Check out the review…..
Price: 5 out of 5 (around $6. I got it as a BOGO buy from Walgreens )
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What it claims: “Exclusive V-Styling mascara comb sculpts and thickens lashes up to 65%. ” (source)
The truth: Aww look! It’s got a baby comb. How cute! In all real seriousness….this is a pretty good mascara. Maybelline is truly one of the best in the mascara making department, IMO.
What I loved about it: Obviously the wand is pretty cool lookin’. And not only that it is pretty effective in getting ALL of your lashes out there.
I find that it is easier to use than the traditional mascara wand. It coats each and EVERY lash with ease.
What I didn’t like: This may be the klutz in me, but I ended up getting a TON of mascara on my lower lash line when trying to apply this mascara. I mean, it’s insane…of course I have learned how to manipulate the brush a little better but my first few applications were a hot mess. LOL, literally.
Overall: To be honest…I kinda wanted to hate this mascara. LOL, seriously. I feel like a broken record when it comes to singing praises to Maybelline’s mascaras. But it’s not just simple adoration for these babies. As the saying goes, “Proof is in the pudding” and I hope that you all see that I’m not exaggerating with the before/after photos and videos. Simply put..this mascara is GREAT! Per its claim, it DID thicken my lashes and gave a crazy amount of length. The volume junkie in me would have liked a little more volume but I think that this is great for every day wear. It is easy to remove, doesn’t irritate or flake and is just a pleasure to work with.
LOL…like it’s a co-worker or somethin’. On to the photos.
I like mascaras with the comb! Clinique High Definition Lashes mascara has a wand like this and I found success with that baby too.
Would I recommend it?: Sure do! Especially if you find that your lashes are wild and crazy like me. The comb will set them straight.
Have you ever tried this mascara? A fan? Didn’t find success with it? Do you prefer mascaras with combs? I would love to know your thoughts!
