REVIEW Maybelline Lash Stylist ...

By Elke

Well, after my total love affair with Maybelline's Waterproof Lash Discovery, I decided to venture out and try their Lash Stylist Mascara. Mascara type is a comb, not a wand, with their ad claiming:

**Our boldest, most open-eyed look.
Sculpt. Thicken. Lift.
A silky-smooth formula that delivers amazing lift and volume that's super bold.**

Hmmm... Well, it's both good and bad.

Where shall I start?

Good:
It makes eyelashes super super dark. Like Maybelline Great Lash dark. And brushing on with it's comb is easy, and with very few clumps to brush through. Stays on forever (I got the waterproof version). Makes lashes darker, longer, but only slightly thicker.

Bad?
This mascara takes forever to dry. I'd say give it 10 minutes to make sure you're not smudging everywhere and messing up your eye makeup like it did to me. Though it looks very dark and nice, it also, once it is dry, gives a very spidery effect to the lashes. Not lush and beautiful. Spidery. Not really the look I was going for. And at the end of the day, you feel like you have metal sticks on your eyelashes. So stiff and hard that it took forever for me to get it off. And if you're a peel off type like me (when mascara bugs me, I just try to peel if off my lashes... not a great habit) but I couldn't get this stuff off me to save my life. So my eyes bothered me for hours until I could get home and wash this stuff off. And I mean a major washing was needed. No regular cleansing for this. An oily eye makeup remover, then face wash, then a bit of eye makeup remover again was needed to get this stuff off.

So my vote? After my oohh and ahhing over Lash Discovery, sadly, I'd say Lash Stylist needs a lot more improvement. I like how dark it made my lashes, but that was about it....

Also, sadly, my excitement over Maybelline's Pure Makeup in a concealer is over. Meant for blemishes only, this teeny tiny little concealer wand (I thought it was an eye pencil at first) won't do for under eye circles which I was hoping and looking for.
