Black Stiletto

on
Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Here's to another new drugstore product that I finally tried and tested! Maybelline is one of my favorite brands that's not only affordable but also offers good quality products. Because I'm running out of mascara and I'm the kind of person who loves trying out new stuffs out there, I chose Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto as a substitute for The Falsies Volum' Express.

The mascara featuring Chubette, I got her as a Christmas gift from my editor in chief.
And the black cat postcard behind her was a farewell gift from my mentor. My ex-coworkers are so lovely ♥︎

It claims to be the hottest thing lashes will ever wear. The mascara that does for lashes what stilettos do for legs, with 55% longer lashes, and shiny patent finish.

The wand is bendable, it's supposed to grasp each lash and coats from every angle easier.

Directions: Brush upwards from root to tip to grasp each lash and coat from every angle to achieve extreme length and shine. Continue building lashes until you reach your desired look. Do not let dry between coats.

Review: To tell you the truth, at first I was interested with the sleek packaging rather than the promises it gives. My lashes are thin and short, I'd be looking for a mascara that gives both length and volume. Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto does what it promises, it lengthen my eyelashes like twice longer, it's also waterproof and as a contact lenses user I don't find it flaking. However, I'll be still constantly try another mascara out there that could give me both volume and length. About the unpleasant smelling odor, it only bothers me while applying the product. This mascara dries so fast, so don't worry about that. It can be tricky at times if you want to apply many coats, always remember not to let dry between coats or else it'll get clumpy.

What I like:
  • lengthens my lashes
  • holds my curl
  • contact lens safe
  • nice glossy packaging
  • waterproof
  • easy to find in any drugstore
What I dislike:
  • unpleasant smelling odor
  • clumpy when applying too many coats
Who would love: Those with thick lashes looking for length.

Price: IDR 95k

Time to use a bright nail polish! I'm using Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat in peach fuzz and Etude House Petit Darling HD Beam in fantastic pearl as a top coat.

The Fuzzy Coat texture is like small threads in clear base,
while the Petit Darling is a clear top coat in small glitter shimmering particles.

The final look.

The result looks cute but I definitely don't love it! The nail polish was super duper difficult to remove! T^T So frustrating. Thankfully, I only did one coat and applied them just on my finger nails.
Anyone here using this Fuzzy Coat too? Mind to share the tips on removing it?

I mustn't be the only one who loves summer, right? On Summer, I have a chance to travel to new places, meet up new people, and learn something new. My favorite Summer so far was back in 2010 when I visited West Europe. Read the stories here and here. This year, I'll be likely visiting the States again to reunite with my sister! YEAY~! Dunno if I would be able to visit somewhere new or just stay in NYC. But hopefully, my mom and I could visit our family friend in Memphis too. Four months to go! I can't wait to shop around the Times Square and Fifth Avenue!!

  3. I've never tried that mascara, but I love the stiletto eyeliner, it's very precise.

    I also have the fuzzy nails in a blue/green shade. I think I like yours better.

    Great blog.

  13. Hello, new reader here! You absolutely have amazing skin and red lipstick fits well with your skin tone :). Now back on topic... I've always wanted to try out this mascara, this post makes it look very promising! I know in your post you said it clumps up your eyelashes if you apply too much, which is what I'm scared of. I'm a mascara-packer. lol.

  25. Fuzzy coats seem to be so fun !
    You can try a peel off base coat. It works well for glitter nail polishes so I think it's going to work for fuzzy nail polishes as well.

  27. Hey pretty yea I wish you did a close up on your lashes...! But nice review! I just learned that mascaras are not meant to be kept for over 5 months due to bacteria, shocker... So I need as much as mascara reviews as possible

    Cheers love
