Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down: Lash Stiletto Mascara

I still remember my Mom taking me to her Mary Kay lady when I was a teenager so that she could show me the "right" way to apply makeup and how to pick complementary colors for my skin. I am still a loyal MK user, with the exception of mascara--theirs has just never cut it for me. So when I saw my friend Courtney, who is a make-up artist, boast about how great this mascara was on her Facebook, I knew I needed to give it a try. Again, this is just my opinion, I'm not being compensated, yada yada, blah, blah, blah...
The Product: Maybelline Lash Stiletto (I'm using the Waterproof version in Brown)

The Pitch:
A mascara that will lengthen your lashes like stilettos lengthen your legs

The Verdict:
This mascara ROCKS!! It really does make your lashes appear incredibly long and it doesn't seem to wilt midday like other mascaras that I have used. The brush is a little stiffer than I am used to and the instructions (yes, I read instructions for mascara, don't you?) are specific about not letting your lashes dry in between coats, but I don't consider those negatives, just info worth noting, so you'll know. At about $6.50 (at WalMart), it is completely in line with, if not a little less expensive than, its other mascara counterparts. It washes off easily and hasn't irritated my eyes (I am a contact lens wearer) at all. A definite keeper!

Now for our survey--what is your #1 go-to cosmetic or beauty aid? Mine is definitely mascara--I have long lashes but they are light, so they just disappear without it.

I tried the lash stiletto and didn't care for it, unfortunately :( I stuck to the directions but felt like my lashes were too stuck together. I'm a big fan of the Almay mascara that is meant for your eye color. I have blonde lashes too...so mascara is my MUST for makeup.

I like a little eye liner. It makes your eyes pop, especially if you go for a diff color than black.
