Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto

 I was with Jen (, Kai ( and Gie ( at Trinoma when we decided to go in at Landmark to check out some acrylic makeup compartments, but sadly, Landmark's already closed. Boo! Hence, we decided to go to SM North's Department Store 'cos Jen and Kai needs to buy something too. When we passed by Maybelline's booth they are still on 30% off and I was like, "This is too good to miss out!" So Gie recommended I buy the Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto Mascara.

Swatch :)
"The hottest thing lashes will ever wear. The mascara that does for lashes what stilettos do for legs." I was like, tire my lashes? Erm, grow 'em varicose veins? Haha! Kiddin' aside, it claims pure goodness: 
  • Grip & Extend Brush Grasps each lash and coats from every angle
  • Elastic formula stretches lashes for provocative length
  • Pro-Vitamin B-5 Formula conditions and smoothes for black-patent shine
  • Contact Lens Safe
  • Ophthalmologist-tested
Now, here are my thoughts.

The Good Bits:

The mascara wand and its fine bristles :)
Let's start off with the packaging. It's in black and red and is very elegant-looking. The packaging actually shouts, The Devil Wears Prada! The price is amazing, especially since I got it for 30% off. P300+ something. Forgot the exact price but 30% is big enough for a good product like this. It gives a natural lengthening effect on the lashes and doesn't clump at all. Since it has a thick formulation, you won't need to worry about the product weighing down your curled lashes. They're safe! The bristles of the mascara wand are small enough so you can also use it on your lower lashes. I got the waterproof one and it really lasted the whole day! 

The Bad Bits:

Personally, I want a lengthening and volumizing mascara in one and it just lengthened my lashes and didn't volumize. Hence, the natural curl which is definitely a pro; but there are times when I want a dramatic volumized effect and this product does not give it. It has an unpleasant mascara-ish scent but it disappears immediately so no need to worry much.

I love this product. I really do! I might repurchase one again; but I want to try other Maybelline Mascaras too since Maybelline is pretty much known for their mascaras.  I'd be giving this product a rating of 8/10. Not the holy grail of mascaras but definitely one helluva great product!


  1. I love the fact that this mascara gives you that extreme long effect that's why it's one of my favorites...and for it's price, it's already a winner

  2. I think I forgot to mention. Those are my sister's eyes btw. Haha! :D


I would love to know your thoughts!
