I’m back with another installment of Stealing the Spotlight. And, of course, it’s a product from Stila. I swear, I do use other brands (but what can I say? Stila makes awesome stuff!).
I made a quick stop at Ulta last week to pick up my beloved smudge stick (yes, from Stila). While I was there, I realized that I was almost out of mascara and I grabbed the two-step Voluminous Superstar from L’Oreal’s line (it will be making its way to the blog soon). Coincidentally, as I was at the counter paying for my purchases, I was gifted a travel size of Stila’s HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara to try.
Normally, I avoid expensive mascara. I think the drugstore brands work quite well, often better than their more pricey companions. You may recall that I’ve posted before about L’Oreal’s mascara line and I have been quite impressed with its quality and price.
Since I was gifted this little travel size mascara, I had to test it out. Upon first inspection, I thought the brush looked slightly thick and clumpy. But like all of Stila’s products, I (and my lashes) ended up loving it. I didn’t notice a huge improvement in the length of my lashes, but I saw a drastic difference in the volume. The thicker brush made my lashes appear fuller — and made for easy application of even the smallest little lash. One or two coats should do the trick, or else the mascara will make your lashes clumpy. In terms of all-day wear, don’t worry, this product will stay on for as long as you need with no flaking or fading.
The verdict? Would I buy a full-sized version of this mascara for $23? Probably.
