Maybelline Lash Stylist discontinued.. Stiletto is replacing it?

Updated Note: (Jan 02,2010) Take a look at this post: Maybelline Lash Stylist Reincarnated in Cat Form – Hypercurl. This mascara is only available in Malaysia for some reason. I do see Lash Stylist on Ebay: Maybelline Lash Stylist

Due to the popularity of this post, I have revised it with links to updates on new information regarding Maybelline Lash Stylist Mascara. Please read user comments below for more updated information.

Bad Review for Maybelline Lash Stiletto

Other Comb Wand Mascaras

Looked everywhere at Target for my “BFF in a tube”, Lash Stylist by Maybelline. Nowhere to be found. I called my mother immediately, who lives about 30 miles away in another town, and I asked her to go to her nearst drug store and search for my trusty mascara and to buy at least two tubes. “Nope”, she said when she called me back, “They don’t have it, and I checked Target and Longs.” I went online and had a virtual fit. I found the mascara on beauty.com, and I noticed it was on sale. Unfortunately, I can’t find the mascara online right now. I haven’t checked ebay.. =(

So I ordered two tubes along with a bunch of really expensive Frederik Fekkai hair stuff, and ripped open the package to make sure my “BFF in a tube” arrived safely. Yup.. it was fine, and I had not used it for about a month since I could not find it anywhere.. and I noticed that.. nothing, nothing, nothing compares to it. I couldn’t believe how much better my lashes looked, and they even looked a lot darker. I was so happy, yet scared that my little friend in a tube is going to go bye-bye.

Sure enough, I saw the new Maybelline Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara (Say that 10 times fast) and I am angered that my little lovely Lash Stylist is going to bid me one last farewell.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto

Well, there it is. Here is the description:

The only mascara that does for lashes what stilettos do for legs.

-The 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 and Ophthalmologist tested

Ok.. so nothing special here. The brush is red, which is hot, but not making ME hot.. so I wrote a letter to our friends at Maybelline about how pissed I am. hahha.. well, I was nice, don’t worry. I’ll let you know what happens.

UPDATE: I have tried and approve of Lancome’s Fatale mascara. It gives similar results than that of Lash Stylist, the only thing I don’t like about it is the glossy finish and the comb does not do a very good job of distributing the product evenly. As far as the end result goes.. it’s almost the same. Fatale is expensive, but I found a tube on ebay a little cheaper than drug store prices. If you have found anything similar to Lash Stylist, let me know and I can post it here.

  1. Hi ladies.. just a quick update on a product that I found! IT cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Mascara has really topped my list of must-try mascaras. The “brush” is really just a stick with ridges in it, but it actually lines your upper waterline as you apply. It’s so great! It is NOT a replacement for Lash Stylist, but is a different enough that I thought I’d mention it. Let me know if you’ve tried it!

  2. ive tried virtually every maybelline mascara since lash stylist got discontinued, and a ton others of different brands.

    the only thing i’ve accomplished is spending hundreds of dollars, and having a drawer full of mascaras i will never use. i’m trying the rimmel max lash one people mentioned. in the mean time, i’ll be spending upwards of $14 a tube to buy it LS on ebay..

  3. Hi there!
    As a beauty consellor, I used Lancôme Fatale mascara in replacement of Lash Stylist. I Really Loved it but they discontinued it too! So now I’m using the L’oréal Telescopic and I can tell that it gives about the same result. Not AS MUCH as Lash Stylist did but very alike. Same kind of brush wich gives long separated eyelashes. So you should try it guys!

  4. I too was truly upset that I couldn’t find my bff mascarra Lash Stylist..so far I’ve used the comb with other mascarras but its not the same The closest one I found that works closest to the same results as Lash Stylist is: Rimmel’s Lash Accelerator plus it has a grow lash complex formula to promote strong lashes..im gonna also try to find my long lost bff on ebay..wish me luck

  5. guess what i found?!! maybelline define-a-lash volume mascara is just like lash stylist but only its a brush, not the comb…same exact stylist only a full brush. i totally love it, i missed lash stylist as you all did and tried everything from using different mascaras with the stylist to using all sorts of brushes. the mascara gods were with me today as i found the answer to all of my eyelash prayers! i hope you all run out to buy it today, you will not be sorry :)
