I received the Stila Huge Mascara as a freebie from Sephora with my VIP points. This mascara retails for $23 and can be purchased online or in stores, wherever Stila is sold. The website said that this formula prevents clumping of lashes, keeps them from getting crunchy and is long-lasting. Read below to get my opinion after wearing it a few times.
I like that this mascara came in a gold canister. It stands out from my other eye products in my makeup bag which are typically black, silver or grey. And if you have seen any of my videos you know I notoriously drop stuff. This definitely passed the Kari-Drop test. 😉
I mean when is mascara not portable? It is cylinder shaped and slides nicely into a side pocket, makeup bag or purse.
I am a nut for unique, functional mascara spoolies. I LOVE this one! The bristles are different lengths and sizes from top to bottom. This makes it so easy to catch the little eyelashes, and the ones at the outer corner of your eye. I love this spoolie. Definitely one of my favorites. I was very impressed that this does add length and volume without my lashes feeling clumpy or crunchy. Very happy with this Stila.
This is pigment is everything! The website said that it is a “triple pigmented” black formula. It is so black. Nice and dark and gives the definition you would expect if you drop $23 for it.
Just when you thought this was gonna get a nearly perfect score….I thought it was too, until I noticed on my long days I had tons of fallout under my eyes. (Ok, not that much fall out for a $10 mascara, but for $23, long-lasting mascara – too much fall out for my comfort.) After about 5-6 hours you might want to remove the product before it starts flaking off under your eyes.
Overall: 4.4/5 = B+
I think that the black pigment and the spoolie are great. Unfortunately, the fall out makes it not that great of a buy, in my opinion.
