Stila Convertible Mascara Review

Is it terribly weird that while I was testing out Stila Convertible Color Mascara I was thinking of convertibles and the Hoff?


I dunno what it is but convertibles just remind me of that catchy little ditty by David....I hear he's big in Japan.


Stila Convertible color is embracing the crazy tube technology that's taking the mascara world by storm at the moment. Not fibers kids but tubes!

The unique polymer formula encases puny lashes in a tiny smudge-proof, water-proof "tube" that binds each lash and offers longer, defined lashes that can take on the world and the Hoff if worst comes to worst without flaking, smudging, or creating terrorizing raccoon eyes!




I don't claim to know why Stila dubs everything with convertible lately but the Muse likes to think they too were thinking of the Hoff and his hawt car when creating this mascara. The Stila Convertible Mascara is a dual-ended brush that works at offering volume to both top lashes and lower lashes for that no lash left behind feeling (our x-President would be pride I'm sure!).



I generally like the idea of a double ended wand that performs separately to lengthen my top and lower lashes. Considering that each brush is made specifically for separate functions I somehow wish that all my mascaras sported a similar feature as I always have a hell of a hard time getting to those naughty lower lashes without causing a hot mess. The upper lash applicator is a nice size brush that grasps lashes quite well and sweeps them upwards and outwards while the secondary lower lash applicator is thinner in size and has a straight line for snagging those hard to reach lashes.



The mascara isn't particularly wow inspiring. It does volumize and it does offer length but it's nothing too dramatic. I recommend it for anyone that doesn't like the irritating feeling of fiber based mascaras as this is a nice light weight formula that will offer good volume to puny lashes without weighting them down or making them feel "hard". For me personally tube mascaras are probably thee most awesome find considering how much I hate the feeling of fiber mascaras.

This offers plenty of bells and whistles such as being smudge-proof and water resistant while offering definition, length, and volume but I can't help but feel the overall effect wasn't particularly amazing. I'm not too big a fan of a more natural lash look and this is exactly the finished result that Stila Convertible Mascara offers.

All in all quite a nice product but I prefer L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara as it's cheaper and offers more of a dramatic result than this did. It was worth testing out just so I could compare "convertible mascara" to David's popular "Get Into My Car" song. Bless that man.

Tried it?
