Mascara Find: Maybelline Stiletto

It was a day of Paraben Free discovery for me. Saw the new Maybelline Stiletto mascara hanging on a display at Walgreens. Around $8, so a bit pricey for drugstore mascara, but still a big surprise. Could Maybelline finally be seeing the Paraben Free light?

  1. Wow! I just saw the commercial for it and decided to Google the ingredients, saw your site and read your article on it. I will try it now! I wasn't going to if it had parabens.

  2. Just wanted to pass along some info, that some variants of the Stiletto mascaras do indeed contain parabens sadly. For example, the Waterproof - Brownish Black is loaded with parabens :(
