Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara and FOTD

My beloved Rimmel "Day 2 Night" mascara ran out a few weeks ago and I couldn't find it anywhere here so when I saw the Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara on sale for just $5.00, I snapped it up. To be honest, I didn't have huge hopes for this as I have a hit and miss relationship with drugstore mascaras but this was a pleasant surprise.

The bristles are very firm, yet there isn't too much product deposited on the brush. It also manages to coat my eyelashes without making them look too clumpy. Once on, my eyelashes don't feel hard and crunchy as can happen with other mascaras.

My apologies for the deer in headlights look but it really gives me the false lash effect non?

I was also trying out a sample of the MAC Pro Longwear foundation here but I'm still on the fence about it. It just looks a little "ashy" to me when compared to my other MAC foundations. What do you think? (Click the pictures to make them larger)
