Stila Convertible Mascara ** A review **

Hey lovelies,

Today I am going to review this Mascara "Stila - Convertible mascara" that I recently purchased.
I came across this mascara at my local winners a few weeks ago and decided to buy it for 2 reasons:
1- I was in desperate need of a new mascara (old one dried out),
2- I was intrigued by the 2 wands.
Plus buying it at winners that day saved me a trip to the mall... :)

This is a discontinued product and can no longer be purchased on Stila's website but I was able to find it online. (Amazon)
I found two sellers on Amazon that had these in stock and sells them for $24.99
Luckily for me, I only paid $12.99

How to use:
The large brush is used for the top lashes and the small one to coat the bottom lashes.

Wiggle the wand at the root of the lashes to separate and coat the lashes at the last line.

Love , love , love....
Simple, practical, and sturdy.. What more can you ask for?
The double wand is a genius idea if you ask me.... I wish Stila would bring it back to the market.
If the large wand doesn't get all the lashes the smaller one will...

MY thoughts:
I love this mascara.... It does wonders for my lashes.
What baffles me about it,  is that it's waterproof (TESTED!!! Went swimming and it stayed in place) but it can be easily removed with a damp cloth.
Strange but I am not complaining ... I often have issues with waterproof mascaras not being able to wash it off completely.
I have a few photos of the Mascara in ACTION.

No mascara.
One coat.
Two coats.

The good and the Bad:

The good:
- Long lasting,
- Waterproof / Smudge-proof,
- Easy to wash off,
- Comes with 2 wands,
- lengthening and defines the lashes.

The bad:
- Discontinued...
Yep, this is all I could come up with.

Overall, This is a wonderful mascara. I have no idea what the original retail price was but I can justify paying $12.99 for this. 
Will I re-purchase?? depends... I will not purchase this on Amazon for $24,99 but If I can find it cheaper I will yes.
Do I recommend?? Absolutely!! 

Thanks for reading,
