Who wouldn’t love to receive the gorgeous box of Yves Saint Laurent goodies.  Three, yes three products for the price of one.  Your purchase with this gift set includes the YSL Luxurious Mascara, ‘Top Secrets’ Instant Moisture glow and makeup remover.

It’s the little girl in the sweetie shop time once again for me as I open my Gold coloured beautiful box of delights.

Product Overview


Product:  Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Effet Faix Cils (Luxurious Mascara for a false lash effect) gift Set.
Shade:  No. 1 Black.
Purchased From:  Debenhams online.
Price I Paid:  £25.50 (approx. $33)
My Rating:  10/10 and more.

I have to say that the YSL Gift Sets are absolutely amazing value for money.  I always make a point of looking our for them.

Basically this set has a full sized Luxurious Mascara and thrown in for free you have a mini 5ml “Top Secrets” Instant Moisturiser Glow (normally sold as 40ml priced approx. at £35) and 8ml Makeup Remover (normally sold as 125ml priced approx. at £22.50).  Pay for the Mascara with added extras, bargain!

The Gorgeous Mascara


I’ve purchased the YSL False Lash Mascara for may years now and it never fails to impress me.  The Unique formula delivers full on glamour with instant results within seconds.

I usually replace this product every three months which is actually the recommended length of time to be thinking of discarding a mascara with health and hygiene in mind.

The mascara wand is perfectly designed to leave your lashes looking shiny, healthy and voluptuous right from the first stroke.

The Luxurious Mascara is every inch the high performing makeup product that you would expect from this exclusive brand.

For more detail about the False Lash Mascara and shade choice please take a peek at my review.

The “Top Secrets” Instant Moisturiser Glow


I have not used this product prior to this purchase, but I can assure you that I will start to now.

As with all YSL products the odour and colour is very subtle and unique, it has a very delicate aroma with just a hint of peach in shade.

I just dotted a little around my face and smoothed it over and very noticeably my skin appeared fresher and more  evenly toned.

A perfect base for your makeup.

The “Top Secrets” Makeup Remover


The YSL makeup remover is gentle yet tough enough to cut through any eye and lip makeup product.

It has the feel of an oil based makeup remover but without leaving any residue behind, but instead clean, soft skin.

My advice would be to apply directly on to a damp cotton wool pad, place the pad onto your closed eye for a few seconds then slide in a downwards movement and wipe away to the outer corner of the eye, repeat as many times as necessary.

My Conclusion


The Yves Saint Laurent Luxurious Mascara Gift Set is absolutely the ultimate present to give and receive. better still treat yourself and buy it just for you.

If you are looking to replace your existing mascara or try something new then you will not be disappointed and just to reiterate, you get two additional mini products for free.

Please leave me your thoughts below and I will look forward to replying.

  1. I have never tried the YSL line of products, but they look great! Do they also have a facial cream that they sell? Do you have any products listed for this? I would really love it if I could buy everything in a sort of one stop shop. I like to stick with the same line. Are there any promotions, or samples you can get? Thanks for your time!

    1. Hi Matt’s Mom,

      Looking very glam and a lady that certainly knows quality when you see it 🙂

      Thanks for leaving your great comments and questions.

      I would ask at any YSL Beauty counter to be given samples for the YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum and if it’s a face cream you prefer then try the Forever Liberator Cream £67 for 50 ml or indeed ask on line, a try before you buy, again I’m sure YSL will be more than happy to help.

      Personally, I do prefer Serums and concentrates, they don’t tend to be as sticky or leave any excess whatsoever but of course it is all down to what your preferences are.

      I can genuinely recommend the Forever Serum, I have sensitivity and can say that I have not experienced any problems, I’ve been using it for years.

      Have fun trying out some samples but if you are struggling to source them then please drop me a line and I will enquire on your behalf.

      Great meeting you and look forward to hearing from you again.

      Enjoy your week.

  2. Hello Juniper59,

    Looks like lots of content. I guess you make your money by social media sharing? How about affiliate links?

    You start out with bullet points; that’s a good idea

    You have college credentials for your business; i often wonder about that!

    You specialize to age 50. Why limit yourself?

    1. Hi David,

      Thank you for your very honest and good feedback 🙂

      I do like to give as much help, guidance and information as I possibly can, I always try to look at my posts from a purchasers perspective or simply just someone wanting to find a look that they feel will deliver on quality, choice selection and aids confidence.

      I decided to start my website by passing on my wealth of knowledge, training and years of expertise. For me, the importance of helping others to look at their skincare needs, makeup choices and to gain trust has to come before financial gain. Having said that, I do intend to add ‘links’ when I find the right Affiliates that are accessible for all, reliable and trustworthy but most of all, they have to offer great customer service.

      Thank you for recognising that I do have “college credentials”, again, it’s all about passing on my area of expertise.

      Good question, re “limiting myself to 50 plus”, it goes without saying, that I’m here to help all age groups but in my opinion and of course being a lady in my Fifties, speaking from my own experience, middle age can leave you feeling somewhat invisible with so many changes both physical and emotional to cope with, not knowing how to make the most of what we have with the fear of looking foolish or trying to look too young. I want to promote, that by making the right choices regarding skincare and makeup, we can look amazing and feel confident, hence my moto “Stand out at 50” and “don’t blend in”.

      Lovely to meet you David and really appreciate all your comments and concerns 🙂

      Enjoy your week.

      All the best

  3. Hi June,

    These products look amazing. I have tried so many different beauty products in the past and either they make my skin too oily or too dry. Is there a specific skin type that would get the best out of this product?

    My skin can be pretty sensitive and a lot of the products that say they are great with sensitive skin are missing a lot of the active ingredients that can provide a result. Are these okay to use on sensitive skin?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Nichole,

      A pleasure to meet you and I have to say that you look far too glamorous 🙂

      You are most definitely someone with great taste and know what you are looking for.

      Thank you for taking a look at my review and leaving all the positive comments, really do appreciate.

      Any Skin type is ok for the YSL Mascara plus Instant Moisture Glow along with Makeup remover, there is nothing oily about any of these products or in danger of leaving any residue on the skin what so ever.

      I have been using these product for years and also have sensitivity especially around my eye area, I can hand on heart say that I have not experience any problems what so ever, I have frequently recommended these products to my clients, they loved them.

      I have also used them on make overs, on all ages and skin types and have never encountered a reaction, that is not to say that someone may have reacted to these products but most definitely not to my knowledge.

      Please let me know how you get on, I would love to hear, enjoy having fun with these products.

      Have a Fab weekend.

      All the best

  4. I just want to take the time to thank you for writing this article. I’m a guy so of course I don’t know anything about make up. My girlfriend, however, is very much into make up and I was trying to figure out what to get her.

    At first I was thinking make up is make up and it didn’t matter what kind or brand I got her. A little voice in my told me I better research this so I did and I’m glad I found this article or I would have made some really dumb mistakes. lol.

    1. Hi Amazon,

      Your comment has made my day, thank you 🙂

      What a caring and thoughtful guy you are, I cannot believe that you have not only researched makeup for your girlfriend but have also taken the trouble to leave all your great positive feedback.

      I couldn’t imagine someone like you could possibly make as you say “dumb” mistakes.

      You cannot go wrong the YSL Luxurious Mascara Gift Set for your special lady, it has everything in one package, gorgeous Mascara, Makeup Remover that is very gently yet gets to grips with removing all layers of eye makeup including the rest of the face and a bonus piece in the Instant Moisture Glow, your girlfriend will be blown away by just how smooth it makes the skin before makeup application.

      You will definitely earn lots of bonus points 🙂

      It’s a pleasure to meet you and have fun buying those pressies.

      Enjoy the rest of the week and have a fab weekend.

      All the best

  5. Hello June,
    This is a very good review on YSL products.l never use mascara myself as I am no good at application and my lashes are dark so thankfully I can get away without using any mascara.
    I would be very interested in buying the makeup remover as I do wear eyeshadow and lipstick most days so this would be a very good product for me

    1. Hi,

      I am very envious of your dark lashes, how wonderful not to need Mascara but could you imagine how incredible they will look with just one coat of Mascara, talk about Film Star look 🙂

      You will find the makeup remover very kind and gentle with very little effort required to do the task in hand.

      It’s incredible value for money and will last some time especially with not having to remove Mascara.

      Lovely to meet you and thank you for all the great and amazing comments, pleased to know that I have helped you to make a potential purchase in the YSL Makeup remover, you will not be disappointed.

      Have a fun weekend and rest of the week.

      Best wishes

      June

  6. Hi, I liked the interaction between the pictures and the description. I would like to specifically relate to the fact that the odor is indeed gentle and being sensitive to odors myself this is a product i would definitely consider buying. Thanks for this wonderful review of Yves Saint Laurent
    Cheers, Orion

    1. Hi Orion,

      Wonderful comments and praise indeed from such a beautiful lady, thank you 🙂

      You certainly look as though you know a thing or two about style and good taste.

      I’m really pleased that I have helped you in looking further into making a purchase of either the Gift Set or products within.

      I completely agree, the odour is just as important as the delivery of the product application, especially when the product sits right under your nose.

      Fantastic to meet you and you can keep those lovely comments coming all day 🙂

      I hope that you have a great weekend.

      Wishing you all the best

      June

  7. I am not exactly familiar with the whole mascara thing but I can tell you are very passionate about what your write and make excellent recommendations.

    1. Hi again Elan,

      You have been busy looking through my reviews, I am flattered and honoured, thank you 🙂

      Are you interested in any of the YSL products mentioned within my review for a gift idea?

      If the answere is Yes! Then I can definitely say that this Gift Set is Absolutely Gorgeous for that special someone in your life 🙂

      I really do appreciate your great comments once again and as for the “Mascara Thing” my Husband would not understand either, it’s a brilliant product for enhancing the lashes especially the YSL False Lash Mascara in Noir Radical.

      Lovely to meet you Elan and continue to have a great week.

  8. This website has a very good idea behind
    It and I think it can achieve great success. Women
    Always feel the pressure of having to choose from so many different products that are out there in the market and it’s good to have someone who can help them and give them their opinion about the different products. It’s a very good site!

    1. Hi Mia,

      A beautiful name for a very stylish and glamorous young lady 🙂

      Thank you for all your lovely feedback and flattering comments.

      I completely agree, we are bombarded by so many products out there on the market and it’s difficult to make a decision whilst being blinded by science or a very clever advertising strategies.

      I’m here to help make a clear purchase choice based on my use of the product, honest opinion, expertise and training, overjoyed that my intention has come across to those in need of guidance and help at a certain age when we’ve lost our confidence or full of self doubt.

      It has been a pleasure to meet you and I hope that I hear from you again.

      All the best

      June
