Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils – Luxurious Mascara For a False Lash Effect
The photo above does show this product in Number 2 Rich Brown, I tend to use Number 1 High Density Black choice for day wear
I’m writing my review based on the colour choice of Noir Radical, this is amazing for evening, special occasion or if you want to add more glamour.
Other Shades you might like to try:
Number 3 Extreme Blue – a great summer colour
Number 4 Fascinating Violet – a dramatic evening colour
I have just purchased a new one in Noir Radical, (Black), and Love the deep glamorous look 🙂
The Unique Packaging
All YSL packaging has a luxurious and glamorous look and feel to it, they certainly draw my attention. Unmistakeably YSL with it’s signature gold colour, with the YSL logo. Each cylinder can be identified by it’s own unique colour code, great if you are in a hurry and you have multiple examples of the same product, I have no doubt which one is which. The product looks very sleek and classy and they fit into any handbag or purse quite easily.
The Application Wand
The applicator brush, or wand as I would call it, has the perfect circumference and length to give the right amount of mascara without feeling too large to work with. It doesn’t feel intrusive around the eye area. The wand is easy to work with, delivers a smooth gloss finish and without any of the ‘clumping’ often experienced with inferior products. All this can be achieved with one simple application.
The Mascara Itself
The thing I love the most about this product is that it really does deliver the high impact and look of having longer eye lashes right from the word go. The colour has depth, intensity, and a glossy finish with a silky look. I have never experienced any problems with lumps, the consistency is ‘spot on’.
When you pull the wand out from the cylinder you will notice that the product cleverly removes any excess mascara giving you exactly the right amount needed for each application.
Quality and Value for Money
Outstanding quality. I have sensitive eyes, but I have had no ill effect from regular use in over 15 years.
YSL False Lash Mascara should last up to three months, mine do and that’s with daily use!
A useful tip of mine is to wash the mascara wand with facial cleanser then rinse in clean warm water, if it looks as though it is drying out. This really does help to keep the applicator fresh and functional.
As with all mascaras you must make sure that after use you replace the wand and ensure it is tightly closed to prevent air getting to it.
I would strongly recommend that you invest in a good quality Mascara, you most definitely get your money’s worth, instant results, YSL for me a brand that I trust and I have confidence that it will not irritate my eyes.
My Professional Tip
When applying mascara, look down and stroke inside first, a great way to cover over any eyeshadow or eyeliner left on the lashes, great if like me you have a tall partner 🙂
Also take your time when adding extra coats, keep the strokes long and sweep upwards.
