I'm extremely excited to do another beauty product review for Influenster this month! If you recall, last month I was asked to try and review Dove Dry Spray. This month I'm feeling a lot more glamorous trying out the new YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara.
I've never tried YSL Mascara before, but have always heard great things. When I got the news that I was selected to test YSL's "anniversary edition" of their False Lash Mascara I was beyond excited (just ask muffin...he thought I was insane for getting so jazzed up over mascara). I wish I took some great photos of the gorgeous packaging, but let's all get real here...I was like a kid on Christmas morning ripping into a gift. The box was destroyed by my excitement to get to the product. I can tell you this--it was gorgeous. YSL has the whole packaging design thing down pat!
Now down to the nitty gritty of the Mascara. The good: IT WORKS. It made my lashes long and gorgeous. YSL adds B5 vitamins to the formula so it goes on smooth, but apparently also helps your lashes grow (and I'm all about that!). It lasts all day without rubbing off. Some mascaras tend to rub off and give me an even darker under eye...well not the YSL mascara! It withstood my crying. Now THAT is an accomplishment. The bad: there isn't any. My only complaint (which is the same complaint I had with the Dove Dry Spray) has to do with fragrance. YSL adds fragrance into the mascara. It smells lovely, but can sometimes make me feel a little sensitive.
All in all it is an amazing product that I plan to keep using!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.
