When I heard from Influenster that I was getting their Yves Saint Laurent VIP box I was super excited! I've used Yves Saint Laurent products for years off and on and they make some of my favorite things. I received a tube of Yves Saint Laurent's Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils to review. I couldn't wait to try this product! It had been about a year since I last used YSl mascara so I was eager to check out this *new* Lash care Formula.
It arrived in a little black block with the YSL logo emblazoned on the side. Inside the box was an advertising card with the details of the product. Nestled in a bed of jet black tissue paper was the shiny gold box that contained the mascara. This tube is a pretty little thing! It's one of the few mascaras that I wouldn't mind just laying on my dresser instead of hiding it in my makeup drawer. I immediately had to try this stuff!
I applied 2 coats to my clean lashes. The wand held enough product to get a nice application without being too wet and heavy on the lashes. The information card had called it a 'remastered formula' and this is definitely the best YSL mascara I have ever used! It made my lashes appear longer without clumping and it didn't give me the dreaded 'spider lashes'. I've worn it all day, several times and it never flaked or smudged. I have been using Benefit's 'They're Real" for the last few months but am definitely switching to this mascara!
If interested in trying this mascara you can purchase it HERE on Amazon for about $30 a tube. I really think you'll like it....let me know what you think!
Once again, this item was sent to me by a influenster in exchange for my honest review.
