An important tool the ESSENTIAL tool in a girl's make up kit.
I discovered this mascara about 15 years ago.
YSL false lash, or faux cils (French)
It. Is. Fabulous.
I've stayed pretty much faithful to it over the years and that is because it is everything I could ever want from a mascara.
- Excellent lash coverage, lengthening and definition.
- Leaves the lashes silky smooth and nourished.
- No clumping.
- No panda eyes as the day wears on.
- Removes easily at night, with no snapped lash casualties.
- No panda eyes the morning after.
- Goes on and on forever like a Duracell bunny.
It's no surprise then that I've sung its praises on the blog. Why would I keep quiet about something so good?
Yes ok, I've strayed a few times over the years, naively thinking there was better out there but I've always returned, feeling a tad guilty for having been seeing other mascaras. But its heart is big and it holds no grudges when its errant lover (me) sheepishly returns. And it wastes not a moment in pouring its black velvety love back onA my lashes.
During the summer I did dally again, but probably for the last time. A charming lady at Gatwick duty free told me about the new YSL mascara that had taken the beauty world by storm. I usually pride myself on my resilience to the hard sell technique, but this sweet lady mentioned "curl". And that was my trigger word, for my lashes are straight. Straight like cows' lashes.
I dropped my salesperson armour and bought one. And my usual YSL faux lash, just in case.
Turns out "just in case" was prudent and my back up plan proved its worth.
Curly left my lashes hard and spikey.
Curly refused to allow a second coat.
And curly didn't curl.
After a few dates with curly, I returned to the faux cils fold, justifying my dalliance to my old faithful mascara with such classics as "but we were in a break", " it didn't mean anything" and "I'd always wanted to know what it felt like to have curly lashes just once".
Like I said, YSL faux cils mascara is forgiving and it got straight back to business, defining and lengthening my lashes, and I can live without all this fancy curly-curly stuff.
Dear reader, maybe you haven't tried YSL false lash mascara, so why not give your eyes the mascara they deserve.
Click on the mascara image and if your lashes can speak they will say "Thank you!".
