Mascara is just one of those items that really completes a look. Without a little eye makeup I for one hardly look awake. I have long and straight eyelashes so I’m always on the hunt for a good black mascara that will hold a curl. It’s just one of those items I love buying, I think I seriously have an addiction. Thinking about my collection right now I probably have around 5 mascaras in the go. That’s not crazy right?
As a blogger finding nicely packaged products is always a bonus as they look great in instagram photos. This YSL mascara ticks all the boxes. It’s pretty, it’s as black as my soul and it holds a curl. This is the only product I’ve ever tried from YSL and to be honest they have done a fab job. They are a higher end brand but I don’t mind spending lots of money for products that I know work. YSL is available in lots of department stores and online but I actually managed to pick this up in TK Maxx for such a discounted price. I can’t remember exactly how much I paid for this but it was around the £20 which is still pricey but in the world of mascaras it is probably mid range. Crazy, I know!!
The mascara it’s self works so well. It stays on all day and doesn’t flake everywhere either. This is a serious pet peeve when it comes to mascaras. My usual routine with this mascara is to curl my eyelashes and than apply one maybe two coats depending on how I’m feeling. It doesn’t clump you lashes together so you can put quite a few coats on if you want to. I can’t tell if this mascara is one of those fibre ones or whether it’s just a little stringy. I have to say I’m usually not a big fan of fibre brushes on mascara I tend to prefer plastic ones but this one works well. It is quite slim which means that I can properly get into all of the nooks and crannies. You can also coat your bottom lashes too with this same mascara and not smear black everywhere!
I love how this mascara is so easy to wash off. It removes with just a little water and cleanser. I never ever buy waterproof mascara I get too angry trying the remove it!! Please tell me I’m not the only one haha!
