Review || YSL False Lash Effect Mascara

YSL Mascara for a False Lash Effect: £23.00
One of my friends works for YSL and she convinced me to try my first ever high-end mascara in September 2011 when I met her, and I can honestly say I have never loved a mascara more than this one. It really does what it says in the title, keeping my lashes looking long and full all day. As a girl who CANNOT apply false lashes and often ends up with them stuck on her forehead, this product is a lifesaver. Also, the one time I did wear false lashes (applied for me by the friend I mentioned above), I could feel/see them all night and felt like I had really hairy eyebrows! Anyone else have that experience? Just me? Moving on.

I've now used 3 tubes of this mascara so I am trying to save it for nights out or days when I am wearing less/no other eye make-up and want to make my eyes stand out more (for day-to-day use I am using Rimmel's Lash Accelerator mascara). I've also tried the 'High Density Black' version of this mascara, which claims to give lashes a more 'intense and glamorous' look but I personally found that to make my lashes a little too clumpy and wet.
I've tried a lot of YSL products but this is definitely my favourite and I can't see a time in the future when I won't re-purchase this mascara.
What's your go-to mascara?


  1. I've always stuck to Dior Show mascara ever since my mum bought my first one for Xmas... many many many years ago - and i've never looked back! I'm not a huge fan of falsies, but definitely love the effect that a voluminous can give. x

    1. Ooh I've never tried that one but I've heard good things about it! I'm sure I'll give it a go at some point. Yeah I'm not a fan of falsies either, mainly because I'm useless at applying them ha but I do love mascaras that make my lashes stand out x

  2. love this mascara!
