YSL Volume Effect Mascara

This is the volume effect mascara by YSL cosmetics, which is also known as the ‘luxurious mascara for a false lash effect’. It comes in a gorgeous ‘off’ copper gold/ light rose gold tube which feels and looks very luxurious. This is in a way my first higher-end mascara (when you compare brands) that I have ever brought, therefore, I have to admit my hopes were quite high when thinking about the potential quality of this mascara and what it should be like.

The formula to this mascara is actually quite thick – but that doesn’t mean that this mascara is difficult to apply, as it coats onto the lashes smoothly and precise with it not drying instantly either and then becoming difficult to layer and apply.

For me, this mascara gives lashes length, volume and thickness, with then also a slight pretty curl. I wouldn’t say that when using this mascara you need to apply additional layers either, as with this, it’s more about combing through your lashes with the mascara wand to ensure the formula is applied even and all of your lashes are following the same shape and direction. When using this mascara I would also say that having plenty of time is key, as you cannot successfully rush the application of this mascara.

    This packaging is an A+ it itself for me. You look fabulous with it on and it definitely defines your lashes! I’ll have to give this a try soon too. (You’re gonna put me into bankruptcy with all your fabulous suggestions!!)

      Isn’t it! I love the packaging too, it’s so pretty! These were the first few YSL products I’ve ever tried before but now you’ve mentioned the lipsticks I think I better invest in some of those too – (you know for the benefit of my blog of course ???) haha sorry!!.. but just think when your bank accounts empty you’ll look absolutely stunning in all of your fancy new make-up! xx
