BEST. MASCARA. EVER.
I’ve used a good handful of high end mascaras, and while the results have almost always been above average, (except for Dior Show… I don’t get the hype about this mascara. It’s crap!) it’s kind of a pain to have to fork over so much dough for something that runs out so quickly.
I began using drugstore mascaras, which were working out great for me, until a friend suggested I try Yves Saint Laurent’s Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara. She raved about it, swearing that her lashes looked like falsies with this magic wand, so I decided to give it a try.
Now, at $30, this is one pricey mascara… But after trying it for myself, I can say with every confidence that it’s well worth every penny!!! For one thing, the very first swipe gave my lashes the biggest pick-me-up they’ve ever had; they appeared twice as thick instantly. So I gave it another swipe, and this time they grew even more! Indeed, it looked as if I’d added 2 more rows of lashes in just two waves of a wand. So, length? check. Volume? double-check. But it gets better…
The formula in YSL’s Faux Cils mascara is unlike any other: You’ll first notice it smells like a skincare product, and it’s because it has conditioning elements that prevent your lashes from becoming rock hard like most other mascaras do. I can touch my lashes after the mascara has dried, and they’re still soft and flexible!
Usually when I try a mascara I’m happy with, there’s always the, “I like it a lot but…” statement, but with the Faux Cils mascara, I can’t think of one con among the many pro’s. If you don’t want to spend that kind of cash on a mascara, at least give it a shot once and experience it for yourself!
