YSL MascaraJust like I promised, I bring to your attention the mascara that became my personal number 1 choice. I was using the regular DiorShow for a very long time, until once at the shooting of a movie episode the makeup artist used the mascara that made me go “wow!!!” when I glanced in the mirror. This is when our love story began. I’ve tracked the make-up lady down to find out what she had used. Well, you guessed it. It was Yves Saint Laurent Mascara for a False Lash Effect (Faux Cils). I’m hooked ever since.
The YSL mascara makes your eyelashes look perfect - long, curly, black eyelashes with lots of volume. It smells nothing like what mascaras normally do, but it has a vague scent to it that you will be able to feel when you wear it. I love that smell.

Faux Cils mascara comes in a copper and gold tube that looks luxurious and feels substantial.
Its brush is straight with a tapered end to catch the corner eyelashes. Its bristles are quite densely packed which helps to minimize clumping yet coat each lash.

Quick tip! After 3-4 weeks of use the brush might get clumpy. You will bring it back to life if you put 2-3 drops of water on it. Or if you are more organized than me, clean the brush with a tissue every 2 weeks.

What the ad says:

“An intense look in a single stroke. Its secret: the triple-film complex. A coating film for intensity, a conditioning film for curve, a fixing film for long-lasting effectiveness. Even the brush applicator combines nylon fibers of varying diameters for volume enhancement as never before.”

What girls say:

“At first when I found what the price of the mascara was, I thought there was no way I was spending that sort of money on a mascara, but to date its worked out to be the best mascara I have ever purchased.”

“I actually first spotted this mascara adorning the lashes of a friend. Adorning is the word, because her lashes looked gorgeous… In fact I was immediately reminded of Vivien Leigh as Scarlet! This gives fluttery, soft looking velvety lashes, and never seems to look harsh however how much is piled on. That rather awful dry and spidery look seems to be avoided altogether. The case is gorgeous and the smell of the mascara is lovely!”

“One of my favorite things about this mascara has to be the brush. For me, having a great brush is 80% of the way, and this brush had it! With thick long bristles, it allowed you to apply it evenly across your lashes separating them as you go! The mascara goes on fantastically, it separates and volumizes amazingly, and for people like me who are mascara mad, you can apply as many coats as you want, without it become clumpy, and all stuck together.”

“I have been using this product for over a year now. The claims are true: no other mascara can give stronger, longer and thicker eyelashes than this.
I usually apply the product on the tip of the eyelashes first and I never apply more than 2 coats. It is important, in my opinion, to apply the second coat straight away without waiting it to dry first. The result is long lasting thanks to a fixing film which is combined with waxes and which forms an impermeable, elastic veil that helps the mascara adhere to the lashes without a stiff appearance.”

“Once you have used this brilliant mascara, I severely doubt that you will ever use anything else on your lashes!”
