YvesSaintLaurent Mascara - The Holy Trinity

Hey Ladies,

I hope you are all well. As some of you may know, I have quite the obsession with YSL. I'm not sure if it's the beautiful collections, or the allure of the shiny gold packaging, but it's love. I purchased my first YSL mascara about 18 months ago, and instantly it stole my heart. It has become a not so subtle addiction. Today I thought I would share with you my 3 favourite mascaras, my holy trinity, that in my opinion, every girl should own at least one of...

So the three beauties I have chosen are the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils, the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll, and the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking. All three of these mascara's are absolute perfection for different reasons. There is just something about the YSL mascaras that make my heart skip a beat. Everything about these scream pure luxury, the packaging, the scent and the look they give to frame the eyes.

The first of the three is the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils. This I purchased in a set with a lovely YSL eyemakeup remover. First up the pigmentation of this mascara is fantastic, it's deep, dark, rich black coats every single lash perfectly. The clump free formula insures that coat after coat, your lashes stay soft and light to the touch and don't feel at all spindly or weighed down. It has exceptional wear time, doesn't flake and really gives you that much lusted after false lash effect that we all crave! You really cant go wrong with this!

Next up is the newest addition to the YSL mascara family, 'Babydoll'. I am in love with this mascara, I'm getting excited even typing about it. It differs from the other two with one major difference and that is the wand. The wand spreads the lashes incredibly wide, it redefines the lashes one by one from the tiniest lashes to your best ones this just perfects them. it volumises and lengthens all in one, I honestly think that this has become top of my list of favourites, it's just stunning! Wear time of this is fantastic, no clumping or flakes. It's a definite winner in my eyes.

 Last but not least is YSL's Shocking. This is a cult favourite in the beauty community. One rumour I wanted to put to rest is that this particular mascara dries out rather quickly.Not at all, a common mistake that people make is not ensuring that tube is properly closed after use. Once you make sure its closed properly you will get many months of life out of this tube of joy. The mascara itself is what I like to call a 'POW' mascara. Once you have a few coats of this mascara on, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. The lashes become so voluminous it can be hard to believe that they are your own. It really is just a high impact mascara. If you purchase this I can promise you will not be disappointed, it really is one of the best mascara's on the market for beauty addicts at the moment!
