YSL Shocking Mascara

Yves Saint Laurent do some amazing products, if you have followed my blog for a while you will know I am a huge fan of their lipsticks. Another one of their products that gets a big following is their mascaras, so when the new YSL Shocking mascara landed on my desk at work I couldn't wait to try it on. 

The Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils Shocking is leaps ahead of any other mascaras I have tried recently, instantly coating every lash in a rich colour that holds the volume and curl all day long. The brush is twisted, slightly so that it really works your lashes to get the most from them. Bigger volume and longer length. Meaning every lash is captured and curled into place. 

YSL has gone further than just black and brown, they have created 6 shades that will work with whatever eye shadow/liner your rocking that day. 6 shades: N° 1 – Deep Black, N° 2 – Ashy Black, N° 3 – Bronze Black, N° 4 – Sea Black, N° 5 – Cherry Black and N° 6 – Jade Black.

I love the packaging of the mascara, yes it is the expected gold but the signature shocking written along the side is something they might want to think about for other products. It was a hit with me. 

Overall YSL have won me over with their mascara, the only test left for them to pass is how long before the mascara dries out? I hope it lasts longer than the 4 weeks some of their mascaras get. 

£22.50 from YSL counters nationwide.

I love how they are doing different hues of black than bright colours. Let's be honest, what average person look good in bright pink or green eyeshadow? great post!! x

Love love love the new packaging. Wish they'd do the same on some other products. I used YSL mascaras for years until the life on them went down to zilch. I'd get a month and a halfs use before it dried out and started to smell. Hope this one fares better!
