YSL Volume Effect Mascara

If you are a member of Influenster then you know the excitement of seeing one of it's boxes sitting at your doorstep. I already knew what was waiting inside but knowing it made it that much better.
I have never had the pleasure of trying YSL before but believe me, I have eyed it up on many occasions. I'm becoming somewhat of a Francophile and so this mascara was high on my list of things to try.
So is it weird that the first thing I do when I open a tube of mascara is give it a good whiff? I have opened some where the chemical smell burns my nose, and it also can tell you if the product is old and rancid. YSL's mascara smelled like a beautiful bottle of French perfume. The brush is thick and fluffy, the exact type that I love. I have long lashes already so what I look for in a mascara is building up volume without clumping.
YSL's mascara left no clumps and my lashes did not stick together. Perfect! Here are a few pics of me wearing it below. Please don't mind my dumb expression, I am not a huge fan of selfies honestly.
I think I may have found my 'holy grail' mascara in YSL. And I look forward to trying other products.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes Click here to view the products info from Influenster.

Wonka Randoms Review!

Have you ever heard of Smiley360? It's a great site that allows bloggers like me the opportunity to review products at no cost. You don't have to be a blogger, anyone can do it! It took awhile for me to get a mission, about 6 months, so don't be discouraged if you aren't chosen right away. I just accepted my second mission today, which is an even better one! I'll be reviewing the sleep number bed system in store, and in return receive a 89.00 sleep number pillow as compensation!
Today I am reviewing the all new Wonka's Randoms! Randoms gets it's name from the premise of getting a bag full of random treats. They are gummy candies with 70 different shapes, 7 fruit flavors, and 3 different textures. There are endless possibilities. Some are just regular gummy candies while others have a squishy filling, reminiscent of Gushers. My favorite flavors were the lemons and orange, but they also have not so tradition raspberry! Tony loved the raspberry flavored kinds. I think these would be so great for kids because they can look through the bag and never find the same kind of candy.
