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.
