YSL Faux Cils Mascara

Hey everyone! I love trying new mascaras out and wanted to review a mascara I've tried from a previous Topbox. The YSL Faux Cils mascara was featured back in February's Topbox. I've always wanted to try this mascara because I've heard such good things about it but the price tag always made me rethink it.

I usually buy drugstore mascaras so it was nice to try a high end mascara and see if paying a higher price makes a difference. I liked the applicator of the YSL Faux Cils mascara, it's a regular bristle applicator which made it easy apply mascara on the corner of my eyes. Also the formula was really nice, it stayed on all day and didn't transfer at all. If you like volumizing mascaras you'll love this. It made my lashes look incredible. It made my lashes look really nice and thick without making them look clumpy. I hate when mascaras are too thick and make my lashes look clumpy, but this mascara did neither. If you prefer mascaras that give you mostly length, I don't think this mascara is for you.

The one negative I found with this mascara was that it didn't hold the curl to my lashes all day. I like my mascara to hold the entire day, from 7 am to 9 pm because sometimes I'm at school all day. With the YSL Faul Cils my lashes weren't as curled at the end of the day. This made them look less volumizing than when I first applied the product. I think an easy fix to this problem is curling your eyelashes before applying the mascara. Because I don't curl my eyelashes I haven't been able to test this theory out yet.

Overall, I did like this mascara, it made my lashes look nice with no clumping. If I do repurchase this in the future I'll definitely curl my eyelashes before hand. 

Hope this helped some of you interested in trying out the YSL Faux Cils mascara!

Have a great day!
