YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara - a deadly high end mascara!

Mascaras, they're my favourite things to blog about month after month and in my 7 plus years of writing about them, I've only ever had a handful of high end ones that have really knocked my socks off.  See I'm a budget mascara lover and have found some truly amazing ones over the years.  Amazing enough to stop me from being tempted to shell out the big bucks, but sometimes... Sometimes the stars align and I find an absolute gem that sweeps me off my feet and makes me want to buy a backup even after only using it for a couple of weeks!  The very long named YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara was a gift from the YSL team before Christmas and I found it when doing a clear out a few weeks ago.


Now, I've been telling everyone on social media that it's the Faux Cils mascara but this is a different variation.  As far as I can understand, the regular Faux Cils mascara has a black logo on the front of the tube whereas this one has a gold and silver one, so if you're thinking about getting it, make sure you get this one!  I've not tried the original Faux Cils so I don't know if it's any good.  This one however, speaks for itself.  Lookit.


Are you even able?  The answer is no.  No I am not able.  That's with one coat and it's literally everything I love about a mascara.  The formula has four sensuous oils in it and sure who doesn't want sensuous lashes of a Monday?  It doesn't feel crispy or heavy on the lashes and coats them easily.  It gives lift, volume, definition, separation and it's been my go to mascara of choice and will be until it dries out.  It doesn't smudge or flake on me and comes off easily with a micellar water or cleanser.


As I'm 'scustin, I've had the need to apply a second coat when heading out after work and can confirm that the second coat goes on very easily, a good ten hours after applying the first coat!

Now, the price.  It's €31.20 on Feel Unique (affiliate link) or €32.50 on Debenhams (affiliate link).  I know, that's fierce spendy, but I honestly think it's worth the price.  I'll 100% be repurchasing it when I use this up and remember, keep an eye on the logo so you get this one and not the original!
