This is YSL’s bestselling mascara and the packaging is gorgeous. It comes in shiny dual gold toned box and the casing is metal, gold, shiny and slim line making this mascara the perfect shape to slot into your handbag. The embossed YSL brand name over the lid and tube makes this mascara look and feel expensive. I love the sleek, simplistic design of this mascara which is to the point and isn’t fussy.
This mascara is available in a broad range of colours including:
– High Density Black
– Extreme Blue
– Rich Brown
– Deep Night
– Fascinating Violet
This large variety in colour means there is something for everyone whether you want to go with your standard black like me or be a little more adventurous.
As for the wand..I love it as I’m not a huge fan of plastic applicators and this is far from that. The distribution of the product is also great as you don’t have to worry about wiping off any excess product before application. This is always a plus for me as this isn’t something you should have to do with a mascara and it can be messy!
The staying power of this mascara is good that I have found it a little hard to get off at the end of the day (and this isn’t a waterproof one). I have sensitive skin and my eye area does get sore very quickly when removing my makeup if I’m not careful so my extra caution probably plays a part in this too.
I love that this mascara doesn’t make my lashes clump together as much as others I have tried, the colour is very black and it definitely adds volume! Even with just one rushed coat you can definitely see a difference:
*Note – These pictures are taken without any other eye makeup or the lashes being curled.
This mascara is available at many places and is priced at £23.50 at Boots and YSL Beauty.

TIP: For the best results, apply your mascara by start at the inner eye, moving up the lashes root to tip whilst wiggling the wand and pushing downwards with your eyes onto the wand. Repeat this process right across the eye to the outer corner.
