Hello there! I had a chance to test and review the new and improved version of the Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara, and let me tell you…I love this stuff. Absolute truth.
First, the details:
According to YSL Beauty, the new formula doesn’t dry out, and can help to create dramatic looking lashes (increase length and volume). It is also formulated to create more care for the lashes with the use of B-5 Pro Vitamin to strengthen and protect the lashes. The brush is made of nylon fibers, ensuring maximum volume and color, and the mascara comes in six colors – High Density Black, Burgundy, Rich Brown, Deep Night, Fascinating Violet, and Extreme Blue.
And now, I have to say, again…I love this stuff. The first thing that drew me to this product was the packaging, because you all know that I’m a sucker for pretty packaging! I received the mascara in High Density Black, and it is true to its name. This mascara glides on so smoothly, and although it did add some length to my lashes, it wasn’t as dramatic as it would be for some, as my eyelashes are really short and super fine.
However, I was still impressed with the application, and had no problems with flaking or sensitivity, which I was thankful for. There’s nothing like having a mascara flake floating around on your contacts! Talk about irritating. So I’m glad that I haven’t had this problem with the Volume Effet mascara. I also love the fact that this mascara is lightly scented, and that it smells rather delightful! No slight chemical scent like you get with most mascaras. I will say that the quality of YSL beauty products has always been consistent in my opinion, and I can absolutely appreciate that.
