The YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll Mascara is the latest mascara offering from Yves Saint Laurent. It comes in the standard but gorgeous YSL gold tube, with pink writing. The plastic wand has short and firm bristles that are evenly places over the skinny wand. One side has slightly longer bristles, while the opposite has shorter bristles to catch the smaller lashes .
The firm plastic wand enables you to really work the wand from base to tip, giving the lashes a good coating of mascara and a nice amount of lift if just one coat.
A second coat gave my lashes a nice separate look, along with lift, length and volume. I couldn't leave to long in between coats thought because I found that once the mascara dried, it was hard to add another coat without creating a 'spider' lash look!
The wand is small enough though so you can reach all the lashes that might be hard to reach. It works great for the shorter lashes in the inner corner, and the bottom lashes.
The colour is super black, meaning you have dark lashes in just on coat. It's really long wearing, and I found it lasted all day without smudging or flaking.
Overall, I'm really impressed with this.
The only reason I was hesitant to buy this because of the stories I've heard about how quick Yves Saint Laurent mascara's dry up. I have had it about a month now and it still hasn't dried out which is a good start for a YSL mascara.
