Old Blue Eyes

Hey Sand Stars

A while back I began a series of Youtube videos with hair and beauty tips/tutorials, along with me playing some of my favourite pieces. If I’m brutally honest I just got really bored of the whole thing :/ Perhaps one day I’ll pick up Notes From LittlePianoDiva again! Anyway, I digress; one of the products I used on the channel was in the YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in electric blue (40 L 100). I’ve been using the product continuously since then and thought I’d re-review the mascara on here.

Firstly, the mascara has the most amazing, rich florally smell which tells me of the nourishing oils that are used (YSL is a luxe beauty brand after all, in relation to the Saint Laurent brand). The mascara glides on easily, however you will only see the colour subtly. I love the fact that the electric blue is quite demure, because you can wear it with more outfits than if it was more overly-pronounced on your eyelashes.

The mascara wasn’t as cake-y as my other mascaras and, best of all, it lasted all day without irritating my sensitive eyes. It does give that faux-eyelash effect as it promises; I suggest wriggling the wand at the base of your eyelashes and glide the brush up gently to create the volume.
