ysl effet faux cils waterproof

YSL Mascara Effet Faux Cils WaterProof in #01 Charcoal Black: £23*

I'm a long-term fan of YSL mascaras. The most famous to my knowledge is the Effet Faux Cils original, so I was really intrigued to see how the waterproof version would match up against it. The wand seems to be a lot thinner than the original version which doesn't really make sense to me. I personally use my regular mascara first (Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash!) and then this over the top just to make sure I have the effect I want, and the waterproof mascara holds it in place and just makes it look a million times better. I find that if I use a waterproof mascara on its own, the lashes look gloopy and weird. Even though I've used this on its own I still prefer to partner it with a regular mascara underneath to make the makeup removal less harsh too as waterproof formulas are notoriously hard to get off!

I would 100% repurchase this, and definitely recommend it. Please bear in mind I'm pretty lucky with my lashes in the sense that they're long and thick, but I always need help with holding a curl so if you're the same then this is for you! Have you ever tried this? What's your favourite mascara, regular or waterproof?

  2. As much as I do like your blog, it's quite disappointing to keep seeing the [*] next to all your recent posts/purchases. :/

  3. Have you done a twiggy inspired makeup eye here? If so maybe you could you perhaps do a post on it?! Your makeup looks ace that's all. Like you've done a subtle eyeliner line in your socket.

    I hope I'm not seeing things else I'm going to look like a psycho after this comment!

    Great post anyway thank you!

  4. Getting lashes to hold their curl is literally the bane of my life so perhaps this is one to try out! What are you wearing on your cheeks in the photo? The colour is so cute and peachy. xx

  8. Hmmmmn, interesting to say you're a massive fan of YSL mascara's. I've only tried YSL Shocking, and whilst I LOVED the results to start with, throughout the day it just went more and more 'brittle' and parts would fall off over my face - not a good look! I don't know whether to try another or if they're all pretty similar?

  16. It looks lovely on you; I got a sample of this recently and personally I really didn't like it - it seemed to take ages to dry on the lashes. The only waterproof mascara I really like is Dior Addict, plus the brush is nice and chunky! x
