Influenster Vox Box YSL Mascara Review by trishsutton.comIf you have ever read my ‘about page’ you might remember that
I LOVE Mascara

It is my staple product.  In fact, I absolutely will not leave home without Mascara.

Fortunately, my best friend is also a lover of Mascara and with her being in the beauty industry she is quick to hear about the latest greatest mascaras which she kindly shares with me.

Several years ago Yves Saint Laurent’s Volume Effet Mascara was the talk of my BFF’s (then) salon.  It was pretty fabulous stuff!  The gold tube of YSL mascara created a longer lash effect.  However, there were complaints of flaking.  YSL heard the concern.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara has been remastered! 

Influenster Vox Box YSL False Effect Mascara Review by tagsthoughts

YSL’s ‘NEW’ improved formula does not dry out.

YSL took the original false lash effect mascara and added an all new Lash Care formula to create dramatic lashes that last.  That’s me (up there) with two coats of regular mascara on one eye and two coats of YSL’s latest formula on the other eye.  The difference is indeed dramatic.

I received YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara complimentary from Influenster however retail is $32.  A great deal in my opinion.  I pay $29 for my current favorite mascara which lasts me near three months.  While I am uncertain how long this gold tube of Mascara will last when worn daily I can say that it does not smudge or flake.  And the feeling of YSL’s Mascara is very “light”.

The only thing I was ‘not so crazy about’ was the struggle to remove the Mascara at the end of the night.  It did not come off during my routine face wash using just facial cleanser.  It does, however, come off with oil free make-up remover which is an easy compromise when it comes to a Mascara that looks good all day.

YSL offers six fabulous shades of their remastered false effect Mascara.  Check them out here.  I can’t wait to try the shade “Deep Night”.

What is your favorite Mascara?

And while we are on the topic I’d love to hear about your favorite Lash Curler!  I haven’t cared much for the last three I have purchased.
