Yves Saint Laurent - Babydoll mascara

I have very very unruly lashes. They literally grow every which way. Some of them grow upwards, some grow side ways, some grow down wards and then there are the hybrids that grow in very tight curls, like they just grow and curl into themselves, it is just very frustrating. I've grown to love them though, they quite simply have a mind of their own.

When I started using make up, my lashes made mascara application a pain in the back side. I realised without too much stress the ones that worked and the ones that didn't. As I type, I think I've only used 2 mascaras that did me any good. There is one from clinique and then there is this one and with both mascaras, I think that the brushes/wand did most of the magic.

If you have very curly or unruly lashes, the mascara wand/brush is key. You need something that can actually separate the trees in the jungle so the type of brush that the mascara comes with is highly important. Wands that are well spaced will most likely give you the separation you want.

I bought this after asking a lot of questions and reading a lot of reviews. The lady that recommended it to me swore by it. She had it on at the time and believe me, her lashes looked amazing. I just took on look at her lashes and decided to go for it.

With that said,

Yves Saint Laurent celebrates Haute Couture with a high tech attitude.  Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Baby Doll.
Wide open, her eyes attract all the attention.  A falsely innocent sensuality.  Stunning.  Baby Doll.

With one stroke our brush and patented formula magnifies your eyes through the innovative structure of dual-length bristles and intense color pigment for defined volume that last for 24 hours.  The multifaceted brush alternates thick, widely spaced bristles to coat and magnify your lashes, while finer, more closely spaced bristles define even the shortest lashes, one by one, from the root to the tip.

I almost took this back after using it the first day. This IS  the most expensive mascara that I own so I wasn't ready to settle for nonsense. I made plans to go back to Sephora and return it  but I used it again the next day and decided that it wasn't bad at all. 

I've had it for so long now and I can honestly say that this is a really good mascara. It separates, defines and lengthens your lashes. Your guys know that I'm a sucker for good packaging and the packaging is simply gorgeous. It looks and feels like you actually payed a good amount of money for it. 

Price - $30

  1. L'Oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24hr also separates and thickens.......I actually use 3 different mascaras to get the full effect, first I use MAC extended play gigablack lash and I use MAC zoom lash on top of that and finally the L'Oreal mega volume to separate.........my lashes come out looking really artificial, and everyone is always asking if they are real.....lol

  2. I love mascara and the truth is that mascara reviews are my favourite to read (right along with nail polish posts even though I rarely paint my nails and have horrible ones actually, lol).
    Heard a lot about this mascara and the wand is just gorgeous and I totally agree with you on the packaging, it can't look anymore expensive than gold packaging right?
