Good day to all who looked!
I decided to test the mascara from YSL in a miniature format. It became interesting whether it is so good, and whether there is a significant difference with numerous competitors.
Where to buy: direct link;
The cost of the full-size option: 2 298 rubles (1724 rubles when registering on the site);
From the manufacturer:
Eyelashes become even more curved, and the image - more bold and bold thanks to the new product from YSL Beaute - curling mascara with the effect of false eyelashes.
The double-sided curved brush easily curls and lengthens the eyelashes, and the unique mascara formula lifts and fixes them. The composition of the product is enriched with three plant extracts - walnut leaf extract, coconut and bamboo oils that nourish the eyelashes, giving them softness and shine regardless of the time of day.

The cost of the product excludes the presence of components that aggressively affect the eyes and eyelashes. I can say for sure that there was no allergic reaction after use.
What is mascara?
Since I have a miniature, the appearance is different from the option available for sale.
The shade is classic black. The color is saturated, on the eyelashes it looks a bit darker than some others. In the photo below you can see the swatch .
Bend brush. I have not used this form for a long time, more often I just came across straight lines. The size of the brush almost matches the size of the eyelid. Thanks to the bend it is more convenient to dye eyelashes. Mascara is applied more evenly. But this also needs to get used to , to know which side is better to color the upper and lower eyelashes.
The consistency is moderately thick. A small amount of surplus is visible on the brush. Sometimes it turns out they are not involved in the application process, but it happens that occasionally it interferes with high-quality separation.
I was pleasantly surprised that the mascara has a smell . The aroma is good, it is not associated with anything specific. Heard in the first few minutes. Then after a while I catch that smell again. An hour later, he is completely gone.
After opening, mascara should be used within 6 months.
My eyelashes are not long enough, they practically have no bend and they lack volume. Closer to the ends they are lighter, which makes them appear even shorter. Accordingly, with the help of mascara I always try to fix it. In the photo below you can see the whole picture.
I usually apply mascara in two layers. One layer is enough if I am in a hurry or want a more natural make-up.
Mascara in one layer:
First, I color the lower eyelashes. I do this by barely touching them with a brush. They only become black and look longer. Very natural. It is more difficult to achieve exactly the same effect with the upper ones.
She didn’t put out her eyelashes, but quickly made up. Below are photos where I applied mascara more carefully.
She perfectly shares eyelashes. Yes there, not a single mascara has separated them so well. Great volume. Each cilium is stained, minimum adhesion. In the photos, the lashes were not shared by anything. I haven’t seen this for a long time.
Of course, mascara visually lengthens eyelashes . Yes, it lengthens so much that there are simply no words. I look at some of my other reviews on mascara ... There is an obvious difference.
As for the promised fixation of the eyelashes, we did not lie, we get an excellent bend.
The result in one layer looks very natural.
Mascara in two layers:
Here, the coating is already more dense , for fans of such an application. Eyelashes are a little sticky, but not critical. There are still a lot of them, they did not stick together in a heap.
The length is just colossal! You can’t even say that my eyelashes are somehow different ... I simply don’t recognize them.
Durability is good. During the day, it does not crumble and does not spread. On the eyelashes is not felt. May appear lumps on the second layer ( especially because of the rush ).
Mascara is easy to remove using a special tool. I have Nivea Makeup Expert. You will have to tinker with micellar water a little longer, but this is a common thing. Cleanser removes makeup residue well.
When applied in a single layer with make-up remover there is no problem at all.
Mascara from Yves Saint Laurent called Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils The Curler really pleased me, even surprised me. Although the price is rather big, the quality is at the highest level. Such a result, as with this mascara, is not always possible to achieve. Excellent separation, colossal length and volume - that’s what it is capable of. If you try, then, indeed, you can achieve the effect of false eyelashes.
Thanks for your attention!
