YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils Shocking Mascara Review

This little beauty steamed through my letter box on Monday. I may have squealed with delight! I had no idea it was coming and was most welcome to take away the Monday blues. 

This seems to be quite a cult product in the beauty world and of course I have been dying to try it for ages, but being around the £22 mark I couldn't quite justify it! The first thing you notice is the scent, a light floral smell that is much more pleasant than any other mascara's I've used - not that I go round sniffing them mind you! The wand is slim and  the brush manages to grab all the lashes and coat them evenly, it did flatten the curl a touch but nothing too major. I couldn't get a good enough picture to capture the pure amazeness but It gave such a great effect, almost dolly like but in a good way! A couple of coats  with no clumping, I seriously like this mascara! 

This was sent from What's in my Handbag, a site that has one product to sample each week. You need to register for that product in the hope that you get picked. This is my first product from them and super happy! You can sign up too, this is my referral link and you get some goodies if you refer 25 people. So get referring!
