A little bit of YSL...

YSL Volum Effet Faux Cils in Black

I bought this on a whim as Feel Unique were selling it for a decent price (though if this
is anything to go by, I reckon that has stopped now) and I'd wanted it for a while but, as ever with YSL stuff, found the cost a little prohibitive. I'm SO glad I indulged, this mascara is amazing - in conjunction with using RapidLash I actually have lashes that look a decent length (and touch the skin at the top of my eyebrows) as well as them looking really black and full, woo-hoo! As well as my eyelashes remaining soft and not crispy-looking. I think this may well be my ultimate mascara, I even like the brush.

It has a light perfumed smell and the packaging is ultra luxe too, all very gold and swanky looking. I've heard some complaints that it dries up in the tube pretty quickly, but I've had it about a month now and no changes so far, I'll update if that happens though.

YSL Lip Twins Lip Duo Satin/Shine Lipstick - 9 Fuchsia Orange

This also has rather fancy packaging, it wasn't what I was expecting when I ordered this online! It's basically two blocks of lipbalm/gloss in a tube that you can turn around (I'm not explaining this well at all) to show the colours. The middle pulls out as a brush.

I like the colours - they're well pigmented too - and the packaging is sublime but to be honest the actual product itself is nothing absolutely amazing to me, it just seems a bit like a standard lip balm/gloss type thing (though a very nice one) with a brush. It's a very pretty and wearable addition to my make up bag though, and I don't regret purchasing it.

In other YSL news, I was getting my eyebrows done and the beauty therapist said she liked my lipstick and made me show her what it was so she could write down the shade number and buy it. Of course it was my rather lovely YSL Rouge Volupte in Opera Rose and sad to say I felt a little bit proud showing it off!


  1. I've heard good things about this mascara too Luce, I bought the MUFE Smoky lash just before Christmas but I'm not a lover, that dried up quick. That lipgloss thing looks cute x

  2. I've been wanting to try Faux Cils for yolks but couldn't bring myself to spend £20 on mascara but I'm sooo tempted to

  3. I've been wanting to try this mascara for so long, and when I finally did, I was sooooooo disappointed. It does absolutely nothing for my lashes, it smudges like crazy and it dries sop fast. Total crap for me, but at least I'm glad it works for you x

  4. I swear by this mascara!!! So glad to have found someone else who likes it! :D Though I do have to admit that I agree that it dries up pretty fast in the tube but the effect it has on the lashes in my opinion is worth having to re-purchase every 6-8 weeks :)
