My Favourite Mascara - YSL Faux Cils

I have wanted to do a 'Before and After' post on my favourite mascara for forever but it's something I just seem to have never gotten around too.

I have posted about my love for Yves Saint Laurent's Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara before but wanted to do a close up shot to give you a better look of the mascara in action.

Faux Cils gives you the blackest of black lashes, it also makes them look longer, more curled and thicker too.  I have tried a lot of mascara's over the years and nothing comes close to this one for me.  I have experienced the same darkest black shade in other mascaras and I have also experienced a similar longer length but I have never ever experienced the volume and thickness to my lashes that this gives me and I think that's it's secret to giving you the best, most beautiful lashes.

I have only put one coat of mascara on in the above pictures (wow, major eye close up alert, apologies) that was just to give you a better idea of what it looks like if your wearing it on a day to day basis.  I will normally always do two coats and even sometimes three if I want a dramatic effect as it really does give you the same look false eyelashes do the more coats you put on but I wanted to show the mascara at its tamest as I know not everyone likes the spider-eyelash effect even though I just love it.

You can see in the picture above how different my lashes look in the before and after, so much longer and thicker and a lot less sparse too.
The other thing I love is your eyelashes don't droop throughout the day, you know when you use some mascaras and it gives you the best curl in the morning but by the afternoon your lashes are heading towards your feet, well this one keeps your eyes looking wide awake all day.

I honestly can not recommend this enough, I wholeheartedly love it and hope that if you've ever been on the fence you give it a wee go as it really does transform your eyes!

What is your favourite ever mascara, I would love to know?
