I never actually thought I would fall in love with coloured mascara until I met this babe, right here. YSL Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara in Majorelle Bleu is something which unexpectedly blew me over. Granted, this was my first tryst with a splash of colours on my lashes, but it was a lovely one.
As a mascara, I like how this works – it is not clumpy – which is really the only thing I look for in mascara. I don’t care if it is not overly lengthening, volumizing or curling – but it must not give me spider lashes. With this one, my lashes take a naturally lengthened and volumized form, not artificial. The only qualm is that it does not hold a curl perfectly. Of course, you would know that I have mascara on with all that blue – but it is not a double whammy of artificial. I like how it keeps it real as a mascara.
When it comes to the blue, I love it against my brown eyes. It is so apt for the summer, I love how it looks against bold black liner and bright pop of colour. The colour in the mascara covers my black lashes completely.
Overall thoughts: As a mascara, YSL Effet Faux Cils in Majorelle Bleu is natural, so the pop of blue is easy on the eyes. With two coats you’ll have naturally blue lashes – hey that’s quite oxymoronic, non?
