Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils Mascara


                         

Influenster sent me this product completely free to test and hopefully fall madly in love with to boost sales. It's a struggle to find an accurate review when a product is given for free. How many reviews can be taken seriously, when people are just raving about a product in hopes to get more offers. Luckily, you have me.

YSL. I stalked my mailman for you. I relentlessly searched the internet for details and photos of you. I read reviews and looked at before and after photos, waiting for your arrival. I was one of the lucky ones receiving you. The tears and complaints of those not lucky enough to receive you, filled my heart with joy! Excitement! And then...you came.

Packaged in a golden tube, like the outdated over-priced make-up items, easily located in the department stores was others supposed "holy-grail." The mascara was florally scented which caused my delicate eyes to water immediately. The over-sized, bushy brush was a challenge to work with, with my less than doll-like eyes. Several coats later, and no overwhelmingly look of satisfaction, I went to work. 8 hours in a fast-paced retail environment, I had to endure several touch-ups and increasingly dark raccoon-eyes. To look and me and think of me as anything more than an amateur make-up enthusiast would have been a compliment. I tried this mascara for 2 weeks, and the results were always the same.

With a $32.00 price-tag, I was horrified. I wanted to love this, but I couldn't.

I appreciate the offer to try this product, but I won't be welcoming it into my beauty routine any time soon.

Final Grade: C-
