Product Review: YSL Volume Shocking Mascara


By Salma Jamal

A mascara that screams luxury and attitude is the very popular and much raved about YSL Volume Shocking Mascara.

Packaged in a gorgeous gold tube with the descriptive word” shocking” it looks chic and classy as expected from YSL.It claims to provide thick lustrous and voluminous lashes.It has a helix wand, and after trying it, I am a devoted fan of the mascara. Firstly, the packaging and scent is very inviting, its something I look forward to when I apply my makeup! The formula is thick and creamy, which for some may pose a problem of excess product on the wand. At times it can flake slightly but not very heavily.I adore the richness and pigment and love the thin brush which allows me to get right into the roots.One coat is natural and surely gives definition.The second means audacious volume and the coats after just continue to amplify and add drama to the lashes.

Its easy to remove with micellar water or eye makeup remover and doesn’t leave a rather annoying black residue.

The mascara is available at many high end stores like Scentsation, Sephora, Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdales. It costs roughly $32 and in my view that’s  money well spent.
