I’m definitely loving Influnster.  Ever since i started with them, they just pampering me with awesome products that I can’t help myself being amazed sometimes.  This time, i must admit that my heartbeat got faster and my excitement grew up each day until the day I was actually seeing this box. I so love Yves Saint Laurent and I guess who doesn’t so.

They are not just well known brand in Fashion but their beauty products is a top notch too.  So,  I could say that I’m so pretty lucky to try this new products of them via Influenster.

So pardon my excitement and let’s begin the serious thoughts. This Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara is very new in the market.  It only has 21 reviews on Sephora and 22 on YSL website at this time .  It has a retail value at $32 which can be considered as high end product.

Based on YSL website:

NEW improved formula does not dry out. The best gets even better, the original false lash effect mascara, now with an all new Lash Care formula. Achieve absolute dramatic lashes in a single stroke for eyes that instantly pop. Its secret is the Triple-Intensity Formula: intense volume, intense color and now intense care. The nylon fiber brush coats each lash in deep color and maximum volume from root to tip, while B5 Pro-Vitamin strengthens and protects lashes. Available in 6 signature YSL shades to compliment eye color or to create a customized look. ysl US

Since it’s a high end beauty product, the expectation is generally high.  So does it trully provides high volume and a dramatic false lash effect? Of course since I so love mascara, my answer would always be yes. So, as not to corrupt the result on this review, i also let my niece try it for herself and let me know her thoughts about it.

The shade is very nice and instantly create a dramatic effect, the effect of using a false eyelashes but never feeling that you are using one. It was easy to use and glide perfectly even on your small lashes.

I believed that it is not waterproof  and for someone like me who easily cries could be a problem. I do hope that they can create a waterproof product in the near future but so far it doesn’t seem to be a big problem since it stays in your lashes for quite a reasonable time without the hassle of removing it with the use of make up remover.

It can help your eyes pop and if you love making dramatic eyes, this would be a great way to start.

This new brewer gives you two option.  Enjoy a single serve cup of coffee for yourself or brew 4 cups of coffee at the same time to share with your family or friends.  What’s great with this new Keurig is you can have an option if you want to brew cocoa or special beverage like lattes and mocha and if you feel like drinking a hot tea, you can just get a hot water since it offers hot water on demand.
