“I won’t cry for you. My mascara is too expensive” 

Somewhere deep down in my heart ,I follow it religiously. If you are not a makeup junkie,maybe you won’t understand the happiness of a fast drying and perfectly eye lash curling mascara. But ask me, on those hazy and lazy days, when you are feeling low, All you need is a black mascara to open your eyes wide which makes you feel awakened so that you can see this beautiful world clearly.

So, today its all about a high-end lash curling mascara.Just as we used to do with “My best friend “essay in school (I have so many friends, but XYZ is my best friend). Similarly, There are so many mascara in the market but my favorite one of them all is the YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux CILS in charcoal black. You ask me WHY? So here I go with all I know about this magic wand.

But this beautiful charcoal black YSL eyeliner here on Souq.com

About the brand:

Yves Saint Laurent YSL aka Saint Laurent Paris is a French luxury fashion house founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Berge.Founded in 1961 it has been considered one of the world’s most prominent fashion houses. It also has a notable presence in the luxury beauty market through L’Oreal Paris that licenses the name.

Product Description:

A golden pack carries this beautiful golden mascara container. The outer pack has all the details mentioning the ingredients and the directions to use.


The container has a click lock which is easy to use and lock. The wand’s length is similar to any other with a smaller nylon fibre brush.


Product Claim:

Luxurious Mascara for a false lash effect in our deepest black colour ever, for a dangerously glamorous look. Black, the emblematic colour of Yves Saint Laurent, designed in a unique intensity, radically magnetic. This non-drying and waterproof formula is enriched with B5 pro-vitamin, which deepens, darkens, and leaves lashes look instantly thicker. The nylon fiber brush builds luscious volume, coating lashes from root to tip for a bold false-lash look.

Available colours:

Charcoal black, Burnt brown, Signature violet, Majorelle blue and Gold sand.



Directions to use:

Start applying at the root of the lash on the outside of the eye. Apply the brush to the lash, pushing upwards and outwards at the same time with a zig-zag motion so that it separates the lashes while applying the mascara. On the inner lashes and the bottom lashes, use just the tip of the brush and apply to Individual lashes.

  • The biggest quality is it being waterproof. It doesn’t smudge at all and you don’t end up with panda eyes. It can be worn to office, party, gym, beach and even underwater.
  • It is not only waterproof but sweat proof too.
  • It does give a dramatic and luxurious false lash effect with intense volume and exceptional hold.
  • It can help curling the straight eyelashes by elongating them without even the hassle of using falsies.
  • The brush picks a good amount of product in one dip and can be applied to both eyes in one go. The unique brush is designed to work specifically with the new formula to maximise lash volume and a good hold.
  • It doesn’t cause eye irritation.
  • It doesn’t clump after some uses. It remains in nice liquidy form which makes it easy to apply and dry.


  • If worn more than two coats, this mascara can smudge.
  • You need an oil based cleanser to remove this one which can be an extra effort as its not easy to remove with regular cleanser or wipe.
  • Its from a luxury brand, so is obviously pricey.

I have used a lot of other mascara from both high end and drugstore brands, but the one that has worked for my eyes is this gorgeous beauty. I would definitely recommend this to someone who is either fed up with false eye lashes or wants a quick fix for short or straight eye lashes. A big big thumbs up for this one. I absolutely love and and will be repurchasing it as well.

So thats about it. May this article proves beneficial in making a choice among wide variety of mascara available these days. If you have any queries or questions, make sure to leave a comment below.
