Recently I was given the opportunity from Influenster to try out the Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara ($39). Seeing Cara rock that gorgeous bright blue mascara on the advertisement instantly made me want to try out their new mascara offering, and I received the shade #1 in I’m The Clash.
I tried this mascara two ways, with curled lashes and without, to see how it faired. Without my lashes curled, the mascara didn’t do much to lift them at all and I found it just looked rather messy. With them curled, I got a better result but I have very short, sparse lashes so most mascaras tend to not be able to do much for me and I dream of lash extensions more and more every day.
One coat of this mascara on the lashes gave a nice natural effect, but as soon as I started to layer a second coat I could instantly see that my lashes started clumping together. I ran a spoolie through them to get rid of some of the excess product but they still seemed to want to stick to each other. The formula dried extremely quickly and is very black, which is something I like about this mascara, but overall it sadly just didn’t wow me. It also has a tendency to flake and fall down onto your cheeks which I’m not a fan of.
I love the idea of having bright coloured mascara to bolden up your look, but I won’t be racing to the Sephora counter any time soon.
Have you tried the YSL Vinyl Couture mascara?
