Day 10: YSL Shocking Mascara
It seems like I've given a lot of 3 out of 5 snowflakes during the past 12 days. The truth is so many of them have been average. I wish I had more to tell you, but that's the plain truth. Sad to say my beloved YSL was no different. For many of you that read this blog you know how much I adore my YSL lipsticks. They're amazing! The packaging, the colors, the peachy smell -- everything about them is perfect. Perfect! To be honest, I was a little biased (okay, maybe a lot!) going into my week with the YSL Shocking mascara. I had high hopes that the mascara would live up to my lipsticks expectations... Not the case.
So, can you justify spending $30 on a mascara when the overall performance is average? Maybe. There are a few small luxuries that did set it apart from many of the others that only YSL could offer. If love scents (like I do), you will love the smell. It smells like rose water. Seriously, rose water! The lovely rose water scent was a nice way to start-off my day (it's the little things, right?). The mascara itself is a super deep black color which helps with the appearance of fuller lashes, total bonus. It also has pro-vitamin B5 which helped my lashes feel so soft. Aside from that, it's performance was okay. I expected for the price point it would blow all the others out of the (rose) water!
