REVIEW // YSL Shocking Mascara

YSL Shocking Mascara // £23.50 // link

The Yves Saint Laurent Shocking mascara has been my staple mascara for a long while now - this being my third tube so far.  My eyelashes are quite fair so something I look for in a mascara is good coverage.  I don't use eyelash curlers (out of pure laziness!) so my expectations for a mascara is to paint, curve and lengthen - and although it is a quality some people do look for in a mascara, I hate clumpiness!  I find it lasts all day without any smudging or flaking and personally find it comes off easily when I'm taking off my make up, but I've heard some people find it difficult to take it off completely so it may depend on type of cleanser (I use Clinique).  Overall I would rate it 9/10 in my knowledge of mascaras and judging against past mascaras I've had.  I hope you liked my attempt at a beauty post for my blog - I'm still quite new to the whole review thing but I'm going to keep trying!

  4. I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the
    eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit
    more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!

  9. I've been using Rimmel VolumeFlash ScandalEyes for over a year now. It's perfect because I have thin long eyelashes and other mascaras I've tried make my eyes look bare.
    This looks great on your eyes though!

  13. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!
