I am so excited about the latest makeup collection from Yves Saint Laurent beauty. The star of the show for me is YSL The Shock Mascara because it’s all about the kind of lashes I love – big, volumised and dramatic. There’s also a Couture Variation Palette and couture eye and brow makers along with the rather interesting Eye Gloss Smudger. Here’s the low down.
In this post I am looking at the mascara wich I have been absolutely desperate to try because it is getting a really great reception in the US where it launched first. I’m a big fan of YSL mascaras, and I just knew I was going to like this one before I even tried it.
It available HERE now.

- Brush has four inner reservoirs for maximum product hold

YSL The Shock Mascara Before & After
After (more coats!):
This mascara has a gorgeous creamy formulation. It glides on to the lashes really easily and even the first coat gives the lashes an impressive volumised look very quickly.
The lashes stayed curled all day which is quite a feat because I often find that volumising formulas can be a little heavy and sometimes weigh the lashes down. The formula is definitely more about volume than length which is perfect for me as I have fine, longish lashes. They need thickening up and curl, and this mascara delivers exactly that.
YSL The Shock Mascara is also available in 2 other shades, Rough Burgundy and Underground Blue. It is out now and available HERE for £23. It goes nationwide from 1st February 2017. Find it in the US HERE.
