Last week, I got a chance to preview the new YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture ($39) collection, and as someone who loves colour, I fell head over heels immediately. Of course, I’ve tried colourful mascara in the past, but I’ve never encountered a formula as vibrant as YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture. This mascara comes in 9 shades – from electric pink to bright blue to gold sparkle top coat, and all variations are super fun to play with. At the event, I saw some girls wear two different colours on their top and bottom lashes, while others tried the pop of colour just on the tips, leaving the rest of their lashes black.
For my look, I went with pink lashes, because while I’ve tried blue before, pink was totally unchartered territory, so why not?! After a couple of swipes of pink mascara, my lashes definitely stood out – the effect was pretty dramatic, yest still wearable. The formula felt very nice on my lashes, gave it extra length and volume while adding a pop of colour to my look. And it stayed put all day long – no flakes under my eyes!. Colourful mascara is such an easy way to be playful this summer that I’ve been trying different variations ever since the event! Needless to say, I am a huge fan of YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture collection.
If bright blue or pink are just too much for you, I’d suggest trying green or purple for a more subtle effect, or perhaps a glittery silver top coat for that extra sparkle for a night out. Whichever shade you end up picking, I’m sure you’ll be hooked!
