This weekend I got to go play at Sephora and let me tell you, I MISS having a Sephora so close!! The one in JCPenney just isn't the same... siiigh. I definitely spent about an hour just flitting around the store. Good times!
I have read some amazing reviews for YSL's Mascara Singulier, (like the review here), so I decided to give it a shot. Who doesn't love a super-fab mascara?
What it claims--- Well this one comes with a little baby pamphlet, so I will try to paraphrase:
A daring new interpretation of beautiful eyes. Glamorous volume, bold length, voluptuous curl and dramatic styling: Mascara Singulier dares to do everything. At the heart of this long-lasting formula, the "Modelling Stretch Complex" sculpts the lashes in three dimensions: Volumizing micro-spheres, Miscro-fibres to extend the lashes, and a High Performance curling wax.
A unique innovation by YSL, the mascara brush combines the technology of a traditional brush with the structure of a molded brush to increase the performance of the formula.
Um, will it walk the dog and do my homework, too?
Let's check out this "unique" brush:
The brush was very interesting-- part of the reason I had to try it! Why don't companies make the little trial wands with the actual brush? Maybe for suckas like me. Hmm..
So how did it do?
|Up to show length|
I have to admit. I drastically dislike like mascara.
Be warned, it is a fragranced mascara. It actually smells quite nice, not chemically, and it didn't bother my eyes-- but if your eyes are sensitive then this will not work for you.
The formula is a tad on the thick side, which might work nice with a different wand, but this combination is a no-go. The formula also dries out like nobody's business! By the end of the day, my eyes were almost itchy from the crunchy mascara. Bleh! (Though, it didn't flake. Odd.)
I don't know if you guessed this already or not, but in the next couple of days I am marching myself back to Sephora and returning this. It's probably the biggest mascara disappointment I have experienced.
In a flash~
Don't buy it!!!!
Have you had any major product flops?? Tell me about them!
Until next time--
