YSL The New Blacks

“There is not one black, there are blacks.” Yves Saint Laurent


He said it and I agree. There are different shades of blacks. This collection gives you their latest mascara, gel eyeliner, eyeliner brush, nail lacquers (fancier term for nail polish) and so I am just here to share with you what could be of interest. I’ll say it straight right here right now, YSL definitely wins in terms of packaging. A golden luxury, a spark of light in a sea of black bottles in your vanity table.

First, let’s talk about the mascara…
(little side note: out of all names, why did they pick “shocking”? It’s shocking to me)

Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking

Luxurious Mascara – Shocking

A technological innovation that breaks every rule.
(Every rule? Oh, really?)
Immediate volume that coats lashes in one stroke.
(One stroke? You gotta be kidding me, right?)

The brush is asymmetric and is meant to work the length and curl. The bristles are set in different directions.

What’s so different about the formula?
It is composed of two types of wax: soft adherent waxes, which instantly thicken out lashes and hard waxes to maximise the curve

Comes in 3 shades:
No. 1 Deep Black
No. 3 Bronze Black
No. 4 Sea Black

RRP $52
