HG ALERT! Let me tell you, this YSL and Too Faced combination is the ultimate HG for falsies without the fuss of actually putting lashes on! (FYI I suck at applying lashes, def have to work on that.)
Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Extension System: This comes with two items, the white tube filled with nylon fibers and the gold tube with the actual mascara. The process is a three step one. You apply the actual mascara as the primer, then the nylon fibers as a coating and then the mascara again to seal it off. Personally I am not a fan of the nylon fibers (I have sensitive eyes). Then again I might just be putting it on wrong but it's okay because the mascara makes up for it. The mascara has a light scent to it and goes on very smoothly. It doesn't clump and it pretty light when applied. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a HG product and have a few extra bucks to spend (emphasize on the s in bucks.)
YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking: Absolutely amazing quality. This was my first YSL purchase and boy was I pleased. On opening it a rose scented smell was given off so if you aren't a fan of scented mascara, avoid this one (but you are missing out!). The mascara goes on smoothly and is very creamy. With just one coat, you get dramatic effects, so it isn't necessary to pack it on. I had no problem with clumps and one aspect that I LOVED about this was how flexible it was. After allowing the mascara to dry, I was still able to move and shape my lashes, they weren't crunchy or flakey. This is my go to mascara when I don't feel like wearing any makeup, just a little bit of this and I am out the door.
Quality: The two are very well made and show through the use of the product. Not only do they glide on with ease, they stay put for a long time. I had no problems with smudging or flaking.
Packaging: Did you guys see the packaging? How freaking cute is that! I wouldn't mind popping out one of those tubes in public, like bam, look at this beauty!
Pricey: Remember when I talked about bucks, well these two products are very pricey. When I bought them, they totaled me a hefty $65.00 USD. The YSL was $30.00 USD from Sephora and the Too Faced was $35.00 USD from Sephora as well. Like I said, you are going to need a few extra buckS.
Overall, I would definitely purchase these again because of the quality and the effect they give off. These two are products that you won't regret buying. Now I'm not going to deny the factor of how pricey they are but quite frankly, it's YSL and Too Faced, it's sort of expected won't you say?
One of the best ways to save a few bucks would be to sign up for Ebates. I'm not trying to get all promotey on you guys but truth be told, one of the ways I can afford half the stuff I buy is because of Ebates. I will be doing a post on Ebates and how they work. Look out for that one soon!
