Yves Saint Laurent has done it again! It has taken a mascara and developed it into something with shocking volume and intensity; a mascara which has been truly mastered. This mascara is clump-free and gives master volume from root to tip from the very first stroke. The formula is extremely thick and comes equipped with an exclusive volumizing brush.
As a mascara snob, I was hesitant to try this one knowing that nothing has some close to the Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara. However, keeping an open mind, YSL’S The Shock quickly became my GO-TO. It builds so much volume. It is very pigmented and does not FLAKE, or clump. The hourglass shaped wand does well at evenly coating the lashes and gets close enough to the root of the lashes without running the risk of stabbing yourself in the eye. I personally think the package is gorgeous. It resembles the new Black Opium fragrance bottle. By the way, it is also one of my favorite perfumes!
I am literally obsessed with this mascara! Not only does this mascara truly curl and lengthen, but it keeps the curl throughout the day. It does not feel as if it weighs down my lashes at all. It did not flake when applying, and it did not dry so fast that you could only apply one coat. I applied two coats, and it did not clump. This is one of the best mascaras that I have tried in a while.
I highly recommend this mascara to anyone looking to add volume, curl, and length. It does all three! I would also like to add that during my research I came across several reviews for those with sensitive eyes. This mascara did not other bother their eyes, and the mascara was easy to remove with regular makeup remover.
Yves Saint Laurent The Shock Mascara retails for $29.00. It may be purchased at Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstroms.
