While I’m waiting for my lashes to grow (see: RevitaLash grow-off), I’ve been using YSL’s newish mascara, which is designed to make you look like you’re wearing fake lashes (in the ‘wow, they’re so dramatic’ way, not the ‘wow, you look like a transvestite’ way). The brush is kind of ragged and rough so that instead of just sweeping your lashes to make them longer, it grabs and coats each lash with formula to make them fatter, darker, and longer at the same time. The formula is on the drier side, which is great if you curl your eyelashes — it acts as a fixer to help hold the pretty curve. But the best part about this mascara is that it’s rich enough to just use one coat!
