5 Days of Lashes: No. 5 YSL Aquaresistant Mascara in Blue Review

I actually went to the counter for one of my favourite mascaras, YSL Faux Cils, in Electrc Blue which is the nicest blue mascara I have ever tried. They didn’t have it in stock and the girl insisted, swore to me, that Aquaresistant is exactly the same as Faux Cils but waterproof.

They say:

Defying the elements. Essential at summer vacation time, this waterproof mascara ‘ Aquaresistant mascara’ from YSL coats, lengthens and thickens the lashes while protecting them from the drying effects of salt, chlorine and sun.

With furrowed brow, I accepted the mascara in blue – as you can see it looks just as chic!
The brush also looks the same and the blue is also very vivid.

What I loved about the Faux Cils is that the blue was very vivid and covered my lashes completely, making them a hot electric blue shade.

The mascara is ok – but not as lovely as Faux Cils. Maybe on paper the formula is the same bar the waterproof element but I found this more dry, less opaque and whilst its lengthening I felt it lacked volume.

On the lashes:

From underneath you can see the colour. It doesn’t hold curl but doesn’t cause complete floppage.

Verdict:

If I’m honest I am disappointed! It lacks the richness, the fullness and softness faux cils gives. I can’t I believe I let her talk me into this but she said it was totally the same! Bah!
