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.
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.
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!
