Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils Mascara

After the hugely impressive performance by Chantecaille's Faux Cils last week, we decided to start up some friendly make up rivalry by pitting it against YSL's very own take on the false lash effect.

Also going by the name of Faux Cils (could this be the 'Smith' of the mascara world?) , YSL's sleek golden tube is packed full of B5 and bioactive sugars designed to protect each lash from dehydration and other harmful external factors. It doesn't smell quite as lovely as it's opponent, but the brush is big, bushy and brilliant at it's job!




It took us around 3 coats to achieve this look. The formula built up nicely and didn't seem to clump at all. Our lashes felt super light and fluttery, plus by zig zagging the brush during application we were able to create a stunning feathery effect.

So how does it fair against Chantecaille? Well let's just let the pictures do the talking. Remember, this is ONE coat of Chanticaille VS THREE coats of YSL.

Overall, they both do a stunning job. If you crave length over volume than pick up Chantecaille. If you crave volume over length then head for YSL. We personally prefer the application of Chantecaille - yet we've never seen a mascara do fluttery lashes as well as Yves Saint Laurent. From the photos above, YSL certainly gives the more 'false' appearance.

We are aware that this is an extremely unfair test comparing 3 coats of mascara to 1!

YSL Faux Cils Mascara is available worldwide and at for a BARGAIN £12.99
