YSL Everlong Mascara Review

I'm snickering as I'm writing this because YSL Everlong Mascara sounds like a male porn star name. Imagine "Everlong".
This is YSL's lengthening mascara.
Taken from the website:
EVERLONG MASCARA is the very first mascara to offer an immediate make-up result and a more long term treatment action. It combines a new generation moulded brush with an innovative complex, the LASH GROWTH BOOSTER, which promotes the growth of your eyelashes.
It comes in six shades.
1- Ever Black
2 - Ever Brown
3 - Ever Blue
4- Ever Violet
5- Ever Burgundy
6- Ever Green
7- Ever Steel Blue
I bought this after running out of my favourite Chanel Imitable mascara. I tried Maybelline's Lash Blast and was seriously disappointed by it. I came across this blog "A Beautyful Sentiment" that did a comprehensive mascara review. So I decided to experiment with it.
I must say I love the matt gold casing. It is elegant and not overly loud and ostentatious.
The mascara wand is made of fine bristles that coats every lash. I love that it does not clump ever! Even after apply 3 coats. On its own, it gives me longer lashes. But I love my lashes to be vavavoom long and with volume. (Curse my short Asian lashes!!!) So before applying "Everlong" I take out my secret weapon. Shiseido's Mascara Base. When paired together, I get my desired effect.
The wand is very easy to maneuver unlike Diorshow with its massive wand. I am able to reach all lashes. It is waterproof and yet when cleaned off with Clinique's Take The Day Off makeup remover, every last bit of mascara comes off easily.
This baby cost about $40. I totally believe in paying what you get when it comes to mascaras. I have yet to find a drugstore brand that can compare to Chanel or YSL.

  1. I wonder if it does help growing your lashes. I know you won't get meter long lashes, but a significant length would be awesome!

  2. Have yuo tried Ardell's Lash and Brow Accerelator? I find that it helps me strengthen my lashes and does help it become longer.
