Reviewed: YSL Singulier Mascara

What they say
'A mascara that dares everything - volume, length and extreme curves - and sculpts the lashes creating a base effect "liner" for a look that is unique yet irresistible'

What I say

Glossy, gold, metal shiny-ness. Nuff said :)
Singulier comes with a medium size bristle wand - the bristles are actually 2 different lengths which gives it a spiral appearance. The formula is medium consistency - personally I like a bit more on the brush but its not one of those overly dry/unworkable formulas.

It does have a fairly obvious floral/perfume scent (apparently all YSL mascaras have this but this is only one I've owned so can't confirm!) I can't say I mind it although it is a bit odd to use a scented mascara!

Singulier gave me good length and volume and reasonable curl. Not quite as knockout as Holly achieved...she seems to get a far more dramatic look out of this mascara than I do! The girl has skills!

Freshly applied this mascara looks great but throughout the day I did find that it became a little dry and flaky and on top of this, the tube itself also dries up quickly - I've been using it daily for just under a month and its more or less dead :( Would really like to get a more use for the price which is.....

Price £21.50 (ouch!)

Would I repurchase?
I really like the result this mascara gives and the sleek packaging has a lot of feel-good factor about it, but the fact that it dries out so quickly makes it no-no from me.

Would I recommend?
Yes but be prepared to replace this often.

Until next time,
