Hi Everyone, 🙂

Even though I am a super black mascara lover, every once in a while, I do like to give coloured mascara a go. I picked up this Yves Saint Laurent The Shock Volumizing Mascara in “Underground Blue.” I adored the denim blue color of the mascara. This mascara is available in 3 colors – Asphalt Black, Underground Blue and Rough Burgundy.

Price:
$29/INR 1800 approximately.
Product Description:
The most volumizing mascara by Yves Saint Laurent. The Shock mascara coats each lash with maximum volume in just one stroke and without clumping. The hourglass shaped brush allows more of the exclusive shock formula to grab hold of lashes. With brilliant, high intensity color, this long-wear mascara will give you dramatic lashes that won’t smudge.

My Experience with Yves Saint Laurent The Shock Volumizing Mascara Underground Blue:

It comes packed in this cool black and a pale rose pink packaging. The YSL logo is engraved on the cap. The brush is actually my favourite kinds – shorter bristles at the tip and longer bristles at the end.

Here’s a list of pros and cons for this YSL Shock Mascara:

1. The blue is absolutely gorgeous on the tube, but I would have preferred it to be a more “stand-out blue.” It’s more of a subtle blue. If you have very fair skin tone, this would stand out more on you as opposed to my medium olive skin tone. I always end up wanting for more punch of color with this one.

2. Although it is meant to be a volumising mascara, I find that it is more of a lengthening mascara and I quite like it. My lashes look pretty long when I use it.

3. The brush is absolutely lovely, the shorter bristles help in coating the very inner corner of the lashes and the longer bristles coat the outside end of lashes very evenly and separately.

4. This is a perfumed mascara. Although it has never irritated my eyes, I would have definitely preferred a non-perfumed version.
5. It does not crumble or smudge or smear. I have worn it in really hot days of summer here in Delhi, and it has never failed me.
6. It holds the curl pretty well all throughout the day.
7. Because the color does not have the same punch as I was excepting, I always find that it starts looking a bit lacklustre by the end of the day. It’s not the bright kind of a blue that would add brightness to your eyes. I feel it starts with a little medium shade and by the end of the day, it starts looking dull.

8. The formula is creamy – neither too wet nor too dry and it coats the lashes evenly. I’d say that the formula is a bit on the thick side. This may be to create volume but I don’t find it very volumising (as you’d notice in photos). But what I love the most about the formula is that it separates the lashes beautifully and coats them evenly without getting clumpy.
9. It dries quite fast once you apply it on your lashes. You can layer it up as well and it builds up just fine without getting too clumpy.

Overall, it is not my favourite mascara. It is somewhere midway. I am someone who prefers to have a lot of punch from her mascara. I want my lashes to look va-va voom when I use a mascara. This one lacks both in terms of color and the volume I’d prefer from my mascara. However, if you are an office goer and looking for a mascara and looking for that subtle change from your black one, his is right up your alley – it’s not too bright, nor too crazy lash(y) and stays on good all day long without feathering or smudging. This would also show up better on those with very fair skin tones. Nothing wrong with it but it’s not for me.
