Who doesn't love full sized beauty freebies?!
The thing is, I'm also super attached to my brand of mascara. (L'Oreal Volumous in noir, if you're wondering.) So if I'm going to change brands, especially to YSL with a $32 price tag (you can pick up L'Oreal at Target for about $9) this stuff was going to have to be good. Like, really good.
So I decided to test it. In a hot yoga class.
I put on one coat before class, and I have to say: This stuff didn't clump. It went on easily and had a pleasant scent. One coat lengthened my lashes wonderfully! Ok YSL, you've got me interested... But can your formula withstand an hour of 103 degree vinyasa yoga flow?!

Drum roll, please!
It did. This was immediately after my class - I snapped a selfie in my car. There is NO mascara under my eyes and the product stayed put on my lashes. I *could* tell you how much I sweat in this class, but I'll save you the details. I was completely impressed YSL mascara didn't run halfway down my cheeks!

I don't wear much makeup these days, and I'm no beauty guru. But I DO wear mascara daily, and I DO workout daily. I was impressed this formula could withstand my workout abuse. I even got compliments when I walked into the studio, with the instructor saying, "Hey Paige, you look so pretty today!"
I'll take a compliment. And I'll take a mascara that will lengthen my lashes and hold up through an advanced yoga flow.
