Strongest points
Made my lashes look very long and separated.
Weakest points
Doesn't seem to be a consistent product when repurchasing.
Summary
The first time I bought and used this I was very impressed. The packaging is very classy and it looks really nice in your make up bag. The lid clicks shut in a very satisfying way when closing it too and, strangely, it smells really nice. I have never noticed a fragrance (well, not a pleasant one at least) with a mascara but this has a faint floral smell which is pleasant. The first tube really defined my lashes and separated well without clumping or spidering. I did notice that, although it made my lashes look much longer and defined, they were still quite thin, and so for me this had no volumising effect. The real proof in the pudding came when I was in a lift with a male colleague who leaned towards me and said "are you wearing false eyelashes", to which I giggled and said no, it was my new YSL mascara. He later called me a fool when he asked and I told him the price of it, but after his initial compliment I had decided this would be my mascara forever - I had finally found the one!.......However.....when I repurchased my second tube I was really disappointed. It was almost like I was using a different product. It dried out within a couple of weeks so I got very little use out of it (the first one lasted a couple of months). Because I was so pleased with it the first time round I gave it the benefit of the doubt and presumed I had just got a faulty one and bought another, but found it to be the same - dried out within a couple of weeks and not as effective as the first time round. At £23 a time I don't think I will buy a fourth as it's too inconsistent a product, in my experience, which is disappointing as I thought it was super the first time round.

Strongest points
Literally one of the most gorgeous packaging I have seen on a mascara. It definitely separated my lashes with the first coat.
Weakest points
After the first coat, it does make eyelashes look clumpy and it is an expensive product so I was expecting more.
Summary
If you want a beautifully packaged mascara then this is for you but if you want a beauty staple, it is best to look elsewhere.

What girl would not fall for this gorgeous gold tube with promise of lengthening and curling effects for that ‘doe eyed’ look? I purchased this mascara on a promotion and was totally seduced by the gorgeous high shine gold design. The brush is a medium size with bristles that are fairly short. When applied to the lashes the pigment is deep and excellent but I found that the formula was heavy and actually weighted down my lashes. Also the mascara dries very quickly and upon applying the second coat my lashes clumped.
