Well folks, it's been a long hard slog, and I have to confess there were times when I almost gave up the fight, but at last - at long, long last - I have found my holy grail mascara, and if they ever stop making it? I will surely die. What follows, then, is a highly biased, totally glowing review of Lancome'sLancome L'extreme Waterproof Mascara . You have been warned.
How It Works: Well, it's a mascara, innit? It works by making your eyelashes look darker, longer, lusher and lovelier. Or that's the theory, anyway. This one in particular is supposed to mimic the "faux cils" (false eyelashes) look, creating big ole doll-like lashes. But does it work?
Packaging: Like Touche Eclat before it, Faux Ciels comes in YSL's signature gold "tube". It's a look that's working for them, so let's not knock it: and there's no denying it feels satisfyingly expensive when you pcik it up. I like that. 8/10
