I’ve been using Lancôme’s Définicils High Definition Mascara for years, but recently switched to Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll Mascara. I was shopping in Sephora with a friend and realized I needed mascara. I asked a sales assistant which non-waterproof version she thought was best, and she recommended YSL’s Babydoll Mascara.
I decided to give it a bash and I’m pleased that I did. I prefer it to the Lancôme mascara I was using before. The magic lies in the soft rubber bristle brush, which applies the mascara a lot more evenly and smoothly than conventional mascara brushes with hard bristles. Wow. I love this mascara.
I also bought an eyelash curler for nostalgic reasons more than anything else. It takes me back to my Mum’s makeup drawer in the ‘70s, which was the last time I used an eyelash curler. I was seven or eight at the time and now, 35 years later, I have one that looks exactly the same. With the memories of my late Mum fading a little, it is very special to get a little reminder of her every time I open my makeup drawer.
