YSL Shocking Mascara Review



I think everybody out there knows how much I love the Maybelline Sensational Mascara. It has been my go to for so long and I didn’t think that anything would be able to top it. But, then I discovered the YSL Shocking Mascara and it completely changed my mind.

Even though I quite clearly love makeup. I just thought that a mascara was a mascara and they all did the same thing. I didn’t see how one could be £4.99 and another £30 when in the end they all make your lashes look longer, thicker and black.

I guess I was a little ignorant to how good higher end mascaras can be. In my opinion the YSL mascara is honestly one of the nicest makeup products that I have used. Now that I have tried it I really cannot see myself using another mascara for a very long time. I do still have my Maybelline Sensational Mascara and I still do like it and I will use it, but this one really has topped it.




First up in this review I just want to mention the packaging. When I pay this much for a product I at least expect it to look nice and this product is simply stunning. It looks just like the YSL Touché Éclat, which is also a really stunning product. I love how at the top is the little embossed YSL logo and then the ‘Shocking’, looks like it has been handwritten. It really is a high end luxurious product.

This mascara I find does have that classic YSL scent. You will know if you have used one of their foundations or other products that they all have a distinctive scent and that is the same for this mascara. I was a little dubious at first about putting something so heavily scented around my eyes but I have been using this for weeks and had no issues with it.

When you pull the wand out of the tube on this mascara it looks very wet like there is a lot of product on the spooley but when you apply it to your lashes it doesn’t seem like it is too much. It is just enough to give the lashes a nice thick coating. When I apply a coat of this and allow it to dry and then add another it just looks so nice and full and it lets me get away with not wearing any false lashes.



I really think this mascara is really stunning. It is top of the pile for me at the minute and I have been reaching for it every single day without fail. I am sure that I paid £25 for this mascara and I think that is the perfect price for a product of this quality.

As normal I will link below to where you can find this product. Also, if you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will get right back to you!

  1. YSL Faux Cils is my all time favourite mascara and I think I tried this one at one point too. I want to try their new one - The Shock, which has an hourglass brush similar to Too Faced. I must pick this one up again instead of Faux Cils. Great review xx

  3. Great review! I loved my Dior mascara and I want to try the YSL one but for me the Dior has too much fragrance in them. I know the fragrance in Dior and YSL is there so you know when the smell goes away it's time to replace your mascara but for me the smell is just to strong.
