This mascara is “your new go-to for big, bold, party-ready lashes,” says editor Taylore Glynn, who’s wearing YSL Beauty Lash Clash Extreme Volume Mascara on just one eye in the picture above — pretty impressive before/after! It is so good at bringing on the drama that another editor shoved all of her other mascaras to the back of the drawer. The secret is in the combined forces of its formula — volume-building, lengthening, jet-black — and its oversize yet easy-to-maneuver wand. Makeup artists often say that the shape of the wand can predict the mascara’s results and YSL’s extra-large spoolie is certainly indicative of its effects — inflated, dark lashes that look soft and fluffy, not spidery, yet bold. And the formula goes on without flaking. Two to three coats seems to be the sweet spot with this mascara. If you can’t resist the urge to pile on more (we feel you!) and if you happen to get a clump or two, you can easily remove it by gently and quickly pinching the lashes between two clean fingertips.
