Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Vinyl Couture for Summer 2017

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

I dunno about you bit vinyl anything in relation to my eyes or lips just sounds wicked cool.

The new Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Vinyl Couture (expect some vinyl lipgloss or lipstick trend to hit soon I’m sure) is a new color mascara that provides intense, super shiny color to lashes as well as length, volume and curl.

It should be known I never really do well with colored mascara. Most times the color kind of sorta works out but I don’t really get the length or volume I’m looking for. I have yet to find a formula that delivers color along with good long length as well as volume!

So, count me curious about YSL’s formula. These are meant to be worn along or mixed and matched to create different looks. The mascara comes in a variety of shades to compliment different eyes colors like Aubergine or purple is ideal for brown and green eyes while green looks fabulous on hazel eyes and blue intensifies the shade of blue eyes.

Mirage Hazel looks like a particular gorgeous shade!

The concept is an interesting one and the packaging makes it terribly appealing but the $29 price tag might not be everyone’s jam!

Shades include:

  • Clash Black
  • Unpredictable Aubergine
  • Excitement Green
  • Mirage Hazel
  • Trouble Blue
  • Madness Fuchsia
  • Craze Purple
  • Storm Dark Sparkle
  • Fire Gold Sparkle

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I almost ordered one yesterday but then I remembered I already have several mascaras in my shelf waiting to be worn. I’ll probably order this one soon. I think I want the Aubergine.

    I’ve been waiting for your review to pull the trigger! I have those Hazel eyes and LOVE the green! Hope you get to try them!

    Other colored mascaras just don’t impress me..

  • Rachel R.

    Gorgeous! I love colored mascaras, but I’m allergic to most brands of mascara. I use Nyx Color Mascara and Jordana Dramatic Effects over Tarte Opening Act or UD Subversion mascara primer.

    I bought aborigine, black sparkle, and the green . Can we say, totally disappointing?! Yes we can!!!! No length to lashes, the color barely registered except to stain the underneath part of my eye! Had a heck of a time removing the under eye stain too. If these were found at the dollar store they would barely be worth purchasing save the rich packaging and decent smell of the product.

    • Isabella Muse

      oh no that sucks Sueu! Off my wish list now! Thanks for informing me! You saved me some $$!

  • Andrea

    Where is this mascara sold??? I don’t know why I can’t find it in the stores or online.

    • Isabella Muse

      You can’t find it because it was a summer 2016 limited edition release, it’s gone now. Hopefully they’ll bring it back with some other collection in the future.

        They actually pulled the product from retail. I’m not sure the reason but would assume it was because of it’s horrible performance. I know it was pulled because I was part of the Influenster campaign and before the end of the campaign we received emails saying something on the lines of thanks for your participation but there is no need to further complete activities. When I looked it was gone from every retail site, including YSL.
