Context: I have short and straight dark lashes (unfortunately I was not blessed in this department).
The Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Mascara gave my lashes a good dose of volume and length. The formula is not too wet and does not flake off after hours of wear. The mascara did not clump my lashes and held the curl of my lashes (more than the average mascara does). The brush bristles on the wand are short plastic triangular stubs; it spreads the product evenly during application which allows for a minimal clumping.
The retail price of this product is $37.00 CAD at Sephora. This one is quite an investment to make, however it is owning up to all the claims it’s packaging has made regarding volume and length.
