{the answer is...}



I think maybe some of you thought I was trying to trick you, but I wasn't! While the difference between the mascaras was subtle to the eye, I definitely have a favorite. The YSL was by far superior in terms of texture, thickening, ease of application, and to me it almost looked like I had more lashes.
The YSL is the mascara in the first photo on top. I am officially addicted!
By the way, Saks Fifth Avenue online and in stores is offering free deluxe samples of the Singulier mascara with any YSL purchase (& free shipping). My Saks was all out of samples, but Bloomingdales was happy to oblige.

Trying to decide what else to purchase? I love the YSL matte and radiant pressed powder, and the pretty gold case looks so elegant in the handbag. :)

I'm so happy you posted on YSL. I've been wanting to try the powder/foundation. But now I must also try the mascara. I've been using Bobbi Brown for a few years now but for some reason I think she changed something in the foundation. Or maybe my skin is changing with age because it's too cakey (if you know what I'm talking about). A friend recommended YSL. Happy to get a second opinion.
