The photos tell most of the story. Of course, I added this YSL Effet Faux Cils Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner cream eyeliner in Cherry Black (05) to my arsenal after the black one and the gorgeous Sea Black have become favorites, so it was a sure thing. Cherry Black is a complex black-red-purple with shimmer. The photos were taken in full afternoon sun under a skylight, so you can see every color nuance. When light is not as strong the eyeliner is mostly a black-based aubergine and the micro shimmer is even more subtle.
The formula of YSL Effet Faux Cils Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner is smooth, soft and foolproof. It works with any eyeliner brush type, from thin and fine to angled. And YSL was not kidding about the long-wear thing. Nothing short of a heavy duty eye makeup remover can make it budge.
Bottom Line: a winner.
YSL Effet Faux Cils Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner ($25) is available at the counters and from yslbeautyus.com.
