YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara dupe: 7€ instead of 32€!





I like experimenting with makeup but always keeping it simple and sober, so why on earth I decided to put on my lashes a blue mascara? Sephora kindly sent to me some colorful bits that I will have never bought myself, so it was the perfect occasion to welcome a blue mascara in my stash! I’ve used it a couple of times and I think this could be a great dupe for the YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara in 05 I’m the trouble.

The brush of this Sephora Volumizing Mascara is very soft and the colour is intense. It’s actually volumizing (after two coats) but nothing crazy and available also in other 6 shades. On me it lasted well for about 5 hours, nap included.

A cool combation for summer is blue eyes and bright coral lips, isn’t it? Here I used Mac Matte Lipstick in Mangrove A46.

Do you ever go out of your comfort zone with your makeup? 🙂




// Mi piace provare nuovi prodotti ma non nuovi colori, però, quando ho ricevuto il mascara V.O.L.U.M.E di Sephora nel colore 03 Blue League, ho colto l’occasione per sperimentare qualcosa di diverso. L’ho usato un paio di volte, mantenendo il resto del trucco molto sobrio, e penso sia un’ottima alternativa al costoso Vinyl Couture Mascara di YSL in 05 I’m the trouble.

La caratteristica che mi ha colpita di più di questo mascara è stata la morbidezza dell’applicatore. Il colore è blu oltremare intenso (dopo due passate) e l’effetto volumizzante effettivamente c’è, anche se non è pazzesco. Su di me ha resistito bene per cinque ore, pisolino incluso. È disponibile in altre 6 tonalità, anche nel classico colore nero.

Ho pensato che la combinazione occhi blu e labbra corallo fosse molto estiva, voi cosa ne pensate? Qui ho usato il rossetto matte di Mac in Mangrove A46.

Anche voi fate fatica a uscire dalla comfort zone quando si tratta di makeup? Come vi trovate con i prodotti di Sephora? 🙂

    • I can wear coral lipsticks only in summer when I’m a little bit tanned, otherwise it just doesn’t go with my complexion. Blue mascara is a new thing for me, but I quite like it.
      Thank you for reading 😀 xx

  • Lol, I was gifted a blue mascara from a relative a few months ago and I actually enjoyed switching it :). It’s good to give yourself a break from the regular one and it makes it easier to stand out. Wishing you a great week ahead! x


    • And it’s so summery, isn’t it? <3 Have a lovely week xx

  • This blue mascara looks AMAZING on your lashes! I think Sephora Collection is very underrated in general and I, myself am guilty of ignoring it.

    • I admit I haven’t tried enough stuff from them because I trust more other brands (L’Oréal, Maybelline, Kiko for some products..) for the same price point, but I loved this PR package! So nice to try a mascara so out of my comfort zone. 🙂 oh and thank you for your nice words x

  • That’s a really great and affordable dupe x

    Buono a sapersi, sopratutto se non si vuole spendere tanto per mascara dai colori “pazzi”! 🙂
