Disappointing products

YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils I had high hopes for this mascara after seeing a popular YouTuber saying it was her favourite of all time.  Initially, I liked it – it does give lovely long lashes, but after a few uses it began to feel clumpy and started to flake quite badly.  YSL claim…
