October 2013 Favorites & YSL Baby Doll Mascara Review4:33 PM
Hey guys! This month has been pretty intense (as Halloween season always is for me) so a lot of my favorites this month have been products that have been my go-to's when I don't have time to think about what to apply for makeup. That's not to say that the new items aren't spectacular! On the contrary, included are a few products which may be my future holy grail, omg-can't-live-without-it products. Check out my loves below.

I want to take a little time to share my love for YSL's Baby Doll Mascara. This is one of the few non-waterproof mascaras that I deem as passable for holding a curl on my short, straight lashes (my blog post on mascara tips if you didn't see it). It's still not as crazy curl holding as its waterproof cousin, but definitely one of my favorite mascaras I've tried to date.
The brush wand it my favorite kind of plastic, spiky bristles which I find applies mascara in clean, even layers which helps to prevent clumps. It also has small enough bristles that it grabs every tiny hair.
This results in being the perfect mascara for lower lashes. I'm not kidding, they come out perfect every time in 1 coat. Clean, long, and added volume without going clumpy or spidery.
This is a snapshot of my post-Baby Doll eye from my Elegant Date Night tutorial and can you see how my paltry lashes just look like they are naturally awesome? Yeah, it's the mascara. ;)
Now, if I could only find one that opens my eyes like this but holds my upper lash curl all day... Maybe it's wishful thinking but for now, this comes close to the top of my list for favorite mascaras.
Readers, have you tried YSL mascara? What is your favorite mascara for upper/lower lashes? Let me know in the comments!
