YSL Babydoll Eyeliner Review

Recently I got a bonus points deal with Debenhams as I spent over a certain amount of £ at YSL, which meant that I had £15 to spend on my beauty card. I have been looking for the perfect eyeliner for a while now, and after seeing this one online and reading the reviews, I thought that I had to try it out. I wouldn't usually spend more that £10 on an eye-liner, but as I had a spare £15 on my beauty card I took the opportunity to invest in this cute little £25 liquid eye liner by Yves Saint Laurent.

At first when this arrived in the post I was a little confused as the packaging was different to the packaging pictured online - but everything else does seem the same as the product shown Debenhams website. Although I have to say - I do really this packaging. It is light, small and would be very easy to take around with you.

As for the product itself, with the first use I found it much more difficult to create a thin line and the perfect flick, than my humble £6 Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner pen. Alas, on the second attempt, I did manage to create a thin line with a 'cat eye' flick, which I quite liked. I think this will become much easier to use with practise, as I am usually used to using a pen eyeliner - which I think does give slightly more control.
As you can see from the swatch, It is very black and pigmented which is great, and it also dries really fast- another bonus!
What I was really looking for, was an eyeliner which didn't dry out after a few weeks (like my Maybelline one does) and one that will last longer throughout the day. I have had this less than a week, so I haven't put this to the test yet - but from other reviews hopefully this product will last longer than a few weeks! Also - It did last throughout the day. Yippee.
Overall, I do really like this product but I defiantly wouldn't pay £25 for it, as I think the Maybelline Master Precise pen for around just £6 is better value for money!
Has anyone found their holy grail eye liner yet!? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. I was thinking of the maybelline one, because even if you have to replace it more often, I think it'll still be cheaper :)

  2. This sounds good, am yet to perfect the cat flick but perhaps the maybeline one you've mentioned will help start me off!
